The first release in the Creed Royal Exclusives collection, Sublime Vanille is an investment-quality fragrance and object of art from sixth generation master perfumer Olivier Creed and his son, Erwin. The Royal Exclusives collection is one of the most ambitious projects in Creed's 250 years, a statement to the aesthetic world about the legacy, quality and collectability of fragrance as art. Creed Sublime Vanille is sought by connoisseurs -- and by newcomers to fragrance who wish to begin their collections with a true asset in scent.
Classification: Soft Oriental
Characteristics: Rich with fine vanilla, a most beloved fragrance element across all times, places and cultures: a truly enduring ingredient. A Creed Royal Exclusive, Sublime Vanille is offered in a one-ounce spray or in a hand blown Pochet glass bottle etched with Creed's crest: art object and fragrance in one. Its cut-glass cap is removed to reveal an open-neck pour. Creed recommends the separate purchase of a 1.7 oz Creed leather-wrapped atomizer. (Hyperlink to Atomizer page)

Founded in 1760 and passed from father to son, Creed is the world's only privately held luxury fragrance dynasty. Based in Paris, the company today is led by Olivier Creed, a sixth-generation master perfumer. Creed is famous for unrelenting high standards when it comes to fragrance creation.. Mr. Creed travels the globe searching for the purest essences to compose his masterpieces. Using the infusion technique (which has been abandoned by the modern industry), Creed weighs, mixes, macerates, and filters everything by hand. They also use the highest percentage of natural components in the prestigious French perfume industry.
