The light heart of Old Havana
Old Havana - big cars, big cigars. Salsa cubana to "Buena vista Social Club", hot, dancing nights in the twenties to fifties. Smoky bars where the rum flows in streams, an Arechabala S.A. Havana Club dark maybe or at best a Ron Extra Anejo Arechabala 75, glittering sequined dresses on the heavy, shiny radiators of very thick cars. Clark Gable, later Rock Hudson guest in the legendary Sloppy Joe's Bar, attraction for Americans in times of prohibition and cult meeting point for all lovers of Cuba Libre and Pina Colada. And again the heavy smell of thick, expensive cigars. The spiciness of tobacco, the smoky velvet, the sour sweat from armpits over hips that have swayed to ChaChaCha or Salsa for a night. The smell of fresh leaflets, expensive women's perfumes, expensive men's perfumes, the smell of the expensive, old, chic club world of Cuba.
This is roughly what The dark heart of Old Havana alludes to. But, oh, the scent cannot awaken these associations. If you tried it without knowing its name, you would probably never reach the goal to which the fragrance journey is supposed to lead. Initially, a slightly sweet, mainly fruity fragrance is noticeable, less citrus, more dried fruit, a slightly fermented component, enhanced by a little sugar, but which does not hide the delicately rotten. And then you wait. One cigar long. Two cigars long. Three tens... Oops, is something happening? No, false alarm. There is no trace of tobacco. The sweetness of vanilla and tonka does not set in either, only after hours a hint can be detected. Anyone who smells rum in here has a lot of imagination. Understandable - who doesn't dream of a few nights in historical Cuba, of the glory of the old times? But The dark heart of Old Havana cannot illustrate this dream, it simply does not penetrate to the dark, smoky, rum-soaked heart of Havana. Instead, a tamed, gentle fruit scent with reminiscences of vanilla sweetness presents itself. This is rather little for what the name promises and no comparison to the great tobacco classics. Too bad, but still nice. Certainly Havana also has a light, bright heart, a fruity, sweet sunny heart. If you want to discover this, the fragrance of 4160 Tuesdays is the right choice.
