JET SET DISCOVERY BOX: Creed Virgin Island Water

Originally founded in 1760 by James Henry Creed, this fragrance soon became a favourite of the aristocracy (with Queen Victoria personally appointing Creed as an official supplier to the royal household). And it’s still going strong nearly two and a half centuries later.

Creed is now overseen by Oliver Creed – a direct descendent of James Henry – and his dashing son, Erwin. And this lusciously elegant and totally tropical perfume was directly inspired by a sailing trip father and son took to the Caribbean islands. Even if your jet set location isn’t quite this fabulous, one spritz of Virgin Island Water and we know you’ll be closing your eyes and joining us in the exotic dream…

With a harmonious blend of Sicilian white bergamot, Jamaican lime, coconut and white florals gently spiced with ginger and musky woods, this is a highly sophisticated yet intensely joyful holiday blend in a bottle.

You may have the latest designer sunglasses and be wearing a drop-dead glamorous bikini – but the zingy zip of freshly-squeezed lime cuts through the sweetness and will have you giggling with glee and running across the beach to be first to dip your toes in the crystal clear water…
