This is the closest thing to a “sandalwood” style cedar wood – it is creamy, soft, woody, elegant. None of the sharp terps-like notes that are commonly found in cedar EOs. This is really perfect for a clean cedar effect in a fragrance. This is now my go-to cedar wood for most uses. Robertet really does do stunning work. Every perfumer needs this.
It took me a while to realize how much cleaner this is vs Cedar Atlas eo. Both Atlas and Himalayan cedar oils tend to have weird topnotes that remind me of modeling clay; neither smells much like typical cedar eos. The topnote of this stuff is similar, but much, much weaker (which is a good thing) and fades quickly, and it develops a lovely, delicate and warm cedary and sandalwood quality as it dries down, much softer than Virginia cedar and more cedar/woody than regular Cedar Atlas eo. It’s far more of a base note than the eo and much more refined. Not life-changing but a useful and refined woody material and much easier to blend into a composition vs the eo.
Totally agree with both Jamie and Mark. No “fresh pencil shavings” or sharp notes that you find in your typical Atlas. Soft and smooth, a very versatile cedar..
light woody scent, clean and remind me of frankincense and juniper
elegant and easy to handle.
stunning, try mixing it with orange blossom abs. I just mixed it with a blend of four different rose absolutes and cedar, Himalayan, and bergamont….no need to give the full formula, but this is a noticeable feature.

It is so soft and warm wood that will be ideal for floral fragrance. Without harsh wood notes, reminiscent of a new hay stack. The scent of peace of mind.
This is a gorgeous blond wood that is sans the sour topy note like atlas cedarwood. This is almost sandalwood like for sure. I made a sandalwood melange featuring mysore sandalwood. Imo This robertet atlas heart is sweet creamy sweet wood… delicious yummy.
Well, I’ve probably smelled too many Atlas and Himalayan cedarwood EOs far too often during the last 30-40 years that this ‘Heart’ really makes me think of Sandalwood. This material is all about Cedrus atlantica minus terpenic topnotes. I don’t see any resamblance to sandalwood or even ambery notes. Sandalwood (S. album) is to my nose a warm, balsamic note with some ambery facets. Cedarwood Atlas Heart is in my opinion a cold/clean/blond wood note with some sour (fruity?) aspects to it. I’m writing this just to show differences in individual perception of scents. – Don’t get me wrong: this is a beautiful cedar material representing the soul of Cedrus atlantica for sure.
Soft cedarwood. Much less harsh notes comparing to the others.
