    Default Famous old "Parera" Perfumes (1965-1975).... anyone knows?

    Found (but not bought) an old batch of "Parera" perfumes, mostly "Brando", "Varon Dandy", and "Prime Minister", all bottles produced before 1975, at first smell look like the Triumph of Oakmoss and other now-banned aromes. Anyone tried? Opinions?

    Out of curiosity, where were these made - Spain, Italy?

    I would buy them all!

    I don't have any direct experience with the ones you listed, but there are some older threads discussing Parera fragrances, specifically Varon Dandy.

    What I do own are three 100ml bottles of Crown Pour Homme by Parera. I think these are later than the ones you described, probably from the '80s. Crown is definitely old style, an animalic mossy leather, lusty and gutsy. I'd be willing to take a chance on any older Parera fragrances .

    Mine state "Made, bottled and packaged in Barcelona, Spain by Perfumeria Parera S.A."

    Just bumping this thread in hopes of others commenting on various Parera frags. I've uploaded some photos of Crown in case anyone is interested. I noticed the sticker on the bottom was 55 SAR, or about $14. I probably paid about $10.
