Episode 26: The House of Creed

Inside Creed, One of the World's Oldest Perfume Houses, with Luis Cavallo



About the Episode

Creed is one of the oldest perfume brands in the world. Founded in 1760 as a tailoring house, it has spanned seven generations of perfumers, making it a truly legendary name in fragrance. They first became known for creating bespoke scents for royals and dignitaries. Today, they carry on their legacy with handmade craftsmanship and rare ingredients that culminate into timeless fragrances like Aventus, Carmina, and Love in White.

In this episode, Luis sits down with Brittney Jackson Moseley, who runs integrated marketing at Scentbird. He goes deep into Creed’s history, shares an inside look at their artisanal process, and reveals the most expensive ingredient in fragrance.
