    Only owned 2 bottles when I joined Basenotes (Hugo Element, Armani Code). I had just run out of the Hugo, so I found this site and started snooping around. Now I am up to about 130 bottles less than a year later - don't remember which I bought first, but I think it may have been Paco Black XS or Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche.

    Terre de Hermes parfum....most of my early choices were influenced by Luca Turin, andI believe TdH was the first that did not have a 4 or 5 star rating in his book.

    I believe it was Green Irish Tweed, There used to be so many positive topics going into really good detail and it really stood out all those years back, its still one of my all time faves.

    I'm pretty sure the first fragrance I got / was gifted (for christmas) after I joined basenotes was Aventus. It was the fragrance a friend let me test out of nowhere, and I've never in my whole life been so blown away by a fragrance. Do mind, this was at a time where I would do three sprays of a random Boss, go out and not think more about perfume that day.

    So yeah, Aventus as a sort of a gatekeeper for me, opening me up to a whole new world. In a year I've bought probably 50 fragrances, and my collection is something I'm pretty happy with now.

    I joined BN b/c I had heard Prince Charles sometimes wore GIT. I became obsessed with smelling it, and after reading the reviews on BN, bought a bottle. Sort of ironic that Creed is the house I criticize most...

    Chergui! It's the first thing I bought in my modern, adult, perfumista incarnation... I remember the weather turned in the fall, and I all I could think of was Chergui...
