    Default Histoires De Parfums, 1740 "Marquis de Sade" ...HO! LEE! MOLY!!!

    Have you smelled this?
    Have you worn this?
    What kind of feedback did you get?

    My god, HdP 1740 is incredible. It reminds me a lot of Lonestar Memories, but it's less dandy and more manly. Or more naughty? Wow, this stuff is amazing. I don't know if I'd ever buy it, because how often could I possibly wear something like this...? ...but I want it.

    Excellent composition. Love it. I went through a 14 ml travel spray in no time.

    Great dark, dusty leather with an addicting sweetness. Actually it's great for cold evenings, so I think you can wear it in many situations.

    My only gripe was that it didn't seem to have good longevity and a little weak sillage after the first two hours, so used 10-12 sprays to deal with it.

    Still, very much bottle worthy.


    If you are unsure, why not go with a 14 ml travel size? The travel sizes from HdP are great and very reasonably priced.

    I have a sample thanks to a generous Basenoter, but this scent just wasn't for me. I may revisit again when the weather cools down again.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Had this one for years, not quite as amazing in its current format as it once was. Still amazing non the less, a rich sumptuous complex leather.

    Own it, love it.

    The bit in bold is odd, insofar as LM.

    I also REALLY enjoy this scent. Only problem is that I find it difficult to wear. If you're interested but don't want to commit to a large bottle (and it's fairly strong anyway), Sephora has a small bottle of this for somewhere in the vicinity of $35.

    I read your notes list with interest; If I remember correctly it was an immortelle bomb on me, and I couldn't take it, the curry vibe and all. But I still have the sample and may need to go back and try it again.

    This one was extremely powerful on my skin. When my wife got home from work, she immediately noticed the scent on me. She kinda liked it, though. As others have said, however, I'm not sure I would wear it anywhere other than home. It's not bad at all, but it's just too powerful and perhaps a bit off-putting for some.

    I tried it and I like it in extremely small quantities. One drop too much and I'm clawing at my skin trying to get it to stop. But just a dab and I really enjoy it.

    I have a small sample of 1740. I liked it but not enough to buy a full bottle.

    To me, this is one of the greats in the HdP line. Technically, I always thought of it as very skilled too: the immortelle is woven into the fragrance in a way that finally made me think of that component as something more than overly-spiced maple syrup (Masque's Russian Tea and Piguet's Visa do this well too), and it never overwhelms the rest. So 1740 taught me how to appreciate immortelle.

    OP: this one might be easier to get along with (and even FB worthy) for the fall/winter? I'm not dogmatic about the season thing, but maybe worth a shot?

    A leathery immortelle beast, one of the very best from this respectable house. I got some on my shirt once and the scent was still noticeable after a wash cycle. I keep a small decant as a single spray is all you ever need and I doubt if it makes anyone's regular rotation.

    It's really good
    But too bad he toned down the immortelle note.

    Ahhh... maybe that's why I'm not getting that much immortelle here? Or maybe my nose is playing tricks with me, forcing me to focus on other aspects of this scent? Interesting...

    I may do that at some point. I have a feeling 15ml of this one would last a long time.

    I need to try this but I anticipate a dislike, as immortelle smells like cheap maple syrup to me.

    I'm going to have to smell the newer version. The maple syrup put me off but otherwise I liked it.

    There's something in it that reminds me of the oily leather in Auphorie's Miyako and in Alaia.

    I easily got 18 hours of longevity from this beast, but after a few hours it wore quite close to the skin, and I mean that in a good way. I really like it... but ...I have a feeling a sample is going to be enough for me. This scent is a beautiful beast, but it's not my style.

    Have 4-5 of the HdP's but this is my fav.
    Very distinct and well blended. I tend to go for it more in Fall /Winter, but need to try it on a hot Summer day just to see.

    A very good scent. Not something that people ( which people ?) wore 150 years ago. But a very good scent. Its a modern scent, just a bit niche like in its taste. I loved it even back when I only wore modern designers. As long as you aren't spraying like a maniac, it should be fine. Very comforting in cool weather.

    ...I may have to get another sample.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Pomegranate Noir, Midnight in Paris EDP, Feeling Man, Essence of John Galliano, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Aramis Calligraphy Rose, Penhaligon's Esprit de Roi, PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man ....etc. I have samples to swap.
