Memorable holiday gifts from The House of Creed
In Partnership with Creed
Gift a personal present that will extend well beyond the holidays with an expertly made (and exquisitely packaged) scent by luxury fragrance maker Creed.
Go bold with Viking, a woody, citrus scent for the adventurous modern man who will appreciate the perfect mingling of Calabrian bergamot and Sicilian lemon, followed by Bulgarian rose and peppermint, and concluded with Indian sandalwood, Haitian vetiver and Indian patchouli. Or take things in a more delicate direction via the intoxicating Love In White, a fresh and floral statement that fills the senses with Italian orange zest, Florentine iris, magnolia, Bulgarian rose and Tonkin rice before giving way to vanilla, ambergris and Mysore sandalwood.
Traditionalists who appreciate a tried-and-true favorite will adore Creed’s Green Irish Tweed—think lemon, Indian verbena and peppermint balanced by Florentine iris, sandalwood and ambergris, and all tied together with notes of violet. Like an impeccably tailored suit, this classic by Creed never goes out of style, worn for decades by the type of man who is equally at ease in the Irish countryside as he is at a society party.
For the king and queen on your shopping list, the very regal Aventus and Aventus for Her are can’t-go-wrong fragrances. His exudes strength and power, defined by bergamot, blackcurrant, apple and pineapple evolving into to birch harmonizing with patchouli and jasmine before arriving at musk, oakmoss, ambergris and vanilla. Inspired by history’s most powerful women, Aventus for Her is feminine and confident, boasting notes of Egyptian apple and Indonesian patchouli that reveal Bulgarian and Turkish roses, Indian sandalwood and musk before leaving a hint of sweet peach, cassis, lilac, amber and ylang ylang.
