“Perfume Daiquirí is inspired by the 1920s and the iconic women of that era. In this decade of Prohibition, Cuba became the dream destination for writers, Hollywood stars and adventurers. Here one found expert cantineros, exotic ingredients, and a new drier and lighter style of rum: BACARDÍ Carta Blanca, the heart and inspiration of emblematic cocktails such as the Daiquirí, Mojito, Presidente and many others.
The parties hosted by La Familia Bacardí in La Habana, are still remembered today for their unending rounds of Daiquirís and singular guests such as Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo and Mary Pickford - women who inspired great passion and embodied the elegance of the era.
When they entered a room they not only filled the space with their presence, but also with their fragrant perfume.”
