    Default Need help choosing between these fragrances for fall+winter in High School

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a new frag to add to my collection of Altitude and HCO22 for fall and winter. Please post why (or why not) I should buy these frags for use in high school and your rating out of 10. I'm looking for something that stands out from the plume of Hollister's Jake (which is more common than AXE here in florida ): ) and A&F's Fierce that pollutes the school's atmosphere.

    Dior Homme (did not smell)
    Dior Homme Intense (did not smell)
    Burberry London
    Habit Rouge (also please state whether london or rouge is better) (did not smell)
    Boss No. 6 (aka boss bottled) (did not smell)
    B*Men (did not smell)
    L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent (did not smell)

    Thanks so much for your help guys, and if it helps, SirSlarty and I have similar tastes.

    Have you tried A*men cause i think its better then b*men and obviously if you can get pure malt it would be better

    a*men is more of a very special occasion thing for me... it's too "in your face" for school.

    new decision is between:
    Boss Bottled
    Burberry London

    Le Male smells like spearmint gum to me (i tried it on a card), A*Men is too heavy for school (but I love the way the tar mixes with the caramel on my skin), and

    wait-

    did you just recommend AdG to me? I would rather wear AXE than AdG.

    Out of your choices, i'd recommend London due to its unique earthy nutmeg smell, Boss no 6 because its really clean and fresh and smells pleasant, and L'homme because i think its enjoyable with its ginger boozy notes.

    personally i'd go with l'homme out of those

    You definitely should try Le Male on your skin, the drydown is a very nice vanilla. I do wear A*Men in school, you just can't go over 3 sprays, and 2/3 should be under clothes. AdG...idk i personally hate it, but you need an aquatic at some point, its pretty good. Mugler Cologne would be a better alternative if you want a lighter scent some days

    1 Million could be another choice come September, if you live near a sephora. It's potent like a*men, but a bit more casual imo. I'm going to be wearing it alot come colder weather for sure.

    Fahrenheit is another possibility, might be a bit strange for high school but its a pretty good smokey, leathery, green scent.

    this is probably not the best for school but Rochas Man. You could wear it for school, but it's a powerful tool for cooler weather dates

    I just tried on l'homme by YSL.

    oh my god this stuff smells amazing on my skin and I got a SA to give me a sample vial.

    ^ im glad you like l'homme i love the smell too. But i'm more of a la nuit de l'homme guy than just l'homme, consider giving that a try.

    boozy apple cider to warm vanilla dark chocolate (on my skin at least)

    On my skin it smells like spicy tea then a little sweet, then straight to a bland cedar drydown. L'Homme is better than its flanker IMO.

    Dior Homme (10) - it is the best from your original list

    Burberry London (7) - it is much better than Boss Bottled

    If the choice is between Bottled and London, I'd go with Bottled. London is more refined but in a high school environment, I prefer Bottled.
    From your original list: Dior Homme (9/10)

    Edit: YSL - L'homme (6.5/10) will be nice enough for fall and is popular with young gals.
    Acqua di Gi˛ is my guilty pleasure. What's yours?
