    Default Creed Himalaya vs Creed Santal Imperial

    I adore Creed Himalaya and it is my favorite scent (eventhough its longevity is a bit problematic) but i like to know the pons and cons of Santal Imperial comparing to Himalaya.. Will appreciate if you recommend another scent which is in the same line with Himalaya..

    If you like Himalaya you will love Silver Mountain Water which I think is better than Himalaya , Santal Imperial is a creamy type of smell if you do not like that type of fragrance then maybe it is not for you. Personally I think Virgin Island is the best fresh smell and Millesime being the most versatile fresh fragrance.

    These are totally different and it will be like comparing apples and oranges , each scent needs to be assessed by it's individual pros and cons. Himalaya for me is a soapy white musk scent that I find can be worn all year around and in most situations. Pacco Rabbane XS is like Himalaya but not as good imo but if price is a issue it would make a good alternative.

    Santal Imperial to me come's across as a old school take on Sandalwood that I find stuffy and austere, it's not a bad scent but I think their are better ones on the market.

    Love Santal Imperial, but it is definitely not something that replaces Himalaya in any way. Agreed - apples and oranges. Maybe even apples and electrical outlets!

    By Vetiver, do you mean the 1948 Vetiver, or the newer one called Vetiver Original? If you mean the 1948, I'd vote for that one above the others you list.
