    I"m glad to see this company here. Roma Imperiale is also a very unique scent from them, with really great drydown.

    Back in the 90's, it was the original Nautica Competition.

    More recently, the heart & base notes of Tommy Bahama and Havana by Aramis.

    Back to Black was part of my first ever niche sample purchase, and was the first one I wore, and it blew me away. Unfortunately it's too sweet for me to get away with wearing, or it would have been my first niche FB purchase as well.

    I was flipping through an issue of GQ while researching for what cologne I should buy since I haven't owned one 5-6 years. There was one magazine insert that perked up my nose. It was Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male. I rubbed that magazine insert on my wrist and I kept going back to it. The next day I went out and bought my 4.2 oz bottle. Unfortunately that love affair only lasted a few months before I decided to sell it and move on. I still wear it from time to time by either borrowing a friend's bottle or decants though. I don't think I've had that same reaction off smelling a scent strip or a magazine insert now that nothing really surprises me anymore. *sigh*

    I have 2. Actually, 3.

    1, L'homme. This got me into the whole thing. Enough said.
    2, Pure Malt. I smelled this and couldn't believe what I was smelling. It was an instant favorite. Sadly, since then, it's been going down on my list due too...
    3, Pure Havane. I honestly wasn't wow'd like I was Pure Malt, but over time I was. I am far more addicted to this than any other fragrance including Pure Malt since L'homme. Instant favorite that is staying in its place on my list.

    First time I smelled Terre D'Hermes, I was in love with it. To this day, TDH still astonishes me on weekly basis.

    Years ago (beginning of my fragrance journey), the girl I dated introduced me to this one called Hanae Mori HM. She was the most lovely and my first impression of this bottle will forever be associated with memories of her.

    For me, it would have to be Musc Ravageur. I was fortunate enough to be able to buy a sample, as I really had no desire to spend $150 (the price at the time I bought my bottle) on a fragrance without smelling and trying it on my skin. I actually bought a sample of the oil version first. Upon first sniff, I was mesmerized. After giving it a trial wearing, I was on the phone with Barney's, ordering my bottle, then having to eagerly await the arrival of my purchase.

    I've had a few. Jacomo de Jacomo (original black bottle/blue writing); Calvin by Calvin Klein (navy blue bottle); Iquitos by Alain Delon. Once I joined Basenotes, my heart strings were set abuzz by the likes of Mechant Loup, Vintage Tabarome, and Heritage by Guerlain.

    L'Heure Bleue was the first one that made me realise perfume could tell a story.

    Since then, a few highlights:

    Patou Pour Homme
    Amouage Homage
    Insolence EDP (L'Heure Bleue for the new century)

    Hahaha. Good call. I wasn't sure what to think of GIT when I first smelled it. I didn't really like it at first but one thing was certain: it was deeper and richer than any other fragrance. Love it now.

    For me, Terre d'Hermes left the best first impression on me. I was new to fragrances and needed a fragrance for office wear. TdH was among those recommended to me and I was blown away. To this day, it's probably my favorite fragrance.

    Chanel's Cuir de Russie, which I smelled only a few weeks ago, has by far left the best impression on me. The opening was good, a smoothly cluttered luxuriousness - but the drydown is...sublime. I smelled the card many times over the next few days, each time sure that I had been misremembering that magnificent unison of civet, iris, ylangylang and birchtar. But no, each time it took me off-guard to astonish me anew.

    Amouage reflection man would have scored high marks until I got the corn chip vibe from it ...surprisingly John Varvatos by JV has left the best first impression of a fragrance ever on me, and it continues to do so. Yes its linear but I love it.
