Himalaya fragrance notes

Reviews of Himalaya

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.

Amazing fragrance Creed Himalaya, however.. the longevity is very poor on me it lasts for 1 hour only.. after that it fades away into a skin scent and fades away... it is a very expensive fragrance and especially this one is not worth the money.. because of longevity.

But if you got money enough.. and you collect them? Just buy it

My wife likes this on me but I'm not too keen and always turn to my Aventus, which, incidentally, she says gives her a headache! (at least the early bottles did).
It's a fresh fragrance that has little longevity or sillage on my skin after the first 30 mins.

Holiday scents #1 - Creed Himalaya

Goes on very faint at first, with little to report in the way of any notes at all. (To be fair, I have noticed something similar in scents of a comparable character and note profile in the hot conditions under which I am testing this "holiday" series.) However, after a short time, the scent reappears and its true characteristics emerge.

Himalaya is of a Terre d'Hermes type for the first several hours, all citrus and musk with a slightly sour edge. This, though, has more of an aquatic feel about it, and the best appreciation I can express is that it is an "aquatic musk" type, with some added citrus, possibly verbena and a touch of vetiver. Later on, well into the drydown, the whole ensemble becomes smoother and more civilised, with everything approaching a rough edge wearing off.

Given the non-existent opening, I applied the entirety of a 1ml sample at a single go, and this seemed not to be over the top. Himalaya simply doesn't seem to be something you can over-apply too easily.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting to like this given my scepticism towards the Creed range, but this is really rather pleasant, and given the universal acclaim from the Funwithfrags family, this has thereby earned a thumbs up. Really, it's not that different in an olfactory sense from a hundred things at all points of the market, but the quality is evident and given the chance, comes to the fore. I'm not sure I will ever be flush enough to work down a wish-list to the point where I will buy this, but a good effort nonetheless.

It' s expensive and nothing special. Simular to Tenere ( Paco Rabanne ) . Not worth the price. Overrated.
