A tour of modern-day Havana, Habana 500 will indulge your senses with sights, sounds, flavors and feelings beginning with a refreshing beachside mojito before moving into town. An exciting day of exploration and discovery among the old Spanish colonial buildings leads to a badly needed late afternoon pick-me up in the form of a café Cubano.
The heart does not disappoint. The aroma of Cuban espresso beans blends effortlessly with brown sugar and full-fat milk. Crystallized amber and musky sandalwood keep the gourmand notes in check. Really, the fragrance never becomes too edible. It's cleverly balanced from top to bottom, with an easy breezy feel the whole way through.
