Everybody will give you a different list of fragrances to test. You need to go out there and test a lot of fragrances on your skin, and you will come across something you really like. When you've narrowed it down to, say, three or four fragrances that really got you interested, you then research them, look up the notes, ask about their longevity and strength. You'll find many people willing to help you here if you ask about specific fragrances. Your first fragrance needs to be something you can wear to any place, at day or night. It needs to be safe but not boring. Yves Saint Laurent Live Jazz, Yves Saint Laurent L'homme, L'eau D'issey by Issey Miyake, and Polo Double Black all come to mind.
