A beautiful opening, the chocolate clove and rose is what i smell most.
The dry down i am not too sure about though,
the rose starts turning very musky and powdery, in a an old makeup smelling way.
I will probably use up my sample but won't buy a full bottle.

Straight forward, uncomplicated candied peach and rose with sheer spices. I personally don't find the chocolate a dominant note. It's sweet and edible. A comfort scent. However, not going to be a full bottle for me. I already own, and prefer, Isis by Agonist for this style of lightly spiced and heavily candied fruit.

عطریست ناز، مهربون و خوشبو!

با بوی ترمیم و سبک شده ی هلو شروع میشه و آروم آروم شکلات بهش اضافه میشه و در دوز کم رز، یاس و مشک! البته رزش به شدت حرفه ای ترکیب شده و اصلن بوی خالص رز رو حس نمیکنین! به نظرم رز جوری در شکلات حل شده که ظعم یه ویفر خوشمزه شکلاتی رو تداعی کنه! عطر به شدت خوشمزس و جوری که میتونه گرسنتون کنه پس همینجا توصیه میکنم با شکم خالی از این عطر استفاده نکنید! دقیقن برای من باعث تقویت اشتها شد پس باز توصیه میکنم دوستانی که قصد رژیم لاغری دارن این عطرو نزنن! :)

خب بوش میشه گفت بعد از 15 دقیقه اول دیگه تغییری نمیکنه و خطی میشه! پخش بوش در 1 ساعت اول خوبه ولی بعدش کاملن میشینه رو پوستتون و پخش نمیشه! دوامشم روی پوست من حدود 6 ساعت بود که برای این چنین رایحه ای خوبه! از قیمت بالاش که بگذریم، این عطر به 1 دلیل ارزش خرید نداره که تا الان تو ریویو ها ندیدم کسی بهش اشاره کنه: این عطر به شدت مشابه با ادکلن چاکلت گریدی از برند مونتال ئه. 15 دقیقه اولش فرق داره ولی پس از 15 دقیقه دقیقن میشه همون فقط شاید اندکی دوز هلوی مونتال کمتره! ادکلن چاکلت گریدی مونتال تقریبن نصف این ادکلن قیمت داره، دوامش تقریبن 2 برابر اینه و پخش بوش به شدت قوی تر جوری که تا 4-5 ساعت هر کسی رو اطراف شما متوجه ادکلنتون میکنه برعکس این ادکلن که روی پوست میشینه! پس اگه اینو میخواین برین بدون تست و با خیال راحت چاکلت گریدی رو بخرید و منو دعا کنید! توصیه دیگه ام اینه که از اونجایی که بوی ویفر هلو و شکلات، رایحه باکلاسی محسوب نمیشه، اگه براتون این اتفاق خیلی مهمه باید بی خیال این ادکلن بشید چون بعدن جای مناسب برای استفاده از این ادکلنو پیدا نمی کنید و شاید ادکلن منحصر به تعطیلات بشه براتون!

This is great fun: juicy peach, chocolate and rose open this - it is just delicious and gourmand in the best way (not laden with sugar syrup). For me, the woods and spices dry down to something that reminds me a lot of Feminité du Bois, although this is an altogether happier scent.

I have had lots of compliments with this one. It doesn't feel huge but the sillage is obviously good. It does feel like a perfume of two parts: the joyous, juicy opening and the more transparent woody dry down.

I love it, and it works well in almost any environment, but it does not move me the way some fragrances do. That's what is so hard to pin down, isn't it: the fragrance that pulls the heart strings?

The first time I tested this, I almost fell in love. The cloves made for an exotic hot chocolate with some creamy peach. It didn't last on my skin, though. I gave it another chance. And the chocolate had all but disappeared into a vague spices "have you been baking?" vibe. And then I tried it again. It has fallen firmly into the dislike category for me. Just spices now; and they're so heavy. It feels like a warm exotic bakery experiment. It's creamy and smooth; but so thick and heavy, and the tiniest bit synthetic. I just don't enjoy wearing it.

Take a look at that pyramid . . . . It promises quite a story, doesn't it? From the ripe fruits of innocence, to the flowers your should wear in your hair if you're going to San Francisco, to (of course) headshop patchouli and coffee--it appears that the stages of this perfume should transport you through the latter half of 60s in the Haight, and perhaps beyond. It's a nice idea, actually, and no less preposterous than us Yanks creating scented soap with Marie Antoinette graphics on the wrapping. Unfortunately, it doesn't really work. The fruit smells like candy, the florals don't pop, and the patchouli isn't strong enough. None of the perfume's stages are distinct, so what you actually smell is a sweet candied peach on top of a castrated patchouli, which then vanishes at the four-hour mark--in other words, if memory serves, something not miles away from the latest incarnation of Miss Dior. A boutique-made almost designer knockoff that alludes to the past, present, and future of Haight Street (especially given its current retail environment and prices)? This would be a sort of hoot if it were the lastest release from Etat Libre d'Orange. But it's not. As a Uncle Luca might say, this needed work.

Usually I do not like prominent peach nor chocolate in perfume.
Also, I'm not very much a gourmand fan, nor a fruitchouli one.
But... jtd is right: here is a lesson to be learned.

This is a contemporary classic with a merry and defiant character: playful, sweet and spicy.
If only all revolutions were so beautifully balanced.

I tend not to love fragrances with heavy patchouli, but there were so many other notes in this scent that I tend to like so I figured I'd give it a shot. I'm so glad I only bought a small sample, because the patch is SO strong in here! Combined with the strong rose and fruit notes, all I'm getting is potpourri.

