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.

Not for me

This product is not my preference. It had a very feminine scent to it that I did not like.

Love the smell of this cologne. It has a bite to the fragrance that I don't have with my other colognes.

1899
Sampled

The idea behind Histoires de Parfums is genius and original. I love that the developers chose to channel a particular year in a fragrance. My sample was the 1899 edition, based around Ernest Hemmingway, so not only did this concept strive to channel a moment in time, but also a great writer and real "man's man" of history. With this cologne, any man can achieve the unique air of Hemmingway's sophistication and finesse. Using this fragrance transports one back to the time which it was framed around and also allows for a new and brilliant outlook on style. It may be 2014, but with Histoires de Parfums, any man can become a man of the ages. I am excited to purchase the 1899 fragrance as well as to sample the 1828: Jules Verne edition.

Perfect fragrance that is very versatile for either wearing to the office or on a night out. Will be purchasing and highly recommend. Only negative is the sample size is a little small...

Thanks, Birchbox!

Finally a scent that I love.

I've had the hardest time finding a scent that I really love. In my opinion, 1899 is a perfect blend of gentleman and manly-man. And, my wife likes it on me. Sold.

Ok

Ok is about the best I can say about this one. It's fine but just didn't float my boat... It's not bad-- just not for me.

Smells so good!!

It is too bad this costs $125 or I'd buy it on the spot. I love this scent, and my girlfriend really likes it as well. It is soft and subtle, and maybe someday I'll save up my birchbox points and splurge.

Overall I really liked this cologne. I got a lot of compliments from people I went out with last weekend about it. The only problem I see with it is that its a little pricey.

Amazing smell

This is one of the best fragrances I've ever worn. The problem is it's extremely pricey. If it's ever on sale I will for sure buy
