Criminal
What is Habanita? Habanita to me is an olfactory dance. A power struggle of the sexes. A trial of strength between man and woman. Passion, dominance, an attraction and a repulsion. A desire and a contempt. Hunting and killing so close together. Temperament and innocence danced on a sharp blade of seduction and drama. Or a crime of passion perhaps? Habanita is a dance. Habanita is a tango! But unlike usual, here it is not the gentleman who leads. No, here the lady leads. It is the tango with a femme fatale. Erotic, seductive and highly manipulative. Habanita is an embrace. An embrace to the sweet dark sounds of a passionate,rhythmic,accordion of desire and alluring feminine criminality!

Habanita
Habanita is not just a fragrance or perfume. Habanita is rather an aura in which you get caught and sink. A green,bitter-tart rose geranium opens the drama. Bitter and almost brittle and repellent. Threads are spun like a sticky web of tough, resinous mastic. Just as bitter-sweet and yet so warm. Fine, filigree and so perfect that every soul gets caught in it with every twist and turn. With every step, with every turn you are more dazzled by Habanita. Dust fogs your senses and the air becomes muggy-dry and stuffy. Powdery and dry florals of almondy heliotrope draw the light ever softer. Ylang-ylang and animalic-meaty jasmine switch poses and it rains fruity-bitter mimosa on the sensual parquet of doom from earthy-dark and woody-old patchouli. The band plays the final deep-spicy act of abandonment or surrender. The air grows sweeter and more beguiling. To the passionate rhythm of the tango, the chords of dry and dusty-spicy vanilla ring in the ears like tantalizingly intoxicating notes, and the body becomes a soft-creamy sounding body of smooth-milky sandalwood. A final embrace and kiss populates this tango of tart smoky and dark oak moss. The curtain falls and with it any inhibitions and concerns!

Conclusion
Habanita is a paradox and a mystery. It combines the opposites of feelings,desires and emotions. Habanita is soft,tender,innocent and playful like a lolita. On the one hand! On the other hand Habanita is decadent, proud, passionate, dominant and highly self-confident like a femme fatale. A perfume that manages to combine the innocence of a Lolita and the dominating power of a femme fatale. Habanita is soft-powdery, delicately floral. But also spicy-sweet and earthy-smoky. Habanita spreads a suspicious aura of dubious innocence and dark seduction. It is elusive and difficult to grasp. A perfume that can be many things. Multifaceted like a dark iridescent prism of inscrutable femininity. If I should describe Habanita with two words???
Seductive-criminal,...would probably be very appropriate!

Mothers, daughters, grandmothers!
"Letter to the Field"
Dearest Paul, you are in good health and well. That is the main thing. .....also, I want to thank you sincerely for the lovely perfume gift as part of your loving package. When I wear this Habanita, I smell the chocolaty-spicy scent of your smoking, heavy and sweet, but in a moment it is floral again, powdery-vanilla and resinous leather smells, like your doublet to which I cling very tightly. I feel protected by your strong hand and at the same time I am full of longing for you. I long for home and child, to please you and our little family, but at the same time I long for passion and wild life. I want to be all woman for you dearest. Just come home soon!.....The world is playing with itself here and I am very afraid that our presumptuous megalomania of war will one day fall back on us in destructive fury. Take good care of yourself my little Paul, the Frenchman does not like you, certainly not there in Paris. .....

"Longing for Life"
Dear big sister .....were you still raving about your new perfume in your last letter? "A wild sensuality of fine smoke, strong florals, sweetness and later dark mystique, while spicy and warmly vanilla. A small, fragrant impression of the restless, erotically charged life here in the big city."
Mom also still has a half-full bottle of this Habanita in her old scent box. Admit it, you didn't know that! Anyway, I tried it too. It smelled lovely of flowers and vanilla, leathery like the scuffed school bag, sweet, warm of spices and resins of the Orient just like in our old stories, and it smelled like the secret, liqueur smoke of the girls' corner at school. I notice in it, too, such a wild, erotic feeling for closeness, as if there were no tomorrow, as if freedom to do anything possible were close at hand. I wish I was with you in the fullness of life......

