Reviews of Himalaya

Great stuff. It reminds me of a slightly subdued and soapy version of Silver Mountain Water (which I love).

There are a bunch of Creeds that do not smell any different from one another after a couple of hours, and Himalaya is one of those. Himalaya employs some citrus and creates brief 'chilly' moment of freshness. It is also very safe, which means that no aromatic or herbal overtones are present. A soft, fresh, woody phase follows that has a hint of sweetness, and this is the point from which onwards it is similar to Millesime Imperial, Green Irish Tweed and Silver Mountain Water. There is a metallic aspect, especially in the beginning, which is similar to that of Silver Mountain Water, but Himalaya doesn't have any of the 'shrill' demeanour of the former. The dry down is woody-musky, with bare hints of sandalwood and ambergris.

Himalaya is competent and never vulgar. However, it is not as compelling as Green Irish Tweed, and is rather generic, and both sillage and duration are slightly less than that of Green Irish Tweed. Its lack of any distinguishing character is perhaps attributable to the fact that it seems the ideal fragrance to market to casual purveyors of faux-luxury. The bottle is hideous.

2.5/5 (neutral)

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.
