THE CREED CLASSICS

Art of Fragrance

With a name like Floralie, you can expect a flower-forward scent, and the fragrance is gloriously, unapologetically so. To wear it is like breathing in a freshly-cut bouquet. It’s simultaneously rich, delicate, fresh, and slightly dank thanks to a mix of deep, velvety Bulgarian rose, heady tuberose and lilac, along with a subtle hint of sunny marigold. All that lushness is then countered by a soft and warm base of zesty cedar, amber, and musk. Master Perfumer Olivier Creed’s goal was to celebrate flowers as art, and Floralie delivers.
Viking: The Commanding, Spicy Rose.
Viking proves that rose doesn’t have to be girly or traditional. The top notes are spicy and bright—thanks to pink peppercorn, Sicilian lemon, and Italian bergamot—and an attractive combo of Bulgarian rose and peppermint lends a cool, rich edge. Olivier Creed was inspired by Viking ships—and the courage, determination, and strength they symbolize—and their mighty vibe, which is further emphasized by the masculine foundation of vetiver, patchouli, sandalwood, and lavender, is translated to any who choose to don it.
Love in White: The Smooth and Delicate Rose.
There’s something about smelling Love in White that makes you feel totally at peace. It’s cashmere-soft, feminine, sophisticated, clean. Rose isn’t immediately detectable—the fragrance opens with luminous Italian orange zest—but as it unfolds you’ll pick up a mellow and addicting mixture of soothing iris, French daffodil, fresh magnolia, dewy Bulgarian rose, powdery rice and a yummy, creamy base of vanilla and sandalwood.
