    oddly I wore fragrances in middle school but then I didn't wear anything while in highschool. In middle school I wore cool water and an American Eagle fragrance called Alive. It was actually a really nice fragrance. This thread actually made me look it up to see if I could get my hands on a bottle and its now listed for $120.00 on the bay. lol Goes to show you what a little time can do for a discontinued fragrance even if it was a $20 buy when it was in stores.

    I wore Adidas for a while, but most guys including my brother, wore Drakkar Noir. Polo (original) was going good there for a while, as Polo shirts and Docker boat shoes were in style. I started wearing Aramis right after high school ('86-'91).
    The girls wore either Liz Claiborne, Exclamation, Electric Youth, Love's Baby Soft or Eternity. All that sweet perfume mixed with gallons of hairspray made for pretty unfortunate results...and worst were the one's that smoked. Guys were generally low key, but the girls with they'er blue mascara, black eyeliner and big mall hair jacked-up-to-Jesus: makes an entertaining yearbook.

    Deodorant. Axe when the mood struck. Going out to party or someplace "fancy", a spritz of Roots Uniscent, a discontinued Tommy/CKOne ripoff that was actually pretty nice. It wasn't until my early 20s that I began paying more attention to fragrances - Lacoste Essential and Armani Code were my faves at 20-22.

    Class of '03.

    My HS years were 1989-93. Back then I wore Old Spice, English Leather, Brut, British Sterling and Jovan Sex Appeal. The girls seemed to really like English Leather!

    Looking back I think if only I could have afforded things like Obsession, Pour Monsieur or GIT. I could have been a "contenda"!

    RL Romance
    Givenchy Pi
    Aqua Di Gio
    Davidoff Good Life

    My highschool years were 1998-2002

    By that time, all the guys wanted to wear Hugo, ADG, Eau d'Issey and Le Male

    I however wore a variety of frags, most of whom, I admit, I now perceive as pretty ghastly and tacky: Adidas Classic, Adidas Dynamic, Hattrick aftershave, New Spirit by Oriflame (omg, this was soooooo vapid), Drakkar Noir, Paco Energy, Salvador Dali PH, towards the end of highschool also Chevignon Brand, Boss Bottled, Ungaro III (the latter three being not that bad)

    This looks like an overwhelmingly 20-something thread, but just for historical balance, I wore English Leather exclusively throughout HS and the girls loved it. Of course, they had little else to compare it to in 1974...

    My high school years were 1980-1984.
    I don't really remember putting on cologne to go to school every day. I went to an all boys school, so maybe that was why. Not trying to impress.
    But if I did put something on it would probably have been one of the following:

    Pierre Cardin
    Oleg Cassini for Men by Jovan
    Paco Rabanne
    Chaps by Ralph Lauren
    Polo by Ralph Lauren

    Or maybe some of my Dad's Chanel for Men. Back then you had maybe one major new men's fragrance launch a year...maybe two. The men's fragrance market didn't really explode until I think the late 80's. Of course, now you have five, six, seven launches a year of new stuff for men. And much of it is marketed much younger.

    Fahrenheit by Christian Dior , the original formulation that I still love and long for again . Even my mum says that it always makes her think of me when she smells it !!!

    There was a YSL Jazz too , the bottle was all plastic half white and half black and the atomiser was built in kind of thing , there was no cap - Im not describing it well but I know what I mean . That was a gift from a friend , I didnt like it much but like I said it was a pressie !

    High school was about 3 years ago for me; oh boy my old self wouldn't even know what to say to my current self if I smelt something like Kouros or any of my multiple Oud oils "You spent how much, on these fecal smelling oils?!"

    I'd spray Axe I got from my Grandparents for Christmas maybe once a month.. I thought 'cologne' was gross for some reason.

    I was in high school 1984-1988. During that time I remember wearing Drakkar Noir, Polo, Obsession, Kouros(can't believe it now) and Lauder for Men. That time in the 80s was big for scents..IMHO.

    Nothing regularly, I recall. I may have dabbed some Musk (Jovan) or a bit of 4711. I remember a buddy of mine liking Brut...man that stuff should have been named BRUTAL.

    This has been a good laugh. It really was the Dark Ages before '95/'96 and the explosion of information on the world wide web.

    I found a bottle Guerlain Imperiale and it was my daily frag. until my senior year when I discovered a new Guerlain called Vetiver. It was quite a step up for me then - this was '62-'66.
