    Question the best ever 1980s fragrance ever is?(smell,longevity,sillage)

    My choice would be aramis JHL(1982)-it simply is the heavyweight champ of all 80s fragrances.what would your choice be if you could pick just one?

    Easy for me: Patou Pour Homme.

    I didn't know what I had until I found I couldn't get it again.

    Kouros is like a fragrant black hole that sucked in all energy and matter associated with the 1980s and condensed it into liquid form.

    I like a lot of them, but Kouros is the most distinctive to me.

    SIGNOR VIVARA by Emilio Pucci.
    It was created in 1970 but i used to wear it in the 1980s
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    I'm going to go with Drakkar Noir. It may not be the "best" scent, but it was absolutely ubiquitous and remains a classic. Just like the Star Wars movies weren't "great" movies, they define a decade nonetheless.

    A tie between Patou PH, Kouros and Or Black - or not, since they represent different families.

    I don't know about the best, but out of all the ones I wore back then, the one I enjoyed the most was Fahrenheit...

    Kouros is far away to be the best from the 80s!

    I tend to shy away from the 80s, but I'd have to go with Patou pour Homme.

    I don't know about best, but my favorite from the 80s is Salvador Dali PH. It still holds up wonderfully today, too.

    Polo came out in the '78, just sayin'. I'd go with Zino followed closely by Tiffany for Men and 3rd Man.
    "I exist for myself, and for those to whom my unquenchable thirst for freedom gives everything, but also for everyone, since insofar as I am able to love - I love everyone. Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

    At that time it was the original Paco Rabanne.

    Tough choice to make.

    For me its a tie between Davidoff (1984), Kouros and Rochas' Macassar.
