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.

Awesome

I really like the smell of this stuff and so does the gf, it has a strong scent and is very mature, something that an older person would wear. Super expensive and I don't wear cologne much, but I will wear this on occasion.

Light scent

I liked this fragrance, it has a light scent and isn't overpowering. Not too noticeable.

Smells fantastic!
Sampled

When you first put this fragrance on, it's a little strong. But once it settles down, you get a fantastic, manly scent of a clean sophistication that indeed beckons to the times of Hemingway. I am a little upset that the only bottle available at Birchbox is $125. If you go to Histoires de Parfums' website, you can buy 0.5 oz bottles for $36. Furthermore, since the number system makes it confusing as to which fragrance smells like what, you can also buy six samples from Histoires de Parfums' website for $20.

This little cologne sample is a favorite of my girlfriend! She thinks it is manly and much better than all those "fru fru" colognes out there!

Not for me
Sampled

As someone with relatively sensitive skin, this fragrance was a bit too powerful for me. I try to be a bit more subtle with my fragrane choices - sometimes just opting for Amber oil. This unfortunately is not something I would put into my collection.

too weak

This has a good fragrance but it is not strong enough.

Old man-y

For the price this cologne just doesn't make sense. I really can't think of an occasion to wear this fragrance. It's biting (which can be nice), but the smell is of a grandfather unfortunately.

This is a very nice and subtle scent that surprisingly never gets old
