  • Gourmande

Inspiration

Royal Recognition

Inspired by the opulent interiors of Buckingham Palace, where Clive Christian received his OBE for services to luxury British design, the perfume perfectly encapsulates the aura of excellence that permeated this most auspicious of occasions. As well as expressing the sublime design detail on the palace, this rich and sumptuous perfume built around a resinous amber base, gives life to the overriding sense of pride and joy of receiving such a remarkable honour.

Top Note

Rum

Rum is obtained from sugar cane, and as it ages it absorbs complex woody notes from the barrels it is stored in to give its unique flavour and odour

Heart note

Labdanum

Labdanum is a resin obtained from the cistus labdanum plant which has a rich, leathery, smoky and sweet scent.

Base Note

Maple

Base notes of sweet bourbon vanilla, warm caramel and maple syrup
