Olivier CREED with his son, Erwin, presents a fragrance that evokes in dusk blooming wildflowers the enigmatic beauty of America's most intriguing First Lady of the 20th century: her dark, mysterious eyes behind black sunglasses, her wavelets of brunette hair, her trim shape in a black sheath. To create Love In Black, Mr. CREED blended ingredients from places loved by this well-traveled woman. Even the bottle is made with black sand like that in the Greek isles where she wed a legendary shipping tycoon. CREED Love In Black is released on the 40th anniversary of that wedding.
