Cypress, Crete is a mobile liquid with a sweet-balsamic scent slightly similar to pine, templin, juniper berry, and cardamom without olfactory traces of cineole. The low notes are lasting and sweet with ambra characteristics. These complexities have resulted in Cypress being used to enhance pine oil and blends using pine oil.
