Speak easy: those were the words whispered to clients in illegal bars during the Prohibition… And since today tobacco is a more forbidden pleasure than alcohol, it is to this rare olfactive family that Marc-Antoine Corticchiato’s composition belongs. A suave accord of Havana and oriental leather, refreshed by a splash of mojito. Speakeasy conjures the film noir allure of an age when danger lurked under the glamour. A Tropical bar where Hemingway could have bumped into the characters of To Have and Have Not. Misted glasses, club chairs, smuggled Cuban cigars savored by gentlemen bootleggers under wood ceiling fast churning the damp air… Refreshed by a mojito accord (rum, mint and lime), this suave blond tobacco is enhanced with the liqueur-like richness of immortelle and the hay/almond facets of liatrix and tonka bean. A smooth oriental leather rubbed with rich amber deepens this tawny palette. As tough as Bogart and as sensuous as Bacall in a black satin sheath.
