    Default Pure Havane

    Hi guys, I have a question.

    I found a Pure Havane 100ml for a good price, but I have never smelled it.
    I love Pure Malt though, do you guys think I should blind buy it? I've read
    a lot of good reviews also, so I'm interested.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would give the green light on that. It's a very nice scent IMO. (381)

    Go for it. Cherry tobacco, with a vanilla drydown.

    Sounds good. What about the longevity?

    Sufficient. I find it lasts longer than Pure Malt.

    Longevity on my skin is fine.

    It's not like DHI right? Because I allready have a 150ml of it.

    I say, buy it with confidence....think unsmoked cherry cavendish, the kind that you might pick up at a specialty tobacco shop. I get all day longevity from the stuff and I enjoy it much more than Pure Malt.

    I prefer PH over PM, but I wouldn't blind buy it. It's readily available so you might as well sample before buying.

    Pure Havane was my go to over the summer. Really easy to wear and definitely has the tobacco for the first 3-4 hours.

    I have always wanted to try this one. I hope to in the near future.

    Longevity hasn't been an issue for me in the least bit. I put it on at 1 PM today before heading to class, and at the current time of 2 AM, I can still smell it on my wrists and shirt. Great projection for a few hours, but not too loud at that. Smells like fantastic cigars with a subtle cherry note, and as others have said, a vanilla drydown. Can't go wrong IMO.

    If you like Pure Malt, pretty sure you'll enjoy Pure Havane.
