    Default CREED 250th Anniversary fragrance

    ... is coming out soon.

    Nobody knows anything about it. No word on if it's a woman's perfume or a man's cologne or unisex. No word on price.

    Only concrete detail is that it will only be available in a 250ml flacon.

    This is NOT part of the Royal Exclusive line.

    it is mentioned in their "blog" on their website:

    "Erwin CREED will visit the U.S. again this year from Paris, meeting clients and signing bottles at select Neiman Marcus stores across America and at Saks Fifth Avenue Dadeland in Florida.

    Mr. CREED will have more information at that time about a new, unique, commemorative CREED offering, a capstone for the spectacular anniversary year."

    The Creed Boutique confirmed this recently.

    I will gladly cease mocking Creed, just as soon as they quit giving new and inviting reasons to do it. 250 years of tailoring, 30 of perfume. That last batch of "Royal Warrants" were even better than the last; one that calls them tailors (surprise) and two that are entirely illegible. Bravo!

    I dunno, unless they are claiming that they made scents for 250 years, why bag on them? Abercrombie and Fitch celebrate their long existence as well but I don't see people bagging on the new scents lol.

    Who cares if it was 10 or 100 years if it smells good?

    I like Mustangs AND Ferrari's both btw! bag on that!! darn haters

    If you are talking about my "250 years of what?" post... it was a little joke, not meant to bash or hate. Sorry if you took offense.

    Many of us like several of their scents but find their inflated "history" to be kind of funny. Poking a little fun at that isn't necessarily bashing or hating. I poke fun at loved ones all the time for silly things they say, and vise verse. Also, as long as no one is breaking any rules, can't they post what they want? You could just as easily ignore the posts you don't like as well.

    Most of the posts I find on the internet with Commemorative in them for creed all show up as Windsor being the surprise 250th scent as in the one here:

    For Creed’s 250th anniversary, which coincides with the planned opening of the New York store, the perfumer is releasing a commemorative fragrance from its archives. The 1936 creation, Windsor, will be available in limited edition leather wrapped, 1.7 oz. bottles for $405, and 8.4 oz. flacons numbered and signed by perfumer Olivier Creed, for $605. Windsor was originally created for the King Edward VIII (the Duke of Windsor), with ingredients from the British Empire. The worldly notes of Windsor consist of British gin, Jamaican lime, and Scottish highland pine top notes; a middle note of Duke of Windsor roses; and bottom notes of Bahamian orange, Canadian cedar, and Australian eucalyptus. Sounds like such a delectable scent, yet I would be still be hesitant to even open such a collectible item.

    If there is more to come I have no idea I don't see much else about that.

    I have no doubt there will be another fragrance coming out here in a little while from Creed seeing as in 30 years they are probably 50 scents in already!

    I am no Creed historian btw and I really have no idea how long they have been making clothes/perfume but with statements like the following I would think they had been making scents for much longer than 30 years. If they have NOT then I can see people poking fun I guess. You have to admit that sure sounds like they are saying that they made perfumes for these people in the 1800's at least.

    A glamorous royal warrant in CREED’s 250-year archive came from Empress Elisabeth (“Sisi”) and her husband, Emperor Franz-Josef, a power couple who united Austria and Hungary into an empire they ruled jointly in the 1800′s. Throughout her long and eventful reign, Empress Sisi riveted the public with her dramatic, incomparable beauty and style.

    Fine fragrance was, of course, part of her unique presence. For her, CREED made the floral masterpiece Fantasia de Fleurs, still available today.

    For her husband, the emperor, CREED made Santal Imperial, a masculine statement in finest sandalwood still offered to CREED’s discerning clients.

    I actually like the new releases from Creed including Aventus, Windsor, and Spice and Woods. My only disappointment is the high price and only selling some of them in 8.4 oz flacons. My other disappointment is discontinuing most of the Private Collection.
    I understand some of the Creed bashing, but it gets old. I like a lot of Creed fragrances, but I also like many other fragrances that are very different from what Creed makes.

