One of the most quintessential evergreen aromatics in the world, Cedarwood Oil is sweet and woody, with a creamy balsamic aroma comparable to fresh pencil shavings. One of the first essential oils ever distilled from nature, cedarwood is widely utilized for its smooth sawdust-like fragrance, which is almost universally applicable throughout the flavor and fragrance industry. Each variety has its own unique usage and nuance, though the overall aroma retains a characteristically woody odor.

Its sweet and camphoraceous aroma contains a cresylic nuance, as well as some tenacious woody undertones. Within perfumery, Atlas Cedarwood is heavily used for its fixative effects, as well as its versatile odor which blends well with a variety of other floral and woody fragrances.

Cedarwood Oil Chinese

Historically, Cedarwood Oil Chinese has been steam-distilled from the temperate growing Cupressus funebris tree, or “Chinese Weeping Cypress,” which grows throughout southern and central China. The oil’s aroma is recognizably cedar-like, though it retains a spicy and smokiness not found in other cedarwood varieties. Chinese cedarwood oil also lacks the woody punch common in Texas or Virginia material. This is mainly due to the oil’s lower concentration of the all-important cedrol component, which contributes to cedarwood’s overall woody characteristics.
