    Default Help with mystery scent from 90s

    I need some help tracking down a fragrance from my childhood.
    When I was little my uncle always wore this cologne that I thought was really amazing. Anyway, I was in sephora the other day, and I smelled one of their sephora brand body washes, and it smelled almost exactly the way he used to smell. I would just ask him, but I havent talked to him since I was a little kid, and it seems awkward to call him up just to ask what cologne he wore almost 15yrs ago...

    Last time I saw him was around 96-98. So the fragrance was proabably released around that time or earlier. He was in his early/mid thirties, if that helps. Ill post the description of the similar sephora fragrance below.


    SEPHORA COLLECTION Riviera Blue Body Collection

    What it is:Bath and body products lightly scented with Sephora's Riviera Blue fragrance.What else you need to know:Book an oceanic retreat with this crisp citrus scent, which is complimented by orris, lavender, sandalwood, and amber. Each product contains deeply hydrating ingredients, such as Aloe Vera and Jojoba, for delectably soft skin.

    Why wouldn't you call him up? Family is family.

    Theres not enough info really to get an idea of this.
    Do you at least recall the bottle/box?

    How did it smell to *your nose*?

    I guess Cool Water would be a good starting point. But who knows? Sounds like any number of aquatics, and how many have smelled this specific body wash. Eau de Grey Flannel (light blue bottle) was released in the late 90s, and has this nice body wash type smell to it, but again, stabbing in the dark.

    Hugo by Hugo Boss? That stuff was everywhre around that time. My uncle wore it and got me a bottle too. It was great smelling stuff. I might just have to go buy another bottle for nostalgia's sake. Give it a sniff.

    Yup. Call him. Use your newfound interest in colognes as an 'icebreaker'.

    Based on the little information given.. Sounds like either Cool Water or Drakkar Noir.

    The problem with giving a list of notes instead of what YOU smell, is that you can have 3 fragrances with the exact same notes, and they can all smell completely different.
