Truly awful sandalwood fragrance.
Smells like nonna's hair after she has been cooking pasta sauce all day.
Cheap but can't be cheap enough to make it worthwhile. Steer clear of this.
I like the this very much : woody, soft , aromatic ,masculine and cheap. But it has so weak projection and short longtivity (only 1 hour for me).
I use this as everyday casual scent.
"For none but the brave" went the unforgettable advertising for Agua Brava. On my travels I have found the original fragrance still on sale in placs as diverse as AbuDhabi, Cairo, Dammam and east Riffa (Bahrain)!
It is a classic gent's fragrance and evocative of all that is good. Well done Puig.
Best pine fragrance in my opinion. I got the 17 ounce bad boy on this one. It is completely understandable how this one has the following it does around the world. If I had only one cologne, I'd probably want Agua Brava.
Generic, but only if you compare it with its' sibling Quorum. I notice a lot of similarities between the two. Somewhat linear but a note stands out before the drydown. I don't usually read the composition first so I think this "spikey" middle note is a mixture of dry, bitter (and quite overwhelming) pine with a distinct mossy tinge and faint whiffs of oregano leaves. This note predominates from the start in fact, over and above it's citrusy opening. Drydown gets more interesting with the middle notes toning down a bit and letting the leather and patchouli bloom in an interesting mix. Brilliant stuff indeed!
