The Paris-based fragrance line seems to be in a league. Creed is a privately held perfume company whose ownership has been passed on to the same family line since 1760. Current owner Olivier Creed traces the business of perfume back to the company's founder James Henry Creed.
The Creed perfume is famous for the fact that it has continually been employed by royal houses to create fragrances. Some of the company's most famous clients have been Queen Victoria, Grace Kelly, and Kate Middleton.
