Born on the edge of a century that changed the world order, Ernest Hemingway was involved in the u-turn events of his era. From USA to Spain, from Italy, then Paris to Cuba, Hemingway's journeys tell a lot about his convictions.
Founder of a new genre, his writings depicted a new vision of the world, mixing reality and fiction. Intellectual and activist, compromise was none of his kind, as Hemingway always succeed in finding his own way, and thus, his unique style.
Hemingway's passion was captured in this fragrance. From soldier, to adventurer, journalist and at last writer, his brilliant route invites us to travel, imagine and move to action. This is a tribute to a vibrant and raw man.
Gérald Ghislain, created an oneiric scent for 1899. The top notes of Italian bergamot, juniper and pepper are intended to be the aperitif that sparks the conversation and awakens the palate in anticipation of the meal. Following Papa from Spain to Italy with Mediterranean scents that evaporate to leave place to a darker mood, where the amber and vetiver mixed is reminiscent of the waxed wood of a Cuban bar top. The exotic meets the familiar, the tropical heat is cooled off by a glass of scotch.
Italian bergamot, juniper, black pepper, Orange blossom, Florentine Iris, Cinammon, Vanilla, Vetiver, yellow amber
I was really put off by the bug spray odor it has when first applied but that disappeared quickly, leaving behind lemongrass, pepper and spice notes. Eventually it works down to a lovely woody base
This is a summer scent due to its lightness. Lime, mint and pepper spice with a small hint of floral (not so much as to push it into the feminine zone,) are the best way I can describe this scent.
All those paragraphs written above don’t accurately give an idea of the smell. Maybe instead of trying to write a book about their scent, they should employ someone with a good nose to write what it actually smells like.
I enjoyed it and will purchase again
This handsome fragrance will leave you feeling smart and in control of the room you walk into! Its a fragrant throw with only 3 sprays and will last all day! With the 1st sniff I get strong juniper and bergamot and slowly brings in the black pepper to lay down at the table and leaves you with a masculine creaminess of vanilla, cinnamon, and Vivitar. oh my handsome goodness! Smells so good on my husband!
Nice masculine fragrance.
