Histoires de Parfums 1826 is a great perfume for those that like the idea of wearing a white floral perfume but don’t like white florals. 1826 is a white floral accompanied by her court of patchouli, amber and spice.
1826 opens as a patchouli floral with a hint of cinnamon. I’m reminded of a more masculine version of the opening of the “original” Prada. I say more masculine because I get anise and cinnamon with a delicate, almost soapy lavender… Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely type lavender on top the delicate white florals. 1826 waxes her upper lip going for a more feminine appearance. I get this soft, delicate floral that reminds me of peach blossoms over anise patchouli. There’s a banana ylang-ylang with vanilla incense. The dry down is a creamy white musk.
I have noticed that this one wears more floral in warmer weather and more spicy/woodsy in cooler weather. I love a fragrance that changes with the seasons.
Notes listed include bergamot, mandarin, white flowers, violet, cinnamon, ginger, patchouli, amber, incense, blond wood, white musk and vanilla. Launch date 2001.
Give 1826 a try if you like florientals. Or perfumes like the orignal Prada, Rancé Laetitia, Fresh Cannabis Santal, Tom Ford White Patchouli and/or NEST Midnight Fleur. I think that 1826 is unisex but it does lean more towards the feminine end because of the florals.
1826 has above average projection and longevity.
Histoires de Parfums 1826 comes in 3 sizes with prices ranging from $36-$205 at Beautyhabit. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A patchouli floriental – It’s one of “those” florals that I like. I would probably buy a bottle if I weren’t already content with the bottles of original Prada, Fresh Cannabis Santal and Tom Ford White Patchouli that I already own.
