    I would probably go with Pure Malt, Blvgari Black, and D&G The One, mainly because they are popular and you could probably sell them if you didn't like them. You could probably get 1.5 ml spray samples of all 10 on your list for the cost of one bottle. That would be the safest bet, and those would last you a while.

    My preferences for:
    Bulgari Black (interesting, compelling rubber note)
    Encre Noire (fresh, with a note of deep inkiness)
    Lolita Lempicka au masculin (aromatic)

    cacio

    Encre Noire is my fave from your list but might not be teenager friendly. You might appreciate it but your friends might not.

    Pure Malt is popular with young women as is Le Male and Love & Luck.

    If you're buying 3-4, I'd recommend choosing fragrances that differ from each other as much as possible. Maybe one fresh, one woody, one spicy. You'll get a lot more mileage out of them.

    From your list, for a 17-year old, I'd recommend:
    pure malt
    allure sport
    la nuit
    blvgari black

    B. Black's great, but a little weird. Be ready for that...

    Pure Malt - I'd go with Pure Havane for your age group.
    Dior Homme Sport - Excellent summer frag that shouldn't have the name sport in it.
    Bulgari Black - rubber and vanilla. Sounds weird, but the smell is addictive.

    I'd go with the Allure first and foremost, and eliminate the "sport" part.

    Since your 17, id go for...

    La nuit
    Love and luck

    The teenage crowd will dig these scents.

    Dior Sport
    The One
    Encre Noir
    Lacoste Essential

    Any one or more of these, with shipping considerations grab as many full bottles as you can. I would think these to be readily available where you live and should be comparatively priced too.

    Best!

    These would be my pics too.
    I'd also check out Doir Homme rather than Dior Sport/Allure Sport (not that they are similar).

    First and foremost, Welcome to Basenotes!

    Second, after some time on Basenotes, you will see that these polls invariably solicit various members favorite fragrance suggestions from what you mentioned. It is imperative that you sample and determine which fragrance(s) best suit your preferences. The great thing is that the fragrance universe is not necessarily limited to the ones on your list. Are there reliable stockists in Ireland where you can take your time and sample prior to purchasing? If so, please do so first.

    I cannot resist:

    Given your age group, Chanel Allure Home Sport is great for warmer weather. IMO, it is a much better constructed alternative to the typical aquatics such as Fierce.

    You have also mentioned some popular gourmands. You will find lovers and haters of most fragrances discussed on Basenotes. Considering you outlay for three or four fragrances, again I would take some time to sample first.

    Good Luck!
