Not being much of a fan of the post-1984 popular designer fragrances - my favorites seem to all have been huge commercial bombs/underdogs: Derby, Commes des Garçons 2 Man, and Ocean Rain are some examples.
By the end of the 80s, the Cool Water craze really scared me out of the designer juice pool for well over a decade.
Anyways, I much prefer niche, and I can't say that I have any regrets. I certainly missed the Ck One craze, big time. I'm not even sure if I even know what it smells like.
