    Default 80s/ vintage recommendations

    I've recently found a local perfume shop in Singapore ( not Jasina) that sort of specialise in 80s and even older stuff. I'm planning on up to 4 or 5 bottles of purchase for next month as the prices are very reasonable ( even if I buy 5 bottles it will still cost me less than a bottle of Creed). Keeping in mind that I already own Kouros, antaeus, one man show, furyo, v&r ph & Pacco ph, please recommend me the ones that I should not miss out. Right now I'm considering Krizia Moods, Dali ph and quorum and a few others. All suggestions welcome as long as older than 90s stuff.

    My personal favorites from that era are:

    - Santos (1981) by Cartier (Get the Concentrée version if you can)
    - Bel Ami (1986) by Hermès
    - Number 3 / Le 3me Homme / The Third Man (1985) by Caron
    - JHL (1982) by Aramis

    From the 70's (you said they have older stuff too) I would check out:

    - Yatagan (1976) by Caron
    - Givenchy Gentleman (1974) by Givenchy

    I've always been a fan of Lagerfeld (1978), but I haven't owned it in a while. It might be called Lagerfeld Classic or something like that now.
