Once upon a time, perhaps it was in Havana during the 1930s, there lived a most beautiful Cuban dancer who was so panther-lithe and so incredibly talented, she broke the heart of every man who ever came to the night-club where she danced. Even the men that passionately loved other men, fell under the spell of the exquisite Rosa.

Rosa didn’t care, she only loved to dance, and after her dance each night, to step on the long-stemmed red roses that littered her stage, crushing their fragrant petals, and to be alone, outside, wrapped only in the moonlight, to smoke her beloved Partagas Perfectos Finos as the sun rose on her bare skin.

In fact, so many men adored Rosa, they were inspired to have her name tattooed on their bodies, and usually across their hearts, underscored with a single red bloom.

The men’s mothers, their sisters, their girlfriends, wives and daughters stamped their feet and shouted at their men to “get rid of that ROSA tattoo”, but every single man replied

“I will always be yours, and I will always be true, but you can never erase Rosa from my heart”.

This is her perfume…

A superb vintage-styled red rose amber which is also rich with luscious resins from South America, and totally plush with blonde tobacco and narcissus absolute. Long-lasting with grand sillage, ROSA is pure parfum concentration.
