Clive Christian perfumes are the epitome of luxury fragrances and home scents! Committed to using a high concentration of 20-25% in their fragrances (other fragrances tend to only use around 15% concentration), they are also committed to using only the very best ingredients from rare and globally sourced naturals.


I had been lucky enough to have worked with the brand on this special Christmas post, in which I will be reviewing their No.1 Masculine Edition fragrance alongside their No.1 candle which contains their top notes from the fragrance.


Both the fragrance and candle come in their own velvet pouches with are beautifully wrapped in the brands ribbons already giving it that added elegant touch. Firstly, let’s just take a look at the bottle of No.1. fragrance. It is simply beautiful, so beautiful in fact, that it was received the UK FIFI Award in 2006 for special packaging.

  • Top Notes: Thyme

  • Middle Notes: Lily Of The Valley

  • Base Notes: Tonka Bean


An oriental fragrance, the opening of No.1 Masculine Edition begins with a citrusy and floral burst that seems a little sharp to begin with but then dries down into a softer, more delicate scent. The fragrance could be seen as rather feminine for what is classed as a ‘Masculine’ fragrance, however with that being said, there is a strong undertone during the dry-down of a woody and earthy scent that blends beautifully with the floral notes which can at times, feel rather prominent.

I find that this fragrance is a contradiction in itself as the journey seems to go in one direction, but ends up completely different! It took around 1 hour for the fragrance to fully settle on my skin at which point I felt that I enjoyed the scent the best.


To wear this fragrance, I would recommend wearing it on a nighttime to make an impact, as its sillage and projection is medium-heavy which will last long into the night! The longevity of No.1 Masculine Edition lasted for 8-9 hours upon my skin, one of the longest lasting fragrances I have tried thus far.

In candle form, the scent is inspired by No.1 and comes in 3 different candles for the 3 different stages throughout; Top Notes, Middle Notes and Base Notes. I received the ‘Top Notes’ candle which features notes of White Peach, Nutmeg and Bergamot. The candle leaves the space feeling warm and elegant with a subtle scent in the air without feeling too overbearing!

As Clive Christian perfumes are created using special and rare ingredients, these of course do come at a cost. The fragrance of No.1 Masculine Edition is available in two different sizes:

  1. 30ml for £295

  2. 50ml for £450

As stated before, the candle comes in a trio and each glass vessel is sprayed in champagne gold, adding that elegant and classy touch! To purchase the trio of No.1 Candle set, click here.

I am a huge fan of fragrances as you may know, and I average on 20 bottles per year... I like to mix them up, what can I say? With that being said, I recently came across Clive Christian and have since become very intrigued by his wide array of perfumes for men!

Summer is now drawing to an end and as we begin to enter the cold, darker weather, I often find that the transitioning of seasons is the perfect excuse to refresh your fragrance wardrobe and to help you do so, I have created a little Luxury Gift Guide!

Clive Christian has many choices of fragrances which have been categorized into 3 collections, and from these, I have selected my favourite fragrances from each.

Please note that I haven't yet had the experience with each fragrance, and I have only made my choice from seeing the notes that I like, and my instinct purely from the descriptions of each scent.

No.1 Fragrance:

  • Top Note - Thyme
  • Heart Note - Lily Of The Valley
  • Base Note - Tonka Bean

I chose the No.1 fragrance as Tonka Bean remains a favourite note of mine! A rich, creamy note which I can only imagine will smell divine blending with the herbaceous note of Thyme mixed with the citrusy note of the Lily Of The Valley!

Noble VIII Immortelle Fragrance:

  • Heart Note - Immortelle
  • Base Note - Papyrus

Noble VIII Immortelle sounds the most intriguing to me, opening up with a burst of Bergamot which then settles into a rather floral fragrance, finally finishing off as a woody, dry fragrance!
