And, wonderful memories they were, DanielPlainview!
I, too, grew up during the 80's and early 90's. Drakkar Noir was one of THE scents that was there on so many fun, crazy, and wild nights of adolescence! While it has different associations for different people, it was (and still is) a great scent that is entirely wearable and brings compliments today. For people who remember back then, they step back into an olfactory time warp as well and conversations open up!
To all the members of this thread - understand that this scent was a sexually-charged, deep composition of masculinity that was there for MANY of us in our youth and teenage years (as well as into college). One of the true 'panty-droppers' of my generation...and, after buying the reformulation recently (which I find very wearable and good) - I pursued Vintage Drakkar Noir and love to dab some on in a layered wearing. Awesome juice and amazing bravado that swirls around you in a full wearing.
Nostalgic to some, but is there anything wrong with enjoying and remembering some of the best days in our lives (and definitive moments in our youth and high school years) through a scent? It smells better than so many scents out there today...and, it is STILL a top-seller worldwide for good reason. By definition, a true classic.

I remember I liked it a lot, but this was decades ago and I have never felt its smell again. I must order a sample and check if my feelings are still the same.
