Reviews of Himalaya

Tied for my second favorite Creed after Aventus with Green Irish Tweed.

I love it.

Crisp, almost metallic freshness.

Great performance.

Pleasant and clean, like a floral soap but has a spicy citrus note in the opening. The woody notes give it that masculine edge but I get a lot of floral from Himalaya even though I don't see it in the notes. Soft projection but not a skin scent. I find that a little body heat helps with projection a lot because it does seem to hang around all day on me but then projection really amps up if I'm moving a lot.

Smells fresh, cold, clean, and modern.
Not overpowering nor cloying.
Go for Aventus or GIT for special occasions, as Himalaya is not groundbreakingly unique, but definitely a safe scent for daily wear.

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)
