    Count no AXE, I bought Fahrenheit, Lacoste Booster and Polo Sport at the same time but could not remember which scent I wore first. That was when I was about 16 years old. But the first scent that really captured my olfactory sensation is Dunhill Edition.

    1. Creed Aventus
    2. A*Men Pure Malt
    3. L'instant Extreme
    4. Nasomatto Duro

    I seem to recall using Old Spice waaaay back but I'm not sure if I was just borrowing my dad's.
    My first very own bottle was Dana's Canoe (early 70s) followed by one called Jade East (strongly oriental & a real sillage monster as I recall).
    I used Aqua Velva after shave some and I remember being in awe of Brut (but never acquired a bottle for some reason).

    10-11 Jovan Musk, U2, Aspen and another cologne that smells like Hugo. I stopped at 13 and started again at 16 with addidas Moves-Adrenaline. Then at 18 Givenchy PH

    Default Re: When did you start wearing colognes and what was your first scent?

    Probably when I was around 15-16, it was a bottle of Lomani from a hairdressers near mine. Then I moved onto the rip-offs of Joop! Homme and Fahrenheit. My first 'real' fragrance was about 3-4 years ago; Dunhill X-Centric, then Polo Blue, FCUK Him, then Nightflight, then I joined basenotes and now own about 10-12
    As a side note, I bought the 'classic match' version of Unforgivable today, called 'Unjustified', and in all honesty it smells alot better than the real Unforgivable (asides from the cumin assault in the top notes of Unjustified). I felt embarassed buying a ripoff, and I actually feel guilty spraying a 13$ frag compared to some of the stuff Ive paid up to 80$ for, but hey it smells good

    I wore Dunhill Desire occasionally when I was 16-17. Then Givenchy Very Irresistible, wore it occasionally as well and still wear it. My official start though was in January of 2008 (I was/am 21) when I bought my first bottle. It was Polo Double Black, and that's why I have a special connection with this scent.

    When I was about 11, my cousin bought me a bottle of the original Calvin.

    WOW...no wonder I'm addicted to colognes....she set me up with a VERY nice start.

    I was already at university, 19 or 20. Came from a non-fragrant household (Old Spice AS excepted). And what did I fall for? Azzaro pour homme. It wasn't really me either , that would have been Jil Sander Man Pure, a couple of years later.

    My older sister bought me a bottle of Canoe when I was around 12 years old. Plus I remember "borrowing" colognes from my father - Old Spice, Jade East, Hi Karate.

    My first cologne technically was Hai Karate for my 9th birthday. I was easily influenced by the hilarious TV ads. I have no idea if they're available anywhere but if you want to laugh at how fragrance was marketed in the 60's this is a pretty funny example.
    The first cologne that I actually went out and bought; conscious about how I wanted to smell, was Jovan Musk when I was 13.

    It was like 1983, I was 16 and a girlfriend gave me Z-14. We were swimming and lying around at the Klamath River, watching enormous cloud sculptures of phosphates scud by and wondering who would be the first to lose the suit. I still have the bottle. Wow, weird.

    14 with Lagerfeld...I remember the scented insert in the paper and had to grab it up. I experimented with Hai Karate when I was 10, but my girlfriend of the time gagged...methinks I used too much!

    I believe I was around 10 or 11 and I got Hugo by Hugo Boss then came Blue Jeans and I was hooked from there on out.

    I wore my father's Lagerfeld Classic from about 13-18 and, when I went to college, I bought a small bottle of Obsession that in hind sight, I might have applied too liberally.

    When I was 7 years old and older, I used my grandmother's English Cologne by atkinsons, when I was at her house. That was the first perfume I ever wore.

    My "first" was Guerlain's Habit Rouge... I was 15, it was 1986- 'an I've been hooked ever since!
    - A spritz of Caron may be quite continental, but (a flacon of) Guerlain is a perfumisto's best friend...

    When I was very young I would slap on some of my dad's Mennen Skin Bracer or Old Spice. I would have been about fifteen when I bought Yardley's Cologne. But my first love in fragrance was Lanvin's Vetyver - light years from the current weak juice that bears this name. This would have been when I was in highschool - probably around 1966
