One of the most important creations of Henry Creed II, Jasmin Imperatrice Eugenie was commissioned by Emperor Napoleon III for his wife, Empress Eugenie, who desired a fragrance of oriental charm.
Eugenie was the powerful ruler who, in 1854, urged the House of Creed to move to Paris from London to serve her daily. Although, up to that time, the House of Creed had been based in London for nearly 100 years, Creed granted the royal request and moved. Since then, the House of Creed's legendary boutique has been in the same prestigious Paris location selected by Empress Eugenie.
