About 1899 Ernest Hemingway

Night throws its mask over Paris, the City of Light radiating from the splendor of freedom. In the streets, artists and writers capture the games of love and seduction in their modern languages. Champagne flows over crystal pyramids, and the very first jazz bands make the cafe walls tremble. A twirling Vanilla vanishes while playing hide-and-seek with vigorous Vetiver. There is not a second to lose in moments such as these; everything is possible. The night belongs to those who know how to live it.

Reviews of 1899 Ernest Hemingway

Sweet, pine-y, peppery opening. It reminds me of candy cigarettes, from my youth. The orange blossom and iris mesh well together. The candy aroma lingers throughout the middle. This reminds me of Vaninger by Oliver & Co. A vanilla base. Hours later, a vague powder note, on my skin. Leans more femme IMO.

Fresh, clean scent from Histoires de Parfums!

1899 starts out with a sharp tanginess from the duo of bergamot and juniper, with an ever so subtle peppery edge. This subsides within a minute into a moderately sweet vanilla-amber-orange blossom fusion, held upon a firm foundation of vetiver. It's there that 1899 stays for a while.

Spicebomb comparisons by other reviewers are on point, though 1899 is subdued in comparison to the Viktor & Rolf scent. Overall, I get a classy, casual fougere feel from 1899 that seems to work in any type of temperature or occasion. It smells well-crafted and legitimate in the sea of choices out there, though a premium price will be required to obtain this EdP. I would recommend starting with a decant, and if that really grows on you, go for a full bottle.

Enjoy! :-)

Sweet oriental fragrance, a little bit too sweet and linear.

If it is worn in small quantities on the shoulders and under the shirt ( the way I usualy wear stronger perfumes) it is not bad, but linearity makes it a unexciting.

In this class I still prefer Jaipur as a option nr.1.

Can't see a connection with Hemingway.

You're a lumberjack in a forest near the Pacific coast, cutting down trees. You're chewing sweet and spicy cinnamon gumdrops, daydreaming about Christmastime with the family. You briefly wonder if you could end the day early to stop and enjoy a peppered steak on your way home. 1899 by Histoires de Parfums.

A sweeter slightly creamier version of a few scents out there (Spicebomb anyone?). It's not bad just been done before and I was hoping for something a little better overall. It's not bad just eh citrus spicy and sweet with not a hint of vetiver...this is a try before you buy.

Very nice!! Yes....I get the comparisons to Spicebomb. Similar to how Original Santal is compared to Joop! and Reflection Man Compared to Le Male. Like those mentioned they are refined versions. 1899 is smother, creamier and better blended than Spicebomb. A Woman at work actually told me that it was the best fragrance she had ever smelled on me. Nothing groundbreaking but bloody gorgeous.
