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
