Himalaya fragrance notes

Reviews of Himalaya

Impressive smell, bright, fresh, zesty, pure...

I am impressed by the smell of this one. I've now tried a few Creed fragrances and think that Himalaya can compete with the famous ones. I get an opening of juniper berry and bergamot (with citrus: presumably grapefruit and lemon). The sandalwood, ambergris and cedar wood make a great base. It seems simple, yet it delivers a really good punch and is interesting. I don't have a point of reference to compare it to designer fragrances, but I will say that I am yet to be disappointed by a Creed fragrance. I also get the inspiration for this fragrance as the mountains of the Himalayas. This smells like how you would imagine iron rich mineral water from a mountain stream to smell like. Ultimately, I do think it's a good fragrance, and again, as with all Creed fragrances, it's up to you to decide whether to invest and purchase or not.

Meh. High quality soapy scent, it's been done 10,000 times before. If you want to smell like a fresh bar of soapy soap, Himalaya is a high quality way to do it. But how many people really want to smell like soap?

Dated concept. 6/10. Well executed for what it is but "what it is" is an old, tired idea.

SMW is far superior, even though Himalaya has much better longevity and silage.

An unremarkable woody-musky-citrus. Creed would do well to vault this rubbish to avoid further comparisons to drugstore cheapies.

Almost love it, but seems to veer close to GIT, which I do love, so no need to invest in both. Try each before buying, as you may decide the mountains are better than the tweed. Himalaya is truly a wonderful scent, though. I simply prefer Green Irish Tweed.

it used to be a mysterious fresh and cool mandarin sandalwood sillage scent, as of january 2017 i just get powder powder and powder with aldehides. very stuffy, theres a blue note i detect but overall it has been IFRA reformulated and or synthetic or cheap sandalwood is being masked by the ultra powder effect. Creed is going down the tubes, and the nosed consumer is the first to tell.

Even green irish tweed has been tamed in every aspect of what it is. its as if you have a tiger in a 4ft by 4ft cage. its a beast neutered and blinded with its legs cut in half and tongue cut out. ifra has destroyed the contemporary fragrance world. MODERN DAY PROHIBITION. i look forward to making a speakeasy for forbidden scents and oils.

Overpriced. Overrated. Synthetic. Lasts for barely two hours. Not only is the scent itself nothing special, but the execution is awful. The only aspect that's above average is the projection, and with a scent this mediocre that's not exactly a saving grace.
