Old-world Paris was the inspiration for this complex fragrance. 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, it’s a cultured cologne for a cultured man.

1899 transcending time
Sampled

Never heard if this brand before but I am intrigued to see what other fragrances they have based on this one. The best way to describe it is a classic, timeless scent that is reminiscent of days past brought into a modern era. It goes on smelling like cedar and woodsy with a sweet undertone.

Nice scent, but a little too spicy

I have really enjoyed (and purchased) a number of BB scent samples (especially English Laundry), but as much as I liked this scent, it held up as a little too spicy for me (and my better half) I'll finish the sample, but stick to other scents.

Great manly scent
Sampled

I'm very picky about cologne and always looking something that smells masculine without being too woodsy. This is a strong cologne without being overwhelming. Great smell, great staying power. One of the few colognes that my girlfriend loved on me.

1899
Sampled

I'd never heard of this brand of cologne. But it has become a favorite scent. With vetiver, vanilla, orange blossom and other manly scents, every man should have this in their back pocket.

Classic smell
Sampled

Reminds me of my great grandfather. A sophisticated scent that doesn't come off as anything less than manly. At first a little strong but mellows well without fading completely.

One of My Favorite Men's Fragrances--Ever
Sampled

There's something about this cologne that is both mysterious and alluring. It is earthy and sensual without being overbearing or musky. I've received more complements on my cologne when wearing 1899 than almost any other scent in my collection--and that's significant!

Smells amazing.
Sampled

Reminds me of spice bomb but not as spicy. It's a great smell for date night or just out and about. I keep it in the car in case I forget to spray something on my way out of the house
