    I think that Davidoff Adventure deserves a mention. Probably not many women have smelled it, but the first day I wore it to work, it got the girls' attention.

    I love Habit Rouge... reading the whole post i've got lost and don't know what kind of frag are you looking for anymore.

    Anyway, habit rouge is manly, is elegant and can be pulled on any occasion.
    I love Antaeus and it's going to be my next full bottle purchase, don't care if i'm in my late twenties.
    I loved Chergui too, from Serge Lutens

    Any of the frags that our fellow basenoters are telling you are good options, not very common and very manly. They know what they talk about.

    Not many places carry it retail, but Yatagan fits the requirements of being unusual, manly, and not a wallet-breaker. Like TdH, it has a dry, natural smell to it.

    As to Aramis, Antaeus, Quorum, and company - don't forget that the "old school" fragrances wouldn't be worn by fathers and grandfathers if they drove eligible women away!

Remember let it dry down for a good 10-20 minutes before you make any decisions. Lui is going to last all day. Use it sparingly and you will be amazed.

    Also from luckyscent: Il Profumo's G-11. Same conditions as above apply.
    Got my samples of Mazzolari Lui and Il Profumo G-11, needless to say both are very unique fragrances, never smelled anything quite like them. I already purchased a bottle of Vintage Tabarome and strongly considering purchasing either G-11 or Lui, or both. Thanks!

    If you're going to start sampling old school frags, you might also try Dior's Jules. Sage up top, a potent start, but dries down to an herbal woods musky manly smell. And it's uncommon.

    If you want something more modern and mainstream, try Dior's Fahrenheit Absolute. A quick burst of Fahrenheit up top, but then it becomes a smoldering incense frag with a little bit of cumin. This one's garnered me several compliments, and I can't imagine there being a lot of people wearing this around.

    That is always such a difficult question. There are so many fragrances to choose from.

    You have a nose. Use it!

    This is just like a woman asking, "Reocommend a dress for me to wear."

    Follow your OWN tastes as you explore different scent categories from different fragrance houses. Trust your own tastes to guide you. Don't ignore some of the scents marketed to women, and remember that gender labels are just a form of marketing and some men who are expert in fragrance use "women's" scents without hesitation.

    Never wear what is touted as "hip" or chic, and avoid what they sell in young people's clothing boutiques as thousands of other young men will be wearing the same thing. You will only be part of the crowd. Bravo for your interest in being unique, and for being so young yet forging on into the houses of Creed and Hermes!

    I would start with the Carons, too, like Yatagan: Le Troisieme Homme and Pour Un Homme.

    You may venture into the "barbershoppy lines" (Trumper's) or the designers (Tom Ford).

    Here are my recommendations off the cuff (with cufflinks, thank you very much!) Some are rare, others easy to find and on discount. Most young men will never have heard of these:

    Hermes Bel Ami and Equipage
    Boucheron Pour Homme EDP or EDT
    Guerlain Habit Rouge and Mouchoir de Monsieur (Derby is pricey.)
    Richard James Eau de Toilette (might be hard to find but unique)
    1740 Marquis de Sade by Histoires de Parfums (pricey but easy to find and robust; nor overly flowery)

    +1 for Aramis, a wonder floral/leather and a classic.

    P.S. Are you really interested in a young woman who is so common and unsophisticated that she wants "one of the crowd" of young men? A young woman interested in a man with unique qualities is deserving of you. A man truly of himself does not care to please anyone but himself. A woman will be attracted to you--for yourself.

    BTW, Vintage Tabarome and Tabarome Millesime are two very different Creeds. Make sure you specify VT.

    That's what I'm trying to shy away from, I had lots of mainstream designer house fragrances that I would like to replace with more niche flavours as my tastes are changing (plus my little cousin is just delighted since he gets the fragrances that are being replaced) So far I've bought Aventus, Vintage Tabarome, Green Irish Tweed and got many samples of other. The reason I was asking for help is because I didn't really even know where to start.
    As far as the ladies go, it brings me more pleasure to have someone compliment me on the Creeds (which already happened multiple times) rather than on a D&G, Ferragamo or whatever else. I've had a girl tell me that the Tabarome smell alone probably has all the girls who know what they want running after me. I'm also looking for additional signature scents which so far for me has been Terre D'Hermes.

    Definitely, I'm giving myself a few more days to try out G-11 and Lui samples, both of which have been great (albeit pricey) suggestions before settling on one of those.

    Any fragrance discussed in the Powerhouse Fragrance Users Group is a "man's man fragrance".

    Check out the group. We're always looking for new members. And that invite goes out to anyone on BN.
    Check out my blog Pour Monsieur, a no-nonsense guide to men's fragrances:
    http://pourmonsieurblog.blogspot.com/

    Any fragrance that should not be worn in public, should be worn in public.
