    English Leather! There was this one really cute girl who would make out with any guy wearing English Leather, so it was a natural. Ah, High School.

    I then "graduated" to Polo Green for a bottle, and then Kouros (!) because my best friend had it, and I'd bum a few sprays from him when we'd go out.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    The only thing I wore in high school was something I bought from Pac Sun... some Kirra scent. I had some left and I went to smell it again when I first started getting into fragrances and it smells of pure alcohol now...I had some Adidas aftershave that I thought smelled good too.

    Wore Old Spice Limes in high school ('62 - '66) and it was a thoroughly enjoyed fragrance. I don't think you can buy it now. I went from OS Lime to Bermuda Royall Lymes and then transitioned to Guerlain Imperiale in '67. Yes I was a fragrance fool even back then!

    This got me compliments galore when I was 14-16 at high school!

    Wasn't cheap at the time (or for a teenager), but I got Liz Claiborne Curve when it was launched in '96 and was the only one in school with it. Compliments galore.
    I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!

    Chalk up another one for the original Curve. I've received far more compliments per day with this one than any of the hundreds I've worn since. And it kills me that I can no longer appreciate it like I once did- it never struck me as 'synthetic' or 'fake' in junior high or high school, but that's nearly all I get from it now. I wish there was a higher-quality version that smelled nearly identical. I have (and still like) Fierce as well as Chanel PE, but neither have more than a passing resemblance, despite often being recommended as substitutes. It was my signature as a teen, and all I ever wanted or needed. Then I opened the pandora's box that is the hobby of fragrance, and I don't believe I'll ever have that comfort and satisfaction with a fragrance ever again, although there were/are a few that came close.

    Good grief, those were the days! Bottles of the stuff, dirt cheap at the head shop. Guys used it as car fragrance.

    Jade East, Brut, Canoe, British Sterling, British Sterling Lemon, Jovan Musk and a whole bunch of Avon colognes! The Avons were all in decorative bottles and were really cool! And they even smelled good! I remember one smelled like cinnamon...lol.

    That was a looooong time ago.
