Yeah, I bought some new formulated Habanita EdT in the black, gold plated Lalique bottle. Nice bottle. The juice was awesome. All about ashes, blood, but sweet too, overly potent. Sold it, because erverybody I asked about it felt the same.
For curiosity I bought a maybe vintage mini. That was an other beast. Lighter, sweeter, more powder, less sharp. But I still don't like it that much. In this mold I prefer ELdO - Tom Of Finland. Rubber, tobacco, tarsoap (google!), saffron, sweet underpinnings, perfectly male and innocent. My GF is fond of using it her own, go figure! By now I feel a bit tired of 'warm' frags anyway. That is my impression from the maybe vintage Habanita, warmth. The contemporary EdT came out to be unpleasantly sharp and bold.
