Cypress Absolute / Green, Resinous, Ambery w/ Balsamic undertone / $60 oz Cupressus sempervirens

  • Product # 1429
  • Origin France


Despite their simplicity of outline, the cypresses are not monotonous nor changeless. I know an avenue of ancient trees in an Alban villa. Their vast trunks are cut and seamed and hollowed by the years. Their tops are blasted and broken. They have suffered and resisted through a thousand mountain storms, but, in the failing light of an autumn afternoon, they look weary and frail, as if the moment were near when their enduring mortality must yield to "the unimaginable touch of time." At the end of another road in the same villa there is a tall young cypress that sways with every breath. Slim and green as a martyr's palm, it is, like that, a thing of joy and victory.
The cypresses are companionable and protecting. Two and two at tall gateways, in thin defile along a climbing wall, in close ranks like battalions, they guard the homes of the living, and watch where the dead sleep. Their welcome greets the traveller on each return to "the land of lands," and their farewell follows him when his north-bound train pulls out into the dusk.

Italian Sketches By Sophie Jewett

Cypress Absolute is a very thick green liquid(not pourable at room temperature) with a warm, radiant, green resinous-ambery bouquet with a sweet balsamic undertone of fine tenacity.

In natural perfumery it is used in amber bases, forest notes, colognes, chypres, Oriental bouquets, incense perfumes, sacred essences, fougeres

Steffen Arctander says in Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural Origin: " Cypress Absolute is produced in very small quantities and usually upon deman. However, this product if far more interesting for amber perfumes, chypres, colognes, pine fragrances, etc, than the essential oil."
