Clive Christian X Masculine 50ml
A name that conjures up the essence of perfume in its truest and most alluring form, X is a perfume that captivates all those whose path it permeates. Housed in its unmistakable black bottle with discreet gold labelling, X is a secret you don’t want to share and is an alluring nod to the powerful emotions it is capable of invoking. At the heart of X Feminine, a fruity Chypre, lies the essence of two of the world’s most powerfully aphrodisiac powers, the Karo Karounde plant from West Africa and the rare and mystical Egyptian Jasmine, which is grown on the banks of the Nile. While it is the heart that gives it its great seductive pull, the top notes of Bergamot, Peach, Rhubarb and Pineapple and the base notes of Cedarwood and Kashmir Musk add a roundedness that is utterly intoxicating.A spicy, woody Chypre with heady top notes of Cardamom, Pink Pepper and Ginger, X Masculine, embodies a sense of mysticism. At its heart are Hedione, Sambac Oil (both derived from Jasmine), and sacred Orris. Deep in the base lie Vetiver oil, Cinnamon and Tree Moss, which combine to give the perfume its deeply sensory edge.
