Inspired by movement, Wind Flowers is the latest women's perfume from the House of Creed and makes a glorious gift this Christmas. Floral and fresh, this beautiful scent opens with sweet jasmine, wrapped around the zesty scent of Tunisian orange blossom, softened by a fresh and a fruity peach note and a powerful heart of delicate jasmine flower, tuberose petals and a soft rose extract.

If you’re looking to gift a discerning woman with a taste for the very finest things in life, then White Flowers is sure to leave her speechless with delight on Christmas morning. Part of the exquisite Les Royales Exclusives collection, this timeless and youthful fragrance is a divine, romantic masterpiece - fresh and luminous yet seductively charming, it evokes the serenity of both the morning dew and the moonlit evening.

The Beauty Lover

If your loved one is the kind of woman who knows the power of a pamper session, surprise her with lavish body care products, delicately scented to match her favourite Creed perfume.

Divinely nourishing, a Creed scented body oil is indulgent, sumptuous, and the perfect accompaniment to a gift of her favourite perfume.

It can be difficult, after all, he’s tried everything, been everywhere, and has an uncanny ability to find new ways to enjoy the world. Evoking the legendary spirit of the original adventurers – the Norsemen of Scandinavia – Creed’s Viking Duo Gift Set is perfectly suited to this inspirational breed of modern man, unafraid to make an impact, endlessly driven to explore.

The fragrances contained within this gift set are inspiringly dynamic – bold, masterful Viking with its spicy, exciting notes is ideal for evening or statement wear, and free-spirited Viking Cologne, with an invigorating freshness, works wonderfully for daily wear.

The Leather Explorer Collection 

Back for 2022, The House of Creed is delighted to present a unique Leather Explorer Collection developed in collaboration with Olivier Creed, inspired by years of heritage and craftsmanship. A continuation of the 2021 leather collection, the House of Creed has created seven exclusive leather products, using the finest Italian leather and this year, has been created in the traditional French navy hue, which is accompanied by a beautiful beige suede interior.

A true homage to the history of the brand which celebrates the past with a modern yet traditional design.

Inspired by his father’s oceanic travels to places like Japan in the early 1900s, Olivier Creed, looked to the design of the trunks that boarded the Empress of Canada from Vancouver to Kobe for the creation of this 2022 festive season. After seeing photographs of his father next to the stacked trunks and delicate vanity cases, Olivier knew this would be the perfect way to store some of Creed’s most treasured fragrances and create an exquisite Creed objet d’art.

Perfume Sleeves

For the festive season, offer the ultimate luxury gift with this hand-crafted Italian leather sleeve . Beautifully adorned with a French blue pattern featuring the Creed repeat branding, the bright blue and pop of yellow, to add a touch of modernity, mixed with the classic heritage feeling of the brand. A reference to the history of House of Creed, this sleeve is perfected with a magnetic clasp that allows you to carry your fragrance on your next voyage. Available in three formats to fit 50ml, 75ml and 100ml fragrances from the Heritage Collection, this makes a beautiful festive gift. Cherish this hand-crafted perfume sleeve to carry your most precious possessions everywhere with you or keep it as a beautiful objet d'art.

Available just in time for Christmas, we are now offering engraving on our bundled items. The perfect gift for your loved ones, you can now gift them an engraved fragrance encased in our leather sleeves to create a special keepsake.

Leather-Encased Scented Candles

No matter how much one travels, crossing over the threshold upon returning home will always elicit a sense of relief, comfort and relaxation. The memories of adventure remain vivid and treasured, but nothing compares to sinking back against those familiar cushions.

Inspired by Olivier Creed’s expeditions across the globe in search of the finest fragrance ingredients, Creed’s Birmanie Oud and Vanisia Candles are olfactory celebrations of exploration, specifically intended to be enjoyed from the comfort of the home. Encased in Italian leather holders of rich blue to add a finishing touch of opulent style, these candles become beautiful ornaments, enhancing their surroundings through aesthetics as well as scent.

Warm and rich, the Birmanie Oud candle scent is blend of tonka bean and sweet styrax that infuses the room with a relaxed yet mysterious aroma – deep, woody and perfect for creating a convivial atmosphere for cosy festive gatherings. Pillowy and dreamlike, the Vanisia candle scent blends clouds of exotic, buttery vanilla with warming, fragrant amber for a soft, comforting fragrance – ideal for an evening spent cosying up with loved ones.

A stunning gift for the house proud, homebodies or anyone who loves to curl up and relax in comfort, these candles also make a particularly thoughtful present for anyone who has recently moved home.
