    Default High school/teen scents

    Hey all, as much as I hate revealing my age, I thought I would inquire with everyone here. Coming up on the 30th of this month my school is having a homecoming dance, which to be honest I'm really looking forward to. I finally asked the girl who I wanted to go with, who is stunning by the way. I am looking for a cologne that is classy yet sexy. I have A*Men but I don't know if I would really wear it to such an event. Any imput is very much appreciated. Thanks

    Kind hard for us to pick if we dont know what you have to pick from. But I would wear A*men. I love it. Go a tad light if you do. I imagine it will be hot in there!

    My appologies for not stating this, but I have a pretty much unlimited amount of money available to me, so anything that would be good works, so long as it isn't Creed since I'm not a fan of the house.

    then go Clive Christian of course

    but seriously, for a dance? A-men? I don't think I would. Dior Homme I say.

    If you have an unlimited ammount of money then go for Geir. You WILL NOT be dissapointed.

    I would have said Geir too, but vanilla goes really awfully bad on my skin. But if you like sweetness, which apparently you do with A-men, Geir would do nicely. Better yet, get Geir AND Dior Homme. Or at least try them both.

    Because it's a high school dance, subtlety just isn't important - it's that time of life you can pretty much get away with anything, and frankly, your peers, being mostly minors will probably respond more run-of-the-mill stuff (cK, JPG, Joop!) - sorry, but that's High School...

    So the question is, are you out to impress your peers, or cause a scene? Whatever. Go smother yourself in a sweet oriental - Body Kouros, Allure, Dunhill Desire, Bvlgari Blv Notte, dance yourself silly and get sweaty...

    I was in high school not too long ago, and whether it's a high school dance or a night club A*Men ROCKS. However, I see it as more of a swinger type scent. I'm not sure I would be as inclined to wear it if I was going with a date. I'm sure it would still work well though. After some deliberation, here is my ultimate response: John Varvatos. Girls go nuts over this stuff. I have never personally worn it to a dance but I have worn it to parties and whatnot and have always gotten compliments. So basically if you are going with the girl but plan on dancing with everyone and their mom anyways (well that's what my hs dances were like) then wear A*Men, but if you plan on focusing on your date then wear Varvatos.

    Of course you should only care what your date can detect when you are slow dancing, right? No need for her to think you're trying to impress anyone else. I would go with a modest application of Jaisalmer, which besides being eminently classy and sexy is exotic, comforting, non-cloying and beyond uncommon. I'm not sure I've ever heard a bad word spoken about it here, and certainly never have in person.

    And I'd say don't form your opinion about Creed if you haven't explored its less recent and less publicized offerings, such as Vetiver (1948), REL, Epicea, etc.

    You want to smell nice, and not overpowering for your date. If you like A*Men you like orientals - I would recommend trying Armani Code (aka Black Code).

    Not a bad scent, but I bet a few others at the dance will be rockin' it.

    I recommend something which is sexy but on the other hand fresh:

    Platinum Egoiste

    I often wear this for ballroom dancing and so on! I got some compliments!!

    Have a nice evening!!

    Haha, you have to consider the culture in the United States differs greatly from that in your own country! While they are at fragrance counters, neither JPG or Joop are regularly detected in any area compared to other stuff out there. Let me make that correction for LeMale (the member), most kids your age are wearing Gio, Fierce, or Axe, and you probably knew this below your conscious if you didn't realize it outright.

    I think A*Men would be a little bit too heavy for a dance...it's good for a club, but everyone should account for the environment and context of a social school dance, which is a lot different than "the club" so often referred to on these boards. I'd say you would want to keep a fresh oriental to really distinguish yourself, and I love the recommendations of Varvatos and Armani Code. Some of the more mature suggestions people have been mentioning would be good if you were a chaperone, but as a student, keep it fun. I read some suggestions and can't help but feel that people are pitching you the things they would have worn to their dance 20 years ago! Unless you are going to impress your principal, I see no need to go formal in cologne because this is still high school, despite how epic it seems.

