Creed – Original Vetiver
Original Vetiver pays homage to the legendary journeys of the Spanish Conquistadores. The Santa Maria reached the island of Haiti after traversing the Caribbean. We are writing about 06 December 1492, when Christopher Columbus sighted this heavenly piece of earth for the first time. In his diary he writes: “Discovering the island Hispaniola (Haiti), it is the most beautiful country that man has ever seen.”
For Columbus “the West Indian island”, which he called Hispaniola, was probably the most beautiful island that human eyes had ever beheld- a Paradise. Columbus’ fascination for the endless palm lined beaches, the white sand and the crystal-clear water is reawakened, with Creeds Original Vetiver, to new life. Pure Vetiver – finest essence won from the original Vetiver grass from Haiti forms the main component of this singular fragrant creation. Vetiver is considered as a balm to all deracinated people and connects with the forces of the earth. This ingredient could not have been better dedicated to anybody than the sailor Columbus, who spent twelve years sailing the world’s seas.
