The Story Of Silver Mountain Water
Created by Olivier Creed in 1995, this fresh, green fragrance emulates the glistening narrow rivers that flow through the snow-capped Swiss Alps, a bracing landscape in which Olivier Creed, a championship skier, finds for relaxation and renewal. A bestseller since its launch, this modern marine, green scent captures the purity of the mountains with its opaque white bottle hinting at the icy snow banks topped with a glistening cap.
A fresh, contemporary fragrance inspired by the exhilarating crispness of alpine air and the sparkling clear waters of mountain streams.
Behind The Scenes
The campaign, shot by Kevin Macintosh and directed by Victoria Gaiger and inspired to transform the icy freshness of the fragrance, was shot in the surreal and imaginary landscape of silver icebergs, whilst the styling of the model reflected the contemporary elements of the masterpiece that is Silver Mountain Water. Mist and ice helped create a metaphorical journey to the magical summit and captured the essence of crystal clear streams descending over frosted rock face, whilst retaining the comfort of a warm and plush jacket. Inspiration came from many sources from the great icebergs of the Arctic to the pioneering mountaineers of the past. Key elements of the House of Creed’s identity is the celebration of the outdoors and nature which play an important role in this campaign.
Silver Mountain Water Characteristics
A contemporary unisex fragrance, Silver Mountain Water perfectly balances crisp and sharp notes of bergamot and orange with sweet blackcurrant, warming tea and salty ozonic accord, drying down to a luxurious and charming musk base. Opening with bright citrus notes of bergamot, mandarin and neroli and unfolding into heart notes of green tea and a salty ozonic note, this exhilarating perfume also draws on the base of sandalwood and musks that imbues this energising unisex scent with an icy air of freshness. The combination results in a simultaneously calming and invigorating scent that will captivate for years.
