    After the controvertial Ambrarem, Petroleum and Rosam, Histoires De Parfums is getting ready to launch a new trio of Edition Rare: Veni, Vidi, Vici.

    Inspired by Gaio Giulio Cesare's popular quote "Veni, Vidi, Vici" pronounced in frotn of the roman senate after the battle of Zela, this trio will be focused on spices...



    Veni: The earth!

    Notes: Lavender, Cardamom, Ambergis, Galbanum, Cinnamon, Gaiac Wood, Carnation, Saffron, Vanilla, Patchouli.

    Vidi: The Wind!

    Notes: Cardamom, Ozonic Notes, Saffron, Rose, Ambergis, Immortelle Absolute.

    Vici: The Fire!

    Notes: Cardamom, Galbanum, Agnelica, Incense, Iris, Osmanthus Absolute, Musk, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Raspberry.

    Sorry for the crappy picture, I will update it as soon as I'll have access to a better one among the ones I took...

    Thanks for the up-date, note lists don't look too bad. Did you manage to sample any?

    Did you spend any time wearing them at all yet, alfarom?

    I enjoy a bit of spice in my life and given Ghislain's culinary background (and great track record) I imagine these could be quite fun. I certainly look forward to giving them all a shot. Just to show how open minded I am I'll even try the one with ozonic notes

    Will have to see how the ozonic notes materialize.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    Not much, Morton. Unfortunately I only smelled them through the glass cones but I was quite impressed by two. I can't currently remember which ones exactly but I'm almost positive one was Veni and the other Vici. In fact, I remember a slight Invasion Barbare-vibe while smelling one. All I can say right now is that they're very far from the former "accusative trio" (as Cacio calls them). Honestly? I found them very stimulating but I'll need to properly test them in a more "relaxed" environment.

    From the accusative trio to the past-perfect trio, we're touring Latin grammar. But they need to be smelled. Let's see if this trio again has a nightmare from hell, an unwearable but striking one, and a decent, interesting frag (as in the current trio, Ambrarem, Petroleum, Rosam). Vidi could be the horror, ozonic + immortelle could scare both me and hedonist!

    LOL! As I previously said, I only smelled them through the glass cones but they striked as very different from the former trio. One (most probably Veni) striked somewhere between Invasion Barbare and Ormonde Man. It was actually quite good out of the cone...let's see, let's see...

    Hmm surprised about one being similar to IB when they already have 1725 playing in that realm.

    Thanks for the info alfa. I'll be very tempted to pick these up.

    Don't take it for granted, I only smelled them rapidly. My initial impression was of a cross between a nugere and Ormonde Man. Back home, I got the press kit for the release of this new trio and comparing the notes of Veni to both Ormonde Man and Invasion Barbare, it made a lot more sense...

    Ormonde man does contain aquatics, hidden below the fronds. Whether this promises well or not, we shall see.

    Vidi and Vicci sound very interesting looking forward to these popping up on the radar and hearing more basenoters impressions once they land.

    Anything new on these? I see them in the directory now, but very little in the way of reviews (other than Alfarom's initial impressions here).

    While I didn't care for the previous trio at all, I already got my name in on a split of each of these new ones, but am curious to hear more about them!

    I, too, am interested to hearing what people got to say about these 3. Really interested in getting the Veni and am really tempted to click 'Pay Now' on their website...

    I received Vici the other day, blind basically on the praise from others, how highly I regard HdP, and that it included osmanthus, incense, and raspberry. It sounded very interesting and I was not let down. I'm terrible with notes I'm not too familiar with (which this has a few) but I definitely get some fruity osmanthus in the beginning along with angelica, it gradually becomes sweeter with the vanilla/raspberry showing through.

    HdP RARE-ly disappoints.

    My nose is quite uneducated. For Vici, I get mainly a fresh lavender with a fairly sweet vanilla/raspberry. I think it works quite well!

    Glad to hear some positive reviews! Can't wait to smell these for myself. Not a very big fan of HdP (with the exception of a few gems), but still looking forward to trying these.

    Veni is on today. It will definately need a few wears to fully evaluate in my uneducated nose but for some reason I am reminded of Angel Men??? It has only just been put on an hour ago so time will tell. Is def in the like side right now!!!

    Today i care about the first one of the new trilogy ( of fragrances appointed to set down a reconnection with the powerful natural elements), i mean Veni, namely the reconnection with the element of earth and a new Mr. Ghislain's perspective on the commercial side of the olfactory square. Whatta surprise (and it doesn't mean necessary in a good way)! As an Histoires de Parfums's great admirer i approached this new release expecting to discover a new brilliant work of experimentalism or anyway something more than vaguely classic, obscure, "neo- vintage" or decadent while my serendipity had been about a more common talky, fresh/warm and watery amber/musk fragrance with a widespread spicy sweetness (supported by the implementation of resinous galbanum and caramel). With all the differences of course, this fragrance could be located, in the course of its talky/liquid (sweetish, aromatic, resinous, yet more than vaguely creamy/intoxicating and herbal) beginning, in the same clan with Le Male, Luna Rosa Prada for men, Bogart Pour Homme, Penhaligon's LP No. 9 For Men and could be "conceptually" standing in a second time (when the "sweet talkiness" a bit recedes and a wet, light, sweetly spicy and milky-vanillic woodiness stands out) more properly on the same stage with some common sweetish talky/woody/watery releases a la Borsalino Panama, Ferrari Black, Nomad Crabtree&Evelyn, just vaguely a la more aromatic Rocabar Hermes (just for the spicy/creamy woodiness) etc, (but in some case with a more pronounced woodiness). Frankly Veni doesn't enbody my archetype of favorite smell and i find the aroma utterly boring and already roamed hundreds of times in accordance with the current mainstream taste. Sincerely i detect a too much pronounced final sweet ambery/musky woodiness as common in many recent releases i don't crave for. My neutral rating is confered because of the great Mr. Ghislain's talent and cause the Veni's aroma offers a far less synthetic and bombastic alternative for the lovers of this olfactory theme.

    P.S: testing again the juice on my skin i notice that, in the initial-central phase of the evolution, before the sweet spicy woodiness evolves, several trails conjure me up some Japuir Homme's nuances.(Japuir is more lemony-floral, less spicy but with a commonly appointed usage of balsams and boise notes).

    - - - Updated - - -

    Vidi, the second of the new trilogy, embodies on the olfactory sphere the reconnection with the primordial element of the air with its "water-fruity", vaguely minty (cool/aromatic) and ozonic type of ambery woodsiness. The soapy/vanillic and musky light final woodiness is the common trail with its brother Veni but in this fragrance the beginning is decidedly less sweet-intoxicating and more watery, salty, yet woody and botanic with the initial cucumber-light flowers-ozonic trails-aromatic plants accord. The effect is lighter, far less sweetly dusty/intoxicating and more "windy" with a cool and lymphatic vibe all around (funned in the air by a touch of saffron). The ozonic notes-woods (i suppose cedarwood) chord, turned out drier and dustier with hints of cardamom, produces a vaguely salty (better to talk about a sharp, pungent and dusty) woodiness. The floral notes in the meanwhile turn out in the cool air a rosey spark of sophisticated light feminity. The cyclamen in particular is absolutely soft and ethereal. In the complex Vidi is a well appointed light floral surrounded by a pleasant and gracefully romantic airiness. Really natural and pleasant even if the salty/woody background hardly satisfies my full pleasure.