Aromatic, slightly medicinal chocolate on opening. Floral with spicy undertones. Wow, something reminds me of Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers Love; an almost aromatic fruity floral. Oriental… but not, and one of the least gourmandy gourmand's I've smelled. 1969 doesn't have the rich, heavy sweetness of most orientals/gourmands. I just noticed that someone said this is similar to CdG 2 and omigod yes, it's like a slightly warmer, spicier version! Stays pretty light during the drydown as well. Like all HdP fragrances well blended and really interesting.

Say Angel (which I love) represents one side of the patchouli-gourmand spectrum in all its shrieking glory. 1969 sits on the far end of the other, as calm and collected as they come. The classic dna is unmistakably present in the combination of fruit, chocolate and patchouli here, but 1969 replaces the tropical fruit basket with warm spiced peach, and forgoes the ditzy caramel sweetness for the decadence of plush, velvety rose. There is even the slightest suggestion of sweat--maybe a fine dust of cumin or the general spiciness stemming from the clove and patchouli--which gives the scent just enough of a lived in feel to prevent it from becoming overly precious.
All in all, I find 1969 to be a romantic scent, but in a modern, light hearted and completely unsentimental way. A pleasant bagatelle if you will. Lovers of mild gourmands and chocolate should give this a try, as well as those who enjoy spiced fruits (Feminite du Bois comes to mind in particular).

I miss this one.

I remember the very first time I experienced it. I was so taken by it that I sat down on a lounge nearby the department store and just kept inhaling... the scent was not just a perfume.. it was, as I described, an experience. The rose and the chocolate is like nothing else and if you have a little bit of a bohemian soul or enjoy left field creations, this could please you.

It is an exciting, well balanced, enlivening, delectable scent that I haven't anything to compare it too as it's not like any of Ford's chocolate offerings or any other brand for that matter. It smells like quality and it is.

If you are after something with huge sillage I wouldn't recommend this.. you're not going to knock out a room of people. But it gets its point across at a close distance and is a wonderful scent for you and you alone, or when you need to remind yourself of how powerful, wonderful, magical, capable you are.

Bright, airy, fun and crisp. The blood orange(Fruit of the sun) hits you in the face. The initial spray is like cutting into an orange and it squirts you in the face-bam! It's an eye-opener. Now we're talking about a perfume that gets your attention. One that takes you out of your space and time. It's about time.
Coffee and cloves, yes, a bit disconcerting as you read the notes. Cardamom, chocolate, musk and patchouli too? It's all there. It seems like such a jumbled mix your head spins at first, but then it all comes together to a delightful happiness.
You're walking down an herbal path of gardens with the Partridge Family hiding in the flowering bushes singing their songs while Jimi and Janis are belting it out in your head. Yeah, this perfume is tripping you down the discordant path of 1969 and it's all Sunshine happiness. It lasts for hours on end and it's full-bottle worthy.

I don't find it naughty or especially "revolte", it's just an INCREDIBLY great smelling sophisticated (peachy) patchouli. I was looking for such a perfume a long time already. It soothes my hippie-soul without revealing too much;) my next full bottle.
my husband adores it on me, too.

ps.: I really appreciated the samples-policy on the HDP website. It's fun, quick and doesn't cost a fortune...

1969 o il "profumo della rivolta" si inaugura con una nota dolcissima di pesca polposa che non è proprio il mio genere ma che evolve, per fortuna, su chiodi di garofano e cardamomo, con punte di cioccolata e caffè. non un profumo gourmand ma piuttosto un accordo sofisticato che oltre a sentori edibili si sostiene su fiori (la rosa, in primo luogo) virando su un fondo muschiato e che sa di sapone. non molto persistente, un po' troppo dolciastro per i miei gusti. non male.

One of my most beloved fragrances. 1969 is indescribably joyous and naughty. It's about rose, peach, chocolate and cardamom; respectively by greatness. You should try to understand how delectable and gourmand this perfume is!

1969 opens with extremely sweet dusky rose, cardamom and peach and then chocolate and patchouli appear. It's like half burnt caramel cream with sexy glossy brown color! It's balmy/milky, spicy floral, plasticy gourmand and virile in an extremely happy way. Enormous longevity, intense projection.

This is my favorite of the histoires so far in the discovery set I got. It's sweet and fruity, but powdery and coffee/chocolate scented at the same time. It's the most mature sweet fruity scent I've ever tried, and one spray of this takes over my nose. I look forward to testing this out more. As of right now, if I had to pick 1 bottle to buy, this would be it.

Patchouli is a difficult note for me. A little bit adds perfect spice, but too much leads straight into hippie hell. With a name like 1969, I was apprehensive, but this perfume is actually an amazingly well-balanced composition. I don't think it's too sweet at all - rather, it's a collection of very realistic peach, chocolate, and dry patchouli harmonising surprisingly well. Yes, it IS sweet, but not cloyingly so. It shares very, very little DNA with Angel, and I see that as a good thing. After eight hours, it is close to the skin, but there's still a pleasant woody-chocolate note there. Love it.

Just received this...I know I have smelled this before!!??!. So, what is it? Etra by Etro. 1969 has a very sweet yet tangy musk to it. I really like this...some have mentioned this to be overtly sweet, I would disagree.

This is one of those fragrances that you need to give a few minutes to before judgment. At first spray, yes you'd detect sweetness, florals, however, that is in the very front. Once you allow the fragrance to settle, you get a drydown that is out of this world!! Men don't shy away due to the reviews read....this fragrance is not too sweet that a man could not wear. Quite unisex, in fact IMHO I think it smells really nice on me. By the way, this does hint at Loccitane's Eav Des Bavx, the drydown is very reminiscent.

