    Another idea....if you have a Body Shop in your area, they have some very safe, pleasant and affordable EDTs for men. Sadly, my favorite, Javari, has been discontinued.

    LOL- thats priceless, love the comment, sadly its true. Back to the question, how about Hanae Mori or if he really wants to stand Blue Sugar. They are both moderately priced. The HM is a classic scent. Just a thought...

    You suggesting Le Male seems silly to me, especially when the original poster implied they wanted to purchase a less overplayed fragrance.

    I'll suggest :

    Fahrenheit Absolute
    Roberto Cavalli Black
    Tumulte pour Homme
    ( should still be able to find this one)
    Cartier Declaration Essence ( kinda pricey)
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    He needs an everyday scent that has a few key attribute:

    1 - versatile - it's got to be versatile. Wear it to class. Wear it to a date. Wherever, whenever. This excludes things that are way too sweet like La Nuit de L'Homme, Le Male, Pi, etc.

    2 - not overly loud - overly loud scents are just obnoxious, especially to classmates that sit nearby.

    3 - generally well liked - self explanatory.

    The two scents that first come to mind that best fit those criteria are Givenchy Play - a wonderful and soft citrus scent (grapefruit + lemon/lime) that evolves and picks up some coffee and vanilla notes along the way. It is sweet but soft and muted - it doesn't project TOO far, so won't annoy everyone in a 15 foot radius, and yet it does last a long time and project a comfortable distance. This one is more forgiving of extra sprays, too, which teens are wont to do.

    The second scent I recommend is YSL L'Homme - similar in projection and evolution to Givenchy Play, this scent starts out with more lemon and ginger, picks up some violet leaf on the way and finally ends with a sweet vanilla like (tonka) drydown.

    This collection posted by JMUHOBO is really probably your best bet:

    http://sephora.com/browse/product.jh...dPaginate=true

    There are a lot of good scents in there:

    The ones I'm betting he'd like most are

    Givenchy Play
    Versace PH
    Guerlain Homme

    But regardless, you are letting him try 7 scents and choose his favorite. Just making the gift more active like that rather than so passive is a great idea. He'll have fun testing them and seeing what his friends and what girls think of them.

    Greatious, If You went to a shop You wouldn't have gotten such a variety of advices as here. So - why not go to the shop with that unlucky pubic guy at hand to check it out with himself? Fragrance is an intimate thing: whenever I want to use my ladies stuff I have to do it in secret. At least for a guy in that age range when growing up grooming can become more of a burdon.

    In his peticular personal stage of juvenile development options are twofold: to go with the crowd or to show off. There is nothig in between seconded by very low odds that his preference for the camp he chooses today would survive the next party. To present him a fragrance shows some interest in his personal hygiene but won't be too successfull in having him smelling better.

    La Nuit De L'Homme? Unique? NEVER! =P

    Not many teenagers (I'm assuming we're talking about 14-18) wear cologne daily. A lot of them simply prefer Axe, as I've seen.

    However, I could recommend cK Intense Euphoria, 1 Million, YSL La Nuit, or Armani Code. A lot of these are considered "popular" or "mainstream", but one must consider the fact that the market share that a particular designer has over such a young portion of the general consumer base would render what is considered "overdone" by most middle-aged individuals "unique" amongst the young.

    Code was the first cologne I ever received at the age of 16. I still appreciate it quite a bit, despite the criticism it receives. From what I can remember, I never wanted to smell like everyone else back in school, and still don't in university (college if you're from the U.S. ;P).

    I guess what I'm trying to say is to maybe find him something that's mainstream for individuals aged 18-24; he probably won't use it every day, but he'll grow into it with an appreciation for proper fragrances, as opposed to the stuff that I consider to be garbage that is sold at Aeropostale, Hollister, Abercrombie, and other such companies who think that a label means everything.

    The reason why I said it was unique was because people in my age group wear stuff that your ex girlfriend has already smelled on other guys, its always good to wear something people in my age group would not wear because its not a popular brand with teens, and the girls and my other friends love the smell of la nuit but i will never tell them what it is and its the same with leau d`issey, and edtion blanche and burberry brit they like them all but i will never tell them what it is because they say it smells much nicer than the mainstream stuff in highchools like armani and axe.

    Threads kind of dated huh? But Play Intense is really nice for High school in the colder seasons. -1 on Mugler cologne. Burberry Brit would be excellent too, La Nuit I think smells a little bit older than 14-15 years, 18 I think would be better. One million is definitely a great choice for HS too. Anyway you go, some girl will probably still think its Hollister.
