Creed Original Cologne


CREED Original Cologne

Elegant starched banded collar and cuffs, high-waisted striped trousers, suspenders, frock coats, vests, cravats, pumps, pocket watches, fobs, gloves, walking sticks and top hats were requisite—and of course no well-equipped late nineteenth century English gent would feel complete without a touch of something like the oh-so-crisp Royal Exclusives Collection Original Cologne.

It was an era ruled by the landed leisure elite and ultra-wealthy industrialists. Their households were as tidy as their tailored clothes and the world as they new it ran as assuredly as the British railway. A new continental awareness prevailed and elevated status was conveyed as much through riches as it was through a mastery of formal etiquette.

We are of course speaking of Victorian England which, as you may have guessed, is the perfect inspiration behind Creed’s Original Cologne, a snappy amalgam of floral, citrus, fruit, and clean white musk (amongst other masterfully chosen ingredients), presented—as befitting of such a refined scent—in an exceedingly smart hand blown etched Pochet glass bottle. Need we say this will look as good as it smells on your dressing table?

As one might expect, there is a limited supply of Creed Original Cologne and I urge you to secure a bottle for yourself post-haste!

    I adore Creed! They are known world-wide. Without a doubt, they are definately the true leaders in the fragrance industry. I had the opportunity of working at Creed for three years. This was such an awesome experience.

    Ah, the sweet smell of success! Creed is so aristocratic, as are you.

    This must be a hint for your upcoming birthday?

  4. Nick Zantop says:

    Dean, James seems to have a good supply….I think he means it as a hint for my birthday instead 😉

  5. James Andrew says:

    I wish I had some for both of you!

    I would like to take a bath in it…while drinking Cristal from a Saint Louis flute and eating Chocolate truffles from Maison au Chocolat, and listening to Lady Gaga -and looking out at the Mediterranean Sea…
