  • This place is a cool little visit. They have bottles that meet plane guidelines. Trouble is the perfume evaporates very fast. My wife's didn't make it back to states. My completely evaporated about 4 ...  more »
  • At the same time, perfumery and a little Museum of perfume, this pretty boutique at the new art décor enchants with its doors and windows in stained glass light... French perfume, labeled cologne waters "Aromas colonial of the island of Cuba" - Habana 1791 does not demerit either! We buy gladly (and check the tightness of the vials for transport)

  • We popped in here during our recent trip to Havana. We were pretty much ignored for about 20 minutes while other customers were being served - we thought that might be a cultural thing, as in England ...  more »

  • Very nice place to visit and waste your time. Perfumes smells nice but duration of perfumes is terrible. I bought 3 different but make a big mistake. If you like to much any of these perfumes buy only one and smallest, because they are no for real use, after one hour the smell dissappear.
  • I've searched NYC, LA and London for such a place, but this is the first time I've found it, and it's even better than I anticipated. What you have in this small shop on the Mercaderes is ~12 traditionally extracted plant essences (lavender, violet, tobacco), and ~19 other extracts (citrus, etc), all available to smell on strips or on the skin. You can purchase extracts in a range of different containers, from small vials up to large (very old style) chemist flasks, that are absolute beautiful, especially when corked and sealed in wax. You can also consult with a perfumist who learns your preferences and attitudes and helps you to find a perfect combination of ingredients for your unique scent. All of this takes place in a beautiful old laboratory lit with natural light from a massive stained glass window, coloring a water feature in the back of the shop.
  • Old time shop for perfumes, with locally made products, nothing from big brands, it is an interesting place if you have some spare time
  • Beautiful shop, beautiful perfumes. Bought the Dulce Havana for both my husband and my son and they really like it. Bought the Cubano Elegante for myself and love it.
  • amazing shop very helpful spoke some english enough to help me buy what i wanted amazing way they make it smells like heaven
