    Perhaps Geir. After that I could see its another face, but somehow at the first time I felt some ethereal beauty.

    Hermes' Rocabar. It opened my eyes to the world of serious fragrance: the idea that fragrance could be savored.

    L'eau D'issey, Pour Monsier Concentree.

    A fragrance that I would love to revisit is Lacoste Elegance. For some reason it has stuck to me. I gave my bottle to an old friend but I certainly want to own another bottle soon. A very sexy unisex smell.

    For me, I must say Old Spice Classic Cologne. I am just a "youngster" and had never smelled it before. I had used old spice classic body wash and loved it though....so one day in the drug store I saw that shiny metallic red box, opened it up, popped off that little red cap with the star on it and sniffed it. I was hypnotized!! I bought a bottle of it along with the matching deodorant, I totally dig this scent. Now it's one if my favorites!! .........Im on a horse.

    Guerlain Vetiver Pour Elle, to this day still the greatest smelling fragrance I've ever smelt.

    I'm gonna sound like a pretentious blah blah blah, but almost every first impression I have is sort of like this: "Hmmm I really like this aspect, however, I wish it was a little more ______...." OR "Hmm, I really like this, but this smells a lot like ______"

    You get the picture. I'm never wowed until an actual wearing.

    But if I had to give an answer I'd say GIT.

    It was A*Men. Up to that point everything I had smelled was somewhat mainstream and subsequently boring. I remember thinking "Wow I didn't know cologne could smell like this!"

    As mentioned, Amouage Reflection was definitely my most "OMG, that is AMAZING!" moment, but I do have to give credit to GIT. I tried this scent long before Reflection and it didn't immediately knock my socks off. Originally, I thought - hey, this is pretty good, actually very nice - but then as the iris of the heart came out, along with the lemon verbena and hints of ambergris from the base, I was bowled over. I remember thinking "I didn't know fragrances could be this good!!?!"

    Many have made me think 'that's really good, gotta buy this' on first sniff.

    Only one has sent my head into a loop. Ambre Narguile.

    Sculpture, I was ready to slap you five on your reflection mention, but you had to go and ruin your rant with a GIT mention. lol These two cannot be mentioned in the same breath. Let the other basenote loons ride the GIT bandwagon. You and I both know GIT can't stand beside Reflection. It is easily the most polished, refined, and sophisticated fragrance I have ever smelled! This, Ambre Narguile, and Declaration Cologne are probably my best first impressions.

    lol, well, I did mention that I smelled GIT first. At the time I came across GIT, it was one of the best things I had smelled to that point.

    I admit, I still think GIT is pretty damn good.

    Most satisfying and surprising first impressions happened when I was new with niche. Santal Noble, Piper Nigrum and Eau d'Hiver were especially memorable.
