    Default What's your favourite birth year scent?

    By using the Advanced Search feature in the Fragrance Directory of everyone's favourite fragrance forum, you can work out what fragrances came out the year you were born.

    Favourites from my birth year would have to be:

    Chanel Antaeus
    Czech & Speake Neroli

    (Honourable mentions: Czech & Speake No. 88 and YSL Kouros)

    So, what are you favourite birth year scents?

    Creed Green Irish Tweed

    Though I don't own it, because I could get Cool Water for the same effect at a much cheaper price.

    I dont know much of the fragrances launched in 1987, but Bois du Portugal is my favorite of this year (also one of my favorites of all time).

    From the fragrances launched in 1985 it seems like GIT, Derby and Sables seem to be the standouts. I have unfortunately not smelled Derby or Sables yet so I'll go with GIT for now.

    I don't have many to choose from so it's gotta be either Drakkar Noir or Eau Suavage Extreme. Quorum and Artisan's L'Eau du Navigateur are in there too but I'm yet to try them!

    Some good stuff in 69 (Azuree, Chamade, O de Lancome, Calandre, Dioressence, Monsieur Rochas). Right now perhaps Calandre, but I alternate between that and Chamade or Azuree.

    I don't think there were any important male fragrance releases in 1977 - it was, however, a memorable year for the ladies: YSL Opium and Oscar de la Renta's Oscar are both exactly as old as me.

    I don't know any from that year.
    Not many to choose from anyway.

    The only one I would like to try is Diorella.

    1990's releases are pretty unremarkable save one: Chanel Egoiste.

    But I can't say I've had much experience with that fragrance (despite all of its praise on this site) so I can't just vote for it.

    Good God, I'm old. I was born in 1965.

    My surprising choice (edging out Habit Rouge): British Sterling. Yeah, I know it's a cheapie, but my dad wore it for a while, and a second hand bottle of British Sterling may have been the first I ever owned (can't remember now if it was British Sterling, English Leather, or Royal Copenhagen).
    Current Top Ten:

    1. Creed Millesime Imperial
    2. Serge Lutens Chergui
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Creed Virgin Island Water
    5. Chanel Eau de Cologne
    6. Thierry Mugler Pure Havane
    7. Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme
    8. Bulgari Blu
    9. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    10. YSL Kouros

    I'm amazed you didn't pick Fahrenheit. Your profile says you were born in 1988.

    It is funny how certain years don't bring up much, yet other years have so many great ones. Perfumery is art and great art in all forms tends to come in waves.

    Nice idea! Sadly, I don't know any of the fragrances in the list that were released in the year of my birth. (1980). I think the closest in my collection would be GIT which I love and also happens to be my SOTD!
