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

    My transition was thus:
    Jordache--->Pierre cardin--->Halston Z14--->Drakkar--->Polo Green--->Calvin

    I know there was another thread about favorite 80s colognes, but so many were made earlier that were worn prevlently in the 80s.

    Can't even remember but whatever the prevailing scents were at the time, that's most likely what I was wearing.

    Although I had a small wardrobe that included other things, Paco Rabanne was my signature fragrance. About 2 years ago I located a few time capsule boxed spray bottles from mid-80's. It was fantastic to get reaquainted with an old friend. Unlike most of the crap available today, a few sprays last an entire day.

    Probably more. Can't remember right now.

    There was a cheapish "herbal" Frag in a tall ridged bottle - a little like the old Eau Sauvage bottle. It smelled great, can't remember it's name though.

    I had also adorned Paco Rabanne.

    I think the prevailing frag in the night clubs had to be Drakkar. It must have been cheaper than Polo, because the ladies would go nuts if someone wore Polo like you were driving a Lamborghini.

    I loved that old xeryus. I remember clearly when they changed it after just a couple of years. Lost loads of balls - just shows that reformulations are not exclusively a modern problem.

    I've heard it's been poorly reformulated. Sad. It was my first signature scent.

    I remember I had Axe Atlantis which wasn't that bad tbh, but I really don't recall the exact year anymore...............I thought end of the 80's..........

    Edit: Just looked it up and Axe started in 1983 In France.

    Basenotes does not mention a year for Axe Atlantis. Anyway I owned it and thought it was in the 80's but who cares.............
