    Default Help to find a fragrance

    Hi, this is my first post. I was wondering if anyone can help me find a fragrance for my personality. There's so many fragrances out there, and the personal at my local store isn't much of help. I'm male 30 years old, I usually wear jeans and a shirt or t-shirt and my leather jacket(not a suit and tie person). I've got lots of tattoos, and I'm a singer in a band. I've been wearing Guess Man for some time and I really like it, but I would like a fragrance with a bit more edge, more sexy to wear on a night out. Thanks in advance!

    First of all welcome aboard clarkkent!
    Reading your profile the first thing that came to my mind was Chanel Antaeus: it's a wonderful fragrance, edgy, earty of patchouly and beeswax yet with a green vibe and floral hints...
    There are indeed many others that can suit your description but then it really depends on which notes you like or not.
    Without going on niche scents, some other suggestions are
    YSL M7
    Dior Homme Intense
    Guerlain Jicky edp
    Givenchy Gentleman
    Issey Miyake L'eau bleu

    Seconding Kouros, definitely a sexy fragrance for a night out or after a show.

    I'll join the crowd and say Kouros.

    YSL M7 and Antaeus are also good, and Halston Z-14 would be an excellent bang-for-buck choice.

    I'll second YSL - M7 and Caron - L'Anarchiste. Both are unusual with LOTS of edge! Also try Gucci Pour Homme (the brown juice)...it's woody to the extreme

    I would encourage leather scents for you. I am not certain but I believe Kouros is a Leather. I would also recommend Knize 10, Creed Royal English leather, CM jockey club, I am sure others on this site can recommend more.

    Welcome
