Recently, we learned about fragrance line Histoires de Parfums which French chef and restaurant owner Gérald Ghislain launched some years back. This beautifully packaged, collection of fragrances amazed us with its concept: to build perfumes inspired by figures in history, like Jules Verne and Mata Hari. Aside from the eight "main characters" there are also three "soliloquies" and two "cult books". The newest fragrance, 1969, falls in that category. Meant to embody the mythical, culturally voluptuous year that was 1969, the new perfume contains a mixture of rose, chocolate, spices, and of course, patchouli. Click on the title link to learn more.
