How are these exquisite Creed perfumes crafted?

The House of Creed has created a legacy of unrivalled scents treasured by perfume connoisseurs and all admirers of quality, style and panache.

Over the centuries, the Creed family has produced well over 200 exceptional perfumes all testifying to a unique creative spirit that has been passed, together with a keen inherited nose, from father to son through seven generations.

Today, Olivier Creed, “Créateur Parfumeur” and a direct descendant of James Henry Creed, continues this timeless and hand passed tradition. Accompanied by his son Erwin, Olivier travels vastly to source, research, inspect and commission the finest ingredients from;

  • Purest Rose Essences from Bulgaria, Turkey & Morocco
  • Italian Jasmine
  • Tuberose from India
  • Haitian Vetiver
  • Bourbon Vanilla
  • Rose from Bulgaria
  • Florentine iris
  • Calabrian Bergamot
  • Parma Violets

These are just a few of the innumerable treasures in the Creed laboratory. They are all ingredients that have been used for many centuries, even in millennia. 

Creed manufactures many of its perfumes using a traditional input technique – a process now relinquished as being too costly to sustain by other mainstream Brands in the modern perfume industry, but it enables Creed to maintain the superior quality and authenticity of its fragrances.

The raw ingredients and the resultant perfume are still weighed out, mixed, and macerated by hand. The process is painstaking, laborious, labour-intensive but Creed is driven by artistry and perfection, not by commercial priorities

The unique nature of Creed

There are no two Creed perfumes alike. Each bottle of perfume that Creed creates has its own unique story, character, and vibrance.

Fragrances that Creed makes are attributed with a cool, warm, juicy, aromatic, floral, spicy and a sweet smell. Only a single perfume may showcase these scents and this is why Creed is very unique when compared to other perfume brands.

Who Wears Creed Aventus?

The brand's story commenced with a pair of fragrant gloves that were sent to George III by the then London tailoring company. Queen Victoria - George III's granddaughter - appointed Creed as an official supplier to the Royal Household.

Then, in 1854, under the patronage of Napoleon III and his Empress, Eugénie, the stylish leader of European fashion, the House of Creed moved its headquarters to Paris. Victoria had endorsed Creed only too well to her fellow Sovereigns.

Today, it's regal fragrances have since captured the senses of arguably the king of British menswear, David Beckham, who (as well as his own products) is known to wear and be a big fan of Creed perfumes.

Also, you should know that Creed perfumes were not available to the public till the late 1970s.

This means that from 1760 to 1970, Creed perfumes were only relished by nobles and aristocrats living in Europe. Simply put, Creed fragrances were exclusive for the wealthy in the past and those in our present.

How best to apply it

It's recommended to apply your Creed fragrance on each of your wrists and to each side of your neck. To enhance the coverage, we recommend spraying the back of your neck so that you leave a fabulous scent trail behind you.
