    Default "Sexy" day/versatile fragrance

    Pure Malt and La Nuit hands down, have been my sexy fragrances. Unfortunately, La Nuit seems inappropriate for day wear (although I do wear it during the day) and tends to smell nicer at night for some reason. Pure Malt, although versatile, is too pricey to wear all the time, I would prefer to keep it as my formal/special occasion scent.

    What I'm looking for is something within a college student age range (I am 20) that screams "fun and sexy!" but is also wearable during the day, night, evening, heat or cold, etc.

    I purchased Boss Bottled which seems to fall under this category, but is there something else?

    Body Kouros; light oriental that I can wear all day and even through warmer days. Terre other than BK though.
    Currently wearing: Pi Fraiche by Givenchy

    Looking at Body Kouros right now...this one sounds perfect.

    Thanks hednic, but BB London is a no-go. Love it, but not quite what I'm looking for.

    Body Kouros is a good shout (especially on a budget), I'd also throw New Haarlem and Dior Homme Intense into the ring.

    Beyond Paradise for Men by Estee Lauder - Upon application, one is treated to a salt water and fruity melange. I suspect Eden's Mist is calone with its watery, marine and ozone accord furnishing a delightful, fresh, seashore apparition. Fruitiness of ripened melons and somewhat medicinal cucumber is provided by the Brazilian jabuticaba, while South African buchu leaves impart their rain forest vibe with their lush and woody aspects as well as a faint mintiness. This refreshing opening drifts to the waiting middle. Here, in the heart, herbaceous lavender, with its inherent freshness, a mediterranean accord of earth and sweet cistus as well as vivacious herbs overhaul the blend. Balsamic sage along with verdurous tarragon, with its licorice and lemon vibe, as well as lemony and woody thyme wonderfully interplay. The strong base usurps this bracing mix. Old and weather-beaten beachwood, green and grassy vetiver, minty and muddy patchouli, earthy and foresty oakmoss as well as light and spicy melaleuca bark, all bestow their sensuous character. A fascinating drydown ensues. This impressive and manly composition has good projection and very good longevity.

    By the way, Body Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent is saccharine, if that's your thing.

    Body Kouros is a good recommendation. Also check out Daddy Yankee, Lacoste Elegance, Rochas Man, and possibly Burberry Touch. (although Touch can easily become cloying in the heat.)
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Le Vetiver Itasca (2010)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Eau des Baux (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    I have a bottle of Body Kouros in my collection but never really reach for it in the hot weather. It may be cloying if sprayed too much so be easy on the trigger

    Another vote for Doir Homme Intense. Fragrancenet had it in stock very recently, but looks like they are out again for the time being.

    I bought Midnight in Paris EDP for this purpose. I know a lot of ppl consider this a romantic scent but I find it incredibly wearable and versatile all year round.

    I also love la nuit, so during the day I like to wear ysl l'homme. It is similar, but easier to wear, and more versatile.

    I really like Givenchy Play Intense.

    Thanks for all the suggestions everyone, I'm going to look into them asap!

    I see DHI is getting a lot of hype on this thread. Definitely going to have to smell this one again (last time I took a whiff of it, it was nice, but I wasn't impressed)

    I wear molecule 01 everyday. I too am in college and it's great cuz it is never overpowering, but it works its magic "in passing" So when you are setting in class you wont smell it, and those around you wont smell it. But when you are walking past someone, they will smell you clearly and distinctly. People often follow me and ask what I am wearing! The stuff is magic. I swear by it.
    Plus its hella fun to tell people you are wearing "Molecule 01" cuz NO ONE has ever heard of it, and it sounds BAD A**.

    I have two recommendations, very appropriate for your age also:

    CH Men by Carolina Herrera (this stuff is great, way under the radar)

    Rocawear Evolution (sexy date night frag you can wear casually and comfortably by day, $35 for a 100 ml bottle)
