The question is, if you smell it on someone, will you associate it with the seventies?
The answer is no. I will not associate it with the seventies if I smell it on someone.
If you wouldn't know the name of this scent, and you would smell it on some person, would you think it is dated?
The answer is no. I would not think the smell dated if I smelled it on someone and didn't know what the name of the scent was or which scent it was.
This is not really about the name of the botle, looks or anything.
It's not even about the idea in general.
It's about what you detect with the nose people.
Yup, it is, and sometimes threads are conversations on our thoughts about a scent. Sometimes the point of many comments on a thread is that it is more what you, JBL, detect with YOUR nose. No matter how much you want the answers provided, the best answer members can give you--the one that will serve you the very best--is that you have to smell and find the answer yourself.
So far the reactions are mixed.
This will need good testing for sure...
I hope you like it! I bet if you give it four straight days of wearing you'll see yourself in it from then on and it will feel like you. That's often the way it has been for me with many scents. I hope the testing is fun too!
