Vidi Fragrance Reviews


Veni Vidi and Vici by Histoires de Parfums are from their
Edition Rare series which is quite expensive and only comes
in one size - 60 Ml.
There are less than 10 reviews here on fragrantica which are mostly unfavorable and Vidi has a meta score of about 3.15 out of 5 which is quite low.

I want to represent a completely different point of view - I own all 3 of the aforementioned fragrances, Veni Vidi and Vici in full bottle form and can't get enough of them.
For me all 3 are among the most underhyped fragrances around.

Vidi itself features one of my favorite notes: Immortelle and a note I couldn't care less about - Cucumber which fits Vidi perfctly.
I recommend trying a small decant of Vidi for yourself and deciding if you are Team Edward or Team Jacob on this one.
For me personally Veni Vidi and Vici are huge favorites.
If you are worried about the full bottle price - I totally get that but that's no reason to avoid sampling these as a small sample can last for a long long time.
HDP offers most of their fragrances as samples but I haven't seen Veni Vidi and Vici offered in that capacity just yet.

Vidi opens with an explosion of Iso E Super, ambroxan and most probably another couple of prominent aromachemicals (cashmeran, something airy-minty, something rubber on the base, and a slight iodine-salty note). Pretty much it, a bunch of ingredients used "naked and raw" as they are. Some salty, minty, woody and ambery nuance float around, all completely artificial, as pleasant as any supermarket scent can be (mostly because of being made with the same ingredients, and the same zero degree of elaboration). It tastes of cheap designer. Not stinky but to me, completely useless.



Although I love heavy scents, i love this scent.
I think this is a wonderfully carefree summer scent!
Maybe it is synthetic but thank god fortunilaty it is not laden with Yasmin like a lot of summer scents.
It is fresh free, 1 hour later it smells a bit like cleaningsoap but that is lukely a short time


Unfortunately, Histoires de Parfums Vidi opens with aquatic/ozonic notes and big blaring iso-E-super and then dries down to ambroxan. Basically everything which I would love in the composition--the saffron, the cardamom, the rose...--is completely clobbered by aromachemicals. Some people appear to find similarities between Vidi and Tocca Brigitte. I do not.

The problem of aromachemical overkill reminds me of a similar problem with artificially flavored tea (which I avoid): the synthetic parts tend to be disproportionately potent and have impressive tenacity, much better than that of the natural components. The end result is unbalanced and inharmonious. Désolée.

I came, I sniffed, I scrubbed.


This is in the same family with Kenneth Cole Reaction, Paris Hilton for Men, Ralph Lauren Polo Blue. It even smells cheap like those scents. Heavy laundry musk and alcohol. My first scrubber from this house. I still love HdP tho!


I was so disappointed by this fragrance! There was way too much ambroxan and Iso E Super, creating the illusion of an amber-musky-sweet base. But it smells so fake, and the abstract base drowned out all of those other gorgeous notes to where I couldn't enjoy the perfume much. It bothers me how frequently niche perfumers depend on those compounds to create the base upon which all the other notes are built because when too much is used it's so painfully obvious. Vidi smelled like a plastic cucumber with a heavy hand of saffron. Cardamom is truly just an opening note and fades rather quickly. It's an interesting concept--the coolness of cucumber contrasting with warm spices. I would have loved this if it wasn't for the ambroxan/Iso base.


Light, airy, spicy and very refreshing. Definitely unisex. Simply amazing good feel optimistic scent. Will review properly later after I have worn it several times.


I have worn my sample a few times now and have somewhat gone of it. I think it is the combination of cucumber, saffron and cardammon which makes it an interesting scent but at the same time makes me feel a bit queasy. The longevity or projection aren't great and it is a very expensive scent.
Whilst originally I thought I would want to buy a full bottle, now I am pretty certain I shan't bother.
