Clive Christian luxury British perfume at Salon de Parfums, Harrods offers a sensual journey of discovery and pampering.
I use the word pampering as I was looked after in exquisite luxury, on a one to one level whilst sat coiffing champagne. This experience will allow your senses to be adorned by perfume of distinction and passion.

We recently had a wonderful visit to Clive Christian at the super luxurious Salon de Parfums at Harrods, where we received a bespoke consultation at the Clive Christian Boutique. I can genuinely say I was taken on a sensorial journey by their fragrance expert.
In simple terms I fell in love with the fragrances which are rich and sophisticated. Sat on plush velvet seats I was able to have a one to one conversation and properly relax. I was charmed and not only was the fragrance expert knowledgeable, but I walked away having learnt some new things.
For those of you who like Gentlemans Butler, you will know these attributes are key and particularly when choosing something so personal as buying luxury perfume for you or your loved one.
We spoke about masculine and feminine fragrances and for example I prefer wearing the feminine and she preferred the masculine which is probably why we just need to follow our heart and that is why sitting down with such a reputable brand and charming perfume specialist to discover what really works for you is so important.
One of Clive Christian’s pivotal pillars is pairing, “exquisite apart, extraordinary together”, each perfume is created as a pair originated from 1872 where the brand continue to celebrate the love story of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert; masculine and feminine orientation is purely a client’s personal choice.
From our experience we have chosen “Gentlemans Butler’s Choice”
20% Perfume Concentrate. An exotic chypre that evokes the heady passion between Cleopatra and Marc Anthony thanks to the abundance of Egyptian Jasmine at its heart. A pervading sense of seduction is brought to life through the mingling of juicy bergamot, mandarin and rhubarb and sensual cashmere and cedarwood.
20% Perfume Concentration. Combines Cardamom, Orris and Cinnamon to create a spicy, woody perfume. Its soft, warm heart note makes it equally appealing to both men and women.
20% Perfume Concentration. A floral oriental, with fruity top notes of Mirabelle Plum, white Peach and Bergamot which slowly and sensually unravel to reveal Jasmine, Carnation and a heart blooming with Rose, a flower symbolic of Aphrodite’s gardens of love and beauty. A rich and complex perfume that is subtle yet sophisticated.
Amber oriental, Floral, Fruity – Deeply sensual and alluring, the warm creamy and distinctly aromatic notes from the X perfumes captivate as a tempting scented candle trio. 3 x 60g / Burn time approximately 22 hours per candle.
These are a mix of opulence and luxury which is intoxicating. Lovely.
Whilst you enjoy your champagne, we recommend you have your perfumes gift wrapped in their beautiful Clive Christian gold and black wrapping paper and ask for the traditional hot wax stamping service with your chosen initials.
We adored this touch of tradition and intimacy.

The brand’s predecessor, the Crown Perfumery Company established in 1872, is the only house ever to have been granted permission to use Queen Victoria’s crown on its bottles. An image that defines every bottle of Clive Christian perfume to this day. In 1999 Clive Christian perfume launched the Original Collection which includes 1872, X and No.1. This was later followed by The Private Collection, re-imagined in 2017 inspired by memories of an extraordinary life, a life written in perfume. The Noble collection was launched in 2016 celebrating eras of architectural and horticultural prominence and style. Most recently the perfume house launched Addictive Arts in 2017, inspired by mood enhancing ingredients this suite of forbidden perfumes is the “after dark” face of Clive Christian.
