    I fully second from the previous list especially Chrome, Live Jazz, Polo Sport, Mugler Cologne, Lacoste Essential and L'Eau par Kenzo

    further fragrances worth testing may include: Boss Elements Aqua, Gianfranco Ferre Bergamotto Marino, Solo Loewe, Oxygene by Lanvin and Baldessarini del Mar, all of them being light and crisp, yet still not very generic

    Live Jazz by Yves Saint Laurent - incredibly cheap
    Cool Water by Davidoff - very cheap too. Even if it is so common, I enjoy this fragrance. Lasts 6 hours through, even 4.
    Vetiver by Guerlain - this classic and legendary green juice should work great in the spring/summer seasons.
    Mugler Cologne by Thierry Mugler - one of the freshest fragrances that I smelled. Use 6 sprays.
    Eternity by Calvin Klein - smells pretty fresh and masculine on me. If you like it, you should try Eternity Summer 2010.
    Eau Sauvage by Dior - what can go wrong wearing this classic citrus lemon fragrance in the spring/summer ? Try Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir.
    L' Eau d' Issey by Issey Miakae - a frash scent that lasts 10-12 hrs. Good stuff...
    MI + Green Irish Tweed by Creed - can go wrong with that. Just don't expect to smell some elixir ! This is not a love potion.
    Chrome by Azzaro
    Pour Monsieur by Chanel - the green juice should work at least in the spring. It is not strong and smells like shampoo to me.
    Allure Homme Sport by Chanel
    Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani - I really don't like this
    The Blvgari house
    Creed's Original Vetiver

    Not to be too critical here, but I'm amazed at some of the recommendations, like in a bad way. I see this happening all the time on threads where people just make rec's that really aren't that relevant to the OP. Sometimes it seems like we get so sucked down the rabbit hole on this forum that we (ok, at least, I) lose perspective on what the average dude is looking for.

    The OP clearly stated, he's
    15 (ie high school),
    doesn't have a lot of cash,
    and lives in Canada maybe in a small town or whatever.

    I'm not saying you should like my cologne rec's or anything, but at least I think they fit the profile. Spring/Summer, Cheapish, nice but relatively inoffensive or generally well-received by the ladies in that age group, and able to be purchased at any low end mall/department store.

    Tom Ford Splits!!!! - Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Oud Wood, Noir de Noir - PATCHOULI ABSOLU
    Plum Japonais, Italian Cypress, Neroli Portofino, Costa Azzura, Azure Lime, Champacca Absolute

    HARD TO FIND - Lavender Palm, Arabian Wood, and AMBER ABSOLUTE, etc...


    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

    I totally agree, I think something like Curve or maybe even Cool Water would be good. Though both of those are rather common, you may like Halston Unbound which is a very inexpensive aquatic/fruity scent. IZOD or Adidas Dare are also very good choices.

    SIX sprays for Mugler Cologne? Holy moly, that's intense. Even just 3 projects like an absolute monster on me, 6 would kill standing next to me.

    in my opinion DUNHILL- DESIRE BLUE would be a safe choice. its another fresh blue fragrance , not so unique but I like it.

    Gucci Pour Homme 2 would be a good choice for any season. Also check out Burberrys for men...I see this one at the bargain basement stores all the time for not much cash, and it is very good for spring like weather. Burberry The Beat is good too. Citrus and pepper. Issey Miyake is nice in warm weather as well. Ive always liked Lacoste's Style in Play. I think that would be very fitting for a young lad such as yourself.

    Green Irish Tweed is safe, Millesime Imperial is ok but I prefer Virgin Island Water. All 3 are by creed, Kouros sport might work,Versace Fraiche is safe.
