THE connoisseur'S METHOD OF CREATING SIGNATURE PERFUME

BLENDED  |  MACERATED  |  FILTERED  |  PERFECTED

Each luxurious Christopher Hanlon® perfume begins a sensorial journey as a mishmash of essential oils, resins, tars, concretes, twigs, leaves and flowers. The botanical brew is slowly fermented to develop Hanlon's® idiosyncratic and sophisticated perfume accords. Once the concoction has reached an optimum age and aroma, the blend is filtered to exhibit glasslike perfume characteristics. Finally it is decanted and bottled by the perfumer. Christopher Hanlon's® coveted perfume concoctions, now fully formed and crystal clear, are ultimately displayed ever-so-precisely and discreetly in the most private of bathrooms; servicing the personal needs of the world's wealthiest, the jet-set, dignitaries, royalty, pop stars and tycoons. It took over 140 years to learn the bekoning secrets of the family pot.

As a traditional artisan Christopher Hanlon® revels in the intricate facets of a luxury brand, having studied Fashion Design, Graphic Design and Marketing formally at College. The brand's architectural history encapsulates a spellbounding fusion of quintessential Australian architecture. A convict built, multilevel flagship store overlooking the iconic Sydney Opera House on George Street and his magnificent Victorian Boutique in the heart of Sydney at The Strand Arcade. Hanlon's eye is evident with his cool contemporary edge. His multimillion dollar stores are all ways effortlessly relaxed but wickedly charismatic and Christopher, nothing short of the consummate Aussie creative. Warmly greeting clients... With pioneering Australian blood in his direct lineage, exploring and experimenting is, by his own admission, a natural born instinct.

I HAVE BEEN RAISED IN A FAMILY WITH AN IMPORTANCE ON EXPRESSING AND BEING TRUE TO YOURSELF DESPITE POPULIST OPINION AND ALWAYS WITH POLITE RESPECTFUL MANNERS
— Christopher Hanlon®

If his ingenuity is the search for those elusive and unique Australian botanical notes for his formulations, it is a benchmark of the perfumer’s insatiable imagination and unmistakable flair. 

Christopher has recently received Australian Government funding to pursue the discovery and development of his next fragrant adventure. Hopefully another new addition to his oeuvre that is neither French traditional nor classic Italian perfumery, but uniquely Australian.

On closer olfactory observation his signature accords are somewhat more fruity and delicious than mainstream commercial perfume, exhibiting the exceptionally deep and rich aromatic twists from the use of outback botanicals like Lemon Myrtle, Kangaroo Paw and Australian Banksia Absolute. Undoubtedly it is precisely these unexpected perfume notes that lend his collection an inimitable sensory flair. A signature.

Looking to the canvas of hIs work, Christopher explains, these fundamental perfume differences. No surprises then that he confesses to a complete addiction to perfume and art since childhood. As the man himself says:

GOOD PERFUME IS ESSENTIAL, LIKE ART, TO GOOD LIVING
