Like a conversation, perfume is an expression, conveyed at times in the form of a declaration and at other times a secret.

A space offering complete freedom to elicit without compromise while coveting secrets and privacy as well.

First launched in 1999, The Original Collection was the inaugural collection to be released by Clive Christian Perfumes.
Setting the benchmark for exquisite fragrances crafted from extraordinary ingredients, the collection would go on to epitomise the perfume house and celebrate the heritage and philosophy of the original Crown Perfumery Company that had been established in 1872.
Having taken ownership of this prestigious company in 1999,
Clive Christian OBE had a very clear vision: to use the very finest ingredients to create perfumes that were unlike any other; perfumes that had quality, depth and complexity at their heart.
Having delved into the archives to unearth ingredients and formulas from the company’s past, three pairs of perfumes were crafted
and the Original Collection was born. While these were perfumes that referenced the company’s illustrious heritage, they were also fragrances that were perfectly in tune with modern day tastes.

« This is not a blue bottle 1.1 », « This is not a blue bottle 1.2 » and « This is not a blue bottle 1.3 »
This is not a blue bottle derives its name from The Treachery of Images, a famous work in the 1920s by the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte. The painting shows the image of a pipe above a declaration which reads, translated from French, as “This is not a pipe”. In between the line where things go from void to existence, there is a profound depth of possibility.
This is not a blue bottle is the allegory of a fragrant big bang, a journey from the abstract to the most fiery of emotions in the infinite realm of blue. This is the expression of an olfactory hallucination and a blue page representing freedom of expression for all.
« This is not a blue bottle 1.4 » and « This is not a blue bottle 1.5 » Ying & Yang
In the Yin Yang philosophy, every element in the universe has its own opposite: feminine-masculine, day-night, fire-water, natural-synthetic…
Yin & Yang are two complementary forces that are interdependent on one another. They are two aspects of the same reality.
1.4, Yin, the natural energy focus on itself, the inner power, the depth of the elements, the return to the sources and the reflection.
1.5, Yang, the synthetic energy entirely outward-looking, the creative power, the vivacity, the future, the evolution and the action.
