The pleasure of sadism
My favorite in HDP refrences is 1740, which literally captured "Marquis de Sade" in a bottle. It reminds me "the Quills", a movie narrating Marquis de Sade ideas. It is so odd as "Marquis de Sade", fascinating, sensual, tough (because of the leathery and labdanum... Read more

Masculine? Really?
One generous test wearing was all it took for me to fall for this quasi masculine. It started out in wisps of powder and something vaguely reminiscent of lipstick, Moulin Rouge's kissing cousin. The leather note emerged almost instantly, taking center stage, with cedar and patchouli never too far... Read more

Immortelle Strikes Again...
Marquis de Sade is a hard scent to make out.

The perfect leathery chypre
Marquis de Sade is utterly pleasurable. It is deep, well-balanced, rounded, complex and one of the best leather scents around. The name doesn't bother me at all, wearing this fragrance is no torture, but paying the high price for the bottle is an act of debauchery. On the other hand, such a... Read more

Bountiful Unisex Floriental Leather
Histoires de Parfums 1740 is a bountiful floriental leather perfume with lots of texture and enough spice to balance the dark leather note. I would compare this composition favorably with 1876. Both are just gorgeous and have a chypre side, in this case thanks to the labdanum and patchouli notes.... Read more

Mildly bitter and spicy immortelle, dark, balmy and warm. With slight hint of sherry cask in the base.
