Reviews of 1876

Ingenious use of litchi, sneaked into the thick of the recipe to poke its frills out at every other turn. A powdery but sometimes sharp spiced rose with an underlying funk, like Hammam Bouquet on the prowl. Her floral coterie are with her but Rose is the star tonight. The drydown is depressingly stark after all the fun I had before it, with a dry and dreary weight suggesting the whole experience was a drug trip on a night out, but man, what a night it was!
Out of a 10-sample pack from HdP Mata Hari was the last one I tried because it didn't sound so compelling in print. I get really excited when I am this wrong.

The freshness of bergamot adds to a fruity opening of of lychee with a fennel note in the background - very interesting and unusual. In the drydown herbal impressions mix with a darker rose, cumin and cinnamon to a delectable mix. The base des some woodsy sweetness with a reasonable sandalwood mixed with vanilla, with white musk and guaiac added in the last hour.

Quite convincing, well executed with moderate sillage, good orojection and six hours of longevity on my skin. A prettycreative HdP product especially initially. 3/5

A joyful sort of scent, one that exudes good humor and a smile and make you slightly more cheerful for the day ahead! It is deceptively simple, opening up with a bright, rose and iris talcum powder note vaguely reminiscent of dusty potpourri. It remains that way for a long time and then bit by bit opens up to reveal the wetter center of the dusty rose, made more juicy with some lemon. But it is essentially a powdery, dry sort of perfume, and sweetly, innocently old-fashioned, like a 19-year old ingenue who thinks that short skirts are risque. Charming and sweet.

Carnation, rose, spices, resins, vanilla, white musks, ginger (I know it is not listed but I somehow smell something similar), sandalwood, light citrus notes, and some other floral notes I am unable to get. Soft and slightly powdery. I read iris is here: glad to know. A rather classic structure with a transparent spring feel, pleasant and balanced, with a refreshing balsamic breeze coming and going. The sweet accord (which smells a bit like gingerbread to me) is a little overhelming and cloying, I wish it managed to stay lighter. Beautiful dusty base of dry woody-tobacco-like notes with a nice herbaceous/mossy feel. Globally nice but also "neither flesh nor flow", basically an "eau de cologne" (European meaning) with a chypre heart, a feminine twist, and a masculine drydown. Pleasant and refined but a bit dull.

6,5/10

Oh my, this is my favourite kind of rose – juicy and liquerish to start before revealing the complexity of the supporting ingredients: gorgeous powdery spices, balsams and woods, resolutely old-fashioned and introspective. This rewards and soothes at every stage, with each note hung perfectly in balance, with special mention owed to the dreamy influence of iris and sandalwood. As it proceeds it is no longer predominantly rosy, more a blissful emanation of soft spicy woods (a bit like Féminité du Bois) with a floral mien. I’m a little in love.

Another skilfully crafted HDP which introduces by soon its neo-classicism by an hesperidic blast of bergamot, some animalic notes, gassy spices, a touch of the mineral Ghislain's typical landmark and an hearty-botanic vibe (probably aroused by the combination of carnation, vetiver and violet) stout throughout under my nose. I detect along the way an hearty/mineral back ground and some lingering gassy/powdery softness aroused by smooth iris and may be cumin all over a main vintage/animalic (civet i suppose) and spicy/orangy/floral vibe with a rosey twist a la Rosam but with a more woody and slightly fruity temperament. Chandeliers, tepestries, draperies and fat frames dominate the brown ambience. 1876 is another glorious gem from this great brand coming straight from the massive and "stale" parisian attics.
