    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...

    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.

    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.
