Do you recall the nostalgic scent emanating from your school pencil case? That delightful fragrance is none other than the essence of Cedar, the very wood employed in pencil production. While it possesses the expected woody aroma, it also exudes a captivating freshness, tinged with resinous undertones. If you've ever strolled through a lush evergreen forest, the scent of cedar will transport you back to that serene environment.
What is Cedarwood?
The concentrated oil derived from the foliage of cedar trees cultivated in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco or Virginia in the USA is obtained through steam distillation. This potent oil is not only utilized in aromatherapy for its calming and balancing properties but is also responsible for evoking memories. While traditionally found in the background as a base note, cedar perfumes are now stepping into the spotlight.

From the fragrance of pencil shavings to the alluring aroma of fine cigar boxes, cedar is renowned for its warm and woody scent.
