Added: Perfume Review of L'Artisan Parfumeur Havana Vanille
L'Artisan Parfumeur will issue a new composition this fall inspired by the city of Havana and centering on the vanilla pod called Havana Vanille. It was composed by "resident-nose" Bertrand Duchaufour. The perfume comes after another vanilla fragrance by the same house titled Vanilia created by perfumer Maurice Maurin in 1978.
"From its vibrant Salsa rhythm, its famous cigars and its famous Cuban rum, its
palaces and colonial houses with their old and sometimes broken down facades
to its extraordinary religious buildings like the Santa Clara Convent: from its
streets with those old American cars from the 50s to its beautiful long beaches
like Bacuranao, Boca Ciega, Guanabo, Mégano or Santa María..."...
Havana Vanille is said to be particularly multi-faceted and to offer the characteristic of changing throughout the day.
Notes are: vanilla pod infused in old rum, clove, crystallized dried fruits, leather, a "ball of vanilla and powder"; narcissus, everlasting flower, tonka, with a nuance of tobacoo leaves; balms, smoked woods, musks, vanilla absolute.
