I was still in my teens the first two years of college. I remember wearing Je Reviens, Cachet, Aviance Night Musk, Tabu, and Charlie during that time. Obviously, I was all over the place!I'm sure that my first bottle of Chantilly was a gift not chosen by me.
Calandre by Paco Rabanne.
When I was growing-up, my father was the manager of a Thrifty drug store. Every day he would come home with something that the various salesmen had given him... Barbie dolls (don't I wish I still had those originals?)... Beatles albums, (don't I wish I still had those too? sheesh!). However, for my mother, he brought home every fragrance, (and makeup, skincare, shampoo, and conditioner), known to man that was selling in the store. So, I grew-up with, was exposed to, and used, (in no particular order):Interlude, My Sin, Jungle Gardenia, Chantilly, Ciara (my favourite from 16-on), Tabu, Yardley English Lavender, Jontue, Wind Song, Arpege, Ambush (my favourite from 14-16), Evening in Paris, Jean Nate... and a whole host of other scents whose names I can't, for the life of me, remember.My mother's favourite perfume was Shalimar tho, and considered all these others as 'lesser beings', , so I inherited them to play with by default. I gave most of them away to my friends.
Hi everybody! Hello! Im new around here! My favourite perfume when i was a teenager was Acqua di Gio!

I never buy anything online, could you give me a hand?Thanks!!!
For Christmas one year I wanted a very very very grown up fragrance so I asked for Tatiana.
But it made me feel very womanly at the time.

This comment brought up a follow-up question in my mind: What was your motivation for wearing scents as a teenager?For me, one of my favorites, Heaven Sent, simply smelled wonderful and clean to me. Another, Tigress, made me feel, as FooDog put it, womanly (such a good description!). L'Aire du Temps was "pretty" and I always strove to be pretty.
