Gluing aromatic cedar?

I am lining a armoire with aromatic cedar. Is it possible to glue the cedar or will the glue overpower or hurt the scent of the cedar? Thanks.

Use the proper construction adhesive, not wood workers glue.
Apply "dabs" to hold in place.
I'd contact SikaFlex for a recommendation.

I used hot melt glue for the cedar lined chests I built.

Depending on the thickness of the cedar, you could also T&G it and toe nail with brads. This would allow the cedar to move independently from the rest of the case. If well thought out, you'd have very few brads (maybe even NONE!) to hide, as each board would hide the previous board's brads.

No, it won't hurt the smell. One assumes you are not encasing the cedar in glue.

Almost any typical woodworking glue will not present problems. Unless you're using an atypical glue, like construction adhesive, and keeping the armoire closed while the glue sets up/cures you shouldn't have any problems.

I'd be more concerned w/ possible cross grain orientation and other construction details than the glue/scent.
What's the dimensions of the cedar? I like the T&G groove suggestion or making free-standing inner liner to slip in (what I do for cedar chest liners) or some other way that doesn't rely on glue alone (preferably at all other than as a "traditional" joint)...
imo, ymmv, $0.02, etc., etc., ...

I took a little different approach to this on two half-trunks I made for my boys to take to camp... I glued up eastern red cedar panels and sized them the same as the trunk bottom and lid panels. When I cut the dados for the panels I took the thickness of the cedar into account and simply used the dado to hold the cedar in place. BTW, I lined the bottom and lid with cedar using this method.

I like that approach, too...may be (probably is?) too late for OP, methinks... :(
Did you leave it so could at some point remove them to renew surface of the cedar? That's one reason I've done the slide-in on chests.

If I ever renew the surface I figure I'd be using a card scraper and can get into the corners just fine. I suspect that this will be a big IF as these trunks will likely see 6-8+ summers at Boy Scout camp as well as use in their room between camp sessions. I hold little hope that they'll be in pristine condition at the end of that experience. ;~) The trunks are well built with the sides and tray held together with hand cut dovetails and there are oak rub strips all around... but still, spending weeks in tents and lean-tos with boys they will be beat up in short order!
