For a fresh, ever-evolving scent inspired by Jules Verne, try Histoires de Parfums 1828.

Histoires de Parfums

Birchbox Breakdown

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. This is a cultured fragrance for a cultured man. Papa would approve.

How to Use

Spritz on your wrists and neck—with restraint, like Hemingway’s prose.

Denat. Alcohol 96° (infected with 5g of phtalate ethyle per liter), éthanol, diethyl phtalate, Fragrance, Limonene, Coumarin, Linalool, Eugenol, Citronellol, Geraniol, Cinnamal, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Benzoate, Water

Second Time's the Charm

BB sent me this product twice by mistake and i'm glad they did. I didn't appreciate it the first time. This time around, the wife really took a liking to the scent. I think I'll be picking this up in the future.

Very nice scent, but not manly enough.
Sampled

I really hate getting cologne samples in my Birchbox -- mostly because I can easily get these small sample sprayers myself. As for the scent, though: good, very sweet. This is the main reason I gave it four stars. However, I did end up giving the sample to my fiance because it smells very much like warm vanilla sugar, which she likes and which I would never wear.

Histoires de Parfums 1899

I have tried other samples from this brand but this one is by far the best. Hints of vanilla and oak. Doesnt fade quickly. Got compliments the first time I wore it. Def buying the full size.

Spicy!

The funny thing is that I already purchased this fragrance from
birchbox when I received the sample. I am not too upset about it because I love the way it smells. The only problem is that it is expensive and there are fragrances out there that smell almost the same.

Fragrance is good. It can be used for any occasion and is not too overwhelming. Love the sample size!

I love this scent. It last a long time, and smells great. Only problem is the price point is just too high. Can't justify spending that on collogne at this point..

Stanks Good...
Sampled

Colognes have come a long way since my trusty ole Brut bottle. This particular doesn't burn your skin off on application. However, it smells great. Soft. A little touch of vanilla and cinnamon. Small problem... this mist is too pricey for my blood. Might have to take a small loan out for a bottle down the road.

This is a nice almost musky smell. Love it for winter months.
