My fave perfume when I was a preteen/teen was Navy. And, I gotta admit, I still like smelling it today although I really don't wear it.

I also liked Lady Stetson, and I can remember when my friend and I were all about Love's Baby Soft, White Musk and, of course, Exclamation! LOL

What did you wear, and do you like it now?

my first perfumes were loves baby soft, debbie gibson electric youth, elizabeth arden sunflowers, and jessica mc clintock.

anything powdery makes me practically gag now, and i cant for the life of me recall what electric youth smells like or why i wore it, because i barely knew who debbie gibson was. sunflowers still smells just as good to me, but its very distinctive, and i wouldnt be caught dead wearing it. lol. my great great aunt has always worn jessica mc clintock, and it smells very comforting on her. i dont much care for it on myself.

i also wore some sort of naturistics dab on perfume that i really loved. (this was all pre highschool, BTW.)

in high school i didnt wear much of anything except gap heaven. i still sometimes reach for it, but its very different than anything else i wear.

LOL Halo!!! I had Electric Youth too!!! LOL (& I don't remember what it smells like either!- Guess it wasn't too memorable! ) I also wore Sunflowers & GAP Heaven in High School - a girl in class had it on one day - and I was hooked after that... I also wore Vanilla Fields, Jovan White Musk, Lucky You, and Curve... I had a bunch of perfumes I would switch around ... I can't even remember half of them! LOL

i could write an entire diatribe about the many reasons why i hate vanilla fields. one of my friends wears it, and lets just say that i can literally smell her across a parking lot when i am downwind.

i had the little bottle of electric youth- the one with the pink lightening bolt in it. i was always jealous of my friends larger bottle. she had the one with the little pink spring in it.

when i was in middle school, girls magazine really pushed loves fragrances, for some reason. that was me, using bonne bell 405 toner, or whatever it was called, and stinking like loves baby soft.

ROFL ... I remember the pink spring! Wasn't Electric Youth fruity or something? I never actually owned it but my friend did, and she thought she was COOL for having it, lol. Just like Debbie Gibson, hee!

OMG!! I remember wearing Navy as well!! That was my fave when I was in middle school.

I also wore Love's Baby Soft.

I also remember Exclamation, but I'm not sure if it was me that wore it, or my sister.

My faves when I was a teen were Babe by Faberge, Your the Fire by Yardley, and Jontue by Revlon. The first 2 have haven't been around for years, sometimes a bottle will pop up on ebay. Jontue is still sold in stores but it smells almost like bug spray to me now
. It's funny how our taste changes when we get older. Oh, and something else that was really popular back then was scented oils that came in tiny bottles, we all used to wear strawberry oil and lip gloss, my High School must have smelled like a fruit stand.

LMAO @ naturally and the douche comment. haaa!

do you guys remember the commercials for charlie? it was cindy crawford singing "and they caaaaaall it chaaaaaarlie." i remember SNL lampooning it, and they sang the jingle to the same tune, but the words were "and they call it tone deaf."

out of absolutely *morbid* curiousity, i smelled charlie today, and it was gagalicious. its the regular yellow charlie. bluuuuh.

I, too, wore Debbie Gibson's Electric Youth, and I had the pink spring bottle, as well - the large one!


I'd love a bottle of that nowadays, just because of the reminiscent quality of it for me. I was probably a few years older, so I actually knew who Debbie Gibson was, and adored her.


I also wore:

Loves' Baby Soft

Jean Nate

"Primo" - Parfums de Coeur's version of Giorgio by Giorgio of Bevery Hills

"A Little Sexy" - Parfums de Coeur's version of Red by Giorgio of Bevery Hills

There were probably more, but I can't remember right now. Fun stuff!

I remember wearing Cher's Uninhibited alot, as well as LuLu. From what I remember of how the Cher one smelt I think it was a spicy vanilla scent, I would like to find it again to see if I still like it. I don't think it is made anymore though. With LuLu I found it somewhere recently and I smelt it and could not beleive how sickly floral it was.

The Love's Baby Soft I remember freinds wearing that one but I don't think I did. As for the Debbie Gibson one I didn't know she ever had a scent. Maybe it wasn't in Canada.

Now a days me taste has changed slightly, I still like ones that are a spicy vanilla Like Cavelli, or Hot Couture. I also really like Hypnotic Poison and I currently wear most of the time Burberry Brit.

Another thread reminded me of this and I just started to recall some fragrances from my youth that I was crazy about.


  • Coty's Wild Musk (still love it)
  • Skin Musk
  • Avon's Sweet Honesty
  • Opium (when it was REALLY popular, but ok, this is not THAT old)
What perfumes do you remember wearing in the old days, your youth, etc., or way back when?
