It's nice on the dry down. But not what I expected also smells a little old, as in on the shelf open too long in the decant bottle.

Yuck. In my opinion, this is really awful. The only way I can describe it is that it smells like old lady mixed with moth balls.

Learned my lesson with gender neutral scents. Although there is nothing offensive about this - it is definitely too masculine for me. Looking forward to my November scent as this one is just not my thing.

I wasn't too crazy about the scent when I first sniffed it, however, once on & it had a moment to dry I really did grow to love it. It is a very interesting fragrance. Sometimes I get a vague whiff of Vanilla Fields or another 90's vanilla fragrance... but not in a bad way. I really love it!

Has an "older" scent to it. After it sits on your skin a while, you can smell the chocolate. Heavier fragrance that I would not wear everyday.

I just received Histoires de Parfums 1969 and I really like it. I've worn it twice. If I wake up at night and can still smell it, I know I really like it when I inhale deeply while I am still half asleep. It goes on and to me it smells like sweet candy but then smooths out to warm wintery spice. I think it must be the combination of cardamom and patchouli. I think I will like this one more the more I wear it.

Opens with a slight touch of cardamom and rose. On my skin, it dries down to a cozy, chocolate gourmand with peach in the background. After about an hour, I get a light coffee note that rises and falls but the chocolate still reins supreme throughout. It is unique and the notes blend smoothly. I would definitely wear this in the Fall/Winter. It's lovely. If you like gourmands, you will probably like this fragrance.

It's OK. The fragrance notes were a much different experience for me than for some other reviewers - on me it's straight up Lemon Merengue Baby Powder. And it reminds me of another scent that I can't put my finger on. Not my favorite.

1969 is a pleasant but odd perfume. Don't get me wrong, it works really well my chemistry and I love wearing it. I just can't find the words to describe it. It's light and clean with a musky undertone. The only real drawback for me is that it gives me a slight headache if I spray to much so I find it good for the office when I want to smell nice but I don't it to linger.

Not at all what I was expecting given the price of this brand. If you want to smell like 1869 instead of 1969 then this is the perfume for you. It takes vintage to a whole nother' level. I thought it would be similar to Maison Martin Margiela Replica fragrances in that it evokes a time period or a place while still smelling modern enough to be wearable. Two thumbs down! The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is because unfortunately it has intense staying power.

Not overpowering for a patchouli based scent. Kind of hippy meets fruity, and I dig it! So far it has a lasting essence if not over bodied all day. Definitely a lighter side to patchouli. The cardamom spice gives it a warmth and the peach gives it a little extra happy. Reminds me vaguely of a doggy bath scent we use (in a good way.)

I took a heart off because it lacked staying power on me, as others have said. I did like the scent, has some sexy swagger. Just wish it's dry down...didn't dry away....but maybe that's just me, or maybe of their was a body cream to layer it would last....I'm excited to try the others in this line

This scent is very strong when you initially put it on. As time passes the scent becomes very light and Airy. Still, smells great for compliments when you're passing by someone and they get a gust of wind it's an automatic compliment. The scent it's very sexy and flirty.

I like Histoires de Parfums 1969. Although it has patchouli notes, it's not at all a hippie scent. With its floral and coffee notes, somehow it makes me think of New Wave films from that era. It smells modern. On me, alas, it doesn't really grab hold and last.

I sprayed it on paper to smell it & I wasn't sure about this one at first but I sprayed it on myself & I actually like the way it smells on me. It is a spicy warmer scent which I really like. My only complaint is that it doesn't stay around very long at all.

I am a big fan of the perfume house, Histoires De Parfums, unfortunately to my nose 1969 isn't one of their masterpieces. This brew starts out with a blast of murk, synthetic citrus muddled with a hint of syrupy peach which disappears quickly leaving behind an almost wood cleaner-like smell. There is a hint of spice but it's dirty and reminiscent of sweat, not clean, earthy, and bright as the listed spice notes should be. The patchouli and rose notes are all but lost in this murky blend. The coffee and chocolate are present in the dry down but not in a pleasing way, they are more suited to ambient house scents than something one would want on their skin. 1969 is neither pleasant nor sexual as this brew is touted to be. Perhaps this murky, incohesive elixir would be better named 1769. Instead of a maid epitomizing the sexual revolution, this brew is a tavern house wench scrubbing wood tables with a dirty rag and linseed oil when she isn't serving the morning coffee to her unwashed customers. She can smell the bushel of rotting peaches she still has to peel for pies, mixing unsavorily with the other odors including the third rates spice and chocolate from the traveling merchant who wares are older than she. All in all a terrible mess of perfume whose edges are not blended but rather pushed together haphazardly like a kindergardeners attempt to make perfume out of household cleaners, pantry cullings, and the dregs of a few scented oil bottles. Old English wood cleaner, a cup of mocha joe, and the sweat from a medieval spice merchant. One heart. Given the scent the sillage and longevity are more than adequate.

