Sixth generation master perfumer Olivier Creed, along with his son Erwin, present Love In Black, a fragrance that blooms with wildflowers at dusk. Creed Love In Black evokes the enigmatic beauty of America's most intriguing First Lady of the 20th century: her dark, mysterious eyes behind black sunglasses, her wavelets of brunette hair, her trim shape in a black sheath. To create Love In Black, Mr. Creed blended ingredients from places loved by this well-traveled woman. Even the bottle is made with black sand like that in the Greek isles where she wed a legendary shipping tycoon.
