Commissioned by King George III in 1781, the fragrance was created to scent the gloves Creed then made for the English Royal Court. James Creed - the first generation of the House of Creed - was the king's glove maker. Scented gloves were worn by the court in order to inhale the glove's fine aroma, a popular necessity of the time to combat the odor of the ubiquitously poor hygienic conditions. The king loved the scented gloves so much, he asked James Creed to make a fragrance. James Creed created Royal English Leather for His Majesty - and launched the most illustrious dynasty in the history of fragrance.
