Histoires de Parfums - Characters - 1828 -Jules Vernes
"1828 - Jules Verne" by Histoires de Parfums is dedicated to the visionary author of the famous adventure and travel novels. Born in 1828 in Nantes, with the nearby Atlantic Ocean a constant presence in his young life, this was a man dedicated to the outdoors, nature, and the fresh thrill of discovery. Accordingly, 1828 is a fresh, aromatic spicy fragrance for men who dare. There is a wonderful contrast between the bright citrus and eucalyptus notes in the opening, and the dark woods, vetiver, and incense in the base. But in between, we have the thrilling spiciness of nutmeg and pepper heralding a mood of excitement, brought about by exploration and discovery. 1828 is everything that the modern globetrotter needs to bring the questing spirit of Jules Verne back into being.
