Man, I had high hopes for this to possibly layer with, but this is my 2nd big disappointment with Demeter and counting (more on the way). A dose of Demeter Cypress is like falling into a cypress tree, battered, cut, and bruised from its limbs and needles, leaving you surrounded in a toilet bowl cleanser overdose of doom.
Don't even think you'll want to wear this or even spray it in your bathroom. It has nothing resembling the finesse that a personal fragrance aspires to be.
This scent is “the distillation of the leaves, twigs and cones of the cypress tree” according to the Demeter site.
This is quite a scent! It is very coniferous, very green, very medicinal and powerful. I can’t see it having a wide appeal. I like pine-y and medicinal scents, so I can appreciate its quirky and simple focus. The opening is quite lively and fresh. The drydown is much like lineament, with a hint of Granny Smith apple skin!
