Creed Aberdeen Lavander Spray for Women or Men
With the Acqua Originale Collection, master perfumer Olivier Creed composed a series of fragrances to recount his travels, using scent as the narrative. Aberdeen Lavander pays homage not just to a place, but a person—Queen Victoria, one of Creed’s earliest clients and a lover of the picturesque Scottish Highlands.
Top notes such as anise-flavored absinthe capture the expansiveness and mystery of the Highlands. After the opening, heart notes such as lavender and rose bloom into a flowery bouquet, paralleling how the Highlands’ valleys, mountains, and poet-dwelling caves bloom with hidden beauty. Base notes of patchouli and smoky leather evoke the region’s endurance, as well as deepen the fragrance’s character and complexity.

Since Creed opened in London in 1760, seven generations of Creed family perfumers have run the fragrance dynasty. Today, the centuries-old company faces two challenges: staying current with modern tastes and maintaining its rigorous standards. The trick is to trust Olivier Creed, the master perfumer at the helm. “When my father and I are creating a new fragrance, a process that can takes years, we wear only the fragrance we are creating. We wear it—and live in it—day by day,” Erwin Creed told KA Magazine. “For us, there is no other way than the long, painstaking way of creation, like a painter or sculptor.”
Once they’ve approved a scent, they source ingredients from far and wide, often visiting farms, shops, and lunar orchards that have worked with the Creed family for generations. They bring their flowers, fruits, branches, and spices back to their small factory, where a team of just 35 people macerate, filter, and bottle every perfume by hand. Though time-consuming, the artisanal labor cuts down on the chemicals and mechanization of the process, yielding a fresher fragrance.
