Fragrance Care

  • What is the difference between Parfum, Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette?

    These terms reference the concentration of essential oils in a scent. Parfums or perfumes are the strongest strength with approximately 20-30% of essential oils. Eau de Parfum (EDP) represents midrange strength consisting of 10-15%, and Eau de Toilette (EDT) is the lightest strength containing the least amount of essential oils with a range of 3-8%. Currently, all Creed fragrances are eau de parfums (EDPs) and contain between
    10% and 40% essential oils, depending on the fragrance.

  • How do I make my fragrance last all day?

    The most significant influence on scent longevity is ensuring that skin is properly moisturized prior to applying the scent. Layering products such as body lotions or oils with the same scent will also increase the longevity and intensity of a scent.

  • Where should I apply my fragrance?

    We recommend applying your Creed fragrance to your pulse points. This includes each of your wrists and neck. We also recommend spraying the back of your neck so that you leave a scent trail behind you. It is recommended to apply the fragrance directly to the skin to allow the fragrance to blend with one’s chemistry as well as emit scent when warmed by the body. Do not rub the fragrance on skin or rub your wrists together, as this will alter how the fragrance develops.

  • Why has my Creed fragrance changed color?

    Some notes in our handcrafted fragrances can be photosensitive. It is possible they can change color over a long period of time, if they are exposed to direct light.

  • What is the shelf life of Creed Fragrances?

    Upon first spraying the scent, a fragrance generally has a life of 2-5 years, as long as it is kept away from UV light and heat, which are the most damaging elements to perfume. 

  • Where should I store my Creed fragrance?

    To maintain the quality of your Creed scents after purchase, we advise that they are stored away from daylight, heat and extreme temperature change, which are the greatest causes of perfume deterioration.

    The perfect environment for a Creed fragrance is a dark, cool space like a drawer, or on a shelf in a closet in a room with stable temperature. Do not store your fragrance in a bathroom or car.

  • What is an ancillary product?

    An ancillary product is typically a
    bodycare item that is scented to match its namesake fragrance and is used to layer and intensify the scent but is also excellent to wear on its own. Ancillaries are available in the form of lotions, shower gels, after-shave balms, deodorants, shaving soaps & bowls, body soaps and perfumed oils at The House of Creed.

  • Does Creed only use natural ingredients?

    Creed uses only the finest natural
    ingredients in its artisanal fragrances, but some ingredients are impossible to extract from the natural source, like raspberry for example. Also, as regulations on natural materials have increased, some are not available in their natural form. Creed uses the finest natural molecules (or synthetics as they are also called) to replicate these ingredients.
