    1725 is absolutely beautiful. Not too sweet. Not too spicy. Just right. I would love a bit more projection and longevity, but this is one of my all time favorites.

    Opinion: 1725 is a very nice scent, a classic fougere that gives us sweet, floral, spicy and woody scent. Very masculine, due to the lavender note, it´s elegant, classy and charming. The opening is citrusy sweet (licorice?), very agreeable, but after the lavender comes in. As you guys know, I´m not a great fan of lavender, but fortunately, it´s not too prominent here. The base notes are also very nice, giving a sweet woody scent. The combination and quality of this fragrance are both very good. Although having a good performance, the fragrance itself is never offensive, being smooth but present.

    Yes, one have the similarity with Invasion Barbare, although the latter is way better, in my opinion. And guys, do not forget I´m not a fan of lavender based scents, not because I don´t like the scent itself, but because of the barber shop/mature man type of scent character. I´m 35 but I simply don´t see myself wearing this type of scents, although I see (smell) great quality in these fragrances (mostly in Invasion Barbare).


    Type/Gender: Masculine.

    This is clearly a manly scent.


    Season and Purpose: This is a good fragrance for Spring, Summer (not the hottest days) and Fall. Almost a all year round fragrance.

    This scent is quite agreeable and safe, so I´d say it´s good for work, formal occasions and possibly for some upper class events. Personally I wouldn´t use it for dates, night out or casual situations.


    Achilles heel: Barber shop vibe/mature man (over 50s) type of scent (personal taste case).


    Regarding Performance:

    - Longevity: 12-13h
    - Sillage: About moderate
    - Projection: ~3h

    Scent: 9.27
    Longevity: 9.10
    Sillage: 7.90
    Projection: 7.65
    Uniqueness: 8
    Versatility: 8.15
    --- Overall: 8.36


    Would I buy it? Probably not.

    Really good fragrance overall, classic fougére quality, safe, but not my cup of tea due to the "barber shop"/mature man vibe. Plus, $200 for 120 ml is not a cheap price. So, probably a no go or purchase.

    Genre: Fougère

    Citrus and lavender top notes suggest a conventional fougère is in the offing, but in the event, a plush, almondy heliotrope and anise accord wells up in place of the expected coumarin, and 1725 plays out like a batch of Après l’Ondée that stumbled through a lavender patch and came out smelling more assertive and androgynous for the trouble. The heliotrope and anise on a powdery foundation bring to mind Boucheron’s elegant Jaïpur Homme, but 1725 is a leaner, less elaborate scent, and may appeal to those who find the Boucheron’s oriental trappings too sweet or spicy.

    As 1725 develops, the heliotrope outlasts the anise, and the drydown settles into a very soft, caressing, but not overly sweet, powdery vanillic amber accord. While the olfactory texture is downy and plush throughout, 1725 is more than adequately potent and projects effectively for several hours’ wear. Taken altogether this is a very well-crafted and gratifying fragrance. I recommend it especially to men who admire Après l’Ondée, but feel self-conscious wearing the Guerlain.

    I never thought I’d ever have occasion to write the following words ‘superbly executed anisic fougere’. For one, most anise notes leave me cold if not reaching for the paracetamol, for another, I find the fougere category probably the most unadventurous in perfumery. But this little wonder managed to convert me. Perhaps it’s because the licorice and star anise unite so sympathetically with an earthy, almost peaty vanilla and lovely dry wood tones. It’s the anchoring influence of these deeper notes that also grounds the lavender-citrus fougere chord and makes it sound anew. The entire thing is seamless. One of those perfumes you can wear without thinking too much about them; just don’t expect some fantastic voyage.

    Powdery vanilla, amber and almond blend that reminds me of Midnight In Paris. I guess the powdery vibe does that. This is much more refined than MIP. And at the price ($125.00) it should be. 1725 has a vintage vibe and if you don't like powdery fragrances, don't get this one. I like the fresh baby powder smell, but you can purchase MIP and get the same vibe. 7.5/10

    It's a rich smelling citrus and powder blend that dries down to what smells like an expensive talcum powder.
