Aroma: The complexity of this aroma is amazing. It is a very rich, warm, sensual, exotic, and wonderfully deep woody aroma upon the first smell. I find it to also have a subtle earthy and smoky aspect that rounds out the rich smell from the wood it is distilled from. It is aromatically pleasing for any masculine blend, but soft enough for even the most sensitive of noses. I find it to be a great alternative to the Virginia Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) with a much deeper bouquet of aroma to fill the senses.
Personal notes: I love to use a drop or two with castile soap after a long day on my feet. I find that it is not only relaxing, but aids in calming joint and muscular concerns. I also often use this in formulating sleep and anxiety type blends.
