Clive Christian Original No.1 Feminine 50ml
An emblem of the extraordinary attention to detail that Clive Christian prides itself on, No.1 Masculine and Feminine are sourced and composed using the rarest, most precious ingredients from around the world. Exemplifying the founding pillars of creativity, craftsmanship and provenance as defined by its elegant gold bottle, the No.1 pair is, simply put, the zenith of fragrance creation. No 1 Feminine is a floral Oriental, resplendent with fruity top notes of Pineapple, Plum, and White Peach that are then cut through with spicier notes of Cardamom and Pimento oil. A heart of Jasmine, Carnation and Rose evoke Aphrodite’s gardens of love and beauty, while its base of Tahitian Vanilla, Cedar and creamy Tonka Bean offer a sophisticated and tantalising depth. No 1 Masculine is a woody Oriental; understated yet distinctive. Lush top notes of Bergamot, Lime, Sicilian Mandarin and Pink Grapefruit are spiced up with the tang of Cardamom and Nutmeg, Pimento oil, Thyme and Artemisia oil. At its heart we find Rose, Jasmine and Lily of the Valley, while Heliotrope adds a rare, distinctive note. At the base is rare 50-year-old Indian Sandalwood as well as powdery Musk and Vetiver, the combination of which provides sublime depth for a perfume that speaks to an accomplished and confident individual.
After acquiring the Crown Perfumery Company in 1999, a prestigious perfume house established in 1872, Clive Christian OBE launched the Original Collection in the same year. The first collection to be released, it laid the foundation for exquisite fragrances crafted from extraordinary ingredients all around the world, and would go on to epitomise the perfume house’s devotion to the provenance of these precious materials. The resultof this dedication makes each Clive Christian perfume quite unlike any other; brimming with quality, depth and complexity, they are true moments of luxury. Fragrance is a truly personal entity, capable of evoking memories, stirring sentiments and forging deeply personal attachments. Clive Christian Perfume understands this complex relationship and has created the Original Collection in ode to this. Comprising three individual pairings, No.1, 1872 and X, the perfumes challenge the ordinary in their quest for complexity and creativity, while maintaining distinct individual personalities. Referencing the Crown Perfumery’s illustrious heritage, the collections are simultaneously in tune with modern day tastes
