Italian Cypress was launched in 2008 and has since been discontinued. It is an aromatic chypre that features notes of cypress, mandarin, Calabrian bergamot, basil, mint, Icelandic moss and Indonesian patchouli.
From a review by Now Smell This:
Italian Cypress begins with dark mandarin and a hint of bitter mint and galbanum; the clove I detect seems ‘dry’ and mingles with a labdanum and old-fashioned moss accord. The heart of Italian Cypress is, you guessed it, wood: rich, semi-charred, smoky and almost eternal (this fragrance lasts on my skin an entire day). Italian Cypress wears down to a dark wood aroma tinged with musk. There is a vintage vibe to Italian Cypress, but the fragrance “feels” older than the 1970s era mentioned in Tom Ford ad copy. Italian Cypress smells “antique” in the best possible way (it’s not sleek, slick, or filled with artificial smelling notes); it’s serious without being ponderous, it’s “elemental” without being dull.
