Reimagining key perfumes from the Clive Christian Perfume archives, starting with Crab Apple Blossom

13 Jul 2021

A new collection bought to life to celebrate a unique and prestigious perfume history spanning nearly two hundred years. Celebrating Clive Christian Perfumes foundations in the Crown Perfumery Company and telling a scented story that echoes throughout the eras, the new Crown Collection from Clive Christian Perfume will bring to life archive and historic scents, reimagined for the modern day perfume connoisseur.

Searching through the Crown Perfumery Company archives Clive Christian Perfume has researched some of the most infamous scents from this revolutionary British perfume house; loved by the aristocracy, politicians, artists and actors of the Victorian era and beyond. Select perfumes will be reimagined, taking inspiration from a unique heritage whilst remaining true to the Clive Christian traditions of concentration, complexity and a dedication to using the finest ingredients.

A striking red jewel has been created for a regal and British finish reflecting the perfume houses origins. The presentation case showcases the unique history, with an archive image hidden for discovery beneath each bottle. The symbol for this new collection is none other than the delicate motif of the Crown Perfumery Company, a symbol guarded by the perfume house as a sign of excellence and perfume quality. As with all Clive Christian perfumes each bottle is topped with our signature crown stopper, a sign of perfume prestige since 1872.

Crab Apple Blossom - Arguably one of the most famous of Crown Perfumery products this delicate perfume was first created in 1886. Originally inspired by the crab apple tree that grew out-side the Crown Perfumery’s Founder house in Kensington The Crown Perfumery Company was the first brand to capture this unique ingredients illusive scent. Today Crab Apple Blossom contains this signature spring flower as a top note combined with exotic marine bergamot with a heart of green rhubarb and fresh mojito fusion enhanced by creamy sandalwood and aquatically aromatic driftwood in the base for a fresh, energising citrusy yet soft scent that trails on the skin like blossoming branches in the spring sunshine.
