    I have a boy your age, so I cannot probably give you the sort of reply you desire..
    But, quality-wise, you are best off with the Tommy or the Diesel. Also, they're not "too old", and give that Platimum to your grandfather!

    Personally I like the D&G the most, but you should wear whatever makes you feel confident. Even the Platinum Egoiste. Never too young for any fragrance imo

    We can suggest our preferences to you, but it will in no way reflect what the young lady you're wanting to attract will like. You should choose something YOU like, something that speaks to you and inspires and represents your mood/feelings. Something that compliments your personality and makes you feel comfortable in it. Because fragrance speaks to us all differently.

    Dude, you posted in the Female Fragrance Discussion forum asking how to score with the daughter of some family friends?



    Personally, I find that obscene; you really should have posted in the Male Fragrance forum.

    I like the Egoiste the most of the lot but then again, I can be pretty curmudgeonly for a 22 year old guy.

    Pick the one you like the most if it is also unlikely to make her turn and run for the hills in disgust--it is always harder to talk to women when they are sprinting away from you...

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Yeah, Axe/Lynx is just like the commercials, hot babes all around!

    Reading through this thread is a hoot -- mostly because it is about 50 requests merged into one GIGANTIC plea for help escaping the Land of Male Celibacy.

    Of course, it goes without saying that your fragrance is very low on the list of what will attract a woman. (Although, drenching yourself in something rancid can and does scare off women who may otherwise be charmed by your looks and personality) Wear what you like and use it sparingly. We are only partially animals, we won't be attracted to you if we can smell you across the room. However, if we already like you enough to lean in close to whisper in your ear, it is a nice bonus if we then discover that you smell nice.


    I am totally cracking up at the number of references to Drakkar Noir. I'm 40, and just about every woman I know of my age group has had a two-stage experience with DN....

    1) Fab boyfriend wears it! Doesn't it smell sexy? It's the BEST SMELL EVER!

    inevitably evolves into

    2) Douchebag ex wore that crap. Stupid jackass and his overpowering cologne. What a loser. I totally need to meet some new guys. And, if I never smell DN again, it will be too soon.

    I'm new to this whole fragrance thing and I don't venture to the men's side of things often, but yesterday I tried Guerlain's Derby and I looved it.

    My sister an equine veterinarian and her fiance trains race horses and it just subtly and yet immediately evoked all those lovely barn scents of hay and leather that they both seem to carry with them.

    Oh that is so true!

    For me, ultimately any frag can be ruined if I start to associate it with a a person I'm not fond of - regardless of how much I used to love that perfume. Was I ever attracted to a man because of his scent? Maybe, but that was when he came out of a gym sweating and not wearing cologne.
    And as for men's fragrances - I really like the ones I would be wearing myself (and I do that occasionally ).

    Ok ,here are my 2 cents. I recently bought my husband the new men's Gucci. ( Grey bottle )
    Firstly, it's so sexy to watch your man pull off the stopper- you really do need to pull it off - quite manly . Then the smell is gorgeous, deep and incensey . Smells like a real man. : D

    I could use some general suggestions what fragrances fall into the 'sexy' category and are appropriate for my age group (21) and appeals to women in my age bracket (again let's say 20-25). Then I can try some and find one that I like, thank you very much. I have Divine L'Homme de Coeur and could get La Maison de Vanille's Moai, any thoughts on those?
    Thanks.

    Welcome, Sundance J. Smooth! I'm not familiar with either of those scents, but as you can see from reading this thread, women's tastes are individual so there's no point in trying to please everyone, or really anyone but yourself (until you find that special girl who says, "But baby, I just love David Beckham Instinct!"). Have confidence in wearing what you like. This is the sexy and appealing scent that chicks dig.

    I gave my brother a bottle of Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme for Christmas and he says women follow him around when he wears it. I've noticed that he wears it now for all the "special events" or times when he really wants to make a good impression.

    My ex-boyfriend used to wear Giorgio Armani's Armani and it was pure magic on him.

    The security guard in the building where I work wears something called Bakkhur which he bought in Dubai. As far as I'm concerned it's the most perfect scent ever created. When I walk into work, I absolutely must smell his neck. Since he's super tall, he has to bend down and let me get my fix. I close my eyes and inhale deeply, get a huge smile and thank him. Then we both laugh and go our way. The last time he went to Dubai, he brought me back some and I swear, I have it in my safe now.

    My current boyfriend wears John Varvatos' John Varvatos. Something about that one really works on his skin. Maybe because he spends a lot of time in the sun or something, who knows. I can't resist leaning over and sniffing him when he's wearing it. He used to think I was leaning in to tell him a secret.

    Good luck! I hope you find your magic potion soon!

