Cypress Oil is a pale yellow, pale olive-greenish or almost colorless, mobile liquid of sweetbalsamic, yet refreshing odor, reminiscent of pine needles oil, templin oil, juniper berry oil, cardamom oil (without the cineole-note), and with a unique dryout of delicate and tenacious sweetness, often compared to that of ambre (labdanum ambre).
