    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."

    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.

    Default Re: 5 new from Creed

    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.

  25. #25

    Default Re: 5 new from Creed

    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?

    This is clearly why Creed phased out a bunch of their old gray-cap EDTs. Probably a good business move, even though I loved quite a few of them.

    I'm curious if Mr. Reasonable thinks these will penetrate the Asian market. That sounds like half the intent. Otherwise, they seem like something along the lines of "Creed does Aqua Allegoria". Looking forward to sniffing them.

    Those bottles look terrible! Vetiver Geranium might be interesting, the others sound kind of boring to me. In my experience, drinking Green Tea is more exciting than smelling it in perfume form (Durbano's Jade, Au the Vert, etc.).

    Cedre blanc? Sounds like something we've smelled many times before. But we'll see!

    I agree with the awful bottles...there are a couple that sound interesting, but it sounds like most of them will be a little more feminine than I like. I'm interesting in seeing either way.

    I am a huge fan of Creed's "grey caps." This new line looks like an ambitious attempt to bring the whole idea into the 21st century. Best of luck to Creed. The grey caps are a tough act to follow.

    The Creedification of Creed?

    The distribution here is very limited - a couple of counters with an edited take on the line, basically the 'pop' ones. If they turn up I look forward to checking them out and we'll see if they click with the local market - HK is quite a good barometer as plenty of people from around the region come here to do their shopping due to the tax free status - some, (not all), stuff is cheaper than other ports.
