    Default Magno, La Toja?!

    Can anybody tell me anything about this Spanish Eau de Toilette?!
    It's quite delicious; gourmand. It's a vintage splash bottle.

    - It's not in the diretory
    - It's from a firm called 'La Toja'
    - I can't find anything about it online,
    except some deo, which is cheap as trash.

    Thanks!

    Hi.
    I was not aware they made an Eau de Toilette!!!! It was even made in their factory in La Coruņa where I live. It must be a 30 years old bottle what you have there. I use their shower gel which is cheap an amazing, a true Spanish classic from the old days when only a few local houses controlled the market. Where did you get it? I will try to locate a bottle. Thanks for the tip-

    I got it at a Danish fleamarket for 50kr., that's $8.
    So, I guess, by your respons, that I did a good deal?!
    Is it worth anything?!
    Their resent products are very cheap.

    I only know the soaps, which can be purchased anywhere. But the soaps are not that bad...,i did not know the Eau de Toilette
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    If it wasn't as cheap as it is, one could think it's a fake.
    Since nobody knew of its excistence.
    But who would wanna fake a 5 dollar scent to begin with?!

    by selling it on ... that's all!

    I don't think it has any collecting value I am just surprised that I never saw it before. La Toja is a tiny island in the north western part of Spain in the Galician region. The Island itself its basically a summer resort and its two major attractions are a Casino and a Spa. The spa is very old and famous for its spring water rich in minerals. La Toja products capitalized mostly in that particular mineral water properties. Today La Toja belongs to Schwarzkopf & Henkel.

    Cool ... now I know something about it,
    it was quite enigmatic before!
    As I said, I love the smell of it, so it's
    definately a keeper.

    La Toja Eau de Toilette is availabe in some perfume shops en Buenos Aires, I never tried it though: I can attest as to their shaving products. which I love, for their classicism and formality, IMHO. Regarding the bottles being sold right now, they come in gift sets together with soaps and shaving products.

    Jaime B mentioned that there used to be a Magno Eau de Toilette that was, according to his description, amazing, but unfortunately, it has been discontinued.

    I would suggest you to try Magno's shower gel, you will realize that it shares notes in common with YSL's Rive Gauche pour Homme. I use whenever i wear it.

    I love La Toja bathroom and perfume line products and la Toja black soap is a classic. The bottle seems the eau de toilette for men although they sell also the eau de toilette for women with a different etiquette. No further information is giving on the website about the piramide notes. It might be cheap but quality is outstanding.
    Absolutly , this soap is a real classic of lots of spanish houses, and never changes its quality.
