just got a sample today... i thought this is a new addition to the men's line.
though just read somewhere it is unisex. ona first try, i would say i would wear much more comfortably anything else among the 'irrelevants'.
after a very enjoyable peppery opening, the scents gets progressively sweet - orange blossom, cinnamon, vanilla... and the juniper is what i believe gives the sweetness quite a punchy twist.
i thought i like 1969, but would not wear it as i thought of it as leaning feminine.
compared to 1899 though 1969 gets to the point to seem a perfectly comfortable masculine wear...
it smells very natural, like most hdp scents of their traditional line, but the least i can say, the relevance to Hemingway is way off, regardless how liberal one looks.
