BeautyStat Community Remembers, Shares, Reviews the Fragrances & Perfumes They Loved Back in the 70s, 80s & 90s

We’re taking a walk down Memory Lane today, reminiscing about the fragrances of yore that used to make us feel like all that and a bag of chips when we put them on (more like doused ourselves in them!). Which oldies but goodies did you used to rock? Do tell…we LOVE a good blast from the past!

Starla Patton-Paulus Back in Junior High I wore Gloria Vanderbilt. Even now, when I smell it almost 30 years later, it takes me back to band practice and hanging out with my friends at the local grocery store in the makeup aisle. LOL, I’m from a small OK town, not a lot to do back then.
