Viking Cologne - What is All the Hype About?

Words by Mia Tran

If there is one fragrance that we constantly get asked for a detailed review of more than any other from the House of Creed, it is the new Viking Cologne.

So, why is it the most talked-about Creed fragrance of 2021?

And what is ALL the hype REALLY about?

From the fascinating story and inspiration behind the bottle to the ingredients used and how it differs from its predecessor - Viking, here is EVERYTHING you need to know about this new fragrance!

Launched on Libertine Parfumerie in May 2021, Viking Cologne is a contemporary scent that captures the spirit of adventurous souls and modern explorers.

A sensual ode to the natural world, free-spirited and bracing take on the classic Fougère style, Viking Cologne is a universal fragrance of boundless exploration, waiting to be discovered. It evokes the cool freshness of the arctic sun and aqua blue fjords, invigorating freedom of ocean journeys and waterfalls.

Created using the house tradition of millésimé - passed down through generations of the Creed family, sourcing only the finest natural ingredients, the juice of the Viking Cologne perfume has been an absolute obsession for us. All materials are hand selected, weighed and macerated to an exact formula created by Master Perfumer Olivier Creed, embracing fresh citrus top notes, perked-up by the aromatic heart notes of Geranium, Lavender, Nutmeg, Rosemary and Sage, combined with a masterful alchemy of Sandalwood, Frankincense, Patchouli, Cedarwood & Vetiver.

Fougères are one of the oldest continual styles of fragrance in existence and with Viking Cologne, the House of Creed have reinvigorated this classic formula with expansive marine vistas and chilled woody-fresh aromatics. Every bottle of Viking Cologne is handcrafted in the House of Creed workshop. From blending and macerating to hand labelling and sealing, every House of Creed fragrance is driven by artistry and perfection.

To wear Creed Viking Cologne is to wear something timeless, with a classic lineage, refined aromatic design and covetable modern function.
