island girl
1804 is a tropical fantasy of a perfume. Speaking for my people, pasty white folks, tropical is something we can refer to but can never really pull off. We just weren't meant to. And though I shout to the heavens that taste is arbitrary, nuance can be the difference between a sunburnt, drunken conga line listing to "Don't Worry, Be Happy" and a quiet hand-in-hand evening walk in the sand.  

Imagine one of the huge white floral perfumes on tropical vacation: Joy sunbathing in Moorea or Amouage Gold diving in Tahiti. Keep the volume and the sillage, but dial back the uptight. 1804 is a spicy floriental in the grand manner. The allusion may be to tropical scents, but this bad girl is a classic French perfume in her bones.   As such, 1804 has exceptional form, but since the implied tone of lushness and leisure takes precedence over structure, form gives way to expression.  Form as seen in a 'classical'  white floral fragrance seems like artifice. Intent and composition are fused in 1804 and it achieves that balletic ambition of surpassing technique and simply moving.  

1804 is a spectacular application of classical technique and should put the corner-cutting school of perfumery on notice. 

Swoon-worthy.

Pineapple attacks!
A warm floral oriental in the grand, classic style. It is very fruity in the begining (not suitable for people who hate pineapple!) . You really must be enamoured of a strong "ananas" topnote in order to be able to enjoy this (I can't). The scent develops into a very strong, remarkably spicy-fruity, gorgeous concoction. Very characteristic, discernible - no easy crowd pleaser - but no fragrance for me, because of the pineapple.
Nevertheless, high quality indeed, elaborated by Sylvie Jourdet who teaches at the ISIPCA in Versailles and who seems to be a professeur "connaisseur", judging by this powerful fragrance.
Don't confound it with "George Sand" by Les Parfums Historiques i.e. MPeG - it is totally different.

Not Afraid to Seduce
Histoires de Parfums 1804 has a decidedly Lolita Lempicka-esque demeanor. And that's a very good thing, according to my nose: voluptuous and sumptuous, a thick comfort scent of the woody floriental variety with an ever-so-slightly masculine edge that makes it wearable by guys and gals alike. Although this composition does not contain the trademark Lolita Lempicka licorice note, there is enough overlap of everything else to impart the same general aesthetic to this perfume. Although this is better...

One of the nicest features of the perfumes of Lolita Lempicka is their declarative nature: they are not afraid to seduce, and neither is 1804. Wearing this perfume is a full-fledged experience in and of itself, not merely an accompaniment to whatever one happens to be doing. Sandalwood, patchouli, benzoin, and vanilla combine to anchor the rich floral notes spiced with a touch of nutmeg. I like it a lot!
