    First one I bought, after starting to read Basenotes, while I was still lurking, was Allure Homme Sport, in Cancun Duty Free. That was a stupid and expensive way of finding out I don't like aquatics!

    First purchase after joining was a 3 bottle haul of Body Kouros, B*Men and Zero Plus Masculine. The Zero Plus got given away to a relative, but the others are big favourites of mine.

    I read so many good things about Body Kouros that I went and blind-bought a bottle. Big mistake- worst fragrance I've ever owned. After that, I was extra cautious and tried to get samples. One of the first samples led me to Avignon.

    Gucci Pour Homme (2003). I think I spotted a thread that said it was being discontinued, and I remembered seeing it in a store, so I figured I should give it a sniff. I liked it so much that I bought it. Months later, when I saw one box of it on a store shelf, I bought that too. I'm glad I did.

    Mine was L`Occitane's Eau des Baux not too long ago, and Creed Aventus shortly after that

    The disease has taken a strong hold since then

    Went to Vegas to potentially buy Heeley's Menthe Fraiche (The reason why I found Basenotes in the first place being that I saw this frag in a magazine and didn't even know they had mint in fragrances) and ended up buying CDG Wonderwood...and then Guerlain's Herba Fresca being that I was disappointed in Menthe Fraiche, Herba Fresca being what a mint frag should be IMO.

    I remember very well my first blind buy and first ever fragrance purchase was Opium pour Homme by Yves Saint Laurent

    I read all the reviews and made myself and idea of what it could be like but when I first smelled it it was totally different. At first I though "Oh my gosh what have I bought" but after a few days/weeks I came to appreciate it very much....

    Don´t wear it that often anymore... but I think it was a great introduction to the fragrance world.
