    In HS I was pretty loyal to Polo and Polo Crest. I also had a bottle of Drakkar. In fact come to think of it I have bottles of these three still today. (hides).

    Another dude I went to school with always smelled amazing and I was too embarrassed to ask him what it was. Years later I've come to the decision that it was Azzaro Pour Homme or Tuscany. Both share similarities, but I wish I knew which one it was. I am inclined to think Azzaro as it was more mainstream and popular.

    Any of those scents definitely take me back.

    I got asked to the Reverse Dance (girls ask guys) and I wanted to impress...

    After finding the loudest cardigan and sheerest Rayon golden pants, I hosed myself down with...

    PREFERRED STOCK.

    It was a splash on bottle, so I probably used at least 2 oz. before getting into the car with my Dad, who scolded me for being so irresponsible with my lawn mowing money. He says " You should have just used my Canoe, it's good enough for your mother."

    I wish the new stuff smelled the same, but I bet if I looked around Mom's house, I'd probably find that old cardigan (worn once) and find remnants of that night.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned Giorgio BH yet! I went through three large bottles of this stuff in the mid to late 80's as an undergrad/grad student. And this was when it went for $75 a pop.

    In h.s. I often wore the original Oscar de la Renta* and Polo (of course!).

    P.

    *That should be Oleg Cassini.

    Opium was not around during the 80's, it was released in 1995.

    Polo, Drakkar Noir, Tuscany, and Fendi Oomo were probably the only fragrances I wore in the 80s. These scents remind me of The Replacements and Husker Du.

    No dude, you are wrong, it was indeed around during the 80's :

    http://www.basenotes.net/ID10213395.html

    Opium pour Homme was released in 1995, but that is not the scent JDBIII was talking about.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Look at the title of this sub-forum:

    MALE Fragrance Discussion

    I know that the "FEMALE" version was around during the 80's, but that's for a different forum (http://www.basenotes.net/forums/21-F...nce-Discussion).

    And I don't care what your or anyone else's sexual orientation is or if someone likes to dress in women's lingerie and wear lipstick.....this is still the MALE fragrance discussion area.

    I was referring to the original Opium. I wouldn't be caught dead wearing Opium Pour Homme.

    First, I just want to say that I should not have said "...you are wrong". I should have put it more politely than that ( as in, "I feel you are mistaken" or something along those lines).

    Second, it is pretty much a norm here to talk about female scents. Guys wear Habanita, Opium, classic Guerlain femmes.....etc. I myself enjoy Gres Cabaret EDP. Other favs of mine are L'air de Rein and SMN Opoponax. Anyways, you get the gist.....

    Yeah, it is a male fragrance forum. But that includes fragrances worn by males. Plus there are many fragrances listed as unisex to complicate things. Even then, women come here to talk about femmes they wear as well, and its all good. It adds alot to the threads. I would easily say the brightest minds here are from the Female board.

    Last, lingerie/lipstick/orientation have nothing to do with anything here. Its a fragrance forum. As well, if we are comparing, it is essentially an apples to orange comparrision. This debate is essentially deja-vu ( seems to happen every 3 months).
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.
