Havana by Aramis, Launched in 1994, Havana is a spicy oriental men’s fragrance.
Reminiscent of the city it’s named for, this masculine scent opens with intense aromatics. Artemisia, caraway, and basil are fresh and spicy. The herbal scent is balanced by the sweet, succulent notes of mandarin for a classic composition. The green ambiance continues through heart tones. Tobacco fills the senses with its rich, dry profile. Whiskey blends with cinnamon, carnation and balsam for a rugged, outdoors scent that projects for hours. Patchouli and oakmoss are pungent, highlighting the fougere profile while sandalwood softens the fragrance to a warm, silky finish.
Estee Lauder introduced the Aramis brand in 1964. Perfumer Bernard Chant created the original fragrance, blending the notes of fresh bitter herbs with florals for a refined, masculine scent. The product line expanded to include, aftershave, body wash and other men’s toiletries. Women’s fragrances were introduced in 1990 and today there are 35 scents in the collection.
