APOM pour Femme by Maison Francis Kurkdijan features a breathtaking orange blossom heart over a base of androgynous cedarwood. Or perhaps Chanel No. 19 with its melancholy heart of rose and iris and a woody base of vetiver and cedarwood.
She should probably try the unfortunately discontinued unisex Escada Sport Country Weekend. It's my go to for a nice cedar chest scent . Maybe Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Extrem'e? I haven't tried it but Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is supposedly lemon and cedar LOTS of cedar .A customer where I work drenched herself in Lt.Blue -I could taste it from across the store!
On a positive note my Sis-in-law's elder sister is considering Lt blue for her this year's scent .I may need to sample/mini purchase this -if only" for reference".
Crap. I should have been more specific. She's not a fan of orange blossom and roses. She does like iris though. Her favorite scents are Astor Place, Light Blue, Coach to name a couple. But she really likes cedar tones but we are having a tough time finding a cedar she likes.
Thanks for the suggestions and for watching my channel.
Moschino I love Love has light florals and cedar, but it smells a lot of D&G Blue. I really like both of those. I've been enjoying Dior Dolce Vita, but that's not a light floral. The cedar in it is very nice, however. Just saying. And there is an "eau" version, but I've never sniffed it so I don't know what that's like. Good luck, hope you get some good suggestions! I like a well done cedar myself, but I hate when it's harsh and scratchy.
A dry woody aroma with a bouquet of roses. It features atlas, Virginian and Hiba cedar wood, reminding of Native Americans and their rituals. It is a part of the Feminine Collection II Solos. Available as 20 ml EDP
Cedar is a note I really like (as long as it's not too medicinal), but don't find often in women's scents, so I'm enjoying this thread. The only fragrance I've found that's definitely cedar (not simply "woods") and unquestionably feminine is another cheapie-- Avon Rare Sapphires. I find it to be pretty much straightforward cedar and gardenia; not an extraordinary scent, but hits the spot when I wants something that's very cedar-y, floral, and not sweet. Also, I can relate to your wife's not liking orange blossom as white florals are tricky for me, but the gardenia here is easily wearable for me. Another recommendation would be Jo Malone's Sweet Lime and Cedar, but it's more unisex.
By Kilian's new In the City of Sin is very cedary, barely floral with Turkish rose and spicy with ginger, cardamom and cumin. The overall effect is light, dry, fruity, incensy with the rose enhancing the Atlas and Virginia cedar. Plus, the case is gorgeous. It would make a nice holiday gift.
I found the shiseido version of feminite du bois was much woodier and lasted much longer. I would smell it on my jackets even weeks after i wore them with this perfume. unfortunately it is now discontinued and the serge lutens version is much lighter and nowhere near as long lasting. I agree with the suggestion of cedre by serge lutens or ambre sultan which has tart top notes but softens into a beautiful woody dream !

Very late to this but I'll add the current formulation of Alpona parfum. On me at least, candied-ish citrus dries down into a really rich and scratchy cedar. It's what made me realize that I enjoy cedar in fragrance, which in turn is how I ended up in this thread with many fantastic-sounding recommendations!
Whoops, no floral notes to speak of, though - sorry.
Also mentioning certain fresh unisex cedar aspects in Accordo di Ebano by l'Erbolario (in spite of the name rather suggestion far more ebony rather than cedar) while also Frescaessenza and Regine dei Prati by the same house of l'Erbolario, Woods of Windsor Cedar Woods, a few Zara options containing the cedar indication actually in their very name.
All these and more for the more unisex angle just enough the become sufficiently versatile among the light, fresh also at least minimally floral feminine cedar scent options.
