and I find it SO coincidental that the Creed-haters who doubt the company's history are deafeningly silent.
As CREED celebrates its 250th year, a review of its archives reveals letters and orders from royalty, statesmen, First Ladies, champion athletes, world famous artists, legendary business chiefs, headliners and other VIPs. Among these treasures are CREED’s Royal Warrants of Appointment, papers issued by kings or queens when they named CREED their official fragrance supplier. An example is CREED’s royal warrant from Queen Maria Cristina of Spain, the great niece of Marie Antoinette of France.
Queen Maria Cristina aspired to make a style statement like her famous French relative (but without sparking a revolution). The Spanish queen appointed CREED her perfumer on June 25, 1885, knowing that CREED, then more than 100 years old, was a choice at once elegant and popular across Europe.
Two of CREED’s creations for Maria Cristina are still available to our clients today. Vanisia, a blend of vanilla, rose, sandalwood and jasmine, is a true accoutrement of monarchy. CREED’s Royal Delight is an endearing blend of tangerine, bergamot, jasmine, violet and leather
