Fresh, fruity and comforting.
Crafting fragrances worthy of the Clive Christian portfolio takes time. Late into the night, the perfumer pores over his rare and delicately selected ingredients to achieve matchless blends of supreme elegance and quality, building on ideas formulated over months, if not years.
The long-awaited Noble VII is no exception, emerging triumphant from the walled gardens of the perfumer’s beloved Willaston Hall, buried deep in the heart of the English countryside and exhibiting a gold standard of Queen Anne architectural design. By the late 20th Century, Willaston Hall had fallen into a state of disrepair, leading Clive Christian to spend ten years restoring it to its former glory; lending his interior design skills and sowing the seeds for his latest offering to the world of perfume.
Marking the first in a series marrying Clive Christian’s two ruling passions – perfumery and heritage architecture – Noble VII celebrates the point at which nature and design meet, drawing on the early 18th century fashion for rare and exotic plants. During this time, botanists, explorers and plant collectors were at their peak; curating their gardens as pieces of showmanship that demonstrated their well-travelled and well-connected credentials.
