    Default Could you list some good non-niche summer scents for a 19 y/o student?

    I own:

    Lacoste Style in Play
    Lacoste PH
    Gucci Envy
    Burberry Weekend
    Guess Man
    Givenchy Blue Label
    Musc Ravageur
    Angelique sous la pluie

    But I'd like 1 or 2 scents for the summer months. I'm kind of tired of Lacoste and burberry rotating, so I'd like some other recommendations.

    I don't want niche frags because I'm poor at the moment, I've no job =(

    So, thanks a lot fellow bnoters!

    Monsieur Balmain - wonderful lemon, dirt cheap on ebay
    Mugler Cologne - nearly as good as Creed OV
    Clinique Happy for men - always a winner
    Terre d'Hermes - a favorite round here & for a good reason. Balances popularity and sophistication perfectly. Allrounder, no brainer
    Dior -Eau Sauvage - if you like your citrus dirty
    Mark Jacobs - Splash Rain - a good rendition of "wet street in summer."
    Beene Bowling Green - for late summer, early fall. Perhaps too much at age 19, but worth a try at the low cost
    Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Aqua Motu Sometmes available quite cheap. modern synthetic rendition of "beach," pretty cool if you don't wear it too often

    Some more exotic suggestions:
    Roger&Gallet - Jean Marie Farina Extra Vieille - classic, but not too popular anymore, which makes it kind of exclusive. It's what 4711 is supposed to be.
    Acqua di Portofino - good one for dressing up Tom Wolfe like. No idea how available this is in your nick of the woods.
    Dominguez - Agua de Sandalo -a fresh take on Sandalwood, very cheap online
    Brooksfield men - sophisticated but fresh and young and not too well known. another one for the internet
    My Wardrobe
    II est de forts parfums pour qui toute matière/Est poreuse. On dirait qu'ils pénètrent le verre.

    Guerlain Vetiver ...an excellent summer vetiver; it might be a bit challenging to pull off but I say its worth a shot seeing that you are now at that college age. It can be your summer fragrance of choice for formal events.

    Its niche equivalent is MPG Racine.