I think that I want this one. Very light and sweet. Seems like an easy one that could be worn at anytime place etc. Its funny though because with the first sniff it reminded me a bit of the first harajuku love. Does anyone else get that or is it just me?

I am looking at my empty box of incense by "1969 Histoires de Parfums." These were 24 batons of incense.
All gone. Does anyone, know where I can get this product. It is not their liquid scent, but their incense. It was originally bought in Paris, I believe.
Thanks.

1969 Opens with a lot of sweetness. First, a load of juicy fruity notes. I smell peach and white floral notes. Then the scent turns darker. A dark mix of coffee chocolate comes through. I also smell a sweet light rose at this point, combined with white floral notes. Still quite sweet. The cardamom and clove start to appear now, serving as a counterweight for all the sweetness. There is still a lot of peach in there. Next one up is a white musk. Then, the perfume changes again. The rose becomes less prominent, but the base of this coffee chocolate note gets a bit stronger, together with a bit of patchouli. Still plenty of peach throughout, also in the drydown.

Performance is good: sillage is moderate to heavy, longevity moderate to long.

Strange scent. Ridiculously sweet, lovely spicy, and that coffee chocolate note is awesome. Never thought I would like a gourmand so much! It is deliciously fruity. The warmer it is, the more coffee chocolate I get from this scent. I am not sure how this one does in winter, but I have been seduced in buying a full bottle for summertime!

I have avoided gourmands until I tried this house. I then blind bought two HdP on the reviews and am so pleased. I did not know what to expect (I was so hoping nothing like Angel, nothing like any of those fruitchoulis that are so popular now) This is not as gourmand as I thought it would be, but am not disappointed as many I have tried have fallen short in a not so good way (too sweet, too short-lived, too powerful, etc)...this is just perfect. The balance of the peach, the patch and the chocolate is excellent. It lasts a fair while on me too, being quite strong, but it is never overpowering like say La Vie Est Belle and Angel can be. I usually avoid musk too, but this is what keeps it all in balance with the spice and florals. This is also a people pleaser too!

The cocoa dominates this scent on my skin. It's a dry, refined cocoa that comes close to the smell of tobacco leaves, rounded out by something creamy that reminds me of a high-end lotion. I can also detect a little rose. This vaguely reminds me of 100% Love, but better blended, less potent, and less in-your-face.

I get faint peachy, patchy, dusting of chocolate and a light pink faintly spicy rose for about 20 min and then it's white musk. Clean laundry musk. I had to press my nose into my skin to smell it. It is not evocative of the late 60's or any sort of revolution. Unless they were being ironic. Actually, the drydown is reminiscent of L'Artisan Traversee du Bosphore (which the reviewer below mentioned) but cleaner and not as interesting. I was hopeful that I would like this one. The line's concept is fun, if not a bit gimmicky, but am finding I'm not getting lost in fantasy of person or time with any of the scents that I have tried so far. I am getting lots of white musk, though.

First time testing it I definitely smell a gourmand rose, like rose flavored candies, the sweetness is tamed by the cardamon. I can't isolate the peach nor the chocolate probably because they blend in perfectly. For the moment I love it, I don't enjoy sweet but this one I can't stop sniffing. Actually it is what I expected Traversee du Boshpore by L'Artisan to be.
The silage is moderate but I spray from a decant.

Edit: I spayed on fabric and the peach note is very dominant, then the rose starts to emerge and takes the main stage.

1969 is the perfect gourmand. Peach, chocolate and some coffee at the opening, sweet and sensuous. The dry down is rose, spices and some patchouli. Beautiful composition by Histoires de Parfums. The girls at the dry cleaners couldn't stop smelling me, LOL!!

I like 1969 quite enough. I can wear it very easily, especially in winter, but I can understand how it can become tiring day after day.
It's a cozy scent, yet totally different from what you smell around. It's quite strong also compared to other ones in the same line.
I like the weird mix of notes which sound apparently unusual or not likely to stay together, but the result is quite harmonious and not clashing.
There is a zest from fruit, quiet flowers and a good blend of chocolate/coffee. It's a non-sugary gourmand, thanksgod. The cardamom is delicious and gently adds spice.
The drydown after several hours is more about musky notes.
I would say it is more on a feminine side, but quite unisex anyway, according to usual standards.

"1969" was the first niche I'd ever owned. Now, a year since I bought it, I have gone from unbridled love to absolute hatred :(

Yes it can happen. Over the weeks and months of wearing a perfume you start to learn more about the notes and soon you begin to hone in on things you weren't noticing before.

In my initial seduction I was swept away by a giddy, flirtatious peach, sweet chocolate and sparkling spice. Even then I admitted that it was quite feminine, but it had such a boozy hedonistic vibe I felt assured I could pull it off.

However, now I find that gourmand peach note has altogether disappeared, and I am instead repulsed by a sickening dish-soap rose and patchouli, with an acute bitterness from the coffee. Even in tiny amounts the piercing, soapy sweetness just makes me gag.

What a turn-around. A shame really since it was quite unique. At least now I have learned that strong patchouli is definitely something for me to avoid.

i really wonder the "sexy" word floats out in the reviews harshly for the fragrance! honestly i really wonder why!
this perfume was the first that i've tested from this brand within the same day.
not intended to put it down but to me it was similar to water!!! nothing interesting in it that captures my senses or even my attention! i thought from the reviews & the notes that it will be battling with other favorite fragrances that i personally like but it turned out that it is just another perfume that im surprised it is niche! if the label and the bottle was changed to those commercial well known brands i wouldn't be surprised at all. but after all i'll try it again cause maybe the sample wasn't good.

edit (8th nov 2014) i just realized that i've been given a sample of this fragrance from a seller in Barcelona from shop called Les Topettes, actually he gave it to my brother so my bro gave it to me. i remember my brother saying that the seller who gave him this sample (the seller) loves it very much.
now this is completely different than the one i sniffed back in the shop i've been too. but still it's too cloying, too sweet for my senses. it's like a gum, red sugary syrup, and splash drink! even the flowers in here are too sweetish. is this really the fragrance that Angelina Julie uses for the Oscars! too much red pink sweets. not for me.

