CREED are releasing Aventus, a new fragrance for men that, “honours traits of virility, power, strength and vision, inspired by Napoleon, the man who crowned himself emperor of France and all Europe, a self-made king who waged war, peace and love on terms he set.”

CREED Aventus gets its name from an ancient word meaning “success”.  Aventus debuts in America before all other countries, a CREED rarity.  Part of proceeds from U.S. sales of CREED Aventus will benefit American Rivers, protecting U.S. waterways from harm.  This choice was made as Aventus includes birch of Louisiana, an area Napoleon ruled, but today a focus of environmental concern.

CREED Aventus debuts in September at the CREED boutique at 794 Madison Avenue in Manhattan (1-877-CREED 44), at, at Neiman Marcus and its website, Bergdorf Goodman and its website and the Saks Fifth Avenue New York City flagship store.
