    Default Fragrances for ages 18-21

    What suites age 18-21?

    Hello everybody! Probably a thread like this is already around the forums, but since there are so many.. I thought I could start a new one. If there already is a thread about this subject, my sincere apologies.

    The other day I was coming home from my training, wearing Solo Loewe, and felt a bit uncomfortable. It didnít feel right on me. I felt it was like for someone older than me.
    So I went to check out my ďhugeĒ collection of fragrances and thought, God, Iím wearing what my older brother (10 years older than me) wears!
    So I thought that I would try out some new fragrances, that are considered being in my age range (19 years old).
    But now I find myself that I donít know what to try or what to choose since there are so many out there. I just get confused.
    So I here I am, asking for advice in the best forum out there. I know youíll probably tell me there isnít a perfect fragrance for every age, each person has a different smell, blends differently with every fragrance. So Iíll go try the fragrances you tell me, and the one that feels (and smells) best will be the one I buy!

    By the way, Iím a very athletic guy (Iím a professional athlete) and do a martial art, and take dancing lessons. I also study economics. Iím saying this, so you can select one that you think itíll suit me better.

    Thank you for your time, I really appreciate it.

    Ages 18-21?? There really is no fragrance in the world that satisfies this requirement.

    The vast majority of scents out there can be worn by anyone. There are few exceptions imo - in general, avoid fragrances launched before 1990 and you'll be safe.

    Of course there are grades of maturity but it's all within the limits of normal personal preference. YSL l'Homme is more mature to me than Acqua di Gio, but there's nothing odd with an 18 year old wearing YSL l'Homme.

    Yeah, I know what you mean Point Blank.

    It's how I feel with them on when I wear them. If I smell baby cologne on me, i think it doesn't suit me. I'm just looking for the right one

    To be honest, age doesn't really matter.
    Your looks need to match your fragrance, from my experience.

    JOOP NIGHTFLIGHT
    Azzaro Chrome (not vere praised over here but works for young people, and many girls like it)
    Paco Rabanne XS (poor longevity here, but maybe works with your skin)
    Tous in Heaven (same as XS)
    Calvin Klein Man (nothing special, just works)
    Only the Brave (i don't like it, but it's typical among younger people)
    Fuel for Life Cologne (leave the EDT for nights out)
    La Nuit de L'Homme (same here, for nights)
    Hugo, by Hugo Boss, just works.
    Chanel Allure Homme, Ediciůn Blanca...

    Okay, so qualified for an answer

    Seriously, you got some 50ish recommendations here and everyone could probably give you another 50 each.
    Why exactly are you turned off by what your brother wears.
    I dont want to beat the dead horse wear-what-you-want all over again but in order to give suggestions it might be helpful if you describe more precisely what you are looking for.
    Otherwise all I could rule out would be frags such as Habit Rouge or Guerlain Vetiver.

    This being said, wait and see how significantly your taste will change if you continue to pursue this hobby.
    "old" and "dated" were the first two prejudices that disappeared for me, "masculine/feminine" following right after that

    Meh! Timaru! I cannot say what I am looking for because I don't really know what there is!!

    Before I just wore a perfume because it smelled nice. And now those that smell nice don't feel right!! So i'm starting a new hobby I think!!

    And what I want is a every day fragrance wich I like and I feel confortable with. I just like to know what are some good choices!! I know there are thousands... But I like to hear opinions from people that know more than me and start knowing more about this world.

    I bought my first bottle around that age, it was Paco Rabanne Ultraviolet.

    I also recommend you to try L'eau par Kenzo INDIGO, Givenchy PI, & Ultrared.

    You should go to El Triangle's Sephora, it's really wonderful beeing there.
    Avoid trying fragances just on paper, pick 2 and spray them on your wrists. More another day.
