    Default Suggestions For High School?

    Hey everyone, I'm looking for some new fragrances for a high schooler (teen).
    I currently rotate between Allure Sport and Acqua di Gio during the daytime and Armani Code for evening wear. As you can tell, I like fresh/aquatic/citrus fragrances.
    Any suggestions are very much appreciated! Thanks

    This topic has been done to death, so I'll just post my daily wear colognes (I'm 17)
    Chrome - Azzaro
    Fuel For Life - Diesel
    Roma Uomo - Laura Biagiotti
    Eau Fraiche - Versace (when it starts to warm up)

    I think you'll find all of these are pretty versatile.

    For day, Thierry Mugler's Cologne (fresh and green), Bvlgari Aqva (aquatic done right), and L'eau d'Issey for men (fresh and aquatic while sidestepping the clichés) might turn your crank. Your choice for night was also my high school fave (Armani Code), but try branching out into slightly spicier/more leathery scents that don't smell too aftershave-y: Dolce and Gabbana Pour Homme on the lighter end, Bvlgari Black and Calvin Klein's Obsession on the heavier. Any of the lighter Calvin Kleins (Eternity, Be, One, Truth) work for daytime, too. They can withstand the tendency of high-schoolers to overspray, and you'll smell like the '90s, which are so in vogue right now. Chicks will love it! "Wow, you remind me of my best-friend-from-kindergarten's moody older brother who wore Docs and was in a grunge band. Wanna go out?"

    If you like Allure Sport and AdG, then you need to try Versace Pour Homme. It's been compared to both on here. On me I get more similarities to AdG than Allure Sport, but a more mature AdG. Others you should try are Bvlgari Aqva, 212 Men, Cool Water, and L'eau par Kenzo.

    I thought about recommending Mugler Cologne and L'Eau D'Issey, but was afraid they may be too mature for you. However, you are already wearing Allure Sport, which I find mature. So, yeah, check out the Mugler and Issey.

    +1 on Issey Miyake
    +1 on Bvlgari Aqva

    Also try A*Men if you're feeling brave. Chicks dig it if you can pull it off, yo.

    I'll throw Escada Sunset Heat for Men into the ring. Absolutely perfect for carefree days.

    I say go with Givenchy pour homme Blue Label for daywear, and still smell fresh, yet more unique from your entire crowd. For evenings, if it's sweet woods you're after (i.e. Code), try YSL's La Nuit de l'Homme.

    Based on what you're spending on your current favorites, these two suggestions of mine certainly will fit your budget.

    Well, I'm impressed!

    Especially with Roma by Biagotti, a 5 star scent all the way.

    Kevy try out:

    John Varvatos
    Mont Blanc Individuel
    Quasar
    Perry Ellis 360 red (an AdG clone but better)

    Look up their reviews.
    And welcome to the madness!

    Cheers,

    Don't be afraid to try anything non-fresh/aquatic, I'm in high school too, and I wear female scents from the 20's and 30's all the way up to powerhouse 80's masculines. Just be light on the application if you're rushing to get to school, you dont want to smoke anyone out. (I did that with Arpége)
    If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.

    +1 Cool Water (more preferably the Happy Summer flanker if you can find one)
    +1 Polo Sport
    +1 360 Red
    Z Zegna
    Nautica Voyage
    Paul Smith Story
    Lacoste Essential
    Bulgari Aqua Marine (though Aqua is better, Marine is more suited for high schoolers)
    Kenzo Tokyo for night out

    I'm in high school too.
    Dior Homme is light, stylish, elegant, I wear it a lot.
    T.M. A*MEN's time is comming to an end, it was the fragrance of my winter, even @ school, liked it a lot, but now I can feel it gets cloying and very sweet (the weather's fault) (starting to understand the bad reviews about it, but I still love it in the cold time)
    Versace The Dreamer - the most dreamish, poetic drydown
    YSL Body Kouros - spicy, strong, representing youth and power at the same time.
    I also recommend the infamous Uomo? Moschino
