CLIVE CHRISTIAN Crab Apple Blossom perfume 50ml
In many ways this was the beginning of the Crown Perfumery’s fine fragrance empire, the most famous of William Thompsons perfumes and one of the earliest recorded scents.
Designed to be worn alone or layered this perfume from the portfolio was inspired by the apple blossom tree that grew outside William Sparks Thompson’s home in the Boltons, Kensington. This ingredient, never captured before, was immortalised in this iconic Crown Perfumery Fragrance, a revolution for its time.
First launched in 1886, by 1894 over half a million bottles were sold annually.
A beautiful celebration of apple blossom top notes infused by marine bergamot, bitter yuzu, lemon, mandarin and exquisite Citruswood fusion. The sensuous heart of neroli and osmanthus is perfectly balanced with water lily, green rhubarb and a hint of fruity mojito aroma fusion adding unexpected twist to the fragrance. Creamy sandalwood, moss, amber and Kasmirwood fusion enhances the trail of the scent.
