Little Miss Priss ...
For the purposes of this review, I have Miss Habanita on my right hand and Mama Habanita on my left hand. Never have a mother and daughter (I'm not even sure that was the intention here LOL) been more mismatched.

Miss Habanita opens with a deluge of sweet Muscat grapes and a bowlful of freshly sliced white peaches. It reminds me of a drink I had once at a restaurant in New York by name of Delmonico's, right across the way from the Plaza Hotel, called a Bellini. This concoction was made with white peach juice and sickeningly sweet Spumante ... blech and double blech!!! I am completely off fruit in fragrances when represented in this fashion. It's like drinking a glass of Muscat d' Alexandrie ... tooth-ache inducing.
When compared to the grande dame Habanita, this spotty sixteen year old should rather have stayed home. Habanita is sexy and a little wanton, inspiring one to grand gestures of "champagne pour tout le monde" and dancing giddily atop the bar in a Cuban nightclub, cigar in one hand and cuba libre in the other!! Miss Habanita on the other hand (teehee) is like Saffy from Absolutely Fabulous ... dull as dishwater when compared to her delinquent mother Edina.
The sweet fruit notes of this composition continue to soar well into the dry-down, trampling rough shod over any attempts from the flowers or woods to even get a word in edgewise. Then the Vanilla takes over, continuing this saccharine fest ad nauseum.

So much more could have been done with Miss Habanita ... sadly, this is the first Molinard creation I have tried that has left me totally disappointed.
