The invigorating top notes of the perfume are a blend of citrus oils centered on the rich warmth of bergamot that is given a masculine edge with black pepper and a touch of neroli. The heart revolves around the fusion of lavender, violet, herbs and the rich character of rock rose. The base is a combination of dark cocoa and patchouli with an abundance of amber and a touch of sparkling vetiver to compliment the citrus accord on top.
Clive Christian Noble VII Cosmos Flower: This feminine, yet complex perfume has a delicious blend of sweet benzoin and caramel in the base is given a Chypre twist with bitter cocoa, dry amber and a touch of leather that unfurls as the fragrance warms. The bouquet at the heart wraps around a rich fruity plum accord that fuses with the intensity of ylang-ylang, the sensuality of jasmine, the fruitiness of osmanthus and the chocolaty note of cosmos flower. To replicate the rich aroma of the cosmos flower, natural cocoa has been used in the heart, adding a dark bitter edge to the perfume. A distinct fruit character is also found at the top of the fragrance, while sparkling pink pepper and a touch of fiery rum bring warmth and delight.
