What Does “Millésime” Mean?
Unlike the terms eau de toilette or eau de parfum which refer to the intensity of a scent, millésime is, according to Creed, “a mark of quality.” It indicates not only its strength—which is similar to that of an eau de parfum—but also that it’s been concocted from the year’s best harvests. The designation itself highlights the company’s point of pride in using natural ingredients to create distinguished perfumes.
The bright scent of Acqua Fiorentina best suits daytime wear in warm weather. Try spritzing it on before work on a spring day or perhaps while camping to remind you of the fallen civilization you’ve left behind.

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.
