    Cool Which scents brings you good 80's memories?

    As a hard rock lover, 80-s reminds me glamour. Leather jacket, hair spray mousse, and so. Scents had no shame of being loud even if it could fall in a disaster release. It was just part of youth effusion. I think, by the way the new movie of Tom Cruise called Rock of Ages will try to show that crazyness of 80s also. By now, which scent gives you a imagine that :" oh boy, that years should be (were) great ..."

    Krizia Uomo is the first fragrance that comes to my mind. I was 15 and used to literally bath in it.

    Kouros... I dislike this fragrance on myself, but i tend to love it when my older uncles wear this.

    Kouros and.... Van Gils. When I recently smelled the last one, I had to get used to it again. Too heavy unless very modestly applied, but still great when properly used. Lasts for hours and gets more pleasant every hour. It really takes me back to my younger years.

    Preferred Stock (vintage)
    Polo
    Drakkar
    Eternity
    Escape
    Obsession
    Cool Water

    I think these all came out in the 80s or around that time.

    Chanel pour Monsieur Concentree
    Versace l'Homme
    Armani Eau pour Homme

    ... among others, though I was too young to get to know this age properly, these scents somehow make me think about how this age may not have been really like, far more about how I would perceive an ideal image of this decade.

    Popular men's fragrances (for high school and college age kids, at least) throughout the 80's included, but were not limited to:


    Polo
    Chaps
    Jovan Musk
    Halston Z-14
    Drakkar Noir
    Grey Flannel
    Lagerfeld
    Obsession
    Xeryus
    Fahrenheit (the last year or so of the 80's)


    I'd say that would be my top 10, in no particular order....



    EDIT: I should note that these were what was popular at my high school and university during the decade, and I live in the United States
