    Default What was your first cologne?

    It was only a couple years ago when I noticed that some of the fragrances that men wore were so fresh and universal that even myself as a woman could wear & enjoy. After some casual sniffing @ Dillards fragrance counters, I instantly fell in love w/ Clinique Happy for men. This became my first "Pour Homme" fragrance.

    Back in the late 80's, when i was 18 or 19, i bought my first cologne; it was Aspen for men. Later on in my 20's i was into Drakkar Noir.

    Hi,

    My sister gave me a bottle of CK One for Christmas around '94. I've had several different bottles since then, but I would have to say Fahrenheit was what started my interest in fragrances.


    Cheers,

    First worn? I'm sure it was either Old Spice, English Leather or Tabac Original. (Dad's three.)
    First bought for myself? Either Wind Drift or Racquet Club -- two of the (many) Dana fragrances of my youth.

    A bit of Old Spice, but then rapidly into Monsieur Musk by Houbigant...(late 70s)
    then Racquet Club...(early 80s)

    then Aramis and Drakkar Noir. But I think it was around the time I got Gucci Envy that I started sampling furiously.

    My first was Halston 1-12. I think I was 15. I wanted JHL but mum didn't think it was appropriate for my age.

    I still remember my first bottle - I was in university - first year and sample it during lunch hour inside a department store - the SA insisted that I try it. He was very generous as he gave me a decant - poured it in front of me, about 10 to 15 ml. I bought it a week later - when I got my paycheck.

    It was Héritage by Guerlain.
    The date - it was the openning day of its release in Canada - either 1991 or 1992

    Started early on the stuff with Yorktown back in '62, a tip from a sophisticated older friend. Everyone else I knew smelled of English Leather at the time.

    Brut came along soon after and everyone switched to it. I prefered to continue with Yorktown, finding Brut a bit gastly, until Canoe came along, venturing on to Aqua Lavanda, Oak Moss, and CM Lime.

    Aramis Tuscany in the mid 80's. Then went through a Chanel Pour Monsieur period and a Drakkar Noir period. Up until about six months ago, I only ever had one fragrance at a time and the ideas of having more than one, paying attention to the notes in a fragrance, or matching a fragrance to a season, occasion or mood were totally unknown to me.

    Thanks, Basenotes. Or damn you, I'm not sure which ;-).

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    Chaps was the first bottle of cologne I remember owning. Before that, I used to bum off my stepfather's Brut.

    I think it was Drakkar Noir, but it might have been Fahrenheite.

    Tommy was my first cologne. I wore it every single day in junior high. Now when I smell it, I always ask myself "Why???"
