you could start out by trying some very "safe" fragrances. if you like one million you could try le male by jean paul gaultier. it comes in a bottle shaped like a torso. notes of vanilla and mint, to say the least. you could also try some "fresh" scents such as acqua di gio by giorgio armani, leau dlssey by issey mikaye, chrome azzaro, etc. etc. one of my favorites at the moment tho would have to be versace dreamer. just bought it on amazon for $30 for a 3.4 ounce bottle. and you are right about it being called the dry down. happy hunting.
