Luxury niche line Clive Christian has launched Private Collection, with 10 new fragrances: five for men and five for women, spelling out the name Clive.
A striking collection of 10 characterful perfumes of incomparable complexity, which celebrate extraordinary lifetime moments and memories via an exciting and sublime olfactory discovery of the senses
C ~ "A collection that evokes the wild and invigorating beauty of the Scottish landscape where Clive was born, these perfumes recall its majesty and elemental beauty. While C Green Floral draws on the creaminess of jasmine absolute and rose, C Woody Leather dabbles in green leaves, tobacco and oak moss."
L ~ "This collection brings to life Clive's experiences as a young designer arriving in the bustling metropolis of London, and discovering the concept of luxury craftsmanship that would come to shape his whole life. An energetic fragrance, L Floral Chypre sparkles with pink pepper and peach, while L Woody Oriental is striking with bergamot, geranium and cedarwood."
I ~ "Complex and evocative, this pair delves into Clive's work as the charismatic doyen of luxury interiors. While an elaborate, joyful fusion of mandarin, jasmine and patchouli characterises both I Woody Floral and Clive's work; I Amber Oriental meanwhile fuses earthy juniper berry, havana and fir balsam to conjure the scent of his master workshop."
V ~ "The V collection is an exotic and fragrant ode to Clive Christian's eldest daughter and her love for perfume. Bergamot, black pepper and frankincense allow V Fruity Floral to reflect her elegance and grace, while V Amber Fougere captures the complexity and woody resinous notes with the uplifting scent of cassis."
E ~ "The E collection was inspired by the opulent interior of Buckingham Palace as glimpsed by Clive when he was inducted into the honours list; it also captures his immense sense of pride on the occasion. While E Green Fougere is made luminous with fresh notes of rose, lavender and narcissus, E Gourmande Oriental has a resinous amber base and uses of rum, labdanum and maple."
7 of the 10 Clive Christian Private Collection fragrances can be found now at Selfridge's in the UK, £275 each for 50 ml.
