1804 is inspired by Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin, born in Paris on July 1, 1804. She would later become the baroness of Dudevant. But if you know her at all, you probably know her as George Sand, the pen name she used as one of France's celebrated novelists. She smoked tobacco in public, wore men's clothing, and had well-publicized affairs, including one with composer Frédéric Chopin. In 1804, her inspiration is captured in a surprising composition that puts juicy pineapple front and center, surrounded by tropical tiare flowers in bloom. The base is a warm, spicy mix of clove, nutmeg, and vanilla, creating a perfume as unique as its avant-garde inspiration.
Notes include Tahitian gardenia, Corsican peach, Hawaiian pineapple, clove, nutmeg, Indian jasmine, lily of the valley, rose, sandalwood, patchouli, benzoin, vanilla, and white musk.
Histoires de Parfums, founded by Gérald Ghislain, is a French perfume house dedicated to creating an olfactive library that tells the stories of "famous characters, raw materials, and mythical years." Ghislain founded Histoires de Parfums in 2000 after completing his training at ISIPCA.
1804 was inspired by the 19th-century female French writer George Sand.
