    I don't understand. Those six fragrances are marketed to adult males.

    By "grown up" do you mean more niche or more expensive?

    CK one - SMW, Montale Bois Fruite. Xerjoff Mefisto
    Polo Sport Extreme - Opus 1870 / Frank Los Angeles
    Clinique Happy - Concentre D'Orange Verte
    L'Eau Par Kenzo - Erolfa / Serge L'Eau / Bvlgari Aqva

    What you're trying to do, is essentially what I've done with all my teenage favorites, finding (either inadvertently or purposefully) scents with similar notes or that hit similar cravings:

    Cool Water - GIT
    Polo Sport - Erolfa / Millesime Imperial / M7 Fresh
    Hugo - L'Anarchiste / Cereus #4 (apple fix)
    Jovan Ginseng NRG - M7 Fresh
    CK One - SMW
    Swiss Army - Green Valley
    4711 - Pour Le Jeune Homme, Extra Vieille
    Bowling Green - Eau Di Campagne, Original Vetiver, Bombay Sapphire Infusion, Selection Verte

    And nothing really comes close to LEau par Kenzo...it's still the best "chlorine aquatic" around, at any price.

    I do to, and I'm in my mid-thirties. BUT, if you really want a more refined take on the similar lemon (yuzu) theme, check out Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche. Great fragrance.

    The current Shalimar EDT is basically a grown-up baby powder. Or were you not looking for fragrances that young? :P

    maybe better quality but not necessarily niche and expensive...
