    Equipage from a vintage mini. Its ok but I am more than a bit underwhelmed. I definitely like Bel ami much better. Bel ami has better projection as well. Monsieur Montana please tell us about your impressions of Turbo. I am also curious. When wearing a fragrance named Turbo one should feel compelled to occasionally whisper "Vroom, Vroom" under ones breath.

    I wasn't expecting so many questions gentlemen
    I have worn it some times till now but never stirred any interest.

    How i perceive it: This promotional photo from 1982 doesn't need any further explanations.



    As cytherian said this is a child of the 80's. Masculine, in your face, unmistakable.
    There are a lot of notes in there beginning with aniseed, lavender, rosemary, and getting down to leather, moss and what particularly get, a lot of musk.
    I somehow think of vintage Brut when i wear it.

    Couldn't have described it any better. The moss and musk basenotes seem to be the significant players, although the other ingredients are detectable almost throughout. In the Fabergé days, cheap and available everywhere didn't mean "not respectable". Now on the hunt for Macho and Cellini.

    Wearing Phileas for the first time from a mini. Its ok. Meh. Not something I feel compelled to chase after. I will probably use up the mini then not pursue it further.

    Thanks Monsieur Montana for satisfying our curiosity about turbo. I will definitely have to check that one out. Those older inexpensive, commonplace fragrances are not necessarily unworthy of pursuit. Some of them were quite good. I remember Brut, British Sterling and English leather being sold from men's fragrance counters in department stores when they first came out in the 60's. The same space in the stores that now sell upscale designer fragrances.

    Hello everyone. Guy Laroche Fidji for me today: notes include galbanum, hyacinth, lemon, bergamot, rose, jasmine, carnation, violet, ylang ylang, musk, patchouli, sandalwood, amber, vetiver, moss. Gorgeous, transporting. Manages to evoke a getaway to a tropical paradise without taking the usual coconut-suntan lotion route.

    tdem1961,

    Any time one can create the illusion of a tropical getaway for oneself I consider it a small but significant miracle and victory over the forces of the mundane.

    Best to you,

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I think Jon Rodgers just won the whole thread.

    But let's lift our chins off the floor and continue, shall we?

    From the sublime to the ridiculous:

    I recently posted about a guy I smelled this on in the "Smelled on the Street" thread, and it gave me such nostalgia I had to get a bottle.

    Great? No. Fun? Yes. Make you wanna rush out to an '80s disco? F*ckin' A.
