There is a shop in the old town of Santiago that sells a wide variety of replicated scents. I bought some while there and was going to buy more next trip but...COVID. It is in a cute shop that i think is on a small corner. The scents are in large glass jars on the shelves and the proprietor fills smaller bottles for the customer. Does anyone know the name? Thank you, Shirley

I think it is La Reina de Saba on Rúa da Algalia de Arriba.



They also have a FB account.

Ha, my first thought was this meant replication of the smells of the Camino! I imagined cow dung, body odour and stinky socks 😂😂
I would sign up for the cow pies. In Asturias & Galicia it smelled to me as fresh mown grass and freshly fallen Spring rain. 🤣😂

Shirley -clearly if you’re planning a repeat purchase you were happy with the products. Did you feel that the replicas were close matches to the originals, or just decent products in their own right?

I did buy my wife a replica fragrance product once - and the feedback was far from positive.

I am curious - what are "replicated scents"?


But it is a legal sale. The manufacturers replicate/duplicate the basic formula of a certain scent but with cheaper ( and not always with the same chemical elements ) ingredients.
But it is not counterfeit material like the fake perfumes that customs take in custody.
