The Best Fragrances for Summer
For centuries, Eau de Cologne fragrances have been celebrated for their revivifying freshness with bright citrus and subtle herbal notes that immediately invigorate and uplift. This may sound like an Eau de Cologne would be the perfect choice for the summertime, but as a result of its lightness, it can dry down to a very faint finish that requires frequent top-ups. Richer fragrances have a higher concentration of stronger base notes, making them last far longer on the skin. Eliminating any compromise, Oliver Creed has encapsulated the fresh spirit of an Eau de Cologne, and elevated it into a luxuriously rich, long-lasting Eau de Parfum, available in three very different, yet equally sublime, Cologne-inspired scents. Each bursting with invigorating citrus fruits, these three fragrances for men and women boast the same Millesime quality found within each bottle from The House of Creed collection.

A rebellious twist on the iconic, hypnotically aromatic Aventus, this fragrance for him is perfectly suited to the urban-spirited modern man. Aventus Cologne has a fresh, vigorous allure that makes it the ideal daytime scent for summer. Uplifting the wearer with a fruity opening burst of ginger, mandarin and pink peppercorn, this addictive scent thrills with a sumptuously green heart of vetiver, patchouli and sandalwood. Setting Aventus Cologne apart from the traditional Eau de Cologne is its long-lasting heady base ñ a leathery, woody blend of birch, musk, tonka bean and styrax that adds a layer of expressive summertime warmth that will carry you through the day and into a balmy summers evening.
The latest addition to The House of Creed, Viking Cologne encapsulates the spirit of a summer adventure. This bold, fresh unisex perfume is inspired by the wild beauty of the Norwegian fjords and the alluring mystery of the daring explorer. A fresh twist on the masterful and spicy Viking fragrance, this invigorating scent opens with zesty notes of bergamot, lemon, mandarin and lightly spiced pink pepper. Heady notes of lavender, nutmeg, rosemary, geranium and sage intertwine at the heart of this scent to entice and excite, while the woody base of sandalwood, frankincense, patchouli, cedarwood and vetiver create an energising, long-lasting dry down. This free-spirited, effusive fragrance will inspire a thirst for daring exploits and thrilling experiences this summer.
