Fragrance description Creed Himalaya
Creed Himalaya is a woody citrus fragrance for men. This Eau de Parfum comes from the workshop of a unique luxury, dynastic and privately owned niche perfume brand. As well as an exceptional tradition passed down from father to son since 1760 and a celebrated history (more than 250 years of creating exceptional fragrances for royal families and other exacting customers with refined tastes), the Creed brand can also boast the use of classic techniques when processing the rare materials selected for the production of its unrivalled perfumes.
The Himalaya Eau de Parfum is one of the true gems of the Creed brand. It is a joint project by Olivier Creed, a leading perfumer from the sixth generation of the Creed dynasty, and Erwin Creed, from the seventh generation. The inspiration for this highly masculine fragrance comes from a mountaineering expedition to Tibet. Creed Himalaya displays the grandeur, beauty, might and eternal character of the inaccessible mountains with their snow-covered peaks.
The aromatic composition of the Creed Himalaya Eau de Parfum opens with fresh citrus notes of grapefruit, Calabrian bergamot and Sicilian lemons in the head. The heart contains sandalwood and the base consists of notes of musk, ambergris and cedar. The overall aroma, which combines the dominant citrus and woody aspects with an impressive touch of musk and ambergris and surprising balsamic and powdery attributes, can best be described as a sparklingly clear fragrance characterised by uplifting freshness.
The Creed Himalaya Eau de Parfum will be especially appreciated by men who like fresh woody citrus fragrances. It will appeal to those who love multilayered, masterfully composed perfumes with hidden depths and, of course, to everybody who appreciates quality and luxury to a truly extraordinary extent. Himalaya is suitable for day and evening wear throughout the year. It provides its wearer with extreme crystal-clear freshness and helps to emphasise his masculine side.
The perfumes from the Creed brand are attractive not only thanks to their enchanting fragrances, but also their exceptional and elegantly beautiful packaging. As is the case with many Creed perfumes, the extremely stylish and luxurious box of Himalaya also carries the word “millesime”, which is a hallmark of quality. It indicates that the very best ingredients from the given year were used in the production of the perfume. The wonderful metallic flacon resembles the sparkling icy surface of a mountain cliff. Try this perfume from a unique dynastic brand and you will fall in love with the fragrance inspired by a mountaineering expedition to the Himalayas.

About the brand Creed
Creed fragrances | Creed is the king of perfume and the perfume of kings. For more than 250 years, the brand has been creating extraordinary fragrances for royal families and other customers of exquisite taste. The company was founded in 1760 by James Henry Creed and has been helmed by the family ever since.
Creed’s history is truly unique. Over the years, the perfume house has designed fragrances for many people of note including Queen Victoria, the emperor Franz Josef, Winston Churchill or JFK. These days, Creed is mostly known for its classic masculine fragrances that are favourited by celebrities like Robert De Niro or Sylvester Stallone.
But Creed still remains the perfume brand of royals and presidents (it’s a well known fact that both Michelle Obama and the Duchess of Cambridge wear Creed perfumes). The company now resides in France and operates in other countries including the US. In keeping with the long tradition, Creed still uses many of the old distilling methods and chooses the ingredients carefully to only include the very best that is available.
Creed’s fragrances are divided into categories for women and for men, but there are unisex perfumes as well. Among Creed’s most popular fragrances are Green Irish Tweed, a classic fougère created in 1985 by Olivier Creed, and Creed Aventus, inspired by the life of Napoleon Bonaparte.
Whichever Creed perfume you choose, you’ll get timeless beauty and a modern approach to traditional methods and values.
