C for Men
Brand Clive Christian
A leather woody oriental, Clive Christian's C for Men smells like the distillation of a poet's library, redolent with the scents of a broken-in, well-worn leather club chair, tobacco from a rolled cigarette, spices from steeping orange-cardamom tea, and the green and woodsy notes wafting in from an open window.
The natural Oud in C for Men has that note's earthy, woody and resiny character, but saffron and orris temper the haunting note, rendering it unusually delicate and soft, like an olfactory echo of the ouch's usually louder presence. Contemplative, sexy and earthy, although C is designated for Men, this bohemian scent swings both ways.
