Product Description:

'A Moveable Feast' inspired Gerald Ghislain's creation of 1899. In his memoir, Hemingway recounts his bohemian life in Paris, during the Roaring Twenties. 1899 conveys the exuberant mood and unbridled creativity of the time. A cocktail of bergamot and juniper simulate an aperitif imbibed during lively discussions at renowned Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the Left Bank's renowned cafe where Hemingway met with fellow literary expatriates of his 'Lost Generation.'

Orange blossom denotes the soft warmth of the golden, lit interior of the cafe. Iris’ cool, dusty textures replicates the grey-blue, icy majesty of Paris outside of this cafe. Cinnamon invigorates, mimicking the tingle of satisfaction moving through these cafe denizens, as they eat and drink their way to warmth, while vanilla simulates the sweet, contemplative ritual of a cigarette at the end of the meal. A hardy vetiver mimics an herbal digestif that accompany the post-dinner smoke.

As the sky outside darkens, and the ex-patriots settle in for another round of discussion and a brief course of awakening coffee, the interior of this cafe glows into a deeper shade of gold, amber's resinous, rich tones the perfect translation of the interior colors of this cultural bastion late at night. Like a stroll through the Paris where Ernest became Hemingway, this woody, oriental scent is undeniably masculine, but sweet, soft and refreshingly modern.

Top Notes: Italian Bergamot, Juniper, Black Pepper

History in the making Ive never experienced this fragrance before so I decided to go for a sample of it since I heard positive reviews about it When it arrived nicely packaged and on time which is notorious of Smallflower I eagerly gave it a go and was surprised how great it smelled Very divine and pleasant scent Would recommend this for someone who wants an affordable niche scent that wont break the bank
