I love nothing more than discovering a new perfume. To me scents are transformative and they take me to an exact moment in my life.
When I smell the perfumes of my past I can tell you where I was when I wore it, the moment in my life I can pin point. Who and what it reminds me of and that is what is so special about perfume. It makes you feel good, but it also holds memories.
Which brings me to the latest fruity perfumes to land on my doorstep from Clive Christian.
With a background in luxury interiors spanning from the 1970s, Clive Christians pursuit of true luxury took another path when he stumbled upon a small perfume house in Mayfair, London. Upon discovering that this company had once been so noteable that Queen Victoria had granted the use of the image of her crown on the bottles, Clive Christian set to work to restore the perfume house to its former glory.
The Noble Collection
Created in homage to the history and flora of a Queen Anne Garden, Noble VII combines the romance of traditional English gardens with rich and exotic flowers that were sought after by fashionable nobility of the time.
The powerfully fragrant Rock Rose has top notes of citrus, warmed with black pepper and blends with a base of amber, cocoa & patchouli.
The deep and masculine fragrant Rock Rose opens with its top notes of citrus combined with black pepper that is distinctly classic. A powerful fragrance in its own right, this scent is sure to impress for its unique and obvious quality, which it should for its £350 price tag.
The sumptuous scent of cosmos flower blends with bittersweet cocoa, sensual jasmine and fruity plum giving depth & integrity to this modern gourmande.
A beautiful fragrance reminiscent of some of my favourite fragrances on the market, this strong feminine fragrance is sure to stand the test of time. Beautifully classic, it’s the perfect sensual evening scent for the summer months ahead.
Again with a £350 price tag it’s a bit steep, but the quality ingredients and knowledge are plain to see and so I’m sure I’ll be picking up the sample packs for my clutch bag again in the near future.
Until Next Time
