The House of Creed has created fragrances for over 260 years. Based in Paris, Creed makes many of its own essences using a classic infusion technique ensuring that its perfumes are of the highest quality and authenticity.

Whatever the season, this is a perfect scent for the brave and confident gentlemen – and a favourite fragrance for men for good reason.
‘Unique, elegant and poised’ – these are the words used to describe this fragrance by consumers. From the first note of perfume comes an overwhelming feeling of splendour and masculinity. With the main ingredient being brandy, it evokes a warm and spicy scent with an undertone of sweet vanilla. This scent can be worn all year round, but the woody notes would be particularly striking at a winter wedding.
A Mediterranean dream – Citrus B Riviera is every inch the perfect designation wedding fragrance. Think Italian lemon, Italian Mandarin, Orange blossom and White musk which evoke wedding abroad in a bottle. As a unisex fragrance, you could share this scent on your honeymoon too!
Those who know Tom Ford will smell his distinctive notes a mile away. Tom Ford Noir is an oriental, sensual fragrance that captures the dual facets of the Tom Ford man. Described as a cold weather type of scent – the spiciness, warmth and woody tones make it a perfect winter and fall fragrance.
Terre d’Hermes narrates the relationship between man and earth – his humble and harmonious dialogue with the elements of nature. This is a woody, spicy fragrance for men. The scent begins with the gaity of orange, the bitterness of grapefruit and the vivacity of pepper and fresh spices.
Invoking memories of blue skies and cool breezes, this refreshing eau de toilette by Coach is an invigorating scent for him and the perfect fresh fragrance for a groom getting married abroad.

The enigma of Creed strikes again, and we can’t get enough of it! This time we’re obsessing over Creed Viking – an alchemy of zingy citrus fruits, bergamot, lemon and mandarin make up its top notes. Its base of vetiver, sandalwood, cedar and patchouli give it a renewed determination and conquering spirit. This cologne for him and for her captures the reawakening from the darker winter months. At the first light of Spring, this is an invigorating blast of freshness.
