Sounds like a recent, hip, release targeted at young men might be the way to go, rather than a classic. So I plugged Higher Energy into one of Michael Edwards' fragrance finders and on a search for releases from 2007 and 2008, his program suggested Curve Kicks for Men by Liz Claiborne, GMV Man by Gian Marco Venuti and Narciso Rodriguez for Him. Of these, I thought Curve Kicks sounded the best bet and it comes in a funky bottle.
Davidoff Adventure might be another possible of recent releases. Not sure if he is into surfwear but the hip brand Oxbow just release a pair of fragrances and Oxbow Essence de Surf Man might be up his alley too. Lastly, I'd also look at Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche and DSquared2 He Wood. Good luck and I am sure there will be many more suggestions to come from fellow Basenoters.
