Ernesto Room Spray by Maison Trudon
‘Leather and Tobacco’
The Ernesto fragrance is inspired by Ernesto Guevara, better known by his pseudonym “Che Guevara” or “El Che”, was born in 1928 in Argentina. A revolutionary and politician, he was one of the symbols of the Cuban Revolution alongside Fidel Castro. At times a great romantic, he was also a cigar lover, believing that smoking them was his “only vice” and a gift from heaven.
The Ernesto fragrance imagines you being in a hotel in Havana, sizzling under the stubborn sun of the Revolution, fierce overtones of leather and tobacco mingle with the waxy silence of wood. Breaking out of the cool dimness, sly grimaces emerge, framed by the smoke of cigars and the barrels of guns.
