“I was inspired to create an iconic bottle as precious as a crown jewel.”
— Clive Christian
Established in 1872, Clive Christian Perfume is the world's leading independent Perfume House. 1872 was also the year Queen Victoria gave the perfumery permission to use the crown on its bottles, an iconic signature on every bottle ever since. From an early age and like many of you I have always loved wearing perfumes and experimenting with different scents as I truly believe people will remember you from your smell.
This is a brand that I strongly relate to, from it's philosophy to it's aesthetics — they take great pride in what they do. Throughout this year it's been an absolute honour to have been working on a creative partnership with an iconic British Perfume House who like me heavily focuses on creativity and craftsmanship to the highest level. The brand is for sure setting the bar high in perfumery, all Clive Christian perfumes are classified as Parfum as they all have over 20% concentration. No.1 by Clive Christian has officially been recognised as the World’s Most Expensive Perfume as certified by Guinness World Records.
Earlier this year, I was invited by Clive Christian to have a private consultation at their Harrods store located on the sixth floor at Salon De Parfums. It was here where I discovered my favourite Clive Christian scent: Addictive Arts — Jump up and Kiss Me Hedonistic, a woody oriental fragrance with gourmand, fruity and narcotic notes. After selecting my favourite perfume from the entire collection I only then found out that this perfume contains Amber, which is one of my favourite gemstones that is set on the Amber Ring in my jewellery collection as featured within every outfit in this article. I must have a strong sense for Amber!
Throughout the creative partnership I have been discovering the following products: 20 Iconic Masculine, Rock Rose, The Around The World Discovery Set and The Travel Case.
