    Default 1725 Casanova by Histoire de Parfums

    This one is a question for the people that have large decants or full bottles of this amazing frag.

    To me it's a bit like "Taste of Heaven" & "L'Eau d'Hiver" had a love child that inherited the best of both. I'm fascinated by it, it seems to have quite a bit going on, despite initial impressions. I'm just about to pull the trigger.

    I know it's softly spoken, but what I wanted to know from you is whether you find it adequately tenacious.

    Cheers, J

    Thanks volley2. The department store that sells them here doesn't have take home testers for that line. All I've had is a couple of skin tests.

    Very impressed so far, the opening is divine. All the accords are low volume but very detectable.

    I have good longevity from all Histoires de Parfums frags. I attribute most of that from really good quality ingredients.

    Thanks for that, my intention is to get to know the whole range more intimately. The ones I've sniffed so far (1818, 1725, Ambre 114) all warrant further investigation. 1725 I was smitten with.

    1725 is amazing! I get good longevity with this. I definitely over-applied this the first wearing as I thought it was so soft and quiet that I just kept dabbing on more and more, and then about 30 minutes later I realized just how strong it was and how much sillage I was pumping out. It's a deceptive one!

    SoS we share a love for the frags that speak softly but carry a baseball bat: APOM, Reflection Man, and now 1725. 1725 is deceivingly complex, isn't it? That's an attribute it shares with Reflection.

    Excellent longevity.

    No, I don't agree. I have a full bottle and love 1725, but its longevity is only average (4 hours) on me. I don't think that quality ingredients mean exceptional longevity by definition. I am easy on the trigger with this. I think Luca Turin is very right in saying it's getting very close to L'Heure Bleue at one stage.

    A personal favourite for me - enjoyed it this last summer and it's also great now it's cooler - this is one I would travel with. I think it lasts really well, it feels present and accounted for in a good way when I'm leaving work. Can't recommend it enough really if you like the actual accord and feel of it from sampling, but these things seem to perform differently for different people so I take most comments about longevity here with a grain of salt

    I like your description - Taste of Heaven & L'Eau d'Hiver are both also favourites for me.

    Thanks all for your advice, it's highly valued.

    I purchased an 120ml bottle of 1725, and I can see myself wearing it very frequently. My impression at the moment is that it seems to have that chameleon quality that renders it appropriate for any time. It complements more than it envelopes the wearer. Very smooth.

    This is my sort of scent

    Cheers, J

    If I'd splurge on a full bottle of HdP it would be 1725, I got 3 15 ml bottles and 2 of those are 1725. Very nice scent
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    I have a full bottle and itīs an ok scent, but it doesnīt last long on me either.
    Some of the other ones (I have samples) , like the De Sade one lasts long on me though.

    1725 is a smooth operator - definitely my top pick from one of my favorite houses. Incl. discontinued ones, I've tried every single fragrance from them with the limited edition Defile New York as the only exception. No longevity issues whatsoever, though a few of their fragrances play hide-and-seek with your nose. On my skin 1725 hits the 8 hour mark consistently, even with modest spritzes. I find it more interesting than Kilian's A Taste of Heaven.

    I have tried a sample of Casanova and liked it, but, for me, not enough to consider it bottle worthy.

    I think that 1725 is the home run among the HdP masculines (the others are great too). Strong and longlasting. Quality stuff.

    This seems to have a proper following here. I'ts not very long lasting on me but that won't affect my enjoyment.

    It does play with lavender in a novel manner. I'd say the almond acts as a volume control. It's a hit out of the park!

    It's a wonderful but not terribly strong fragrance. What I've found is not that it goes away, but it's not something I'd wear on a summer day if I had a lot of running around to do cause I've found I end up smelling sort of Casanova in a shirt that needs laundering.
