For a fresh, ever-evolving scent inspired by Jules Verne, try Histoires de Parfums 1828.

Histoires de Parfums

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

This fragrance combines Mediterranean top notes of Italian bergamot, juniper, and black pepper blend, with heart notes of orange blossom, Florentine iris, and cinnamon, and a base of vetiver, vanilla, and yellow amber.

How to Use

Spritz on your wrists and neck—with restraint, like Hemingway’s prose.

Denat. Alcohol 96° (infected with 5g of phtalate ethyle per liter), éthanol, diethyl phtalate, Fragrance, Limonene, Coumarin, Linalool, Eugenol, Citronellol, Geraniol, Cinnamal, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Benzoate, Water

Great smell

I am a very picky person with my colognes and don't change them frequently. I usually wear The One and this one is actually really nice and mild fragrance. My wife likes it alot.

This is the smell of a man. I loved it! I still have some and only used it for special occasions. My go-to fragrance is John Varvatos Artisan (my wife loves it) and I thought this was a perfect change. Have also tried another from this brand. They make a great product.

Intoxicating
Sampled

This fragrance is intoxicating and well worth the price. The mix of Tobacco gives it an earthy hint that compliments the other spices present. This scent lingers and smells like a summer abroad. I have receive so many compliments that I purchased the full sized. A little goes a long way and last for hours.

Not your standard cologne
Sampled

It smelled like early spring, pencil shavings and old paper to me. The scent lasted most of the day with the woodsy notes giving way somewhat to the sweeter aromas. My wife likes it. I'm not usually that fussy about the cologne I use, but I really want more of this.

I liked the scent a lot. My wife is usually the one to buy me cologne. This is something i would hope she would buy for me in the future. I will tell her i liked this and maybe she will remember.

Sweet and Stinky

It has a sweet scent that kind of already smells musty. Not my cup of tea...
