    Default Creed Himalaya - Similar to Canali Men?

    So today at bloomingdales i got a chance to smell a bunch of creeds for the first time.

    So first thing lol i think GIT is much greener then cool water. it has a grassy/leafy and saltier drier smell.
    Is it better? thats a matter of personal taste.

    Anyway i smelled Himalaya and i find it great. I was so close to buy a bottle today, but i bought too much stuff today (fathers day and a relatives birthday)

    After smelling Himalaya both on paper and on me i thought it really smelled like something else, and that something else is Canali Men.

    I think i can smell that the creed got better ingredients but as far scent, i thought they both had a very similar leather base.

    BTW

    I was in a rush so i might have sprayed a different creed on me lol. im pretty sure it was Himalaya tho

    Hmm.. Can`t detect eny leather in Himalaya.. But it`s damn good! A fresh woody oriental that smells very sexy, elegant, and modern. One of my favourit Creeds. Longevity is good. Sillage is medium.

    Been wearing himalaya for a few years now and I always get attention when wearing it. Many people complain of longetivity issues with himalaya but I find it lasts over 8 hours on my skin. Could be worn all year round as well...

    I've been testing this one all week and I love it. It's my first Creed sampling and it is a delight, it's so rich and pleasurable. I've never smelled anything this expensive so I don't have anything else to compare it to. There is something in the top notes that reminds me of something I already have but I can't put my finger on it. It isn't Canali Men though becuase I've never smelled that.

    As long as we're bumping up an old thread... this is my main concern with Himalaya. I had a dab sample and though it took me a while, Himalaya won me over, but I'm not sure if it's bottle worthy for me yet because it didn't seem to last. I need to give it a thorough wearing a few times. I love the musk Creed uses in some of their scents, and it's definitely in Himalaya.

    6 year bump. Damn I feel like it was one of my first posts here haha.

    My experience with Himalayas has been iffy.

    the bottle I got smells kinda flat, unlike the ones I sampled and tested in the past.
    Seems to have a crazy batch variation

    Am I the only one that smells quite a resemblance to vintage Paco Rabanne XS? Granted my experience with both is limited to a couple of sniffs but there is an undeniable familiarity of accords when it comes to these two with the PR offering being a bit more rough and ready compared to the more billowy Himalaya.

    Look for older threads............PR XS and Creed Himalaya are indeed very often compared to each other!

    Personally don't get any similarity between the Creed and the Canali.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
