Gucci Envy.. Very sensual.. Women adore it!!!!
.................................................. ...................I'm gonna memorize your name.. and then i'm gonna throw my head away!!........:bounce:.............
Well as I said i already own and use Armani Mania and love it. Great Fragrance....but lately ive been getting bored with it and want something new. Looked into Terre D' Hermes but cant seem to find it and smell it but im still looking. Im looking for something that will be great for night wear and casual wear at the same time. The Mania is something i wear casually so im looking for something a bit sensual for night wear. Price isnt a huge issue for me i cant spend $200 on some Creed but im ok with around the $60 range.
its something like this, got to hide them from my old lady, some i leave at my office until i find more elusive drawers to store them... my 15 opened ones i put in the cooler, which she thinks is where i store my snacks and drinks, also i put some unopened boxes of 5-6 frags on my shelve display to act as decoys so she doesnt think that im hiding anyting. this pic was over a week ago, ive since added 2more BVG PH and Soirs each and couldnt resist a 100ml slate by banana rep, the wooden casing is of the same solid texture and colour of the borders of my platform bed made of solid woood, im really going to get into trouble with her soon... i can feel she's suspecting already. And i still have like 3 XSs in the office and 2 more Cool waters... its not that bad considering half the members here have well over 300 bottles... and i can finish a 125 Issey in less than 6mths.... so yeah.. i use quite alot. anyways im really glad u dig fahrenheit! i get brutal feedback from peers.... i think im going to grab 2 more Fahrenheits this month just in case. i keep hearing from ppl working in the commerical cosmetics industry that a hike in prices for mainstream frags esp the ones with high demand, is very likely b4 end year..... its really embarrasing... i mean how many of u guys actually have to be so sneaky like myself about buying frags....
i think this is about 3/5 of my entire collection of mainstreams... i have absolutely no more elusive spots to hide them....
another bad habit i have is always buying the largest bottle possible for home use, and the smaller version to bring along for longer days.....
here's my decoy
My Cooler lower deck both the ck one and be are 200ml and 125ml Issey for home use (its getting to cramp and i really have no idea how to accomodate)
upper deck, the one and be here are the 100mls (i bring the smaller bottles along with me esp during a long day, while issey is 75ml only coz its easier to bring about)
I decant all my scents and i had at least 15 more just 2weeks back, my good friends always bump a decant or 2 of which i would nvr see again... well what are friends for...
I use both the BVG PH and extreme at the same time, but found extreme to suit more occasions
my 2nd string faves.... (all large bottles, small ones are over priced)
My back ups (all large bottles, more worth it)
but back to the topic, gamecockfreak2000, u should really grab samples man, esp when u havent decided on the scents that you would probably stick to for a long time. I guess i found mine already. Trust Moltening's taste on niche..... creed's not the only one around yeah. And if u want a better desciption of Leau D Issey, anything Bvlgari, Fahrenheit and those that i have, i think i can try to give u a objective perspective. I dont stock up unless i really love the scent, and those i stock up are the ones ive been using for the longest time. Then again a heavy user may not always give the best advice, but i can try my best if u have any enquires on those ive backed up. Im not the "experimental" sort and very safe, i prefer those that apeal easily. Issey is my metrosexual scent... floral notes that are male specific, id def recomend it to u, along with bvg extreme and aqva, sorry if im repeating, but if u like mania, i think u should fid those i mentioned apealing... ok thats just my opinion really.... try as many as u possibly can

yeah ive been waiting to try Gucci Envy out of recommendations from you guys so any others that might match me? I can try and describe myself some more if you want.
Hey basenoters! I recently got into collecting fragrances, being 16, money is quite a problem so I like to only buy what I really enjoy. At the moment, I'm looking a fairly cheap scent which I could use at school, maybe everyday? Is there a scent that is affordable to the point I can use it everyday? I also want to avoid Hollister Jake, as I tried and did not really think much of it =/. Below is my collection!
Chanel Allure Homme
Acqua Di Gio
Versace Blue Jeans
Sean John - Unforgivable
Thanks for the help. Antonton ~
Hi Antonton ,
I find Burberry Brit to be very economical. You don't have to use very much and yet the fragrance is pretty decently priced.
It all depends where you live and what shops are near you. I find Perry Ellis fragrances, when discounted, to be pretty decent.
Another good buy I would recommed is Quorum Silver.
Both Brit and Silver can be used everyday in my opinion and are suitable for a highschool teenager.
Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Midnight in Paris EDP, Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.
Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.
Please PM me !
I would say Armani code or JPG Le male. Both great fragrances, I find the Armani stays close to the skin which may be more suitable for school wear as it won't offend anyone. Le male on the other hand is very strong and projects really well. Gets complimented too as well as the Armani.

