Agua Lavanda opens with a huge, natural-smelling lavender and little bit of bergamot and dries down very soapy. It's a basic lavender soap bomb with that fresh-out-of-the-shower smell. It's relaxing, makes for a very good bedtime scent. While undoubtedly old school, the lack of powderiness steers it away from an excessive gentlemanly vibe.

There is no mention of concentration on the box of this late 70s/early 80s glass bottle. It doesn't project well. Lasts less than 4 hours, and this is the version *with* oakmoss.

Masculinity Level: This was Frank Sinatra's signature scent throughout the 1940s and 1950s, but to me he's too butch for this. Instead I'll go with Walter White, inoffensive chemistry teacher.

This review references the short, green, glass bottle pictured above.
I have enjoyed wearing this lavender cologne for many years. It is a no-nonsense lavender, sans frills, but that should not be interpreted as uninteresting or boring. On the contrary, ALP is one of THE most satisfying lavender fragrances I have ever used; and I have tried quite a few. Perfect office scent. Perfect for an outdoor event. Perfect if you want to smell great, but not challenge anyone else's olfactory senses.
I choose to decant the juice from the splash bottle into a small 5ml atomizer. Sillage is small to moderate; projection is moderate and the longevity is 4-6 hours. It's been long-discontinued, so availability is limited and a 200ml bottle will test your wallet. I don't like to categorize scents by age-range, but this is scent more suited for a mature gentleman. Women certainly could wear it too.
If you are fan of lavender, it may be worth searching for a bottle, before they are gone forever.

Very short lived fragrance, but it's still a thumbs up for me. I love this simple lavender blast of freshness! One of the best shower and after shave/body splash combo's out there if you buy the shower gel and cologne. Both can be had for a song, and they will cheer you up immensely for an hour or two...then they'll be gone. BUT, that hour or two is just so enjoyable!

Pleasant thin after shave, dirt cheap (in large bottle) splash. I get a nice smooth lavender from this and very little else. If you splash this on liberally it will project and hold up for at least an hour and then fade off into a nice simple skin and clothing scent. So cheap that its useful for many other general scenting purposes too. Recommended to try if this sort of product work for you.

I own Agua Lavanda in the fluted columnar bottle with a green cap and sprayer. It is essentially an EDT concentration, so I have none of the longevity woes some lament. This is one of my go-to scents in spring and summer. A near soliflore, it's probably my favorite straight-up lavender.

Agua Lavanda Puig seems -- not surprisingly -- almost entirely lavender, with an slight undertone of spice, likely to be the sage and cedarwood. The scent is elegant and simple, understated when compared to more modern compositions, The bite of spice keeps it, IMHO, from seeming too barber-shop-like or grandfatherly. I located a 2010 posting on SinatraFamily.Com by Frank Sinatra's daughter Nancy confirming that Agua Lavanda Puig was indeed Ol' Blue Eyes' go-to fragrance for many years.

Many other posters stated that the glass green bottle is more intense than the tall plastic bottle of shower gel. Accordingly I purchased the 100 EdC in the classic green glass bottle (from La Tienda, a purveyor of all-things Spanish) for about $20. JFYI, the glass bottle does not have an atomizer/sprayer. Rather it has an open neck, as more common with bottles of splash. So I've purchased one of those small plastic travel bottle sprayers to use to spritz on the product.

While I find this a wonderful scent, I am sorry to report it has zero sillage, instead clinging very close to the body. Further it is very weak in terms of endurance … after an hour, it's gone. That's in keeping with EdC being just one step above splash in concentration, and below EdT.

If this fragrance was available in EdT or stronger … and if it had more endurance … it would easily become my daily go-to frag. Even with its shortcomings, just the scent of it -- and the endorsement of it by The Chairman of the Board -- means you ought have a bottle in your inventory.
