    Question Any fragrances similar to Himalaya/Cédre?

    I really enjoy Himalaya. Someone described it as a blast of cold mountain air...and I agree. I like its freshness and the fact that it's not too sweet.

    I also like Cédre by Parfums 06130 because it reminds me of Himalaya.

    Can someone please recommend a similar fragrance...fresh, dry and not too sweet? (I heard XS is similar but I don't have the urge to try it for some reason) - perhaps because I am a snob and prefer niche scents : ) Please help me out if you can.

    Silver Mountain Water by Creed is very similar to Himalaya...but you might not want another Creed...

    You really should, it's a very nice scent and doesn't smell cheap at all. I prefer it to Himalaya, for what it's worth. But other than that try Chanel's Platinum Egoiste for something similar to Himalaya. It's not niche, but approaches niche prices.

    XS truly IS superb, and a fraction of Himalaya in terms of cost. Give it a shot.

    D&G By and Very Valentino are worth a try. Not identical, but you might like them.

    Thank you for the responses. I will give XS a try and will sample SMW as soon as I get a chance. D&G By and Very Valentino will also be on my list of fragrances to try next.
