I am very familar with that cologne, the regular Varon Dandy (not the Platinum). It is still available in Hispanic neighborhoods in the NY and NJ area for about $10. Bottle, label and plastic cap look somewhat cheap, and it is available also in supersize bottles. It is a kind of odd mixture of sweetness (like a tropical soda initially)? with some leather, brief citrus and powder notes. In small doses it is fine, sweet warm relatively calm, very everyday, almost a kind of soap. And I recall when I was in Spain in 1990 smelling that fragrance on someone in a church in Madrid. It is old-fashioned, speaks of grooming, not that popular with the younger generation if at all. Probabaly more in the Caribbean these days more than in South America. The after shave like other Spanish colognes (Brummel) is a mentholated unapologetic nightmare, with almost nothing in common with the original cologne.
