As a tribute to Jules Verne, the father of science fiction, this fresh, maritime fragrance is a departure from the norm. Its vivid scent is inspired by the sights and smells of Nantes, the seaside port town where the author was born in 1828. And like Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days, this is a cologne that’s on the go, evolving from pine-y to peppery—minty to musky.
This is a citrusy fragrance with a strong pine note with hints of mint and musk. To be honest, I was underwhelmed at first spray, but once it started to dry down, it developed into something amazing. It is balmy and sophisticated and can easily become someone's signature scent because it is great for all occasions at any time of year.4
Loved the sample of their other scent I received in my birchbox and ended up buying both. Two very different scents for different occasions.
Top Note: Grapefruit, Citrus, Tangerine, Eucalyptus
Heart Note: Nutmeg, Pepper
Base Note: Cedar, Incense, Vetiver, Pine cone
Originality: spices, wood, aromatic herbs representing Jules Verne - world traveler. A group of olfactive scents assembled from trips all around the globe.
(Madagascar black pepper, Indonesian nutmeg…)
Moods: energizing, dazzling, bright, timeless.
Clean, sophisticated scent. I'm not a huge cologne guy, but when I have an occasion that calls for it, I'll just put a dab on my pulse points. This particular "perfum" did just the trick. Not overpowering, yet complex enough to make ya go...hmmm. Good stuff.5
Not too thrilled...I got this brand last month too, different scent but it was kind of a bummer to get the same brand twice in a row. I also don't like this scent or the last one either, not crazy about this brand, very girly.1
I rarely wear fragrance, because most give me a headache or they make me ill. 1828 Parfum is an exception. Love the fragrance and it has no side effects.5
Compared to this brand's other offers from birchbox, this was my favorite. I've already received compliments from using it so far.5
This one is awesome. The only thing that isn't awesome is that it just doesn't last very long on my skin. The little travel sized one is great for keeping in your pocket or briefcase, and I feel like it's a good deal for the price.4
My favorite fragrance. It's subtle which I prefer.5
Smells fantastic. I received more compliments than other colognes I wear. However, the nozzle of the bottle is faulty and needless to say it leaked all over my Dopp kit while traveling. Lost almost half the bottle and at that price well I just put it to the side3
I love this scent, and the description is correct - it does change over time. It's fresh and wears very well in warm weather. I would definitely consider purchasing the full size product.4
