    Default If you had to pick 1 cologne for a high school boy (15), which would you choose?

    Hey, I'm 15, and my name is Max. I go to high school in Canada (grades 7-11), and I'm in grade 10. I'm wondering if you could go back in time to when you were in high school, which cologne would you have worn knowing everything you know now? Please explain a bit why. If you're in high school, then tell me what you think is best and why. Thankers.

    Still in high school, I'd say try Fuel for Life by Diesel. I literally get atleast 2 or 3 compliments a day when I wear it. Pretty much anything that's fresh and/or sweet without smelling too "old-man"ish will be your best bet. Try Roma Uomo by Laura Biagiotti and Allure Homme Sport by Chanel also.

    I didn't wear it in high school, but I wish I knew about Kenneth Cole Reaction so I could wear it there. One of my concerns in high school was projecting too much when I wore cologne, so I barely wore any of my full bottle (DKNY Be Delicious for Men) or my decants. Reaction holds close to the skin and is incredibly youthful and vibrant.
    I refuse to sink.

    Versace Blue Jeans is a good choice for a 15 year old

    Well, if we're being honest here, I probably would have worn something like Acqua di Gio or A&F Fierce or Hollister Jake or [insert popular fresh scent], quite simply because that's what girls of that age tend to like. I remember what I thinking about.

    [EDIT]: Versace Pour Homme might be a good option for you. It has some character, but it won't scare off the natives.

    I would still have worn my nicer scents during non-school hours.

    Yeah, Fierce would be a good choice too. Especially since he's in Canada, where I understand it's not quite as common as it is over here in the US. Of course, it's a bit harder to find too.

    Honestly I rarely wear these because even girls my age know what they are and are kind of turned off by that fact :P

    You are very right :P, at least I think you are. Fierce isn't common at all, here.

    Allure Sport.

    Super sexy and girls love it... long longevity... superb sillage without being overbearing.....and extremely versatile. I think its what Fierce wants to be.

    How do you expect a 15 year old to pay $90 for cologne?

    I would go with a classic - Habit Rouge EDT by Guerlain. It smells fantastic, and the drydown will have the girls nuzzling closer for a sniff.

    I second this. If Fierce is kind of hard to get in Canada, that could add to it's "cool" factor.

    Whatever you get Max_Yeah, learn to go easy on the trigger. I had a horrible experience at your age with some slop called Hai Karate.

    Let us know what you settle on.

    Sorry, rechecked the title and says had to pick one. Went ahead and listed these anyway hehe :

    > Almost anything from Lacoste. Try Booster and 2000 (if you can find one), these I've tried (2000 of course I finished a whole bottle, along with Lacoste Eau de Sport Vivifiante), heard Style in Play is not so bad too.

    > Bvlgari Aqva, most aquatics are safe choices for any age range (and IMO Aqva's a step above than most in the genre).

    > Banana Republic Slate

    > Hope no one in your school is using L'eau Bleue D'Issey PH as most would gravitate towards the original Issey Miyake PH, you might want to be on the safe yet unique side.

    > Paul Smith Story

    > Nautica Blue

    > Angel Schlesser Homme (if its available in your area)

    > Estee Lauder Pleasures for Men (ladies seem to like this a lot)

    > also Paris Hilton for Men (blue swirly bottle), but you might be embarassed to say it in public

    Hello Max, (badass name BTW) if you want a sweet distinct attention getter look no further than Theirry Mugler's A*Men.

    Did you read the part of the thread where it says he's 15 A*Men for a 15 year old would wipe out the whole class, and can't be worn during the hot months, so it's not useful

    I'd recommend 212 Men, My personal favorite Green/ Tea smell

    If Fierce isn't common.. GET IT! Not going to lie, it's a perfect compliment getter and you'll stand out since no one wears it.
    I have: Davidoff Relax, Dior Homme Sport, Boss Selection, Azzaro Visit, and Creed MI (will provide # on bottle for verification) available.

    Looking for the following: DG The One, Himalaya, YSL L'Homme, John Varvatos (not vintage) Canali For Men or Paypal.

    No, I don't read thread titles or posts and just type random non-sequiters, and leave rationality up to the interpretation of the reader.

    I wore A*Men when I was 15 and it got me more compliments than every other fragrance I've ever worn combined. And it's not like he lives in a tropical climate where it would get extremely cloying. Although A*men is not for everyone it is worth a sample, and is a great addition should you decide to ever own more than one cologne.

    I would choose Mugler Cologne

    Reasons why:
    1) It smells good
    2) Not too expensive, and relatively easy to find
    3) Versatility. Can be worn anywhere at any time.
    4) It's a safe scent that won't offend, which is important in a closed setting such as a classroom

    I say go for Escada Sunset Heat. Tropical, vibrant, young and playful. Plus it comes in a really nifty slim bottle so it's easy to carry around.

    otherwise, if you can get your hands on it, Guerlain L'Instant D'un Ete Pour Homme. And make sure you learn how to pronounce Guerlain (the french way) so when the girls (or boys) ask, you can impress

    When I was 15, I remember wearing Avatar and Curve

    Curve was a huge hit with the ladies, but I'm sure cologne is more popular with your age then it used to be.
    I have: Davidoff Relax, Dior Homme Sport, Boss Selection, Azzaro Visit, and Creed MI (will provide # on bottle for verification) available.

    A*Men IS outstanding for that age...but watch the trigger or the whole classroom is dealing with it. Like Hai Karate.

    Well, apparently my first post was too ageist or something of the sort, so I'll sugar coat it . Get Chanel Allure Homme Sport man, it's the best scent if you want to smell like a young, sexy, confident guy. It's my most complimented fragrance, and I personally love it. Get it and don't look back.

    As probably Basenote's first and foremost Sunset Heat fanboy, I have no idea why it didn't cross my mind when I thought of this topic. It's another great choice.

    OK, I'll go for broke here and say Unforgivable by Sean Jean. It's a decent priced (affordable) scent. Okay so it's a rip off of a Creed scent and people slate it because of this, but I fail to see how a GOOD COPY by a reputable name that costs a fraction of the price of the original can be a bad thing?

    Longevity is so-so, but I've read somewhere there are other versions of this that have better longevity so it might be worth checking those out.

    The scent itself is surprisingly sweet and (to me) addictive... I may be 30 (OLD!) but I've had many positive comments from the women.
    My Current 5 stars..... Brut, Lynx Java, Lynx Oriental, Lynx Musk, Lynx Inca, Lynx Fever, Addiction Spice Fire, Hugo Energise, Sean Jean Unforgivable, Burberry Touch, Jean Paul Gaultier Le Mâle, cKBe & cK1

    I like what I like, so sue me!
