About 1828 Jules Verne

He was born in Nantes, at the beginning of that century of discoveries. The close ocean took him far away, inspiring in him extraordinary novels of adventure. Inspired by the father of literary science fiction, this eau de parfum, breathes its aromatic Hesperides-like scents, just as a marine breeze over a wild heath.

Reviews of 1828 Jules Verne

Lovely fresh cool and clean masculine fragrance.
Eucalyptus, grapefruit, pepper, vetiver and cloves with the first three prominent and tangerine waving its hand occasionally.
The initial fresh blast settles to clean and cool slightly peppery.
Outstanding. Different enough to be a signature scent.
This can be used on almost any occasion but for me will be my warm weather scent.
FBW and I just did. I am glad. HdP have had several near misses for me. eg Fidelis and Memoires of a Trespasser.

I think I must be anosmic to this scent. Somehow super bright citrus scents often blast me for about 1/2 a second and then disappear, completely. My partner will say, “ooooh lots of bergamot” or “wow! Lime and grapefruit.” And I’ll be thinking, “does this have any scent beyond perfumers’ alcohol?”

It’s a strange feeling, as I can almost smell the scent coming from the closed bottle(let’s say near the cap) but as soon as I spray it’s like the world of smell goes quiet around me. It’s like when someone fires a gun next to the TV detective’s ears and the ringing is so loud that it blocks out all the other sounds as the character(I’ll be honest: I’m thinking of Archer) stumbles around looking dazed. That’s me in my living room right now.

I’m sure it’s lovely. Histoires is one of those houses that consistently marches to their own beat. I’ve read good things. But no. I can’t wear a scent that I can’t smell.

A manly fragrance. Very attractive. The citrus & eucalyptus are bright, sort of old style, at the start. Nutmeg blends in moments later. It give this a creamy, spiced tone. Pepper is here - not too much.

Eucalyptus, nutmeg, and increased pepper remain prominent, as some cedar and vetiver begin to add some freshness. Then some pine flavor comes along. The whole thing remains masculine. It reminds me of the 1970's in a way. It's very good but, I couldn't personally wear this.

Cedar, vetiver, incense, and pine increase after more time. Vetiver brightens. It's greener and more fresh, clear. The base is the best part. If it were the base alone, I Could wear 1828. As it is, I know I would enjoy this one on a man. I'll give it 3 and a half stars. Lasts for many hours.

I like this fairly well: it's nice and inoffensive, although maybe not very exciting. It's subtle and restrained (even elusive, as described below). During the opening, I can not get past the association with a chewing gum or bubble gum, a nice, agreeable gum, and that's not all I smell - there are more notes behind that - but the gum association is strong. At the same time, it's a natural-smelling fragrance, and easily wearable, completely polite and appropriate for any setting: office work, an interview, Thanksgiving dinner, a Christmas party.

It's listed (marketed) as masculine, and the pepper note helps make it more masculine, but I would have described it as unisex leaning feminine - it's so soft and round. It definitely strikes me as more feminine than masculine. I would like this on a woman.

So many fragrances use a cedar note that smells harsh and modern (trendy), but this lists cedar, and smells slightly woody, without a hint of chemical nightmare.

The incense in this case is frankincense rather than nag champa, and frankincense starts to dominate more as it develops, as frankincense typically (always?) does. Combined with how soft and round this is, and how agreeable the wood note is, the frankincense makes this a great scent for winter holidays.

You're out at a Christmas tree farm with your dad, and before long you've found the perfect one. Together, you saw the pine tree down and lug it back to his truck, accidentally pricking your hands along the way and getting them covered in sap. After he stitches you up on the back of the truck bed, you ask him if it would be okay if you could spend some time in the gift shop before you leave, and he agrees. When you walk inside, you're greeted by a cozy room surrounded by log cabin walls that are covered in all sorts of antique trinkets. You browse around and play with some of the decades-old toys as your dad buys an assortment of eucalyptus, vetiver, and cinnamon candles for your mom. 1828 by Histoires de Parfums.
