Summary: I got this perfume for my birthday. When I got it, I tried a little bit on my wrist, an hour later there was no smell. Also, the perfume smells like ammonia mixed with lemon scent. Next day, I contacted the seller to return the perfume. They refused to give me my refund. I had to file a complain with Amazon, which they granted me. Amazon has a wonderful customer service. I didn't want to spend $300 on a cheap copy of the original.
Summary: I tried a sample of this and I found myself smelling my wrist often. Then I realized that I loved it! I think this is the first non vanilla scent that I love. I am glad to have found it! I would reccommend trying a sample first, everyone has their own tastes.
Summary: Dittos of other reviews, fresh, clean, very pleasant. Wearable anywhere, anytime. There is some wood, spice, flowers, citrus, and a nice swirl during the long drydown. Well blended, great quality, a go to fragrance.
Summary: After some years of engagement with perfumes I more and more look at the smaller forms. This notion also determines my approach to 1872 for men which – being a light Fougère – rather stands in the shadows of the more opulent fragrances of the Clive Christian series. I remember how I first got acquainted with this fragrance – it was quite at the beginning of my travels within the world of perfume. It was in Munich, at the Oberpollinger department store.
Summary: I absolutely love this scent. It is divine. The problem, however, is that I cannot seem to get it to last more than an hour or two. A friend of mine told me she has the same problem. I've tried different pulse points, applying before and/or after lotioning, and still it does not last very long.
