Absolutely love it! Reminds me of this cologne by Ruehl that is no longer available. Probably will but a bottle of this 👍🏼

Masculine
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.

Nice balance
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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.
