A riot of colours, pulsating energy, rhumba rhythms and rich, exotic smells: that‘s Cuba in a nutshell. The island of the revolution; a nation that lived in its own bubble for decades and is now gradually reawakening like a sleeping beauty. Cuba is an island populated by young people who are no longer in awe of their history, but who look boldly and with optimism to the future, approaching life with a combination of serenity and ease, but without being completely certain of where they are going. For us, Cuba is a dream destination, a place frozen in time. There are no shopping malls or global brand flagship stores. Instead, it is a place with its own, distinctively vibrant rhythm. Those who come find that they leave a piece of their heart here, amongst the crumbling colonial architecture and classic cars in faded bonbon colours. They surrender to the scent of freshly brewed coffee, savoury bean stew and herbal, leathery tobacco, underpinned with the beguiling tang of overripe guavas, papayas, crushed mint and sliced lime. They are captivated by the incredible warmth of the people, who remain openhearted despite the hardship of everyday life. Join us in celebrating this moment! Immerse yourself in a lush cascade of sensual scents and fragrances that speak of an irrepressible joie de vivre. Who knows what the future holds for this island. One day, this historic panorama will become a thing of the past, like so many other things, and we will remember it fondly with a nostalgic sigh. Viva la Fiesta! Viva la Vida! Viva Cuba!
This desire, this fragrant longing is reflected in the fragrances that are enjoying great popularity in scented candles, shower gel, shampoo, air fresheners and high quality perfume compositions. They smell like a day in Havana – pulsating with a blend of sweetness and spiciness, with notes of vanilla, tobacco, honey rum and exotic fruits. Or freshly floral like a day on a Caribbean beach with sunshine, the sea and mojitos: the zesty punch of lime, mint and sugar cane, vanilla, Caribbean blossoms, coconut and amber bring that unique Cuban feeling into the home.
