    Question Heard at the Saks counter: New Creed 'Acqua' Line

    Did a brief search and found nothing, so excuse me if this has already been repeated here on the forums.

    Creed will be releasing between 4 and 6 new perfumes at the same time sometime in late Spring 2013.

    The line has been designed by Erwin and is 'Acqua' inspired (which I don't know exactly what this means, but could possibly be along the lines of fresh/fruity/floral, I suppose). I was also told there would be a big release event (is this typical though? Probably not for individual releases, but for a new LINE, maybe so?)

    Like I said, I haven't found this information posted anywhere else yet, but I'm pretty sure it's not The Encore version of Fiorentina (since that's only one frag, not several, and it was designed by Olivier, not Erwin).

    Has anyone else heard about this?


    btw, I registered here back in 2004 and can't seem to remember what my original handle was. So pardon the 'noob' status - I've been lurking and reading Basenotes before they added female frags.

    Here are the people that registered in 2004 and later-- maybe one of the names will click?

    Dang, 4 to 6 at once?! Now Creed is copying Bond!

    If that's true, you'd think with the popularity of Aventus at least one of the new crop will have some common traits with it.

    This is awesome, thanks OP for the news. I've been actually waiting for someone to post here about upcoming Creed frags because I haven't heard much of a major buzz since Aventus.

    I was let down with the latest new release, Acqua Fiorentina Encore. Not that it's a bad scent (I haven't even smelled it), but I was really waiting for a new male fragrance release from Creed. Hopefully at least one of the 4-6 new fragrances would be masculine leaning.

    And yes, releasing 4-6 frags at once is quite a lot. Maybe it's a brand new line, like the Royal Exclusives.

    Most Creeds seem to lead on the aqua side already; Millesime Imperial, Erolfa, Silver Mountain Water, Jardin D'Almafi, Acqua Florentina, Royal Water.

    I would like to see them push the envelop and develop some heavier scents. Their line is full of fresh fragrances

    Although I like a good number of Creeds I agree that many of their more recent offerings have been on the lighter aqua side so this really doesn't shock me.

    Sounds interesting, but I'll also echo that many Creeds lean more on the lighter/short-lasting side and would have liked to see them add some heady fragrances. An Acqua version of Creeds will almost assuredly not help them in converting those who complain of the short durations, personally I just want them to smell amazing and maybe than I can justify buying more bottles.

    Well good. I'm glad someone could verify my original post. Thanks.

    Did he also tell you what CREED's plan was for Royal Oud?


    I was going to write what I found out, but decided to hold off for the time being until someone could verify the content of the original post.

    Back a few months ago, I remember seeing photos from a Creed event where this line was shown to the public for the first time. I'm assuming people got a chance to sample it. Very curious to see what the initial impressions are.

    Unfortunately, I have found the Creed SA's at Neimans not be be the brightest bulb on the planet. Creed keeps information very close to the vest. Not even the people at their own Boutique know much about the line, other than they know it is coming.

    I recently visited the Creed corner at the Printemps store in Paris and the Creed rep confirmed the announced release of an "Acqua" line.
    She said it was expected for spring / summer 2014. No more info...

    Apparently, they just debuted the new line officially at Exsense. The only report I've heard is "nice, but weak".



    From Cafleurbon: "I wandered into the Creed booth because I noticed some unfamiliar bottles. There is a new collection coming soon called Acqua Originale (Asian Green Tea, Cedre Blanche, Aberdeen Lavandar, Geranium Vetiver, and Iris Tuberose), which has a whole new look. I need to smell them again, because as the name suggests, the scents are quite light, and my nose was getting tired. They were promising on first sniff, though."

    My thoughts, creed is over rated to a high degree it's basically a few that do it for entire line itself, SMW, VIW, Vetiver etc. they say the company has been existent since 1700's (although no documentatioal evidence to support this) I would say with aventus being one it's heavy hitters they would be silly not market their fragrances based in of their most popular one which btw goes well with young and old.

    Creed is definitely over rated! It's also a cologne people like to say 'I payed this much for it' no doubt it has a few head turners and conversation started with a few of their scents but for their price range overall people only buy the ones they would truly want which seem to be the same half dozen over and over again!

    I'm very curious what kind of reaction the green tea scent gets from my wife and her friends. They are all total connoisseurs of green tea, and one of them is an instructor of tea ceremony.

    My wife will go snarky on green tea products at the drop of a hat, but the reality is that she buys them like crazy. Green tea ice cream and snacks are normal fare around here. In fragrance, tea, fruits, and rose are all very big for her. Creed has not wowed her with tea yet, but she loves Creed, so I'm looking forward to seeing how this one holds up against her nose.

    PS - Hey, there, LoveCologne - Welcome to Basenotes!

