[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’ve got another couple of products that I picked up at the CEW (Cosmetic Executive Woman) event a couple of weeks ago – I love them both but I’ll start with this tiny sample of Creed Wind Flowers which I am now guarding with my life!
Creed Wind Flowers could not be more appropriate for now – it’s a whispery, soft and lightly sweet fragrance that is just delicious on the skin. There’s definitely something spring-ish about it; maybe the warmth that’s not solar and only just there but also blossom notes – orange and peach – with the lightest touch of jasmine.
There’s a petal-like rose note and a richer tone of tuberose that make Wind Flowers sit so nicely on the skin, followed by musk, praline (barely) and iris which I can’t actually pick out at all. It’s just the gentlest fragrance that cossets like cashmere, soothes like music and touches the senses like fairy wings. It’s £260 HERE, so pray for that lottery win, but oh, it’s beautiful! Creed Virgin Island Water was the very first fragrance that woke me up to the idea that aromas could conjure emotions (rather than just ‘smelling nice’) and could olfactorily place you in the very spot the nose (Olivier Creed) took their inspiration from.
Wind Flowers appears in the Creed Universal Sample Set, £38 HERE, along with Green Irish Tweed, Aventus, Aventus Cologne and Aventus For Her (so, rather nice to explore with a male friend/other/partner) and you can redeem the £38 if you go full size. Literally, fight him for Wind Flowers! There are a couple of more specific male/female sample sets too HERE. They’re 1.7ml phials.
