Histoires de Parfums 1740 Marquis de Sade is the lastest addition to my collection. As soon as I sprayed it on my skin I got a strong bergamot note with some green notes. 5 min after that initial blast, the body of the scent starts to show with a leather accord, dominated with heavy herbal notes, some spices and a powder nuance. With this scent I imagine Dorian Grey in his late 40's, dressed with a fancy tuxedo and a velvet overcoat, walking around his garden, at the end of the day, enjoying the gifts of Nature, as he's waiting for the arrival of his guests for the big dinner he arranged. It's a very mature and unique scent. Maybe a bit too mature for me. But, nevertheless, I really like what this scent represents and it's quality is undeniable. It's that kind of fragrance which I'll learn to love through time.
