This fall, The House of Creed introduces the masterfully crafted Viking, a fiery men’s fragrance that bottles the fearless spirit of boundless exploration for the modern man who goes against the grain. Sixth Generation Master Perfumer Olivier Creed created Viking and was inspired by the incredibly crafted longships, a centerpiece of the Viking Age and one of the greatest design feats of the ninth century. A symbol of voyage and undeniable perseverance, longships were carefully designed for the skilled seaman who embodied unbridled determination to conquer. Viking marks the brand’s first major men’s scent since the introduction of the cult best-selling Aventus in 2010.

The Creed Private Collection, which consists of five scents, was originally designed for five Hollywood legends during Hollywood's golden years. The collection also includes classic editions, which are fragrances that had long ago captured the attention and patronage of aristocrats all over the world.
Today Creed’s Private Collection perfumes are available to the public. Among its other fragrance lines, there is Creed Universal and Creed Private Collection Universal, which are unisex fragrances. For women a few scents to note are 2000 Fleurs as well as Fleurissimo, which was commissioned by Prince Rainer III for his new wife, Grace Kelly. One of the newest creations on the market is Irisia.
For men a mainstay is Original Vetiver and Silver Mountain Water, which was personally created by the current master perfumer and direct descendant, Olivier Henry Creed. Green Irish Tweed cologne is also known to be a favorite among Hollywood men.
All Creed fragrances are grouped into two categories: Millesime (more concentrated) and Eaux de Toilette (less concentrated). In upholding its past, the design house still guards its formulations with the utmost secrecy, uses the traditional method of infusion and refuses to use synthetic essences. The business remains in the control of the family.

Wow! Just wow! It makes me smile every time I wear it. It has a definite spicy vibe that is not overdone. Very well blended and works for all seasons in my view. I get great longevity and moderate projection with this one. It is not weak but it is also not super loud either. It is a gentleman’s fragrance.