    The thing is, I just want to know what qualities are generally 'sexy' in a fragrance... chocolate, as in A*Men or vanilla as in Pi? Or just generally any sweet fragrance? Anyhow, I am going to try YSL Rive Gauche, M7 and Body Kouros, Chanel Antaeus, Egoiste, Platinum Egoiste, Givenchy Pi, Mugler A*Men, Dior Eau Sauvage, Boucheron Jaipur Homme and Guerlain Habit Rouge, Gucci Pour Homme II... unless some of those are too old for me or for girls my age anyhow (20-25).
    Thanks for the helpful input!

    So true!
    I spotted a bottle of his1872 at Marshall's ( or was it K-Mart?) for $9.75
    But it was supposed to be part of a set: 1872, Number One and X for Men!
    I complained to the manager but he wouldn't let me have it for less than five bucks so I had to pass.

    I am amused as I sit here reading through this thread realizing this is certainly a question many male Basenoters would love to have answered, and it's a fun thread. Many thanks to all the women who've weighed in here to give us a glimpse into the theoretical secret answer to help us find the holy grail of men's fragrance.

    I'm now a mature enough guy to realize this is an unanswerable question. The reality is there is no simple answer. There are probably as many answers as there are women, and it would take a gigantic poll of thousands of women to see if any one scent, or even just a handful got a universal thumbs up from women. And if there is a scent you absolutely love, if you don't like the guy, you'll just like the way he smells.

    Just be a gentleman, find a scent that works for you and the rest will follow. Just don't over do it.

    There is no secret answer to be found. There are always a handful of newly introduced men's frags that are "hot" and on women's minds at any given time, but they come and go.

    Having said all that, I am a fool for any women who can wear Angel well. Turns me into a speechless 15-year-old every single time.

    Dior does it for me

    Dior Eau Noire.....my fav....so dark and smoky
    Dior Higher
    Fahrenheit

    And Drakkar Noir....probably for a younger guy

    I haven't had the pleasure of smelling many mens fragrances.... but I like a mans fragrance to be slightly sweet - musky - with a bit of spiciness to it...creamy.....incense MMMmmmm

    Fragrance as a whole does it for me though, ......many a time I have walked past a guy and the scent of him has made me gasp....sometimes I even get flushed..if you know what I mean LOL

    I would recommend any guy to just try different fragrances and see what suits YOUR skin, wear it for a day and if you can't stop sniffing yourself 'coz it smells soooo good, go with it

    EDIT:- Adding Kenzo Power - very sexy

    My fellow horn dogs, NOW will you believe those who say that it really is a matter of individual taste??

    I would recommend any guy to just try different fragrances and see what suits YOUR skin, wear it for a day and if you can't stop sniffing yourself 'coz it smells soooo good, go with it
    Yeah, this. Just a fine smelling man. Yums.

I know what I like when I smell it on a specific person, but usually no more than that. There are masculine fragrances I like in the bottle which don't translate over to chemistry on the person. The reason I say this :-):

    My ex-husband smelled good *only* in Canoe. There were plenty of fragrances I liked better on a tester strip, but none smelled better on him.
    My brother-in-law wore a fragrance I thought smelled very nice. When I asked what it was, I was stunned to find out it was BRUT. How that stinky stereotype in a bottle could have taken on such a magical transformation, I'll never know. But it did. My current SO had a bottle of it, and it reeked on him. He smells perfect in Eternity for Men. I've tried many of the leather fragrances I adore on him, and none have worked - they just don't smell right on him, and actually stink :-(

    BUT, I don't mind giving someone a direction in which to start testing - at that point, they're on their own, and whether my nose preferences work on him, who knows? As long as he understands there is no magic bullet, no universal aphrodisiac, I don't mind exploring the sensual qualities of masculine fragrances much as we do with the feminine. I think what sets so poorly with women on this board is the way the query is often worded, and the assumption that comes through behind it - to find a fragrance which universally turns women on, like a weapon to use to get what is wanted. That is very unsettling. I believe it irritates us because it displays a lack of insight and understanding of women. But the question of sexy fragrances shouldn't be taboo, as it's a special aspect of perfume. I, too, want to wear something my SO finds exciting. I think a permanent thread is a good idea with such an enduring question. I'm one who'd like to explore this arena more, except for fear it would start a barrage of inanity like "What would make you take your clothes off on the first date?"

