No.267 Himalaya - Oriental Woody Men's

£24.00
Bottle Size

This should be called "So Fresh & So Clean" With a heavily obvious amber dry down, citrusy instead of grassy, Himalaya has a luxury ivory hand soap feel. The opening of Himalaya is rather vibrant, offering a three-way waltz with dry bergamot, juicy lemon and sweet grapefruit. Supposedly you could connect the smell with all things pure and tranquil that are associated with the Himalaya mountains, except there is no harsh weather or fellow mountaineer's falling down the cliffs, it's a sunny day and the climb ahead is full of optimism. You will get around 6/7 hours performance with a 3 hours excellent projection... Making for an excellent staple in the spring and summer. Affable, likeable and very approachable, a fragrance that will take you a while to appreciate just how good it is as it takes you on a Tibetan expedition.

I'm entirely surprised that mint isn't mentioned as a scent note here, because the initial impression to me was a halfway between peppermint and spearmint, but not in an overpowering way. It's fresh and cooling - much like the top of a Himalayan...

I'm entirely surprised that mint isn't mentioned as a scent note here, because the initial impression to me was a halfway between peppermint and spearmint, but not in an overpowering way. It's fresh and cooling - much like the top of a Himalayan mountain would be, I presume! There is a citrus tone also which slowly dries into a woody, minty mid- to long-lasting fragrance. I could still smell this well into a 10 hour shift after 2 sprays on my top and 3 on my skin. Although the notes above list assorted citrus, to me there isn't one that stands out on its own; rather, it's an incredibly pleasant mix of all three which creates a rounded feel. Excellent projection and longevity, and although I haven't experienced the original Creed fragrance, from Fragrantica.com I'm led to believe that multiple re-applications are required to last as long as this did. I don't think I would be able to justify spending multi-hundreds of pounds when this is so good!
