    Default Choose a Signature/Favorite fragrance launched in your year of birth

    If you were to choose a signature/favorite fragrance launched in the year of your birth, not necessarily a fragrance you currently own, what would it be?

    For me, I would choose L'Eau du Navigateur by L'Artisan (1982) - I actually sampled this it at Barneys a couple months ago, and like it! I never would have guessed it was launched that year.

    Yes, this thread may expose your age.

    Tough choice...suppose I'll go with Fahrenheit by Christian Dior (1988).

    Quite a few releases in 1988...among some others that jumped out at me are Cool Water, Jazz, Garrigue, New West for Him, and Santal Noble.

    I don't think there were any important male fragrance releases in 1977 - it was, however, a memorable year for the ladies: YSL Opium and Oscar de la Renta's Oscar are exactly as old as me.

    I was going to say Cool Water (1988), since I wear it pretty often, but after browsing the Fragrance Directory, I see that Gucci Nobile was launched that year. I blind-bought a bottle of Nobile from the closeout store I worked at for only $40 back in 2005. (Bought it based on the brand only ).

    Only my second bottle of cologne...probably wasn't a wise purchase, being that I may have been the only 16 year-old with Nobile as a signature scent.

    I had a very similar experience as to how I came into possession of Nobile, I bought a 1 oz bottle when I was 17 in order to qualify for some sort of promotion Perfumania was running. I think I got my bottle for $9.99. Had I known what bottles of it would be going for now, I would've cleaned out the shelf
