Cypress absolute is extracted from the leaves of Cupressus sempervirens, the Mediterranean cypress (also known as Italian cypress, Tuscan cypress, or Persian cypress), a species of cypress native to the eastern Mediterranean region.

Cypress absolute has a green, resinous, ambery odour with a balsamic undertone and a light smoke, tobacco drydown. It is a multifaceted and tenacious fragrance appreciated by natural perfumers, and is traditionally used in perfumery and for its uplifting, energizing properties.
