Vision in a Dream Psychedelic £525
A whirling, psychedelic dream of a perfume. A fresh top note of kaffir, lime leaf and armoire winding round bitter greens of almond, galbanum, apple skin and violet leaf. A smoky incense accord of papyrus fused in labdanum and olibanum. Amidst tones of suede and hot spicy cinnamon, pepper and clove. It moves on through these golden, hallucinated plains, to woods of sandalwood, patchouli, vetiver and cedar
The Clive Christian Addictive Arts Collection is a perfume experience like no other. Provocative, decadent and hedonistic, the collection is an enthralling expression of our tendency to excess, of libertine pleasures and a wild nature waiting to be awakened underneath the refined visage. It is - some might say... the 'after dark' of Clive Christian
Vision in a Dream
I SAW IT BUT ONCE – A SHINING CITY. WHEN I WAS A CHILD. GLIMMERING, IN DUST THIS GREAT FORTRESS OF GLEAMING SPIRES AND CLOUD-CAPPED TOWERS. OF SOLEMN TEMPLES. AND GORGEOUS PALACES. YET, I AWOKE AND, STARTING FROM THIS CHILDLIKE SLEEP FOUND A GREY, FAMILIAR WORLD. THOUGH THIS BE ADDICTIVE – A POEM IN A PERFUME BOTTLE – STILL IT MAKES ME TO RETURN. AND LIKE THAT INSUBSTANTIAL PAGEANT FADED SO TOO THE VERY ROOT AND SUBSTANCE OF MY AFFLICTION DO DISSOLVE. PRESSED OF BITTEREST FRUITS – ALMOND, ARMOISE AND KAFFIR LIME IT FUSES SMOKY INCENSE OF PAPYRUS AND LABDANUM THAT WARMS TO VANILLA, TONKA AND RICH PINK PEPPER. AND BRINGS ME ONCE MORE THIS GOLDEN LAND THOUGH IT RECEDES ONCE MORE AGAIN.
