Hello, I was sort of accused of being a troll so I thought I'd introduce myself. I've been enjoying different colognes since I was 13, wearing Polo original, Kourous, even Drakkar Noir (I did mention I was 13), but pretty much stopped wearing when I started working in a cubicle farm and then later joined the service (strong scents were frowned upon in both, close quarters and all). I've been a civilian for a couple of years now, and have two sons who are becoming interested in wearing cologne so I've sort of been drawn back into scent and basenotes has been an incredible reference. With all the discussion of Aventus Creed I bought a sample and really enjoyed it so went all in with the 4 oz., and also recently started wearing Guerlain Heritage EDT. Before these the most recent cologne purchase was about two years ago, a bottle of Set Sail St. Barts by Tommy Bahama, and before that I received a bottle of Burberry Touch as a gift. Again, the discussion here has been amazingly informative, thanks to all and any recommendations are always welcome (I'm currently on a smoky kick, but still branching out). Cheers!
