After dedicating his first fragrances to the island of Saint Barth where he lives since 1983, Zolty now celebrates the generosity and uniqueness of Cuba’s capital. The five new compositions are inspired by his travel notebook, which pages are imbued with life, memories and encounters, as well as with the decadent and revolutionary charm of Havana.

With PARFUMS DE HAVANE, you immerse yourself in the writings and photographs of Jacques Zolty. It’s like taking a walk with him through the city streets, capturing its deepest soul and wearing its timeless charm on the skin.

CUBATA

Oriental, Woody

The smell of the cigar factory is the smell of local life. The smell is everywhere, in the eyes, in the nose, in the mouth. The overbearing sun of the Caribbean land heats up the men and the cigar factories. The aroma of the fresh tobacco leaves blend together with the smell of the people; the skin oozes and speaks of sacrifices, of fatigue, of lives tied to the Puros production.The essence of Cuba and its Cigars are for many a pure almost divine pleasure, for others, the Torcerdores, the story of their own lives.

HEAD: Tobacco leaves, Birch
HEART: Spicy notes, Rum, Honey

ME GUSTAS

The Cubans’ spirit is like the Havana coffee: intense, sweet, enveloping and unique. There is no other coffee like this one: you drink it slowly to savor its aroma and creaminess, while tuning into everything that surrounds you.

HEART: Jasmine, Carnation seeds, Black Pepper
BASE: Vanilla, Vetyver, Amber, Cedarwood, Tonka Bean


SEVERO

Oriental, Spicy

The heart and energy of a city is also in its people. People like Severo. Everyone loves Severo, the man from Cuba with his charming features, his skin marked by the sun, his colors, his deep eyes. Severo loves his land, his typical perfumes, his roots. He lets himself go in the horizon at the sunset, sipping his favorite cocktail, Cuba Libre. Cuba Libre is a decisive, strong and intense mix that is perfectly represented by the free spirit of Severo.

HEART: Davana, Birch, Black Pepper

HAVANA RAIN

Oriental, Spicy

In Cuba, during summer, there’s a specific point in time when the scorching heat of the day is about to break. The clouds suddenly thicken, the light darkens and people come out in the street to look up at the sky. The air is filled with the smell of very hot asphalt, but within minutes the rain takes over.

HEART: Juniper berries, Jasmine, Pink Pepper, Cumin
BASE: Amber, Labdanum, White Musk


LEONELLA

Floral

The Hotel Ambos Mundos, in Havana, has been home to Ernest Hemingway’s secrets and dreams. He spent a lot of time in his room 511 observing someone, who greeted him from the street before getting into a convertible and driving off, leaving behind a trail of scent and charm. That girl was an aspiring actress named Leonella. The only woman who denied the attention of the famous writer and who remained forever in his heart.

HEAD: Fruity notes, Jasmine, Broom
HEART: Gardenia, Ylang-Ylang, Cane sugar
BASE: Amber, Patchouli
