Description Creed Love in BlackIngredients
Love in Black is a floral fragrance for women from the workshop of the unique, dynastic and privately owned niche perfume brand Creed. 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 Creed Love in Black Eau de Parfum offers the fragrance of wild flowers at dusk.
The Love in Black Eau de Parfum is one of the true gems of the Creed brand. This seductive and simultaneously floral bouquet is a joint project by Olivier Creed, a leading perfumer from the sixth generation of the Creed dynasty, and Erwin Creed, from the seventh generation. They have taken their inspiration from probably the most interesting First Lady of the United States of the 20th century, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, whose mysterious beauty is evoked by the Creed Love in Black fragrance. The fragrance perfectly portrays the sublime and refined tastes of this unforgettable First Lady.
Ingredients from the places which the well-travelled Jacqueline loved were used to create the Love in Black Eau de Parfum. Even the flacon is inspired by the dark sands of the Greek islands, where this remarkable lady married for the second time, and by her favourite black velvet riding hat. The aromatic composition of Creed Love in Black opens in the head with notes of Italian violets, Virginia cedar and meadow flowers. The heart contains irises, cloves and musk, while the base consists of tones of blackcurrant and Bulgarian roses. The overall aroma masterfully combines powdery, floral and woody aspects with fruity and warm spicy attributes and it is sublimely elegant and nonchalantly seductive.
The Creed Love in Black Eau de Parfum, full of unique refined character, will be especially appreciated by women who like powdery floral fragrances, especially those with violets and irises in the main role. It will appeal to women who admire the unique style of the unforgettable Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and, of course, also to every lady who appreciates quality and luxury. Love in Black is suitable for day and evening wear throughout the year. It will, however, stand out best on autumn nights. It provides its wearer with a wonderful touch of exclusivity and gives her an aura of grandeur and sophisticated style.
The perfumes from the Creed brand are attractive not only thanks to their enchanting fragrances, but also their exceptional and elegantly beautiful packaging. As is the case with many Creed perfumes, the word “millesime”, which is a hallmark of quality, also appears here. It indicates that the very best ingredients from the given year were used in the production of the perfume.

For more than 250 years, the brand has been creating extraordinary fragrances for royal families and other customers of exquisite taste.

These days, Creed is mostly known for its classic masculine fragrances that are favourited by celebrities like Robert De Niro or Sylvester Stallone.
But Creed still remains the perfume brand of royals and presidents (it’s a well known fact that both Michelle Obama and the Duchess of Cambridge wear Creed perfumes). The company now resides in France and operates in other countries including the US. In keeping with the long tradition, Creed still uses many of the old distilling methods and chooses the ingredients carefully to only include the very best that is available.