    I wouldn't go with a very sweet scent unless you will have air conditioning in there; if it's going to be very hot the scent might be too cloying...

    Why not go with Kouros or Yatagan and see if this girl that you are going with would still want to talk to you the next day?

    Someone mentioned Platinum Egoiste and I think it's a good scent for this ocassion and has very good longevity.

    Also, these may work:
    designer: Gucci PH, Rochas Lui, Antaeus, Zino, Baldessarini Concentree
    niche: Santal Noble, LV Patchouli or Sandalo, Premier Figuier Extreme or Philosykos, Douce Amere...

    Only problem with Armani Code is that it doesn't last long at all on me. I'm thinking I'll go buy a bottle of Geir later today, my first impression blew me away when I smelled it.

    Default Re: Colonge to wear to a highschool dance

    I'd go Burberry Brit if it were me. Clean and fresh, yet not boring, and not trying too hard! I tend to save the more exotics for times when folks wouldn't suspect I bought something for a "special occassion," but that's just me. (And, Ive really come to like BB recently after not thinking much of it originally.) As to Geir, I guess I'm alone in not thinking it's all that great.

    Default Re: Colonge to wear to a highschool dance

    Haha, another high schooler, yes. First off, I would like to see what you have to work with so far so I can account for your tastes etc. But A*Men/Geir should be fine. My Homecoming is on the 30th too and I have not the slightest clue what I am wearing to it. Musc Ravageur...? hmmmmm... nah. Decisions decisions. I'm thinkin Bois du Portugal will class the shit out of them, but you don't like Creed so yea, nvm.

    Well, just don't wear Polo Blue or Axe. Or, god forbid, Tag...

    John, I've come to suspect that may be the case, largely due to the reviews of europeans and Americans at this site - I'll admit I'm very anti-Joop! and JPG, but have often wondered if I might be better disposed to them if I lived in a location where they were not ubiquitous or associated with the culture they attach to here. I can't deny, both scents are not unpleasant, and I very frequently find myself trying Joop! just to see if it's as disagreeable as I remember it to be. And then I find myself continually sniffing my wrist, but the associations to the scent just put me off... anyway, just to say I don't mean to knock Joop! or JPG wearers...

    ^ that's absolutely true. When my rommates GF got home JPG, that was the first time i'd experienced it, and I thought it was ok. Joop! I just plain dislike, and i've never smelt it on ANYONE. Makes me wonder how I would feel about AdG if I were in Europe.

    Thumbs up Re: Colonge to wear to a highschool dance

    No need to wear anything too complex or elegant. Someone mentioned Burberry's Brit, which is a nice choice.

    As I've said many times before, Acqua di Gio is to America what Le Male is to Europe.

    To be honest, I like Le Male and not Acqua di Gio. But I live in the US, and Le Male is definately not as prevalent as Acqua di Gio is here. Le Male is still popular, though, but not to the extent that it is in, say, the European Union countries. I've smelled Le Male on quite a few people here in Fort Wayne, but not to the far-reaching extent that I smell Acqua di Gio and all the AdG clones.

    Still, I'm curious about how Gaultier2 will sell here. As we all know, a $5 million+ ad campaign doesn't always guarantee success (case in point: Egoiste).

    Guess Man, though it may just be another "fresh aromatic" scent that you'll be smelling a lot of. I wouldn't wear A*Men to a dance. I think you said you want classy.. Chanel Allure! Though it doesn't strike me as a dance smell, more like a fancy date smell. Platinum Egoiste would probably be great. Or you could try Kouros. =D

    I've narrowed down my list of Homecoming scents:

    Geir (It's pretty good, but its light and sweet which is good cuz it is hot in those gyms)
    M7 (Good fall scent, kinda spicy, kinda sweet hooray masculinity)
    Allure (Fresh, sweet, soft peppers, awesome scent overall)
    Bois du Portugal (Classy as a coooool cat. a reaaaaal cooool cat)
    Musc Ravageur (Just to eff with some people's dates )
