Italian Cypress fragrance notes

Reviews of Italian Cypress

Imagine walking up to a grand mansion in rural Italy.the long,unpaved driveway is lined with formidable towers of green trees.rising up every few feet or so,the trees act as sentinels of the mansion.with the crunch of gravel beneath your feet,you smell the tree's mild scent of cypress.

It scent has a citrus and herbal green out,but as soon few minutes go it's turning into a deeper fragrance are presenting woody notes,then linger into the pleasantly soapy dry down.creates with skin chemistry some crazy natural's synthetic notes to my's for the masculine man,no doubt, not at all unisex.the dry down is lovely.a woody,green and earthy aromatic scent.

The fragrance is simply great and full of body,the expression of the alpha male in every drop of the reminds me of YSL Jazz&Ralph Lauren Polo.This is essentially how male fragrances smelled in the classic,powerful but not necessary offensive.the scent is not for the sport,or acqua scent dudes,this is the real deal.manhood in a bottle. definitely for the fall season. decent sillage,projection and longevity.

The younger brother of the venerable Polo by Ralph Lauren. That one was a green/ fresh/ piney/ collegiate all-American preppy. This new Tom Ford was raised in the Continent in the manner of Roman "la dolce vita." Suave, urbane, and endowed with a considerable dose of "sprezzatura" as only the Italians have. They are kin, but not alike.
A perfectly balanced and invigorating mix of citrus and basil opens this wonderful juice, then quickly segues into the dominant green and refreshing cypress note that lingers all the way to the end. Mint colors the pine a little, then the drydown becomes woody and a little powdery.

This is a fresh/ cypress green/ aromatic and woody fragrance that smells wonderful!
By far one of the better Tom Fords around. It's a shame it got discontinued. Scour the internet to get one, if you can.

Tenacious and clingy. With moderate sillage. This is one beautiful Italian.

Highly recommended!

Cypress. Aromatic. Minty. Spicy. Dry, with just a hint of something sweet, probably from the citrus in the background, it doesn't bug me. This is a really well blended mature feeling fragrance. It does evoke my scent memory of cypress trees next to my childhood home. It has a bit of incensy woody notes that smell good to me, but could irritate the more fragile noses out there. It is reminicint of Z14 and Cosmair Polo. If you like those it is a pretty good bet you'll like this as well. Like an updated version of those. Thumbs up from me.

Wore it again, still feels like Polo. Just add a bit of incense or cypress, or something. Its good. Vintagy.

Halston Z-14 on hormones. I love the original Z-14, how could I not love this second coming, projection is nuclear and lasts all day long, a shame it got discontinued but you can get Halston Z-14 vintage after you run out of it

Probably my 3rd favorite Private blend after Tuscan Leather and Oud Wood.

This is invigorating, fresh, green and clean! The opening reminds me of a greener and more refined Bois Du Portugal by Creed.

I really truly adore this fragrance and glad i got to purchase it at a reasonable price.

Id love to say it will always be in my collection but that really depends on its availability and price if it's to be kept vaulted.

To me a great scent but not worth the massive amounts most places are asking. I would happily stick to Bois Du Portugal for less.

If the price wasn't a factor it would score higher!

Update: I have secured a second bottle for a decent price, they will be used on special occasions only to last as long as possible 😁😁😁

This should never have been discontinued. Citrus with basil and lots of cypresses, a very clean woodsy scent with slight powder and mint in the backdrop. The definition of a fougere through and through, almost intensely strong and straightforward from first application. This is a scent that is trying to say something sensual when being let out of the bottle, a dark green force of sophistication. Projection is moderate and longevity is about 6 hours: it's a stylized workplace scent. Grey Vetiver is for the straightforward, run of the mill office worker: Italian Cypress is for the assertive male in management who has aspirations of ownership.

Drydown brings out the powder and herbal scent, becoming much more relaxed as it slowly dies down to a skin scent. Too expensive, like everything Tom Ford, but this is the private line scent you want for the workplace.
