For a fresh, ever-evolving scent inspired by Jules Verne, try Histoires de Parfums 1828.

Histoires de Parfums

Birchbox Breakdown

Ernest Hemingway, exemplar of all things craggy and masculine, was the inspiration for this complex fragrance—but don’t expect notes of rum and tobacco. This is a cultured fragrance for a cultured man. Papa would approve.

How it Works

This fragrance combines Mediterranean top notes of Italian bergamot, juniper, and black pepper blend, with heart notes of orange blossom, Florentine iris, and cinnamon, and a base of vetiver, vanilla, and yellow amber.

How to Use

Spritz on your wrists and neck—with restraint, like Hemingway’s prose.

Denat. Alcohol 96° (infected with 5g of phtalate ethyle per liter), éthanol, diethyl phtalate, Fragrance, Limonene, Coumarin, Linalool, Eugenol, Citronellol, Geraniol, Cinnamal, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Benzoate, Water

I love this scent on my husband. It is a little pricey but if you are looking for something nice to splurge on this scent is amazing.

My husband and I both love the smell of this fragrance! It can be worn for special occasions or day to day. We just wish the price was lower.

Super classy

Wow! Deffinately not an everyday type scent ... especially for the price... but the hints of tobacco and rum make a prominent impression when you first smell it and then leaves a sweet aroma to make anyone want to get closer for another wiff.

Love it!

I love it. Co-workers love it. I don't think I love it $125.00 a bottle though. Maybe offer it in a few different sizes that way there would be some pricing options.

I liked the fragence because it wasn't to strong and that it had an woody scent to it. I would buy it in a heart beat

I received this first as a sample in my boyfriend's Birchbox and it smelled so good and he loved it. So I HAD to buy it. Very glad that I did. This cologne lasts all day and the scent is amazing. Can't go wrong with this one!

Best scent ever!

This smells amazing on my husband. By far my favorite scent on him. I just wish the bottle didn't cost so much but the way this stuff smells I might just splurge and get it!
