    This doesn't directly answer your three questions, but the first I remember smelling were my father's English Leather Lime and my mother's Evening in Paris. The first I bought was Jovan Grass Oil. Another early purchase was Oleg Cassini. It's kind of sad that none of these are made anymore.

    1. Michael Jordan Cologne - It came in a set that I gave my dad when I was in 4th grade. I am sure it did not smell great but the set looked cool and I was the biggest MJ fan at the time.

    2. Nautica Classic - Wasn't terrible but I never was in love with the cologne. I believe I got it in 5th grade from my parents.

    3. Woods by A&F - I always loved Woods and still have some left that I use every now and then for the nostalgia effect.

    1. First fragrance I smelled: I believe my mom gave me a sample of Malibu Musk, I would be shocked if anyone can remember that one.

    2. First fragrance gift: My Grandma gave me bottles of Actif Blue and Brut as a gift.

    3. First fragrance purchase: Boss Bottled , certainly foreshadowed a very unpleasant perfume chronology.

    1) The first fragrance I wore was either Old Spice or this thing from Avon in a bottle shaped like a cowboy boot that smelled awful.

    2) The very first fragrance I owned was a gift to stop me from pilfering my Dad's Old Spice. I guess I must have been 9 or 10 at the time. Although I can't remember the name of it is was in a chintzy white plastic splash on bottle roughly shaped like a lighthouse, with a blue plastic lid and a blue and gold sticker that had an image of a lighthouse.

    3) Jovan Musk for Men that I purchased as a gift set at the age of 13.

    3. I first purchased Polo when the bottle my grandfather gave me broke.

    Aspen by Coty, given to both my brother and me as christmas gifts. Neither of my parents were into fragrances very much. Old Spice for my dad, and random celebrity frags for my mom.

    Incidentally, giving a middle schooler a splash bottle of cologne for their first fragrance perhaps isn't the greatest of ideas. I'm sure you can all imagine what happened

    I'm racking my brains trying to figure out this one. I remember seeing it. Must have been one of the Wild Country bottle variants.

    EDIT: bingo!

    never did get into my dad or older brother's stuff (older brother had Polo.. I didn't like it)

    no one has ever given me fragrance

    Eternity was my first purchase. I have even re-bought it. While it was heavily overused for a while, it does deserve its place in the FiFi hall of fame.

    First tried some aftershave that came in a squarish clear bottle with a woven grass around it...anyone know the name? It was dad's aftershave, I think it was a lime something or other...anyone know?

    First gift was a little combo pack of Hermes Equipage my gramps gave me, he got it on a flight to somewhere in Europe. It had two little bottles-one EDC or EDT and one aftershave. I loved it.

    First bottle I bought was Gray Flannel. Second was Fahrenheit

    1st I tried: My dad got a bottle of California for Men as a gift & kept it @ his desk @ the church. I used to squirt some on a piece of paper & carry it around to sniff. Occasionally I'd sneak a spray to the back of my hand.

    1st as a gift: Sweet Honesty by Avon

    1st I bought: I want to say the first one I bought for myself was Tribe...& I think that was by Coty. Followed shortly by Lady Stetson, Vanilla Musk, & Ex'cla'ma'tion. Blech.

    My brother gave me a bottle of Grey Flannel when I was 15 or 16.
    A year or two later I bought Drakkar Noir since that was what the clerk at Dillard's recommended.

    I didn't really care for either of them.

    1. Am I wrong or I can deduce the age of participants in this threat from the answers given?
    2. Old Spice looks like an introductory brand, specially for those 40 yo +. Wonder P&G knows about this, they wouldn't mistreat their brand so much!
