1869 is a sophisticated and masculine Eau de Cologne fragrance with warm and earthy notes, named after the year that the Acca Kappa brand was first established in Treviso, Italy. With a classic aromatic quality to it – 1869 has a bright opening of Cardamom and Geranium. It then develops into a deeper, earthy fragrance as the Leather, Amber and Vetiver soften this fragrance out. A gorgeous classic fragrance with a rich base but a fresh and bright element to create the perfect balance. Acca Kappa’s 1869 is the perfect fragrance for anyone who has worn and loved Christian Dior’s Farenheit. It’s a touch fresher than Farenheit, but in a similar fragrance family and a great option is you are after something a little left of centre.
Top: Cardamom, Geranium
Middle: Violet Leaves, Iris, Leather, Bay Leaves
Base: Amber, Vanilla, Incense, Vetiver, Cistus
HOW IT WEARS
1869 starts with a fresh tones but quickly develops into a wonderful earthy scent with a definite kick of Cardamom spice in there. This is the Cologne version, which is lighter on the skin and lasts 2 – 4 hours.
We love the refreshing and earthy quality of the Vetiver in the base that really shines as this scent develops on the skin.
