    1980s, closely followed by before 1950 and post-2000

    I like the transparency and subtleness of fragrances created in the early 2000's. The CDG Incense, new vetivers, woods, dirty rose fragrances, Frederic Malle, Le Labo, Comme des Garcon, The Different Co. L' Artisan, etc. All good.

    60s and then 80s

    I voted 'before 1950'. Not that I have lots of those perfumes in my collection, but because they excite me the most. Just seeing an old Guerlain bottle makes my heart beat faster. Ahhh...

    Most of my favourites pre-date the 1950s.

    I'm leaning towards 80s but there are so many I haven't tried from all dates, it might not be fair.

    I am begining to really love vintage extraits but every decade has some amazing scents.

    I was actually curious so I went back and broke it down by decade as to which ones I own

    70s: 5
    80s: 10
    90s: 30
    00s: 36
    10s: 3

    Even though numerically I would have to conclude the 00s, considering I prefer the offerings I have from the 90s over the 00s, I will go with that

    I'm partial to frags of the 60's, or pre 90's in general.

    The era preceding the EU IFRA complicity that has effectively destroyed modern perfumery while at the same time enabling the major fragrance companies to sell less for more

    Legends from Guerlain and Chanel were pre 1950s creations. I guess that would be my pick.
