So buy something that screams '80s without apology. And make it a genuine powerhouse; no pretenders allowed. Some possibilities:
• Quorum -- Nothing I know smells close. It's certainly not like any current releases. I went through my 20s with it and still like it, but a younger crowd will recognize it as "vintage," if not dated. I think of it as pleasant but formal, though.
• Bijan -- Widely despised here. I love it. Worn confidently and lightly, not lethally, it will adapt to your attitude: edgy, mysterious, in-your-face, strong and silent. Make it work and wear it proudly.
• Antaeus -- With a few minutes to quiet down after application, this becomes a truly beautiful scent. Romantic in any sense of the word. If you buy it and don't like it, store it carefully for a few years. Some day you will appreciate this one.
• Obsession -- What could be more nostalgic than smelling likes Mom's kitchen while she baked cookies?
My two cents.
