    I think I am just going to order a rubber stamp so I can answer all my posts with:

    Giorgio for Men (1984)

    Polo came out in 1978. At the time, I thought of it as the quintessential 80s fragrance. Today, my favorites of that era are Calvin (1981), Bois du Portgual (1987) and Green Irish Tweed (1985). Others of note:

    Kouros (1981)
    Farenheit (1988)
    New York (1989)
    Obsession (1986)
    Tuscany (1984)
    Sung Homme (1988)
    Eternity (1989)
    No. 88 (1981)
    Sex Panther by Odeon (1980)
    Montana Parfum d'Homme (1989)
    KL Homme (1986)
    Coolwater (1988)
    Jacomo (1980)
    Antaeus (1981)
    Drakkar Noir (1982)
    Eau d'Hadrien (1981)
    Giorgio for Men (1984)
    New West (1988)

    and lots more I'm sure I am forgetting.

    Havana actually came out in 1994. Just seems like a bold 80s frag.

    But if you are making me pick just one, I will have to agree with my friend TwoRoads and say Giorgio for Men.

    CK Obsession for men, Dior Fahrenheit and Lacoste Original are the best 80's scents, even if the fragrance that makes me think about this perioud is Drakkar Noir.
    I don't like Drakkar so much, its smell was copied by a lot of cheap shower gel, but I remember it was very popular in that perioud.

    My hatred for Drakkar stems not from its scent but because two girlfriends I had tried to get me to wear it because they liked it on earlier boyfriends.

    Fahrenheit. Way ahead of its time.
    Green Irish Tweed. Not ahead of its time. Instead, GIT is timeless.
    Eternity. Such a classic.
    Obsession. I'd love to see this modernized and relaunched. Or not. CK would probably eff it up.
    Polo - but that's from the late 70's, though it really was huge through the 80s. I think Polo should be updated (returned to its roots, rather than the shell of a scent it currently is), marketed in a very modern way and relaunched.
