Servus zam!
Actually, I'm totally on woody scents; but unfortunately, more and more woody fragrances are heading in the same direction: at the end, that is, in the base, always more and always the "wrong" wood comes to the fore: musty, rotten, wet, old, mushroomy rotten wood!
So smells wood but not! So smells forest! But this is something completely different!!
I want a wood scent, not a forest scent!
Sure, a forest fragrance can also be beautiful - but mostly riechts just exaggerated old and musty.
Fresh - or even better: freshly cut wood smells: fresh (logo), woody(! - also logo), but above all very ethereal and sometimes even mentholisch.
Imagine: a freshly sawn mountain pine, a cypress, a larch, a Swiss stone pine, a thuje - you know the smell; you know what I mean.
For me, this is the epitome of a fresh, invigorating scent!!
Joa, there are many such fragrances that at least start in this similarity, but then all tend towards "forest muff".
As an example, Hinoki is called here: begins wonderfully - drifts then but unfortunately also ...
Not so this one!
He begins with a fresh, peppery woodiness, which remains so over long stretches!
Citrus is there for me, but rather insignificant.
It comes but then very much cedar to it and at some point a certain sweetness, which is apparently THE player here!? No sweetness that tastes / smells like anything; just imagine, one pours some sugar over it...
And so it now goes in a completely different direction: and into the "beautiful" - not the dark, musty!
And that's why this fragrance stays on the "beautiful" - on the "light" side of life and is thus much much easier to wear than other woody fragrances!
With me, the fragrance lasts forever; and when I write forever, then I mean it so!
I spray in the morning 3-5x on the chest, then it smells all day into the evening.
Even at night and even the next day in the evening I can still smell the scent!
For all the above reasons and the for me 1a durability, this fragrance is for me for a long time (and again!) The number 1 and actually always and everywhere wearable ...
Unfortunately, no longer to get; therefore, I have me in time 4 bottles put aside! =)

Good evening!

Do you know the Totengrund in the Lüneburg Heath?
This fragrance reminds me of it: woody juniper (with a little sweetness)!

Trees to spray on
Hello, hello everyone. Welcome to another comment from me. I'm glad that you apparently still have not had enough of me and continue to read my fragrance reports,... for whatever reason :D

Today it's about Eau de Cade by L'Occitane en Provence, which translates as Eau de Juniper and you already know what kind of fragrance it could be about here.
Soo, if I look at the bottle or the bottle, then he seems to be from this series of L'Occitane fragrances like the great Eau des Baux (... O de Bo? :DD), so I hope times that the fragrance smells just as great here. Juniper does sound nice, and together with cedar it sounds like quite a woody scent here, but we'll see.

And yes, it's a men's scent again, I see right now. So no one can say that I would only comment on women's fragrances after all... :D
Well, on to the fragrance!

The fragrance:
The scent starts off slightly citrusy and sweetly fruity. The citrusy scents would have to be the usual suspects like bergamot or lemon, but the sweet and fruity scents come from pink pepper. On top of that, there are woody notes that I can't put my finger on, but since they don't smell like the cedar indicated, I'm assuming that this soft and woody scent comes from the juniper. To that end, the scent has a slightly powdery and clean character.
As time goes on, the woody note seems more and more like cedar to me. You probably smell more of a mix of cedar and juniper, but the cedar is definitely in the foreground now.
Towards the base, the scent gets a bit more fruity and sweet. And warmer, I think that now juniper and cedar radiate about the same intensity and provide a nice, warm and woody fragrance. The background here is slightly herbaceous and tart. In the later base, it's best to smell almost only the tart, woody cedar.

The sillage and the durability:
The sillage is not the strongest, so the scent will only be best smelled up close.
Also the shelf life is now not soo long turned out, but at least he remains already so five hours on the skin.

The flacon:
The bottle looks like a somewhat flat apothecary bottle and also has the appropriate brown color for it. On the front you see a large label that at first glance looks cluttered with its many text, but on closer inspection looks quite nicely designed. A nice bottle, especially since it is not simply rectangular like many other bottles.

Yes, Eau de Cade has turned out to be quite a nice fragrance, as I thought it would be. It is woody and warm, but also slightly sweet and tart. Since its charisma is not soo strong, it could well be used as an everyday fragrance, so also at work and so. And this also at any time, because the fragrance always goes, you can use it in my opinion regardless of the season always.

Since he smells so nice, he is worth for me in any case times a test, just like incidentally also Eau des Baux, which I find slightly better, but just both scents very successful.

Huii, that was a short comment... and free of all possible complaining... ah, I'm just tired today... or but it's because we here after countless rounds of Call of Duty and the killing of tens of thousands of enemies also times something "softer zocken" and become more effeminate... Stardew Valley, where you have to manage a farm,... plant seeds, breed animals, make mayonnaise from the eggs of the chickens and sell it and of course try to conquer the girls in the village... which of course doesn't work out very well (quote one of the girls "I'll be honest, I don't want to dance with you!", waaah, now I'm already getting turned down by virtual girls, aaaargh :(((((((

Bah, what the heck, anyway that's it from me too! I wish you all a nice evening, see you :)

Juniper instead of cedar, not everyone gets the 10! ;-)
I've already sneaked around the various scents of L'Occitane. The supposed naturalness, the regional image, the brand's unexcitement are what appeal to me. More by chance I discovered that there is a small shop of L'Occitane in Cologne. I already knew that I liked the fragrances "Eau de Cade" and "L'Eau de L'Occitane" from tests in the duty-free area at the airport. Only with "Eau des Baux" I couldn't start that much, it was too herb-smoky for me, a bit too penetrating.

Now it has become "Eau de Cade", which is somewhat more earthy and woody than its almost identical brother "L'Eau de L'Occitane". It has to be said that juniper plays a decisive role here, more precisely the so-called prick or cedar juniper, as the summary on the package also reveals. In the fragrance pyramid you should therefore replace cedar with juniper!!!

Now to the fragrance itself. For me, "Eau de Cade" starts with one of the best top notes I know: fresh, balsamic, herbaceous, to put in. Nothing artificial penetrates into my nose, in addition there is a subtle soapy touch that promises purity. Gradually, the woody takes over the first violin, and it plays virtuously: no sawdust, no ashes, simply fragrant wood, paired with the spice of juniper. But even after two hours the fragrance still remains fresh and peppery in its basic orientation. Chapeau!

With "Eau de Cade" I have certainly found one of those fragrances that I may have been looking for for years. Neither grandpa image nor hipster stuff and all without a disturbing element. Somehow soft and yet striking. And (very important): no comparison to anything that has already come under my nose, so absolutely independent, I think. You can even find yourself cool when someone asks "What's that?" :-) Because here image is nothing and smell everything!
