Once upon a time, there was a rich and sacred wood…
While creating Légendes du Cèdre, Christophe Reynaud wanted to create an almost mystical emotion of what he calls a “woody nectar” built around a creamy Cedar with warm and gourmet accents of Saffron and Nutmeg. The presence of the enchanting resins of Ciste and Labdanum evoke the warmth of the earth coming to life on the wearer’s skin. Woody yet also fresh, with the big and powerful note of Cedar at its heart, like a breath of fresh (slightly spicy) air in the middle of a forest. Légendes du Cèdre’s combination of Cedar and fiery spices dyes this perfume with an aura of mystery and makes the journey madly enigmatic.

HOW IT WEARS
Légendes du Cèdre opens with a beautiful rich intensity, the Cedar and Saffron work seamlessly together to introduce us to this fragrance with a powerful punch, creating a buttery smooth woody scent with the sparkling hint of fiery spice shining through. As Légendes du Cèdre develops, the spice does settle and within a few hours we are greeted with a glorious Cedar scent at its heart, with the soft smooth tones of Patchouli and Labdanum creating even more depth. We still get a bit of spice but the gorgeous woods are the star in this fragrant show.
Imagine walking through a wonderful Japanese forest, allowing your senses to take over. Stepping slowing and surely as you take a deep breath, the broken branches on the ground crackle as you step on them, a cool breeze hits your face and you close your eyes to take in all of the scents. The woody intensity of the giant trees, the warm earth surrounding, a light smoky scent is in the fresh warm air. Légendes du Cèdre is the perfect scent for lovers of nature; lovers of rich, warm woody scents with a wonderful spicy twist. We just love this elegant and incredibly captivating woody scent – it has the perfect balance of some real oomph to it whilst still staying true to L’Artisan’s refined French sensibility.
