Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to this week’s VIP Beauty Tues News which is all about a Creed fragrance commissioned in 1951 by fashion and film icon Audrey Hepburn.
I first learned about Spring Flower and its history from Saks Fifth Avenue Birmingham’s Creed Fragrance Expert Tara Powell, and I immediately fell in love with the flirty, fruity scent. I mean, come on–what fashionista does not want to smell like the one and only Audrey Hepburn?!
Spring Flower is a unique blend of peach, melon, and apple top notes, jasmine and rose middle notes, and base notes of musk and ambergris. When I put on this youthfully fun and simultaneously sexy scent, it gives me an overwhelming confidence–smelling fabulous is the icing on the cake of any fashionista’s outfit! “Delightfully pink and pretty, Creed Spring Flower is a playful and unapologetic celebration of feminine energy and style that is true to the spirit of the woman who inspired it. Fruity, floral, sweet, youthful and sexy.” (www.creedboutique.com)
I am so excited that I will now be wearing Spring Flower and smelling like the old Hollywood starlet Audrey Hepburn! Wait a minute…Audrey Hepburn…Abby Hathorn….both of our initials are “A.H.”…Could this be a sign that La Madame is only the beginning of my acting career? Hmmmm… *wink*

Hello, fabulouses! Welcome to this week’s Beauty Tues which is all about my new fragrance brand addiction–Creed. After chatting with Tara Powell, Creed fragrance expert at Saks Fifth Avenue of Birmingham, about the history of Creed and some popular scents, I was immediately inspired to blog about it.
When and where did the oldest privately owned fragrance house gain its start? Once upon a time–a long, long time ago, the Creed family tailored to royalty. By tailored, I mean they supplied royal families with custom-fitted clothing and scented leather gloves. In 1781, Royal English Leather, the first Creed fragrance ever, was created for King George III and his court. “He [James Creed] wanted King George III to be able to rest his chin on his gloved hand and inhale the glove’s fine aroma.” (www.creedboutique.com) Royal English Leather is still manufactured and available for purchase today. Famous people like King George III, Queen Victoria, Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, and Audrey Hepburn wore Creed–AMAZING! With just one spritz of Creed, I feel like I am wearing a little piece of history!
Random Fact About Creed: Did you know that you can request House of Creed to make your own personal fragrance for only $25,000? I am going to start saving my pennies! I can see it now…”Creed presents its newest fragrance Miss VIP.” *wink*

Y’all already know how much I love Jo Malone so I am not going to bore y’all with the details again! See my blog post about Jo Malone here.
