    Talking Help Me Find A New Fragrance!!!!

    Hey everyone! New to the forums here! I'm 20 and about to move this week to Los Angeles from Ohio and I'm looking for a new "signature" fragrance to wear for the spring/summer. Something nice and fresh but subtle and not tooo strong. Something that sort of feels refreshing. Any ideas? I'm not afraid of complex or mature fragrances. Let me know what you think!!!!! Thanks!

    Aqua Bvlgari I think is a great bargain
    another one to look out for is Mugler Cologne

    I just wrote a new thread about the new Marc Ecko cologne. It definitely
    has a cool citrus vibe that should go over in the warmer weather.
    I heard that the people that made it also were looking to produce
    some kind of caffeine effect with the notes.

    The one in the clear tall bottle with the green juice. It's just called "Thierry Mugler Cologne". If you like the scent of Irish Spring soap, really, give it a try. Don't spray it on paper, it'll just smell like dirt and grass. That's how those earthy vetiver scents smell like when you first spray it on anything.

    Gendarme 20 is good for Los Angeles. I'd back Rive Gauche Pour Homme too. RG might feel to mature for you. Try it.

    I'll second Bvlgari Aqva, as it is my current favorite, but I wouldn't classify it as "fresh". It's a beautiful, salty aquatic.

    I'll also second Mugler Cologne and Gendarme. Both are very clean, fresh scents.

    I'll add L'eau par Kenzo and Clinique Happy. Both are pretty "zesty" citruses that are good for spring/summer. And I'll also add Versace Pour Homme, which is fresh and classy. I like to describe it as a mature Acqua di Gio.

    Bulgari Aqua, definitely.

    Mugler's Cologne may be charming but, sillage-wise, is a waste of cash in my opinion.

    Do try Le Male, though.

    Bobby Jones is an idea. I think of it as an improved version of Jovan's Ginseng N R G.

    +1 to both. First two that came to mind!

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Cool!
    But do you mean Dior Homme or Dune Pour Homme?!
    Both are divine, the first one sweet, the second one
    more fresh - with delicious topnotes that dosn't stop!
    I think Dune is the best scent for younger man, period!
    Go for it..!
