    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.

    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    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.

    That was in the 70s-80s, so basically all today's Powerfrags and Old-man scents. Still my favourites today.

    I'm impressed by the variety in some of your adolescent collections! I was happy alternating between Drakkar Noir and Swiss Army. To change it up, sometimes I'd mooch some of the old man's Polo.

    My first was Brut, and then later, in high school, Swiss Army, and, in college, Polo Sport.

    At school I was referred to "the guy who always smells fine", at the antipodes to a South African guy called by classmates "Hedi", from "Hediondo", meaning in "foul smelling" in Spanish.

    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'm still a teen so i guess whatever i'm using now.
    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.

    A Blue Stratos man....Loved the stuff,but cant find it anymore...I found the original Burberry for Men,with the blue cap with lion on it,my own personal scent,it was me. Runner up, Karl Lagerfeld,,women would bury their face between my pecs and thats all it took..LOL Halston Z-14..still like it.Oscar de Laurente for Men is a fav.As long as it is lightly applied,in the right places.Oddly,I love Pinaud Clubman..the stuff the barber used after a haircut,and shave,when they did shaves.Still use the body powder.Like Bayrum too,for work. 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).

    CK Escape was my jam.(now re-packaged as Bond No. 9 I Love NY for Him)

    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.

    Why would you get hated for Preferred Stock? I don't think any of us were wearing any 5-star fragrances! (or 2 star even)
