The new Crown Collection brings to life historic scents, reimagined for the modern day perfume connoisseur. Using the Crown Perfumery Company archives, Clive Christian Perfume has researched some of the most infamous fragrances from this revolutionary British perfume house, all loved by the aristocracy, politicians, artists and actors of the Victorian era and beyond. They are brought back to life whilst still remaining true to the Clive Christian traditions of concentration, complexity and dedication to using the finest ingredients. Arguably one of the most famous of the Crown Perfumery Company’s products, this delicate perfume was first created in 1886 and by 1894 over half a million bottles were being sold annually. The original scent was inspired by the blossoming crab apple tree that grew outside the Crown Perfumery Company founder’s home in Kensington, and he was the first perfumer to capture this unique ingredient’s elusive scent. Today, the new Crab Apple Blossom contains this signature spring flower in the top notes, used for the very first time in a Clive Christian fragrance. The exquisite ingredient, which provides a mesmerising smell like a delicate kiss of spring, is combined with sparkling marine bergamot, a reviving take on the bitter orange tree with just a hint of salty aquatic -a very rare ingredient in the world of perfumery. Together with bitter yuzu and cedarwood fusion, these delicate top notes provide an energizing and zesty opening for a burst of freshness. A fruity floral character is then revealed in the vibrant and invigorating heart, with modern notes of sharp green rhubarb and a fresh mojito fusion accompanied by delicate neroli and powerful floral notes of osmanthus. A sophisticated but powerful base is enhanced by creamy sandalwood, a sumptuous ingredient used in many of the Clive Christian perfumes. As part of our dedication to using the finest ingredients in the world, Clive Christian only uses 50-year-old aged sandalwood. Enriched by salty and aromatic driftwood, the base of Crab Apple Blossom forms a fresh, energising citrusy yet soft scent. Combined with musk, amber and a kashmirwood fusion, this olfactory composition will bring out the oceanic wood, making this Citrus-Aquatic parfum reminiscent of rolling sea waves.
