    Default Some tips

    Hello,

    because i don't know anything about fragances i need a little help with it.

    i'm a young man (21 year) and i search a polite, elegant and classic (not a fragance that hit you in the face) fragance. It shouldn't be to heavy or to sweet and wereable for cultural occasions and if it is possible in the lessons

    ps. I'm not in search for a fragance thats worn by nearly every man.

    +1 New York, an elegant citrus/amber. Actually, it's rather inexpensive, but hard to find outside France. Another idea is Tom of Finland by Etat Libre d'Orange (lemon saffron, rather light in texture), not cheap, but not too expensive either.

    For something very fresh, Sycomore by Chanel (available only in the Chanel stores), a wonderful, classic vetiver with a touch of smoke. This is, however, expensive.

    If "cultural" involves avant-garde, the cheap Breath of God by Lush, or things in the niche lines Etat Libre d'Orange (Eloge d'un traitre, Je suis un homme, in addition to the previously mentioned Tom of Finland) and Comme des Garcons (eg CDG 2 Man). As all niche perfumes, these are hard to find if you do not live in a big city.

    A am always hesitant to recommend something niche to a newbie, but Parfums de Nicolai New York is a great recommendation. And PdN isn't as expensive as most niche brands.

    Let's see, I find Versace Pour Homme to be polite and elegant (especially for an aquatic). But it's more modern than classic.

    Gendarme, Bvlgari Pour Homme, and Paco Rabanne XS (not Black XS) are a few more options. YSL L'Homme would fit your criteria too, but it's quite a bit more common.

    Thank you for the tips. One little problem is that in the city were I live in some of the fragences (New York, tom of finland,... even creed) aren't avaible. Reading the reviews i think i will try bulgari ph, chanel allure (which version?) and versace ph --> I hope these fragance aren't "to old" for me . If you have other tips or comments you can stay posting them, I will go wednesday to the shop.

    oh and i read something about burberry brit/london, is that a good fragance according my previous post?

    Ralph Lauren Big Pony Collection No 1 isn't too overpowering and doesn't 'hit you in the face' lol. The new pony collection is aimed at the younger market too, i don't think everyones wearing it, its certainly not as commen as Armani and Diesel fragrances. RRP's at £39 but go online and get it cheaper.

    And certainly dont go to eBay for your samples they go for like £2.00 each sometimes, and then you have to wait and you might not even like it! If you can handle the Orange women at the counters just pop into town and get some samples, they'll at least spray the perfume on a sample card for you to keep.
