 My Comment:

Clive Christian No 1 for men is one of the worlds expensive perfume, launched in 2001 from the house of Clive Christian by the perfumer – Patricia Choux.

If I have to say key words – “Luxury and classic “

 It is one of the best perfumes I have tried.  It is an eau de perfume (high concentration) and smells bit floral, easily misunderstood as feminine scent by average nose, but it is not.

Since it is so highly concentrated, you just need 1 – 2 sprays, more than that ? I will not recommend. I normally go for 2 – half sprays in neck and 1 spray in back of the neck.


This perfume is finely crafted by selecting best materials around the world,

(The ingredient Sandalwood – is from Mysore (Karnataka, India) popularly know as Mysore sandalwood one of the worlds best sandalwood.

And Vetiver (Tamil word) is also from India.)


You cannot ware this perfume on a daily basis, unless you can afford it, is there any special occasion  (specially dressed up event) then this perfume is the choice.

Smell of Ylang-ylang gives a ton of confidence you will feel like a King !  and then followed by Iris emphasizing your presence to others up to 6-8 hrs after applying then comes the dried down part- smooth sandalwood, which will last another 4- 5 hrs or even more.

This perfume will make other realize that something special is around them and for sure you will get compliments.


All together 10 – 12 hrs of scent, for this price is it worth the money? Depends on individual, this is for sure not the regular perfume you find in your local store, and not all will appreciate it, needs knowledgeable nose.

 If I have to say (Try or Buy) a definite Try, this Juice is truly amazing.
