All-natural, unisex and absolutely gorgeous: discover this new fragrance that rises the bar for all green perfumes.
Natural perfume house Abel have just released their sixth vita odor scent. Green Cedar’s the new kid, and a kid it really is: fresh, juicy, bouncy, likeable – very, very likeable. Sweet and transparent, it’s a fun, modern, fashionable juice. Together with Golden Neroli, Green Cedar redefines the term natural perfume taking it to new heights from “a blend of essential oils” to “wait, this is all-natural?”
Abel’s vita odor collection launched 18 months ago, and is available in 20 countries today.
All fragrances are available as 15 ml (€48) and 50 ml (€98) bottles; the first six scents are available in a discovery set, and Green Cedar is available as a single sample (€6).

Abel Green Cedar Review
But let’s have a closer clook at Green Cedar.
The press release promises a scent that “marries a duo of cedars, the first gathered from forests in Texas, the second collected from the wild high in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Twice distilled, the Texas cedar has a clean, dry aspect rarely seen in a cedar fragrance. In contrast to this, the Moroccan cedar is sweet, rich and opulent. Combined with unexpected notes of natural magnolia, cypriol, cardamom, and smoky guaiac wood, the result is an intoxicating and distinctive fragrance.”
For me, Green Cedar is the most innocent of all vita odor perfumes. It’s a very lightweight woody fragrance; clear, bright, fresh but not in a sparkling way, as it has no citrusy and no peppery notes.
The opening is like a breath of fresh forest air, green and slightly balsamic but also mild and sweet. The scent remained the same wavelength of fresh, mild greenness for quite a while on my skin, until melting into a very dry, nearly mineral, woody sillage.
From the Abel range that serves five exquisite, sensual, quite intense yet clearly “natural” numbers and one ambrosial gourmand spark that is Golden Neroli, Green Cedar is the most modern one in terms of catering to the new desire for – let me put it this way – lightness with substance. One of the biggest perfume trends of 2018 are beautifully composed watercolours and masterfully spun gossamer veils, and Green Cedar hits home.
Green Cedar perfectly blends elegance and nonchalance.
Wear it office to opera, and you’ll leave the best olfactive impression.
