The Sweet Smell of Excess
Carleen Hawn, 10.11.99
NAPOLEON III WORE a scent that smelled like leather, and not just any old leather, either. Russian leather. Spain's Alfonso XIII wore a scent with a faint woody odor called Green Irish Tweed. Winston Churchill's personal perfume, dubbed Tabarome, smelled of tobacco. All these scents have one thing in common: They were made exclusively for their wearers by the House of Creed, which started doing this sort of thing for England's George III in 1760, and has kept on doing it straight through to such modern royalty as JFK and Marilyn Monroe.
If you regard most ordinary store-bought scents as nothing more than Brut by a fancier name, be advised: The House of Creed will infuse, say, the essence of hard disks, stale coffee and telephone wire into an exclusive perfume for any cyber-gazillionaire willing to shell out up to thirty grand and wait six months.
The deal is, Creed will brew up a batch of 10 liters. That's more perfume than anyone can wear in a lifetime, but you could hand out bottles to 300 friends. For five years, Creed promises not to sell the perfume to anyone else.
After that, your pool man can wear it--if he pays the $160 Creed charges for four ounces of Imperiale Millesime, the fragrance commissioned by Saudi King Faisal. It comes in a 22-karat gold-plated flask. All but two of Creed's 32 over-the-counter perfumes started as exclusives, including the Royal English Leather scent it made for George III.
