    Question Is There a Fragrance That Epitomises 70's Disco ?

    I grew up in the 70's and miss it like hell !!!
    The Sweet, Roxy Music, Soul Music, etc.
    What a wonderful time.....

    For me, perhaps Missoni Uomo best epitomises that era.....
    although it was actually released in 1990 !
    ....can't explain.

    What reminds me of the 70s (disco or otherwise generally) and is still wearable to me is Aramis 900. I love this one!
    I agree with Paco Rabanne and thought of it too except I don't wear it anymore.

    Hello Everybody !

    My First post here is about the very first bottle of fragrance I owned...(as a teenager).
    It's the summer
    We're in the 70's
    I remember very well the feeling...
    So nice to splash on your body before going out...

    Oleg Cassini for Men. Good luck at finding it, though. Of the currently available ones, you've already gotten some good suggestions.

    I was born in the 80's so I asked my dad and he told me it was Givenchy Gentleman, Halston I 12 and Z 14 all the way for him. Thats what he "boogied down" to(his words not mine). Funny cuz I wear all three of those currently. Go figure. I was probably conceived with one of those frags hanging densely in the air. Ewww!

    Yes -

    I thought of Jovan Sex Appeal for Men as well - it is such a rich, spicy patchouli blend. The kind of clubs with a lot of heavy, lingering smoke from various substances...a great head-shop scent that fits the bill for sure!

    The 70s! When frags were unapologetic, as well as the wearers

    some other popular frags here were:

    Blue Stratos
    Macho
    Azzaro pour Homme
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    HI. I've been a big fan of nightclubs and perfumes, a love born together at the end of the seventies in the best of the disco era. In those days in Italy were divided into groups SuperMACHO and dandy, the first were directed to Yatagan, Mr. Carven, Ho Hang, and others were the most, went out with Paco Rabanne, Brut33, Azzaro pour homme Drakkar ... What a great time!
