Flash Commentary: Oligarch Smoothie
PRAEFATIO

I'm only writing this comment because I'm too tired to distill my thoughts into a statement. Differentiated analysis and investigative background research are not to be expected. Therefore, whole trophies are not required, tenths of trophies will suffice. If necessary, please cut up existing raw cups accordingly (technical expertise have relevant known Berlin extended families).

BRAND + KLIENTEL

I'm not interested in Clive Christian's biography, nor do I know if he even exists, maybe he's something like the Doctor Summer team. Anyway, he/she/it bought out the traditional British Crown Perfumery, which had once been given the privilege by Queen Victoria to decorate its bottles with crowns. The crown was also the only thing that interested our Klaas Klever. So a kind of consul Weyer adoption in the corporate sector.

Fragrances from CC are a good choice if you want to get rid of 1000 euros and would like to have a perfume (value 100 euros), but have no ideas what else you could buy for the remaining 900 and find it ordinary to donate it to a charity. One then simply pays 1000 for the perfume. Of it the tax accountant fetches 500 from the tax office back and with it one can buy then still another CC cheap fragrance like this here (value 50 euro).

NAME

The name of this fragrance was originally X for Woman. Someone then brought it to the Clive's attention that this name was nowhere near cluttered enough to fit the fragrance.

Fragrance

OCXTFPOTPP doesn't really smell bad, but it's cobbled together aimlessly and uncharitably. It can best be described as a fruit smoothie in the tutti-frutti range with strong peach preponderance. Much like colorful flowers are added to salads these days, they didn't do so sparingly with this whole fruit drink, mashing in whatever blossoms were at hand. Wood, chemistry and something dubiously gourmand is also present. I still find most interesting a potentially quite powerful dirt vertical from a pithy iris root to a patch far too wicked for hippies, but even this thing soon fritters and peters out in the London mishmash.

FLAKON

In its bizarrely failed design, the flacon has a repulsive (Switzerland: poking) effect on all people with a sense of classical proportions. The offensive lies primarily in its slaying overarching by a cap, which was enlarged into the grotesque to make the crown acquired by Cliff Barnes really unmissable. As if it were bloated from alcohol abuses. To make matters worse, the crown was adorned with obscure ornamentation and designed to resemble less a royal hat than a pizza chef's cap or, worse, a male body part that rhymes with vote.

From the kitchen to the bottle
That Christian has become a perfumer was pure coincidence. What coincidences don't exist. An original interior decorator became one of the most gifted perfumers through an "attic find".
To the topic coincidence: in my opinion the gloss has always been missing in my collection and I wanted to bring it in with Clive Christian.
I got myself a 10ml Travel Size bottle back then. The bottle is a little dream. Not too playful and kitschy but nevertheless extremely elegant and unisex.
I put on the scent and fell out of all the clouds. In my youth I had bought this one bottle from the "cheaper" shelf from the miller. I think almost everyone smelled like the banani back then. I actually recognized him in the CC.
Clear in the quality and "purity" of the fragrance, CC cannot be surpassed. CC is much warmer, has more depth and Eike's good load of peach makes him look youthful but somehow grown up. The Banani's like a "kitschplörre" against him.
I like the banani. And it has a good price-performance ratio. The CC there I understand the price surely also. This fragrance is incredibly high quality and maximum luxurious.
Durability unsurpassed. You can barely get it off your skin. But I wouldn't buy a 50 or a 100 from it. The 10ml will probably last me the next few years. He remains something special and I really don't need much of it

A non obvious Tresor descendant
It might not seem, but X for Women descends directly from one of the most influent fragrance in the feminine fragrances, the fruity floral made by Sophia Grosjman for Lancôme, Tresor. The main Tresor structure is here, tough not in the same proportion; i feel that the musk and iso e super influence are reduced or masked to fit the cleaned patchouli, without the typical earthiness of this material, which gives the fragrance a typical touch of a modern chypre fragrance. The sweet violet aroma of ionones (synthetic molecules used to create both violet and iris accord) is also smaller here, what makes it difficult to see clearly the Tresor Influence. This way what ends standing out more for me is the fruity and milky touch from the aldehyde C14 (which is really a lactone instead of an aldehyde), very used to create this silky peach touch. The jasmine aroma here is luminous, light, abstract, typical of compositions where hedione is used, filled here with some synthetics or an accord that modify this floral part and also give a spicy floral aroma, something that reminds me in some angles a carnation aroma. Certainly this is a quite beautiful fragrance, hot, of excellent performance and evolution on skin, but this is another Clive creation clearly commercial disguised in a luxury fragrance, using the same synthetics and saying that uses precious materials (it might even be used here, but only in small amounts). Certainly, it's a good example of a)when you purchase an expensive fragrance, 50% of the price is probably the exclusivity aura and b) a luxury fragrance doesn't need to be expensive in its composition, but has to look like it is.

Ripe wonderful fruits (especially peaches) with a touch of musk. Narcotic-seductive.
