It began as a bottle of Royal English Leather—a rich mix of mandarin, ambergris and sandalwood—commissioned by King George III (after becoming enamored with a pair of Creed scented gloves). Passed from father to son for seven generations since its London founding in 1760 by James Henry Creed, The House of Creed has been handcrafting uncommon fragrances for royal houses and discerning patrons for over 250 years.
As the only fragrance house to rely on an ancient infusion technique to capture the raw and rare materials of each perfume, Creed has created a legacy of unrivaled scents, both commissioned and worn by history’s greatest names: Queen Victoria (Fleurs de Bulgarie); Empress Eugenie of France (Jasmin Imperatrice Eugenie); Emperor Franz-Josef of Austria-Hungary and his wife, the Empress “Sissi” Elisabeth (Fantasia de Fleurs); Spain’s Queen Maria Cristina (Vanisia) and a host of global politicians including Sir Winston Churchill (Tabarome Millesime); President John F. Kennedy (Vetiver); as well as constellation of movie stars and several First Ladies.
Based outside of Paris today, each scent is weighed, mixed, macerated and filtered all by hand in the highest tradition of the House’s founder, James Creed. Today, sixth generation and master perfumer Olivier Creed and his son, Erwin Creed, carry on the craft from their Parisian laboratory. Father and son each personally seek out the purest elements from around the world to continue the art of Creed’s perfume making—a timeless, yet modern take on history, bottled.
Terry de Gunzburg is a trailblazing industry legend who over the course of the past 30 years has changed the face of beauty.
Hailing from a family of scientists, Terry initially embarked on a career in medicine, but soon abandoned her studies for a more creative life. Cutting her teeth at the now fabled Carita beauty school in Paris she quickly became an in-demand studio makeup artist working across runway and editorial with some of the biggest names in fashion from Helmut Newton to Guy Bourdin. Her trademark beauty look has always been distinctive: imperceptible foundation, impeccable lips and thick, separated lashes.
But it was her collaboration with Yves Saint Laurent that would leave an indelible mark on fashion and beauty history. As International Makeup Designer of YSL Beauté for 15 years, Terry invented countless products and formulas, including the iconic Touché Eclat in 1992. Indeed, radiance and a healthy, but an invisible complexion has always been key to Terry’s approach to make up, so when she decided to launch her own collection of products in 1998, ByTerry was born as a bespoke ‘couture’ beauty line offering made to measure cosmetics.
Word soon spread and a year later, Terry introduced an ultra-luxurious soon to be cult beauty line to the wider market. In 2004 after a mix up in the lab, double the amount of rose butter was added to a lip balm which would soon become ByTerry’s most successful product: Baume de Rose. Described as the Rolls Royce of lip balms, it symbolises everything the brand stands for—luxuriant, indulgent and a timeless classic.
In 2012 Terry introduced her debut Haute Parfum collection working in collaboration with Michel Almairac. Each scent was composed in Grasse and celebrates the rare and the precious. Three years later Terry launched the Expert range—each and every product a multi-tasking, dual action makeup staple combining both the formula and the tool for its application. Terry has always understood the time pressures on modern women rushing between their many roles in life, so created this easy to use collection which still offers a professional finish. In September 2017 the Expert range was expanded to offer even more convenience for women on the go.

Mario Badescu spent many years doing research in his laboratory and testing his innovative products in his salon, and the result of his hard work can still be seen today. Our botanically-based skin care line remains as Mario crafted it so many years ago, expertly designed to keep your skin luscious and beautiful. We pride ourselves in still offering the same personal, customized skin care treatments that were Mario’s patent offerings.
Our insistence upon holding true to Mario Badescu’s vision is the reason why celebrities around the world still love our products and our facials, and why hundreds of other men and women who appreciate how important healthy skin can be still look to Mario Badescu for their skin care needs.
Likewise, we have maintained Mario’s dedication to offering our skin care products at exceptional prices. We believe that everybody deserves good skin care, and have crafted our prices accordingly. Using simple, no-frills packaging is part of the reason we are able to do this. While other companies are concerned with fancy, shiny wrappers and bottles, the packaging of our products is not as important as the products inside them. This allows us to focus on providing a quality product at an affordable price.
And so we offer our mission, the same vision that Mario Badescu had when he opened his salon over 40 years ago:
To brighten up the world with our time-tested skin care products and treatments, in order to provide customers with the beautiful and healthy skin every human being is entitled to.

Every Jack Black product is carefully formulated from the very finest ingredients. Many, like plant extracts, herbs and healing botanicals come from time-tested natural remedies. But that’s only part of what makes Jack Black products work so well. We also incorporate the latest technologies to create formulas that are not only effective, but also lightweight and non-greasy. Fragrance-free, colorant-free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free and dermatologist tested, Jack Black products take a refreshingly effective, honest and natural approach to helping you look and feel your best.
Most men prefer to spend as little time as possible in front of a mirror. At Jack Black, we get that. So we create products as convenient and multi-functional as they are effective. A shave cream that also softens and conditions your skin. A face moisturizer with sunscreen built-in. A face, hair and body wash in one. Our skin care products are formulated to be easy to wear, fast absorbing and allergen free. So they go on quick, clean and comfortable with no primping required. Perhaps that’s why so many women tell us that they, too, have come to appreciate the simple effectiveness of Jack Black products.
Some benefits are immediate, like exhilarating natural scents and skin that instantly looks and feels clean and revitalized. Some last throughout the day, offering a feeling of freshness and confidence in the way you look. Other results emerge over time as the anti-aging benefits of healthy skin keep you looking youthful for years. At Jack Black we put our greatest effort, and take our greatest pride, in creating products you can trust to perform. Products that work as hard as you do.
Back in 2000, Curran Dandurand, her husband Jeff, and Emily Dalton founded Jack Black as a response to a void in the skin care marketplace. At that time few, if any, companies were creating premium quality, high-performance, easy-to-use grooming products for men. The name Jack Black, coined before the popularity of the comic actor, embodied the comfort and approachability of a good friend. And the packaging was designed to appeal to a masculine aesthetic. Jack Black quickly found a home in the most distinguished prestige retailers and is now the # 1 men’s skincare brand in the US*.
