    Talking Fragrances released the year you were born...

    Was browsing through the directory, and noticed that I don't own one fragrance that was released the year of my birth...although two greats came out: Eau d'Orange Verte and Nahema (1979 btw).

    Anyone else have a bottle of their own personal vintage?

    Cool Water and Fahrenheit from 1988. I don't own either, although Chez Bond is broke from CW's mold.

    On't own a fragrance from 1987, although I've sampled Bois du Portugal by Creed, which is from 1987.

    I'd like some Magie Noir from 1978.

    I don't own any scent from by birth year (1983) either, but would love to own Trussardi Uomo, released during the very same year.

    I don't own any from my birth year either (1970). Although Equipage by Hermes has been on my to-buy list for a while now.

    We did a thread like this on the ladies' side. I'm with Griff, and I plan to buy a bottle of Poivre for my 55th birthday in October. It is gorgeous! If you like carnation and pepper, try it. Griff, do you have a preference for one concentration or the other?

    Royall Lyme by Royall Lyme of Bermuda (1957). Oddly enough, I was born in that year, then moved to Bermuda at the age of 3 months. So the scent was concocted a few miles from where I was living at the time.
    A linear lime smell that is refreshing but does not last very long. My father died a long time ago - I wonder if he ever wore this stuff?

    I have a decant of Nino Cerruti and Un Homme by Charles Jourdan. Both of which are okay but I really do prefer the more modern perfumes.

    I own Torero Spanisch Juchten by Patrizierhaus (Koln Rh.).

    It's the only one introduced in the year of my birth. Johannes Gutenberg was a childhood classmate.

    A lot of stuff I've never heard of, of course (it was soooo long ago); but three notable ones:

    Carven Ma Griffe, a true classic green floral in its original formulation;

    Jean Patou L'Heure Attendue, a beautiful scent released to celebrate the end of the terrible war; and

    Victor Silvestre (for men, unlike the above-mentioned two), that piney-fresh wonder that breathed new life into the loony old saw that "girls smell like flowers; boys smell like trees."

    The year, by the way, was 1946 — the war that had just ended was the Second World War. (Coughs into his fist.)

    Well, there were a few great women's sents launched in my birth year (Bal a Versailles and Chant d'Aromes) but the only masculine from 1962 is Royall Bay Rhum. I'll wear it tomorrow as my SOTD.

    Man, I'm lucky.. 1981? C&S No. 88 and Neroli (two faves).

    We were born the same year (1965)....but I own Habit Rouge EDC. I can't imagine not having a bottle of this, even if it weren't born the same year as me!
