    Default Antonio Banderas The Golden Secret.

    THE GOLDEN SECRET for men was launched by the designer house of ANTONIO BANDERAS in 2011. This scent possesses a blend of green apple liqueur, pepper, cumin, nutmeg, cedar, amber and leather.

    Does anyone have this and what are your impressions? Seems to be a seller in Brazil.

    The golden secret uses Antonio Banderas' urine for the middle notes. Now the secret is out...

    I purchased The Golden Secret from Walgreens blind. I gave it a chance because it was only $13 for a 1 OZ. bottle and Antonio Banderas scents are usually decent. This is an exact duplication of Paco Rabanne 1 Million. It is not as strong and in your face as 1 Million. I love this fragrance.To me this is a much better deal. You get a great fragrance for a decent price. If you like 1Million or sweet fragrances in general I would definitely go for this. It starts of with a blast of apple liquor. Longevity is average.

    For Antonio Banderas, not bad. In general, I'll pass -- not bad, just nothing noteworthy.

    This frag is GREAT! Its very smooth, pretty sweet, dark and rich. Its an apple liquer that blends in well with a smooth leathery and a bit peppery base. My gf's fav.

    Fell in love with this at Walgreen's and bought it for my husband. Not expensive but to me smells as good if not better then some of the more expensive scents. As a female I find this a wonderful scent for men.

    By the way: Are derogatory cheap shot comments about Antonio Banderas really necessary when discussing a fragrance? Are we interested in fragrance or personalities? Me, I like to talk about fragrance.
