    Default 5 new from Creed - 'Acqua Line'

    Short snippet on Fragrantica that Creed will be launching a new collection of five fragrances, apparently in more streamlined bottles: Cedre Blanc, Iris Tuberose, Vetiver Geranium, Asian Green Tea and Aberdeen Lavender.

    Edit:
    A bit more info, this time from Michael Edwards ‏@theperfumenose:
    "Cannes TaxFree 2: Creed’s new Acqua Originale collection: ASIAN GREEN TEA, CÈDRE BLANC. ABERDEEN LAVENDER, GERANIUM VETIVER, IRIS TUBÉREUSE"

    And also this form bwconfidential.com:
    "Creed also has a new collection in the pipeline for this year called Acqua Originale, which will replace the brand’s current EdT offer. The collection will include “eaux légères” and will launch with around three fragrances, with a potential of 10 in the long term."

    It's a poor picture, but they look a bit cheap. (Test post from Tapatalk).

    Kalli, I've seen these bottles before but I can't remember where, need better pics to figure it out. Looks more boring for sure!

    You are right! Very Shalimar in the cut of the glass.

    Yeah, I'm not digging the look of the bottles. I really like the current Creed bottles and caps. Has a regal feel to it.

    Sorry, very little info so far. Waiting for other sites to confirm the news, and maybe add more details.

    Don't like the bottles either. First thing I thought of was Shalimar, but they're also sort of similar to these Keiko Mecheri bottles..

    Bottle design aside, I'd like to sniff the Vetiver Geranium.

    Ditto. Asian Green Tea also sounds interesting. Wonder what the bottle size(s), price, and release date is.

    What... the... uhm... this makes no sense to me. Those bottles are pretty bad. Is Creed trying to do something similar to Bond with their more affordable I Love NY series? Creed's bottles are so distinctive. I have no clue why they'd do this. Asian Green Tea sounds interesting, but it doesn't sound very Creed. HHHhmmmmmmmmm...

    Bottle design of these is strange. Would have preferred that they kept the old design. Wonder what was behind the decision.

    The bottle change is strange. However, I am VERY interested in giving these a try. It is Creed after all - they gotta be good! Right? I hope...

    I will agree that the bottle design is strange, but it does look more ergonomic. I can't wait to try Asian Green Tea.

    If they're EDTs (as posted in the OP) maybe these bottles are designed to hold more to give more value/price. Not that Creed is into being economical, just a guess.

    Maybe I read it wrong, but the OP said that this new line will be replacing the current EDT's. I'm curious to see what the price is of this new line.

    I was making the assumption that new EDTs are replacing old EDTs. But you never know, I suppose.

    Some look interesting but I am not getting a good feeling about them. It looks more like a prive collection catered to women from the bottles.

    This makes me wonder how long ago Creed were planning this as part of their marketing. Putting up their prices on their other fragrances makes these new 'pared down' EdTs seem more economical at a similar price to their general prices at the start of the year?

    Cynical, moi?

    The bottles are terrible.
    I have a feeling these new EDT's won't be nearly as good as the old EDT's.

    Awful bottle design, somewhat interested in Asian Green Tea though...

    The bottles in the picture look like they would be for women's perfumes.
