Agua Brava, I have worn this scent since I was 16yo, I am now 55yo, it is still my favorite !
I have been using Agua Brava since I was 18 years old, I am 55 years old now, an army buddy introduced me to it one day in 1976 and have I been using it ever since. Maybe since I am a Spaniard I am prejudiced by the fact that it is a Spanish cologne.
Some who like pine scents apparently like this - I think it is a little harsh, like Polo mixed with Brut. Has some lime citrus when applied, then dries to a more citrus/pine smell. Ladies I sampled did not care for it, so that about ends it for me.

distinctly masculine, set you in the "up" mood. affordable, nicely bottled, no frills.

I got it for my husband, he loves it, mostly I love the smell.

An old favorite from when I lived in Europe, Agua Brava is quintessentially Mediterranean--some initial citurs, but then some woods and bergamot. It seems to work best with individuals with a darker skin.

My husband has been wearing Agua Brava for many years. I used to buy it for him in Spain when I flew for the airlines, but thank goodness now it is available in the US at discount price. The name Puig, a Catalonian one, is pronounced "putch" with a short "u" sound. I know this because Mr. Puigs sons used to travel in first class on the airline I worked for, going to and from Barcelona. I once asked them how to pronounce it correctly. The people from Barcelona are lovely, highly cultivated and very creative. Just ordering the cologne for my husband made me want to go there again and drink the wonderful Spanish "cafe con leche." Please don't make that low fat milk! Adeu! Barbara

I've used Agua Brava for 35 years and like it because it's not similar to others.

I've been using Agua Brava(Puig)since 1975. No regrets. I like it a lot.

Barbara - I so agree. Agua Brava has got to be the sexiest fragrance ever worn by a man. It is so ... masculine! The only thing that has ever come close to it is Serge Lutens' Arabie - impressive but not packing the same punch.
