    Default GPH II or Boss Bottled

    Which one should I get as a casual everyday scent? I am a 19 year old college student and would like a nice unoffensive scent. I also like Bvlgari Pour Homme and its tea note as well. Other suggestions are welcome. Right now I have Diesel FFL and CK Euphoria, which are okay for what they are but am not particularly enamored by either. Also considering Rochas Man.

    Both do not last on my skin long enough, but I'd pick Gucci Pour Homme II by Gucci because it is more unique, IMO.

    At your age I'd probably go for Boss Bottled.

    Nothing really compares to GPH2 for me and it may come off a little odd to the people in your age group.

    Might I suggest checking out the YSL L'Homme line.

    I've smelled YSL L'Homme and its flankers and while I like L'Homme a lot, it is just a bit too sweet for me. It comes off almost like perfume at times. Some other ones I've tried and liked were Code, Brit and The One Sport.

    I think you should spend about $100 which would probably get you three bottles at FragranceNet.

    Both of these would definitely work in the "inoffensive everyday" category. However, I personally wear Boss Bottled as my office scent, and GPH II as my 'evening in'/intimate scent.

    Based on scent alone GPH II is the superior candidate in my opinion, but you may wish to save this for special occasions.

    If you find YSL L'Homme to be too sweet, then I would definitely not recommend Boss Bottled because it is likened to an apple pie.

    I would suggest GPHII.

    Personally I own and love both!

    Either one is good. I think BB might have a little "younger" feel to it whereas GPHII is more sophisticated. I would sample them both and pick wichever YOU like more. Personally, I would get the Gucci over the Boss if I had to choose one. I have both and they both serve a different purpose for me, so it's hard to say which is "better".

    Boss. Nice enough and the Gucci has no lasting power whasoever on me.

    Ordered Boss Bottled. Was able to snag the 3.3oz one for $30 from CVS after a 25% and 30% off. I think GPHII will be my next fragrance purchase. That soft tea smell is too good.

    I probably would've gotten GPHII if CVS had it though. Unfortunately they only have Gucci by Gucci and Gucci Guilty.

    Good choice. I own and like both, but I prefer Boss Bottled.

    Gucci Pour Homme II - It's versatile for any situation and is discreet. Also it's a good tea based fragrance that smells good and stands out amongst the samey designer scents on the shelves.

    I had to vote for Boss Bottled mainly because GPHII, unlike GPHI, has no lasting power. It smells good but simply is not worth it to me.

    On a sample i got from Sephora, I had great longevity with GPH II. Its one fragrance that I smelled on myself nearly all day. I used one spray close, and to the base of the neck, then another on the chest.

    Gucci PHII smells more unique, but doesn't last as long.
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    I'd choose both if I could, yet GPHII for the versatility, lightness and freshness, while Boss Bottled for maturity, consistency, persistence and masculinity.
