    Default Interview with Olivier Creed in The Independent

    Quite a long piece - so go for it Creed fans.
    http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...t-8513595.html

    As is often the case, there is much rhapsodizing about the quality of the naturals used. All fine, except it creates the impression of 'all natural' fragrances - which, as Basenoters know, have a much muddier quality. Why not add that synthetics are an important part of the make-up, too?

    Do ya think Mr Creed realises how much Luca Turin hates Love in White in particular? LOL!

    In an industry with an unrivalled reputation for vacuous hype, the House of Creed has thrived on a different strategy: being, and remaining, magnificent. Creed fragrances have been worn by Winston Churchill, Frank Sinatra, Humphrey Bogart, Michael Jackson, Jackie Kennedy, Elton John, Pierce Brosnan, the Queen, Harrison Ford, both Elvises (Presley and Costello) and David Beckham, to name a few. Others on the roll of what Olivier Creed calls "my faithful" have included Prince Charles, Hugh Grant and Serge Gainsbourg. ("Spring Flower", created for Audrey Hepburn, is worn by Julia Roberts and Gwyneth Paltrow.)

    Madonna and Gérard Depardieu

    Michelle Obama is a regular customer," he says, when pressed. "But then so is Laura Bush."
    Must buy Creed now.

    Interesting article although I found Olivier's comments regarding the exclusivity of his brand and dedicated use of natural materials to be amusing.
