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

Awesome!

I received a sample and immediately purchased this product. Talk about a masculine scent. This is it. I am sitting at my desk wearing it this morning. People smell it. They love it. My wife sits closer to me when I wear it.

Best Cologne
SampledPurchased

This is probably one of the best colognes I have ever had the pleasure of purchasing. I have purchased a lot of colognes in my day. The scent stays all day and doesnt fade away and it really smells like its made with love and has a smell of wealth to it.

Nice smell, lasts well

I personally like the smell of this cologne. It reminds me of some others I have tried in the past, plus it hangs around for most of the day. It's nice to still smell good at the end of a long day.

Loved this one
Sampled

Smells great. Masculine, but not in a sporty sort of way. More complex than that. The price was quite the disappointment though. I would have bought a bottle if it was more reasonable.

Nice and Unique
Sampled

A very strong fragrance, similar to many out there. However, it has some subtle other notes to it that make it stand out and different from many of the other options. Expensive, but nice cologne.

Great Scent

Get ready for everyone to ask what you are wearing. Very manly but clean smelling. A deeper fragrance that is also good for everyday wear.

Nice smell

This has a nice smell, but I haven't worn it too much. I usually stick with the one cologne that I have now.
