In cloves coma
Oh, how I've been looking forward to this fragrance!

An almond-cherry note to start? Give it to me! Sweet pipe tobacco? Gorgeous Turkish honey? I ask for it!

Unfortunately, the situation with Hoja de Cuba is different from many of my previous commentators. Hoja de Cuba does not take me on a fragrance journey to sultry, Caribbean Cuba. Also not to stroll in a southern old town or on the veranda of an old hacienda
In contrast, the perfume takes me away to a narrow, sultry spice cellar. Tobacco leaves may have been stored here at some point, and from somewhere there is a heavy sweetness in the air. But the room is apparently only used as a storage for cloves. The baskets full to the brim with allspice and dried cloves pile up to the ceiling.
An escape from the small, badly insulated room is not foreseeable.

In the end, the clove contained in Hoja de Cuba cold-bloodedly and ruthlessly kills all other ingredients. And those which it cannot completely eradicate lie badly beaten on the ground.

A visit to the Pipe Shop
My father belonged to the rare species of man who liked to go shopping.
Especially with me.

This mutual pleasure was always preceded by a long look on his part at my wardrobe - with the result that he found that there had to be something new.
I gladly agreed to that.

Especially as we then made ourselves comfortable in noble boutiques, at which I hurried otherwise only shyly past.

The fancy saleswomen recognized us as a duo and Pa was immediately offered a comfortable armchair, and permission to smoke his cigar while presenting me with original fashion.

I felt as if I was on clouds - which also hovered around me bluishly from the good cigar.
We took our time - just as a cigar takes its time.
Not like a cigarette.

And if the noble shopping bags were filled for me - then the must swerve in the Pipe Shop was due.

The smell in the air-conditioned cigar room was an experience for me as well as the stay in the boutiques.

The tobacco scent was soft, spicy and exquisite - and we also took our time there.
Numerous humidors were opened, and it was sniffed - accompanied by expert comments of the boss.
Not unlike a visit to a perfumery.

But somehow the atmosphere was almost solemn.
Hoja de Cuba captures this dignified men's mood well - elegant but casual.
And radiating a certain calm contentment.

I'm humming quietly: Oh my dad...

El corazón de Cuba
The warm and humid wind passes through the sugar cane. A soft, velvety rustling sounds through the early night. I'm sitting on the terrace of the old Cuban hotel. The large hall is quiet, with a gentle click of the billiard balls and quiet conversations while the men play at the table. The radio plays and plays the old Cuban love songs with quiet rhythms.

The large garden is wild and exotic.
The heliotrope is in full bloom and the wind carries its marzipany-andelic scent over to me. The air has become sweet and heavy. The night is starry and the moon is bright. He puts his silvery light on the adjoining jungle. The jungle. It spreads its own scent of woody notes and spicy vetiver, the flapping of wings penetrates into the woods. The birds rest.

Sweet and bitter is the taste on my tongue of rum and the cigar in my hand. Tobacco smoke permeates the terrace and the garden. It's the smell of Cuban nights.

Sweet, heavy, spicy and tobacco pregnant is the warm night. Step behind me. A tender touch on my shoulder. Followed by a quiet, feminine voice whispering softly into my ear...-Friedlich hier!-. And I think... how right she is!

-El latido del corazón de Cuba es más fuerte en la noche.-
-The heartbeat of Cuba is strongest at night.-
