Quite a long piece - so go for it Creed fans.
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?
Nice article. Thanks for the link!

Do ya think Mr Creed realises how much Luca Turin hates Love in White in particular? LOL!
(I'm a proud wearer of love in white)
Must buy Creed now.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."
Very interesting article, thank you for posting it.
Olivier Creed likes Old Spice.
Interesting article although I found Olivier's comments regarding the exclusivity of his brand and dedicated use of natural materials to be amusing.
Thanks for posting this, OP. Wouldn't have seen it otherwise!!
