    Default Age Group of Male Fragrance Collectors

    I'll be 21 in a few months. I suspect most people on here are mid-career, but I could be wrong.

    19 physically, 30 mentally. I make frequent trips to the fragrance counter, yet my friends have yet to "get" me and my crazy hobby. People are even more blown away when they ask about my personal collection and quantity -- something that seems normal and only valid Having tackled one job as a Perfume SA, it's a slow journey and a scintillating, actualizing excursion that will forever be in my character.

    Fragrance is my alter ego, hell, it is my constant companion in life!

    29 closing in on 30 with alarming speed and clarity. I've only been properly interested in fragrances for less than a year, though. Before that it was all a blur on buying something when I was out of the old one - and only basing it on top-notes on paper. Oh, how I don not miss those days.

    18 here, and where I'm from (New Zealand) the words men and fragrance/perfume are almost never associated with eachother, regardless of age. So no matter how old I am, people don't understand my interest in fragrance. Also, there is such little availability for fragrances here- especially niche probably due to the fact that there just isn't a market for them.

    It does have its upsides though, I can wear ADG and not smell like anyone else

    I am turning 30 on October. And I don't want to think about it! Lol And what is getting on my nerves is that while I was born on October 1982, when the 1st January 2012 came, a lot of people I know they were saying to me "Hey, you are 30!"... LOL

    I see that we are a lot of people here very close to be the big 3 but refusing it! I like that they are other people like me! hahaha
