HIMALAYA by CREED 120ml

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.

Launched in 2002, it opens with grapefruit, bergamot & lemon. Its heart is oriental sandalwood & gunpowder and the base is cedar & musk, fixed with ambergris.

Presented in a metallic bottle, co-designed with son Erwin Creed, this fragrance is the embodiment of pure confidence and rugged masculinity, resembling a climber’s canteen and the silvery look of alpine ice.

Millésime is a term used to describe the vintage of champagne. For it to be so labelled, it must come from a single vintage, not a blend. Creed’s Millésime fragrances contain the highest percentage of natural essences to be found in the French perfume industry.

Oliver Creed created this masculine fragrance in remembrance of his Tibetan mountain-climbing expedition. Himalaya conveys the magnificence, beauty, power and eternity of the unapproachable mountains with snow-covered peaks.
The flacon for Himalaya is unique among the Creed collection for its metallic exterior, which resembles both a mountaineer’s canteen as well as the shiny surface of ice on mountain rocks.

The fresh, citrusy opening offers notes of grapefruit, bergamot and lemon. The fragrance takes an oriental turn with a heart featuring sandalwood, all on a base of musk, ambergris and cedarwood.

ALL PERFUMES ARE FAR FROM EQUAL

We offer NZ’s best prices for a discerning market. Enjoy prices that are a cut above bargain basement and well below department stores. Our fragrances are the genuine article, but it is the integrity or quality of the perfume that matters. There are many reasons why perfumes spoil, often well before they are purchased by the consumer. Heat is the biggest culprit (that we term baked, like wine).

FROM WHOLESALER TO RETAILER

Many perfume discounters use sea freight for a month or so without climate control in a metal container ( New York to Auckland) plus however long they sit on the dock. At Designer Direct we only use Air Freight. Costly but your nose will love you.

CLIMATE CONTROL

The cheaper the fragrance, the less of a bargain you’re getting, and the more likely it was stored with a lack of climate-controlled warehousing. Both our NZ stores where we ship orders from have climate control.
