1872 for Women
Brand Clive Christian
Inside its verdant bottle originally designed inthe momentous year of its name, 1872 for Women houses an effervescent rose whose clean, fresh and green notes burst forth as if from a popped champagne bottle. Interestingly, for a perfume named after the past, 1872 for Women recalls nothing of rose’s usual conservative and stodgy reputation. This is a young and fresh rose, with top notes such as bergamot, tangerine and lemon and a light chypre dry down of patchouli, moss, cedar, sandalwood and musk.
A sheer and fresh Rose de Mai — whose green facets are pushed to the fore by lily of the valley — glimmers at the heart of 1872 for Women. Also known as the “painter’s rose, ” this precious flower blooms only for three weeks in Grasse, France, and it takes 170 heads of Rose de Mai for just one drop of 1872 for Women. With intense projection and longevity, 1872 belies its central flower’s poetically short life. Hesperidic, clean and cheerful, 1872 is a jolt for the senses.
