Windsor was created in 1936 for King Edward VIII. Handmade from ingredients grown across the empire Edward ruled, Windsor is a royal blend of British gin, Scottish pine, Canadian cedar, Jamaican lime and more. Edward made headlines when he quit Britain's throne to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. He wore Windsor as king and later when he and his wife began a new life in Paris as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, superstars of international society.

Originally created in 1936 King Edward VIII of England and relaunched in 2009 as a limited edition. Relaunched in 2015 as Royal Mayfair

King Aventus' court is filled with jesters, prince's, servants, all making merry and having a terrific time, when all of a sudden Creed Windsor's footsteps begin to approach. Aventus: "Why do I hear boss music?"

Creed Windsor is splendid. When I wear this, I imagine a sophisticated gentleman, 50, maybe 55 + years old. Mature in character and well-mannered, crisp grey suit, in his study on his English estate.

Windsor is so English, so refined. A masculine rose with a very prominent sweet orange, backed by eucalyptus and maybe a faint touch of gin.

Whilst people in Aventus' court are squabbling over pineapple inconsistencies, I'll be over here enjoying a conversation with this gentleman on this English countryside estate


Tremendously pleasant scent from the house of Creed!

Windsor delights with its thoughtfully selected ingredients, resulting in an amazingly fresh, floral and green experience that just OOZES quality and prestige.

What I appreciate about Windsor is that it caters to men even though it is so full of florals; the key is for Creed to create a very natural, rain kissed formulation that simply pleases every time without smelling like a lady's perfume. The tang, mintiness, and cedar wood really augment Windsor's overall quality.

Great fragrance worth testing and - if you can afford it - to get a full bottle.


The slightly boozy opening in delicious, with the fresh lime being given additional depth and substance by the woodsy pine undertone.

The drydown develops a lovely rose, which soon is overwhelmed by an intensive, nigh Hammam-Bouquet (the original vintage)-style tuberose, which is not too waxy. Far a while this tuberose is quite the dominant note in my skin.

Cedar and eucalyptus are indeed evident in the base, but the balance is tilted towards the cedar in me. In the first version of Windsor the drydown and the base had a more green touch, which made is rather special indeed.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and five hours of longevity on my skin.

This scent for spring and cooler summer days is beautifully blended in high-quality natural ingredients. I prefer the first original version.
Personally speaking, this is one of my favourites for Royal Ascot. 4/5 for the original, 3.75/5 for the second release.


WINDSOR is definitely another masterpiece by CREED and it is like all CREED fragrances most expensive too but in my opinion worth the money.It is simply delicious and ambrosial. beautiful,natural and quite romantic.

WINDSOR opens with a beautiful blast with Lime and whisper of Pine as it is fresh.rose scent in middle note is enough because to make you realize this is a lovely romantic scent in fact all notes this one are in perfect harmony.however i find it little feminine.

For me it is like a smile on a young boys face.a great fragrance that can wear for day or night and still make you feel refresh and romantic.perfect for intimate occasions when you want to feel beautiful.


I initially hoped I would like Windsor a great bit, but was unfortunately disappointed. The brief citric/eucalyptus opening was nice with an almost bracing cola scent, but on my skin it quickly dried down to an exceedingly feminine floral concoction and stayed that way during the duration of the scent.

Windsor is dominated by a little rose with large quantities of tuberose, lily of the valley, jasmine, lilac, magnolia, and other flowers. This could have been an excellent women's perfume, but Creed chose to market it to men because Creed's consumer base is almost elusively male--and I enjoy floral fragrances, but this is just too much.

You would do better to approximate an Edwardian fragrance with Acqua di Parma Colonia or even Hammam Bouquet (vintage of course).


My current favorite from the Creed line. I haven't smelled anything like this. For any fragrance connoisseur and enjoys Creed this is definitely worth looking at. What a masterpiece!
