Reviews of Agua Fresca

Holiday scents #5 - Adolfo Dominguez, Agua Fresca

Traditional barbershop goodness in the assertive but friendly Spanish aesthetic. Predictable notes for its genre, opens up rather soapy, eventually dries down to a glorious cedar with spicy, nutmeggy overtones, but never too sweet. Rather old-school, it is lovely for work in summer, with around nine hours longevity on skin and acceptable sillage. A typically local, Mediterranean effort.

Interestingly, it is terrifically good value to buy in Spain, compared to the large premium on other Spanish labels, such as Loewe. I bought a 60ml bottle with a 20ml travel vial on the basis of testing. I find it a very nice addition to my collection for use in the remainder of the summer, although I find the bottle design to be poorly thought out and prone to leakage - the rounded spray apparatus does not fit well on the squared bottle. Nice wooden cap though.

This is grassy green with a woody amber dry down. Unfortunately its all over in 90 minutes max. Hence a neutral not a thumbs up

This fragrance is simply classy! I must say its longevity on my skin is something like 12+ hrs, I know is this is amazing. Siliage and projection is also too good, no doubt a masterpiece by Adolfo Dominguez. Thumbs up 10/10. :)

This is an underrated gem. Love it, and a steal at the price. A wonderful uncomplicated citrus which hints at the more expensive Armani Eau Pour Homme, an all time elegant classic and personal favorite. Agua Fresca also wears like an updated version of Eau Sauvage by Christian Dior.

One of the best citrus / woody scents out there with Eau d'Orange Verte by Herm├Ęs. Fresh, calm, sunny, rustic and masculine. I like the "old-bookstore-style" metaphor by castorpollux. As has been said, the longevity is not great but this is normal in such citrus fragrances.

The opening reminds me of the tangy nose of a cut-fruit laden white Rioja Sangria (served in an icy cold blue-glass pitcher) that I enjoyed at a fine Spanish restaurant. Woodsy, herbal notes back up the fruit but they don't overwhelm it. The laid back middle notes and drydown keep the fruit alive and both phases hold quietly close to the skin but are definitely not hard to notice and enjoy, particularly as the modest sillage drifts past the wearer's nose on a warm, sultry summer evening.
