Hey Basenotes, I'm 16 years old, almost 17, and I've recently gotten into fragrances. Originally I had one that my mother got me for Christmas a few years back, but after checking out some more interesting frags, I've really gotten into the game. So far I have Acqua di Gio, Le Male, The Dreamer, Cool Water, and Burberry London. Although I like having a couple different options, I'm mostly looking to have just 1-3 main fragrances, 1 for warmer weather, and 1 for cooler weather. Right now Cool Water is my warm weather fragrance, which I like, although I've been considering checking out GIT, L'eau D'issey, Man au Fraiche, and maybe some of the allure and pour homme fragrances by Chanel, Gucci, and D&B. As far as cold weather goes, Le Male, is okay, and London is nice but doesn't last too long. However, I'm really looking for a winter fragrance that I really love, that I could wear often, that lasts long and projects. Some ideas right now are New Haarlem, A*men (which I have tried and like quite a bit), other Theirry Mugler fragrances, Dior Homme Intense, Boss Bottled, Rochas Man, HM, body kuoros, L'Instant Pour homme extreme, and Play Intense. Price isn't a huge deal right now, so please ignore that factor in your replies. Some other things about me... I dont like to wear anything that smells too feminine (I tried La nuit de l'homme, but found it smelling too girly for me to wear). Also I dont touch anything that smells like Abercrombie, Hollister, American Eagle, etc. because those all smell the same and everyone wears them. Although I'm not usually into anything too sweet, I could really see myself enjoying an awesome sweet gourmand fragrance. I want to smell great in both weather conditions, and yet still have a signature scent (or 2). So please, help me, what is the right choice here?
