Was always a big fan of T.M Pure Havanne and then couldn't get hold of it or justify the price of the ones that were availble.
The first couple of sprays turned me right off so threw it to the back of the Frag drawer.
After a couple of months I thought I'd give it one more crack before turfing it...to my suprise it was as close to the real thing that I could have wanted. A lesson in Masceration of sorts. Did the same thing with a couple of other bottles from Palermo and am pleasantly suprised.
As per the name of this frag, 280 is definitely an 'inspiration' for Pure Havane as it is similar and not be considered a clone.
It is still however a pleasant offering with the hints of chocolate and tobacco and a dry down favouring more towards the woody Stryax whereas the real PH settles with a bit more tobacco.
I could still get whiffs of it on skin and clothes after 9hrs on a warm summers day.