1969 is delectably, deliciously groovy. I immediately savored notes of sweet rose, creamy chocolate, and ripe peach. An unusual and captivating combo. I soon could smell earthy patchouli and aromatic cardamom. It seems like there is vanilla here too. I can distinctly smell each and every note, and yet they blend together so perfectly. This is such a well-balanced, very enjoyable perfume. Nothing jarring here. Whoever created this is a genius.

Like another reviewer, I was also reminded of Ford's Noir de Noir, which is stunning. I find 1969 far more complex, yet also more casual and easy to wear.

A member of this site recommended this when I asked for suggestions for a sophisticated perfume with a playful quality. This certainly fits the bill. The scent as a whole is elegant, but it is also fun. Hedonistic is right, as I get a kick out of knowing how I am sinfully indulging while I am at work. It's like a guilty pleasure. I purchased a full bottle right away, I simply could not stop sniffing myself. Sillage and longevity are wonderful. 1969 is worthy of all of these glowing reviews.

I wanted to like this one and I can understand why many people do. However, I find it to be too restrained. It can go in a few different directions but just seems to stay in the center, so to speak. If you want something that is on the opposite end of the spectrum, there is A*Men. If you take price into consideration, I'd choose Yacht Man Chocolate in less than a second over this one, though this one has a fruity quality whereas YMC is more of a spice scent. As others have said, there seem to be a lot of notes, but none of them seem interested in taking command. Perhaps if I sprayed more it would lead to a note or two becoming dominant, but I don't think this is my kind of scent because of the blending. If you want crisper notes with a somewhat similar composition, there is Charles Jourdan The Parfum.

I am crazy on perfumes. I have many of them and most i like are smells not easily recognized by others. Caron perfumes are my favorite. I have to choose a present for myself so i tried a lot of smells in a small shop with a limited choice. When i smell 1969 i immediately fell in love with it, but for its unique smell. Actually it is a bit to sweet for my tasted cause i am more a wood type than fruity one, but as i told this perfume makes you love it for its Uniqueness. I recommend for rare smell lovers. It's worthy to be in your collection.

On a day trip to L.A. I stopped in Scent Bar to get an EXPERT consult. This shop is ONLY fragrances, organized by scent type, with a bar where you can sit and have a free consultation.
I mentioned my love for rose, musk, and patchouli. She showed me about 6 others, but 1969 WOWED me! On me, it's very chocolatey, not too sweet. The patchouli adds a sexy, smokey note. The rose keeps it feminine. Super sexy and smells nicer as it dries down hour after hour... A great date or weekend fragrance.

Oh my goodness. This. Mesmerising. Delectable.

I first read about it online, and decided that being the perfume lover I am, and finding niche perfumes some of the most unusual and gorgeous I've come across, I knew I had to try this.. and wow.

I was expecting a certain presence, and tone and yumminess, but what I smelled, was even better. It's always lovely when something exceeds expectation, and when it comes to fragrance, I love when something makes me close my eyes, my head spin, and my heart begin to race. That is *this* fragrance.

Prior to trying it, what I had in mind was something golden, and sunset-lit. Something that smelled both luxurious, and romantic. Revolte possesses and exudes these qualities, but it's so much more. There are dozens and dozens of poetic fragrances out in the world but this is right out of the water. It's sweet, but deliciously dark. It is made for silk sheets, Egyptian bath robes, chilled white wine, foreign cities at twilight...The rose isn't as full on as the one I find in Juliette has a Gun's "Lady Vengeance" but these two *could* be sisters. However, I lean towards the gourmand, naughty, morish nature of this one, with the coffee and chocolate.

I really believe that this fragrance is probably one of the most unique and beautiful ever crafted. Chanel No 5 has the reputation that it does for a reason, on behalf of its house, but 1969 is everything a perfumer could hope to achieve for their brand, and for really, the whole niche market. It is eloquent and sensual on the skin. There is a note to it that reminds me of the red cordial in a sodastream I had as a child... which adds to this elegant, circus of scent.

I love that it is unisex, as I imagine it comes alive differently on a man's. On me, I do find much of the rose, and chocolate, which is haunting in a wonderful way. This a scent that is memorable and will provoke the imagination.


This, for me, is a definitive scent. Of sexuality, rebellion, beauty, freedom, individuality. It could be worn with anything, and make you feel like a goddess.
Wear with caution - you'll smell like a heavenly dessert.

The opening is a rush of scent impressions - rich red rose, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, peach, and I don't know what else. It settles down into the most beautifully nuanced rose and vanilla. This is the first perfume that I've been able to sense so many individual notes that are so distinct yet harmonious.

1969 Parfum de Revolte is - to me at least - an Oriental spicy fruitchouli. With notes like peach, chocolate, rose, cardamom, coffee, clove and patchouli, this 'fume is a see-saw of intricacy. It has me in such a delightful frustration; I know I love this perfume, I just can't peg it nor can I believe when I read that other people don't understand why it's beautiful.

1969 Parfum de Revolte is saccharine peach, drizzled in rosewater upon application. Spicy cardamom is evident and very pleasant. A few hours in, creamy chocolate and the bitterness of clove and coffee make themselves known. The patchouli is gritty to the point of being dirty, and marries well with the initial sweet/spicy.

