Silver Cedar

Post by Boudicca » Thu Jun 07, 2018 10:37 pm

Silver Cedar combines Possets' Silver accord with Virginia Cedarwood. A satisfying, soothing and calming blend, perfect for everyday use! This silver is sure to become a classic.



Vanilla, a hint of light florals, a bit of lemon and Virginia Cedar.

This is really delightful. It starts off heavy on the cedar and then settles into a light silver/cedar tone that is just right for almost any time, any day, any event. Congrats!--ya' done good! I'm ordering more.

This is a strong, earthy and beautiful cedar note that is softened by the silver accord. I have been testing many perfumes over several houses the past few days, and this is the stand out favorite,

Silver Cedar is well-worthy of joining my two other loves in this line- Silver Sandalwood and Sukver Oude.

As the name implies it opens heavy on the cedar with the silver accord supporting it. It stays like that slowly losing the hard cedar edge by about 45 minutes in. It then transforms into something very similar to silver sandalwood, but this has a syrup like aspect to it on me. I do not have that happen with the SS, that one actually goes a bit skanky on me, but SC is not cloying. I get a similar thing from Betsy I believe, only that one went too sweet I had to scrub it off, as foody scents are not my thing. This gets syrupy, but it is balanced out with a dryness like you would get in a chypre, like in say Death (no, it does not smell like Death merely a reference point). I do not love cedar so this is not really enjoyable to me for the first half hour to 45 minutes of wear. I also do not slather this one or I would need to scrub it. However, as much as the opening is not a happy place for me, the dry down is amazing. And as cedar often will go to celery on me blissfully that did not occur. It smells like cedar essential oil. The end turns into a warm woody scent but it has a spice edge to it though it does not smell like cinnamon or clove or even cassia. I think this is one that aged a few years will be exquisite and exotic with a richness to rival the high wood men's scents of the fifties like Eau d'Hermes or Eau Savage. If you love deep wood scents and enjoy the classic "barber shop" 50's man scents I would put this in that category. I don't know that I will get a full bottle of it, as I am letting my sample age as we speak, but it is lovely. As cedar and I do not really get along I would never have even thought of trying it but it is masterfully done and much more complex than many of the other silvers for me like SVan. or even SS. Honestly mixing SS and S Cedar could turn out amazing, but it is entirely too hot here to even consider that mix until after the Christmas season.

You are correct that there is Cedar Essential Oil in Silver Cedar. Specifically it is oil from the heartwood of the Virginia Blood Cedar. Truly delightful stuff!