"Diary entry - life lived"
Today I rewarded myself and put on a good spritz of Habanita. This and looking in the mirror in the morning reminded me of my first encounter with this perfume. It was an explosion of the senses, a whip for the budding housewife, a guide to the emancipation of femininity. Smoky woman, self-determined sex, violent, sinful, dark, wild and always vanilla, this is how the scent stuck to my skin for a long time and fit so well with the times. That was decades ago.
No, dear diary, no whining and regret in retrospect, but as I saw again this morning, life has already left plenty of marks on me. Marks that advancing age just happens to write. They are buried deep in the creases of my face and here between the lines along with some dreams. But I was never unhappy because of that, my life was and is a content one, I look back gratefully. The encounters with Habanita are small islands of happiness for me today, beautiful memories at the end of a fulfilled, intensely lived life.

Habanita by Molinard has accompanied generations for almost 100 years. A women's perfume for a lasting impression in private or in public, for the promise of sinful messages, also for the presentation of noble wardrobe, for the business woman, the housewife, the femme fatale and if he wants, also for a self-confident man. Of course, Habanita is still an immoral offer today, even a wonderfully fragrant as well as a proven, durable and very fair companion.

Thanks to you for following my little look at those times!

A trip to Cuba
At the popular beach Playas de Guardalavaca it had become evening and was still very warm. The beach bars were filled. Hot rhythms sounded over. Caribbean drums accompanied by exotic instruments. Bodies swayed erotically to the salsa. They were sweating. At that moment Habanita came strolling along. With long black hair, her head raised and her hips swinging. Everyone was staring at her. The skin of her warm body shimmered and the men did not take their eyes off her. The wonderful scent of her perfume could be perceived by all. Delicate floral scent, almondy with patchouli and musk. Habanita knew that she was desired. Wherever she appeared, the men surrounded her. The glances that followed her saw her moving further and further away. Back remained a breath vanilla.

Cuba is the largest Caribbean island. An island state, with side islands about 11.5 million inhabitants. Cuba was long under Spanish colonial rule and is governed socialist. Warm all year around 30-34 degrees. The sea is also warm, 24-28 degrees. A wonderful vacation country. With fantastic beaches, the Playa Pilar, with 15 meter high, solid dunes. The Playa Tortiga, the turtle beach, or the Playas de Guardalavaca, a beach loved by residents and tourists. Also many lonely beaches, if one would like to have its peace.
The capital La Habana has about 1.1 million inhabitants. Famous are the approximately 140,000 vintage cars left behind by the Americans and lovingly maintained. The Cubans are very poor, but this does not diminish their zest for life. Everywhere is music and it is danced on the street and celebrated. A totally friendly people.
In Santa Clara can be admired the national monument, a statue of the leader of the rebel army during the Cuban Revolution, Ernesto CHE Guevara.

Also loved are the Cuban cigars, habaneros and Cuban rum. Coffee is also grown. Lots of coffee is drunk and a cup of cafecito is always welcome, no matter what time.

The green oasis of Cuba is the valley Valle de Vernales, a nature reserve, about 10 km long and 4 km wide. One side of Cuba points to Mexico, the other side to Haiti.
With about 11 flight hours from Frankfurt am Main to Havana can be expected.

A wonderful island, to vacation. Everything there, what the heart desires.
Hopefully Corona is soon over. When writing I get really wanderlust.

The Femme Fatal is Aries
The zodiac sign Aries is probably the most hot-tempered of the 12 signs, is always in trouble and is a rebel at heart. Stubborn and temperamental, with the head always through the wall. What few people know, however, is that underneath the hard shell, Aries usually has a soft, vulnerable core that wants to be explored. To us humans there is just more than the naked eye may reveal.

It's a similar story with Molinard's Habanita. The first moment is violent and probably repels weak nerves at first. Habanita doesn't aim to please, doesn't want to be a sweet-flowery pleaser from next door, she's been through and seen too much for that. It's worth giving it a chance, though, because underneath all that smoky resin and dark cherry (not stated, but I smell it anyway, but could just be an association) is pure liquid gold - amber amber wrapped in non-sweet vanilla, bedded on fragile dry florals that never dominate, but are just a supporting hint. Habanita can be quite different, can seduce and turn heads and be almost vulnerable. Not so obvious that everyone notices, but just enough to break hearts by the dozen. She has character and already that is rare these days.

Habanita is a very special perfume and in my opinion absolutely unisex. On men, it underlines facets that like to provide for big eyes - and for compliments. For me, it is quasi self-confidence and sexiness with a touch of scratchiness in a flacon, which, by the way, is also very chic. If you're looking for an oriental with rough edges, you've come to the right place! But beware of a blind purchase: Habanita is really unique.

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.

It's like Lagerfeld Classic with dark flowers instead of tobacco. Men can also wear it.

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