My ever-lasting fragrance. There is no match to it. Amazing beyond words.

Havana is a jolt of sweetness, like accidentally inhaling a bit of airborne Kool-Aid powder as you're adding water to the pitcher. I can't put my finger on what makes it interesting, but it makes me sniff my arm, say, "Gah, I can't believe I'm wearing something this sweet and fruity!" in horror, and then slink back for another appreciative sniff a few seconds later. Wearing more than a dab might result in a migraine of epic proportions. I think of it as the Poison of the 1990s.
Top notes are melon, mandarin orange, peach and apple; middle notes are freesia, heliotrope, ylang-ylang and rose; base notes are honey, tonka bean, vanilla and cedar.

my favorite in the aramis line. a real family resemblance, without being derivative of others. aptly named also, smoky rummy rich sultry evening sweet. a little goes a long way so apply sparingly

Who says you can't mix lemon with chocolate? Not the noses at Aramis! Havana Pour Elle has got to be one of the funkiest and most iconoclastic fragrances I've smelled in a long time. It's right there in line for the Unorthodox Blending Prize with Voluspa Linden Blond Tabac. Havana is Habanita on vacation in Miami, wearing Douce Amère. Lemon rind, round and floral as opposed to juicy and sharp, is combined with deep dark chocolate to create a haunting shadowy-bright accord that's somehow reminiscent of absinthe or Pernod. Throw it all on a damp bed of blond tobacco leaves and you've got one of the most unique and mysterious fragrances you'll ever try. If you do a google search for Havana you'll find a description like this: "A crisp, floral blend, feminine and refreshing." HA!!! Whoever wrote that should be flogged. Introduced in the 1990s, Havana Pour Elle is a gangster's moll walking straight out of the 1930s wearing giant sunglasses and sipping lemonade, pistol tucked daintily in bikini strings. (String bikini in the 1930s? Indulge me.) Totally unique; you may love it or you may hate it, but you won't find anything else like it.
