Spanish luxury house, Loewe, has completely won me over in the last couple of years.
From their handcrafted leather handbags to their beautifully constructed clothes, I just want to wrap myself in everything Loewe.
That dream is becoming more of a reality with the expansion of Loewe Perfumes.
With a variety of scents for men and women, Loewe has characterized the collection into seven fragrance families for women; Solo, Aire, Aura, Agua, 001, Paula's Ibiza, and Un Paseo Por Madrid (which translates into "A Walk Through Madrid"). And six fragrance families for men; Solo, Loewe 7, Pour Homme, Esencia, 001, and Agua.
In this post, we'll be reviewing four Loewe fragrances - 001 and Agua, for men and women.

LOEWE 001 is a family of fragrances inspired by new beginnings and early morning light capturing the essence of the morning after a couple has spent the night together. 001 are fragrances to share and be worn together or alone.
Fresh and contemporary, LOEWE 001 Woman combines notes of musk, linen, and pink peony.
The top notes include bright and sparkling, fresh citrus with bergamot, and tangerine. The heart has Egyptian jasmine with a touch of clean linen accompanied by sandalwood to warm up the scent. The modern heart feels fresh, floral, and fruity, making this scent truly unique.
LOEWE 001 Woman is a gourmand scent. The perfume comes encapsulated by a clean, translucent glass block-shaped flask in a shade of pale yellow topped with a wooden cap.
Top Notes: Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Tangerine.
Heart Notes: Sandalwood, Egyptian Jasmine, Linen Chord.
Base Notes: Musk, Vanilla, Amber.
LOEWE 001 Man is a woody, spicy fragrance characterized by the elegance of lavender at the heart and the strength of musk at the base notes.
Still, 001 Man feels fresh and energetic due to the Sicilian lemon and lime, balanced by the softness of the orange flower and a hint of tonka bean making this one of my favourite Loewe scents.
LOEWE 001 Man combines notes of musk, sandalwood, and lavender. The scent comes encapsulated by a clean, translucent glass block-shaped flask topped with a wooden cap.
Top Notes: Sicilian Lemon, Lime, Orange Blossom.
Heart Notes: Red Pepper, Ceylan Cinnamon, Lavender.
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Musk, Tonka Bean.
Agua is a family of fragrances by Loewe inspired by water. (Agua means water in Spanish.)
Agua Ella (for Her) is a feminine and dynamic fragrance that combines notes of lemon, rose, and waterlily.
The top note of lemon comes through but it doesn't feel citrusy. It's rounded off by the heart notes of pineapple (which comes through subtly), complemented by green apple, and cassis which makes this scent feel sparkling and fresh.
Sandalwood and cedar are at the base. They ground Agua Ella, making it a chic and sophisticated fragrance that's easy to wear for both day and night.
While normally I'm drawn to warmer scents, Agua Ella has to be my personal favourites of the four Loewe scents featured in this post.
LOEWE Agua Ella comes encapsulated in a translucent glass flask in natural shade of pink topped with a wooden cap.
Top Notes: Kumquat, Italian Lemon, Italian Bergamot, Passion Fruit.
Heart Notes: Bourbon Pepper, Rose Petals, Water Lily.
Base Notes: Sandalwood from Mysore, Atlas Cedar, Musk.
LOEWE Agua Él (for Him) combines notes of grapefruit, green apple, and pineapple – an ingredient that lends a tropical touch, however, I find Él to be more refreshing and clean than tropical, which typically makes me think of summer scents such as coconut and hibiscus.
Él translates into Him in Spanish and yet this scent isn't overly masculine in the traditional sense. The beauty of Loewe scents is that they can be worn together and layered regardless of gender.
LOEWE Agua Él comes encapsulated in a translucent glass flask in a cool shade of blue topped with a wooden cap.
Top Notes: Japanese Yuzu, Italian Bergamot, Tangerine, Pink Grapefruit.
Heart Notes: Pineapple from Brazil, Spring Water, Green Apple, Cassis.
Base Notes: Sandalwood from Mysore, Atlas Cedar, Olm Oak Moss, Musk.
Now that I’ve had the change to experience some of Loewe’s perfumes for myself, I can say with full honesty that I’m dying to get my hands on their home fragrances and candles next.
LOEWE perfumes can be found at selected Holt Renfrew and holtrenfrew.com starting at $110-$205.
