    For me it was three fragrances. Polo, which I never owned and the two I wore, Obssession for Men and Drakkar Noir.

    +1 for Fahrenheit. I bought a bottle in 2012 which smells absolutely fantastic and wears amazingly well too. 3 sprays give me 10+ hours of longevity on skin, easily, and it's on my shirt until it goes through the wash.

    Of the fragrances released in the 80's that I've tried, I think Quorum and Drakkar Noir are the best. Reformulated or not, Quorum is a top notch fragrance.

    My thoughts exactly. Drakkar Noir was THE fragrance that defined that decade, at least among all the guys I knew. Some guys were rocking Calvin Klein Obsession, but Polo, Santos, Antaeus, etc. were strictly thought of as old man scents and were eschewed by most guys in their teens and early 20's. Although Cool Water did come out in the late 80's it was really more of a fragrance for the 90's as a precursor to ADG.

    Maybe different parts of the country had different impressions, but in my neck of the woods back then in high school until Cool Water took off, Polo was the rage (and rightly so). Very few wore Drakkar Noir, though that is indeed another great. The big alternates to Polo were the Calvin Klein 80s staples, back when they were ber potent... I, of course, also wore Polo... And more frequently Giorgio for Men.
    Current Top Favorites:

    My Top 10 for the 1980's would be:

    Polo (Ralph Lauren) - released in 1978, but was hugely popular throughout the entire decade
    Fahrenheit (Dior) - released in 1988, but hit the ground running and was big from day 1
    Green Irish Tweed (Creed) - 1985
    Obsession (Calvin Klein) - 1986
    Drakkar Noir (Guy Laroche) - 1982
    Xeryus (Givenchy) - 1986
    Azzaro (Azzaro) - same as Polo, released in 1978 but widely popular throughout the 80's
    Armani Eau Pour Homme (Armani) - 1984
    Antaeus (Chanel) - 1981
    Versace L'Homme (Versace) - 1986

    Yeah, I think you're spot on with this assessment because here in Southern California Drakkar Noir was definitely the scent for 'younger' men. Polo and CK were around as well but just not really worn by the young crowd. I guess it's not that different from current trends where certain fragrances are very common in certain regions like the way Le Male or 1 million are worn in certain parts of the world, I never smell them here!
