Old Havana Perfume Museum
This communist country can still appreciate its fragrant past.
While Cuba is a communist country, there are still some frivolous, commercial things for which the Cubans have a great weakness. Perfume is one of them.
In Old Havana stands Habana 1791, a collection of bottles, ingredients, and historical artifacts all related to perfume. The museum has a collection of French perfumes, including Chanel No. 5, as well as great Cuban perfumers Gravi, Sebatés and Crusellas. Most of the Cuban perfumes on display predate 1960, with the exception of one large collection.
Suchel Fragrencia is the state perfume and soap maker, and the official state perfume produced in the country. The museum has their complete collection.
