CRAB APPLE BLOSSOM, A PERFUME LOVERS DREAM
Arguably one of the most famous of Crown Perfumery products this delicate perfume was first created in 1886. The original scent was inspired by the blossoming crab apple tree that grew outside the Crown Perfumery founder’s home in Kensington, London. William Sparks Thompson through his Crown Perfumery Company was the first to capture this unique ingredient’s illusive scent. First launched in 1886 by 1894, over half a million bottles were sold annually.
Exploring 151 ingredients selected among the finest and most rare sources and a concentration of 25%, Crab Apple Blossom takes the wearer on a journey through reinvented royal perfume history, marking the epitome of haute perfumery.
New Crab Apple Blossom contains the signature spring flower Apple Blossom, an exquisite ingredient which provides a mesmerizing smell like a delicate kiss of spring for an uplifting first impression. For an energizing and zesty opening, the precious flower is combined with sparkling top notes of Marine Bergamot, a reviving take on the bitter orange tree with just a hint of salty aquatic- very rare ingredient in the world of perfumery.
The heart of the scent bursts with a floral fruity character, beautifully combined with the citrusy freshness from the top. Green rhubarb adds a fresh bittersweet note, like a step into a quintessentially English garden. Both sour and sweet, this brightening ingredient is harmonized by Mojito Fusion, for a modern expression of sugar and fresh mint.
A sophisticated but powerful base is enhanced by creamy sandalwood, a sumptuous ingredient used in many of the Clive Christian perfumes. Although sandalwood is common in the world of perfumery, Clive Christian only uses 50 year old aged sandalwood, as part of our dedication to using the finest ingredients in the world.
Enriched by aromatic driftwood, the base of Crab Apple Blossom forms a fresh, energizing citrusy yet soft scent. Aromatic driftwood has the unique ability to provide a salty and aquatically feel even in the base. Combined with musk, this olfactory composition will bring out the oceanic wood, making this scent reminiscent of rolling sea waves.
