A quintessential Eau de Cologne with the most natural scent one can find. Beautiful and perfect for splashing on in the morning, afternoon, or evening. Brilliant to layer with so many scents with lavender - including Caron Pour Un Homme. Simply put - the best lavender soliflore ever created. Gracias, Senior Puig...please keep producing this gorgeous scent. One point to note...while this is very inexpensive in the large 25.5oz 'dishsoap' plastic bottle, simply transfer some to glass. Cut the plastic nib under the cap and dispense into a glass container. Personally, I use a small bud vase that I cover with nice towel and cup my hand and splash on...for me, the only way to wear it. But, one could spritz away if they desire. Perfection in scent. "Una oda a lavanda..." ("An ode to lavender...") Cheers.
Agua Lavanda by Antonio Puig, 1940
This brings a day of levity. I bought the huge bottle, as this comes in a couple of sizes: Large, Bigger, and Huge. The Huge size was around $15 American. It's SO worth it! I put this on and I am instantly brought back. I am in my 30s, but for some reason I seem to invoke memories of the 50s when I wear it. It's not a huge hit with other people, except for older ladies (old ladies seem taken by me for the most part, but Agua Lavanda just brings out the compliments). I wear it for myself. It has a few uses: 1. Everyday scent 2. Quick splash after being around garlic, smoke, tacos, or cleaning the cat box. 3. A little squirt on the pillows in the early P.M. so your bedding smells nice. 4. Use on cuts, scrapes, and bruises, bug bites, and muscle aches. 5. Insects greatly dislike the wonderful lavender scent, so they stay away (they have poor taste anyway). 6. Has antibacterial properties, which make for a good face wash in the way one would use witch hazel. 7. Lavender has many medicinal properties and can smooth the skin. We're looking at an all-purpose fragrance. Not everybody will compliment you on your amazing smell, but you certainly won't offend anybody either. Good stuff. My grandpa was onto something.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present: the perfect fragrance. Agua Lavanda is the smell of daydreams. A lovely breeze of soapy lavender that will magically make you look more elegant in the perception of those who cross your path. One shouldn't overanalyze but simply enjoy spells like these. What irony that such a treasure comes in a large plastic bottle for about 5 euro.
Lavender and leather. Smell again...lavender and leather, it's all you got and it's all you need. A clean smell that bring you back in time when men were men. It's my cologne choice for my own pleasure, no one else.
Great lavendar note and one of the true bargains in fragrance. I use this as an aftershave, on my hands, and before I go to sleep. It's just such a soothing and relaxing smell.
Of all the Agua de Colonia, Acqua di Colonia, Eau de Cologne, o whatever you may wanna call them, this is among the best. I does not last at all, I mean, you have to shower yourself on it and less than one hour later you would need to do it again, but that is true with 4711, Heno de Pravia and hundreds of otherd "Colonias/Colognes" I have tried, so no loss of points in that regard, actually it lasts a little bit longer than the rest, but that is no virtue either. It is refreshing, feels like you are running through a field of lavender on a spnng morning, too bad the field is so short LOL. And $10.15 for 750 mL (25.5 oz.), it is a bargain anywhere, even if I have to bathe myself on it every hour or so, it come cheaper than any fragrance I can think of. Thumbs up
Agua Lavanda is one of my very favorite lavender scents. It's got the perfect balance between fresh and creamy. There are nice herbal elements to it along with some hints of geranium, clary sage and wood. The dry down is a wonderful tonka experience. Overall, this is an excellent cologne splash that has very typical EDC longevity. In trying to out maneuver the low longevity I did pretty well bathe in it recently by pouring it into my hand along with the Puig Lavanda body lotion and applying all over my body. I was VERY fragrant for several hours, turning many heads in line at Starbucks. Lavanda is an exemplary lavender scent that is quite uplifting and bracing. Highly recommended for lavender cologne purists especially. Top Notes: Lavender, Rosemary, Spike, Petitgrain, Bergamot Middle Notes: Clary Sage, Geranium Base Notes: Musk, Tonka, Cedarwood, Moss
I challenge anyone to dislike Puig's lavender water. What's not to like? A cologne that smells of fresh Spanish lavender, herbs, and sweetened by a gentle touch of tonka and moss in the base? Truly divine stuff. The scent is brisk, green, ephemeral, and put simply, it smells amazing. Get the 7 oz glass splash, not the stuff that comes in plastic.
2ThumbsUP!! This may be uni but smells MANLY 2 me!! If you're meeting your girl's parents for the first time don't wear the recent new "metrosexual" fruity scents, show them your intentions are sincere when it comes to their little girl! Wear a manly OLD SCHOOL scent like AGUA LAVANDA!!
Shamu1's notes apply perfectly. This is the ultimate lavender. I much prefer the complexity of the woody Spanish lavender over the sometimes cloying sweetness of English lavender. I use this stuff in all its various forms, which, I guess, is just the big jug of splash. I wish this came in 55 gallon drums. The only problem is how quickly it dissipates and becomes a "skin only" affair. Absolutely wonderful and perfect in every way.
