Cyparissus Soy Wax Candle
Cyparissus features a refined blend of botanical gin and aged woods. This unique fragrance starts with a juniper top note that gives this light-bodied spirit its signature aroma. Red currant adds a hint of fruit that leads to a woody fusion of balsam, oak, cedar, and cypress in the base.

Cyparissus was a handsome youth, whose beauty attracted the attention of the god Apollo. Apollo presented Cyparissus with a magnificent stag as a sign of affection, and this stag became a beloved pet of Cyparissus. One day Cyparissus was partaking in a hunt when he accidentally discharged his bow at his beloved stag, mortally wounding it. Overcome with grief, Cyparissus prayed to Apollo that he might be allowed to let his tears fall forever.
Unable to comfort him, a sympathetic Apollo transformed him into a cypress tree. Today, it can be observed that the sap of the cypress tree runs down its trunk like tears. Many cultures around the world still regard cypress trees as a symbols of mourning.
