Eau de Cédrat by L’Occitane 2015


Post by Portia


When Eau de Cedrat (I call it Cedrat in my head, so we’ll use that for this post). When Cedrat was first released by L’Occitane I was given some of the range to try. I kept the Shower Gel and Soap for myself and gave the rest to friends or in giveaways so other people could try the products and give me feedback. One person said they are so impressed that they already went to a L’Occitane store and purchased more of the range, another friend loves the fragrance and has used quite a bit of his bottle and I went and repurchased at full retail a new shower gel.

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Cedrat bark, bergamot
Heart: Blue ginger, nutmeg
Base: Cedar, cashmere wood

Currently I have drenched myself in Cedrat to combat the humid night heat we are having in Sydney at the moment. Don’t misunderstand me, I love the heat and relish the Sydney summer. Night time though I find it hard to sleep in muggy heat, it’s 1am and still 21C (70F) with 86% humidity so I’ve slipped into my office and spritzed liberally. A cool, sharp, sweet citrus opening that is bold and energising, clear bergamot with almost no breath or pith that runs headlong into zinging, singing ginger. They are quite the pair, fizzing merrily away like a lemon squash and yet managing to be refreshing.

Cedrat is not nearly as nuanced or storied as a cologne, it’s a bright and forthright citrus fortified by a few bit players that help it maintain buoyancy. I’m fragrantly wafting off to bed now, Jin has installed new ceiling fans and it would be rude not to go lie under one with him. I know that there will be a very slight waft of amorphous woods and a hint of citrus left tomorrow morning.

This is a perfect gift for anyone who is aware of their appearance but not deeply into the whole vanity trip. A casual, easy care set that means you or your partner can have a single scent right through the bathing and living process. Easy peasy, looks and smells great and it won’t break the bank.

  1. Portia,
    The idea of cool citrus is appealing anytime of the year. Thanks for pointing this one out. To answer the question: No, I don’t do a fully integrated regime. I always seem to be in a hurry no matter how much time I have. Why???

    • Azar,
      I think hurry is a mindset, the need to feel perpetual motion and the adrenaline rush of eternal lateness. Next time you bathe just take 10 seconds to really enjoy the experience, smell your products, enjoy the incredible gift that we are given to indulge in running hot & cold fresh water every day. The hurry will disappear. Just 10 seconds, promise.
      Even more fun when you integrate.
      I get preachy, sorry.

  2. Sounds dreamy, Portia. No intigrated routine for me: Aveda shampoo/conditioner, Maja soap, Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Moisturizer (ZING!!), Chanel Anti-Aging ( yeah, right.) eye gel.

    I love L’Occitaine products, but they frustrate me when they discontinue something you love, never to be seen again. They do it alot. Like Costco. Buy multiples if you find something you love at L’Occitaine!! Hope you and Jin are having a blast!!
