The first cologne I think I ever wore was Brut (at age 5!!). I remember that when I was in kindergarten, my father would splash some of this on me so I'd smell classy (I guess). I remember kinda feeling self-conscious because I was the only kid in school that wore "adult" cologne!!
The first scent I ever bought for myself was Eternity for Men in 1993 (at age 30!). I really hadn't worn ANY cologne during my high school and college years (maybe a few splashes of my dad's Brut, Old Spice, and English Leather every once in awhile), but after reading a review of perfumes and colognes in Consumer Reports(!) magazine, I saw that Eternity for Men was ranked the #2 best smelling men's fragrance (right behind Drakkar Noir, which I didn't really care for at the time, but it has since become one of my all-time faves), so I decided to buy some. When I did, the salesperson gave me a sample of Cool Water, and I liked that one even better! I've been hooked on "good frags" (not cheapo drugstore wannabes) ever since!! [smiley=grin.gif]
