For the third and final entry in their Private Collection series, Clive and Victoria Christian selected the letter “L, ” to represent love: both the love between a father and daughter that has been the foundation of their esteemed fragrance house, and the love and harmony between carefully selected ingredients that allows Clive Christian’s often imposingly vast notes lists to result in exquisitely balanced, supremely tasteful compositions. And, as before, the results of L for Men are stunning: an intricately spiced, deeply woodsy masculine that positively hums with life.
L for Men opens with a vibrant thrum of bright citrus led by juicy grapefruit and petit grain, which lead into a dynamically spicy but expertly balanced heart of cumin, nutmeg, cardamom and clove. While the spices invigorate the senses, a warm balsamic mix of fir and rose deepen the composition, opening space for the rich atlas cedarwood and earthy vetiver of the base. An emergent musk lends sensuality, while a touch of fine oud adds to L for Men’s distinctive modern profile without overwhelming. Opulently sophisticated, quintessentially refined, and surprisingly lively, L for Men is another stroke of luxurious mastery from Clive Christian.
