If Polo, a non-Eighties scent, can stand in as defining the decade, then let me nominate 1990's Balenciaga Pour Homme as the ultimate Eighties masculine. It's like they took Kouros and asked themselves ''How can we make this more excessive?" and decided to pour on an ocean of smoky, boozy amber.
It's not versatile, it's not my favorite ( that would be Patou PH ), but if I had to nominate one fragrance as '''80s in a bottle'', this would be it. It's absolutely no surprise to me this died out like some ice age megafauna born after its time.
