I’ve had a really blessed week. Minus the terrible NYC weather and my allergies trying to keep me down, I met so many beauty heroes, including Clive Christian earlier this week! For me, Clive Christian has always been this mythical person. Super mysterious, probably because he’s British and has what seems like this heritage fragrance brand that would date back to a royals in the 17th century. But alas he’s only been doing fragrance since 1999, starting with fragrance No. 1 which quickly earned him the crown for creating “the worlds most expensive perfume”. No mater in date, his fragrances carry that elegance and regal feel (the caps are even crowns). And it should be noted he was very established (or maybe famous is a more appropriate word) in the world of interiors when he introduced fragrance as an extension of his brand. I took none of that lightly as I walked into the ever elegant Baccarat Hotel, to meet him and hear about his latest fragrance pair, Noble VII Cosmos Flower and Rose Rock.
So just a few notes on brand for anyone looking to get more acquainted, Noble VII is in fact the 7th fragrance pair. And he launches every new fragrance as a pair (so technically its the 13th and 14th scent in the collection). Back in the day you could say the pairings were a feminine and masculine scent but now all the lines are blurred with so consider it unisex with one leaning more in one direction.
The Original Collection featured the first three scent pairs, followed by the Private Collection, which featured the next 3 pairings, and now in a new category we have the seventh scent pairing, Noble VII available in Cosmos Flower and Rock Rose.
Inspired by his magnificent residence, specifically the exquisite garden, which to give you some idea of how vast and stunning this property is it was Queen Anne’s residence in 1730! And of course it’s in the English countryside which just adds to the romance (click HERE to see an image and learn more about the residence).
