We Smell Something…. Pink
Creed is truly embracing the power of pink with its new fragrance, Carmina EDP. Said to be “a sensual celebration of feminine allure,” the fragrance was inspired by the fashion sketchbooks of Henry Creed, which have been passed down for generations and were recently rediscovered. We would’ve never been able to tell because Carmina feels like a powerful modern aroma for the new woman. A woody, amber, floral scent - the fragrance comes with the top notes of silage, black cherry, saffron and pink pepper tied together with heart notes of Rose de Mai, Violet, and Peony. Add to this the base notes of Myrrh, Frankincense, Amber and Musk. All of this comes in a captivating deep pink bottle, that will elevate anyone’s fragrance collection. Just like Creed found his Carmina, we might have found our new favourite fragrance from this legacy brand. Available on their website for £165 for 30 ml and £260 for 75 ml.
