If you've never smelt true Atlas Cedar oil before you might not know what to look for. This oil has a syrupy-ness to it and a deep, powdery woodsy scent. It's very rare to find REAL atlas cedar oil and especially at such a good price. I use it in one of my best selling products so I use a lot! My first time using this company's version and I am switching permanently to this. It is very high grade, super effective and fun because it's so well priced. Amazing in the bath!
