As far back as the 16th century it was used to scent leather. It is a masculine fragrance, with a rich, exclusive bouquet of resinous and spicy notes.

When trying this fragrance in the shop in Genova I was captured by it. The shop employee advised me to try it and return back later that day. She was right, the scent kept changing and staying noticable (in mid winter time). I bought it right away. Pleant about it is that it is very distinct but not overweighted. Peau d'Espagne now is my favorite eau de Cologne for afternoon and evening use. Interesting is that even quite a lot of people ask for it for they like it too.
