Cool Water




I had a bottle of that once. It ran out just before a big night out so I had to use Warm Water, which wasn't nearly half as good!

Fahrenheit. Got me plenty action in the 90s.

I once asked the local chemist if they stocked Opium. I still can't figure out why the other customers stared at me.

Brut all the way

Way back in the 70's it was Charlie, 80's it was Rive Gauche Perfume by Yves Saint Laurent. 90's Chanel No 5 Perfume and these days its Ghost Deep Night

L'Occitane Jasmine and Bergamot.

I love it when I am in the middle of something and then get a lovely scent, and realise it's me and that I smell divine

way back, Cacheral, Armani and Kuros. now Hermes, Lacoste Red and Bang Bang Marc Jacobs

YSL Cinema

Ralf Lauren - Safari
Cool Water
Joop
Versace Dreamer.....
They all got me through my teenage years with the right amount of female attention!

Hai Karate.

drakkar noir was amazing and surprised to see they still make it

Who remembers the 80's Insignia deodorant advert. classic

Great tune for the Insignia ad too but not sure how it went.

In the 80s I was wearing ysatis, Oscar de la renta, and coco Chanel. Oh, and Chloe narcisse. Wow, I wear coco madamoiselle now, but I'd probably still wear the others

Japanese Musk, Activist & Oceanus from Body Shop....no longer available

Just for you

Favourite is Boss Bottled.
Used to like JPG and Joop! many years ago but can't stand them now.

One Million is possibly the most naff smell around at the moment, wear it whilst wearing your boot cut jeans and you're in a ten year time warp.
