    I don't know anything about it, sorry. As a general advice I may present my personal findings, while other guys may have collected different experiences.

    Perfume has to be applied as a complement to natural odors which eXclude definitely overpowering washing detergent, fabric softener, shampoo, deodorant and the like. Want to smell OF leather, buy a leather jacket! In order to generate a comfort zone around You the perfume should be close to the edge of perception. That's how most of those functional fragrances in said cosmetic products work. Find out the current trend and go for more-of-the -same or develop a different style of Your own.

    I personally fall for big hits of the 70s, Caron - Yatagan for example. It's odd, namely a bit grimm by todays standards - as it already was back then - but neither overpowering nor boring. Caron - Third Man is another which may be of interest, quite soft. Van Cleef & Arpels - Tzar, manly ele- and arrogant, give it a try.

    +1 for Burberry London, although it feels more appropriate for a 25+ year old, but each to his own.

    Also, YSL La Nuit de L'Homme comes to mind and if you're interested in trying niche, I'd recommend Bond No. 9 New Haarlem and Creed Original Santal.

    Burberry London (sample it before buying)
    DHI
    Boss Bottled is versatile enough for the winter/fall.

    Burberry Brit is a good one too, but I stand by my original!

    Get:

    Black Soul by Ted Lapidus - Upon application, one is treated to a pleasing blend from the interplay of a bittersweet and peppery bergamot, a crisp and fresh, lemon blossom, a spicy cardamon, a slightly indolic neroli and a refreshing mint. Consequently, an all-too-familiar, sweet and spicy, bubble-gum smell materializes and wafts to the waiting heart. Here, in the middle, the bubble-gum-ish opening is immersed in an enveloping bath of fruity, medjool dates and raisins, sweetly warm and earthy cinnamon, and a hay-like and slightly honeyed floral from saffron. Transitioning to the alluring base, Chinese cedarwood imparts its camphoraceous, pencil shaving scent, while tolu balsam infuses its balsamic and cinnamic facets. A sweet and airy woodiness from gaiacwood also presents. Ambrocenide contributes its amber-like, woody character, while musk diffuses its soft and sweetly clean nuances. A comforting drydown ensues. This masculine, refined composition has average projection and average longevity, lasting about 8 hours.
