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.

This is one of the best colognes I have ever smelled. I love how everyone notices it on me and it lasts all day!

Great cologne
Sampled

Out of all the cologne samples I have received in my boxes (one in every box, six boxes total) this one is far and away my favorite. The scent is masculine and woody, my wife absolutely loves it. It lasts a very long time and I get notes of it throughout the day. Great product, I would recommend it without hesitation.

Great

The smell of this fragrance is unbelievable. Hands down my favorite smell to wear. It may be just a personal preference, but this is worth the try. I've never been happier wearing a fragrance.

Smells nice, won't use it
Sampled

I wish I could completely turn off fragrance samples, but since I cannot, our household has found an effective use for them by lighting spritzing the bathroom tissue rolls so when they spin, the room smells nice. I'm not kidding. This scent was great for that, nice and subtly masculine. But I love my normal cologne and won't change.

Good Smell Expensive

Very nice smell that lasts a long time. The price is too high for this brand in my opinion.

A little overpowering
Sampled

I first put on the cologne and liked the smell, it was a little spicy and not too pungent. However, after a couple minutes I started to notice the smell intensified. Not to a point of annoyance but it was definitely more noticeable than subtle. The price point is also a little too much for the full product.

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.

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.
