Try M7, it will blow your mind.
Hey guys! I am new to the fragrance community and want to start collecting. I have started pretty small, here are my current colognes,
Cool Water by Davidoff
Eternity for Men by CK
Mixed by GAP
And last, and my favorite:
Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male
I love very masculine fragrances but considering I am really digging Le Male, it is obvious I am okay with most scents. I would love to know what scents I should try next. I am looking at either buying Tim Mcgraw by Tim Mcgraw, or Bleu De Chanel. I have been interested in collecting for the last week, but I am definitely not ready for niche fragrances like Creed, which sound delightful! Despite me being young, I try to be as classy as possible whenever possible. Thanks guys!
Try M7, it will blow your mind.
Looking for Hermessence Ambre Narguile and for TFPB Moss Breches (50ml bottle), willing to pay in cashdollars. PM me!
I'll take a look. Greatly appreciated!
Love your enthusiasm and welcome!
What can I say - I like McGraw and I love Bleu de Chanel. I think Bleu is a great fragrance, and if you've smelled it and like it, I'd say go for it. You have a pretty good range already. I do think you could use a good woody scent - you don't really have one yet. A nice one there would be Terre d'Hermès - it's an easy one to get into that kind of scent, and it's pretty popular here. McGraw's a pretty good celebrity scent, too, though some folks prefer the McGraw Southern Blend flanker scent (it gets a bit more love around here). I think it's good to have one or two of those kind of scents, just to stay real. It's so easy to start moving upscale in the price of your scents, and lose track of how good some of the cheapies are.
And before I forget, welcome to Basenotes!
Welcome to basenotes!
Sniff as much as you can!
Classy? Try Chanel Allure Homme. Welcome to basenotes!

Thanks for the introduction - you are embarking on a very enjoyable journey. Welcome !.
Thanks for the warm welcome guys! I bought Le Male over Allure Homme mainly because I heard that it does not project very well. My nest thing on my list of things to get are either a nice watch or one of the colognes mentioned. Probably Chanel, I mean come on, its awesome to be one of the few 14 year olds NOT wearing buckets of AXE
Welcome to Basenotes!
I like that you're open to try out some more fragrances and that you won't stand for buckets of AXE!
Have you tried the classics? maybe if you smell the eaux de colognes from guerlain, armani PH, YSL PH, guerlain's vetiver, signoricci 2 by ricci and eau savage by Dior are a few to start trying out.
I hear that all of those houses and fragrances are great! Once again, thanks for the warm welcome.
I always recommend the same thing, get out there and just follow your nose!
Tom Ford Splits:Noir de Noir, Neroli Portofino, Lavender Palm, Plum Japonais, Champacca Absolute, Tobacco Vanille ONE LEFT: Italian Cypress, Patchouli Absolu, Amber Absolute, Tuscan Leather, Oud Wood
Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
Welcome! Love Master-Classter's Toucan (and second the sentiment.)
Froot Loops yummm.

Welcome and smell and smell again. Just cause you did not appreciate it the first time does not mean it is a bad scent, you might need to check it out on a different day.
Five that I am enjoying right now
1) Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company
2) Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
3) Bois des Iles by Chanel
4) Devin by Aramis
5) Coromandel by Chanel
Thank you for the insight guys!
Ended up with Tim Mcgraw. Satisfied but worried that the alcohol smell would attract unwanted attention?
Hey bud, I am also new here! Welcome!
It may just be the top notes of the fragrance you are smelling? Give the base notes some time to appear and judge from there whether you enjoy the scent of the fragrance or not. IMO, after a few different applications, if you are still self conscious then you may have to look elsewhere at a different type of scent and try to find what you enjoy best. Like most have said, venture out and keep on sniffing as there are tons of fragrances to experience.
Big welcome to newbies LeFail, guugle and subie04!
Sniff and enjoy in good health!
Terre d´hermes could be a great starting point: classic and modern stuff
my current top five (always in transition)
Dior Eau Noire
HdP 1725 Casanova
eau de gloire parfum d'empire
Dia man Amouage

Thank you! It's funny that you greeted me because I was just reading up on your posts in a thread regarding the guy that had 20 blind buys!
Anyways, I have a list of about 60 frags that I want to test and about 20 samples that I have already ordered! It's amazing how everyday is a new journey in the world of fragrances!
