3.3 out of 5
Not over powering you can smell whats in it
I have gotten alot of compliments on this smell. I am happy i I choose this one
Wanted more wood and smoke
I think all these perfumes smell way too feminine for the scent profiles in the description. It’s really annoying.
historie de parfumes
more bitter and sour for my taste, reminds of exactly what its name implies.. history
I didn’t care for this one as it was to floral for my taste
Not bad, not good.
This was a pleasant scent, just not as expected, or described. I didnt get a very "book" or " library" scent as many others did, instead I smelled spices, especially clove. Not that it was unpleasant just different for me. The scent also didnt last long once i sprayed it on, it kinda just fizzled out after an hour or so. Again nice smell, just wanted more
Actually brought back memories of the late 60's
When I first spray it on, it is a bit too sweet, with a slightly medicinal smell. On drydown, it is fabulous! Not too overpowering, and a faint memory of the fragrance is still thwre at the end of the day.
My fiancé loves it￼
When I put this cologne￼, the women go crazy 😜
Just the perfect spicy scent I was after when I chose this
did not like
did not like the scent at all
It really does not smell good at all.
Too overpowering for me!
I couldn’t wear, gave me a headache.
Not what I was expecting
I was a little nervous about this choice. I picked it because of the chocolate and clove notes. However I'm not a huge fan of patchouli so I really didn't know what to expect. The first spray smelled heavily of patchouli and I was extremely disappointed. It was the only thing I could smell for the first few minutes. As it dries, the smell of the rose and the peach really comes to the forefront. The notes of clove and chocolate never surfaced for me. So, I like it because I love roses and peaches but I really wanted that chocolate-clove smell. I don't understand the people who got leather and cognac at all. It's very fruity floral.
Overall I liked it...has a strangely comforting quality I greatly enjoyed. Didn't really notice it too much throughout the day, but when I did it was nice.
Would buy a full size, if I already had every other scent I wanted.
I liked this perfume. It’s super complex and I’ve never smelled anything like it. It was interesting and pretty. I probably wouldn’t buy it again, but I enjoyed it while I wore it.
Wait for the drydown
Ok at first, it smells like mosquito repellant but the dry down is so gorgeous on this. Long lasting too.
everyone has a different chemical composition however this perfume smells like when you walk into a room of mold that hasnt been paired out
not my choice
I didn't like the way it smelled. Not sure how to describe it beyond that. My favorite scent is Gucci Guilty so maybe that helps. Gross
Histoires De Parfums 1969
I am so surprised about the other reviews! More reason to try things out yourself bc this was perfect! Very sensual. If you like Mark Jacobs’ Decadence, you will love this.
Reminiscent of evening strolls in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Crisp yet Smokey and elegantly mysterious. Mystically enchanting!
The fragrance opens with a blast of pachouli and I worried at first that it would be too masculine, but immediately the spicy scents of clove and chocolate start to unfold. Behind that, the peach note develops, and the dry-down finishes with a soft, warm rose with what I believe is the cardamom rounding it out. This is definitely not a hippy scent, and is hard for me to classify--maybe a bit mysterious? It does seem like a scent from the past, but not old fashioned, which is unique. It lasts 5+ hours on me, and is intense for the first 2 hours before becoming more subtly floral and soft.
I love this scent
It didn’t smell bad. Just not my thing. Kinda smelled like a matured affluent Caucasian woman. Nothing wrong with it. Just not my vibe
Very unique smell.
Not for me
It’s not bad. Just not for me. Smells more manly and maybe for an older person.
Smelling straight from the bottle, it reminded me of a medical ointment (think ben-gay). Scent mellows out a bit and softens on the skin. Still, the main scent I'm getting is just smoky clove, like the cigarettes goths smoke. Not for me.
Doesn’t smell great on me
I was hoping for a hippie, patchouli scent but I didn’t get that at all on me. I smell peach but no coffee or chocolate. Not something I would buy.
this scent pleasantly surprised me
Not for me
Gets better after dry down, but not for me
The Best I've Received so Far
Dark, reserved, sensual, perfectly unisex. Doesn't last too long after the initial punch. On me, the dark chocolate notes really come through.
Grandma’s Purse mixed with Deep Woods Off
I waited in anticipation for this - I changed my que last minute from “Light Blue” to this... 😞 Not for me in the slightest - and with it being unisex I thought maybe my hubby would like it for himself. He spritzed it and asked why I would want him to smell like “a mix of granny’s purse found at a flea market and bug spray?” I the scent profile is right on - but not in the whimsical, earthy way I thought. This is why I ❤️ Scentbird - I get to try scents without financial regret.
Spicy & summery.
not a bad scent for the right taste
Not a bad scent. just not for me!
Campfire & Warm Sweaters
This is my first scent delivery, and I’m quite thrilled that the description was so accurate. I walked around the house asking random children and adults to smell me upon arrival, and it seemed to be pleasing to most, although my daughter claims I should spray my mouth because I had coffee breath. My partner didn’t notice the difference between this and my $13 Pacifica (full bottle), so I can’t say I’d buy it again but it is pretty and a little sexy.
Odd but I still liked it
Didn’t last very long. Very interesting fragrance.
I don’t like how it smells
Smelled like the description
Very disappointed in this one; It’s just smells stale
Don't like at all
This smells like licorice meets flowery musk ... Not a fan at all on my husband! He hated it too ... It went right in the trash.
