When someone walks past, or stands next to me and smells of an 80's perfume I am familiar with, I feel like going back in time and feel nostalgic over something I can't quite put a name to. And I wonder if the familiar 80's perfume I miss is still sold somewhere and where I can buy it. It's been two decades, and a huge number of new scents introduced in the market every year that some of the 80's perfume scents are left on the back shelf or even on storage. Some, I think, may have been off the market for a long time or may be phased out.
Well, let me jog your memory and mine, here's a partial list of the perfumes from the 80s that I love! And the good news is that these 80s perfumes are still sold by reputable online stores.

A particular perfume can also make us feel good and more confident about ourselves, making us feel positive and having the ability to attract friendship and love. Indeed, scents and fragrances often bring back old memories and the emotions associated with it. :) But for most of us, it is still the fragrance that matters on why we choose to wear a particular scent. In the end it is a matter of how we want to project ourselves.
I love the 80's perfumes as well as the new scents we have out in the market. Perfumes are really my thing and what I found awesome right after I wrote this article in 2013 is that there is a networking company here in the Philippines that sells a variety of perfumes for men and women. One perfume I really like from Zoom Global that has that 80-ish fragrance is Ascento Parfum VIII similar to Lacoste Pink. This is how my favorite pink Charmis cologne used to be, yey! Ascento Parfum VIII has top and base note of blood orange, coriander, jasmine, violet, sandalwood and vanilla. Costs only Php399.00 SRP (within the Philippines) For orders abroad, soon to announce.
