Clive Christian Crab Apple Blossom - fragrance details
Crab Apple Blossom THE CROWN COLLECTION
Arguably one of the most famous of the Crown Perfumery Company's products this delicate perfume was first created in 1886. The original scent was inspired by the blossoming crab apple tree that grew outside the Crown Perfumery Company founder's home in Kensington, London and he was the first perfumer to capture this unique ingredient’s illusive scent. First launched in 1886 by 1894, over half a million bottles were sold annually. Today, new Crab Apple Blossom contains this signature spring flower in the top notes, used for the very first time in a Clive Christian fragrance. An exquisite ingredient which provides a mesmerising smell like a delicate kiss of spring.
Precious apple blossom is combined with sparkling marine bergamot, a reviving take on the bitter orange tree with just a hint of salty aquatic - a very rare ingredient in the world of perfumery. Together with bitter yuzu and cedarwood fusion, these delicate top notes provide an energizing and zest opening for a burst of freshness.
A fruity floral character is revealed in the heart offset against modern notes of sharp green rhubarb and a fresh mojito fusion, accompanied by delicate neroli and powerful floral notes of Osmanthus for a vibrant and invigorating heart.
A sophisticated but powerful base is enhanced by creamy sandalwood, a sumptuous ingredient used in many of the Clive Christian perfumes. Clive Christian only uses 50-year-old aged sandalwood, as part of our dedication to using the finest ingredients in the world. Enriched by salty and aromatic driftwood, the base of Crab Apple Blossom forms a fresh, energising citrusy yet soft scent. Combined with musk, amber and kashmirwood fusion, this olfactory composition will bring out the oceanic wood, making this scent reminiscent of rolling sea waves.
A new collection brought to life to celebrate a unique and prestigious perfume history spanning nearly two hundred years.
