    Question Heno/Agua de Pravia........is it masculine or feminine? Bnotes says M, ebayers say W.....?

    So what is it male, female or UNI?

    Since we're at it, even though I am having a heck of a time finding it, Agua Lavanda?
    M, W or Unisex?

    Heno de Pravia, Agua de Pravia and Lavanda Puig are all unisex.

    Heno has a distinctive woody / oakmoss note, Agua is a typical Eau de Cologne (neroli / orange dominant top notes) and Lavanda is what its name says, lavender leaning towards its masculine kind.

    Thanks for your input, the only Heno de Pravia I can find is on ebay and all of the edts are listed for women.

    Don't pay attention to it: as a matter if fact, Heno's brandname tagline is "The aroma of my home", so it was intended to be used by every member of the family. Now, the doedorant has a marked femenine character.

    Agua de Pravia is as femenine as Jean Marie Farina Extra Vielle can be - you get the idea.

    And Lavanda, well, women can use it, but it lacks the marked floral notes typical of femenine lavender scents.

    I think that it must be because those brands are not popular beyond Spain and Latin America.

    I never really thought about a gender designation with Heno de Pravia. I think of it as truly unisex - super clean citrus and beeswax. I don't think of something like that as either masculine or feminine smelling. It just smells really good. I wear it.

    Agua Lavanda is usually marketed to men. I think of it as more masculine simply because it approaches fougere territory. If there was coumarin in the base, you'd have a classical fougere with Agua Lavanda. Great frag, BTW.

    Any fragrance that should not be worn in public, should be worn in public.