I feel as though this could be a good unisex scent after also testing it on a male. It has a spicy, musky scent with a nice dry down and lingering bottom notes. It's a true woodsy oriental to me, which is my favorite variety of scent. I would strongly recommend this scent if you're a fan of scents like Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black, YSL Black Opium, and to some degree both Black or Velvet Orchid by Tom Ford (though both more floral but in same kind of vein of fragrance family). This was my first scent from this brand and I hope we see more scents from Histoires de Parfums here on Scentbird in the future!

Love it. Not too much in the way of fruit or flowers, smells very woody and spicy on my skin. And a little bit dirty from the patchouli, but woody, spicy, "dirty" in a good way. It *is* 1969 afterall.

Second time ordering this one and I love it! After not having it for a month I really missed it. Too bad The full bottle is so expensive because I can't afford that. I hope Scentbird never takes this one away, I need to order it every other month for a while. It's the perfect combo of sweetness and spice for me with a nice dose of amber, a little patchouli, a little fruit, floral and chocolate? It all adds up to a little sweet and spice that kind of reminds me of rootbeer. Some might not find this one very sweet, but I don't usually like sweet scents, so this is the one I go to when I want something sweet. Lasts a long time and the drydown hours later is awesome with some sandalwood in it I think.

I love this fragrance, it doesn't smell at all fruity, or flowery on me, instead I get lots of spice! I can smell cinnamon and a clove like scent very strongly, which tend to mellow over time to a creamy, sweet, spicyness. The sillage is moderate, and the longevity is excellent, lasting over eight hours without reapplication. At the end it becomes more of a skin scent, only lightly detectable.

This is an interesting scent. On first spritz there was no coffee, chocolate, musk or peaches i keep reading of. It was what I can only describe as salty pepper. The salt was overpowering & the peppery tickled my nose to sneezing After a while I did pick up on a much different fragrance. Something creamy and vaguely sweet. Have tried it 2 mire times and can still day it is interesting. I don't know what to make of it but am not revolted. Not sure how anyone is picking up peach, chocolate, coffee or even patchouli. Makes me think i received the wrong sample.

I wasn't sure how to take this scent at first. It reminds me of wood furniture polish. Like Pledge. It has a deep orange citrus...kind of oily smelling. If that's a thing. It's very dark and smells very mature (think elderly woman, but with "old money"). It also reminds me of Colonial Williamsburg when I first smelled it. Something "old world" about the scent. It has since grown on me. You have to give this one a chance if you don't like it immediately. Mist it/wear it time and time again and then you should either grow to appreciate it or really hate it.

I enjoyed this one. It is spicy and sweet. The first time I smelled it I thought of root beer. After it settles down it becomes a nice creamy scent. After using it for a while I could pick out the notes they are talking about, peach at first, then white chocolate and patchouli, and finally a light musk. But these are blended in a way that each one doesn't stand out all the time but more like a tapestry of the notes and every once in a while you will notice one or the other. At first I was spraying loads of this because the beginning would fade and I was getting to know it. But then I noticed even though the silage fades, I could still smell the drydown which is very nice the next morning. So after that I would just spray a few and enjoy it all the way down to the end. It also lasts days on my scarf. 2 weeks into using it I thought about going for another month of it because the scent is addictive, but after that I did get a bit tired of it. To me it is pretty sweet, and I don't usually go for sweet smells, I usually go for orientals. This had enough oriental notes in it that I enjoyed it as something a little different for me and it is perfect for spring. If you like super sweet scents, this might not seem that sweet to you. For me, it was just sweet enough that I got sick of it for everyday. I might pick up an alacart vial for every once in a while wear. The full bottle is super expensive!

I was very disappointed with the fragrance...so much so...that I wondered if I even received the correct scent. I could not detect any peach, chocolate, or coffee only a very strong medicinal scent that never changed even with the passing of time.

While I would agree that this is different, it's not special. It smells a little like that pink Double Bubble bubblegum with a followed by a touch of cinnamon. Evokes the memory of a cheap drugstore scent that was popular among some of my friends while we were in middle school. My teenaged son, however, likened it to the spray we used last summer to ward off fruit flies. How's that for sexy? For all of the wonderful things I read online prior to adding this to my que, I am disappointed. The longevity is poor, maybe an hour at best. After that, my husband said he couldnt smell it at all on my wrists/neck or my clothing. The sillage, also disappointing😕 I guess I bombed this month with choosing this one.

This is amazing. It smells like peaches and roses and slightly musky on first spray. You can feel the patchouli and chocolate floating around somewhere in the background but it's not super prominent. I have been trying so hard to find something fruity that isn't reminiscent of bath and body works or escada and this is it. Absolutely beautiful. I got a bunch of compliments tonight on it wearing it out for the first time.
