    I'd go with 1,2,3,5, or 6. 7 & 8 are too strong, you'll piss people off, and 4 just smells bad! If I had to choose one it'd be Brit.

    7-Paco Rabanne 1 million is a good choice.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    I'm a university professor, and I personally would not wear either 1 million or Joop! Homme to class. I like them for a night out, but not for professional situations. They are both projection monsters, so if you decide to wear them, wear them sparingly or your students may not take you seriously. I agree with JiveHippo about Fabrege Brut, that is not a scent that I enjoy. I'd also go with 1, 2, 3, 5, or 6. My personal fave would also be Brit.

    3-Davidoff GoodLife yes
    4-Fabrege Brut no

    6-4711 Original Eau De Cologne yes, but kinda pointless as it doesn't last. I still like the smell, however

    I am a student. I am 20 years old.

    Thanks for the advice. I will go with the Brit mostly then. I dont understand the baby powder concept. to me the dry down of Chanel Pour monsieur is far more baby powder than Brit.

    get rid of all this stuff... get yourself some of the aramis collection, or of you like something cheap - for your occasion among the budget masterworks i recommend tabac original edc.... good longevity although labeled as edc, really good stuff. and, again, although edc, it goes through all 3 phases- top, middle, base, and lasts for hours. you will like it very much..... german stuff... smooth like german car engine...

    +1 on 1 million and Joop! being somewhat inappropriate for class, very strong and more appropriate for a night out although 1 million would work if you spray very lightly. CK Eternity you also need to be extremely careful with the sprayer, its power is often underestimated but I'll venture that overspraying Eternity is worse than an overspray of just about any other fragrance. There's just something about it that makes it unbelievably nauseating in high concentrations.

    The rest work (although skip the Brut), but there are much better alternatives to all

    Seems like you're going for a casual daily-wear fragrance aimed towards a younger demographic, lots of options for you to look at albeit more expensive ones. Just to name a couple Chanel Allure Sport, Prada Amber PH, Lacoste Essential, Kenneth Cole Reaction, Nautica Voyage, Polo Blue, Armani Mania, etc. are ones you may want to look into. Depending who you ask, some of these will be more highly regarded than others, but in general I think these are some better options to what's on your list
