    CK One back in 1996-7. I would have been about 13 or 14 years old.

    Probably some kind of Avon cologne in high school. Not only did they smell good, they came in a variety of cool looking bottles (i.e., old model cars).

    Then, I probably progressed to things like Jade East, Canoe, Brut, British Sterling, and British Sterling Lemon!

    The first bottle of scent I recieved as a gift was as a teenager in the 80's, and I do believe it was either Givenchy - Xeryus or YSL's - Jazz, although I cant remember which I had first.

    Strangley enough, I dont rememebr me getting into buying scents until the early 90's, and one of the first fragrances I may of hunted out and purchased was Calvin Kleins CK One.

    From there it spiralled into a regular thing, with D&G's first fragrance, and so the story continues...

    The first fragrance I purchased on my own was, Pierre Cardin Pour Homme. I was so proud of my purchase at the time. Funny how it opened the way for my love and appreciation of fragrances.

    Polo (green)... possibly a Christmas gift now that I think about it. The first time I forked over my money at a fragrance counter was for Aramis 900.

    When I was in grade 8 (6 years ago), I bugged my dad to buy me Ferrari Black from a cologne warehouse, picked up a 125mL for $20. Was so happy I had it, it smelled wonderful and I will always have many memories of it. Now, I have Boss Bottled which is essentially what Ferrari Black dreams to be. Ferrari Black is basically Boss Bottled without the sillage/projection and longevity, a toned down version essentially. Still, will never forget it.

    My first that I purchased with my own money though, was Le Male in grade 10, another 125 mL tester bottle haha. I truly adore it, as common as it may be, it's very unique (not counting knock-offs like Cuba and Perry Ellis White), and I fall in love with the smell everytime. Will be a classic for me forever.

    As a kid in the early '80s, I loved Polo. I first tried it from a machine in the airport where you could get a spray of either it or Aramis for a quarter. I couldn't afford a bottle of it, though, so I bought myself a bottle of a knockoff called "Lancer."

    On my next trip I tried Aramis, and liked it even better. I saved up and bought myself a bottle of the real thing after a while, from the fragrance counter at Dillards. I was probably 11 years old at the time.

    Wow, that brings back memories. That was another early one for me. My oldest brother drove a nice little MG B, and it always smelled like Pierre Cardin. I have a newer bottle of it, and either it has changed, or my nose has. I still like the overall scent, but it's not so great on my skin. A big bottle of it resides in the console of my car as an air freshener.

    British Sterling was my first crush on cologne in 10th grade in the late 70's
    The First bottle that I bought after using my brothers bottle was Jovan Musk, also in late 10th grade in the late 70's
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    After trying a sample I got on E-bay, I coughed up the cash for a $14 stick of Breath of God.

    Got a FB after that. While I now have other things, I love it still.
