Royal Crown is a new-ish Italian niche line founded by Antonio Martino. They debut with seven fragrances: Musk Ubar, Rain, Tabac Royal, Celebration, Poudre de Fleurs, Tenebra and Noor.
Musk Ubar ~ for men. "Musk Ubar by Royal is a fragrance verging on the divine; noble and wild, with a bewitching power. Angelica, wormwood and geranium provide a sensational and spicy start. The triumvirate of rose, jasmine and galbanum in the heart exude a beguiling sensuality that heightens its erotic character upon a bed of musk and ambergris. A vibrant homage to the daring spirit of a great captain or adventurer..."
Rain ~ for men. "Rain by Royal Crown is a contemporary, yet also classic and elegant fragrance for men that evokes images of fresh spring rain. Rain preludes with crisp, luminous citric notes of tangerine leaves, bergamot and neroli that lead to a heart of jasmine, rose and reseda. A base of sandalwood provides a woody undertone complemented by heliotrope, vetiver and ambergris. Rain belongs to an adventurer, looking for unknown lands, who loves large open spaces and likes to explore the hidden spirit of faraway places."
Tabac Royal ~ for men. "Royal Crown presents us with a majestic tobacco: Tabac Royal. A rich, complex and elegant fragrance created for charismatic men looking for sensuous and refined evening fragrances. Tabac Royal starts with a spicy firework of cinnamon, lemon and pink pepper. The fragrance’s namesake declares its strong presence in the heart accompanied by heliotrope and notes of vanilla. Masculine sandalwood, tobacco and a tart patchouli round off this composition."
Celebration ~ unisex. "Royal Crown celebrates Italy’s 150th anniversary with an exciting unisex fragrance! Only the best Mediterranean ingredients have been encased in an elegant crystal flacon to mark this national celebration. This remarkable fragrance opens with citrus fruits that meet a sunny blend of spearmint, tangerine and bergamot, which is flanked by lilies and iris notes..."
Poudre de Fleurs ~ for women. "Sophisticated and assertively feminine, Poudre de Fleurs perfectly embodies the glamour and refinement of a precious jewel. After well-tempered fresh notes of neroli, tangerine and lime leaves, we arrive at a floral heart of rose, jasmine and gardenia, which in turn is backed by a savvy base composed of vanilla, patchouly and sandalwood. This opulent floral bouquet is the incarnation of absolute sensuality..."
Tenebra ~ for women. "Tenebra by Royal Crown can truly be described as the incarnation of seduction in its purest form. A fresh trio of neroli, bergamot and heliotrope leads Tenebra directly to the carnal desires of the heart. What else other than tuberose could have its finger in the pie here and rightly so! Its lustful nature is reinforced by vanilla, iris and a passionate warm labdanum. Bulgarian rose, narcissus and also violets belong to the beguiling floral notes which provide, in conjunction with wood, tobacco, ambergris and honey the erotic allure of a daring haute couture dress..."
Noor ~ for women. "Noor by Royal Crown sees itself as a profound exploration into the feminine universe. The result is a sophisticated, oriental fragrance for a woman of character, untamed and tremendously attractive. In the top notes, coriander, ylang-ylang and elemi already divulge the complexity of the fragrance. A mysterious heart of opoponax, patchouly and jasmine blend together and rest upon a smoky- incense base of benzoin agarwood, myrrh and vetiver that creates the grand finale..."
