    Early seventies, when I was about 14, I wore an aftershave called Sven, by Yardley.

    Picked up a bottle of it off Ebay last year, for old times sake. It actually wasn't half bad!

    I snuck some of my dad's scents from time to time (Brut, English Leather, British Sterling), but the first scent I bought for myself was Hai Karate. It was so horrible, I'm surprised I stuck with men's frags at all after that.

    I can't fathom what they were thinking with that stuff. It would seem to have been an early and very poorly executed use of synthetics. Splashing it on with all the restraint of a horny teenager out to "get the girls" didn't help.

    In my memory, it was one of the first mass marketed scents that was very inexpensive and launched with a huge and infamous advertising campaign.

    Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur was the first frag I wore successfully.

    First I ever used was Polo for me too, my Dad gave away a very old, 3/4 used bottle as a castoff. I had to stop using it because I broke out in a skin rash every time!

    First I bought for me was L'Eau D'Issey.

    First I ever used was probably my dad's Obsession. First bottle I owned was Hugo, which I got for Christmas or a birthday.

    High-school boys in my generation would turn to English Leather (by MEM in those days) when they wanted something cooler than their dads' Old Spice. My dad was so cool that he wore English Leather! Then everybody was thrilled when the company brought out a flanker, English Leather Lime. Once I realized that even dads were wearing EL, I took the advice of a friend to buy a bottle of Moustache on a trip to Europe.

    The first I ever wore was probably my dad's Brut.

    I asked for, and received some Lancer as a gift. It was imitation Polo. First I recall buying for myself was Aramis, and it's still my all-time favorite.

    It was 1979 and the first I ever wore was my dad's Gillette after shave-now discontinued and probably impossible to find.I still believe it was a awesome scent.

    Well, I used Aqua Velva when I first started shaving. Didn't everybody?

    My first real fragrance (early 80's) was Musk by Coty. I also remember using Matchabelli and Eau de Sauvage, then switching to Colors by Benetton. Matchabelli was a really nice inexpensive chypre, typical of the period. Fortunately, not everything in the 80's was "powerhouse".

    I believe it was the original Calvin in 1984. But it's possible I had a plastic bottle of English Leather in 1982.

    I was given 3 bottles of fragrance one Christmas during my teens:

    Paco Rabanne pour homme
    YSL pour homme
    Oleg Cassini for Men

    These were first.

    Actually, I too played around with Dad's cologne before Oleg, Ralph L., and Pierre. And it was Chanel for Men that I had given him! Talk about starting off on solid ground! But Mom was the one who had suggested the Chanel for my Dad. She had impeccable taste in fragrance...still does. Love you Mom!

    My grandmother gave me a bottle of Drakkar Noir for xmas, I believe in the 9th grade. My first solo purchase was Swiss Army. I still have a soft spot for both, though I'd never wear them LOL.

    My father's perfumes, CARON POUR UN HOMME and ROCHAS MOUSTACHE
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
