The CREED royal fragrance house of Paris offers the public the treasured and classic Windsor, created in 1936 for King Edward VIII of England from ingredients grown in the British Empire.
This collectible fragrance is presented exclusively in an 8.4 oz. hand-blown Pochet glass decanter with cut glass stopper.
Edward made headlines when he quit the throne to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. He wore Windsor as king and later when he and his wife began a new life in Paris as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, superstars of international society.
Windsor is as subtle as the Duke of Windsor's hand-tailored suits, shirts and ties, following his philosophy, "Royalty need not shout".
Windsor is a tour of the British Empire Edward once ruled. Its top note is British gin, Jamaican lime and a touch of Scottish highland pine.
"Duke of Windsor" roses, those he preferred in his garden, the fragrant Nuits de Young variety.
Bahamian orange, Canadian cedar and a dab of Australian eucalyptus.
Founded in 1760 and passed from father to son, Creed is the world's only privately held luxury fragrance dynasty. Based in Paris, the company today is led by Olivier Creed, a sixth-generation master perfumer. Creed is famous for unrelenting high standards when it comes to fragrance creation.. Mr. Creed travels the globe searching for the purest essences to compose his masterpieces. Using the infusion technique (which has been abandoned by the modern industry), Creed weighs, mixes, macerates, and filters everything by hand. They also use the highest percentage of natural components in the prestigious French perfume industry.
