ZeroMagic -

Cedar wood should smell like cedar wood essential oil as LM uses essential oils diluted so as to be skin-safe. Depending on the botanical name of the cedar it may smell slightly different but on average it should have a dry but smooth woody, sweet, balsamic fragrance.

Cedar wood is also a base note and fixative, and perfumes are composed, usually, of a top note (the initial scent), a middle note (the "heart" of the scent) and a base note (the scent that lingers.). Cedar wood would be used to "anchor" the other scents in a perfume or to "fix[ative]" them in place.

Hope this helps!

RevJames is correct -- Cedar Wood comes in a few variants, depending on the species, but every one of them has the fragrance of ... Cedar Wood. We use the pure essence and cut it with a carrier to make it skin-safe.

I am going to jump in here as I love Cedarwood oil. It doesn't smell like perfume ( although as RevJames mentioned, it is used in perfumes as a base note). Doesn't smell like tobacco either. I find tobacco has a sharp smell to it. Cedarwood has a wonderful deep woody and earthy fragrance. I find it mysterious and relaxing. It leans more towards Sandalwood than Rosewood (much sharper) although still very much a unique fragrance.
