For a warm-and-spicy fragrance with a more exotic air, try Histoire de Parfums Noir Patchouli.

Histoires de Parfums

Birchbox Breakdown

Without a doubt, 1969 was a year of earnest passion. Kurt Vonnegut published Slaughterhouse Five. The Stonewall riots erupted. And don’t get us started on that moon landing. This sweet and subtle fragrance is an homage to the era, with a blend of spicy top notes—and a warm chocolate base—that will get your blood pumping.

How it Works

Thoughtfully inspired by the spirit of the ‘60s, this warm and complex fragrance is a date-night champ. Top notes of peach lead to mid notes of clove and cardamom, followed by a warm, musky base of patchouli, chocolate, and coffee.

How to Use

Spritz each wrist once, but don’t rub them together: Mashing the fragrance will disrupt the complex formula.

Alcohol Denat., Parfum (fragrance), Aqua (water), Linalook, Citronellol, Eugenol, Cinnamal, Limonene

Great scent
Sampled

This scent sat really well on my skin and managed to give a good smell without being overpowering. I have received complements when wearing it and will be sure to add it to my cologne repertoire!

A surprise!
Sampled

The sample was a little lighter than I would usually use and more floral, so I was initial put off. However, it definitely grew on me. Found myself using it when I wore flower print shirts or mixing with other wood note cologne. Not sure if i will take the plunge for a full size yet... But interesting scent!

Nice masculine scent that makes the wear feel both sexy and sophisticated. I really like this scent. I would definitely buy it if it was not so expensive.

Great

Great complex smell that can be worn by men and women. Nice blend of warm spice smell that isn't too musky and a lighter sweet floral scent

One of the best Histoires fragrances.
Sampled

I received another sample of Histoires in a previous BirchBox and really enjoyed the fragrance. I also was able to obtain six other samples in varying scents. Overall the line is very STRONG and really in-your-face. Therefore it isn't necessary to use any large amount, and the fragrance lasts. There is no smell of alcohol. However the line overall doesn't fit my taste and smells a bit too much like an older gentleman's cologne. This is probably the best because it is so fruity, but in turn it truthfully gives me a headache.

SO nice

If you're favorite spirit is gin than this is the product for you. The scent to me reminds me of the botanicals in a fine gin. Mmm

not so much
Sampled

I didn't care for this scent. It was much too heavy and complicated. Also the packaging for it was obnoxious.
