Because I only want you, my love.
When she was 17 years old, she got to know the man she was going to meet within the next 2 years
i would marry him. He was charming, full of love, protecting her with all his self.

Soon the young couple caught up with the reality that love and breath are not enough for life. In need, he got involved in drug deals. Within the next 10 years, he would develop into a baron.

Habanita had everything that could be materially possessed. Pure luxury. But the fear for her husband and a possible loss always flowed through her blood, and she never lost. Integrating children into this construct was seen by both as irresponsible. The people around them, of course, knew what this wealth was made of.

Habanita was often lonely. She sat alone in this huge house. Often she thought of the first years with him. The time, the nights, the experiences together. Now she waited more than she knew him from her. To escape these feelings, she spent many nights in bars.

She loved her silk frill blouses combined with a slim mini skirt made of leather - matching elegant black stilettos. She loosely stuck her soft, brown hair up, her golden jewellery was as filigree and yet determined as her appearance. Her perfume was classic, reminiscent of old times and had a beautiful, moving depth. Resinous, deep powdery, warm paired with beautiful flowers.
Wicked and yet pure. A beautiful woman who had made herself up for herself and dreamt she could once again enjoy a summer night out with her husband. But this one was missing. Business was waiting. So she once again went armed with pens and paper into the mixture of nightlife.

The majority of people, including men, admired Habanita's beauty in silence and distance - out of respect and fear of her husband. She was unapproachable and yet so fascinatingly beautiful.

The loneliness followed her, the questions in her head penetrate her innermost. And yet the loud voices in the bar soothed Habanita's soul somewhat. For now. She wrote down her thoughts in the form of poetry, smoking her vanilla cigarillo paired with a glass of Martini.
The longing for closeness, in any form, once again immediately seized her upon arrival in this palace without a companion. Her overflowing passion killed her inwardly and yet she always waited, really always just for him.

Habanita undressed, threw her red satinnegligée over her and went to the land of dreams - to a place that would do justice to her love. Away from this recurring reality. She was about to fall asleep as she felt fingers of gentle man's hands gliding across her cheek. So familiar, so well known. She opened her eyes. Your husband was here again. After weeks she felt bliss, joy, security, security. He kissed her and showed her a beautiful journey of love that night. Her soul caught fire again. Every time. Just for him. A lifetime.

For me Habanita is a dark scent that radiates light. It reminds of love, of pain, of longing, of a woman's needs. A woman's soul life. A woman who is deeply loyal and knows exactly what her heart desires. All or nothing.

To describe the single notes is difficult for me - because this scent is quite complex.

I smell absolutely nothing burned. Smoky? Definitely. It reminds me of the classic scents of bygone times. Self-confident and far away from a shallow water.

This Habanita is a woman to fall in love with.

Dark powdered glory
Yes, I know, an Oriental, but if I should imagine a dark powder smell: et voilà! For a long time I only knew the Flanker Habanita l'Esprit, which for a long time was one of my closest favourites and daily companions. At that time I only got a taste of Habanita in Grasse and postponed our getting to know her until later.

In Nice I allowed myself a small bottling this year and now, in the first days of September, the already clearly cooler become: It's a dream! If this perfume didn't exist, it would have to be invented.
Why dark powder now? I often find powdery scents heavy and very flattering for the skin, especially when there is a lot of iris. At the same time these fragrances vary for me somewhere on the scale "clean" to "bed sheets that have not been changed for some time".

This one, it has already been tinted, then has something of very sensually rumpled bed sheets (already for a few nights...), a shot of rum or liqueur went there still beside it, the smoke of cigarillos with vanilla aroma still rakes between bed and curtains. It is a scent of well-being with a certain pinch of daring, wickedness and something like that should be done first! A little angel, a little whore, a little mama - WOW! I could imagine that the original might have been a bit more scratchy, more angular in a positive sense, in the course of time this fragrance might well remain a bit more scratchy to my taste.

Besides, despite the fact that it has been reformulated, the fragrance has a strong vintage touch, which is great!
Also I can understand the connection to Habanita l'Esprit, even if in my opinion they are two completely independent fragrances, but nevertheless they belong together, the bright one (someone wrote very aptly to HlE "the moaning virgin") and the black Diva.
I don't know if I would wear the scent at work, but at home as a mom I find it just as wearable as in the evenings/nights in the bar. Currently I spray him very much also to go to bed on.
A beautiful fragrance all around. Very feminine (on men he would be almost too sweet to me..), the fragrance as a statement for itself.

The Whip and the Body
Review based on the current formulation (EDP, squared bottle).

Habanita is a perfume for a dominatrix.

Do you know the bizarre 1963 Italian film La frustra e il corpo, starred by Christopher Lee and Daliah Lavi? Lee plays the part of a sadistic nobleman who takes a pleasure in flogging his love interest (Lavi). Sadomasochism and women abuse does not seem to be likeable things, are not they? Surprisingly enough, it is a hauntingly beautiful movie, with a darkly romantic atmosphere and fascinating characters.

Now, turn over the story, and make the Lavi's character the active one in the film. Give her a whip. Drap her in a black leather corset and a cloak. And Habanita could be her perfume.

No jokes with Habanita, a full- grown woman draped in black leather and furs, a cigar in one of her hands, a whip in the other. She likes strong drinks and eats bloody steaks, she uses strong words and calls the things by her name. But, in the inside, she is a tender, sweet woman who takes that pose in order to conceal what she thinks it can be taken for weakness. She is a muscular, dark, Latin woman, very much in the style of the Julio Romero de Torres or Hermen Anglada-Camarasa heroines. But she has a heart. She is very much like a she-panther with her babies.

For me, it is indeed a nice surprise to see how this fragance, that can be easily dispatched as "old lady fragance" is still sold, and in excelent form. No ruined by disastrous reformulations like many other beautiful perfumes of yesterday.

Sillage and lasting power very good.

A must try for all perfume lovers.

An unique perfume that excells the house of Molinard. It's smoky, resinous, animalic and quite spicy. It was love at first sniff for me.+2

On me, this developes an overpowering wintergreen (or Germolene) antiseptic smell. Is this mastic?+3
