    My signature scent in the 1980s was JC Coriandre.

    I can only wear it infrequently now-- and lightly-- but it's loaded with memories.

    Cool Re: Fellow old farts: what did you wear in the 80s?

    Hey! I resemble--I mean I resent that characterization!

    Almost all the powerhouses, and I rejoiced in my amazingly sophisticated taste by wearing out of fashion 'vintage' brews, like Aramis or Devin

    Cheers,

    Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.

    My Antaeus can beat up your Armani.

    Tabac original and Cacharel pour homme. I still like Tabac but the current Cacharel is as weak as piss, unfortunately.

    My father dealt in cosmetics at that time all the way through my teenage years, so our garage was full of perfumes and things. My sister and I were allowed to keep the sample sprays when they were too low to use any more, and we were allowed to use them to test. I seem to remember belonging to an Yves Rocher mail order club of some sort.

    At about the end of the communist era in my country, there were some 'dollar-shops' where there were very limited number of western scents. The first one I bought was Alain Delon Iquitos, a really gorgeous scent. And then my currency-limit was exhausted for a looong time
