Old-world Paris was the inspiration for this complex fragrance. 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, it’s a cultured cologne for a cultured man.

1899 transcending time
Sampled

Never heard if this brand before but I am intrigued to see what other fragrances they have based on this one. The best way to describe it is a classic, timeless scent that is reminiscent of days past brought into a modern era. It goes on smelling like cedar and woodsy with a sweet undertone.

Nice scent, but a little too spicy

I have really enjoyed (and purchased) a number of BB scent samples (especially English Laundry), but as much as I liked this scent, it held up as a little too spicy for me (and my better half) I'll finish the sample, but stick to other scents.

Great manly scent
Sampled

I'm very picky about cologne and always looking something that smells masculine without being too woodsy. This is a strong cologne without being overwhelming. Great smell, great staying power. One of the few colognes that my girlfriend loved on me.

Smells amazing.
Sampled

Reminds me of spice bomb but not as spicy. It's a great smell for date night or just out and about. I keep it in the car in case I forget to spray something on my way out of the house

The smell
Sampled

This stuff is for sure leathery or old book room, and brandy sipping smell. Very musky. Not may favorite and I received it previously in a scent tour.

Got a Nice Compliment
Sampled

I wear different scents every day and it goes unnoticed. I wore this for the first time and got lots of compliments on it. Also convenient that I can travel with this size!

Great, light scent
Sampled

1899 has a sweet, slightly oriental scent while still remaining masculine, making it great for those who don't wear cologne that often or who don't like the "generic" smell of men's cologne.
