Old-world Paris was the inspiration for this complex fragrance. Featuring top notes of Italian bergamot, juniper, and black pepper, a heart of orange blossom, Florentine iris, and cinnamon, and a base of vetiver, vanilla, and yellow amber, it’s a cultured cologne for a cultured man.

1899 transcending time
Sampled

Never heard if this brand before but I am intrigued to see what other fragrances they have based on this one. The best way to describe it is a classic, timeless scent that is reminiscent of days past brought into a modern era. It goes on smelling like cedar and woodsy with a sweet undertone.

Great manly scent
Sampled

I'm very picky about cologne and always looking something that smells masculine without being too woodsy. This is a strong cologne without being overwhelming. Great smell, great staying power. One of the few colognes that my girlfriend loved on me.

Nice scent, but a little too spicy

I have really enjoyed (and purchased) a number of BB scent samples (especially English Laundry), but as much as I liked this scent, it held up as a little too spicy for me (and my better half) I'll finish the sample, but stick to other scents.

Amazing
Purchased

Very "manly" scent without being heavy or musky. Very complex. Found my scent until the end of time! I get compliments every time I wear it.
