Did you ever wonder what makes a great man or woman great? Was he just born that way or is there an external force determining his greatness? Certainly greatness stems from multiple factors coming together in just the right way, but here at Lily Direct we like to think that scent is definitely one small factor that makes up that elusive greatness mixture. And when one perfume house has perfumed an extensive collection of history’s greatest names, and continues to perfume contemporary greats alike, you have to stop and ask yourself, is it something in the spritz?
The Creed perfume house has created a legacy of unrivaled scents, both commissioned and worn by a host of global royalty, politicians, movie stars and first ladies. It’s rumored that it all started with a bottle of ‘Royal English Leather,’ commissioned by King George III.
Today, over 200 years later, First Lady Michelle Obama has said she is a devoted fan of Creed perfumes. Over the last two decades and beyond a wealth of famous names— Winston Churchill, JFK, Frank Sinatra, Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, Madonna and Julia Roberts…just to name a few—have either commissioned or worn Creed scents.
The list of famous Creed wearers is seemingly never ending: In 1920, at the request of Winston Churchill, ‘Tabarome Millesime’ was created; a take on the original ‘Tabarome’ fragrance, Churchill’s version contains notes of tobacco.
JFK is said to have worn ‘Vetiver.’
‘Spring Flower’ is said to have been commissioned for Hollywood starlet Audrey Hepburn in 1951. Since King George III there have been a plethora of European royals said to have commissioned scents from the Creed perfume house.
Don’t worry too much if you are an ordinary person who cannot commission a personalized scent, Creed has plenty of exquisite scents on the market. Many of the scents that were originally commissioned are later available to the general public. You can find great deals on Creed scents such as ‘Original Vetiver’, ‘Love in White’ and many more right here on the Lily Direct website. With so many great names wearing Creed scents, isn’t it worth it to see if you can find success in a bottle?
