Clematis flowers have no odour and so historically (like classic orchid bases,) they are fantasy creations. This Fraterworks base is a restoration of the wonderous Roure Clematis base of the 1930s which was used by Jean Carles in combination with his Fleur de Tabac base to construct Shocking for Schiaparelli in 1937, a wild perfume built around a heat of pink florals. It is from this fashion house and fragrance that the colour “shocking pink” was born.
Wonderfully floral, rich and aldehydic, this clematis base would find a home in a modern fragrance as easily as it did the classics of yesteryear.

This is neither a perfume nor a foodstuff; it is a raw material for use in manufacturing. Do not consume. Do not apply to skin. Keep away from children.
Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.
All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

This is definitely a Golden Age base recreation (it seems like it would be a no-brainer for an old accord but for modern accords, I’d probably use this as a focus point and work my own formula around this as it is complex). Beautiful, floral, “je ne sais quoi”-type and a little ‘perfume-like’ on its own. Comment: the pink and purple clematis flowers we are all used to don’t smell much, so I was expecting this to be the fantasy base it is - and a beautiful one at that! There are a few clematis varieties that do smell, but this does not at all smell like those!!!
At first sniff, I get Chanel No.5 with emphasis on Ylang Ylang. This is a perfume base that needs very little to embellish it but one still could. I utilized it in a formula I made with many ingredients and it pulls everything together. I'm continually impressed with Jamie's restorations of these Golden Age of Perfumery bases.
Bravo again, Mr. Frater.
