Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

A spritz or two to the pulse points on your wrists and neck will do.

Sophisticated
Purchased

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.

I have another everyday fragrance that I bought after trying it from Birchbox, this is going to be added to my rotation, like the clean smell not overpowering!

I love this brand

I can see why people don't like the scents from this brand, but personally I think they're great. Another winner here.

Eh, another Histoires
Sampled

I had this sample from the Discoveries set. I do not like it on its own, it reminds me of something subtle like baby powder, but I mix the histoires together and it complements nicely with some of the other fragrances. Would not buy it just because I feel there are much better options out there
