Currently obsessed(!) with CK Obsession! It's an oldie but a goodie! Anyone else revisiting older perfumes?

I haven’t revisited but I used to love Aqua de Gio, Cerutti 188, CK One and Samsara back in the day. Will have to hunt them down when next out shopping to have a sniff. No idea if the last one still exists.

Not revisiting because it was discontinued but I still miss Monsoons Blue Lagoon. I bought the last few bottles in my nearest shop plus the testers for a couple of pounds each and made it last as long as I possibly could.

Guerlain- Jardins de Bagatelle. About 100 years old, and still lovely.

I loooooove Cerutti 1881... it's so cheap too!

saganorenscarandcoat · 07/11/2018 16:42

I love Cerutti too, it's beautiful

Guerlain Chamade.
Got my first bottle when I was 13

SuperstarDJ Samsara for you.

The aftershave Cerruti 1881 is much nicer than the perfume Cerruti 1881.

Davidoff Cool Water is nice, and Georgio Beverley Hills is fabulous as long as you use the soap, bath stuff or lotion and not the perfume (too strong).

Les belles de rici. I loved that and often search for it to no avail. Amazon had it for a while for mega bucks but I'm too skint.

Les Belles de Ricci here too, dontfluff! Was my all time favourite and when I tried to revisit it a few years ago I was quite upset to find it had been discontinued.

dontfluffthefluffer · 07/11/2018 18:03

I'm so desperate just to smell it one more time, it was beautiful and I doused myself in it liberally for so many good days/nights out 😂.

I may start emailing Nina Ricci daily for a rerelease!

Ralph Lauren romance is one of my favourites, I wore it at school and still wear it sometimes now.

SheHasNotions · 07/11/2018 18:55

dontfluff - keep your eye on eBay! Vintage and retro perfumes inevitably turn up on there, including samples.

Although you may pay over the odds, but it’s worth it for an old love Grin.

Chloe Innocence.

GreyHare · 07/11/2018 19:32

Eau de Gucci in a navy blue plastic slim rectangular bottle my Mum wore it in the 80's and I used to steal a squirt when I went out.

Armani White. I loved it and think of it often 🙁

Bugjune · 07/11/2018 20:16

Chanel No.5 eau de cologne
Nuit de Noel

They don't make 'em like that any more. Thank the lord for fleaBay!

Lillygolightly · 07/11/2018 20:28

Monsoon blue lagoon
Beautiful (sheer)

Contradiction - I still wear this regularly and love it.

obviouslymarvellous · 07/11/2018 21:04

Samsara and cerutti 1881 - I don't miss the poison perfume, anais anais or Loulou 

halfwitpicker · 07/11/2018 21:07

Had a spritz of CK Eternity the other day. Felt like I was back in Gran Canaria!

costacoffeecup · 07/11/2018 21:09

I rediscovered Clinique happy and I love it still! It's not that pricey either.

I’ve just rediscovered anais anais - it’s wonderful

beyondthesky · 07/11/2018 22:16

I bought myself a bottle of Loulou a few weeks ago. I used to wear it everyday in my late teens/early 20s.

I wear Coco Chanel now (I have more money!) but I smell the Loulou every day as it's so evocative of my life back then.

RavenLG · 07/11/2018 22:23

Cerruti 1881, and a short phase of Light Blue (but smelled it recently and gagged)

Kangol used to do a perfume years ago I loved as a teenager, not even sure it had a "name" I always had it as teeny sample / travel bottles
