1872 for Women Perfume Spray by Clive Christian.
Effortless elegance, this classic, citrus perfume opens to a heart of Rose de Mai (170 roses are required to create a single drop of the precious Rose de Mai associated with purity and the presence of an angel), which has often been associated with the presence of an angel. So pure that 170 roses are needed to make just one drop. Rose de Mai is so rare that it blooms for just three weeks each year in May. Known as 'The Painter's Rose and still sourced in Grasse, France, to produce one pound of absolute, 10,000 pounds of rose blossoms must be handpicked before dawn.
A classic, pure fragrance made in honor of the year the renowned Crown Perfumery was founded.
Top notes: bergamot, tangerine, lemon, pineapple, blueberry and rosemary.
Heart notes: rose de mai, lily of the valley, jasmine, purple violet, and freesia.
Base notes: cedarwood, sandalwood, patchouli, erogen musk, and moss.
