Are aromatic cedar trees the same as regular cedar trees or are there any other species that produces intents?
From Contributor X:
I don't really get your question but will give it a shot. Aromatic cedar is also known as eastern red cedar. It's not a cedar but a species of juniper, which are in the cypress family (I think). It has other names in various regions as well. Scientific name is juniperus virginiana.
When you ask if there's other species that produce intents I am pretty sure you're asking if there's cedar trees that are also aromatic (incense). None that smell like the aromatic cedar you are asking about - it has a smell all its own and as far as I'm aware nothing else comes close to that smell. Western cedar has a powerful aroma but smells more like some kind of petroleum product to me. Cypress has an aroma when you cut it and I hate it. Spanish cedar has a powerful aroma which I love; it's the cedar that humidors are often lined with. There are many different species of cedar and many if not most of them have some degree of aroma, but my region has only a few species of cedars. I would be interested to know how Lebanon cedar smells.
