‘Forgotten’ Fragrances worth re-discovering

Like many men of a certain age, watching Netflix’s Halston reminded me of the designer’s incredible men’s fragrances – especially the wonderful Z-14 which, though it launched in the mid-seventies, was still very much in the public consciousness in the eighties.

On the back of that I immediately ordered a bottle online and quickly discovered when talking to friends that I wasn’t the only one who had (its current distributors must be thrilled). Like many fragrances that have fallen from favour it is still remembered fondly – and is still hugely wearable. It’s also encouraging to see guys who weren’t even born when it launched – and in some cases whose parents weren’t even born – curious about its worth. But Z-14 isn’t the only ‘forgotten’ fragrance worth rediscovering – there are lots. So, for my first piece for luxury site Robb Report I take a look at Halston’s Z-14 and some other forgotten fragrances worth rediscovering in 2021. Is one of your favourites amongst them?
