Floral Fragrances From The House of Creed

Floral Fragrances From The House of Creed

Whether experienced through a garden in full bloom, an exquisite gifted bouquet or a chance encounter out in the wild, flowers are one of the purest sensorial delights that the world has to offer.

We marvel at the beauty of a delicate petal, admire the brilliance of a colourful bloom, and above all else, delight in the scent of a flourishing flower. A true treasure of the natural world, flowers have played an important role throughout human history in medicine, art, fashion and, of course, perfumery. 

An Olfactive Symphony

From Bulgarian roses to Florentine irises and Parma violets to Moroccan jasmine, floral fragrances from across the globe sing together in perfect harmony, celebrating the world at its most beautiful. Each flower blooms with individuality, such as the sensual eroticism of jasmine, the honeyed warmth of tuberose, the seductive hypnotism of violet or the heady deliciousness of rose. Despite their individual qualities, floral scents come alive when combined. Just as an exquisite bouquet or a floral garden border brings together an array of flowers to maximise their impact, so do floral fragrances. Perhaps this is how flowers were always meant to be experienced – after all, a wildflower meadow in its natural state, bursting with bucolic floral abundance, has created variety all on its own.

Characteristics of Floral Fragrances

Taking many forms, from playful and sparkling to opulent and seductive, floral notes are best known for adding a feminine touch to perfume. Just as femininity comes in many shades, each bloom can have a different impact depending on the notes it accompanies. Jasmine, for example, can be an extraordinarily sensual scent, but when combined with juicy fruits and crisp citrus notes, it becomes energetic, youthful and spring-like. 

Floral fragrances can be further categorised to help the wearer to better understand the olfactive nuances of their perfume of choice. A Soft Floral has an optimistic, harmonious and playful accord, and a fruitiness combined with sweet flowers, often resting on a pillowy bed of musky notes. A Floral Oriental on the other hand is passionate and enticing, with warm, sensual ingredients that elevate the romantic floral heart. Different still is a Floral Fruity: a modern, charming blend that emboldens the wearer, amplifying confidence through a spirited, dynamic blend of freshly harvested citrus, exotic and orchard fruits, without tempering the femininity of the floral notes.

Not every floral note plays a starring role, however. Some of the most intoxicatingly masculine fragrances boast a floral note at their heart tying together spicy, green, crisp and woody notes like a ribbon around a gift. At times subtle – but never a wallflower – these delicate florals provide an olfactive foundation from which other ingredients can soar.

Aventus For Her

An unabashed celebration of femininity, Aventus For Her is an empowering perfume for women that inspires the wearer through a modern bouquet of florals, blended with fruity and citrus notes. Opening with a crisp, contemporary burst of green apple, bergamot, pink pepper and lemon, the floral fruitiness blossoms to create a stunningly fresh yet feminine heart with rose, lilac and ylang-ylang intertwined with luscious blackcurrant, pineapple and peach. Sensual and opulent notes of sandalwood, cedarwood, patchouli, musk and ambergris notes unite to create a fortifying base, reminding the wearer of her strength and power throughout the day.

Queen of Silk

Heavenly florals combine with a modern sensibility in Queen of Silk, the latest enchanting Floral Amber fragrance for women from The House of Creed. Inspired by coveted silk, this olfactive masterpiece is woven from ingredients that evoke the distant lands where this treasured fabric once journeyed. Seductive notes of Chinese osmanthus and modern tuberose intertwine with the exquisite depth of cedar, agarwood and the smouldering softness of Madagascan vanilla. This hypnotic blend gently embraces the skin with the same delicate touch of silk, leaving an enchanted trail of sensual allure that captivates the senses. 

Spring Flower

Capturing the flirtatious and playful side of modern femininity, Spring Flower is the embodiment of ‘pretty in pink’. Inspired by the jubilant atmosphere of springtime, its youthful yet sophisticated nature inspires optimism and confidence. The energetic opening notes of bergamot, grapefruit and lemon blend effortlessly into the succulent heart of apricot and peach, irresistibly interwoven with heady jasmine and sublime white flowers. Resting on a tranquil bed of ambergris notes, cedarwood and musk, every note in this timeless fragrance leaves the wearer lusting for more. 

Acqua Fiorentina

A citrus debut sets the scene of a hot summer’s day in this blooming women’s fragrance, whilst juicy notes of apple and greengage plum evoke a sun-kissed orchard laden with fruit. The rose nestled into the heart of Acqua Fiorentina creates a delicious floral sweetness, redolent of the aroma unique to sun-warmed fruit freshly plucked from the tree. This is a gentle, harmonious fragrance with a cedarwood and musk base that surrounds the wearer with warmth, peace and a lasting joy. 

Wind Flowers

Exude elegance with Wind Flowers, an exquisitely feminine floral perfume inspired by the whimsical fluidity of a dancer in motion. Classically soft florals from delicate jasmine to tuberose petals are wrapped around vibrant notes of orange blossom and creamy praline in a sensual tribute to modern femininity that beautifully captures both strength and grace. 

Love In White

Inspired by a drive through blossoming tree-lined streets with a fresh breeze in the air and the first delicate bouquet of spring in hand, Love In White is an exquisite, romantic declaration of love. This Eau de Parfum for women opens with luscious notes of orange zest, apple and apricot, before blooming into an unapologetically floral heart of narcissus, iris, jasmine, magnolia and rose. Elegant and iconic, the sensual base of musk and cedarwood creates a sophisticated dry-down that celebrates, love, spring, and new beginnings. 

Royal Princess Oud

Utterly captivating, Royal Princess Oud is a Woody Floral fragrance that is provocative, bold and empowering. Sparkling top notes of zesty bergamot, grapefruit, pink pepper, blackcurrant, pineapple and raspberry are instantly inspiring, whilst the richly elegant floral notes of iris, orris butter, jasmine and rose create a luxurious heart. Cedarwood and oud deliver a sensual, woody base perfectly suited to a glamorous woman who knows her own strength. 

White Flowers

Divinely beautiful White Flowers enchants all who encounter it. A cotton fresh, effortlessly mellow opening of green apple, violets and lemon makes way for a sublime floral heart of jasmine, geranium and rose, and a subtly rich, romantic base of musk, narcissus and cedarwood creates a flawless dry-down. Almost surreal in its dreaminess, this is the epitome of an elegant floral scent.