I f*cking love this perfume.

What a spectacular and odd perfume!! I don't know, why it is called parfum de revolte 1969, if the creator of it meant the political revolt in Europa in 1969, or the sexual revolt in the Hippies time or the revolt in a perfumery. Probably for the last reason, as it was released in 2001, when Hippies and big politic theme were gone for a while. For sure - this is really a revolting fume, which only one right environment seems to be carnival, Fasching, evening parties or a big performance. I can actually hardly imagine a person, which would suits to this peach fruity marvel, probably the one sort of people are the beautiful ladyboys from Thailand or recently Conchita Wurst from Austria by her/his European Song Contest. So, how it smells? Well, how I told on the beginning. SPECTACULAR. The opening are the richest peaches I ever smelled in a perfume with lots of fruits. After two hour comes honey into it, but you still can smell the beautiful peaches. I tested it only on the strip as I did not dare to spray it on me. Now I am sniffing every time, when driving a car, to the blotter and smell rich peaches with honey, a bit chocolate and very nice freshness. If I would not possess about 100 bottles of perfume, I would buy this one, just for fun, because it is so different. It plays in the same league than Carolina Herrera Carolina Herrera and Lubin Idole EdP, but stronger and more odd. I love it, even if I could never put it on, because being not so dramatical person, like the perfume is. Perfect for evening. Centuries longevity on the blotter and good silage. Everybody should test this as evidence of beautiful oddness.

For my person - I´ll never forget this peach, fruity, honey liked chocolate sweet bomb.

1969 reminds me hugely of coSTUME national Homme. The absurdly sweet opening which becomes intensely sugary which I love could put many off. The peach note is not playing around or girly it's concentrated, atomic fruit which is almost caramelized with a tiny touch of sweet rose. Then as it dries down the hints of chocolate and very delicate patchouli are evident driven by a gentle musk base.
I for one think it's like a better version of coSTUME national even though 1969 doesn't quite have the same sharpness of cinnamon or clove although somehow the same effect is created. Also CN goes a bit sour after all that sweetness as an attempt to balance it. Sometimes I think if you go that far you should just stick to it and go 'all out sweet' and that's what this does.
Longevity is average and it projects at first then dies down very quick.
My sweet tooth and love of fruitiness makes me adore this.

Love this!
Everyone talks about peach: sure it's there and it adds a that sticky sweet fruitiness. It's like two fragrances were mixed together: one feminine sweet peachy floral; the other is spicy patchouli and cocoa. I get this boozy cognac vibe, too, especially in the beginning. And then this pleasant muskiness in the end.
I've always been keen on these "gourmand but not quite" type perfumes. And it's definitely unisex; although, I could envision some men might find it too sweet for themselves.

1969 is a fruity chpre to my nose. It opens up with a rich aura of peaches and roses, dipped in coconut milk, wrapped in heavy musk. The drydown is quite musky. I also smell some patchouli. It is a must-have for someone who is looking for complicate, less conventional fruity scents.

Histoires de Parfums 1969 is captivating and inspiring! Sweet effervescent peach top notes that melt into a delicious coco with lush pink roses. In the dry down you can smell the patchouli and cardamom as chocolate and rose still linger sweetly. I am head over heels in love with this fragrance! I think it’s beautiful, sexy, and alluring!

This is a very delicious and sexy scent!
The opening is a great combination of peach, chocolate, rose and one thing that is not in note list .... vanilla!
The vanilla smell is creamy and so yummy. now mix that with peach, chocolate and rose .... mmmmmm!
I'm not a fan of rose but it's very well done and well balanced in this fragrance.
This combination and smell remind me of "Tom Ford Noir de Noir" in many ways but I think this one is better!
Less floral and rosy than "NdN" but as a replacement this one has fruity note.
As time goes by you have still the top notes with a little less sweetness, and now patchouli and some spices kick in and give the scent a really nice punch in the face!
The scent is less feminine and almost toward the unisex in the mid.
Another great and quality fragrance from this amazing brand.
Both projection and longevity is really good.

یه عطر خیلی خوشمزه از این برند بسیار عالی
رایحه ابتدایی این عطر با بویی ترکیب از رایحه های هلو، شکلات، رز و وانیل شروع میشه
رایحه وانیل تو این عطر ذکر نشده اما بوش به وضوح حس میشه و طعمی خامه ای مانند و شیرینی ملایم و دلچسبی داره
حالا این بوی شیرین ملایمُ با رایحه شکلات و هلو و رز قاطی کنین .... به به عجب معجون خوشمزه ای
شخصا با اینکه از بوی رز اصلا خوشم نمیاد ولی رایحه رز تو این بسیار ملایم و دلنشینه و در کنار رایحه های دیگه حس بهشت زهرایی به آدم نمیده
در ادامه بوی عطر تغییری به اون صورت نمیکنه فقط شیرینی اش کمی ملایمتر میشه و حالا کمی بوی ادویه جات و کمی هم بوی تند و تیز نعنای هندی بهش اضافه میشه
رایحه ابتدایی خیلی خوشبو و جذابه ولی حس کاملا زنانه ای داره ولی با اضافه شدن ادویه جات و نعنای هندی عطر میشه گفت حالا حس عطرهای یونیسکسُ داره
این عطر بوش منو تا حد زیادی یاد تام فورد نوار د نوار میندازه ولی بوی رز اش خیلی کمتره و در مجموع بوی به مراتب بهتری داره
به نظر من صد در صد ارجهیت داره برای خرید اگر میخواین برین نوار د نوار بخرین
پخش و ماندگاریش هر دو بسیار خوبه
کار خوبیه. کلی لذت بردم از بوش

This is an unusual scent. It starts out pretty sweet, with some medicinal notes, and overtime becomes a delicious powdery-minty-chocolaty veil. Incredible. Very contemporary despite the reference to 1969.

