Histoires de Parfums 1969 - 2 fl oz

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.

I loved the little box that this sample came in. At first, I didn't like the smell, but it grew on me. It is a little strong, so when I use, I make sure to spritz in the air and walk thru before putting clothes on, otherwise I feel like the smell lingers a little too much.

Can't decide if I like it or not
Sampled

I absolutely love the concept of this brand, and I really hope I receive more samples from this company! However, as far as 1969... I honestly can't decide if I like it or not! The first time I used it, I absolutely hated it. I thought it was foul smelling. After a couple of hours, I realized it didn't smell bad after all. Like it had changed after being on my skin for a while. And that's what it does every subsequent time I wear it. Smells nasty going on (Is it lime? Patchoulli? Something else? I don't know, but it's heavy and masculine and weird), but then evolves into a very pleasant and almost entirely different scent! It's the strangest thing I have ever seen, but this is obviously a very interesting and complex perfume. I might consider buying it if it wasn't so expensive! And I can't wait to receive another sample from them!

This fragrance is sublime, smoky and sexy. It's deep notes and unisex ability is just the thing for sophisticated but not too feminine ladies.

Smells just okay.
Sampled

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...
Sampled

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.
