    Default Which 70s/80s inexpensive "power frag" do you wear most often?

    Some I didn't cite, such as Lomani, because I knew it would not be a BN favorite.

    EDIT: Obvious spelling error: Trussari should be Trussardi.

    Great poll. I'd say Yatagan, although Quorum is a close second and if Zino had been on there, that would have been a contender, too.

    Aramis and Zino (among others) are a bit more expensive, so I didn't include them, and I could only list a maximum of 20, so I decided to go with these (but I did forget One Man Show).

    Yatagan. It's the only inexpensive power frag I wear somewhat regularly. The next most worn for me would be Salvador Dali PH.

    Azzaro; I'm wearing it now!

    I don't know if Aramis and Zino are that expensive. Of your list, I do wear Yatagan. I love and wear Zino too.
    I also had re-purchased (after several years) Azzaro and Montana but gave APH away and want to sell Montana. I'm just not enjoying them as much anymore.

    I think in LT's (and TS's) "guide book," it is said that Passion by Elizabeth Taylor is like Z-17 in drag. I guess that was a mistake and it was supposed to be Z-14, so there's another one to try. LOL.

    I have to say, I don't wear any of the ones that are listed. But I do think Paco Rabanne is an amazing creation.

    I totally agree- Paco is truly a great scent. I'll always own a bottle and wear it. Although I don't personally think it quite has the intensity of a true "powerscent", it is a powerhouse in its hairy-chested attitude and spirit.

    I'm a little surprised Grey Flannel wasn't on there, but it may be more "powerhouse" than "power" scent.

    I never thought of Grey Flannel as a "power frag," perhaps because it is simpler than the others. I'm really surprised, even only several hours later, that nobody chose the Montana red box.

    Ah yes, Giorgio and Giorgio Red have come down in price and are now in the "cheapo" range. Forgot about that too! LOL.

    Good point. "None" should have been an option !

    Default Re: Which 70s/80s inexpensive "power frag" do you wear most often?

    Yatagan on me doesn't behave 'powerfully'. It's almost bashful in its sillage. Smalto is great provided I apply judiciously. Oscar's too thick and dense. Azzaro's too arid. Lapidus' pineapple is too searing. Paco's changed and comes across as harsh these days. Z-14's too flat and smells cheap. Sung's a dense, cheap cloud. Quorum's good, but I seldom reach for it for some reason.

    I am wearing Halston Z-14 today. I love the way that the spicy notes warm up a dry, mossy base. Not a direction that many dry, woody fragrances go in. By the way, I had not really appreciated Z-14's structure until getting Guerlain's Mitsouko and smelling the similarities and the differences. Wonderful.

    Of this list, Z-14 is the one I've worn most historically, However, though I wore Azzaro Pour Homme just yesterday, I have worn Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur most frequently in the recent past.

    Easy, Montana (red box)

    I've got a good handful of fave cheapies new and old, but Montana easily ranks as the most satisfying for me - scent appeal vs cost.

    Default Re: Which 70s/80s inexpensive "power frag" do you wear most often?

    I do waer Azzaro every now and then.

    By far my fav from this time however would be Cool Water, i guess it doesnt suit the power house request

    Z-14 and Yatagan are more or less tied of those listed. I probably wear Zino more often.

    Yatagan of course

    Forgot Bigan too. Another poll is needed, but I'll wait to see which ones get few or no votes, because they can be excluded from the next poll (maximum of 20 choices). In the meantime, go ahead and list the ones you'd like to see in the next poll, so long as they are not very expensive now and are from the 70s or 80s.

    Definitely Yatagan as the result of BN introduction. Used to wear Paco, Aramis, Drakkar, Polo, Jacamo de Jacamo, Z-14, 1-12, and Quorum but no more.

    I wear Azzaro now and then, but it really isn't very powerful on my skin.

  34. #34

    Default Re: Which 70s/80s inexpensive "power frag" do you wear most often?

    i chose De la Renta Pour Lui (vintage version). it's simply amazing. this along with the Ungaro triplets are scents par excellence and a benchmark in perfumery...

    other contenders includes Trussardi Uomo, Paco Rabbane and Montana Ph

    i have sampled the following...

    Oscar Pour Lui
    Lapidus
    Azzaro
    Paco Rabanne
    Trussari Uomo
    Francesco Smalto
    Montana ("red box")
    Yatagan

    Z-14 is in constant rotation with me--the more I wear it the more I remember why I first loved it all those years ago.

    I wear Paco but I can see why Azzaro is so popular...

    Pour Lui. Awesome juice. However, I have to agree with Ruggles. Everytime I wear Paco Rabanne, I am blown away how damn good it is.
