Virginia Cedar, also called "red cedar" because of its color, comes to us from the United States. Virginia cedar is a conifer of the Cupressaceae family. It grows in poor, dry soils with plenty of sunlight. The smell of cedar is dry, green and resinous… It is an exact replica of the smell of pencil. Today, cedar is the starting point for a host of woody notes. In compositions, it is mainly used as a base note, because it has an impeccable hold. Virginia cedar goes perfectly with patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, but also with flowers and fruits. It then brings elegance, but above all character.
It is one of the ingredients present in our Virgo fragrance!
