I've been shopping around for a fresh, luxurious, clean, and even a lightly citrusy summer scent and settled on AdP's Colonia Assoluta. After testing it today, while I was really fond of the top notes I feel that as it progressed it got safer, a little more conservative, and almost too mature smelling for me.
Are there any younger guys like me (I'm 22 years old) who wear Colonia Assoluta? I hear many people saying this fragrance is one they tend to associate with old people / grandparents while many others in fact refer to it as a quintessential summer scent. I'm not sure if I was predisposed to the former opinion which is why I feel that way now or if I would've come by that conclusion naturally.
The last thing I want when I'm snuggling a pretty 22 year old girl is to evoke feelings of her dad or grandfather. I want something that inspires thoughts of freshness, elegance, and youth that works well in the summer months. Something green and herbal perhaps. I like niche frags and am looking to spend around $100. I don't want anything too mainstream. I'm thinking Nina Ricci's Signoricci might be worth a sniff?