Does anyone remember how the old vinyl Halloween costumes of the 70s and 80s used to smell? that is what I smell here. I think it's because of the weird rose note....it smells plastic and synthetic. I'm not getting " gourmand" from this at all. I probably would've had a whole different take if there was no rose in this. I'll try it again tomorrow and see if my opinion changes, but as of now...thumbs down.

There is the slightest hint of a clean musk throughout the linear 1969. As it fades, I'm reminded of Angel. Only slightly, but since no other perfume I've tried has reminded me so much of Angel, I thought it was worth voting for in the "this perfume reminds me of..." section. (Update: Someone else voted against it so it doesn't show). 1969 is not as gloppy as Angel, though. I think it's quite refined, actually, for what it is (an on-trend fruitchouli).

For some reason, it feels modern, no retro vibe, so I don't understand the name. I'm not going to wear my sample often or in great company.

Chirobi says she thinks 1969 would suit a carefree (hippie?) man from San Fran. I can see that! It would be hot on a man like that.

Update: Guys, I've been using my sample of 1969 while wearing Angel perfumed body cream, body oil, and hand cream. They honestly compliment each other - I prefer them together over each alone!

This is the classiest, the softest and the yummiest gourmand on earth, at least to my nose. It is sweet, but sophisticated, and certainly unisex.

The peach, coffee and chocolate here are blended together into something heavenly, desirable and sexy (I say "sexy" although I almost never use this word to describe a perfume... people may be sexy, not perfumes, but this one really is, it is extremely attractive on the sensual level).

I also get a lot of rose from this composition, and I really enjoy it.

The drydown is all musk and patchouli, non-dirty kind of.

This perfume is delicious, a 10/10 for me. I highly recommend it to all gourmand and oriental lovers, especially if you find the majority of perfume in this genre a bit too straightforward and/or lacking in character. This one is truly special, there's nothing similar to 1969.

This is what I was hoping Rose Rebelle would be. Where RR was brash and uppity, this is smooth and elegant. It opens as a fresh posy of roses and white florals decorating a peach platter, the delicate sweetness enhanced beautifully with subtle spicy notes. It subsequently dries down to a dark warm chocolate and patch, nothing candy coated here. Sillage is moderate and same for its longevity but I am pleased enough with both. It may not suit its name, somehow I expected something with more brass balls, more akin to Rose Rebelle, but I am not disappointed with the scent. I am slightly surprised to know that this is worn by Angelina Jolie, somehow I expected her to choose a more "in your face" scent. After smelling this and knowing that new bit of information, I see her in a different light, a more fragile and vulnerable one in contrast to the kickass roles that she normally plays. Fragile and vulnerable-this scent.

This strongly reminds me of Rhianna Rebelle. Mildly sweet cacao, slightly spicy, a little warm - all in all it's a fairly subdued kinda dull fragrance.

Nothing to write home about IMO. I have a little mini of Rebelle and it's okay, I wouldn't purchase that either and they really are very very similar.

If you're looking for an outstanding spicy chocolate scent try L'Antichambre Chocolate Ambre it's far stronger, spicier, sweeter and more memorable.

I had big hopes for this perfume, unfortunately it was nothing magical on me. It smelled so incredibly generic I could only describe it as smelling.... perfumey.

If you like very generic perfume smells that are light and inoffensive this would work out for you, but I think you can get the same effect for a third of the cost. It reminded me a lot of the perfumes they carry at Anthropologie. In fact when I put it on I immediately imagined a mid-thirties woman working at their headquarters, but not the fun sassy eclectic one who heads up the art department... the sad frumpy one who slinks from corner to corner of the office trying her best to be pleasant and unnoticed. I told my boyfriend it was the smell of cats and desperation, not literally but figuratively... he said that was a bit harsh, that it smelled "pleasant" I said "pleasant... exactly"

Parfumes should have more personality than this.

Wow, this one didn't really do anything special at all on my skin. Big disappointment, as all the notes sounded perfect.

It went on wet smelling faintly of non-sweet chocolate, then I smelled a hint of driftwood, and during the drydown I smelled something that resembled the scent of hot chocolate from ten feet away, then poof!...it was gone. Really had to put nose-to-wrist for this one too.

I am quite intrigued by this fragrance, especially with a composition as complex as this one. In my mind I've created a new fragrance genre, the oriental gourmand, and if this classification were to ever exist on Fragrantica, 1969 Parfum de Revolte would be the first in its class.

1969 Parfum de Revolte is an incredibly delicious and sensual blend. Who would have believed that fuzzy peach and rich, syrupy chocolate could go so well together? Be warned, this fragrance can become addictive over time. I'm not surprised that this fragrance is worn by Angelina Jolie, of all people.

The opening is quite strong, almost potent on the skin. Despite its somewhat rude introduction, 1969 Parfum de Revolte does settle, opting for a mish-mash of sweet chocolate, earthy patchouli, juicy peach and spicy rose.

This description might sound a little strange, but if I were to discover a home-made chocolate stall in a spice bazaar, I think the air would smell very much like 1969 Parfum de Revolte. To be honest, I don't think this fragrance is the perfect homage to the 'Free Love' era, it's more like something I'd wear while walking the cobblestone streets of Paris, or while being lost in Istanbul.

