3.7 out of 5
The eucalyptus opens strong and doesn't smell cohesive with the rest of the notes. I generally like herbal and woody smells, but it somehow keeps reminding me of that sawdust they spread on vomit--not a good association. I like how it smells on the dry down, but it's so subtle it doesn't seem worth the opening notes.
I thoroughly enjoyed this cologne. It really does fit the Christmas season perfectly. I loved it, and received a couple compliments. Definitely a winner, especially for special occasions.
It’s safe, wear to all types of skin, I don’t know why but the heart notes I’m getting vetiver is just my nose or someone there smells that too!?
Long Lasting Manly Smell
So I picked this one to contrast a fresh fragrance I picked and this one rocks. It's woodsy and musky on the top notes, but once you get past that it really smells awesome. I agree this is a winter smell. It reminds me of sitting in a leather chair smoking a cigar and drinking brandy, but not in an old man way.
Enjoyable in Winter
You really get the Incense when wearing this. Great for winter. Lots of depth. Enjoyed it a lot.
Love this scent. Too hard to describe. One of my favorites, plus the wife likes it.
Way too strong
classy and classic
smells like james bond
45 to 54
I recently got another of their fragrances which I found to be a marvelous unique experience. This raised my expectations for this one perhaps too high. It’s not a bad fragrance just not a standout. Very similar to many others.
25 to 34
On my skin, this scent opens with a springy combination of pine and citrus with nutmeg and eucalyptus clearly in the background. After a while, the nutmeg and eucalyptus take over and a bit of incense comes through. It has an overall great composition to it and an interesting, comforting softness. I like to wear it to the office, while lounging, or on a casual night out. Once I realized how often I was reaching for it, I decided to buy a bottle.
Absolutely love it! Reminds me of this cologne by Ruehl that is no longer available. Probably will but a bottle of this 👍🏼
I would not recommend for a female that likes feminine scents. I wouldn’t call this a bad scent as I wear and I do enjoy, but I prefer not sweet smells. It’s a bit spicy, and masculine. Kind of like smelling Old Spice but not cheap and tacky.
55 to 64
Great smelling fragrance. Received compliments at work.
25 to 34
This product has sweet yet masculine scent without being too overwhelming. To spritz and I'm out the door. The smell definitely stays for a good 6-8 hours before it fades.
Another great fragrance that is not well known. I love it.
45 to 54
What a classy smelling and refined cologne. Wonderful. Puts me in a nice mood. Also, a wrist sniffer throughout the day. Good stuff.
Nice and Familiar
An easy going, dressed-up basic. Mostly woody and spicy, the citrus top notes disappear immediately to reveal warm nutmeg, woods, and incense.
35 to 44
love love love this
One of my 3 favorite colognes ever. It's bright, bold, and fresh enough to be clearly masculine. Great for wearing on a date-night, or just to freshen up in the spring or summer when the citrus notes are really in season. In autumn or winter the richer base-notes make it seem appropriate; the incense and nutmeg carry the day in those cooler seasons. Even though it's not listed, I detect something not unlike baby powder in the mix as well, just subtly that gives it a bit of softening on the edges so it could be used by women as well as men. At least in my opinion. What a great scent.
A great scent!
I love this scent. I like complicated, unusual scents. This is very unique and strong. Not for those who love florals
35 to 44
A bit too dark and old
While I dont dislike this scent, it just isnt my favorite. The notes all seem strong...while they melt together well, they are all too strong and bold in my opinion. It is nice for a mature gentleman but not for my boyfriend. Something a bit more sweet would make this more of a winner. But we wont be buying this one.
25 to 34
Warm and Intriguing
There’s a warmth to this scent that I really enjoy. Long lasting. Smells a little like something baking to me.
35 to 44
I like the way it smells but it fades over time.
25 to 34
A nice fougere
The opening of 1828 is odd, but once you move past the first few minutes it starts to open up into spicy woods and mysterious greens. One of the best fragrances from Histoires de Parfums.
This was too lady like for me. A bit too strong. It did die down a bit but ultimately I didn't even finish the sampler. It's a no for me
25 to 34
good enough as RETRO feels!
my feeling is as great as i were in Retro age! the colougn comprises a robust attire to your personalities!
Good not great.
The top is nice but a bit harsh. Dry down is better but the performance is average on me at best
Not for young professionals.
I really do like the way this smells. But it’s definitely a more mature and casual scent. Something that an older man than myself would wear on a weekend trip to palm beach with his 2nd wife or 3rd mistress.
Smells great, wife loves it, and that’s what really matters.
Histoires de Parfum
Great at night
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.
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.
Nice but too musky
Too musky for my taste
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.
A little feminine
It smells nice just not a masculine as id like
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.
Not for me
It’s too feminine for my taste.
Great smell, short lived
This smell so pretty fantastic, but disappointed that it fades so fast
It smells way too strong not fresh.
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.
Better for summer use.
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.
I feel like a Christmas tree when I wear this. A great sent for the fall and winter.
Smells like an old man.
Bring Back Memories
Love the smell of this perfume it does bring back a lot of memories of my childhood. I put it in the morning and still going during the night.
Most prominent scents to me are the pine and incense. Put some on in the morning and it lasts all day!
Very strong all day lasting scent. One spray...lasts all day
Histoires de Parfums 1828
It smells great, only lasts around 4hrs or so, it is worth the try.
I love this fragrance so much. It’s very class.
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.
No pro. Girls like. Many compliments.
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.
YSL La Nuit is amazing.
Smells wealthy bold attractive complex
Love this scent very masculine notes bold yet still smooth and very complex the scent is long lasting this for sure is worth a try
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.
S mooth smell but deliscious, love it!!
Light but mighty
Light scent with an easy application. I had many compliments from women and men that enjoyed my fragrance after a hug or close contact.
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.
Oscar, how did you upload your picture as our avatar next to your name?
Wasn't what I expected, but still a nice fragrance.
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!
I won't get it again but it isn't bad
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!!
BEST TO DATE
This is the best one I have received to date. the smell is amazing and very fresh yet still sweet. I am obsessed
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.
