Are you afraid of Marquis de Sade? Don’t be. For this intimately decadent creation is pure pleasure and not an ounce of pain. Sensual, alluring darkness and mouth watering, mind numbing comfort collapse together in a soft like cashmere embrace of boozy leather, pipe tobacco smoke, dusty spices and dried fruit sweetness.

Complex and flawlessly blended, Histoires de Parfums 1740 has the unctuous slip of precious oils, enticing the skin with an intoxicatingly warm, autumnal, dusky aura.

The bold, earthy beginning with its flashes of hot rum and zesty bergamot soon mellows into rich, soft leather with a semi gourmand allure enhanced by the maple syrup tones of immortelle and the creamy soft touch of vanilla. The blissfully relaxing dry down it’s a whispered lullaby of smoky, labdanum amber, patchouli and gloriously gentle wood notes.

There are many perfumes that have a story to tell, they can awaken memories, recall pictures to the mind’s eye and evoke emotions. Gérald Ghislain, the man behind Histoires de Parfums, wants more: he wants to write history, namely perfume history – with perfumes which not only tell stories, but also tell of history. Inspiration for Ghislain’s scents are the outstanding personalities of their time, influential characters from bygone eras; or even whole periods themselves, eras that influenced history with their zeitgeist.

“Each fragrance is a wonderful memory and behind each memory lies a wonderful story,” says Ghislain, the storyteller, whose current occupation was a long-cherished dream. The bon viveur and adventurer, born in the South of France and brought up in Morocco had already practiced all sorts of other professions when he eventually followed his dream to study at the celebrated ISIPCA in France. In 1999 he established his own company Histoires de Perfumes.
