Description Creed Bois Du PortugalIngredients
Creed Bois du Portugal is an Oriental woody fragrance for men. This Eau de Parfum comes from the workshop of a luxury, dynastic and privately owned niche perfume brand. As well as an exceptional tradition passed down from father to son since 1760 and a celebrated history (more than 250 years of creating exceptional fragrances for royal families and other exacting customers with refined tastes), the Creed brand can also boast the use of classic techniques when processing the rare materials selected for the production of its unrivalled perfumes.
The Bois du Portugal Eau de Parfum is one of the true gems of the Creed brand. This rich, warm, very masculine and slightly mysterious blend is inspired by fragrant wood from Portugal. Olivier Creed, a top perfumer from the sixth generation of the Creed family, has created a perfume brimming with personality and strength. The aromatic composition is enchanting thanks to the tones of bergamot in the head and lavender in the heart. The perfume then rests on a complex woody base in which there are notes of vetiver, ambergris, cedar and sandalwood from Mysore.
The intoxicating scent of Creed Bois du Portugal will instantly enchant you before inviting you to gradually discover its hidden depths. Complex, seductive and soothing, this Eau de Parfum, loved by men, is also highly attractive to women, who especially appreciate its warmth. It provides its wearer with a touch of individuality and luxury and gives him an aura of warm attractive strength. It is no wonder that Bois du Portugal was a favourite perfume of none other than Frank Sinatra.
The Creed Bois du Portugal Eau de Parfum will be especially appreciated by men who like woody Oriental fragrances. It will appeal to those who love excellent, masterfully composed perfumes with hidden depths and, of course, to everybody who appreciates quality and luxury to a truly extraordinary extent. Bois du Portugal is suitable for day and evening wear. You will appreciate it most in the chilly months, when it will warm you pleasantly.
The perfumes from the Creed brand are attractive not only thanks to their enchanting fragrances, but also their exceptional and elegant packaging, which constitutes a modern take on a historical legacy. As is the case with many Creed perfumes, the flacon for Bois du Portugal carries the word “millesime”, which is a hallmark of quality. It indicates that the very best ingredients from the given year were used in the production of the perfume. The packaging includes a beautiful box with gold accents.
