    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

    No interest in acqua Creeds for me, but I am sure they will be popular...

    I agree, especially as many of the more substantive classics are now discontinued.

    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.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    I fear Erwin's hand will create some more insulting shampoo disasters like "Original Cologne / Pure White Cologne".

    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.

    @30Roses: I'll look into it. Thanks!

    I concur. Fresh is nice, sure. But the heavier more masculine scents are way better (imho)

    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.

    I mentioned this line to the Creed rep at Neiman Marcus today. You'd have thought I had leprosy. She scoffed when I mentioned basenotes as where I had heard about this. She basically ridiculed our site. Ticked me off. She'd never heard of the new line.

    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."

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    Hmmm...my curiosity is piqued, but given that it's Creed, I'm slightly skeptical. Guess I'll have to take a wait and see attitude.
