Key Notes of No. 1 for Men

What Does No. 1 for Men Smell Like

The No. 1 for Men by Clive Christian opens with a surprising aroma, leading with the sharp, vegetal scent of bell pepper. This is softened by the tangy freshness of lime, adding a zesty kick. The spicy notes of cardamom and nutmeg come into play next, with a subtle hint of sweet mandarin orange and grapefruit following close behind. There’s a slight edge of tarragon, giving a whiff of anise-like freshness, tamed by the earthy scent of caraway.

As the perfume evolves, the heart unfolds with the powdery scent of iris blossoms, coupled with the intoxicating, rich aroma of jasmine and the sweet, greenish note of lily of the valley. Ylang-ylang adds a deep, creamy smell, while the soft floral note of heliotrope and rose subtly intertwine to add depth.

In the dry-down, cedar asserts itself with a warm, woody aroma, mellowed by the sensual touch of musk. A hint of vanilla imparts a comforting sweetness, while amber adds a resinous depth. The subtle blend of sandalwood, tonka bean, and vetiver in the base gives a final woody, earthy and slightly sweet finish to the fragrance.

Review of No. 1 for Men

Clive Christian's No. 1 for Men is a robust perfume with a character that leans towards a more mature, masculine crowd. Its heart is a symphony of floral notes, offering a gentle powdery touch that is balanced by a hint of spiciness. This is not a scent that stays in the background; instead, it stands out, embodying a woody undertone that grounds the floral medley and adds a sense of depth. An oriental touch weaves through the perfume's composition, subtly sweetened and finished with a fresh, fruity note.

This perfume performs exceptionally well in the cooler months of fall and spring, and even winter. Its scent lends itself perfectly to an evening out or a relaxed night out, though it could hold its own during the daily grind as well. As for value, the perfume is likely to be viewed as a more lavish choice. However, if you're looking for a complex, commanding scent that can turn heads, Clive Christian's No. 1 for Men is worth considering.
