14 Iconic 80s Perfumes We Loved as Teenagers and Wish Would Make a Comeback
In honor of Valentine’s Day and Bob’s very ’80s gifts to his wife, I went on a deep dive on iconic 80s perfumes that should make a comeback.
OK, Bob’s gift was an Estee Lauder gift pack. And to be really honest, it was makeup and skincare, not White Linen eau de parfum.
But still, I was like “Um, you went totally ’80s on that gift.”
Because all I could think of was spraying “Beautiful” all over my Champion sweatshirt before I went to go drink in the woods with whichever boy I had a crush that week.
Listen, the 80s were ICONIC for perfume for many reasons.
One, smelling like Love’s Baby Soft is a core memory I think we should all revisit.
Plus, the perfume you wore said a lot about who you were as a teenager.
I mean, all I can say is if you had a best friend who wore Poison on the regs, you were DEFINITELY having a good time on the weekends.
My first perfume was the 1st runner up of teen fragrances – Heaven Sent. And WHY they didn’t call it Heaven SCENT is beyond me.
MISSED OPPORTUNITY MADISON AVE.
The Miss America of Teen Perfume title went to Love’s Baby Soft, which, combined with Aqua-Net, Bonnie Bell lip gloss and Sun-In caused more chemical damage to the environment than the Exxon-Valdez disaster.
And if you were wearing Opium, you were a confident, one-percenter who scared me a little.
Sure, half this crap probably caused cancer in test-monkeys, but boy did we love them.