    I find Sandalwood extremely sensual, more so than musk, perhaps because musk notes are artificial now and don't have the power of the original. I have to take musk fragrances case by case. I also find leather to be a sensual note. Patchouli is iffy for me - if it smells too much like Patchouli, I don't like it, but when it's modified and submerged, more tobacco than patch, I find it sensual. I also find boozy notes sensual, especially the one in Idole de Lubin. I adore lavender in a fragrance, but don't find it so much sexy as appealing. As a rule, I like earthy, leather, and fresh fragrances. Coumarin is usually a turn-off for me, as is a blatant gourmand. I don't have much experience with men's fragrance because I've never been around a man who's a fragrance lover. I would love to be around one who is and be able to explore the sensual aspects of them together.

    My list (which is liable to change tomorrow):
    Vetiver Extraordinaire
    Vetiver- Guerlain
    Eternity for Men
    Idole De Lubin
    Muscs Koublai Khan
    Opone
    Czech & Speake 88
    Jicky
    Kolnisch Juchten
    Un Cedre - Serge Lutens
    Black Aoud
    Dzing
    Musc Ravageur
    Tam Dao (maybe Costes, too)
    Piper Nigrum
    Santal de Mysore

    What a great post. Intelligent and balanced...........

    What interests me is how much do we really know what we like? ,and how we are impacted by the subtlties of a given scent. So much is happening at a sub-concious level, how much do we really know.........

    It is 100% subjective, no matter how intelligent and balanced a review/reply is given. But the fact that people are still trying to get a handle on a perfume that will attract someone actually denotes a lack of intelligence to me, nothing personal. People attract people.

    Sacrilege here, but attraction has nothing to do with the cologne a man wears. Besides the obvious personality/physical-emotional attraction thingy, women are attracted to the way a man REALLY smells. His own personal odour. It's pretty primal. And how they look- not whether they are handsome or not, but whether or not we can, on a subconscious and primal level, detect whether or not they have features similar to ours, which means we COULD be related. Which would not be good for the propagation of the species, whether or not we even want to do that.

    That said, a showered & yummy smelling man who takes pride in his grooming is usually a GOOD thing

    I can love his cologne and want get close enough to sniff while having no sexual interest in the man himself. Or I can find the man very sexy, while having no attraction at all to his cologne. They're just not all that related for me.
    That's what I had to say back in January, and I still feel the same way, but I can see that from a man's point of view, wearing a fragrance that makes me want to at least stay close enough to get a better sniff, even if I'm ONLY attracted to the scent and not the man himself, is more desirable than the alternative. So...in that vein...I love the scent of patchouli on a man. Smells like satyr.

    My fellow horn dogs, NOW will you believe those who say that it really is a matter of individual taste??

    If not, please imagine the following scenario:

    There are five incredibly hot women who regularly post here. All five answer that they blush at the weak-at-the-knees erotic effect a certain man's fragrance has on them.

    But of course each has a different choice and is indifferent to all others.

    #1 Adores men who wear L'Heure Bleue by Guerlian or Bandit by Piguet.

    #2 Is wild about Brut. She stops strangers whenever she sniffs it and engages them in conversation-- at the least.

    #3 Has been known to bite men who wear Rive Gauche Pour Homme, even at work.

    #4 Swoons at Pi.

    #5 Dumped her fiancee at the altar and eloped with the minister because he wore Old Spice--they now run a mission in Sudan.

    Now gentlemen, isn't it better to ignore all this and buy what makes YOU feel good and confident

    OR

    Would you be nuts enough to buy all 5 and wear them on rotation?

    ( Damn! I hear a chorus of YES!!---- I really should write advertising copy )

    *sigh*,

    Mario

    Mario,
    It might help get the answer you want if you remember that your chance of ever meeting even one of these ladies is about one in a billion.

    I agree that those looking for a magic bullet to attract women are mis-guided, of course....... Howwever, I do think that it is foolish to discount the power that a scent has to both attract others, and make oneself feel attractive. I know for certain that some scents affect my mood, and then in turn , my demeanour.

    I was reading recently that it is only our sense of smell which is directly connected to the central nervous system. Smell is dealt with in the Limbic system, whereas sight, sound, touch and taste enter through the Thalamus ( a more indirect route.)

    I don't discount smell at all. Personally, when I get close to a man, I can smell "him". The smell of his skin, the smell of his hair and the smell of his sweat. And I know right away if I want to get to know this man better. Too much cologne is a turn off and gets in the way of that. That is why I love the gym so much. Not extreme body odour, but that "musky" smell that only men have. My super sensitive nose, a blessing and a curse

    Taste in colognes & perfumes is 100% subjective though. What works for you might not work for me. That was my point. A magic "Cologne of Attraction" is the stuff of fairy tales.

    Good morning, 3xasif! Just adding my voice to yours -- I don't completely discount scent either. But I think that if you are attracted to someone, you will be attracted to them whatever artificial fragrance they wear or don't wear. If you are not, then perfume is also beside the point. If you are attracted to somone and they are wearing a fragrance you love, then yay!