The drydown is slightly musky, however the smooth, chocolatey feel is there from beginning to end. Good news for those that love the scent of chocolate. I can't believe that I'm only testing this fragrance now. Gourmands will be seen in a slightly different light from now on.

The lasting power and sillage are superb, as you would expect from an expensive brand. However, despite my rave review of 1969 Parfum de Revolte, I would still greatly advise that you test it first, as it may not be for everyone. I'll also add that I found it quite unisex.

I was born in 1964 and the year 1969 seems like arcadia to me, a time I was too young to understand and appreciate. As a decade, as a phenomenon, the 1960s has come to represent many things, from naiveté to revolution, but I assume in this case 1969 refers to the expansiveness, freedom-seeking and questioning of authority that flowed forth after the 1967 Summer of Love.  You know, the hippy thing. ("Parfume de Révolte") To my nose, though, 1969 seems far more contemporary. It takes the fruity floral to school, demonstrating that even a genre as threadbare as the contemporary fruity floral can be beautiful and complex in the right hands.  Where the hoard of trashy fruitchoulis are glaring, as if highlighted by mercury vapor street lights, 1969 is professionally lit and ready for the camera. Hoard? What’s the collective noun for fruitchoulis? A host? A murder? A gaggle? A cast? Let’s appropriate from the collective noun for the no-longer-used maidens. A rage of fruitchoulis.

1969 has a combination of softness, urgency and definition that gives a depth of tone that I would expect in a classic chypre but am startled by in a fruitchouli.  It balances intensity and austerity as a chypre would (think YSL’s Y) but still has a bit of that puppy energy of a fruitchouli. Quite sexy, really.

This is *sparkling* fizzy and ..yummy, a Gourmand bordering on Chypre, odd and good!. It's notably chocolate, rosey, spicy, with peachy jammy fruit, but has many nuanced layers. I just can't stop sniffing my arm! it's not heavily spicey at all, which I like, it's just the right amount. Its warm & snuggly, though it sparkles in the heat too.. This is what I expect from a niche house, a unique creation, it delivers and more. A must try.

I was told today at fragrance store that this perfume was Angelina Jolie's favourite and she's using it every time she appears at Hollywood red carpet. They even identify It like her own scent. Anyway, it smells very interesting, I could even say more - this one totally fits her. Smells on rich white flowers, jasmine maybe and bit of clove. It doesn't smell on coffee or chocolate or even peach. Tender flowers only, attractive scent... very very

I was just eating some white chocolate with hazelnuts when I instinctively brought my wrist to my nose. The smooth white chocolate melting over my tongue and the aroma released as I was crunching on the roasted hazelnuts became enveloped with 1969, and it created such a divine gust-olfactory union. In fact, I think this scent would be extremely complimentary to other dairy-based desserts. Imagine a 1969-infused panna cotta or creme brule. Mmmmmm, indeed! However, you needn't worry about smelling like a piece of cake. It's got enough patchouli, florals, and something else to steer it away from veering completely into food territory. I didn't even make the food connection when I initially picked it out amongst the other perfume years. I was too engrossed with judging the perfume by its cover.

Even though I was born after 1969, that period has always fascinated me, and I feel connected to somehow even across the chasm of space-time. I lived 10 years the Bay Area and the scent is very evocative of the how Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley and Haight St. in SF smelled like back then, with all the head shops, coffee shops, used book stores, used clothing stores, cheap bakery, weed and yerba mate (minus the occasional waft of urine, thankfully).

I sampled it a few days ago in Beijing, and had to go back to get it. Fortunately, they carried the 14ml bottle, because the 60ml costs nearly $200USD here. If I run through my small bottle quickly, I might consider dropping some cash on a 120ml because the scent is very unique and lovely, and lasts all day on me.

I think 1969 would also suit a man very well--but not a man in a suit--maybe an ex-hippy intellectual with unkempt hair and a 5 o'clock shadow who's lived in South America.

The name refers to women's emancipation that occurred during that decade.

The opening of the fruity note with peach roses creates a very pleasant feeling. with about 15 minutes start to feel traces of chocolate and musk. Nothing felt patchouli here. Although some consider the 1969 unisex, I found it very feminine, sweet and subtle. It is easy for a blind to those who like sweet perfumes. I liked it, but it would find the typical smell that nice feeling in a woman.

Ohhh yum. This is such an inviting delicious scent. From this I get peach and candied rose mixed with some light clean musk with hints of chocolate and coffee. It's just so fun, how could anyone hate this? The patchouli gives it depth so it's not an overly young scent, this would best be suited for someone mature but young and wild at heart. Would be great on a summer day for someone who wants something a little edgy, it's a very vibrant and outgoing scent.

Lol..... Peach and rose with chocolate all mixed together is what I am getting on first application. It smells weird and unatural and a bit sickly. It gets a bit
floral but the peach is still there. After a while it starts to smell like the vinyl which a lilo is made from which you use on the sea while on vacation.

I'm thinking that this fragrance may be better suited for women than a manly man.lol...... The peach note is getting stronger and this fragrance is a fruity
gourmand that is not to my taste. I'm going to have to scrub this off my skin.lol

To sum up a fruity peachy chocolate floral gourmand which may be better suited for women than a man. Longevity is unknown as I scrubbed this one early.

I got a vial of this along with some other samples from Histoires du Parfums. I have really enjoyed all their scents, but I have to say that my favorite is 1969. The opening is irresistible - It nearly made me giddy with delight as a rubbed a bit on my wrists and neck. Roses! Very bright freshly cut roses emerge followed by sharp carnations. Considering the fact that this scent was inspired by political revolt, I immediately thought of the image of a flower in the barrel of a gun. A powerful image and powerful scent.

