Creed Royal Mayfair Cologne is a reissue of Creed’s most popular limited edition fragrance ever, Creed Windsor. It was created in 1936 for King Edward VIII of England who quit the throne to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. He then became known as the Duke of Windsor. The fragrance reissue Royal Mayfair celebrates all men and the Mayfair district is home to the London Creed boutique. This fragrance is a tour of the British Empire that he once ruled. It features top notes of British gin, Jamaican lime and a touch of Scottish highland pine; middle notes of “Duke of Windsor” roses—the Nuits de Young variety which were the kind he preferred in his own garden; and base notes of Bahamian orange, Canadian cedar and Australian eucalyptus. Creed Royal Mayfair is an EDP, eau de parfum and in the Floral Fruity Gourmand fragrance group.
from bestmenscolognes.com - "While this is listed as a unisex fragrance, the rose and eucalyptus, make this fragrance veer more towards the feminine side of things, in my opinion. It’s not super girly or anything but the floral and greenery do give it that sort of feeling."
from basenotes - "The first spray of Royal Mayfair brings a strong medicinal smell. Whew! Let's move away from that one, I thought. So I left Saks and noticed a better scent in the air as I was walking around the mall. It was uplifting, enchanting, elusive. Did someone wearing it just pass by? How will I ever find them to ask? Is it coming from a store? At some point I lifted my hand toward my face and discovered the bewitching scent was coming from me!"
