Hi there and welcome
I'm quite new too and I the best suggestion I can come up with is to find a shop and go nuts with the testers. Spray it on your skin and have a sniff once in a while for the rest of the day. I've found out that a lot of people judge a fragrance just when the alcohol has evaporated but most fragrances change somewhat within an hour. I happen to walk by a shop every day and on my way home I used to test 4-6 fragrances. If you do that for a week or two you should have tried A LOT of different ones and most likely have some favorites. When you have a list of faverites you might want to bring a female to the shop and test the favorites so you don't pick one that women hate.
