    I bought this bottle back in 2000 and the only fragrance that I wore for nearly 10 years! Crazy right?

    Mine was Polo Crest, which is now discontinued. I bought it in the early nineties, when I was in high school. I found a decent substitute in Chevignon, which is close enough that it takes me back to those days.

    Polo Crest was an early one of mine, too, although I was somewhat older. My first was Givenchy Gentleman. I think that my GF may have bought it for me - not sure if I remember.

    But I may have bought Brut before that. Those two were my staples for years.

    Mine was a frag that I cant remember the name of. What I do remember is that it cost me a weekends worth of work as a young lad. It was made by a company called 'Nine Flags' and it was a purple colour in a rounded bottle with a long neck and silver top. This was around 1971.

    For me, it was not a purchase but a present: Salvadori Dali PH for my 14th birthday anniversary

    The first bottle of cologne ever given to me was something called "Little Drummer Boy" that had a wooden drum cap with tiny drumsticks attached. Although the packaging tugged at the hearts of parents to buy it for their kids, the cologne itself was strong and unpleasant.

    My first purchase of a bottle was Calvin Klein's original Calvin in the 1980s.

    My first bottle was given to me, by my father, because he had bought a bottle of this after many years of using other fragrances, and he then found his tastes had changed and he didn't like it so much.

    Ralph Lauren Polo.

    It brought me out in a rash

    Depends on how you look at it.

    When I was like 8,9 or around there my sister's boyfriend then husband abondoned an English Leather bottle at our home. This was the late 70's so you know it was still the classic E.L. I don't really recall wearing it but I did rub down my banana seat bike with that stuff, I thought it was the coolest thing to do with some great smelling stuff.

    Oficially though my first cologne was'nt till the early 90's when I got myself a Davidoff mini set with the usual suspects-Zino, Cool Water and I've forgotten the rest.

    I would'nt get back into the scent game until about two years ago.

    Joop! Pour Homme.

    While reading some threads on a forum, I saw a guy who said that that cologne brought him some lady attention therefore next day I went out in town and bought it.

    That happened, in the summer, 2 years ago.

    The first bottle i ever bought was Chevignon lol. This was around 93/94 when i was about 9 years old.
    I had perfumes before that though, bought by my parents.
    A perfume i meaningfully bought was Blue Jeans by Versace. At the time, it was the Tuscan Leather.

    Crabtree & Evelyn Extrait of Mysore Sandalwood Early to mid 80s.

    In the 70s I used to buy Mysore Sandalwood Essential Oil (or borrow my father's Brut & 4711).

    In 1988, when I was 14, I bought Jazz by YSL and Cool Water by Davidoff, but I can't remember which was first. I think it might have been Jazz.

    I'd been stealing my step-dad's Brut and Old spice up till that point...

    My first bottle was Cerruti 1881 given to me as a gift by my parents while I was in highschool. The first bottle I bought myself was Dune on my first year of uni.

    Cuba Gold, a gift from my uncle in my 14s. I love this stuff until now, and this explain my Love for Le Male today (my favorite of all time)

    I am pretty sure it was Sport de Paco Rabanne. I bought around 1996, I believe, as I was 13 yo. I bought it because I was entering adolescence and suddenly some of the other boys started wearing fragrance. I liked this one at the store -- the grassy, zingy notes. A pretty good one for a first fragrance, I still think.

    Activist from the Body Shop in 1998. Pretty good stuff (until the bottle broke in a friend's car).

    Mine was Hugo by Hugo boss back in 1996 (i was 12yrs old). Bought it blind at duty free on the way back from a trip to Europe. I think I still have some left somewhere, needless to say I didn't like it that much.

    I got Chanel Antaeus as a gift in 1981 and wore it for years. Looking back it seems like a funny choice for a 17 year old boy, but i loved it! I have to imagine it's affected my perfume sensibilities even today.
