By the time I was a child, Old Spice and Brut were 'everyman', drug store splash ons. Something Polo has never been.
So the contemporaries of Old Spice and Brut would be Rapport, Blue Stratos, Mandate, Denim, and how could anyone forget Hai Karate?! Pierre Cardin PM just about fits in this group too.
How do I remember these? Because my Dad tried the lot of them (or got them in Christmas gift sets). I'm sure it was this lot that Anchorman was taking the piss out of.
Once he was making better money, my Dad moved up to Department store colognes. Aramis and Paco Rabanne, then Polo when it came out, then Antaeus and Kouros. Quorum and Drakkar Noir would also appeal to a guy like this.

Classics are the scents from the past that you can still find in the shops:
Guy Laroche Drakkar Noir
Davidoff Cool Water
Armani Aqua di Giò
JPG Le Male
and many others...
Paco Rabanne One Million I think it will become a classic.

70s = Paco Rabanne
80s = Kouros
90s = Le Male
00s = 1 Million
So Seanjuan, those Drakkar Noir, One man show , Quorum, Paco Rabanne and Azzaro pH suggestions you got are perfect for your quest, and I may add Fendi Uomo, Ted Lapidus pH and Sung pH.
Everyone is somebody's weirdo.
Oh so many:
All must smells for sure, just frags that once they are in your head you can immediately recognize it from there on after.
“Perfume is like cocktails without the hangover, like chocolate without the calories, like an affair without tears, like a vacation from which you never have to come back.”
Gotta echo Tabac.
Be sure to try out both the edc and edt as they are quite different.
How would Zino fit into this discussion?
