Dry Gin and Cypress Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Set the scene with Dry Gin and Cypress, a refined blend of botanical gin and aged woods. This unique fragrance oil 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. 

Create candles and wax melts 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.

Blends well with: Cedarwood Blanc, Alpine Balsam, Pomegranate Bitters

Alternative branding ideas: Speakeasy, Gin Martini, Shaken Not Stirred, Botanical Gin and Juniper, Cedar and Cypress

Suggested colors: Green

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.

My favorite CS scent

This is my current favorite Candle Science scent. I can't get enough of it. Like a Christmas Tree scent but without all the "Christmas" blended in - just straight, clean juniper. It's fresh and lovely.

Unique, wonderul

I love this scent and sell it year round. It is such a unique evergreen scent. Great hot/cold throws. (464 wax)

Amazing Holiday Scent!

Loved this and chose this as the scent for our first ever holiday candle in our line and it ended up selling out! I received a ton of positive reviews from customers about this scent! The HT was decent at 10% in coconut wax but upping it to 11% in coconut wax with a small of amount of Vybar added made the HT outstanding! The CT was great even at 10% in coconut wax.

Vanished in CP soap

I had very high hopes for this FO...used in cold process soap it virtually disappeared. Not a bad scent out of the bottle, faint and soft compared to other scents by CandleScience (they tend to be strong which I appreciate). But this was was meh out of the bottle. I used half of my bottle and ended up just throwing it away and using real Cypress essential oil instead.
I'm a loyal customer to this company, so next year I'll be trying all new FOs to introduce new lines! It's exciting seeing the new ones come out, keep it up. We appreciate the choices!

I use this scent for my Christmas collection. And I REALLY love it!! It smells like a walk in the rich wet woods. Masculine and fresh without being typically spicy or sweet.

Blended with pomegranate- amazing!

I love this scent! It’s great by itself, but I wanted it to appeal to both men and women and honestly the pomegranate was the trick! Amazing masculine scent by itself as well!

I got this because my husband loves gin - and surprise I LOVE it as well

I was so surprised when I got this and smelled it - it was supposed to just be a treat batch of soap for my husband. But I am now in love with it.

Not what I expected

I hardly ever buy a fragrance without checking reviews. There was a lot of positive reviews about this scent but I truly do not like it. However before I wrote it off I let my husband smell it and he said the same thing as me it smells like pine cleaner. I tried to wait and smell it later just to make sure I was not rushing to judgement and I smelled it a day later and still smells lile cleaner and it gave me a headache. I will not be using this scent in either my candles or body products. HARD HARD HARD PASS FOR ME...

Absolutely Love It!!!!

We have made the Basic Body Bar in 3 sizes 4.0, 3.5 and 2.2 ounces. We've also made an Artisan Bar and are considering updating the name to "Shaken Not Stirred" ode to James Bond of course! This scent is a winner for men.
