I wanted to start this discussion because I recently purchased a couple old school frags(Tabac EDC and Pino Silvestre) that are just kick ass, and kind of sparked my interest in old school fragrances a little. I am not giving you a number limit and you don't have to put them in order, so just name the ones you love.
Not sure if they count as old school
Also I wanted to tell you that Pino Sylvestre mixes very well with Dirty English so give it a shot next time you feel like mixing something.

its old school , Pre 1990 ... its what you & others pointed out on the Kanon thread
I didn't point that out in any way, lol, I only said (in the Kanon thread) that at this forum you can discuss all kind of frags from aquatics to powerhouses etc. if you want.
There is already such a thread if I am not mistaken so i thought this was about a top of really OLD frags and not all the 80's powerhouses included. Then my list would be completely different by the way.
old school... i would think any fragrance could be old school, as long as it "smells" old school... by the way, my wife describes my "old school" scents as... grampa. maybe that is what earns an "old school" label. grampa. i guess i dont mind smelling like grampa. but she still irks me...
I am mainly a powerhouse guy so yeah I was talking about old school as in masculine but not powerhouse. Which is why I didn't put Aramis in my list above it fits the era, but to me it is a true powerhouse.
