    My mom bought me some Canoe in high school. It's a nice scent, but all my friends had Drakkar Noir so I hated it.

    Got some more as gifts, but I think the first one I bought myself might've actually been Yatagan.

    For me it's when I had my first job in the eighties and I bought Dunhill Edition.

    Okay, during my college time I really like Acqua di Gio. But I noticed many dudes in my college wear them so I bought Calvin Klein Eternity for Men. Yea, that was my 1st serious fragrance. And later I found out it was too common like Acqua di Gio. So I end up smelled like other dudes walking around drenched in Eternity and Acqua di Gio (the only difference was I'm a female). Mehhh....

    The first fragrance that I ever bought for myself was Ho Hang and Bijan Men, back in the early 90s.
    Check out my blog Pour Monsieur, a no-nonsense guide to men's fragrances:

    Any fragrance that should not be worn in public, should be worn in public.

    In my early teens, around 15-16, I bought Adidas Classic/Classic Blue (the "real" frags bought with my cash followed later)

    Default Re: What was the first fragrance that you bought?

    I think it was CK One when I was around 15/16. Still have a bottle now and I still like it. Only problem is that because of this, if I'm given a fragrance as a gift it's always a CK. Being given nothing is usually preferable to most CK frags

    I think it was CKOne back at my first year at the university. My room mate was wearing it, and I thouhg it was really good. Back then

    First that I bought for myself was Gucci by Gucci pour homme. Lots of memories in that bottle. Some good, some bad. Still have a bottle though.

    My first was Sven after shave by Yardley, some 35 years ago.

    I sourced an old bottle on Ebay a couple of years ago, just for old times sake. Just as I remembered it, not half bad at all.

    In my last year of high school I bought some Sandalwood Oil from India, it was sold in 10ml bottles just like essential oils in Health Shops today. Later on I found Crabtree & Evelyn Mysore Santal EDT - nice.

    My first fragrance was Paco Rabanne's Sport pour Homme, bought it when I was 14-15 yo. I still have a half-empty bottle from my college days, which was when I last wore it on a regular basis. It is nothing spectacular but still a pretty decent grassy citrus fragrance, good for summer. Sadly it has been discontinued, I learned recently.

    Bought my first bottle of Rochas Femme when I was 20, I wore very little perfume before that. I remember the SA disapproving because she thought I was too young to wear it. It was different from anything I´d ever smelled in my life, and it was so.. me I´ve had a bottle of it ever since.

    Hard to say, probably Drakkar or Polo.

    The first fragrance I bought since my interest to this level (2-3 years ago) was Le Male

    First fragrance I ever bought was Guerlain Eau de Cologne Imperiale and many bottles later I still have a bottle of this one. I was 16 and I didn't know anyone else who had that fragrance. My peer group then were all into Brut, Canoe, Royall Lyme or English Leather.

    First I bought was Halston Z-14 in High School when it was new, I had gifts around the same time of Stetson and Polo. My best friend snagged Obsession before me which I liked also but couldn't do since my entire class was only 30 people and you just have to be different! lol

    The first one I'm conscious of buying myself is the great Egoiste by Chanel. Back in the days when it was available in the UK High Street LOL

    First one I bought myself was L'Eau d'Issey in 1996. I had been a... oh the shame... a Lynx Africa user before that

    I still really like Issey, I haven't grown out of it.
