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

Smells just okay.

At first I didn't like this at all. I couldn't really tell what notes this item had. Its a little to spicy for my liking. I like perfumes that are more floral.

Didn't care for the smell. My husband didn't care for it either.

Not for me
Sampled

There certainly was a lot that happened in 1969...I got married and I'm glad I did not have this scent to make my way to the alter! It is not a scent that appeals to me, it might be the chocolate that turns me away. I want to eat chocolate, not wear it!

My signature scent now

Love this scent. It's really timeless, classy and can be worn all year round. Very vanilla forward but a grown up, expensive vanilla. The packaging and the whole vibe is also pretty perfect in my book. I can't buy a perfume if the design of the bottle isn't lovely as well as the scent and this has both.

Yikes...

Fragrances are quite difficult to judge because it's all based on preference. You can take the same perfume, apply it to two different people and get slightly different versions of the perfume. Neither is good or bad. Just different.

With that said, I didn't enjoy this scent at all. The notes listed were promising. However, like cooking, just because you like the ingredients separately doesn't necessarily mean they will go well together.

Just because I don't like it doesn't mean you won't. No harm, no foul. Smell it for yourself.

Great winter scent!
Sampled

I am not a fan of patchouli. At. All. So when I read the description I was ready to hate it. It's great! Especially for a light musky scent for the winter. Not over powering and long lasting. I love it!

Strong at first
Sampled

This is totally overwhelming at first but it does mellow out. It's very "different"-- not your typical flower or vanilla "feminine" smell. A nice change but prob wouldn't buy it.

Not a fan of the 60's

Not a fan of really anything from the 60's and I didn't care for the scent of this perfume either. My daughter however did like the scent so I gave it to her!

Nice perfume. Good quality, but didn't like the smell. Would not buy again, maybe a different scent from the same brand

NASTY

This smelled like medicine and hippies. It was horrible. I couldn't even give the sample away. The awful eucalyptus smell was something from a muscle rub.
