Turbo is a spicy aromatic cologne that launched in 1980 and was discontinued in 1984 according to Basenotes. It's slogan was "Turn It On".
Turn it on. Turbo by Faberge. A very new fragrance for men. It's supercharged!
There was a giveaway in the early 1980s where Faberge gave away two grand prizes of a Datsun 280-ZX Turbo sportscar (which they used in their Turbo advertising) along with VCR/Audio systems, Apple II Plus personal computer systems, Leica R-4 cameras and lenses, Yamaha Seca Turbo motorcycles and 500 Faberge Turbo gift sets.
Fragrantica: I found in a little store for few euros Turbo by Faberge. This is an "absolutely 80's". It opens citrus but then became very herbal, dense and aromatic, with a barbershop taste. On my skin it's not a beast, it's average in longevity and sillage. Good for any season but summer. Scent: 7.5, longevity: 7, sillage: 7.5, versatility: 7, uniqueness: 7.5, bottle: 7.5, my vote: 7.5. In one word: Turbooooo!
Fragrantica: My dad was using this fragrance in 80s .. still remember it .. it's my favorite one from my Dad's fragrances. Really I wish to buy it if available.. Sorry it is discontinued !.. Love it love u Daddy
