A person’s fragrance can be a deeply personal thing. It’s a reflection of your style, mood and importantly your sense of self. A powerful tool used to convey who we are to the world, nobody ever just ‘wears’ a perfume. The fragrances you choose compliment the many facets of your personality and the right scent can make you feel complete. This is something British luxury perfume company Clive Christian deeply understand and have transformed this knowledge into several beautiful collections. Better yet, if you struggle to stick to just one perfume like me, or you’re on the hunt for the perfect present, Clive Christian has a perfume gift set for her that will satisfy all your fragrance needs.
Clive Christian Perfumes*
What’s particularly magical about Clive Christian perfumes is the use of rare high quality ingredients. Every fragrance uses naturally derived elements sourced from all over the world. Clive Christian also uses advanced headspace technology to create a sense of luxuriousness that transforms the expected into the extraordinary.
I hate to feel constricted when it comes to perfumes. Whether it’s the time of day, particular occasion or a change in season, I love to seek out new scents. Now that we’re finally starting to see the subtle signs of Spring (just), it’s the perfect opportunity to find new fragrances for this time of year. Spring is about freshness, light and whimsy and I want a fragrance that allows me to embody all these characteristics. The unique craftsmanship of each Clive Christian fragrance is perfect for this, as you can wear them in a way that is entirely personal.
Noble VIII Collection
The concept that fragrances are interlinked with every aspect of your personality is perfectly captured in the Noble Collection. This selection of perfumes epitomises the architectural and artistic moments of British history and the name itself evokes images of royalty and grandeur. I love to wear them with my gorgeous floral dress from Lindy Bop. Each Noble Collection is created in pairs, consisting of a masculine and feminine counterpart that encourages fragrance combining without limitations.
The Noble VIII perfume duo is comprised of the robust fragrance Immortelle and the more delicate notes of Magnolia. Both perfumes give a nod to the Rococo period with emphasis on the lavishly fanciful attitude associated with that era. Immortelle invites you in with top notes of fresh bergamot which lead to the dark, spicy warmth of the everlasting Immortelle flower. Finished off with the calming woody scent of papyrus, this scent is almost smoky but still beautifully light.
With notes of fruity cassis and earthy oak moss, Magnolia is the perfect accompaniment to the velvety notes of Immortelle. The sweet perfumed cream coloured petals of the Magnolia flower are what give this perfume its femininity. Gorgeously sensual, it’s heady scent is very reminiscent of the romanticism of the Rococo style.
For me it’s very refreshing to layer these scents throughout the day. A morning with Magnolia followed by an evening addition of Immortelle, both are unique in their own way and together utterly sublime. A welcome change from the overly saccharine fragrances found at this time of year, Clive Christian perfumes add the perfect dose of Spring sophistication.
