Arranging the notes of a perfume is similar to writing a musical work. Mozart’s Mass in C Minor transports the listener to another realm. No. 1 does the same thing. Like great composers, great perfumers are exceedingly rare. Both disciplines demand genius and passion. On the one hand, genius means the harmonious arrangement of the notes. On the other hand, passion stirs the soul. Together, the two bring forth enchantment.
Clive Christian has proven his genius in No. 1. Not only is it one of the world’s most memorable scents, it’s the most expensive. The bottle is handmade from lead crystal. 24-karat gold plate sits astride the neck of the bottle accompanied by a brilliant-cut diamond solitaire. The stopper replicates the original design approved by Queen Victoria.
The relentless pursuit of opulence is what has led to Clive Christian’s No. 1 Perfume.
