    From what I can remember.. I think it was Chap's by Ralph Lauren back in the early 90's. I was quite young.. maybe 7 or 8, and we had just moved out here. The city I live in was new then and there was virtually nothing built here, but there was a Kmart. They always sold 3.4 oz bottles of Chap's for like 7 or 10 bucks, something really cheap.. splashes though, not sprays. I remember though as I got older I ended up spilling it down the sink and not liking it, find it too strong and too mature smelling. I regret that now because it's pretty hard to find, and I think it smells amazing.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    The first one I can really remember getting is Safari. I was probably between 3rd-5th grade when my mom bought that for me (mid-90's). It was a scent that a father of one of my best friends had on his counter, and I remember it well when my mom gave it to me. I've long sense lost that bottle, but I want to buy a new one. Though a new one will likely be nothing like the version from back then, it should be interesting to try. The bottle has probably been sitting in a box in my parent's attic since the late '90's, so who knows how that's affected the juice?

    There are a few other landmark fragrances that stand as important icons in my fragrance journey, but this is by far the first i can remember.

    The first one I ever applied was Dunhil Edition when I was 7, this was my father's signature scent, there was an empty bottle,
    I broke it, and I rubbed the inside against my cloth.

    The firts ever I bought for myself was a cheapie, called Lexus by Christine Darvin when I was 12, it was marvellous back at that time, but now
    it is only a cheap synthetic.

    I wore most of my father's stuff from aged 6 & up.

    First perfume I bought myself was either some Boss, Joop or Chevignon when I was 6.

    Chevignon notes:

    Top note young and fresh:
    Wild mint - Basil - Bergamot

    Preserved nature in the green leaves which warm under the Tunisian sun, Oregano and Rosermary.

    Adventure in the middle note:
    Cedar and Patchuli, Canadian Pine

    Nostalgia with the Virginia Tobacco, the Russian Leather which enrobe the bottom note with authentic and virile

    The first one I bought for myself was Ralph Lauren Polo - that would have been about 20 years ago, when I was around 19-20 years old.

    For sure it was Drakkar Noir as a requested Christmas gift from my parents. I remember in my circle of friends Polo and Paco Rabanne were popular, too, but Drakkar was definitely king! Especially being in high school in the early 80's when it came out, it was indeed ubiquitous.

    Chaps by Ralph Lauren... basically the only thing available in the mid 80's, besides Brut. Dabbed it on while in the store and remember the cashier gave me a compliment.

    In 1989, I was in 5th grade and remembered saving my lunch money my parents gave me each day for a 1oz splash bottle of Davidoff Cool Water.

    I used to spray my father's signature scent Fahrenheit in the mid 90's before going on dates with the high school girls. Didn't care for petroleum smell it opened with but adored fresh cucumber that followed (knew zilch about violet leaf back then). Then I grew older but, apparently, dumber because my first purchased bottle was infamous Aqua di Gio (don't judge, I didn't know better:-)

    My 1st real fragrance was - as a gift - "Mens Club" from Helena Rubinstein.

    Later my first real men's fragrance series - self bought - was in the early 1970s "Etienne Aigner No. 1"

    The first fragrance I bought myself was Azzaro Chrome Legend.

    The first fragrance I remember using would be my fathers old bottle of Cool Water aftershave. The vintage stuff was strong! The AS is stronger than many EdTs today.

    probably Dior Fahrenheit, but I do not have 100% sure ...
