When he was a boy, Olivier Creed, sixth generation and current master perfumer, visited his family's summer home in Normandy, France. On a wall in the yard grew a lavish honeysuckle vine. Young Olivier Creed loved to stand by the vine and inhale its fine, gentle aroma in the morning. Later, when he became Creed's master perfumer, Olivier Creed created Chevrefeuille - honeysuckle in French - to commemorate that happy childhood memory.
Creed Chevrefeuille has since been vaulted by the House of Creed.

Like most of Creed's pre-1980s men's fragrances, this one smells like a old-school barbershop aftershave. This gem also carries a strong nuance of urine (possibly civet or castoreum) that doesn't disappear with the drydown. The floral and green top notes give the opening a special twist of urine from a pasture-fed cow that chanced upon a lucky snack of wild honeysuckle. This is the perfect fragrance to wear if you're a dairy farmer hoping to pick up a cow.