    Yes, there is a lot of controversy with all that. You can do a search on this topic and find a lot of opinions on both sides of the argument; That's as far as I want to go into the conversation because people get very upset if you question the validity of Creed's claims and it can get very, very nasty; something I have no desire to be in the middle of.

    i don't care if you or anyone doesn't believe in CREED, or think they are responsible for WWII. but do the same trite comments/jokes have to be made in every freakin thread about CREED?!?

    in fact, I believe there is a whole thread dedicated to what a fraud CREED is as a company. why don't Zizadanes and Rioni and everyone go in there and have a Creed-sux-a-thon?

    i also find it a bit disingenuous for you to come in here, make a snarky comment about their history, then act shocked that Creed threads end up to be "very nasty". hmmmm.... why do you think that might be?!?

    I think it's perfectly valid for all points of view to be allowed to be posted in all threads in these forums. Creed forums are not open only to certain people on the boards. I like Creed. Some of their scents are absolutely gorgeous. I'm not a sycophant, however. Questioning their history claims is not being snarky or disingenuous, nor does it mean I dislike the company or the fragrances. If there was ever a place to question the history of the company, a thread on the 250th anniversary fragrance seems quite appropriate. I'm also anything but "shocked" that you are so upset that I even brought up the topic in the first place. But I just don't want to belabor the topic, which was why I said that I didn't want to get into any more about it on this thread; that's also why I recommended he use the search function to investigate this topic further if he was interested in delving deeper into the different sides of the argument. Hopefully that clears things up, and negates your suspicions that I had nefarious intentions.

    As explained by our very own The Good Life in a blog posting that surely gives Creed's marketing department a collective seizure when anyone reads it. Basically, yes, they used to make good clothes for a very long time, that's where the warrants come from. But there's no mention of them ever making fragrance until the 70s and it's the same general family but not the same company; look closely at their pre-1860 warrants and you'll notice they are given to "Creed and Cumberland" (which closed in 1860). Don't believe me? Look at their blog. Whoops, it's the only one you can't read! Have a closer look (they used to put this one from Napoleon on their packaging, still might) But don't worry, the good folks at Creed deny everything. It was a fun historical mystery but they should stick to selling perfume on merit alone (which some of them certainly have) and not historical fabrication.

    really? well i think it's appropriate to stick to the subject as described in the title and first post.

    i did not create this thread to discuss CREED's history or lackthereof. as I said, there is already a thread dedicated to laughing at CREED's obvious forgery of origin and bask in the superiority you feel while doing it.

    Thank you, nsamadi. I initially thought this (100 ml for $1,500.00) was a joke, but obviously it was not.

    Read carefully, this article confirms that, under "new management," this perfume house becomes more and more another -- greedy, snobbish, to-hell-with-quality-and-faithful-clientele -- cynical racket meant to serve exclusively African dictators, Russian mafiosi and assorted figures.

    One blatant lie in the article: Creed cannot anymore boast of using more than 50% natural elements in all their perfumes. Tellingly so, in old articles they used to claim the highest percentage of natural elements among commercial perfume brands. Now they've reduced their claims... but even the 50% mark is not truthfully being met by Aventus and other recent Creed creations. While I trust people like Dullah more than I trust myself when it comes to the separation and analysis of single fragrant notes, I can assert rather confidently that both new Creeds and newly re-formulated "old" Creeds go the synthetic way to an increasing, upsetting, and - given the brand's claims - deeply hypocritical degree.

    For shame.

    and the '250yrs of what' comment had me literally LOL

    single handedly owning this thread


    i too would like some discussion into the validity of Creed claims. I have my favs, MI, Orig Vetiver, Royal Water, GIT but seriously have a hard time overpaying for Penhaligon quality splashes. The thing that did it for me was Sublime Vanille - absolutely pitiful scent not worthy of the flacon overprice hype. No substance. Like discovering there is no Santa Claus, I'm starting to cast serious doubt upon Creed.

    Yes, the article is interesting. Particularly the sale figures and the statement that Creed distribution in the US began about 15 years ago.

Especially since Sublime Vanille, Spice and Wood, Windsor 2, and Aventus were not up to par at all qualitatively or compositionally with the Eaux De Toillette line or the Millesime Line. I deeply suspect either a new perfumer or Erwin himself is really responsible for the seemingly upcoming demise of this house as we know it. Someone spill the beans some more about this "New Management"

    And just for everyone to know:

    Creed sprayers usually spray heavy, taking around 8 sorays to dispense 1ml of juice...that means the per spray cost for this 100ml presentation:

    ~$1.80 PER SPRAY

    $15 per ml.

    nonsense. f#@k them

    Agree with Dullah. It may actually be pure perfume though, which would make it seem a bit less outrageous. albeit still outrageous.
