Antonio Banderas The Golden Secret – Burning the Phases Really Fast

Antonio Banderas The Golden Secret_50ml_EdT

For me, the fragrances developed by Antonio Banderas (produced under an agreement with Puig Beauty, of course!) remain at the moment of Diavolo, the first release and probably one of the most successful, in spite of its obvious reference to Dior’s Fahrenheit.
