    Default Best prototypical Spanish fragrance to try?

    I am looking to experience a prototypical Spanish fragrance for men. Kind of like Aqua de Parma Colonia is to Italian fragrances. Any suggestions?

    Hm... Puig-stuff? Quorum and Sybaris are both very much worth a try.

    A big bottle of Agua Brava & Varon Dandy were always requested by my uncle (to my father), to be brought back from Spain whenever we summered there. He said Varon Dandy reminded him of his childhood in Barcelona. That would be circa 1940s-50s, FWIW.

    most prototypical (I wouldn┤t say the best though): Varon Dandy

    all the Loewe fragances worth a try : para hombre (a classic chipre-herbal)
    esencia ( more refined and still classic style)
    7 ( a very good take on frankincense)

    I find Tuscany per uomo (I know is Italian) , also a very representative take on spanish fragances style.
