Creed Royal Mayfair Cologne Review

Posted by Dimitri on Mon, 05/21/2018 - 2:52 PM

Loyal fans of the house of Creed know that if they are sitting on a bottle of Creed’s “Windsor” that they are sitting on a pot of gold. First created in 1936 for King Edward the VIII of England, Windsor has been re-released just a handful of times over the years and in very small batches. However, because of the fragrance’s universal appeal, in 2015, Creed decided to tweak the formula a little and offer it to the masses under a brand new name; that name is ROYAL MAYFAIR.

Royal Mayfair - as the name suggests - pays homage to its royal history. A beautiful masculine fragrance (which incidentally, is also adored by the ladies), Royal Mayfair  opens with a stellar shot of gin… a juniper-y note that blends well with it’s flight of pine and eucalyptus. These three accords imbue the scent with a sense of vast green open spaces. They steep over a lip-smacking heart of peach and rose, however its important to point out that Royal Windsor is not a sweet scent, and a considered woody base provides support to the composition. Royal Windsor smells sophisticated and debonair… perhaps the scent of a meticulously groomed gentleman.

Reserved for special occasions, semi-formal events, office wear and nighttime use, Creed’s sublime 82 year old fragrance is still managing to lure newcomers in the here and now. Luxurious, comforting, self-assured.
