William Sparks Thomson opened a corset business that served notable clients including Queen Victoria. Thomsons son created a lavender-based smelling salt to help prevent clients from fainting due to the tightness of the corsets. Ultimately, the Crown Perfumery was established in London and took a name inspired by the queen to symbolize elegance and luxury. Clive Christian is an English entrepreneur and furniture maker who acquired the brand in 1999. He continued producing the original Crown Perfumery fragrances, and there are now over 50 unique perfumes in the collection. All products are original, authentic name brands. We do not sell knockoffs or imitations.
