An Uplifting Scent: Creed's Erolfa

When it comes to fragrances, the spring season instantly calls for light toned scents. Allow me to introduce the distinctively brisk nature of Creed's Erolfa - a periodic scent precisely crafted for the modern man featuring notes of Bergamot, Cedarwood, and Cyclamen. 

Inspired by the Mediterranean, a high point memory for Creed's family members, the shapely design of the bottle contains a very desirable parity of transient citrus scents that are as effervescent, as they are pleasantly clean, and pure on the first spray. Shortly after, thanks to the notes of ambergris, the salty quality of the fragrance starts to come into play emphasizing the obvious nautical detail of the fragrance. There's a very sophisticated feel. One that is very reminiscent of sailing on a summer yacht. 

While the spring/summer inspired fragrance may not be as strong as Creed's other offerings like Royal Oud, or Aventus, there's no denying that Erolfa is one of Creed's best. An enjoyable, satisfying, and adaptable fragrance in its own right.
