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.

Very good but...
Sampled

I was very pleased with this cologne and liked the smell of it very much. The smell lasted and didn't fade after 15 minutes. Although I find it to be extremely similar to Viktor and Rolf's Spice bomb. This being $125 a bottle and Spice Bomb being $75 I would get the spice bomb. If the price point was a little lower I'd be more inclined to purchase.

Really nice
Sampled

I really enjoy the fragrance. The sample packaging is an added bonus as I like the mini-spray.

Good Winter Cologne
Sampled

Solid cologne for winter but too strong for me to wear in warmer weather...

This is a very good product if it matches your requirements for smell and that kind of thing. It's not too loud or at least I don't think so. Everybody's body chemistry is different. Gotta get other people's opinions when wearing a cologne etc. then decide for yourself cause you are up and close, front and center...

Fantastic masculine scent. I typically go for very clean/light scents, but the bergamont and juniper notes definitely hooked me. For me, it also rounds out in the end to be sort of sweeter, almost cinnamon-y. Wore on a date and got multiple compliments on it, definitely going to pick up the full size.

Bug Spray?
Sampled

Although the scent does get weaker, the initial smell of this cologe is very akin to bug spray. I'd rather not walk around smelling like OFF! This one just wasnt for me.

Subtle
Sampled

Like all the sample colognes I have received, this one also has a nice subtle smell that isn't over bearing. Just a spritz on the wrist and a dab behind the ear lobes does it. Have had a few nice compliments about it.
