I'm thinking about putting a cypress (Chamaecyparis) onto my office desk which is in an open space, however, I don't want it to disturb my coworkers.
Is an indoor cypress known to produce any notable smell, or emit allergens into the air?

It does have a noticeable scent, but only if you bruise the leaves, usually. Any allergic response via the air is mostly restricted to when the plant flowers, which is unlikely indoors - it's the pollen that can cause a nasal response in sensitised people. Otherwise, some people may experience contact allergy after brushing against it.
