Rocket's Top 10 Men's Fragrances 1982 - The Present

Rocket's Top 10 Men's Fragrances 1982 - The Present

I'm still Obsessed with fragrance. But growing up in a smaller rural East Texas town I felt more Kouros than Brut or Stetson. With Jovan Musk Oil available at Walgreens that was my first experience with fragrance. Discovering Pierre Cardin for men when I was hired at Chess King, my first retail position, I wore it with pride. I've matured and my tastes and education in men's fragrances has as well.  Below are my Top 10 Men's Fragrances 1982 - The Present. Drop a comment on your favorites, I'd love to hear them.

1. Hermes Terre d'Hermes - present winter

2. Kouros Yves Saint Laurent - late 80's

3. Bvlgari Pour Homme - present summer

4. Acqua Di Parma Bergamotto DI Calabria - mid 2000's 

5. Santos Cartier - late 80's

6. Obsession Calvin Klein - late 80's 

7. CK one Calvin Klein - mid 90's 

8. Lauder For Men - Estee Lauder - mid 90's 

9. Egoiste Chanel - early 90's 

10. L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Issey Miyake - early 90's 

I will conjecture many of you will relate to backstory regarding men's fragrances. I'd love to hear your personal journey, just drop a comment below. Rocket Hulsey



My favorite perfume is Joy, but my husband loves original Polo. Nice to see a collection of classic and newer men’s fragrances I’ve never heard of. I’ll have to buy some for my man.

I adore all Calvin fragrances, specifically Obsession! Would love to see more Rocket Ranks in the future :-)


I still love so many of the classics. Drakkar for one I still wear today.


I used to love Calvin by Calvin Klein. I wore Polo by Ralph Lauren. My first cologne was English Leather as a young teenager.
