Maybe Cupressus torulosa http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/79407/ which is very similar to the Kashmir Cypress except for the weeping habit.

Cupressus glabra

C. torulosa has more drooping, non-glaucous foliage and different shape cones.

Looks rather more like Cupressus Arizona to my untrained eye.

I think there's a bit of confusion on the name. Cupressus glabra seems to be a synonym of Cupressus arizonica var. glabra according to the plantlist: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2748665 . I also think some of the names in PlantFiles need to amended. I agree with Resin and RosinaBloom.

The plantlist is out of date there, recent genetic analysis has shown that Cupressus glabra is less closely related to C. arizonica than first thought, so it is better treated as a species in its own right, not a variety.

C. arizonica differs in less glaucous foliage, subtle differences in cone shape, and 'stringy' textured bark (smooth / scaly in C. glabra).

This tree is Cupressus Arizona too? It's so good smell, my dog always stopped at this tree every time we walked pass. Pic taken in Castle Hill Sydney. Thank.

Just to clarify, yours is also Smooth Arizona Cypress (Cupressus glabra), not Rough-barked Arizona Cypress (Cupressus arizonica). Should've mentioned that before!
