    AGUA LAVANDA by PUIG is one huge classic amongst Spanish eau-de-colognes. In fact it instantly became a classic when it first appeared on the Spanish market in 1940. At the time its bottle was Art Deco inspired, tall and thin...

    In 1963 André Ricard created what became an icon of Spanish design. This bottle was inspired, both in colour and shape, in ancient perfume bottles from old Rome and Greece. He then added a most distinctive cap, made out of cedar wood, and this one was fixed to the bottle using natural fibres wax-sealed to the bottom of the bottle. There were later versions of this bottle, such as that completely protected by a "straw-jacket" (see pic 2).

    In 1968, this design was used as the image of another classic eau-de.cologne: Agua Brava (my guess s that the bottle became too expensive for an eau-de-cologne like Agua Lavanda, a much cheaper product) and since then (44 years1) it has been endlessly used for that purpose.
