HANLON® SINCE 1875
THE connoisseur'S METHOD OF MAKING PERFUME
BLENDED | MACERATED | FILTERED | PERFECTED
Each luxurious Christopher Hanlon® pure perfume (fr. parfum) begins a sensorial journey as a mishmash of essential oils, resins, attars, aromatic absolutes, 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 signature aroma, the blend is carefully mixed and tripple-filtered to exhibit glasslike perfume characteristics. Finally the shimmering maceration is carefully decanted and bottled by the perfumer. Used as either a pure perfume concentrate or blended with other ingredients to produce such things as Eau de Toilette and Body Crème. Whatever the final usage Christopher Hanlon's® coveted perfume concoctions are now fully formed and crystal clear. They 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. Christopher is the author of a lavish collection of signature perfumes which use unique Australian accords inspired by his family’s pioneering Australian outback heritage.
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.
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:
