What it is: Himalaya is the embodiment of pure confidence and rugged masculinity.
Fragrance story: Fusing the power of man and nature, Himalaya was created to commemorate master perfumer Olivier Creed’s daring climb in the beautiful but treacherous Himalayan mountains. A seductive scent of citrus mixes with warmer notes of sandalwood and cedarwood to recreate the snowcapped Tibetan landscape. It is presented in an attractive metallic bottle, co-designed with Erwin Creed, that resembles a climber’s canteen and the silvery look of alpine ice.
Style: Woody, fresh.
– Top: begamot, grapefruit, lemon, mandarin.
– Middle: pinkberries, nutmeg, cedarwood, sandalwood, vetiver, pepper.
– Base: ambergris, musk, tonka bean.
The Creed Private Collection, which consists of five scents, was originally designed for five Hollywood legends during Hollywood's golden years. The collection also includes classic editions, which are fragrances that had long ago captured the attention and patronage of aristocrats all over the world.
Today Creed’s Private Collection perfumes are available to the public. Among its other fragrance lines, there is Creed Universal and Creed Private Collection Universal, which are unisex fragrances. For women a few scents to note are 2000 Fleurs as well as Fleurissimo, which was commissioned by Prince Rainer III for his new wife, Grace Kelly. One of the newest creations on the market is Irisia.
For men a mainstay is Original Vetiver and Silver Mountain Water, which was personally created by the current master perfumer and direct descendant, Olivier Henry Creed. Green Irish Tweed cologne is also known to be a favorite among Hollywood men.
All Creed fragrances are grouped into two categories: Millesime (more concentrated) and Eaux de Toilette (less concentrated). In upholding its past, the design house still guards its formulations with the utmost secrecy, uses the traditional method of infusion and refuses to use synthetic essences. The business remains in the control of the family.

Collin Reese –
I received a sample of this with my last purchase, much to my pleasant surprise. On my skin this fragrance is definitely masculine, with hints of sweetness. I wouldn’t really recommend it for someone my age (20 M) but for an older gentleman this is a truly classy fragrance you can’t go wrong with.
Not my favorite creed smell, however I’ve never smelled a substandard creed fragrance, it’s still very well worth the money
