Clive Christian Perfume is a leading independent British perfume house with a vision to create the world's finest perfumes. The brand's predecessor, the Crown Perfumery Company established in 1872, is the only house ever to have been granted permission to use Queen Victoria's crown on its bottles, an image that defines every bottle of Clive Christian perfume to this day.
In 1872 the Crown Perfumery was established in London and in that year Queen Victoria gave the perfumery permission to use the crown on its bottles, a signature ever since.
By 1879 the Crown Perfumery Company was exporting half a million bottles of 49 different scents to 47 different countries around the world. In 1912, Crown Perfumery products are noted in the ships log of the First Class cabins of The Titanic.
