Flattering Masculinity
At first you can perceive an intense, fresh - ethereal, discreetly sweet note, which appears very soft, a little silky and is due to the eucalyptus.

At the same time a fine sweet - fruity note is perceptible, which brings with it a pleasant acidity and comes from the grapefruit.

These two notes are accompanied by a beautiful, slightly bitter - greenish, fruity nuance, which evokes the image of a not yet fully ripened mandarin with its skin and comes from the tangerine
The lemon and lime round off the top note wonderfully.

This constellation is perceptible on my skin for 20 minutes before the heart note unfolds.

The eucalyptus is in the heart note a little more dimmed, but still very well perceptible and unites with a very beautiful aromatic, slightly warm woody note to a fine flattering masculine whole and the Muskat is to be owed
In the background a delicate, invigorating spicy nuance rounds off the heart note pleasantly, which supports the flattering aura wonderfully and comes from the white pepper, which was used in such a way that you don't get sneezing attacks, but it tickles your nose quite discreetly the closer you smell to your skin.

The heart note is perceptible on my skin for 4 hours before the base asserts itself.

Now a light, slightly citric, resinous note is perceptible, which gives the base something clarifying and comes from incense
The incense is very softly, slightly woodsy underlined by the cedar and also gets a sweetish, tart touch from the vetiver.

These 3 notes are supported by a fresh, woody, woody nuance that lets the fragrance fade away wonderfully and comes from the pine cones.

1828 - Jules Verne is a great companion in the spring, summer and autumn months for the man over 30 who is looking for an ethereal, sweet, fruity, aromatic, spicy, resinous and woody scent that possesses a flattering masculinity.

In total, the fragrance lasts 7 hours on my skin.

The Sillage is conceived from the outset in such a way that one is perceived well at a half arm length and this is maintained also 3 hours in such a way, before it reduces itself in quiet steps, until the smell finally completely fades away
I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "Zirkeltanz" for the rehearsal.

Men's scent meets woman
This is my first trial to write a review in English. I chose a men's scent because at a first sight of a scent I pay attention to the name followed by the summary of the fragances. Jules Verne the romantic author of science fiction novels. When I was a child I read them almost all. They seemed to me only old-fashioned but thrilling phantasy-stories. But now I recognize the humour and the political absurdities not only of those times. I even recognize the surrealism of the stories as well. Reading Jules Verne now is a different excitement with different fun because of knowing a lot more of history, science and philosphy. Clearly I expected a special tangy scent: Except of pine and mint it contents no fragances of the middle of Europe. But pine is my favorit coniferous tree and incence is one of my favorit fragances. If Jules Verne imagined to travel round the world within 80 days this collection of fragances reflects this. When I tested this parfume dedicated to Jules Verne the first time it teared away my breath. 1828 is like firy ice. At the same time it is the cool pine-forest in the high mountain and the sparkling eucalytus-trees while they are burning in Australia. Cool smoking incense in a catholic church and the arid scent of the areas in Africa where the scent trees are growing mixed up with the vetiver of South-Asia. 1828 smells clear, rough, smoky, hot and cold. Neither lovely flowers nor sweet fruits are cheering up the senses. Here we are almost landing at the moon. A long time later the grapefruit, the lemon and the tangerine appear softening and calming down the furious travel of fragances. Now the fast travel of Jules Vernes comes to an end and stands still to the more meditative view of the "Green Beam" a humorous love-story of Jules Verne. Lemon-green, something sweet and a little pouder-smell are appearing. At the end of the story the men are looking mesmerized at the green beam. The only woman who forced the men to search for the exact moment of the raising of the green beam is obeying one of these men...
1828 Jules Verne is a scent which rouses me out of exhaustion. It does not calm me at all.
