Histoires de Parfums 1899 - 2 fl oz

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.

Serious Business

This cologne sample came in my husband's box. It's interesting. Definitely potent. Once it calms down a little bit it's nice. For example when he puts it on in the morning it is over-powering. Like I'm downstairs making coffee and it knocks me down. However, when he gets home at the end of the day it smells really nice. Deep warm notes. The name captures the scent well. So, if you're looking for a bold fragrance this is it. If you are looking middle-of-the-road maybe give it a shot if you dab on the teeniest tiniest drop. This stuff goes a long way.

The least bad
Sampled

I don't like fragrances, but I liked this. Not enough to wear it, but enough to not immediately throw away the sample.

Like Spice Bomb but better
Sampled

The scent reminded me a bit of Spice Bomb but not as aggressive and more sophisticated. Great woodsy, spicy smell. Am definitely going to purchase.

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.

More fall than spring
Sampled

This fragrance brought me back to the holiday season, which unfortunately was a surprise on a sunny spring day. This sample reminds me of holiday food, spiced smells and trying to remain as warm as possible. I think I will revisit the scent when the season fits the smell.

Subtle

This isn't a very overbearing cologne, which is great. The scent is subtle but distinguishable.
