The House of Creed

The House of Creed is the world's only privately held luxury fragrance dynasty, founded in 1760 and passed from father to son since then, serving more than 11 royal houses and the public for 246 years. Today the firm is led by sixth-generation perfumer Olivier Creed.

In the twentieth century, Creed continued to be extremely popular with celebrities and aristocrats, especially in the golden age of Hollywood, when many stars commissioned their own personal fragrances.

Creed fragrances for men and women are hand made, using the costly and time-intensive traditional infusion technique. Most of the modern perfume industry has abandoned infusion in favour of mechanized commercial techniques.

Oh, Ronda, I was just in Hawaii and I saw these beautiful fragrances. I nearly bought a bottle. Damn it, I regret not buying it now!!! Oh well, I will have to get some when I am over there in July.

My husbanad gave me the Silver Mountain Water for Christmas.
It has hints of Citrus, Tea, Blackcurrant, Musk and Ambergris. It's WONDERFUL!

Now I want to smell millésime fluerissimo. I read it was originally commissioned for Grace Kelly’s marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco.

'Love in White'...subtle and powerful at the same time. I do love Spring Flower as well, though.
