When it comes to fragrance and gender, are there rules to follow?
Something to consider when choosing a fragrance is that “A fragrance doesn’t have a gender, it has an attitude!” A quote I adore and one that I truly embody myself. One of my favourite scents to wear from the women's collection is Acqua Fiorentina, with the delicious opening of Pineapple and Grapefruit. The edible heart of apple, rose and plum with the intoxicating base of cedarwood and white musk instantly transports me to a warm summer evening, when the sun is beginning to set, and the sky is filled with clouds of purple and Orange. Bliss!
A typically masculine scent that is just outrageously wonderful and a very popular choice for ladies, is none other than our blockbuster, Aventus. This bold and adventurous scent with the opening of luscious lemon, pink pepper and blackcurrant beats with jasmine, pineapple and patchouli, drying down to a charming base of oak moss, cedarwood and birch. Many women have been wearing this scent since the fragrance was first launched in 2010 and continue to do so, even after the creation of Aventus For Her in 2016. Softening the masculine tones with a layer of Virgin Island Water provides a fruity, universal twist for the wearer also.
What should I opt for if I’m buying a gift and are not sure whether they’d prefer more of a masculine or feminine scent?
Another wonderful gifting idea would be one of our beautiful leather wallet sample sets. Each leather wallet features 8 different 1.7ml fragrance samples for you to discover. One I would recommend would be the Universal Leather Fragrance Wallet or our Red Leather Fragrance Wallet which houses the very best creations from The House of Creed, spanning both the male and female collections.
