CILVE CHRISTIAN LONDON '' L ''
Clive Christian - L Private Collection for MenAs his loyal fans will have noticed, it’s not every day that Clive Christian launches a new perfume. Not for him the endless stream of the “new”, the “fashionable” and the “latest”. He waits until he finds something that he completely loves, a perfume that captures something of his spirit, that is truly beautiful and that, as always, is made up of only the most precious of materials in their purest form :
“L” for Men – a Spicy perfume with a glorious celebration of precious woods. It takes the wonderful smokey-green aroma of Vetiver and combines it with Cedar Atlas and Fir Balsam to add rich sweetness, with some Musk for sensuality and spices to bring the whole base notes alive and enhance the beauty of the Vetiver - the oil of tranquillity. At the top of the traditional pyramid, Grapefruit leads the way with a bright citrus note, which also livens up the natural green-citrus notes, whilst tones of Oud, Rose and Petitgrain Mandarinier round out the whole and give it a nice modern, distinctive edge. During the Roman Empire, the rose was a symbol of power and was used to honour returning armies and later to perfume sophisticated celebrations.
