Clive Christian is the luxury perfume house which will always reign supreme — quite literally...

As the only perfume house to have been uniquely granted the right to use crown-shaped bottle stoppers by Queen Victoria in the shape of her own distinctive royal headpiece, Clive Christian know a thing or two about standing apart from the crowd.

So this Christmas, why not give yourself, or someone you love a gift fit for a king or queen – and get to know a bit more about the perfumer with royal lineage.

Staying power...

Their collection of perfumes combine the finest luxury ingredients from around the world, to create scents which are as distinctive as their wearer and, crucially, which last for up to 10 hours on the skin without losing their power.

This is thanks to the high concentration of perfume in every bottle — for reference, an average eau de parfum contains 15%, whilst a Clive Christian perfume contains 20-25%. Thanks to this, a Clive Christian bottle is the perfect choice if you’re looking to buy a gift this Christmas which truly keeps on giving.

The perfect gift…

Perfume might be the most quintessential of all romantic gifts, not least because of its power to recall our most beautiful memories. And, much like the memories they evoke, Clive Christian perfumes are made up of only the most precious and rare ingredients that can be found across the world.

The longevity of both this historic fragrance house, and the scents it creates, make them the perfect declaration of commitment to those you love most. Each perfume contains the most concentrated form of fragrance oil — giving them incomparable body, depth & longevity.

For him or her...

Fragrances can be categorised into masculine and feminine scents, and Clive Christian are now offering the Original Collection gift set, providing both as a pair of perfectly complementary perfumes. In the house’s own words, “this set exemplifies the ultimate perfumed love affair — exquisite apart, extraordinary together”.

And, if you’re looking to buy for yourself this season, our favourite from this perfumer’s wardrobe is the C Woody Leather perfume, which was inspired by the rugged coastal landscapes Clive grew up amongst in Scotland — designed to evoke brooding skies and the still, dark waters of the lochs.

Perfect for adding a touch of Gothic romance to these dark, wintry days.
