Premiere: 2001 Size: 50 ml Gender: MenNotes: Bergamot, spices, cardamom, ginger, and juniper berry, sambac oil, jasmine hedione, pimento oil, orris, amber, vetiver oil, cedarwood, moss, cinnamon, and vanilla
Take the lushest jasmine and light it on fire with the warming spices of cinnamon, ginger and cardamom. Let it smolder on a bed of rich orris and vanilla as aromatic rays of cedarwood subtly radiate in the background, and you have Clive Christian's cuddly yet sexy X for Men. In Clive Christian's X Series, perfume's aphrodisiac qualities are brought to the fore. In X for Men, orris (from the Iris flower's buttery rich and powdery soft roots) and Karo Karundi (a white flower essence from the West African shrub whose scent is reminiscent of Acacia) both help to power X for Men's gentle eros. Although cedarwood, a conventionally masculine note, hums continuously throughout X for Men, the perfume leans closer as a unisex fragrance, and could equally be inhaled from a male or female lover's pulse points and neck.