    Just ignore Creed's marketing - they were a luxury goods company back in the day, and that was mostly woven and leather goods. Whether or not they actually rejuvenated old formulas or created a backstory out of whole cloth doesn't really matter - the simple question is whether they smell great to you and others. D'Orsay does this, too - ask Primrose - she knows all the details on that one. Creed has nothing on D'Orsay in terms of prize-winning literature! Although Krigler may be the biggest kid on the block in terms of creative writing at this point! Marilyn Monroe wore an Angel spin-off, if you can believe their story with your nose!

    If people want to debate Creed marketing, they need to read up on all the old, locked threads first. No need to rehash all that stuff - water under the bridge!

    Great old article here, by the way: http://perfumedpolitics.blogspot.com...-pasts-of.html

    Notes and a breakdown of each scent is on Now Smell This now:

    Creed has launched Acqua Originale, a new collection of five fragrances for spring / summer 2014: Asian Green Tea, Vetiver Geranium, Aberdeen Lavander (it is spelled that way on the bottle), Cedre Blanc and Iris Tubereuse.

    Asian Green Tea ~ a green floral; "The Dawn envelops the lighty [sic] fruits and wakes the mandarine, limes, petitgrain and bergamot pulps with softness." With bergamot, lemon, mandarin, neroli, blackcurrant, heliotrope, rose, green tea, violet, amber, musk and sandalwood.

    Vetiver Geranium ~ a citrus floral; "We are behind the shadows of trees, wild roses and geranium are all around us, as an enchanting balm for a sweet evening." With bergamot, lemon, green apple, cinnamon, geranium, rose, amber, cedar, musk and patchouli.

    Aberdeen Lavander ~ a green floral; "When the East, its voluptuous patchouli leaves and its vetiver resin, come in contact with the West and its mauve lavender, its rosemary, iris/rose all mixed with its wormwood… for a perfect harmony." With wormwood, bergamot, lemon, rosemary, lavender, lily of the valley, rose, tuberose, leather, patchouli and vetiver.

    Cedre Blanc ~ a woody floral; "Jasmine and geraniums blend with the white cedra to creates a warm and free movement." With bergamot, cardamom, laurel, geranium, jasmine, lily of the valley, white cedar, sandalwood and vetiver.

    Iris Tubereuse ~ a white floral; "Made with royal notes such as lys and lily of the valley. We feel like lying on violet leaves, surrounded by orange and a slice of vanilla. Iris Tubéreuse makes us feel like we are in a garden, ready to live a beautiful story." With violet leaf, galbanum, orange, lily, tuberose, orange blossom, musk and vanilla.

    Creed Acqua Originale Asian Green Tea, Vetiver Geranium, Aberdeen Lavander, Cedre Blanc and Iris Tubereuse can be found now at Nose in France, 100 ml Eau de Parfum, €149.

    am i missing something? why is it called an "Acqua line" if they are all described as FLORALS??? i was expecting (and hoping) that it would be aquatic-based scents, much like Acqua di Parma's Blu Mediterraneo line.

    for those wondering about price, they are priced low on purpose. to be more "accessible" to a wider audience.

    too bad they are all feminine. the sausage king is itching for a new Creed....

    Floral fragrances can still be aquatic. And I'd smell them first before you claim that they're all feminine. I have a feeling they'll be mostly unisex.

    That "Asian Green Tea, & Vetiver Geranium" sounds like a home run! Im definitely a buyer after reading the notes on these two:

    Asian Green Tea ~ a green floral; "The Dawn envelops the lighty [sic] fruits and wakes the mandarine, limes, petitgrain and bergamot pulps with softness." With bergamot, lemon, mandarin, neroli, blackcurrant, heliotrope, rose, green tea, violet, amber, musk and sandalwood.

    I corresponded with an English gentleman who was able to get his hands on a preview in April. He told me that Asian Green Tea & Aberdeen Lavander are the most masculine (he likened the Aberdeen to Caron pour un homme). Iris Tubereuse was the least. Kinda gives me hope.

    Why does Creed need another masculine, vanilla lavender? They already have the wonderful Royal Scottish Lavender. Vetiver Geranium sounds good, but I doubt Creed sprung for the raw materials to make it work. I take that back because of the green apple.

    According to the "masculinity-femininity" gauge at the site below, only one of the 5 is even considered unisex, and that's the Aberdeen Lavander. All the others are rated feminine.

    That goes directly against what a Creed Boutique salesman told me. I was told they are all considered unisex except Iris Tubereuse.

    Maybe these feminine bottles make sense now.

    Thanks for the heads up. The prices at Essenza are much higher than nose.fr (195 EUR vs 149 EUR). Wonder what the price will be in the US.

    Actually it comes to 163 Euros/ 100ml after VAT is taken off shipped which is a little better. My guess is that the figure quoted on the French site doesn't include shipping, but not sure.
