PERFUME COMPLEXITY & CONCENTRATION

All Clive Christian perfumes are incredibly complex. The quality and quantity of raw materials mainly feature a very high level of natural extracts, oils and absolutes, and our perfumes hold between 100 and 300 ingredients.

The amount of ingredients in a perfume affects the depth and character, meaning that Clive Christian perfumes always make a statement. The more ingredients, the more complex the journey of the fragrance is. All Clive Christian perfumes contain between 20% – 25% perfume, except from our Absolutes which are 100% perfume oil.

Compared to other concentrations of perfume such as Eau de toilette at 8% or Eau de Parfum at 15%, this makes Clive Christian perfume far superior in terms of quality and allows the wearer to experience delightful different notes throughout the 8 hour lifespan of a Clive Christian perfume.

These concentrated ingredients mean that the perfume is constantly evolving over the course of the day and new notes are constantly coming to life which makes wearing Clive Christian perfumes a sensorial experience that can last up to between 12 to 24 hours.

Crafting natural ingredients into exquisite perfumes, this comprehensive process often expands to over18 months in the making, with over 7 different extraction methods and more than 150 unique ingredients for each perfume.

THE CREATION OF NEW 1872 MANDARIN & X NEROLI

For our new limited edition perfumes, we wanted to bring to life two new refreshing, uplifting and mesmerising scents inspired by two of our most iconic perfumes 1872 & X.

We wanted the fragrances to capture the energy of new beginnings, in celebration of the love story that founded our brand.

This led to a fragrant tribute of the Orange Blossom, a delicate blossoming flower that was symbolic to the love between Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, but also a symbol of pure love and fertility all over the world.

The fragrances were developed from the originals by the perfumers exploring key, or complimentary raw materials to then become the main focus of the scents: neroli in X and mandarin in 1872.1872 MANDARINMandarin and green accords meet with aromatic juniperberry delve into sweet violet and a unique citrus fusionVIEW DETAILS

1872 MANDARIN

Compared to the original 1872, the perfumer behind the new 1872 Mandarin boosted the perfume with citrus and aromatic facets adding Mandarin, Grapefruit, Juniper Berries, Violet, Jasmin and Lime and the exclusive base ingredient of Citrus Fusion, to capture the invigorating, long-lasting impression of fresh and sweet citrus scent.

A total of 149 ingredients have been used in their purest form, to craft this refreshing Citrusy Musk perfume.

Mandarin is an evergreen tree with glossy leaves, fragrant flowers and round orange to yellow fruits. Originated from South Asia and now extensively cultivated in the Mediterranean, the perfumers have sourced exotic Mandarin oil from Italy, obtained by cold expression of the fruit peel.

To beautifully contrast the citrusy top of the scent, the perfumers added precious Jasmin for heady white floral and creamy tones. Also known as “the King of Flowers”, Jasmine oil is an essential oil derived from the small white flowers of the jasmine plant, where only the most precious responsible and sustainable sourced Jasmine from Egypt is used in Clive Christian perfumes.

The oil is extracted by solvent extraction, where the delicate jasmine petals are mixed with a solvent that draws out the aromatic compound. It takes around 8000 carefully hand – picked blossoms to produce about 1 ml of Jasmine Absolute. To ensure the most exquisite quality, the flowers are hand-picked before dawn from July to November and processed immediately to fully preserve their scent.

A unique Aromafusion has been used to craft the base, which is an exclusive range of ingredients, only available to the perfumers behind the Clive Christian perfumes.

The unique materials in the Aromafusion allows us to create the world’s finest perfumes, a perfumery process that cannot be replicated, making each and every Clive Christian perfume unique and outstanding.

In the complex molecular distillation process, high quality raw materials are combined to create completely new captive ingredients. A heady citrus fusion forms the base of 1872 Mandarin, an impressive combination consisting of notes of Grapefruit & Vetiver for unparalleled longevity from a citrus note, a note which would normally dissipate in just a few hours.

X NEROLI

The iconic X perfume from Clive Christian’s Original Collection has been renewed as a fresh and exhilarating floral chypre combining notes of green florals to musky sweet depths in perfect balance throughout its 192 ingredients.

With a 20% concentration, this perfume explores the most rare and exotic range of ingredients that a true perfume connoisseur could imagine.

Floral and fresh neroli oil is sourced from the Italian bitter orange tree. The white floral of the citrusy fruit is harvested between March and April, carefully hand – picked and processed immediately.

The oil is obtained by steam distillation of the flowers. Diffusing radiance and delicacy with fresh citrus – cologne tones and bitter green shades, Neroli provides unending opportunities in the perfumer’s palette.

In the heart of the scent, the white floral of Tuberose has been used, providing balsamic, spicy and nutty facets to the scent. Tuberose is extensively grown in southern India and is harvested throughout the year, with its main season being between October and November.

Hand-picked early in the morning and processed immediately, the Tuberose oil is extracted by using organic solvents. A sweet, velvety, complex floral ingredient, forming a subtle, delicate heart.

For a sensual, creamy base, the unique Aromafusion has been used for X Neroli as well, capturing an impressive fragrant memory of Musk and Cashmere in the unique Kashmir Fusion.

A spicy – musk, perfectly balanced with a sensual accord of precious wood, oudh and crystal amber for a long – lasting and oriental depth.

The quality and magic of perfume is built on the strength of its ingredients, and Clive Christian is proud to use a broad range of the finest ingredients in the world of perfumery.

Our dedication and love of scent runs into an obsession and at Clive Christian Perfume we live that obsession through every one of our perfumes.
