    Default Himalaya by Creed, Outstanding Longevity!!!

    Today I wore Himalaya and after 11 hours it is still very present on my skin. Considering how many complaints people have on Creed Longevity this is great.

    I have 4 more Creeds and this one beats them all when it comes to longevity.

    Himalaya - 11+
    Virgin Island Water - 7+
    Milassime Imperial - 5-6 hours
    Green Irish Tweed - 5-6 hours
    Aventus - 5-6 hours

    If you own more than one Creed, which is long lasting for you.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    I get 3-4 hours with Millesime Imperial and 6-7 hours with Green Irish Tweed, so I'm not impressed with Creed in the longevity department. Himilaya was next on my list of Creeds to buy (or Silver Mountain Water) but I'm skeptical of the longevity. Does Himilaya last long on everyone else?

    I wore Himalaya today as well. And, as I expected, the longevity was great. I usually do four sprays and get 8-10 hours with it.

    I also have SMW and the longevity is about 4-6 hours.

    How does Himilaya smell? I heard it smells generic. Is there anything similar?

    Soap. Manly soap. Kinda generic. It's alright, but nowhere near as good as Aventus, GIT or MI. In my opinion that is.

    I get 12 hours of so out of Aventus, 8-10 from GIT, and about 6-8 from MI.

    Thanks! Next question: Himilaya or Silver Mountain Water in terms of smell and longevity?

    p.s. Sorry to threadjack!

    Although, from what I've read, many do see the similarity between Himalaya and Paco XS, I didn't notice it. IMO, Himalaya is far better and a higher class fragrance.

    Both SMW and Himalaya are one of my favorite fragrances. I like the smell of SMW more than Himalaya. However, Himalaya beats SMW in longevity. If I were you, I'd buy samples of both from eBay or The Perfumed Court.

    Himalaya is a great fragrance with so fresh and soapy smell which i like it so much.
    I usually get 6-8h from it.
    I didn't test SMW yet but If you like soapy smell go for Himalaya but if you like herbal fragrances, SMW is for you.

    To the OP; santal is my longest lasting Creed. I adore himalaya more and more each time i wear it. My skiN usuLly absorbs colognes so i get a solid 6-7 hrs from Himalaya. Couple less hours than santal!

    I get 4-5 hours out of Himalaya... I wish it would stay longer on my skins. I get the most female (and the occasional male) compliments from wearing this scent..

    BTW.. I have read the comparisons between Himalaya and Poco VS and I cant smell it?

    I get killer longevity with Himalaya. I have been able to to smell if after 9 hours. I will get whiffs of it up to 13 hours after spraying. I normally give one blast to the back of the neck and I can leave a scent trail for hours as well.

    I get about eight hours from this one and I can wear it anytime and anywhere a really versatile scent.

    This one lasts 8+ hrs on me with no problem close to my skin, decent sillage but not on the strong end of the scale.

    Honestly, they have similarities, but in terms of longevity Himalaya is sure winner. But I like Silver Mountain Water little bit better because it's now to me and Himalaya reminds of Pacco Raban XS, which I had in high school. Although it's a great scent.

    This and GIT are the longest-lasting Creeds on me. However, I agree that Himalaya's longevity is good, too. I got a solid 5 hours out of it (if I get at least 5 hours out of any scent, I'm happy).

    I can't believe that you are getting only one hour from VIW.

    yup Aventus is definitely a peakaboo scent that dissappears to the nose quickly while others can easily still smell it...

    Ho are you measuring longevity?
    Are you bringing your wrist or sprayed area up to your nose?

    I was a bit dismayed myself. I'd sprayed it on my wrist at one end of town, and by the time I got back to the office less than an hour later, I couldn't detect it at all. I had noticed it weakening very quickly on the way back. However, a couple of other scents under test were still there, doing fine. I posted about that result here at the time.
