Beauty Tues: Creed’s Spring Flower Fragrance

IMG_9047

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.

Thanks so much, Tara, for always giving me a little history lesson about Creed! It is so amazing how each scent has its own little story!

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, my fabulouses! I had a fabulous time at the Saks Fifth Avenue Birmingham Bloggers Breakfast–where fragrance experts chatted with local bloggers about some delicious perfumes in preparation for the upcoming Fragrance Week, November 29-December 8. All this talk about fragrances has me super pumped, and I am currently working on my list to Santa. “Santa Baby, put lots of perfume from Saks under the tree for me….”

Fragrance expert Tara told us about some old Hollywood stars who signature perfumes were Creed. I think I will be adding Audrey Hepburn's favorite, Spring Flower, for Christmas! Dear Santa...*wink*
Fragrance expert Tara chatted with us about Creed’s magnificent history, famous people who wore it, and so much more. Y’all stay tuned to a future blog about Creed perfume:)
