Crown Collection Matsukita

Clive Christian Perfume honours its unique provenance in the Crown Perfumery

Joining the brand’s latest collection- celebrating a unique and prestigious perfume history spanning nearly two hundred years. The Crown Collection from Clive Christian revives a perfumed past from its predecessor, the Crown Perfumery Company. Telling scented stories that echo throughout the eras, these perfumes bring to life archive and historic scents, reimagined for the modern day perfume connoisseur.

Searching through the Crown Perfumery Company archives Clive Christian 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 uncovered from history, 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.

An infamous Crown Perfumery perfume first created in 1892. Inspired by a fabled Japanese princess who awed the Victorian royal court with her elegance and grace this perfume was heavily advertised with hand painted illustrations during the late 1800’s. Today, Matsukita has been reimagined to capture this illusive elegance. With a fresh and invigorating top of green bergamot, pink pepper and a hint of nutmeg delving into a floral and woody heart of chinese imperial jasmine with smokey black tea; a base of ambers, whispering musks and woods give a warm and sensual finish. A sense of mystery and grace is captured in this unique new perfume.
