All the fragrant, full blossoms of spring inspire this week’s fragrance focus. Histoire de Parfums’ fragrances are at once sensual and intellectual, and 1804 is no exception. Intended to evoke the sensuous and clever George Sand, 1804–so named for her birth year–is a fragrance that suggests both strength and grace, with a base of patchouli, sandalwood, and vanilla, a heart of jasmine, musk, and muguet, and top-notes of fleur de tiare. Indeed, 1804, with its full floral bouquet and earthy anchors, epitomizes the height of spring.
