First off: I really like Demeter scents, despite the nanosecond lasting power. I know 'em well, for all their strengths and weaknesses.
So I was SO disappointed when I got Giant Sequoia. I was hoping for something woody, chypre, forestry. Giant Sequoia smells like an aldehydic interpretation of what a shampoo manufacturer might deem "Forest Fresh." It's all chem lab mixing stick but nothing even remotely linked to nature. Demeter should stick to doing single note scents and not try for fuller interpretations.
Sawdust is so much better at capturing fresh wood. Skip Giant Sequoia and mix your own starting from Sawdust.

I got this on clearance at Marshalls, so I couldn't resist. I was praying that this would have the woody pine snap and crackle of CdGs Sequoia, but alas, it isn't even all that woody. It is more powdery with a sandalwood whisper than anything else, which was a bummer. It's nice enough for a room spray, but as all Demeter's, lasts only for a few minutes. Where's my giant tree???
