    Maybe Knize Ten edt? Mitsouko parfum? Santos Concentrée? I have no idea...

    I was just reminiscing about this. It was a bottle of vintage Mitsouko parfum from
    ebay, I was bidding for that and Tabac Blond.

    Quickly followed by 100ml bottle of Chanel no. 19 edt from the local Bloomingdales.

    After a rocky start with Mitsouko, I'm still enjoying both of them, three years later.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Azzaro Visit, Silver Shadow Altitude and now Bvlgari Aqva.

    I guess it was a good start, 3 blind buys, 3 great scents. Visit is my favourite, but I think I'm gonna have to let it aside for a little bit now that the weather is really hot where I live here in Brazil.

    I cannot remember, I'm going to have to guess and say Black XS by Paco Rabanne.

    Funny, after I bought it, my husband fell in love with it more than I did, and it became one of his staple scents that he wears til now (he's gone thru 3 bottles of the stuff).

    Romeo Gigli per Uomo: funny bottle, funny cap, funny scent - loads of notes leading to something nondescript and vaguely cheap smelling.

    I think LADDM, followed by Fumerie Turque (though it's possible I joined in between buying these two).

    There is no way that I can remember my 1st scent purchased after I joined Basenotes.

    Bvlgari Aqva, and it's still my favorite. I love this site, but it's not good for my wallet.

    Eau Sauvage. I got married shortly after, so this became my honeymoon scent.

    I think Escada Magnetism. Dropped the bottle a couple years later and haven't replaced it, but I liked it.

    I think that first purchase was two bottles: Eau de Cartier for myself, and Terre de Hermes for my husband.

    New member here. Bvlgari Aqva was my first purchase since joining BN. I love its masculine, beachy salt water vibe but its definately going to be a better fit in the summer months in T-shirt and sandals. In the meantime, I've been wearing my old standby - Versace Man Eau Fraîche until I discover something new.

    I was a long time lurker of these forums and wound up purchasing A*Men based on all the things I read. I was not disappointed, I really liked it for occasional use.

    You guys are really making me want to buy Bvlgari Aqva lately. I might have to add it to my Santa's wishlist.
