Creed’s new fragrance, Millésime 1849 is the most exclusive perfume in the world.
This superb rare limited 75ml Millésime edition has been specially created by Olivier Creed for the world’s most luxurious and famous store. The name celebrates the establishment of Harrods in the year 1849 at 105 Brompton Road – Knightsbridge, while the fragrance defines the legendary Creed style, interpreting it at its most exuberant and bewitching.
‘Millésime 1849‘ will be launched in the magnificent surroundings of the newly restored and refurbished Grade 2 listed Harrods Perfumery Hall, superbly set off by its elegant Lalique panels and Italian black marble furnishings.
To be enjoyed and treasured by both ladies and gentlemen, ‘Millésime 1849” is a rich sweet aromatic fragrance which evokes the Imperial epoch which inspires its name, as well as the glorious reign of Victoria, one of Creed’s most famous customers and patrons. The spirit of The Great Exhibition of 1851, that celebration of the world’s arts and culture held in Hyde Park a stone’s throw from Harrods was marked by the same idealism, craftsmanship and sense of style which characterises “Millésime 1849”.
The leisured, opulent and assured style is perfectly suited to the ambience of a store which has entranced shoppers for nearly two centuries. Both Creed and Harrods share many qualities: perfectionism, tradition, a dedication to their clientele and an unrivalled proud heritage which can be measured in centuries. When Charles Henry Harrod moved to Knightsbridge, Creed was already a household name: now two great institutions combine to bring you a perfume destined to become an assured future classic and international treasure.
Warm confident and generous, ‘1849’begins with sparkling magnetic citric top notes of Calabrian bergamot which reveal a sumptuous ample heart of jasmine, patchouli, aromatic cedar and ylang ylang. The tenacious base features sensuous Bourbon vanilla, precious oud, sandalwood and musk.
