I’d stay away from this crap. Ok honestly this shit smells like motor oil, engine grease it’s so strong it’s disgusting. So this is named after the year the house was founded 1747 so is this how noblemen smelled like in that era? Like shit and engine grease!? No thanks I’ll keep to my modern perfumes.

I wonder if Galimard has just mislabelled a vial of something else here–I don’t get any references to barbershop. No stand-out Grasse lavander, no distinct mossiness. What I get, surprisingly from 1747 based on reviews here and elsewhere, is a mid-to-late-90s aquatic straddling the schools of CK One, l’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme and Acqua di Gio in their most recent iterations (as of Jan 2017), but without any of the synthetic tang.
I’ve got a sample of the eau de parfum here, and I’m just not getting the lavander or moss. Smells quite generic, but I must say, for something so generic-smelling, it really is nicely blended and the ingredients smell like they’re good quality.
Picture this: you use CK One deodorant stick after a lengthy shower with an “blue/ocean” scent body wash, a lemon-scented face wash, use Acqua di Gio shave cream, and apply Issey aftershave balm. That’s basically what you’re getting here.

1747 is a classic barbershop/cologne composition, but it’s VERY well formulated. Like many Galimards, this scent is a strong take on a classic theme.
This feels more “vintage” than most of the “cologne” formulations out there. Galimards are timeless and seldom on trend, but that can be a huge advantage.
The quality of Grasse lavender oil shines through particularly well on this one. The “pencil sharpener” vibe that many modern woody scents have is missing here (and not missed).
I was walking through the supermarket the other day while wearing this and a tiny (5 years old or so) girl was running around the place (poor Mum). I tried to dodge her but she crashed into my leg, looked up, did the shy kid thing and ran away. As I walked away I heard her say to her mum, “Mummy, that man smelled good!”
Kids have no filters, so you know you smell good when a kid says so. Or at least I choose to believe so in this case, since my wife really loves this one on me.

Çok keyifli klasik bir erkek kokusu. Açıkçası sadece 10 ml aldığım için üzüldüm. Azzaro, Polo gibi klasiklerle rahatça kapısır. Lavanta yi baskın olduğu zaman sevmem ve 1747 de lavanta tam kıvamında. Parfüm dışında jel ve Deodorant gibi ürünler olsa harika olurdu. Bence bulduğumuz yerde alın, pişman olmazsiniz.
