Ingredients with these qualities have to be encased inside a container as spectacular as the liquid itself. The bottle of crystal French Baccarat carries an 18-carat gold ring on the neck with a diamond in the center.
A luxury, within the reach of very few, not only due to the price but because the British company only produces 1000 units of the 1.0 ounce bottles per year. Also, only 10 bottles of the Limited Edition Clive Christian Imperial Majesty’s 16.9 oz. were made, presented in a casket of ebony doubled by velvet of gold and platinum, inside a Baccarat glass bottle, crowned by a white diamond of five carat. The handcrafted elaboration of each of these bottles pursues perfection.
Clive Christian is best known for his kitchen designs and is the owner of No1. He purchased the perfumery The Crown, one of Britain’s foremost perfume houses, founded in 1872. Catering to the high society, No.1 Imperial Majesty was designed at the request of Queen Victoria of England in 1972. In 1912, passengers of the Titanic choose it to further enhance the luxury of the cabins.
The perfumery features only the finest ingredients: herbs, flowers, aromatic woods and natural oils. The fragrances are topped with Queen Victoria’s crown replica as a sign of quality, elegance, and excellence.
Inspired by luxury, in 1999, Clive Christian revived the Crown perfumes, keeping traditions of quality and the classic bottle design.
