We did tell you to go to Cuba in one of our recent articles, but if you can’t really afford the trip you can always use a substitute. Something like the Czech & Speake Cuba Cologne, complete with the feelings of regret that you’re not actually in Cuba, just vaguely smelling like a smooth cigar dancing on latino music while drinking rum.
True to its name, its initial top notes contain hints of rum alongside the lime, peppermint and bergamot. The middle notes are spicy like the Cuban chicken you’ll never get to taste. The base notes last all through the night with traces of cedar wood and tobacco. Obviously. If you can’t afford this either, we recommend buying rum and cigars and drowning your sorrows while pretending to be Hunter S.Thompson.
