If you are a regular reader of my blog you know how deep my love runs for fragrance brand House of CREED.
My love affair with the brand began a few years ago when I was introduced to Aventus.
It is a scent created for men but I am drawn to more masculine scents and don’t really pay attention to “his” and “hers”, I wear what I like.
Aventus is totally captivating and of course because it’s CREED there is a story behind it. Aventus, was inspired by the life of Napoleon Bonaparte. When creating the scent Oliver CREED sourced ingredients that had a connection to the emperor. He used birch of Louisiana, a state that was once ruled by Napoleon and blackcurrant from the Mediterranean island of Corsica – Napoleon’s place of birth. The scent opens slightly sweet and fresh with apple and pineapple that later develops into pleasantly woody notes with a hint of vanilla.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with the brand here is the Cliff Notes version:
The House of Creed is a seven-generation family of fine perfume makers. Their processes are age old and The House of Creed is the only fragrance house to rely on a 4,000-year old infusion technique to capture the highest concentration of natural essential oils.
It all began in 1760 when James Henry Creed began as a custom tailor and leather goods maker to the English Royal Court, The House of Creed turned perfumer in 1780 when King George III—enamored by a pair of Creed scented gloves—commissioned Creed’s first royal fragrance: a rich mix of mandarin, ambergris and sandalwood, christened Royal English Leather.
Now that you are all caught up, I have exciting news. CREED has relocated and reimagined their Las Vegas Boutique inside the Forum Shops in Las Vegas into an enchanting new fragrance wonderland which boasts a total of 1,381 square feet –the brand’s largest boutique in North America.
The new location is the first to house a private VIP room for top clients. Catering to global fragrance connoisseurs who love travel and appreciate artisanal scents, this new boutique immerses guests in the world of Creed with an open concept, exclusive product offerings available only at the boutique and is complete colorful, one-of-a-kind abstract paintings by Sixth Generation Master Perfumer Olivier Creed.
