Warm. Sweet. Soft. Floral. Did I say warm? These are the words that come to mind when I wear Havana by Lisa Fong of Artemisia Perfumes.
"Spicy and warm. Sexy tropical flora and fine French cognac meet and fall in love. Sink into the sensual embrace."
Description from Artemisia Perfumes
I agree. Havana opens with a with a warmth that transports me to a tropical island. Swaying in a hammock while the smell of native flora and a hint of spice wafts through the air. It's a very comforting scent. As the spice, antique clove, fades the floral takes charge. The star of this perfume is coffee flower. The dry down is a bit animalic on me, which adds to that island feel.
Check back next Sunday for another of my Scent, You Say? perfume experiences!
