Men take note!  L'Occitane en Provence has added an exciting eau de toilette to their La Collection de Grasse that deserves your attention.  Cèdre & Oranger that recently launched late 2013 is what I consider a wonderful citrus aromatic fragrance for those that are adventurous at heart by perfumer, Karine Dubreuil.

The fragrance has a freshness to it with an underlying woodiness from top notes of orange, bergamot and pine needles.  At the same time, there is an aquatic effect coming through due to a lifting of the crisp citrus carrying the pine with it in the breeze, only that pine has traveled far from the forest to the sea.  

As Cèdre & Oranger develops in the heart with notes of spicy cardamom, red berries and Virginian cedar, the fragrance does an exceptional job of stimulating the senses with a mint type of coolness to it that is manly and full of energy.  This is intriguing, but a confident mix, almost daring you to try to ignore it would be a waste of time.   

In the base, Cèdre & Oranger takes on a new depth that is so sexy.  Like a brooding hero, the fragrance begins to taunt, smoldering with sensuality from notes of warming vetiver and musk.  

My guy was hooked immediately on this scent.  He described it as something different with that coolly refreshing twist to the woods and citrus, definitely classy. 

Though I am not a man, I loved my guy wearing Cèdre & Oranger because it was expertly crafted for today's modern man with how vibrant, but refreshing it was with a sensual undercurrent that was very appealing.  

The 2.5 oz. bottle of Cèdre & Oranger Eau de Toilette retails for $75.  The fragrance is also available in After Shave Balm, Soap, and Shower Gel.  Do visit L'Occitane en Provence and check it out.
