The Cypress tree is an evergreen tree from the Cupressaceae family: a slender conifer, it can reach 40 meters in height. Its name is derived from the Greek mythology in which Cyparisse, Telephus’ son, was turned into a cypress by Apollo. Recognisable to its small triangular scale-like leaves and its round-shaped wooden fruits, the cypress grows in warm Northern temperate regions (China, Vietnam, Asia Minor, North and South America). The epitome of Mediterranean landscapes, the cypress defines the Tuscan landscape: more, cypress wood was historically used to manufacture Italian harpsichords. Woody, fresh and aromatic, the cypress scent evokes the strength and nobility of its silhouette.
A limited edition for Christmas, the Cypress scented candle comes in a green glass, and matching cypress-green and gold box.