This is so beautiful my 16 year old daughter and I both love it. It’s a wear anywhere scent.
this is the first scent I've ordered from this and like the scent, it's not too overwhelming or chemistry smelling
Something different from my norm
Not my usual scent but found I really liked it
never buy it!
Much more masculine than the notes would indicate
This definitely has a lot of bitter dark chocolate, but the other notes tend hard toward the masculine given the introduction of clove. It is almost smoky.
This smells better than I expected! It’s like a French cafe and old bookstore next to each other. I adore it!!
Lighter than I expected
Warm and relaxing
My husband likes this one on me!
Just didn't care for it.
The first sample I have gotten that I did not like. Still love the process and choosing new scents to fall in love with.
Just didn’t care for it. Not bad, just not my taste
Is not my favorite!
Was okay. Definitely not a favorite of mine.
I hate it dnt send me no more i want to return itreturn
I hate it i want to return it asap never send it anymore
I personally don't like it
Nice lasted long
Nice lasted quite a while
Histories de Parfums
Makes me think of an older woman
Was a nice scent but not one of my favorites! Too light. Didn't last long
Soft and spicy
Love this, but it’s more suited for fall/winter. Super groovy. Nothing basic about this one.
not a fan
wasn’t the best
Too fruity don’t like the peach smell
Not really my taste, still trying to figure out what I like in a perfume though.
Sweet spice smell gives this a sophisticated cocktail lounge type of feel. Like you should be sitting in a high back leather chair with a nice old fashioned.
Not for me
I should have known when it had patchouli in it I wouldn't like it, that's on me. But it's literally all I could smell! This one is something I'll have to give away.
Could be better
Of the scents I've tried so far this one doesn't last that long scent wise. So if you go out somewhere you'd definitely have to re apply a few times.
Histoires de Parfum 1969
I love the patchouli base in this fragrance. It’s much friendlier than most.
Not my vibe.
Too strong for me. Felt old and dirty to me..
Love this fragrance
Its soft but not flowery. An unusual scent that I really like.
Strong clove smell.
Smells too much like cloves.
Didn’t like it
Simply warm and wonderful.
I love wearing this perfume as it is a warm scent. It's summer now but I do not feel that it is heady, or overpowering. It mixes well with my skin and is wonderful to still smell after a long day.
A bit strong but I like it . Gives me a real 70’s vibe
I dont think the scents blended well. Maybe it didnt mix with my own chemistry well. The chocolate is very overpowering and seems to muddle the other components.
The opening is very astringent-like. Maybe too much alcohol? Then it turns I think spicy, but not in a good away. It was somewhat pleasant once, but all in all I didn’t like it. Montale’s Aoud forest reminded me of this scent.
perfectly balanced, a bit bohemian, a bit sophisticated
Stinks. Smells like bug spray. Disappointing. Meh....
I was looking forward to trying something new. Hate throwing money away....
This BLEW ME AWAY! Unlike anything else ive smelled. Its so...spicy yet citrucy...a little sweet...theres so much going on. Truly in love and want to buy a full size NOW.
Smells better than I thought awesome!
It smells like leather bound books and rich mahogany with some fine aged whisky thrown in. It's warm and masculine. It smells like sex with 70s-80s Burt Reynolds. I don't know how else to describe it. This is my new favorite perfume. I'm thoroughly obsessed.
This is probably not for everyone, but fortune favors the bold. I absolutely loved this from the first whiff of it. I'll be purchasing a full bottle very soon. It's so unique, so strident; it bursts into your consciousness. I have a new favorite and it is 1969.
Love the scent
Smells great. It’s strong but I like it strong scents. Has a sweet but spicy scent.
sweet and empowering
sweet smell that says youre ready to go out for the night
My all time fav
Out of all the fragrances I've tried, This is on top!
The scent from the bottle almost turned me off but Histores de Parfum has sold me on another scent of theirs. This is an adaptive cologne. On me it’s almost peachy, with spicey and earthy undertones that compliment the fruity aroma. On my little brother it is more cedar wood and citrus dominant. So this scent may not work with your chemistry all that well but you won’t know until you try.
Simply not my taste
I love smelling like a hippie, don't get me wrong, but with my perfume I want a certain j'ne ce qua, you know? Honestly I'm addicted to smelling expensive, and although it is nice in its own way, this one didn't do it for me.
amazing clean scent
Can certainly smell the cardamom. A sexy and intriguing scent.
This is reminiscent of a Tom Ford fragrance which can easily be used for male or female wearers. I loved the complexity and deep notes of this fragrance.
I really wanted to like this. I was so excited to get it. I tried it three different times and I hate it. to me it smells like citronella I just didn't like it at all
I shouldn't have picked this one, very prominent rose
Draws inspiration from 1969, so the fragrance has a "dusty" quality to it & the "dirty" patchouli that was closely associated with hippies. I don't mind either of those things, my issue is the rose. I don't normally like rose & this has lots of it. If I spray it from a distance it's okay. I like it more after it dries down but I'm still a bit disappointed with this one.
Doesn't stay long
Wasn’t sure at first smell...it was very powdery, but after dry down it is warm and spicy and very lovely with my body chemistry.
Best fragrance I’ve gotten yet!
Did not like the scent.
Way too classic for me
Nice scent. Doesn't last long on me though.
Nice combination of rose and a smooth spice
Honey, you are not my jam.
Clean Classic Fragrance and immediately took me back to that time and the distinguished attitudes of Men of that era!
