CREED Viking Cologne

Creed Viking Cologne

This week The House of CREED Launched a brand new fragrance, CREED VIKING Cologne.

The new launch is the first extension into CREED’s Viking fragrance profile. The original Viking was launched four years ago. Encased in a vibrant red wrapped bottle and adorned with a long ship, the men’s fragrance invoked Iceland’s relentless volcanic landscape with a fruity floral profile of citrus accords. Now, for 2021, the luxury perfume house has followed with an ambitious sequel – the Creed Viking Cologne.

The new fragrance is UNISEX, encased in a spirited orange wrapping and adorned with the same iconic Viking ship. It is lighter, cooler and less dense than the original Viking. The formula combines notes of zingy citrus fruits like lemon and pink pepper, lavender, nutmeg, and rosemary. Which settle into a woody base of dry sandalwood, patchouli, and earthy vetvier.

To celebrate the launch CREED hosted a with a virtual concert named Valiant Sounds which showcased native Icelandic artists Junius, Gugusar, Logi Pedro and Young Karin.

Listeners were invited to watch, listen and receive a sample of the new fragrance.

CREED sent me an exclusive viewing pack which included Viking Cologne, Einstök Ölgerð Icelandic Beer, Snacks and a 66° North (Icelandic Clothing Company) Belt Bag- everything you need for a music festival!

As the concert began I set the mood with a spritz of Viking Cologne. Then cracked open a cold one, let the tunes fill the air and was wowed by the mystical landscapes of Iceland.

Now, THIS is the way to launch a fragrance! Fully immersed in the land that inspired it!

If you are looking for the perfect summer fragrance (and a great music festival) you have found it.  Give Viking Cologne a spritz and then head to CREED’s website to check out the concert.

House of CREED Opens New Boutique in Las Vegas

House of CREED Opens New Boutique in Las Vegas

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.

Stop in, check it out and give a few fragrances a spritz, you will fall in love!

House of CREED’s new boutique is located inside the Forum Shops near John Hardy.

The Best Fragrance for Sensitive Skin

Best Fragrance for Sensitive Skin

If you’re prone to allergies or have sensitive skin, finding a signature scent that doesn’t trigger a reaction or cause a rash to flare up can be quite the challenge.

If you get a headache or develop a skin rash after exposure to perfumes or colognes, you most likely have a fragrance sensitivity, which is a real bummer when you long to have a signature scent.

Allergic reactions to scents are actually labeled as “irritants,” rather than allergens (which would indicate the release of histamine internally) and skin sensitivity to fragrances can come from an infinite variety of ingredients BUT the most common irritant in fragrances is alcohol.

Before we started supercharging perfume with alcohol and artificial additives, bottling fragrances was a pretty simple art consisting of essential oils, botanicals, and water (hence eau de parfum, which translates to “perfumed water”).

With the growing concern of consumers for what they are putting in and on their bodies and an increased demand by clean-beauty devotees for getting back to basics with more natural ingredients, perfumed waters and water based fragrances are making a comeback.

Best Fragrance for Sensitive Skin

My favorite alcohol free water based fragrance was created by none other than the legendary House of CREED.

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.

CREED Pour Enfants or CREED For Kids was created without alcohol in order to be suitable for babies or children, boys and girls but it is also the perfect alternative for adults with skin sensitivities.

Housed in a luxe frosted glass bottle adorned with colorful doves this captivating fragrance makes me think of a blossoming orchard.  A great Spring/Summer Scent that also helps you work on your language skills, (One side of the bottle is in French and the other in English), LOL.

Best Fragrance for Sensitive Skin

The gentle fruity aroma includes notes of apple, rose, lemon, plum and grapefruit with apple leading the way.

Think of it as a fragrance that whispers instead of shouting- which I actually prefer! It is subtle in the most perfect way.

Fresh, clean and doesn’t overpower!
