Named after the year of her birth – Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dudevant was to become renowned through her androgynous pseudonym, her pen name, George Sand. The French romantic writer of epical proportions, a great lover and devoted novelist, she was the epitome of the first modern woman. This perfume reflects her generosity and sensuality, with warming Amber, exotic fruity tones and a floral twist. 1804 is a rich and spicy pineapple, this rich and tropical scent transports to a tropical paradise with a twist. This Amber flower bouquet represents George Sand’s bond uniting her with nature and perhaps whisks you away in a moment to somewhere tropical and exotic just like one of her novels would.

HOW IT WEARS
This fragrance is an Eau de Parfum and the longevity with Histories de Parfums is generally about 6 – 8 hours, however we really get around 8 hours with this particular scent. The Pineapple is in the initial burst quite strongly, but give it some time and it settles down. The scent remains fruity and sweet with rich and decadent earthy tones creating depth.
A floral with a fruity twist! If the Hawaiian Pineapple doesn’t win you over in the initial burst, the Corsica Peach and Vanilla are sure to! We love this bright take on a floral, and it certainly takes us to a feel good place after smelling 1804.
ABOUT THE BRAND
From the incredible imagination of Gerald Ghislain, Histoires de Parfums is an olfactive library telling stories of famous characters, writers, poets and years throughout history. With this perfume library, Gerald Ghislain wanted to evoke stories through scent just as books are written with emotions. Each fragrance brings a story to life and each story is to be read on the skin.
