Histoires de Parfums 1828 - 2 fl oz

As a tribute to Jules Verne, the father of science fiction, this fresh, maritime fragrance is a departure from the norm. Its vivid scent is inspired by the sights and smells of Nantes, the seaside port town where the author was born in 1828. And like Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days, this is a cologne that’s on the go, evolving from pine-y to peppery—minty to musky.

This is a citrusy fragrance with a strong pine note with hints of mint and musk. To be honest, I was underwhelmed at first spray, but once it started to dry down, it developed into something amazing. It is balmy and sophisticated and can easily become someone's signature scent because it is great for all occasions at any time of year.

Too subtle for me
Sampled

I felt like after an hour I could no longer smell this on me, too subtle. I prefer something a little stronger and muskier.

Liked the warm undertones with a hint of citrus. Got several compliments. It's pricey but high quality.

Fresh, Clean, Bright Fragrance
Sampled

This brand's scent profiles don't usually appeal to me as much as other brands I regularly purchase and wear. However, this fragrance was a departure from the usual with a clean, bright, fresh scent that seemed great for summer. I wish this were a small spray bottle and slightly larger sample, but I appreciated it nonetheless.

Unique sent with staying power
Sampled

To me the cedar citrus and nutmeg come through very nicely. I have worn it for only two days and have received several complements on it. also excellent staying power, two small spritzes and i was good for twelve hours or so. If you like woodsy-earthy scents i would highly recommend it.

Five stars! Another excellent scent
Sampled

I could spend a fortune on cologne. This sample is another reason why. Another clean scent from Birchbox.
