Creed is a Paris-based perfume house, which has boutiques in Paris, New York City, Dubai Mall, and Kuwait in addition to high end retailers across the world. The house creates its perfumes in-house by two perfumers: a father and his son.
James Henry Creed founded the House of Creed in London in 1760 as a tailoring establishment. It rose to fame in the mid 19th century under Henry Creed as tailors and habit makers for the fashionable dandy Count d’Orsay, Queen Victoria, and Empress Eugénie, who issued the firm of Creed & Cumberland a Royal Warrant for tailoring articles. Olivier Creed’s first named fragrance was a traditional eau de cologne with matching aftershave. Its release date is unknown, although bottles are still in circulation.
Throughout the years, Creed has created perfumes exclusively for celebrities and well-known political figures. Creed claims that Tabarome Millesime “was commissioned by a legendary British statesman who loved fine brandy and highest quality cigars” (presumably Winston Churchill). Also, Creed’s Vetiver was created for “one of America’s leading families, a political dynasty now known worldwide for its energy, vigor, and impeccable style” (presumably the Kennedy family).
