    Default My bio - a recommendation?

    I am 24yo, clean cut, 'handsome', well educated, borderline metro sexual (i have a conservative look but try to have some style), business person. Definitely big on class. Looking for something to wear in the office that exudes things I mention above. I live in southern california, so warm weather!

    Cologne i have had in the past was a mixed bunch:
    pleasures for men - i liked it , it is clean and fresh. But the scent stayed the same, no complexity, wore out quick.
    drakkar - my sister made me wear it!! it smells great but i guess people make fun of it now.
    romance silver - similar to pleasures but more bite to it. I got sick of it though, too strong imo.
    Banana republic classic - nice floral and citrusy smell, even if feminine.'

    Went to sephora and tried a bunch, a couple that i liked were john varvators and lacoste (with the green bottle/box, smelled...green and citrucy). I thought dunhill (the classic one) was cool, very classy!

    If there were 2 colognes which were opposite my style they are dolce cabbana and fahrenheit!

    So yes i am a noob, trying to get educated and mature my tastes. Any help would be appreciated!

    platinum egoiste - the ultimate office scent imo!

    I would assume you wont want Eau Sauvage because of the citrus and you don't want anything Green. Those are two good ways to go about dealing with warm weather but if you don't like them then you don't like them. I always recomend Blv Notte pour Homme by Bvlgari for warm weathered offices. I think it is perfect. I think you could go with anything that is fresh and clean like you seem to be. I don't want to say it but GIT is always a solid choice. I new a person who sounds just like you and he really liked Xeryus Rouge by Givenchy. I would try that one out too. I personally love it. Good luck.. 8-)

    You can test KenzoAir next time you are out looking for frags. It's one of my favorite office perfumes. Fresh and longlasting.

    I really believe that you would like Chanel Pour Monsieur.

    Really a classy fragrance but definately inoffencive enough to pull off at any office.

    Take care, boss!

    Definitely not Chanel pour Monsieur, which smells dated.
    What about Issey Myake Intense? Strong and stylish.

    I think you'd like M7 by YSL since it's really distinct and I think you can pull it off in the office. Somewhat classy but modern at the same time.

    OR you could try Boss Bottled/Boss #6. It's really fresh in an apple/vanilla -ish way.

    Bvlgari Black too could be a choice but I think it's more of a clubbing scent than an office one.

    You should really try Channel Allure or Egoiste/Dior Eau Savage if you wanna smell classy and all that.

    You should be able to find many of these at any good department store or a Sephora
