    Default Recommendations?

    Hey, I currently use Boss Elements, Pour Monsieur (Chanel), and Perry M.

    It's around christmas time, so I've decided to pick up some new fragrances. I'm 17 and I've been lookin at Kirra by Pacsun, Acqua Di Gio by Armani, Lucky No. 6, Armani Black Code, Burberry Touch, and Polo Black.

    All of my colognes seem to wear off real quick, except for the Pour Monsieur. So, I'm definately lookin for one that'll stick on me throghout the day. I was wonderin if anyone has had experience with the fragrances I listed and if they could give me any pointers on which direction I should head towards. Suggestions for other fragrances would also be nice. Thanks.

    Polo Black ain't bad, but if you want something that will last, get good ol' Polo with the green bottle. That stuff lasts a good while.

    Hello!
    some good casual wearing fragrances you should try:
    - Davidoff Echo (great metallic note)
    - Paris Hilton (yeah, forget the lame name, the fragrance is terrific)
    - Halston Unbound (great aquatic and pretty cheap)
    - Hugo by Hugo Boss (sweet and cosy)
    - Kenneth Cole New York (truly refreshing)
    - Kenneth Cole Reaction (great melon and green apple smell)

    I'm still wondering if anyone has had any experience with the colognes I listed above.

    I think my uncle wears Boss Elements. It is quite good but I don't really know anything about the sillage or longevity of this one. It could just be your skin type that is causing these scents to fade quicker. I've never worn any of those though. Sorry...

    As for suggestions...
    I would stay away from Aqua di Gio because it is too popular and it is just not worth smelling like the rest of the teenage guys. Although Black Code is very popular too, I think it is less popular and it is infinately better. I wear this one and love it. It is good for dates, night time excursions, and anything romantic. That is my opinion of the matter.

    I would go out and smell around sephora and your local department stores for some other stuff. Your choices are not bad ones, just super common. If they please your nose then by all means buy them. I would still keep a look out for some others. Here are some too look at:
    Gucci Envy
    Gucci pour Homme
    John Varvatos
    Kouros Cologne Sport
    Carolina Herrera 212
    Guerlain L'Instant
    Art of Shaving Sandalwood
    Angel men
    B*men
    Thierry Mugler Cologne

    Try those. I gave a whole rang of classes to keep things broad. You'll find all of those between Sephora and Nordstroms. Good luck.

    Milkcow - of the ones you listed I really like Polo Black, Burberry Touch, and Lucky #6...even though #6 is kinda generic.

    I also want to second some of the recommendations people have made, like Reaction, Unbound, John Varvatos, & TM Cologne. I'll also add Chanel Allure Sport and Azzaro Chrome.

    Ok, so how about some more unique smells with sillage then?

    I just looked at Aquolina Blue Sugar and it looks interesting, anyone use this yet?

    It hasn't hit my Sephora yet, but I'm eagerly waiting for this one. In the meantime, you might sniff out Lolita Lempicka au masculin.

    Try Opium pour homme by YSL. It is very distinctive, classy and lasts all day long on the skin!

    I'd also have a look at Guerlain's Vetiver and L'Instant.