Yo. Try out Chanel Allure Homme Sport. Great for school, great for everyday use. Not very cheap though.
Chicks will go crazy, brah

Definitely lucky no 6!! Very cheap online and wearable each day. Good smelling and age appropriate.
Bowling Green..Geoffrey Beene
Clubman Special Reserve....Pinaud
Don't know where you live, but all these are still available, and on the cheap. Good to see that at your age you are interested in fragrances. I started when I was around 14 years old. Happy hunting.

Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....
Man, if only these fragrances were around when I was in high school 11 years ago, I would have worn these. Haha. Allure Homme Sport (fresh, semi sweet, semi spicy, versatile for casual or formal), Bulgari Aqua (dark marine scent), L'eau Par Kenzo (citrusy, a bit airy, and sweet, the bottle looks cool too), Versace Pour Homme (citrusy, non-offensive at all, basic aquatic elements done really well without smelling synthetic), and 212 for Men (mossy, metallic, futuristic fresh). They're fresh without smelling ordinary and cheap or most importantly, offensive (especially if you've got a heavy trigger finger). Plus they can be had at reasonable prices from discount places locally or if you can borrow a parents' credit card and give them cash, they're much cheaper if you buy from scentiments.com, scentedmonkey.com or Amazon.

I would tru L'Eau Par Kenzo or Bvlgari Aqva if i were you, then try Fierce, Colden, pretty much all the Abercrombie/Hollister scents (except jake which you don'tt like (I would never wear the clothes but their scents are good)
Also, if you really want one that's killer, and ever find some extra cash, try Creed's Millesime Imperial....it's like Sean John but literally 100 times better. Virgin Island Water and Silver Mountain Water are 2 more Creeds that are very good and repectable, yet still very young and better than anything else suitable for your age group.

I think those would be inoffensive and great!
Off-Site Decants =) (updated 05/16/12)
If you don't mind mall clothing brand scents, do check out Banana Republic's stuff. Great stuff from the few sniffs at the stores I've experienced.
dont get lucky number 6 it has a nasty note in it and i dont think it projects from the 1 time i wore it. i would trade it for a sample... its 3.4oz too.
Anton. Take him up on that deal. That's a steal for a good smelling, nicely projecting cologne that all the girls in your school will love.
Thanks for the reply~!
I see Chanel Allure Homme sport was mentioned quite alot, despite the costly price, I think I might have to give it a go. How different is it from the original Chanel Allure Homme?
Better, different? I'm also looking for something more economical to use, since I am going to use it everyday

I know this comes a bit late, but you might also like:
all of them are very age-appropriate, not too common, not too expensive and have above average lasting power
Allure Sport is fantastic and very similar to the original, but it's been given a brighter, more orange, SLIGHTLY aquatic touch over the original Allure base. I prefer it and it's one of my favorite colognes.
DKNY Be Delicious for Men and Escada Sunset Heat for Men were my favourites when I was in high school.
I refuse to sink.
Chanel Allure Homme Sport, L'eau d'Issey PH or Armani Code are all safe scents and easy likeable.
I'd go with Rive Gauche Pour Homme. You'll outclass your buds with this one...
Hey guy's I was just wondering if this is to much for a 17 year old teenager to own. Do you consider my collection a good one ?
Chanel Allure Homme Sport 100ml
Chanel Allure Homme 100ml
Armani Code 125ml
Acqua Di Gio 100ml
YSL L'Homme 100ml
Le Male 125ml
1 Million 100ml
Pure Malt 100ml
Love & Luck 050ml
Creed MSI 0.7mlx3
Yes it's fine IMO.
Unless you are wearing wearing flour sacks to school and rocking pumpkins for shoes, you're OK.
Though with that wardrobe at your age, you might get away with sleeping at her place.
