Aaaahh... huh? Nah!
Habanita l' Esprit was one of my favourite fragrances for a while. I was all the more excited about the original Habanita and the Cologneversion. I write the commentary from memory, I tested the scent last week in France, so I can't give you the exact details anymore. The fragrance starts (surprise!) fresh, nice fresh, citric, bergamot, everything ok. I had a bit of the impression you get from some American 90-minute love films. It's all clear after five minutes anyway. So nice start, then in the heart note rather unspectacular and then however: Bummbummbumm... Shalimar?! You're serious? But not so good, so deep and so smoky. A Lightlightlight version (like finding a cheap copy on the rummage table). Please contradict me or stone me, but then I thought to myself "No, then I'd rather have the real Shalimar" (by the way, I discover right in the groin: "If you like Habanita La Cologne, you often like Shalimar" ... funny coincidence... Unfortunately the fragrance didn't make it on my wish list...
