“Roses Wrapped in Leather, Dipped in Vanilla Booze”
MOLINARD : Habanita
by Molinard (1921)
Originally used to spray on the cigarette; smoking was a sign of female emancipation. Think femme fatale. Set the stage for FRACAS: Bandit (1944) and LAUDER: Youth Dew (1953).
Incense, powdery tobacco; Mousse de Saxe. Paradoxically, also flowers, heliotrope; then vetiver, patchouli and vanilla.