The scent mellows to something spicier and here I can feel the cardamon and coriander rising from the skin. It becomes warmer and more full-blooded. The dry down is lighter; the musk and patchouli are very well blended because they merge into a new third scent that is something like an oriental powder that has been kept in the woods.

I'm really surprised by this very unusual scent - it really feels new, fresh, bright and alive. For someone who usually loves nostalgic scents, this is a welcome change to my senses and I know I'll want to get a full bottle.

* Also meant to add: Fragrantica mistakenly lists this as a woman's perfume; it is actually a unisex scent (as per Histoires de Parfums.)

1969 introduces itself with one of the best perfume's names so far: Parfum De Rivolte. 1969 was the year of a generational revolution leading to the female sexual emancipation. Wether this name appeals to you or not, this fragrance has a remarkable erotic vibe made of a well balanced opulence and some luxurious sweetness.

It opens with a spectacular effect ("someone" says is one of the best opening in modern perfumery) with creamy and fruity rose that's simply magnific. During its evolution rose blends together with vanilla and spices turning a bit more conventional and chemical yet incredibly refined and never affected. Overall 1969 is not my type of fragrance, nothing I would really like to wear but I'd definitely appreciate on someone seating next to me.

Good Stuff!

Histoires de Parfums 1969 offers a somewhat confusing cacophony of dried fruit, gourmand and floriental notes. Black coffee, cardamom and cocoa impart a decided darkness to the mix, but I don't find this composition as coherent as some of my favorite cardamom-patchouli perfumes (CHINATOWN and LEXINGTON AVE, to name a couple). Coffee and cardamom are happily paired; coffee and cocoa are happily paired. I'm not sure, however, whether all three belong together in the same bottle—at least based on this result. I also find the fruits somewhat gunky in the drydown, rather like the residue at the bottom of an almost-empty jar of peach jam. I do not want to overgeneralize here, but suffice it to say that this woman has no business smelling like the residue at the bottom of an almost empty jam jar. All in all, 1969 is one of my least favorite of the offerings of this house. Désolée.

I had to get this because 1969 was my year! The end of high school and the beginning of life. Living and experiencing the summer of love and peace in my native San Francisco. Winterland and Fillmore concerts with the the Grateful Dead, Doors, Hendrix and others. The free concert at Altamont, Oh the Stones! Bell bottoms, love beads and driving my VW bug with patchouli scented love beads hanging from the mirror. Hanging out at coffee houses in Berkeley. Oops! Enough of my loose usage of poetic license. Forgot
I had to review a perfume here! Yes, 1969 Parfum de Revolte .

The opening is fruit filled with a very sweet and peachy overtone that almost seems to last throughout the wear. The heart notes erupt with a heavy blast of cardamon accompanied with clove-y green girofle The rose, although its there, its almost silent in its presence as the aroma of spices is abundant. As we get to the base, enter the suggestion of patchouli and I have to say a very refined, surprisingly mellow patchouli scent. What really takes over is the white musk and the chocolate with more sweetness. This long wearing oriental gourmand fragrance is a unique, artsy creation that is, despite its sweetness, suitable for both men and women.

Does it really represent the year 1969? With the hint of patchouli and the aroma of chocolate, a la Alice B. Toklas, Oh Yeah, it's a reminder of "the" year for sure. It's raw and minus the cannabis, censored! This is a perfect scent for baby boomers who want to revisit the experience or for those who want to feel the vibes of a period that once was.

Yum. The opening citrus perks it up and gives the fragrance a unisex appeal but I don't know if that lasts since the fragrance turns more feminine in the drydown. The cardamon is very retiring. The drydown does bring roses and sweetness but I don't find this a girly girly overly sweet fragrance - at least not on me. I think it's a softer more discreet fragrance than would be expected if pre-judging by the notes as listed on Fragantica. But on the Histoires website, it codes the fragrance as an Oriental Gourmand & lists coffee, chocolate and white flower as additional notes. I wish staying power was better because it's an expensive fragrance.

As Rebella said, it is too fruity and sweet in the opening, but at least the patchouli isn't overwhelming.

I get something that makes me think of dates, grapes and other syrupy fruits, so it reminds me of the opening notes in Calvin Klein Secret Obsession, but a lot more wearable and not so strong.

I'm not girl of fruity-sweet fragances so I wish it was more woody-green.

I like it, but it makes me a little confused. On me it´s a little to sweet in the wrong way, I wish that it would have been less sweet. Normally I like sweet fragrances but in this the sweetness missmatch. The fruityness in the opening feels a little to feminin on a man, but the heart and base are really soft, lingering and with pretty, not strong patchouli. It´s the part I like best and find most suitable for men.

After trying this on my husband he asked, are you sure it´s for men?

Recommend it if you´re looking for a sweet, kind of fruity patchouli. That is quite unusual.

1969 was a momentous year: Abbey Road, Woodstock, Nixon, the moon landing- just to name a few highlights. With such events as inspirations for a scent, I was intrigued before I even opened the bottle. Though this is not the revolutionary scent one might expect when bottling such a defining year, I will say I was pleasantly surprised. This steers clear of the unwashed hippie in patchouli cliché. It begins with ripe peach and cardamom; it’s an edible opening that is more summer picnic than pastry shop. A bright rose begins to appear and mingle with the sweetness creating an aroma reminiscent of candied rose petals. Finally, clean musk (the white musk in the official notes) and patchouli immerge to blend into the lingering sweetness. The patchouli never quite reaches the heavy, musty quality so easily associated with this time period, which is fine by me. Although listed as a shared fragrance, I imagine the gourmand qualities would appeal to women a bit more than to men. Having said that, I think this would be delicious on the right man.
