    Sadly I haven't tried anything from the directory listed as being launched in 1968. If I look a couple of years either side of that I'd have to say Equipage (1970) or Eau Sauvage (1966).
    My current top 10 (subject to change) in no particular order:

    Rive Gauche Pour Homme, Essenza de Zegna, Zegna Essenze Amber Gold, Armani Privé Sable Or, Armani Privé Vétiver Babylone, Mancera Cedrat Bois, Acqua di Giò Profumo, Amouage Dia Man, L'Artisan Explosions d’Emotions: Amour Nocturne, Zegna Essenze Italian Bergamot/Acqua di Bergamotto

    Jicky! Just kidding. Intriguingly, my favorite fragrance of all time, Guerlain's Vetiver, was launched the year I was born.

    My year of birth was 1987 and for me, there's only one scent that takes the title for that year - the wonderful Bois du Portugal by Creed!

    Not really much else for '87.. nothing great springs to mind. Maybe the 80s powerhouses heyday was drawing to an end and the beginnings of the 90s aquatic era was in the post? I was a little young to remember.

    If I'd have been one year younger the equally amazing Fahrenheit by Dior from 1988 would have been my clear choice. I'd probably choose it even before BdP.

    Firstly, this a cool thread something a bit different for once (even if it is from a few years back)

    Secondly of the 79 fragrances launched in 1978 I've only tried 3 as I'm not a fan of vintage scents at all, and no surprise I didn't really like any of them, but I guess Lagerfield Classic and Polo by RL are at best meh and the Azzaro well Azzarno thankyou
    My top 30

    1. Gucci Envy / D&G By Man
    2. MFK Baccarat Rouge 540 /Cedrat Boise
    3. Costarela / TFK Arab Spring
    4. Dior Homme Intense / D&G The One EDP
    5. Dior Homme Cologne / Chez Bond
    6. Pegasus / Aventus
    7. Antidote / By the Fireplace
    8. Gucci Pour Homme / Armani Attitude

    Nope, nothing good in 84.

    I do find it fascinating though how only 30 men's frags were produced in 84. Fast forward to the more recent years, and there are hundreds of men's frags produced every year.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Le Vetiver Itasca (2010)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Nothing that year that I like (I only know like 5 of them)...but it's such a huge number increase of releases in the current years than ~35 years ago.

    Happy Birthday to you Yarn!!

    1977

    The only one I know is Opium, which I've known a number of men to wear. Men's fragrances that year look to be slim (or now discontinued).

    Old Spice Herbal and Monsieur Jovan look interesting based on their tv ad: https://youtu.be/2PA2UeVnTb0

    Bois Noir
    Ho Hang Club

    If we count Egoiste as Bos Noir, both are my all time favorite too, isnt that just great.

    Cool thread!

    I come from an impressive year: Derby, Third Man, La Nuit, Sagamore, GIT, Lauder for Men...I own or have owned a number of them.

    Favorite? Tough. Current version, probably Derby, or maybe Sagamore. Vintage: La Nuit.
