In case you are looking for those last minute gifts or have suddenly decided that big book on Karl Lagerfeld might not be quite enough for the lovely lady in your life, you’re in luck. We found a gift that’s literally fit for royalty. Fragrances by CREED have been the preferred scents of royals, politicians and Hollywood elite since its conception in 1760. Our favorite perfume, Love In Black was created in 2008 and inspired by First Lady Jackie O.—which pretty much earned it a permanent place on our vanity. Named for her dark hair and eyes, hiding behind those iconic shades, the fragrance takes its notes from the various places she would frequent including Virginia and Greece. The top notes include night-blooming wildflowers, violet and cedar, with middle notes of iris, clove and Tonkin musk. The heavier base notes of black current and Bulgarian rose stand out making this a beautifully feminine fragrance. The perfume starts off with the base notes and lingers into the lighter ones as time passes, allowing the full bouquet to be appreciated. It’s one of the longest lasting fragrances we’ve ever experienced and one of the best scents to wear year-round.
