More On Creed Coming to NYC

Posted on: September 28, 2009

More information is coming out about the Creed store coming to New York City that I posted about on September 21. Turns out that Creed’s plan to launch it’s first store in North America doesn’t stop there. This first, new store, to be located at 794 Madison Avenue (corner of 67th Street), is a bit of a guinea pig. Upon it’s success, plans for two more U.S. stores will be carried out, possibly located in downtown Manhattan and Beverly Hills. And aggressive plans they are, with the Madison store to open in November, and the following two in the spring. Currently, the Paris based perfumer only has two locations, in Paris and Dubai. This big step forward is all about branding and reaching out to their international customers.

As I mentioned in my previous post, Creed is one of the oldest family businesses in the world and has had some of the most notable clients in its history, including royalty. For Creed’s 250th anniversary, which coincides with the planned opening of the New York store, the perfumer is releasing a commemorative fragrance from its archives. The 1936 creation, Windsor, will be available in limited edition leather wrapped, 1.7 oz. bottles for $405, and 8.4 oz. flacons numbered and signed by perfumer Olivier Creed, for $605. Windsor was originally created for the King Edward VIII (the Duke of Windsor), with ingredients from the British Empire. The worldly notes of Windsor consist of British gin, Jamaican lime, and Scottish highland pine top notes; a middle note of Duke of Windsor roses; and bottom notes of Bahamian orange, Canadian cedar, and Australian eucalyptus. Sounds like such a delectable scent, yet I would be still be hesitant to even open such a collectible item.
