Scent of a time traveller
This is HISTORY! Founders of this perfume house knew, what they do want to create and narrate about the bygone epochs.

Old dusty books, lushy flowers dried between pages of old books, time-honored enamelled furnitures. Nothing new, nothing fresh, nothing modern. This is the real art of story-telling without words.

Destination: indoors, older people, both gender, for long conversations.

Like a Pointillist Painting
Although I found the caraway note a bit strong initially, Histoires de Parfums 1876 eventually smooths out into a gorgeous oriental rose reminiscent to my nose of Tauer UNE ROSE CHYPREE. There is lots of texture to this tightly woven composition which is not what I'd call a rose perfume so much as a tapestry of scents.

This reminds me of impressionist or pointillist paintings, which up close look like a bunch of individual brush strokes but from far away produce a whole much more meaningful than the sum of its parts. Beautiful! I'd love to add a bottle of this excellent creation—with great longevity and big sillage, too—to my collection.
