If there ever was a fragrance that personifies the Hollywood glamour of the 1950’s, it is The House of Creed’s Spring Flower. Everything about the scent -- from its feminine and delicate composition to its vivid fuchsia bottle -- encompasses the era like nothing else. Even the flirty bow around its neck nods to a time in history that although much admired, has never been replicated.
This fruity/floral showstopper was privately commissioned in 1951. Masterminded by Sixth Generation Perfumer Olivier Creed, the scent managed to be as feminine as its bottle, but with an underlying sophistication. This complexity is to be expected. After all, Spring Flower’s composition and craftsmanship—peach, melon and apple on top; jasmine and rose in the center; and warm musk and ambergris on the bottom—results in a fragrance that more than lives up to the Creed legacy.
Spring Flower was released to the public in 1996. Eager fans were able to experience glamour-in-a-bottle and the ultimate feminine fragrance. (In fact, it’s a shining member of The House of Creed’s Heritage Collection). Thanks to Creed’s expert touch, traditionally delicate ingredients were rendered more complex. Fans noticed this mastery; some gravitate to the fragrance’s unexpected crispness, while others rave over its purity. It’s long been the signature scent for many, an appreciated gift and the quintessential warm-weather fragrance. In other words, it’s here to stay.
So next time you find yourself mesmerized by the impeccable glamour and mystique of the silver screen, channel that allure with Spring Flower.
