Cuba libre in the cigar lounge
A few of the statements already compress it in a very similar direction going.
But you can still devote a few more words to this interesting fragrance.

I haven't really stumbled across Jacques Zolty yet, but ALZD's 5 fragrances have been a special success because of the coherent Cuba theme. So it's like a pentalogy. If this is always a difficult thing to do, it can also seem very stressful. Severo I call my own, 3 of the 4 other fragrances are ready as a sample.

So let's start with Severo.
There's been a lot of talk here about Coke. Bullshit. Cuba Libre here you go, a good one with a decent rum and lime. Maybe a little mint leaf for the garnish.
That's how it starts. Coke alone doesn't do it justice. Lime belongs to a Cuba Libre and you can smell it, namely by a light astringency. So it has to be, A little green flashes through with. Pleasantly the sweetness of the Cuba Libre is not too sticky, so you have paid attention to good balance with a good rum.
Now you might think why would a fragrance want to smell like a long drink and that can only work as a theme fragrance. Yes, I think it is. And that's pretty good.

After a while, as always, the citrus fruits retreat and take over the soft parts of the fragrance. I can't notice a pronounced heart note with pepper and/or birch.
In the base you sit in a beautiful cigar lounge in Havana and slobber on your Cuba Libre. You just have to think away the smoke a little, I hardly notice anything. But what comes to light are leather armchairs and somehow you can imagine smelling good (unlit) cigars.
The leather is not a very fine one from the English men's club where only discussion takes place and where as a woman only the Queen is let in, nor an old leather jacket used for many years. These are old good leather armchairs which have been maintained with beeswax, but which have been used as a seat for a lot of work So you sit there, slurp on, in the background you hear Compay Segundo playing "Chan Chan". De Alto Cedro voy para Marcané... Llego a Cueto, voy para Mayarí
But I digress.
The basis is therefore comfortable leather. It's not in the pyramid, but it's there. Whether you smell tobacco is up to you. The Cuba Libre stays with it for quite a long time, but with time it withdraws and remains a light, pleasant vanilla sweetness that blends beautifully with the leather and becomes one.
Tuscan Leather was mentioned here as the cover for a fragrance part. That fits conditionally, I do not find the leather in Severo so harsch.

A really very successful theme scent that goes great with Cuba.
Theme scents can be difficult to wear. I think you can wear this one very well, especially when the base comes to wear.
Tendency somewhat masculine according to traditional classifications, but quite wearable for women.

I am very happy about this blind purchase, it fills a not yet known gap in my leather scents and actually makes me think of Cuba where I absolutely have to go again.
