    Default Re: Do you find some fragrances too youthful to wear?

    Only very rarely do I associate the smell of a fragrance with an appropriate age. In fact, the only one I can think of right now is how Aramis seems appropriate only for old men. I don't have any associations of a fragrance being too young. There are plenty of fragrances I don't like, but it's not because I feel it doesn't fit my age.

    I gave away a perfectly good bottle of Aqua di Gio because it has a tendency to shout as though in a crowded dance club, which is a common venue for this fragrance. Being....more mature....by a couple decades I couldn't wear it anymore.

    I never think of fragrance in terms of young or old.....I make the choice, I make the purchase and I wear the scent.....Gary

    With regard to scents and forgetting marketing, I feel like most aqautics are too young for me.

    Totally agree.

    I started wearing frags in my early teens, and all i wore (and all that was available) are called classics today. I certainly didn't feel old then. There seems to be some confusion between "casual" and "youthful". If i am too old to be casual, then i am in a very sad situation. At 48, if i liked Aqua di Gio well enough, i would certainly wear it with all pleasure. I do not lean towards the newer scents not because they are "youthful" or even "casual", but because they just are not as well made as in years past. Maybe thats the "old man" in me reminiscing

    Here's a thought: apart from avid perfumistas, do we think other people can actually "date" a frag we wear? I think not. We either smell good to them, or we dont.

    I gave away my ADG for the same reason.
