Choosing Your Best Creed Perfume - A Guide
If you have set your mind to gift yourself or your loved one with a Creed perfume, you have a treasure to hunt from. Creed is a niche perfume house and has a history of making luxe fragrances for royalties, celebrities, and people of fine taste.
In order to find the most suitable Creed fragrance for your purchase, here are a few things you need to determine beforehand.
Not every perfume is for every occasion. While we like to wear some perfumes every day, usually making them our signature scent or our casual go-to’s, we reserve some fragrances for special occasions. So when you are buying a Creed fragrance which will typically cost you a bit expensively, you need to make sure what occasion you are buying it for.
Is it for a wedding, formal events, or if you are looking for a signature scent?
For example, Creed Fleurissmo is a great womanly fragrance for weddings while Creed Spring Flower is ideal to pull on formal events. Creed Aventus for him can be easily made a signature scent and can equally fit for occasions of Gala and award ceremonies.
One can notice that Creed has a variety of luxury perfumes. The perfume house can easily provide us a fragrance that fits our special occasion’s needs. We sure don’t want to smell heavily floral in the office because such a fragrance is for weddings and formal wear, so keep yourself clear on what you want and Creed will get it to you.
Seasons play an important role in how your perfume is projected. Apart from seasons, one should also think of what hour of the day is the perfume being bought for.
Floral, sweet, and fruity fragrances can fit for the summer season while in winter they can be cloying. Oriental perfumes can be cozy in winters but heady in summers.
Here’s how you should select your perfumes season vise.
Summer fits for Floral perfumes
Spring fits for Refreshing perfumes
Fall fits for Woody perfumes
Winter fits for Oriental perfumes
As for the time, daytime fragrances tend to be crisp, fresh, and light while evening and nighttime perfumes can be denser, aromatic, and sweet. Look for oceany, lightly floral, and lovely scents for daytime and fragrances with tobacco, vanilla, sandalwood, etc for nighttime.
Scent Tolerance level:
Everybody knows that Creed formulates luxury perfumes that naturally tend to be a bit heavy and whelming. They are of course equally fresh, pleasant, and addictive but for someone who has a low scent tolerance level, trying a sample before investing in a bottle will always be a good idea.
The Bottom Line:
Creed uses the highest quality ingredients for its perfumery. Each of their fragrance formulations smells rich and elegant, without overwhelming senses. If you want a boost in confidence and a scent that enchants crowds, choosing Creed will never disappoint you.
