Need cologne recommendation - Clubbing/Night

    Need cologne recommendation - Clubbing/Night

    Thread Starter 

    Hey everyone, this is my first time posting on Basenotes and I'm looking for a night/date/clubbing cologne. I'm gonna be a sophomore in college,

    and am looking for something in the range of $25-$80. I'd prefer if it isn't too well known (East Coast - America), and that tobacco is not a big presence in the cologne (preferably not at all).

     

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

    1 Million is good for that scene, but, in a club you may be fairly likely to run into other dudes wearing it.

    If you want something much less likely worn by other guys around you, but still good for clubbing (projects loudly, smells sexy) try A*Men Pure Malt or Le Male.

    Sample Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme by Chanel, you can easily find it in Sephora or Macy's. It's a projection beast, and has no tobacco in it. 

     

    By the way, welcome to Basenotes! vrolijk_26.gif

    Maybe for the clubs you go to.

    Allure homme sport Eau extreme really is a projection beast, a little too much tonka and also may not be the best scent out there but it definitely garnishes compliments and would be ideal for the night scene.

    Alright cool, thanks everyone. And what do you guys think about Givenchy Play Intense? And isn't la nuit de l'homme for an older crowd?

    OP is 19 or 20.

    I like London but not to the club for that age.

    I think these two you list here are fine for you. Try them and choose the one you like best.

    Also good ones IMO. Although the second one is out of his target range.

    I'll throw out some different ideas here:  Bleu de Chanel, Hanae Mori HM (not the HiM version) or maybe Prada Amber Pour Homme (not the Infusion or Intense versions)).

    These are nice, liked by women, and sufficiently different from some of the others mentioned.

    Also, who made the rule that clubbing must = spicy or gourmand.
