Super: formal - prefix from the Latin super, meaning above, beyond, expressing superiority of quality, of the highest degree, hierarchical superiority; informal someone or something that is exceptional, superior, extraordinary. Cedar: masculine derived from the Latin cedrus, large tree with horizontal branches native to Africa, Asia and the Americas, diffuses a scent of dry wood, sagebrush and turpentine. There is at first this name for a promise of extreme quality. Four syllables and an alliteration "er" following the example of a melody. Dry, powerful, fusing on the skin towards the nose, the cedar wood is doubtless one of those whom we manage best to identify. Recollection of lead of pencil, he acts as one Madeleine de Proust to all those who still remember their pupil's writing desk. Suggestive of houses in beams of wood and of Scandinavian furniture, he spreads a modernity without defect. In the pallet of the perfumer, he has the power to dope formulae, to inject some energy, to bring some verticality. Often imitated by the chemistry, the cedar wood of Virginia is nevertheless irreplaceable. Majestic, his purest gasoline is of an addicting complexity. Wishing to pay tribute in this material of exception, Ben Gorham presents Great Cedar. A mixed fragrance with continuous vibrations. At first magnetized by a shiver of rose, the nose perceives the cedar in the tachycardes beatings. An increase in importance softened by the presence of silky musk and a suspicion of vetiver anchored well in the earth. Great Cedar is not a simple perfumed vapor. He pulses on the body. Top notes: Rose petals. Heart notes: Virginian cedarwood. Base notes: Silk musk, Haitian vetiver.
