CREED Royal Oud Eau de Parfum, 75ml

Product information

A dream perfume from the pages of the Arabian Nights, Royal Oud is a scent which dazzles all the senses with its evocation of the rosy Persian dawn. Creed’s new masterpiece is ambiguous and mysterious; earthy, exotic and sensual in turn, enhanced by base notes of legendary, costly oil of oud.

Using ingredients which have been prized in the East for thousands of years, Royal Oud celebrates the glamour, spirituality and eroticism of oriental perfumery: spicy fresh top notes of lemon, pink pepper and bergamot entice into a dark deep heart of angelica, bitter green galbanum and Lebanese cedar. At the base, revel in the beguiling warmth of sandalwood and musk. Finally, surrender to the bewitching, sultry enigma of oud which complements the galbanum, and graces this unique fragrance with Creed’s legendary tenacity.

  • Top Notes: Lemon, Pink Pepper, Bergamot
  • Heart Notes: Angelica, Bitter Green Galbanum, Lebanese Cedar

Brand Story

In an era when the fragrance industry is dominated by globally advertised fashion and celebrity brands, it comes as a refreshing surprise to discover an authentic family-owned perfume house dedicated to the creation of highly original fragrances of extravagant quality and inspiration. This unique story began in 1760. A pair of scented leather gloves was delivered to King George III by a new London tailoring company. Founded by James Henry Creed in the same year as the young King's accession, the House of Creed has created fragrances for the discerning and the discriminating for over 260 years.
Queen Victoria - George III's granddaughter - appointed Creed as an official supplier to the Royal Household. Then, in 1854, under the patronage of Napoleon III and his Empress, Eugénie, the stylish leader of European fashion, the House of Creed moved its headquarters to Paris. Victoria had praised Creed only too well to her fellow Sovereigns. In newly rebuilt and glittering Second Empire Paris, Creed embellished its reputation for impeccable tailoring and for the exclusivity of its rare and limited House fragrances. The tact and discretion with which a royal, aristocratic and socially prominent clientele were handled rapidly became part of the Creed legend.
Creed has created a legacy of unrivalled scents treasured by perfume connoisseurs and all admirers of quality, style and panache. Over the centuries, the Creed family has produced over 200 perfumes all testifying to a unique creative spirit that has been passed, together with a keen inherited nose, from father to son through seven generations.
Today Olivier Creed, “Créateur Parfumeur” and direct descendant of James Henry Creed, continues this great tradition. Accompanied by his son Erwin, Olivier travels extensively to source, research, inspect and commission the finest materials. Rose from Bulgaria, Turkey & Morocco; Italian jasmine; Florentine iris; tuberose from India; Haitian vetiver; Bourbon vanilla; Calabrian bergamot and Parma violets. These are just a few of innumerable treasures in the Creed laboratory. They are all ingredients which have been used in haute parfumerie for many centuries, even millenia. Still based at Paris, with a factory at Fontainebleau, Creed manufactures many of its own essences using a traditional infusion technique – a process now abandoned as too costly by the modern perfume industry, but one which enables Creed to maintain the superior quality and authenticity of its fragrances. The raw ingredients and the resultant perfume are still weighed out, mixed and macerated by hand. The process is laborious, painstaking and labour intensive but Creed is driven by artistry and perfection, not by commercial priorities.
A timeless, modern act of creation: perfume of the past, fragrance of the future.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Slow Burn. Now, when I first prayed this instore, I did not like it that much, thought it was just OK. This was because of the initial opening but, has the hours go by, oh my! Such a beautiful unique developing fragrance, which just gets better and better on the skin. 1 Spray lasts 7-8 hours before having to dig your nose in but remember, that's you. Other people may very well get a better projection from you. I say this because in the 7th hour, I was asked if I had just sprayed on some perfume. 30 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Every man needs this I just love this on my husband and lasts all day !! Luv it 22 September 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very poor packaging. Considering the price of this perfume I was extremely disappointed to find that the seal on the spray leaked. I will be returning the perfume bottle back to John Lewis. I do not expect a brand with the reputation of Creed to provide something so poor in quality. 12 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Eastern Magic - worth every penny This is a product for those who appreciate their perfumes and understand the differences between generic perfumes and 'bespoke' perfumes. Even though at first glance it might appear expensive let me say that its value for money. With its deep notes the perfume lasts 3 or 4 times longer than generic perfumes when on the skin. As soon as the perfume makes contact with your skin you will enjoy the orchestra of notes as it intereracts with your skin. Every level of note is amazing. If i had to use an anaolgy to compare creed with convential brands I would say its like listening to bach in surround sound compared to mono. I have had many people come to me complimenting about the perfume I was wearing - especially women. A 'bently' of perfumes and a must have for those who appreciate their smells and finer things in life 21 October 2013
