Thread: Erolfa name origin
I was just sampling Creed's Erolfa and was wondering if anyone knew the origin of the name. It sounds like it could be a woman's name or a place name - is there a story behind it?
I looked on Google, but all the references seem to point back to bottles of Erolfa on sale...
I'm guessing that the kids were both very sweet and that the wife was kind of salty.

From the Creed Boutique website:
CREED family memories of happy times sailing on the Mediterranean inspired the nautical fragrance Erolfa -- and prompted Olivier CREED, sixth-generation master perfumer, to name this universal scent for his family:
ER stands for Erwin CREED, only son of Olivier CREED. Erwin is the seventh generation and future head of the House of CREED.
OL stands for Olivia, Mr. CREED’s only daughter and a talented visual artist who works for the company.
FA stand for Fabienne, Erwin’s and Olivia’s mother.
Off topic: being a fan of Guerlain, I am wondering an analogous name for the new-to-come scent commented by Mr. Guerlain in his last post. It would be like this:
First generation: Pierre François Pascal
Second generation: Aimé and Gabriel
Third generation: Jacques and Pierre
Fourth generation: Jean Paul
So it would be... PIAIGAJAPIEJE. No, not euphonic at all. Let's see... AIJAJE, GAIJAPI (in Argentina this would be a really really bad name), JEPAJAPI (same effect)... sorry, I just give up, this doesn't work.
LVMH better stick to traditional poetic names.
