    My first ones were Avon Wild Country, and Sven by Yardley. I wish I could find some of the latter just for old times sake, I loved it.

    Kethàn you had quite an evolved and expensive taste for a young man. I could relate more to DJB's list from the 80's The skin musk you mentioned might have been Jess Bell Skin Musk for men. I had that also and would love to have it again. It amazingly had some smiliar notes to MKK's drydown.

    In order of use from youngest age 15 to 22 from the late 1970's to early 80's

    British Sterling
    Avon Wild Country
    Jovan Musk

    After Joining the Navy:

    Jovan Sex Appeal
    Jovan Grass Oil
    Pierre Cardin
    Prince Matchabelli
    Jess Bell Skin Musk for Men
    Polo
    Halston 1-12, Z-14 and 101
    Original Burberry
    The Baron
    Gray Flannel
    Eau Sauvage
    Guerlain Vetiver
    Darakkar Noir
    Jacomo de Jacomo

    I used to regift English Leather gift sets that I'd get from my Uncles. I tried to like Aramis and actually bought a bottle. My brother used to douse himself in it during the late disco 70's. I never actually liked Aramis. I took a long break from Frags and would occasionally wear patchouli or sandalwood oil or Guerlain Vetiver. It wasn't until 2 years ago that my love for fragrances was resparked with the help of BN. What a long strange trip it's been since then.

    I bathed in polo ( :
    used it as air freshener, even spayed it all over my car. I still have a bottle of it in my lincoln right now and use it as an air freshener every once in a while. I keep a small atomizer of all may favorite frags in my car at all times.

    I didn't wear any fragrances as an adolescent. I bought my first fragrance when I was in my mid twenties (it was Paco Rabanne). A little later I bought a bottle of Azzaro ph (which I never did wear very much). Now I own about 60 bottles.

    Vicks Vapour Rub was so often my "Scent of the Day" when I was growing up, I think this is why I have such an affection for camphor. I was also thrilled beyond belief for the smell of Noxema and Aquavelva.

    i was never really into cologne until november 07 and before then the only thing i remember using was whatever i freeload off someone. I was never too big on body sprays but i did use tag/axe from time time. the only bottle i remember having and using was when i was in the six grade i think the name was aspen some cheap drug store scent, i used the hell outta that until i lost the bottle lmao i still remember getting compliments like crazy from that.

Of course,went thru my dad's stuff as a kid..Prince machibelli,Jade East,Hai karate..all smell alike.Wish I could find the original Burberry for men with the blue cap..its extinct,,but I consider it one of their best,as did many of my friends. To many colognes for guys today smell like Drakkar Noir..and I cant stand it,it has the powerful "smell you coming for a block" attributes of Aramis. Although Tuscany,by Aramis is a winner,if used sparingly,again in the right spots.

    4711 & Brut were there in the house and I liked them but from about 16 after trying Patchouli Oil a few times I opted for Mysore Sandalwood Oil that the guy at the one and only head shop in Wellington was importing from India (along with some other very interesting stuff).

    When I was 14 my gf bought me "Navy" cologne from a drugstore. Even then I knew it sucked.

    I would also steal sprays of my Dad's Hugo by Hugo Boss. Then, one day he got Eau Sauvage and I tried that without sniffing the sprayer first. Big mistake when you're 15.

    Back in the 80's when I was a teen, I wore Stetson and British Sterling usually.
    I never liked strong, 80s powerhouse fougeres, so I always liked Stetson because it was different and sweet (unlike most 80s scents were). I hated Drakkar and Polo when I was in school. I associated them with macho, bullying jocks. The sweeter, Stetson was much more my personality.

    I only started to really get into fragrances in the last year, I'm 25 now, but in high school when I wanted to smell "good" for the ladies I had a bottle of some Kirra stuff I bought at PacSun that I thought was the best...(oh me) I also had some adidas aftershave, and a bottle of axe....for shame younger me, for shame....

    Graduated HS in 91, rarely did dudes wear cologne. I occasionally wore Eternity. No Internet and no fancy department stores we didn't have much to choose from. Cool water was my first purchase for myself, this was my 90's frag, still used cologne very sparingly. Ex wife, gf at the time got me issy, and lemale(my mid 20's). Now I started rocking frags on more occasions cuz I liked it and she liked how i smelled.

    These kids got it good with the Internet. I'd probably still be buying the cheap design frags.

    Well it has gotten a brief mention so I'll elaborate just a bit. In high school in the early seventies there was a juice that you did have to go to the Men's Store to buy called Dante' it came in a red glass bottle shaped like in the form of a roman soldier bust. More specifically it was called Dante' Inferno. Armed with a bottle of this stuff, you didn't even need to be a jock, all you needed was the juice, some wheels, (even a beat up rag top would do!) and a little cash for gas and wha la! Insto presto you had a ride full of the cutest Honey's (insert your town here) could provide. Had I known then, I'd have stockpiled that stuff. Nothing on the market today comes close to it, not even Molocule 01. So now a days I have to use my charm and wit! (alter-ego: Yeah and how's that working out for ya?)
