Terre D'Hermes after the 7th awards
Creed's Original Vetiver; blind buy and I was hooked!
"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force." Ayn Rand...

Terre d'Hermes. It has never left its chaise in my pantheon of scent.
Sorry to "copy" *ehem* but I was all set to give up on Terre d'Hermes as well and because of the reviews here I tried it again and was hooked. It's now one of my favorites of all time. Because of Basenotes, I'm a fragrance fanatic! Thank you Basenotes!

Well, first of all, Basenotes inspired me to order a whole bunch of samples. That in turn has lead to the definite purchase - imminent if not yet actualized - of Knize Ten, which I've fallen in love with.
Either something from Malle or the CdG Avignon or Kyoto.
I took the advice of my brother from another mother aka mikeperez and bought the Kelly Caleche.
Thank you Mike

I have basenotes to thank for introducing me to the wonderful world of Geir and everything by L'artisan
(my 2 "signature" scents are now Geir for warm weather and Tea for Two in cool weather)
Think it must have been Musc Ravageur . . .

Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

Ah, my first Basenotes buys - four L'Artisan decants: L'Eau de L'Artisan, Mure et Musc, Ananas Fizz and the love-at-first-sniff Voleur de Roses.
Thank you, guys and gals, for paving the way to my slippery slope
Mugler Cologne ------- very very very green. l love it.
My addiction to fragrances is a recent thing. It all started when all I wanted to do was to look up what people 'thought' of a few fragrances I saw for sale on a flyer. Then it just snowballed and the next time I got to a store, I was checking out all the stuff people on here repeatedly mentionned or liked.
Pretty much everything I have, I was influenced on buying because of basenotes.
I believe mine was Gucci Envy, my second bottle ever.
I am almost certain it was three scents. GIT, Himalaya and Vera wang for men. I had no Idea one could find these scents on the web so I drove about 130 miles round trip to a Neiman Marcus north of Detroit near the Palace at Aubern Hills Just for the Creeds. Saw the Vera Wang as an aside and thought. What the hay might as well get that too. The Git and Vera still thrill me. I have a come and go relationship with himalaya. I don' dislike it but sometimes its like eeeeeeh maybe I'll wear it maybe not.

I actually bought B*Men blind because I read on here that you can't go wrong with any of Mugler's scents. I'm now thinking of getting Mugler Cologne...
M7, Caron Third Man, and Chevignon.
LOVE all three.
I remember this one 'very' clearly...
Guerlain Vetiver, along with Creed's MI and Green Irish Tweed.
Because of Basenotes: I know refer to cologne as "Smell good" thanks to Tvlampboy... Thanks sir

Dior Homme was the first scent I can really remember buying based on reviews and ravings of people here. I bought it blind, obviously, and it worked out in my favor. I got a scent that I will never be without again.
