This article will address soap fragrances, of which cedarwood and its derivative are a part. Cedarwood is a good fixative; it has a rounding effect on the odor of other perfume components and does not discolor in soap.

Single flower types: This category includes carnation, chrysanthemum, lilac, muguet, gardenia, magnolia, rose, sweet pea, violet, and so forth.
Established soap fragrance types: This category includes almond, cucumber, lavender, lily-milk, palmolive, pine, reuter, sandalwood and Windsor, among others.
Fantasy bouquets: This category includes fougere, cashmere, chypre, cuir de Russie, foin coupe, peau d’Espagne, musk and tabac.
