I was a bit skeptical about buying this FO so I chose it as my free sample with my purchase. Oh boy, it smells wonderful to me! I'm not quite sure what gin and cypress smell like by themselves; however, together, they make a lovely combination. I plan to buy a bigger bottle for the holidays. I haven't used in CP or candles as yet so I can't speak to this FO's performance. I think it would be a great addition to men's line.

Set the scene with Dry Gin and Cypress, a refined blend of botanical gin and aged woods. A juniper top note 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.
Create candles, wax melts, and reed diffusers that conjure images of a wood-paneled speakeasy and its elegant, murmuring clientele. Dry Gin and Cypress would be an enticing fragrance for a line of men’s body care products, or a fresh, woodsy addition to any soap collection.
This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including cedarwood, patchouli, cypress, geranium, and mint.
Alternative branding ideas: Speakeasy, Gin Martini, Shaken Not Stirred, Botanical Gin + Juniper, Cedar + Cypress

We experienced slight acceleration but no separation. We were able to continuously stick blend for about a minute and the batter stayed at a light trace. As we poured into the mold, the batter started to thicken slightly. Be prepared to work quickly, but the batter should stay workable to allow for various design options. After 24 hours we observed some fragrance had leached to the surface of the soap loaf, which we blotted away before unmolding. The block of soap loaf had a pinkish brown color, but when we cut individual bars the center remained a pale yellow color. The soap only reached a partial gel and the scent was very strong and true to the out of bottle character of the fragrance. After 30 days the soap discolored purplish-brown color and the scent was strong and the cypress notes were more balanced.
I LOVED this oil when I first opened it and immediately used it in a batch of wax melts, but today those melts and the oil itself both smell like public bathroom disinfectant. Seems to have turned overnight. Extremely disappointing.
I wrote a review a couple of days ago saying that I wasn't sure if this Fragrance Discolors... It does. Oh boy. Good scent, but maybe best left to darker palettes in soap.
Doesn't sell to discolor, (yet), but I think it accelerates trace. I just made soap with it less than an hour ago, and it's all ready almost ready to pop out of my six bar, silicon molds. And my soap seemed to hear up really hot for such a small soap. Might be best in a slow moving recipe; I'm not sure.
This smells AMAZING! im obsessed! Thank you pls never discontinued this fragance!
Extremely similar to Cypress and Bayberry. It's a great scent on it's own. Very sophisticated. Would be a great blender.
A sniff of the bottle and you catch all the notes, but when I used this in a diffuser there was no scent of gin at all. The cypress was strong and pleasant, but singular.
I love this fragrance, it’s definitely unique. I will be ordering more ASAP! Sexy smells!!!
Another lovely earthy masculine to add to my collection. I can see myself blending this with other FO's and using it a lot!
This is not just another piney scent...it definitely has a note of masculinity to it that I LOVE. OOB it’s good, but on a tester strip, and blended with other masculine scents, like leather, it’s a WOW.
I’m not one to write bad reviews but my god this is awful to my nose. I gag every time I smell it. I can definitely smell the cypress/pine notes and don’t mind those so much so I’m assuming it’s the gin I don’t care for. It’s just not for me.
