DG Light Blue (summery fresh scent)
Guess Man (fresh)
Polo Double Black (night time wear)
Bulgari Soir (night time wear)
Burbury Britt (anytime)
On a side note, I go to school in Syracuse where it snows (no exagguration) everyday. So i prefer scent that I would be able to wear in a cold environment that would be "dark and sexy"-ish haha. I'm looking for another everyday / versatile scent, and so far the only one I have in mind is Hypnose Homme by Lancome. Any suggestions or tips guys (and gals ;] )?
Thanks a lot
not all, but majority of "dark" sensual scents are a tad too offf tangent for college?. I would say Fahrenheit, but u may like many others(excluding me, coz i die by fahreheits)find it a little "old faasioned" or "rubbery". since u use the soir do u find that dark and sexy?im aking coz ive got a couple of soirs so i may roughly get ur idea of dark and sexy and for college wear......
im a fan of bvlgari and if u like soir for a night wear, im presuming ur daily activities would require a more casul scent. why i want to make this clear is that different age groups have diffrent impressions of sexy. and different requiremets. i thought ADgio was sexy when i was ur age till i found out half the world was wearing it along with me. Considering ur smellling good more for the ladies, then ADgio would be safe, its the typical scent a lady would easily feel atracted to and being 18, im sure u wanna smell ur best with the girls.
Other then smelling a little cucumberish and diluted, itslongevity is poor to boot. like i mentioned in previous threads, im using them on my sheets, pilows towels etc. coz they wouldnt last over4 hours.
I decided that after2 bottles of bvlgari aqva, maybe reverting back to ADG would be nice,the rest is history. Try Bvlgari Aqva, its longevity surpasses most marine scents by miles.though its a tad richer than ADG and a little less fresh smelling and dries down to a nice atural mossy scent....which i reckon would be nice for colder time and its got a warmess to its lingering notes
Many memebers would suggest Gucci envy, but then, its catching up with the younger crowd and chances are u may have a classmate wearing that too. I call it the modern classic, coz it allows a younger person to enjoy the woodsy and slightl powdery sillage which is how most 60s to late 70s classics used to smell like, just lackig the all important musk in devilsht amounts.
I usually recommend Bvg Extreme and aqva for those looking for college scents, since both are versatile. i;ll skip extreme, since the soir has the similar Darjeeling tea base.
check Solo by loewe, it citrus based bu ive worn it to semi formal occasions countless times.
last but not least, i must mention Leau Dissey, like i am so used to saying already, its my metrosexual scent, floral yet gender specific.
as with all advice, sampling first at ur local frag haunt b4 buying is he best option, if those u want to sample are not availabe, u can always hit the forum' market scetion
all the best
