    By far the classiest of the lot is the dreamer IMO.

    However, here's the first of many very similar responses: Go out and sample a ton!

    Of your choices I would go with The Dreamer. I would most likely recommend Pure Malt, but, you are going to have a hell of a time finding it, followed by paying out the nose for it. The majority of the rest of your list are not bad fragrances, but, for one reason or another are not as good as the two I mentioned. Avoid 1 Million like the plague.

    From this list, I went for Very Irresistible, La Nuit, Dreamer

    If you want a real fragrance, get A*Men.

    My vote goes for Le Male, one of my top 3 favorites. Simply a wonderful, clean minty lavender vanilla powder that lasts for ages. It smells like you just left the barbershop after being padded with clean talcum powder. And then the vanilla drydown is wonderful. I also have A Men and it's great as well, but it's very intense and I can't wear it everyday. (if you do like that A Men vibe though, I would also recommend trying Aqualina's Blue Sugar, which can be had for $20. I personally prefer it over A Men for a super sweet scent without the harsh notes A Men opens with).

    Also, for another cheap scent that's a mixture of sweet and green/herbal, you could try Usher UR (silver bottle). It's not oriental sweet, but it's more of an herbal green scent with a sweet bubblegum type base.

    Is Versace dreamer outdated or no??
    Does versace dreamer and La nuit smells sweet or spicy

    I recommend Pure Havane since it is a lot more versatile to wear than Pure Malt.

    For your first scent you want something versatile, so I would go with Chanel Allure Homme Sport. When winter time rolls around then go with the A*men types. Plus, women F*ing love CAHS

    I'd say replace Very Irresistible with L'Instant Pour Homme and then I'll vote for it. LOL.

    I'd suggest not "picking one" and getting samples of them all, along with several others outside of your comfort zone.


    someone that runs through trying different Axe sprays at the rate of one a week, has potential to be a professional scentographer..

    Sweet and heavy to me. The Dreamer is an apt name for this, it is floaty and mesmerising. Very well blended IMO.

    My mum loves this stuff!

    You're 17? Go with La Nuit De L'Homme EDT. Trust me. You won't regret it.
    Wear 3 sprays, sparingly.. at that age you don't want to be known as the "cologne guy" - wear a cologne lightly, you'll be complimented.

    It's what got me started in purchasing colognes and to date it's my #1.
    Top 5:
    1) La Nuit De L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent
    2) Lumière Noire pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian
    3) Royal Oud by Creed
    4) One Million by Paco Rabanne
    5) Allure Homme Sport by Chanel
