About 1740 Marquis de Sade

A truly unflinching scent for the modern male hedonist. A perfume where Leather and Davana explore the scandalous liberties of the Century of Lights.

1740 Marquis de Sade fragrance notes

Reviews of 1740 Marquis de Sade

Histoires de Parfums is a line that mostly draws a big yawn from me with one notable exception: 1740 Marquis de Sade, which is a terrific perfume. This is effectively a dry, dusty leather scent reminiscent of old libraries. There are many notes and accords, right from the davana to patchouli and a huge dosage of immortelle. Those who don't like immortelle would probably not enjoy 1740. There's a boozy aspect to the opening, which dissipates in about thirty minutes. There's vanilla in the dry down, but very restrained, while there are also some mild woody nuances.

1740 is quite unique, even among so many leather perfumes; first of all, don't expect a no holds barred leather scent (Tuscan Leather, as an example). Here there are several other complementary directions, because of the immortelle and the patchouli. This is probably what a leathery version of Eau Noire would smell like. 1740 has great longevity on skin, and adequate presence with strong sillage in the first two or three hours. Despite the baroque/opulent themes and (to an extent) demeanour, 1740 is quite wearable, and a versatile evening scent for me.

1740 was an experience I will always remember. However, it was not very pleasurable. I got a good deal on a travel size bottle so I decided to opt for it.

This fragrance starts off with a blast of patchouli, a note that I am not fond of honestly unless it is blended very well. In this case it is not. It is like an assault of the most dirtiest of smells. I don't pick up much of any of the notes listed besides the obviously patchouli,cedar, birch & some leather.

I do not sense any vanilla which would have helped this fragrance a great deal to cut out all that woodiness & earthiness. That is the problem I have with 1740, it's all dry with no sweetness. These are the type of frags I cannot stand nor wear. It is made of good materials, Long lasting at least 8 hours on me, projection is ok, not great but noticeable.

The Marquis de Sade is like drinking Chianti, full of life yet no charm. Thanks, but no thanks!

You're a tobacco leaf on a journey. Grown fresh in manured soil, then picked, hung in a stuffy barn, flue-cured, moistened, re-dried, conditioned, shredded, and blended with humectants, sweet resins, labdanum, vanilla, and birch tar. You're stuffed in a pipe and lit for a yearly celebration, and as you smolder, parts of you billow their way through its stuffy wood interior and into the living and organic interior of a man. When he's finished, your remains are left in the pipe to age for a whole year in those sweet and sticky oils, never to fully dry, until the man decides to celebrate again. 1740 by Histoires de Parfums.

Be careful with this one it's very bold. Two sprays max and it will last forever, however I think it's not well balanced and the immortelle comes out to dominate in the later stages. I should have tested this before I bought. I will have to explore this house more, this is a quality fragrance, just not for me.

It works for me. A strong citrus quickly followed by a spicy heart. The base is immortelle, nicely tempered by vanilla and to my nose not too overpowering. Perhaps not to the standards of Eau Noire as an immortelle "vehicle", but good. A possible contender as a date-night scent, although I am due to revisit 1725 by the same house and that is some serious competition. For me, solid and wearable.

What a manly beast!! Very sultry and very sexy. Apply lightly as this could frighten the faint of heart!
