    Default Fave scents you wore in the 90's? Least fave you smelled? Male or female!

    So, any that you loved to wear during that decade? Some you still wear?

    Mine was Poison and Guess Original perfume, both bombs!. Also, Tuscany Per Donna by EL was a fave, still is along with the previously mentioned. Also loved Polo Original(1978) in the green bottle for men and Aspen? Lol.

    Well, I was still wearing perfumes from the 80s and earlier during the 90s (Coco, K de Krizia, La Perla and Gucci No3 were in constant rotation) but as far as favorite new perfumes of the 90s, mine were/are -

    Dune - my very favorite all-around 90s fragrance
    8e Jour - and nobody else I knew had even heard of it
    Angel - of course
    Safari - and I collected all the ancillary products in those gorgeous cut-glass containers
    So Pretty - my favorite romantic/date perfume
    Gio - the only one I don't wear anymore, but I went through three or four bottles of this between about '93-'95, then suddenly got sick of it and I haven't worn it since.

    I never liked CK One either, kalli, and I can even remember being slightly annoyed at the idea of a unisex fragrance, lol! I was honestly confused as to why any girl would want to use the same fragrance as her boyfriend, but especially vice-versa!
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Yes, I was very annoyed at CK One, very annoyed! I just didn't get it. But never became a fan of it, maybe I am still a little annoyed! In fact, I think I am, lol. Whenever I hear 'CK One' or see the bottle it's annoying to me still. lol. Seems like that one was worn so much by so many people everywhere I went, which was also, really annoying! lol.

    Tabu and Timeless, my old standbys. Discovered Knowing and Baryshikov and wore them a lot. As others have noted, I still love all these and wear them often.

    Dolce Vita, Dune, Faubourg, Bulgari Black, Le Feu D'Issey, original Mania, Theorema and Yvresse are my favourites from the 90's. I still have them all, except for Dune.

    Never liked CK One and Escape. And ta-da!!! Le Male - the fatty fleur d'orange/vanilla/tonka bean note makes me nauseous...

    You are better off not knowing that one. ;-) Actually it has more than its share of supporters, but it is very powdery and I dislike powdery scents.

    Like Evangeline I wore my 80s fragrances more than anything (and also my 70s frags), but the 90s scents -- or scents that I first encountered in the 90s and ended up wearing -- included:

    Perry Ellis 360 (which I soon grew to DETEST)
    Alfred Sung (which I soon grew to DETEST)
    Fendi (which I soon grew to DETEST -- notice a theme here?)
    The Body Shop Dewberry ( . . . )
    Unter den Linden -- which I adored, and which was shortly discontinued forever and ever

    Scents I never warmed up to
    Gucci anything -- though I now like Gucci Rush
    Calvin Klein anything -- I only loved their original Calvin Klein for Women and Calvin Klein for men, released in the late 70s

    My first frag was Gravity, cost $8-it was the only fragrance that I wore since it was the only one I owned. All my friends that were girls loved it, I thought it was ok, but I wore it for the girls. Now, when I smell it, I don't like it, but there are a lot of good memories attached to it. Funny stuff this fragrance stuff.

    Wore in the 90s? Dune which is still a great love. Tuscany pour Donna which I can no longer find in the UK. Il Bacio disappeared. Givenchy III and Ivoire de Balmain I still love floral chypres as you all know. Aromatics Elixir more chypre! Wrappings herbal and comforting.

    90s scent I dislike L'Eau D'Issey, CKOne and anything "aquatic". Calone gives me a nauseous headache

    OMG the ENTIRE DECADE smelled like CKOne. EVERYONE wore it, which has to mean there was some type of subliminal advertising going on because how THAT MANY people thought that crap actually smelled GOOD is something I will NEVER UNDERSTAND.

    This made me LOL. Haha! So true! It was all about CK One and anything Tommy Hillfinger. Ya, I would call it Hillfinger and I hated ALL things Tommy! Tommy sucked, still does, lol. Why is TH anything still around? Haha.

    I did like CK Eternity a bit back then for a SHORT while..that was another one every guy seemed to wear. I've only really liked Euphoria and Forbidden Euphoria by CK, those are good scents.
