In Morocco there is a region called Middle Atlas, reputed for its Cedar forests. It is like a green oasis of Morocco, the lungs of this country that control the climate and water cycles. These forests are the natural habitat for the 100 years old cedars that have a majesty and power which infuse the air with their woody scent. And because L’Occitane en Provence constructs its perfumes based on natural ingredients, it is naturally to employ the Atlas cedar oil from Morocco as the source of inspiration for an essence.
Notre Flore Cedar, an element in the “Notre Flore” collection is a woody aromatic fragrance for men, arrived on the market in 2007. Similar to all the scents inspired by nature, the list of ingredients is simple, yet carefully selected to produce the desired effects. Notre Flore Cedar opens with notes of grapefruit and birch sap. The heart follows with caraway and tobacco leaf, passing a wealthy sensation of elegance. For the extreme dry down the Tonka bean was employed in combination with the strong Atlas cedar oil from Morocco. I sample Notre Flore Cedar in an L’Occitane store in which I was searching info on Immortelle de Corse. Even though the scent was a suggestion from the sales assistant, I would say that what I have found out it’s quite interesting. The first accords were quite OK, and the fragrance progressed pleasantly on my skin. It is not the type of perfume that will make you go crazy, but it is a nicely done scent, prepared from natural ingredients and if you want to save some money on an Eau de Parfum in your collection, Notre Flore Cedar might be a good choice.
The bottle looks like the ones found in the collection “Voyage en Méditerraneée”, except the upper part, in which there are more cut shapes, that make for a masculine image. The stopper is designed from aluminum and completes fine the rest of the image, giving a stylish look.
Notre Flore Cedar has the character of a noble fragrance and is appropriate for any age group.
