Clive Christian '1872' Men's Pure Perfume Spray
I only wear Clive Christian colognes, all of them in fact, and 1872 is my "fresh scent". This is the cologne that I wear when I want to feel laid back, and just have that "clean-cut" smell.
This, in my opinion isn't the cologne to wear if you're trying to "outshine" all of the gentleman around you. For that, I recommend No. 1, or C, but 1872 will definitely have people around you saying, " something smells good", "I'm sorry, but you smell really good. What is that scent that you're wearing"? That happens to me often.
For the gentleman that wants that clean, sophisticated, dare I say it, "aristocratic" yet more subtle (compared to the other Clive Christian scents for men), I'd recommend 1872.
The benefit of wearing Clive Christian scents is that each and everyone of them are different from one another as if each scent was a different type of event/persona in a 50ml crown adorned bottle, and you'll rarely be in a crowd with men wearing these scents due to their exclusivity, price point, and their limited availability. In fact, it's availability is so limited that many men and women in the general population aren't event familiar with the Clive Christian brand! After all, it's nice being the best smelling gentleman in the room!
With so many fragrances on the market, it seems fragrance designers are running out of scents to use. This is evident in the fact that many of the popular fragrances seem to smell the same. 1872 is a fragrance like no other. It is truely unique. The first time I encountered it, I fell in love with it's clean and refreshing scent. Every time that I wear it, someone asks me what I am wearing and were can they purchase it. I am very pleased with my purchase and feel that this product is worth the price. It is a perfume and not the usual cologne that other mens brands offer. Being perfume, you only need one spritz compared to the larger dose that cologne requires. The bottle will last for a long time.
The only thing I wear
It took me a large number of years to find my "signature" scent. 1872 fits that bill. Once you smell it you don't forget it. You will only need on spray and it will last the day. The bottle may be a bit on the expensive side, but compared to the less expensive brands that don't last, you'll keep this one longer.
I receive at least one compliment every time I go out in this scent. Sadly, it is no longer offered at my local Nordstroms and so I have to order it.
This fragrance has a very nice deep scent to it. It's expensive so I would recommend testing it out before you purchase it. I generally spray some on my skin and let it sit for an hour so I can get a good idea what it really smells like. Fragrances may often smell quite differently on your skin as compared when you just sniffing it. This fragrance smells good, is different but also expensive. Great for formal settings and dates.
