Creed Royal Ceylan
With limited-edition Royal Ceylan, master perfumer Olivier Creed whisks us to Ceylan, a blossom of an island in the swaying tide of the Indian Sea. There the earth's most diverse flowers thrive as they did 2,000 years ago when kings and queens ruled Ceylan from palaces made of flowering vines. At the heart of Creed Royal Ceylan is the island's wild lotus flower.
Rich with meaning, the lotus flower is known for its power to induce romance. In five ancient temples of Ceylan, lotus drawings decorate the walls, a sign of the flower's honor and value. In Ceylan's palaces, lotus flowers live in crystal waters, a symbol of good luck.
In 1953, the Ceylan lotus flower was stitched in the coronation gown of Queen Elizabeth, who as Great Britain's monarch was also the modern Queen of Ceylan. Today, the lotus flower is known worldwide as a symbol of greatest calm. Creed Royal Ceylan has since been vaulted by the House of Creed.
Ceylan's five ancient temples wrapped with flowering vines of myriad colors inspired Mr. Creed to create five special 1.7-ounce leather-wrapped shatterproof bottles (or atomizers) for Creed Royal Ceylan. Rich color variations and patterns in hand-tooled Italian leather distinguish these take-anywhere atomizers as a collector's treasure.
