I was a big fan of Aramis back then. I went through a lot of different colognes in experimentation, but none of them really seemed to hit the sweet spot I was looking for.Here's a few-Obsession, Aramis, Pierre Cardin, Preferred Stock, Coty Musk, Quorum to name a handful I still use and enjoy. My how some of those clobber the stuff sold now.
I love Ralph Lauren's line of clothes, and for years, I wanted to get some Polo Green cologne. (I wouldn't even consider the newer flavors like Red, Blue, Black, or Double Black.) I viewed Polo Green as a classic scent and figured it would fit well with the rest of my collection.I never had Polo or Nautica, but I knew many guys who had to have hot and cold running taps of both in there showers.
I really like the Blue. I wore the sport as a young soldier in my late teens and early twenties. Double black is pretty good on my skin and might get a bottle again some day.I love Ralph Lauren's line of clothes, and for years, I wanted to get some Polo Green cologne.

I shopped around for years until I found some at what seemed like a good price. When I finally put some on, I couldn't stand the stuff. It smelled raunchy and reeked for hours. I never used it again.
Are you sure Drakkar Noir has been reformulated and is somewhat weaker? I've read that on a few forums, but I'd like to know where the bottles are bought. I have a feeling that older stock is sold at the discounters. If someone told me they paid top dollar at Macy's, Nordstrom's or Bloomingdales and compared it to a vintage bottle, then I would be sure. Then again, the bottle I have is about 20 years old or more and still smells quite strong.Drakkar has been reformulated really badly, its more like a splash or an aftershave than an edt nowadays
Aramis brings me back to my college days in the 1970's and feeling so, so youthful! Back then, I even used the Aramis shampoo, then splashed on some Aramis cologne and headed to class. I still can remember the gorgeous blonde with green eyes that I used to sit next to, fantasizing about her for half the class, hoping she would be overcome with desire from the scent, while secretly wishing she would pin me against the wall as soon as class was over!I am 32 and just purchased Aramis. I love the smell of it. It is much more interesting than some of the current scents.
