It’s possibly too early in the year, in fact – no it is too early, to be talking about winter. However, if you’re considering your next winter fragrance – may we draw your attention to the new Spice and Wood offering from Creed.

Described as darkly aromatic, as the name suggests it contains a raft of woody notes including; birch, iris, angelica and cedar. Said notes remind you of forests, log fires and smoke. The addition of seasonal spices; pimento and clove add fiery notes with a festive twist. Spice and Wood is full bodied, and certainly masculine.

Housed in a clear-glass, fluted flacon with octagonal stopper and traditional Creed logo. An elegant design, as we have become used to with Creed, finished with gold lettering – £415/ 150ml.
