The Iconic Fragrance Range To Gift This Christmas

The Iconic Fragrance Range To Gift This Christmas

For stylish and sophisticated scents, you can’t beat The House of Creed. Those in the know will tell you their best-known fragrance – Aventus – is often dubbed ‘the smell of success’, and the good news is there’s a version for her, as well as him. Even better, they’ve now extended the iconic Aventus For Her range to encompass a selection of desirable body products. Here, we explain how the range came to be and why any of the products will make a thoughtful and impressive gift this Christmas.


First, why is Creed such a popular brand?

The House of Creed was founded in 1760, and has since built a reputation for creating unique, iconic scents – all of which are captivating and addictive. Family-run, the brand’s popularity took off after King George III received a pair of gloves scented by James Henry Creed, which he loved. Since then, the company has continued to grow and expand upon their eponymous line, using ancient techniques to build a fragrance offering that truly stands out from the rest, boasting high quality ingredients and artisanal skill. Today, every Creed scent is original and handmade – and quite unlike anything else you’ll find on the market. 

So, what’s so special about Aventus For Her?

Aventus For Her was launched in 2016 and it was composed to compliment its male counterpart, Aventus, while also celebrating femininity and elegance. Before it hit the shelves, it took five years to make, as Olivier Creed – who also created the original Aventus – wanted to create something that emulated women worldwide and was wearable day-to-day, and year-round. Using refined, natural oils, it’s heady, intoxicating and rich with the kind of luxe longevity you’d expect. 

Given the cost, can you try it before you buy? 

Because fragrance is so individual, you’d be forgiven for wanting to try before you buy. Having recognised this, as well as the current challenges involved in getting to a store, Creed has launched a new collection of online exclusive sample sets. Perfect for introducing yourself or a friend to a new scent, there are four variations for both men and women to explore before choosing their next signature fragrance. Explore the sets here.

So, what should you try?

Although it’s an SL favourite, there’s more to the Aventus for Her range than just the fragrance itself. Here’s what else you can find in the brand’s popular line – from their iconic soap, to beautiful gift sets, luxe body oils and more...


The Uplifting Wash: Aventus For Her Shower Gel, £85

If you’re on a budget but want to try out any cult fragrance, a shower gel is often a great place to start. Creed’s Aventus For Her body wash is as potent as the real thing. Refreshing and uplifting, expect the same crisp scent and musky dry down that lingers on the skin for hours. Plus, it’s low-sulphate formula lathers up softly without ever stripping the skin of essential nourishment.

The Cult Fragrance: Aventus For Her EDP, £260

An ideal counterpart to the brand’s legendary male fragrance, Aventus, this feminine scent embodies the image of a powerful women like none other on the market. Laced with fruity-fresh notes of apple, rose and lilac, it offers a creamy, seductive dry down that will get you stopped on the street. Rich notes of patchouli, amber and musk also leave behind a scent that will last all day. We love the distinctive crown-shaped bottle, too, which would be a welcome addition to any dressing table.

The Skin Nourisher: Aventus For Her Body Lotion, £85

Layer your fragrance with this rich body lotion. Thick and creamy, it sinks in fast, while also nourishing the skin. It can either be used on its own – as an accessible way to explore the iconic scent before investing in the fragrance – or layered with the EDP to enhance its intensity. Extra points go to the easy-to-use pump.

The Last-Minute Gift: Aventus For Her Soap, £36

Beautifully designed, we love this Aventus For Her soap, which has been hand-milled for optimum skin-softening results. Massaged into skin, it produces a gentle lather that foams up and quickly cleanses the skin, while also coating it in the cult fragrance. Great for those on-the-go, it’s an ideal stocking filler. Install one in your shower, sink side, and in your travel bag.

The Luxe Treat: Aventus For Her Body Oil, £100

This luxe body oil is a treat for both the senses and the skin. With a rich blend of natural oils, it works to soften, condition and restore suppleness, while also delivering a hint of the iconic fragrance. Alcohol-free, it’s suitable for all skin types and can be used on its own or layered underneath the fragrance for extra depth. Massage it in using circular motions from your ankles upwards, immediately after your shower or bath for best results.

The Crowd-Pleaser: Aventus For Her Bath & Body Gift Set, £325

For die-hard fans of the brand, or anyone looking for a luxurious treat, this set has it all. Housing Aventus For Her, alongside two luxurious body care essentials (shower gel and body lotion), it’s a must-have for anyone who takes their fragrances seriously. An investment, but a worthy one, especially as each product should last you for months. You won’t need to spend hours wrapping it either – it comes ready-wrapped in a beautiful presentation box.
