La Nuit De L'Homme? Unique? NEVER! =P
Not many teenagers (I'm assuming we're talking about 14-18) wear cologne daily. A lot of them simply prefer Axe, as I've seen.
However, I could recommend cK Intense Euphoria, 1 Million, YSL La Nuit, or Armani Code. A lot of these are considered "popular" or "mainstream", but one must consider the fact that the market share that a particular designer has over such a young portion of the general consumer base would render what is considered "overdone" by most middle-aged individuals "unique" amongst the young.
Code was the first cologne I ever received at the age of 16. I still appreciate it quite a bit, despite the criticism it receives. From what I can remember, I never wanted to smell like everyone else back in school, and still don't in university (college if you're from the U.S. ;P).
I guess what I'm trying to say is to maybe find him something that's mainstream for individuals aged 18-24; he probably won't use it every day, but he'll grow into it with an appreciation for proper fragrances, as opposed to the stuff that I consider to be garbage that is sold at Aeropostale, Hollister, Abercrombie, and other such companies who think that a label means everything.
