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.

This is a great cologne. Has really nice smell without being too flowery or strong. It works great when you work in an office.

Another great scent
Sampled

This cologne is perfect for the individual that does not want to overwhelm everyone in the room. It is a light scent just what I want.

Smells amazing

I love cologne...and unfortunately not cheap cologne. This may be my new splurge cologne instead of Tom Ford for $400 a bottle.

Hemingway would be proud
Sampled

This was one of the first samples I received and I wish I would have used it far more sparingly than I had. It's my personal favorite from Histoires de Parfums. I know the full size will definitely be on my birthday wishlist. Every man needs a a few signature fragrances, but I'd be more than pleased to where this everday.

Best cologne I've ever used!
Sampled

I don't typically wear cologne but fell in love with 1899. It has a very unique smell and a break from your typical colognes.

It felt like a very natural and not overly powerful on the nose.

My girlfriend was bummed when my sample ran out!

My son loves this product
Purchased

My son received a sample of this item in his birchbox and he told me about it. I bought him the full-sized product as a birthday gift and he's very happy with it.

Second Time's the Charm
Sampled

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.
