Goldfield & Banks’ Blue Cypress is a sophisticated fragrance inspired by the lush rainforest in the north of Australia, Kakadu.
A haze of light incense fuses with the scent of the morning in a deep blue-green forest. Blue Cypress is inspired by the scent of dew evaporating from soft foliage as the cool air blows over a rainbow of towering eucalyptus and cypress trees.
The perfumer created Blue Cypress with the oil of the tree in mind, which has a pine-like, herbal character. The main accords alongside the oil are therefore herbal ones, as well as lavender, geranium and musk which add a classically masculine touch the fragrance.

HOW IT WEARS
Opening with crisp (but not sharp, more misty) bergamot, as Blue Cypress wears, aromatic wafts of cool spice appear. The real hero of the fragrance is of course the cypress, which is fresh, green and dewy. The base of earthy patchouli helps the scent stick closely to the skin for 8-10 hours.
Blue Cypress is the scent of clean forest air, both invigorating and grounding at the same time. It’s almost like a modern take on a barber-shop fragrance, with an Australiana twist. Fresh, cooling and earthy, this is the perfect scent for every day wear.
