First of all I have no Loewe fragrance in my collection yet, so that had to change obviously and I thought why not start with this vintage first edition? Thanks to Tom for the information, it seems there are more bottles available from this eBay seller! Now, today I have received my bottle as well, it's a 60ml splash bottle that looks quite 1980 or so. This eBay seller has specialised in exactly that and a beautiful buyer experience has just found it's way to my desk. This bottle has a marvellous leather top, that is put into the cap. The fragrance I have just decanted into an 8ml atomizer and the great results on my left hand are speaking words of wisdom from the 80's (not a bad thing at all). This is top notch if I may say so and Ken_Russell's post is spot on:
Loewe para Hombre is to me, almost a "textbook example" about how an tastefully discreet and understated conservative fragrance should be. Non-generic, manly as opposed to teeny, yet sooo immensely distinguished and sophisticated, long-lasting without being obstructive, complex and unpredictable without being convoluted- I wonder why so many fragrance lovers are still unaware of this treat and its immense potential, all this also at a very advantageous price (since most websites or regular retail stores selling it do so at a great value for money-ratio).
The directory tells us that it was first released 1978. I have found this on the bottom of the box:
"Fabricado por: N° de Registro 28/78"
If they write their production date on their boxes the same way as car tire brands do, it would definitely mean "week 28 of 1978".
