    Default Playful Male Frag

    Hey Guys and Gals;

    My first post here, an if you dont mind me saying: this is a great website.

    Anyway onto the real question i wanted to ask:

    I need some reccomendations of fragrances which connote playful, active and youthful aromas. I am only 16 but i do own some more mature frag's, however somedays i feel like smelling more like a 16 year old male. In saying this is there a fragrence which meets these requirements but still stands out in a crowd? Is such a thing possible, im new to the world of fragrence connoisseur's.

    I have tried scents such as Lacoste and Adidas but frankly, they smell like insect repellants.

    Thank you very much, in advance, for any help.

    Sincearly,

    Matthew

    Hi there Matthew,

    I think for a 16 yr old Jovan Musk for Men is a classic.

    Play by Comme des Garcons?

    Hey Matt,

    Do try Bvlgari Aqva or Leau D Issey Pour Homme, both are versatile and suitable for most age groups.

    An outdorrsy, woody, or green scent might do you well. Geir, Devin, Diesel Fuel for Life, Farenheit 32, and Beyond Paradise for Men all come to mind.

    Paul Smith London and Joop Rococo for Men seem playful to me.

    I second L'eau d'Issey and Fuel for life and would like to add Chanel Allure Homme Sport or good old Acqua di Gio.
    I don't know which Lacoste you tried but maybe Style in Play suits you well?
    Not that popular here on Basenotes, but a young one definitely is DKNY Be Delicious Men.

    Two of the most playful in my mind are Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier and Red Delicious by DKNY. I must mention that while Le Male is one of the sexiest and playful fragrances of all time, it's best in small amounts as it's VERY strong. One spray is by far enough - its a sillage monster.

    I think Tommy, by Tommy Hilfigger, smells playful and young.

    I think some of the Samba fragrances are what you should consider, and they are super cheap. Kiss is a powdery licorice. Kiss Me is a lime gourmand. Sexy is fruity with gentle woods. Nova is a minty rosewood. French Kiss is a very subtle spicy musk. Red is a cherry skin musk. I didn't like Viva, even though I tried it a few times. Heat is quite nice, with a spicy yet buttery quality.

    I don't think one spray is enough. Do stop at three though. It is a strong scent. I like DKNY red delicious as well , but its longevity is quite a disappointment.

    Try, Lacose Essential or Red Style in Play.

    Go with anything CDG synthetic. That stuff is super fun in an eccentric way.

    I also think that Dzing is very playful... when one recognizes the circus notes...
