    I am 18 and starting my first year of college. I currently wear Intimately beckham, A*men A taste of fragrance and drakkar noir. Can anyone recommend something to sample? More unlike Drakkar than something like it. Thanks

    Welcome! You could check a vetiver, like Tom Ford Grey Vetiver or Guerlain vetiver. Vetivers are fresh but long lasting.

    An interesting fragrance that is fresh and long lasting, but is still not extremely popular and is affordable- Mont Blanc Presence.

    Gucci Pour Homme II - Smells like a spicy black tea. Very versatile and can be worn in the summer or spring.

    Lacoste Essential - A green grassy type fragrance that can be worn anytime anywhere.

    Mandarina Duck Pure Black - Mandarin orange, tangerine, tonka bean, and vanilla. Smells like an orange cream sickle with a bit of tobacco in the background.

    Black XS by Paco Rabanne - Great for your age range. A slight strawberry note and woods that gives off a dark fruity woody vibe.

    24 Gold - Smells like a raspberry tart and an amber latte (if there is such a thing). Sweet and good for clubbing.

    Get:

    Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf
    - Upon application, one is treated to a somewhat refreshing, fruity and citric blend from the commingling of an orangey and peppery bergamot, the tangy bittersweetness of grapefruit and the mildly spicy fruitiness of pink pepper. And, an intriguing elemi showers the blend with its resinous and balsamic spiciness. Resultantly, an all-too-familiar, sweet, spicy, bubble-gum smell wafts to the waiting middle. Here, in the heart, the Bazooka-like opening is immersed in an enveloping stew of sweetly warm and earthy cinnamon, a pepperish paprika and a healthy dose of hay-like floral from saffron. A sweet, pipe tobacco undercurrent carries this inviting melange to the base. Here, the luxurious, cherry-almond, pipe tabacco comes into it own and interplays with the rich, green and smoky earthiness of vetiver. A faint background of a vanillic musk and leather present. A suave drydown ensues. This versatile and high-quality scent has good projection, with a 3-hour, scent cloud, and good longevity, 7-8- hours. However, this composition appears to have purloined its varied, scent paths from other, existng scents. And, although I give the fragrance a "Thumbs Up," it is given unenthusiastically because of the flagrant lack of originality.
