José Antonio Domínguez Banderas, better known to international film fans as Antonio Banderas, is a Spanish actor, director, film producer, and singer. Born in 1960, Banderas had early dreams of becoming a football star until an injury sidelined his career aspirations.
In partnership with the Spanish company Puig, Antonio Banderas launched a fragrance line for men and women in 1997. Prior to his success in the perfume and cologne industry, the Spanish born founder had a prolific career on the big screen as an actor, singer, director, and producer of both American and Spanish films. The brand successfully translates the onscreen persona of sexuality and mystery to the seductive line of scents for both genders.
Spirit Cologne by Antonio Banderas, Spirit is a woodsy and understated cologne for men, ideal for daily wear.
The fragrance is a spicy and warm blend of citrusy notes of lemon and bergamot, and earthy deeper notes of frankincense, cinnamon, amber, neroli, musk, and patchouli.
This fresh and masculine scent made its way into stores in 2004.
The following year, it won the FiFi Award for Fragrance of the Year Men’s Popular Appeal.
