    Default Any Fresh 80's fragrances?

    Aside from Aramis New West, GIT, and Cool water, I'm looking for some non-powerhouse 80's fragrances to sample. Does anyone know of any nice fresh fragrances that came out in the 80's?

    Armani Eau Pour Homme (1984). Can't get any better than this.
    There's also Drakkar Noir (1982).

    Sung homme (sort of a powerhouse among fresh fragrances)
    2nd Armani eau ph, and add Bowling Green as Armani's more lemony cousin.

    Eternity for a fresh green/sweet frag.

    Eau d'Orange Verte -- okay, technically 1979 and it was reformulated in the 90s.

    Lacoste Original

    I am probably in the minority, but I find Fahrenheit rather fresh.

    +1 Eternity for men. Fresh, clean, minty, aromatic lavender kind.

    I second Lacoste Original - not a powerhouse, but very 80s in style and a very fresh, citrusy sandalwood scent.

    Good recommendations. I agree with Sung Homme and Eternity. I also hear that Lacoste is fresh. Photo by Lagerfeld (1990) is also on the cusp of the 80's. I do not agree that Drakkar Noir is fresh, but I can see why people say that. And it is not a powerhouse anymore as the current formulation is pretty weak. Sung Homme may be slightly strong.

    With jasmine and honey quite dominant, Tenere is a bit too animalic/indolic to be considered fresh.

    I find Tenere to be a spicy floral / woody scent - not a fresh one in my opinion. If you have a chance to add it to your collection - I recommend you do.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I found a very cheap price price for a tester online (a legitimate gray market site).
    Also, picked Sung Homme yesterday for a mere $10.00! Extremely strong in the opening, but I definitely get a nice fresh floral vibe in the drydown.

    Good picks. I find Sung Homme nice, crisp and clean.
    I've got an after-shave of Tenere and am on the hunt for an EDT spray. I think Tenere was ahead of it's time.
