Crown Collection perfumes will be launched individually to pay tribute to the heritage of the brand and the perfumes.
After its original launch in 1892, Matsukita quickly became one of the Crown Perfumery Company's most famed perfumes. The inspiration behind the new bestseller flourished from the exotic influence of Japan. The fascination for this culture boomed and became a prominent trend in Victorian England. The British Empire's emergent trade opened up to a world of new societies, and from the 1850s the new trend of influence reigned throughout the scene of entertainment, fashion and culture in the city of London.
Needless to say, the trend was picked up by the renowned Crown Perfumery Company, whose clientele were of the world's society elite and involved the royal court amongst others. With a passion for the most exclusive and finest the world had to offer, Matsukita was born out of inspiration from a fabled Japanese princess who awed the Victorian court with her elegance.
In 2021, the story of the Japanese princess has been discovered amongst the treasured archives of the Crown Perfumery Company. Nevertheless, her name has been kept a secret since the 1800s, and Clive Christian's reimagination of the scent is the only trace left to relive this story in the modern day. New Matsukita captures a mystical grace from the finest ingredients in a potent concentration with a powerful royal heritage unique to the world of perfumery.
Using unique innovations in perfumery with haunting floral notes from the far east with whispers of smoked tea, musks and rich resinous woods, new Matsukita is crafted with an impressive range of 252 ingredients and 25% parfum concentration.
The archive description reads an "intoxication of delight", an aspect captured for today's modern perfume connoisseurs through a burst of sensual and outstanding notes, selected from the finest and most rare sources in the world.
Green bergamot notes meet sparkling pink pepper and spicy nutmeg for a fresh and invigorating top, laced by a floral and smokey heart of Chinese imperial Jasmine and Mate Tea. Hints of jasmin sambac and guaiac oil complements woody tones, whilst rich amber, fir balsam absolute and whispering musks form a sensual and warm base for a mysterious and complex fragrance bursting with elegance from a forgotten past.
A sophisticated and elegant perfume, creating a dichotomy of light and dark, perfect to immerse you in a distinct perfume dream of excellence and quality at its very best. As with all Clive Christian perfumes each bottle is topped with our signature crown stopper, a sign of perfume prestige since 1872.
For a limited time only all purchases of Matsukita come with an elegant fan in our striking Matsukita print.
