Creed is iconic in the world of fragrance. This French, family-owned company is constantly reinventing themselves and unveiling new offerings, while staying true to their heritage. This isn’t always easy with such a loyal fan base who have become addicted to their current lineup of fragrances and rely on them to keep their scent game at its peak.
This summer, Creed unveiled 1 liter (1000 milliliter) sized flacons, which come housed in stunning glass vessels and offer you your own personal reservoir of scent that can easily be poured into smaller bottles or atomizers for travel. The flacons of this size are not offered in every fragrance, however, my favorite is in the delicious Silver Mountain Water. The scent was inspired by sparkling rivers flowing through the snow-capped Swiss Alps, perfect for the winter season. In it, you’ll perceive notes of black currant, green tea and bergamot.
My favorite scent from Creed, hands down, is their Virgin Island Water. Olivier Creed was inspired by the air of the West Indies, concocting a perfect mix of rum, kaffir lime, coconut and salt. Whether you’re traveling to the Caribbean to escape the weather, or hunkered-down in a snow bank – people will literally stop you on the street to ask you what you are wearing.
Creed is the ultimate fragrance source for the autumn, holiday gifts and these two offerings are definitely going on my list from here until forever.
