Clive Christian: undeniably well spent money
“All good things are wild and free”, they say. Well, not quite. An exception to that is Clive Christian’s perfume collection, a simple yet powerful, expensive yet worthy compilation of the best and the rarest substances of the world.
Egyptian Jasmine, Tahitian Vanilla, Rose de Mai all gather to create sexy fragrances, very successful in fulfilling the deepest desires of sophisticated women (and men!) by endowing them with a mysterious aura. From which continent, from which faraway country does that scent come from?
In 1999, Clive Christian’s personnel took over one of the most traditional and well-known British Perfume Houses – The Crown Perfumery –, whose exquisite creations were acknowledge even by Queen Victoria of England in the year of 1872. A new century has come and gone, but the quality of the House remains the same today. Mainly thanks, of course, to Clive Christian’s brilliantness: no other brand is so effective in extracting the essence of such precious natural elements and turning it into practically pure fragrances for everyday use.
That kind of product does not come easy – obviously. One should not wonder why the price of Clive Christian’s No. 1 Perfume is among the Guinness World Records. And I assure you it is not because of its cheapness. Its bottle is inspired in the British royalty of the 19th century and is also a reminder of those often appearing in the images of the famous Titanic. Two versions, two sets of one-of-a-kind substances: while women are presented with a mixture of Indian Jasmine, Tahitian Vanilla and Persian Rose, men will get a scent made of ancient Indian Sandalwood and Arabian Jasmine Sambac.
Its exclusive character will feel even more real to those who acquire one of the 250 bottles of the Imperial Jubilee No. 1. Not only does it own the title of “the world’s most expensive perfume”, which is a sign of its perfectly perfect perfection, but it is also capable of turning any woman into a queen. A tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, for she has been responsible for a golden era in England while taking the British throne for the last sixty years. Golden is also the bottle, kindly complemented with a red velvet stripe and an image of Queen Victoria’s crown, as well as the scent itself, an almost pure one. An inevitably rich, enduring and fascinating fragrance, thanks to which any woman can feel like a queen. I would say it is also an appropriate gift to make any man feel like her king.
If you have also come to the conclusion that Clive Christian’s invention is worth every cent, there are several ways to purchase it online. If you are a resident of the UK, there is Fortnum & Mason. For USA citizens, there are three options: Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. The Urban Retreat at Harrods is otherwise the answer, due to its international delivery ability (except when it comes to Italy).
