Discover NEW Matsukita, the latest perfume to join the new Crown Collection by Clive Christian. Matsukita was inspired ‘by a fabled Japanese princess who awed the Victorian royal court with her elegance and grace’ – first launched in 1892 by Crown Perfumery, and heavily advertised with lavish, hand painted illustrations.
Today, Matsukita ‘has been reimagined to capture this illusive elegance.’ A deliciously woody chypre, there’s an invigorating freshness wafting around the top notes to keep this breezy and beautiful. Green bergamot, pink pepper and intriguing nutmeg swoop to the floral, woody heart of Chinese imperial jasmine infused with with smokey black tea. The smoke dispersing to reveal an amber-rich base swathed in whisper-soft musk add further to the ‘sense of mystery and grace’ they hoped to capture of the original.
Green bergamot meets sparkling pink pepper and spicy nutmeg for a fresh and invigorating top, laced with a floral and smokey heart of Chinese imperial jasmine and mate tea. Hints of jasmine sambac and guaiac oil complement woody tones, whilst rich amber, fir balsam absolute and whispering musks form a sensual and warm base.
Telling scented stories that echo throughout the eras, these perfumes bring to life archive and historic scents, reimagined for the modern day perfume connoisseur. Celebrating a unique and prestigious perfume history spanning nearly two hundred years, the Crown Collection from Clive Christian revives a perfumed past.
