Enigmatic Fragrance
This is the best fragrance by far that I've had the pleasure to enjoy not to mention those that are in my 50 ft of space that agree this fragrance really smells good and it also helps me make a good first impression. I also love it because it can be worn anytime of day for any occasion!

On a Scale of 1-10, I Give It An 1889!!
Wow. This is really a unique and gorgeous scent. Spicy and a tad sweet, effervescent, and richly layered. I couldn't be more thrilled, I've loved several of the perfumes I've gotten through Scentbird but this is my favorite.

Wow!
22 year old female here. I was expecting this to smell very nice but I'm really surprised HOW nice it smells and how age appropriate it still is. It has the light spiciness to it with a backing of light sweetness and definitely isn't "old lady". It smells like a date night that ends with sitting by a fireplace reading together! Cozy, warm and a little spicy. LOVE it (and my boyfriend does too)

People grabbed me!
My work people grabbed me and hugged me said my scent was intoxicating! I like this in a scent! I have ordered 8 scents so far and this is the first that got that reaction. It’s warm and spicy and I like it a lot! Even when I think it’s gone, someone commented on the scent, it was there.

So Mature it makes me think...
...of my grandmother wearing faux fur scarves and smoking Virginia slims from a cigarette holder while sitting in a diner people watching in Paris. It's a nice scent, but I'm not mature enough for it, yet.

Different but good
Opens with a little bit of citrus freshness. That wore down pretty quick and the base was an ever changing cascade of pepper and spice. Late into the drydown it turned into a powdery, cinnamon/vanilla which I actually didn’t hate. It lasted all day on me at work but I didn’t not get very good projection. Overall I’m happy with it. It’s a nice cozy fragarance on a relaxing fall day or out around town in a casual setting.

Strong and long lasting
While scentbird has this listed as uni-sex, on the actual website, it's listed as a male scent. That being said, I do think it works for either. When you first spray it, there is a strong woodsy/cedar smell. After a few moments and throughout the day, I pick up the vanilla notes. It smells soft as it wears. I've received several compliments. It is strong and lasts long on me, so I am using it as a fall/winter scent. I live in FL and it would be WAY TOO HEAVY FOR FLORIDA SUMMER. I would definitely order again and would recommend to someone who likes to different and complex scents.

This is one that I may turn into my signature scent. It’s different than anything I’ve smelled before. I recently discovered that I adore scents that lean a little masculine but are definitely feminine at the same time, and this is it

Worth the hype
I enjoyed this scent the moment I got it. It does start strong,but then mellows out and leaves a pleasant scent al day with a few sprays. Everyone mentions the vanilla and cinnamon which I can definitely detect. I’ve gotten nothing but compliments when worn. This is a spicy scent for sure but a pleasant one in my opinion. Looking forward to trying Histoires other offerings.

Very nice!
I’m floored at how much this reminds me of spice***, yet has its own characteristic differences. Comes on strong but mellows out quickly to a more subtle, enjoyable scent. Not an everyday scent as far as I’m concerned, but rather something put to use when you want to make a statement.

Intoxicating
This is NOT for those who don’t like complicated, intense scents. This is a statement scent. Reminiscent of “Spice Bomb” but with a sophisticated feminine twist. This is a long lasting perfume that will linger after you leave. This is the kind of perfume your lover would smell on an item of your clothing you left behind.

Way too spiced...bordered on medicinal. No wonder people carried around snuff boxes in those days if this is what everyone smelled like.

Spicy heaven
Deliciously spicy and smoky. A softer, more feminine equivalent to Baux by L'Occitane.

Thanks for the comparison! Now I have to get this. I love Baux but it is a bit masculine so I typically mix it with something sweeter. I saw the description and was hoping it would be similar to Architects Club, one of my other favorites.

Didn't last very long, strong licorice undertone.
I didn't care for this one. There was a licorice undertone to it that was both sweet and floral. I didn't care for that. Not long lasting enough to suit me, I had to reapply several times through my workday.

So nice!
I absolutely loved this scent. I love to wear Burberry Brit for her with it, because it is quite spicy. But it also mellows out on its own. It reminds me of SJP Stash but slightly more dark notes. Occasionally I think it’s going to turn powdery on me but it immediately shifts into a nice vanilla musk. A really lovely scent!

Sensual scent
It’s a very sensual fragrance. At first spray you get a heavy dose of cinnamon and black pepper. The juniper starts to creep in as it first starts to dry down. I really don’t get the smell of jasmine in this. After half an hour, you start to get just a little dab of vetiver and then you get a nice dose of vanilla in an excellent way to finish the touch on the dry down. This fragrance is compared to Spicebomb Extreme, which I love more in my opinion. This fragrance is a more heavier and niche version of it. Nonetheless, it’s a great buy!

I love it so much I have more in my queue already and although the bottle price is really steep, I am thinking of buying one. This is a very woodsy, sexy, date night perfume in my opinion. I wish I could vote on it! Not the votes I intended to place, only the last two are ones I placed.

Keeper
Reminds me of spicebomb but not an exact clone. Has its own niche quality & lasts longer than SB. One to definitely get your nose on if you're into spicy frags or spicebomb. Projection & sillage is strong for the first 3 to 4 hours but then it becomes a skin scent but lasts longer on clothes. Nothing groundbreaking but definitely a keeper!

One of my favorites...Full bottle worthy!
1899 is sexy stuff. Definitely unisex...I would love to smell this on my hubs. The juniper note is prominent on my skin, with the cinnamon and pepper in the background. It's a bit loud right after spraying, but settles down nicely in the drydown. Longevity is excellent too; I get 6-8 hours. This works best for me in the fall and winter....I think it would be a bit much in heat and humidity. LOVE IT!!!

I get the Spicebomb comparisons
This is like Spicebomb for grownups. A more mature scent that is really good--if you like it spicy. If not, stay away. Doesn't push out like SB, but lasts longer with better than average longevity on my skin. Seems more appropriate for warmer temps than SB. Most importantly, my wife liked it a lot! All that being said, probably not full bottle worthy to me.

Rare for sure because I've been with scentbird for over a year and NEVER ONCE has my frags been on time. They're constantly late & in fact, here we are June 23rd and my order hasn't even processed yet!!!! Usually it processes around the 9th & takes anywhere from 16 to 19 days to arrive. I CAN BUILD A HOUSE IN LESS TIME!!! No way am I getting June's selection in the month of June. At this rate, mid to late July!!! And I'm left to ponder... WHERE DOES THIS LEAVE JULY'S SELECTION??? COME ON SCENTBIRD... WAKE UP, GET IT TOGETHER!!!!
