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. Featuring top notes of Italian bergamot, juniper, and black pepper, a heart of orange blossom, Florentine iris, and cinnamon, and a base of vetiver, vanilla, and yellow amber, this is a cultured cologne for a cultured man. Papa would approve.

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.

Quality Cologne
Sampled

I really enjoy this cologne! It is not overly strong, yet the scent is both pleasant and masculine...my fiance says that it is "soft" but she always comments when I wear it and asks what it is. She also always seems surprised when I tell her that it is this cologne as she didn't like the scent smelled straight from a piece of paper.

It is a bit different, but it makes a great weekday cologne and transitions nicely into a relaxed evening. It is an informal, daytime scent to me.

A good alternative to my every day cologne

This scent says, "Don't let this well groomed, stylish appearance fool you, I am willing to get down and dirty at the drop of a hat."
or
"I know I look well groomed and polished, but I can pitch a tent and build a fire in a skinny minute."

Amazing scent.

I love this scent. My wife loves this scent. All my coworkers love this scent. It's a little pricy but worth every penny.
