I had a sample of this and with the name Rumba thought maybe it was like Mambo so I didn't expect much. The plum top note jumped out at me and though I'm not a big fruity perfume lover I liked...

I'm not sure I can wear Rumba, but I like to have a little to sniff and admire. Rumba was made by Balenciaga in 1989, and is a precursor to most of the Serge Lutens fragrances. In the base,...
