    Default Best of the Best of the '90s

    Since there is an '80s thread - what where the best fragrances introduced in the '90s?

    Seems like a contest between:
    - Chanel Egoiste
    - Guerlain Heritage
    - Boucheron Jaipur

    (yes I like orientals)

    For me it's Balenciaga Pour Homme which came out in 1990 but was discontinued in the late nineties. It is a incredible fragrance that last sixteen hours on my skin. It is one of only four fragrances out of hundreds I would give a score of a perfect ten out ten. Masterpiece status in my book.

    It's probably not my favorite decade for fragrances, but I would +1 Egoiste and Heritage. I'd also begrudgingly second everything on Tony T's list too: stuff like ADG and Curve are still easy for me to like no matter how strange my tastes tend to get.

    These threads are quite subjective. There's what was the biggest in the 90's, or what was the best for you. The best of the 90's for me were:

    Gucci Envy
    Live Jazz
    Bvlgari Black
    CK Be
    Aramis Havana
    Rochas Man
    A*Men
    Acqua di Gio

    Too many more to name.
    My 3 Signature Scents:

    Rive Gauche Light (2004)
    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)

    Agree with Egoiste. Another great one with no modern equal is Basara/Basala by Shiseido. I'm using my 50ml parsimoniously.

    CK One
    Polo Sport

    Good question...I haven't smelled Polo Sport since the late 90s, but I now feel compelled to find out (and to possibly buy another bottle!). Lol

    Oops. Of course I had to forget what I wear more often than anything else becuase it's second nature by now. Bulgari green tea, with the entire bath and body line as my only delivery vehicles. If the "Most Worn" data included the data from, whatstheirnames, those guys, those guys from last year, then green tea would be at the top of my top ten by a significant margin.

    Like a lot of other people, I first happened upon Bulgari Eau Parfumee au the Vert in a Four Seasons guest room bathroom. I asked Bulgari to hold a twentieth birthday party for it but they either didn't bother or they threw the party without inviting me.
