    Date's spot on. I stopped wearing it when one of my sister's friends referred to it as "Lemon Pledge."

    When I wore this fragrance I was known as "cologne guy" Strangely at the time I really liked sport fragrances, so I am not sure why I was drawn to this scent. Oh wait, it was dirt cheap at the pharmacy.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Besides the funny replies, Drakkar Noir isnt dated, only watered down.
    Perfect for summer, i like this scent very much, but isnt strong as i read (maybe the vintages, not the current one)

    I wouldn't say it's dated, but it brings back such strong memories of that era. . . We would all be meeting in a bar for a night out, and one guy would have bathed in the stuff. Any complaint would be met by the assertion that "girls like it," as if there was something wrong with the rest of us.

    That the guys that doused themselves in it looked down guys that doused themselves in Axe/Lynx only made it so much funnier.

    There are, of course, far, far worse scents. I'd give it a solid four out of five stars. I'll get hated for this, but I always had it down as a more refined Quorum.

    Not only funny, but spot on. I never understood the appeal of this scent. It smells like a dated/drab old man cologne, but that's just IMHO.

    I find it works best in summer with a light to medium application. Again this is only a bad one if over applied.

    Any season, mainly colder seasons though

    I only have a little of Drakkar Noir After Shave left, and nowadays prefer the subtler Drakkar (1972).

    It's one of my favourite scents so I guess I'm a bit biased but IMO you could wear it during/in pretty much any season/place.

    It's the ultimate "cologne guy" fragrance, bar none. You WILL get noticed wearing this.

    Perhaps I should reconsider. . . but, um, no, not really. . . I have reputation to uphold, you know. Even "Cologne Guys" have standards.

    When my sister's hott hott friend called it "Lemon Pledge" I was put off it for life. I was in my teens at that time, and if you'd seen this woman you'd most certainly understand where I'm coming from here. . . sigh. . .

    Currently, it’s in my rotation from late winter to early spring (40-55 degrees).
    For those about to stink, I salute you!
