Bold and Complex
Tried this on a whim and was not unimpressed. I've never experienced a scent quite like this one. I choose something a little warmer for the cold winter months, but didn't want it too overpowering. 1828 provides a great blend of spice, wood, and sweet warmth, all of which blended together nicely.

Incense Be Intense
It is wonderful. Opens with a hint of brand new Time Magazine, takes a detour to baby powder and drops you at your destination, the French Farmland in Spring. The description may sound off putting but its nostalgic and easy. A French president would wear this.

Really nice introduction but ..
Once the initial tones wear off a woodsy musk fills the area. I didn't mind the musk, it is unique but not a daily driver honestly.

Its OK
I really liked the initial tones of citrus and eucalyptus. However, the citrus and eucalyptus smell was quickly overtaken by muskiness. Its not bad but I don't care for musky scents.

I really do Love this fragrance. It's fresh-spicy up front but mellows out quickly into a subtle spicy-tangy. I think this scent is best in the fall or winter and could work well in intimate settings or office settings. The only drawback is that, for me, this fragrance wears off extremely quickly.

I love it.
I really don't know how to describe the scent. Woodsy for sure. Very manly. You sure won't smell like some high school kid or some frat boy when wearing this. I feel like this pairs very well with a beard. I absolutely love it, from the first sniff. It's woodsy, earthy, a bit spicey. For the man's man. Does, however, seem to wear off very quickly.

Really enjoyed this scent
Great! I really like this one. Have had multiple compliments going about my day when I wear it. It’s a woodys scent which for me I had never had such a fragrance before. I would definitely order this one again.

Oh.. hello grandpa
This is the most old man smelling... Spearmint toothpastes mixed with rubbing alcohol and licorice. I love this brand, I hate this smell.

I smell literally none of those notes haha but I understand everyone has a different sniffer. Personally, I think the frag is fuckin awesome...but it disappears almost before you walk out the door. You'd think it would have better performance for as pricey as a full bottle is.

Amaaaaaaaazing
From the first spray, I fell in love. So much, that I added it to my queue again!! Can’t get enough. Seems to last what seems like forever. Probably my favorite new cologne of all time.

Last forever? That's crazy. Almost makes me think different bottles have different quality levels. Because while I also think this is so good that it now sits in my top 3 fave fragrances, it seems like it wears off not even 45 minutes in. No one can notice this on me after the first hour. That was disappointing.

Received this recently and wow. This is one of the most versatile scents; definitely signature scent worthy. If I had to get rid of my fragrance collection just to have this one I would in a heartbeat.

Sweet/Cozy
Sweet, warm, perfect for fall and winter. Vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg. Long lasting, which is definitely a plus. I prefer something a bit more rustic, bold, and refined. But, this is a welcome change of pace from my YSL Noir and Lacoste Noir. Imagine if the gingerbread man made a Christmas version of RL Safari, that's what this smells like.

Great scent and unique
Very sweet out of the bottle but them transforms. Awesome citrus notes and then the masculine heart notes begin to mellow. Will order this one again. Not your everyday scent but that is the beauty in Histories de Parfum. So far, I have loved all their scents. Great staying power as well.

Amazing
Starts off very fresh with the top notes of Pine & Eucalyptus, then it completely transforms into something warm and very sophisticated, predominately the incense and the nutmeg. It's so contrasting and unique. It has become one of my Fall/Winter staples.

My first ScentBird scent!
As the title says, this was the first scent that I tried from ScentBird. I have been wearing the same Cologne (Pi) since I graduated from high school 17 years ago and have been trying to replace that fragrance for many years but I have found nothing that I have liked as much until now! This scent is hard to describe but I liken it to dessert on Thanksgiving Day! It has a warm sweet earthy smell like fresh baked sweet potato pie with nutmeg and cinnamon and allspice! Now I don’t know if that’s what’s actually in it but that’s the best way I can describe it. I wanted to eat myself but I didn’t because that would be weird and painful! So if I haven’t convinced you to try this scent, I’ll say this lastly... this is the first review I have ever written on anything...EVER! I thought this was actually worth my time and effort! I only wish more came in the ScentBird bottle, but I am definitely considering purchasing a full bottle of 1828 in the near future!

Love it!
Histoires de Parfum 1828 is a beautiful scent which evokes charm & sophistication. The sharp citrus/eucalyptus/pine opening with a faint sweetness underneath. Invigorating! After the initial blast it calms down to a dry, attractive woody pine. It surprises me that this actually works as well as it does; eucalyptus isn't something that I'd normally want to smell in a perfume. The eucalyptus also gives 1828 an aquatic feel but it remains completely natural, unlike most aquatic fragrances. This is a pretty masculine frag but I could see a woman pulling it off. Vetiver (eucalyptus/pine), Incense, Cactus, Fern, Green Bell Pepper/Capsicum and spices. The dry down reveals Nutmeg, Cedar, Wood. Amazing projection and silage - very natural and pretty damn unique - maybe slightly challenging but if you like green it’ll pass for formal or casual use. Beautiful!!

Unique
This is the perfect everyday summer fragrance. Long lasting, amazing smelling and most importantly UNIQUE. If you’re tired of those uninspired soapy water scents do yourself a favor and check this one out.
