Thats too bad, I would be very disappointed but I don't care much for cedar. I have frankincense tears and they smell really nice but the myrrh is better.

I made a soap recently with a blend of Frankincense. I blended with litsea to help anchor the scent along with a bit of cedarwood. I mixed the essential oil blend with diatomaceous earth and let it sit overnight before making the soap. It is about 8 weeks along now, and still smells really nice. I also ground frankincense and myrrh, and added it to the soap batter. That may be contributing to the scent. I love the way it smells so much that I made a beard oil with the essential oil blend. I will upload a picture of it, I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
