Scentrack: Sneaker Pimps - Velvet Divorce Do not mess with 1740. This is a destroyer that annihilates all volatile molecules in 10 feet diameter. A perfume equivalent nuclear blast. Against Marqius abandon all hopes. The kick of raw leather whip right in the head, supported by burning birch,... Read more

A pale attic type of fragrance.
1740 was an experience I will always remember. However, it was not very pleasurable. I got a good deal on a travel size bottle so I decided to opt for it. This fragrance starts off with a blast of patchouli, a note that I am not fond of honestly unless it is blended very well. In this case it is... Read more

My current favourite
I love Histoires de Parfums as a house and this is the jewel for me. This gorgeous, hedonistic leather and immortelle combination and all the complexity surrounding it is mischievious and mysterious. Pleas e see my video review

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. It has an almost booze-like quality with quite liberal use of immortelle, dark candied fruit mixed with spices, then adding leather and tobacco as time passes. I am not a fan of immortelle, and as it contains a lot of it, I can't ever see myself wanting... Read more

Perfume genres are based on composition (components): chypre (oakmoss), floral, gourmand, fougere (coumarin), oriental (labdanum), fruitchouli. Sometimes these categories are helpful. They hold together. For instance, I like chypres and I don’t like sweet gourmands. But there are exceptions... Read more

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.
