I've been wanting this Creed for a while. Millesime Imperial's longevity left much to be desired. Green Irish Tweed is great, but it's not....great if you know what I mean. (Sorry to GIT fans) I decided to give Creed one more chance and it did not disappoint. I saw it for a great price and ordered my 4 oz flask from Amazon. I got a legitimate bottle but this time around I got one of the Arabic ones. It has a sticker with Arabic writing on the bottom and "Toilet Water" written on the back along with the lot number (which matches the bottom of the box btw). This does not smell like a Creed to me. It smells like something Calvin Klein or Nautica could have made. It's very soapy, fresh, and generic, but at the same time, classy. Within the first hour of wearing Himalaya, I got complimented by a pretty cashier. She said "You smell nice." She could smell me even with the counter separating us, so it does project very well at first. I got around 6 hours tonight, but I suspect I'll get better next time around. While not as beautiful as MI, Himalaya has already proven to be a compliment getter so far and a very nice smelling cologne. The bottle and box are both gorgeous. I was torn between SMW and I've smelled SMW and found it be too similar to MI, including the poor longevity so Himalaya was my choice and I bought it completely blind. So far I'm very happy with Himalaya.
