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.

Too strong of a smell for me
Sampled

I like nice clean smells and this is not one of them. This may be the cologne for you but not me. Sorry, I would not purchase this product.

Could be better if it weren't for price.
Sampled

I'm not much to wear cologne, I just don't see the value for the price. Five more words for 20 total.

This reminds me of something my grandpa would wear going to a polka dance.

Don't care, not my thing
Sampled

Birchbox was gifted to me by my wife for valentine's--a much appreciated present.
However, I don't wear fragrances and wonder if this product has been tested on animals.
As for the brand: I like Hemingway's writing. A men's fragrance, however, is not a product I would associate with his particular stamp on the world.
On a somewhat irrelevant note, I love my socks!
And I have adjusted my profile accordingly:)

The small vial card included in my Birchbox was packaged securely - had a spray/pump top - the fragrance wasn't my cup of tea - my wife didn't like it at all - imo it smelled like a cross of Faberge Brut and CK Obsession - it didn't mellow well either. I wouldn't purchase this after sampling in a store etc.

smells like cedar chips in a closet

did not care for the smell; i think they were aiming for woodsy but unfortunately just smells like cedar chips/mothballs in my coat closet; ....packaging was a bit pretentious

Personally? One to skip
Sampled

This is the second time I've received this one as a sample, and I didn't like it any more the second time. Thankfully the BB staff caught the slip and made amends. Scent is so personal and subjective, so others may love this, but it's not for me.

Not sure how else to describe this, I was very surprised and not in a pleasant way when I put this on.
