Creed was inspired by a sojourn to the Caribbean, particularly in the unique experience gained by sailing on the Sir Francis Drake Channel, which explains its cocktail-like combination of notes. White bergamot, Sicilian mandarin and Jamaican lime open the fragrance, while the heart reveals ylang ylang, ginger, sweet hibiscus and Indian jasmine. At its base are white rum, sugar cane and musk. It was signed by both Olivier and Edwin Creed and was first introduced in 2007.
Virgin Island Water by Creed Review
Take Virgin Island Water with you if you’re expecting a refreshing, boozy trip to the beach, or if you’re stuck in the office dreaming of one. The notes that take the spotlight—coconut, rum and lime—help improve the experience for us because of its natural quality. It projects nicely, but not too much, and quickly progresses as a skin scent in the passing hours. Virgin Island Water works as great in the summer as it would in the cold.
We feel that the notes, particularly the lime, coconut and rum are well in harmony
The accords are presented as natural as possible
Has fair sillage and good staying power
Works wonderfully in the summer
Wears close to the skin
