The House of Creed is known to only use the best ingredients. And because it only uses the best of each harvest, the Perfume House is at the mercy of Mother Nature. If a certain ingredient is not up to the Creed standard, Olivier Creed and his son Erwin would rather wait until the next harvest than use subpar ingredients in their fragrances which mean, sometimes, to stop producing a scent.
