About this deal

Here comes the wannabe poetic bit : Think of a black-haired, sun-browned Spanish farmer getting showered and shaved ready for a summer evening out with his girlfriend. Base notes of Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver and Moss make this a truly classic and masculine fragrance. Honestly, every time I holiday there I fall in love with four or five masculines for their complexity and unashamed take on what male perfumery should be. I'd love to try the vintage version sometime too to see if the (presumably real) oakmoss would come through. I had a newer bottle, and while decent, had been hollowed out in its dry down, while with this version, the herbs have been fixed to the base by oakmoss and vetiver.

The first five minutes smell more like a herbal chemical warfare with a nostril-bewildering mess of notes. It's amazing the way juices used to smell and even if the bottle has been dry for donkeys, I can still get a very strong whiff of pine and oakmoss. In addition, as we give you the option to choose what best suits your needs from several sellers, you have the power to decide so you can make your purchase as you wish. sometimes i spray this on the clothes and Yatagan on myself; great smelling woody and not overwhelming fragrance. So I'm not wearing the current concept, since I don't have oak moss, leather, and musk, and my "Agua Brava" is bespoke.I've liked this fragrance for more than 30 years, when I first bought some whilst on holiday in Spain. I like the newer version Agua Brava BRAVE which is in green bottle it is not in fragrantica database but it has got very peculiar aromatic/spicy fragrance.

I'd also suggest Agua Brava more for colder weather use, which makes it SLIGHTLY less versatile than the freshness of Pino. It is not the kind of scent that will draw admiration by most, but it did bring a compliment once when I thought it was gone. Side-by-side, four hours after applying, I have to literally bury my nose in the AB to smell it where I can easily still smell the herbal pine-y-ness of Pino at arms length. Launched in 1968 Agua Brava for men is a classic Spanish cologne brought to you from the famous Spanish fashion house of Antonio Puig.Instead, this is something I would wear as an aftershave-type cologne, or as a pick-me-up when I get up in the morning to start my day, doing errands until I hit the shower. Finally it will close with some base notes of vetiver, musk, sandalwood, patchouli, oak moss and leather. From 1968 until tomorrow, Puig continues to offer (on a leather plate) a pine-lavander-sandal treasure-juice. It has an old-school quality of mostly natural ingredients, and is a great way to re-visit the 60's on a less-traveled road (Brut, English Leather and several others being the more commonly traveled paths).

New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging . I just love its clean woody fragrance - many colognes/aftershave lotions have come and gone, this one remains . I do understand the parallels that are made between Agua Brava and Pino original, but the two are very different beasts in my opinion. Now I decided I need no more fragrances as my time of trying different colognes and aftershaves have just gone; I keep only those fragrances that I really love and wear YATAGAN, ARAMIS(original), QUORUM, AGUA BRAVA, BOGART(signature) and BRUMMEL are my choice and I have no intention of changing as I find in these 6 fragrances that they suit and mix perfectly with my character and personality, so I do not need different ones anymore. then many years has pass (something like 30) Agua Brava was discontinued here in México; and yesterday i recived it in my home (from Germany).

However, like a lot of cheaper Cologne the smell doesn't last you need to spend more for that I'm afraid. Being a fan of (almost) all the innovative mediterranean fragrances (from D's Cool Water to Annick Goutal's Sables and beyond), I can not stand to the Puig's Agua Brava. it´s true; in deep on my soul, i think that agua Brava makes me a Fragance Collector and lover even when i didn´t konw it.

but I think this cologne has its uniqueness, and is not for everyone but is totally masculine and I still would remember its notes if I come across with someone wearing it. This fragrance is in the same mould as that other well known Antonio Puig fragrance 'Quorum' in that there is no sweetness to it at all and it's as dry and herbal as it is possible to be. Its fresh and herbal smell make it a perfect ally for the daytime, whether in the office or for any event sunlight.I get a little bit of something like Floris Elite and something else that I cant place my finger on.
