    Default Scents for young urban professionals

    I'm looking to expand my scent tastes and was looking for some recommendations.

    I currently wear L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme, Live Jazz, and La Male.

    I'm 22, male, from Chicago, and work in strategy consulting. Looking for something mature.

    Any recommendations?

    Trussardi L'uomo is quite a nice business formal fragrance. Bois du Portugal is one I could imagine as a power play formal, but in moderation...like a dab on your wrist from sampler. it would be subtle, but there.

    Wall Street by Bond No. 9! I love this fragrance. I love to wear it to important appointments. It makes me feel like a deal maker and really gets me in the zone.

    Give Kiton a try--it is a fresh, yet woody scent that exudes confidence. You feel like you are wearing a $3,000 Kiton suit even if you are not! Not too many people waer it, so you will not be one of the masses in this. I have not tried Kiton Napoli or the new Kiton Black--I am sure that they are good, too.

    The only place you can get a $3000 Kiton is at the thrift store. , but the original is very nice.

    second BdP (very strong and dominating fragrance if a fragrance could possibly dominate) and heritage is similar to this.

    Other than those... Le Male would not be something I would wear to any professional gathering. Live Jazz may work. I like the stuff but it doesn't last on me worth a damn. Oh, try it's brother, Jazz too. It's very dry and I think it would work perfectly since it's fresh and formal all in one. peace.

    I guess I sorta qualify too, since I'm a bit of a yup

    My current favorites that I wear to the office:

    Boucheron Pour Homme Eau de Parfum
    Must de Cartier pour Homme
    Creed Bois du Portugal
    Creed Neroli Sauvage
    Creed Erolfa
    Givenchy Gentleman
    Gucci pour Homme
    Guerlain Héritage
    Eau d'Hermès
    YSL Opium pour Homme Eau de Parfum

    All are pretty 'grown up' mature scents - I have some other favorites I lean more towards when going out after work or on weekends.
