This ancient fragrance denotes the nutty and coniferous aroma of the symbolic cypress tree.
In the Christian tradition, the cypress tree is a symbol of death, life, and resurrection, and signifies the heavens calling. With its column-like shape that reaches toward the heavens, the Cypress has a deep-rooted relationship with the heavenly realm and divine light. The evergreen leaves have become a symbol of resurrection and new life.
