Hi I'm new on base notes and am looking for some recommendations. I need something that will last 8+ hours and that is suitable for a 14 year old. I have Tommy Bahama Very Cool and Chanel Allure Homme Sport. I also like Azarro Chrome, Givenchy Play Sport, and Givenchy Pi Neo. Since I have a couple warmer weather fragrances, I want my next buy to be a bit heavier and more suitable for winter, but not so heavy that I kill my classmates. My budget is $100. I really appreciate any recommendations and I will be trying them out before I buy. Thanks in advance!
My Top 10
1. Amouage Homage Attar
2. Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
3. YSL M7
4. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
5. Chanel Egoiste
6. 24 Gold by Scentstory
7. Amouage Epic Man
8. Amouage Jubilation XXV
9. Bond No. 9 New York Oud
10. Serge Lutens - Chergui
"A beautiful fragrance to the nose is like good jazz music to the ears, great food to the mouth, and Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to the eyes..."
Lomani Solara Homme
Also you like Givenchy, so you could try Givenchy Play Intense.
Try the following at Sephora:
Givenchy Play Intense by Givenchy
One Million by Paco Rabanne
Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme by Chanel
A*Men / Angel Men by Thierry Mugler (this one is strong)
La Nuit De L'Homme by YSL (not a fan, but others like it)

Midnight in Paris.
Boss Bottled. Yes, it is suitable for the summer, winter, you name it. Probably one of the most versatile fragrances around. Smell it before you buy it, although it is a pretty safe blind-buy.
If you're just looking for something that the ladies love, A&F Fierce
1. Dior Homme Original
2. Musc Ravaguer
3. Portrait of a Lady
4. Noir de Noir
5. L Instant Guerlain pour Homme Extreme
6. New Haarlem
7. Pure Coffee

Agree with many others over here
Midnight in Paris
Acqua Di Gio
YSL La Nuit
Chanel Allure Homme Sport Extreme
Current Top 5:
1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
Here you can buy a 5ml sample spray that will last a couple weeks. Free shipping I think too.
THis is a GREAT scent for teenager. I like it alot and I am in college. plus its only $5 to try it so you are not out if you don't like it the way you are with some of the other blindbuys you may make
Here is the description as borrowed from NOOKA.com
Nooka eau de parfum communicates a universal language that transcends opposites. A synergy of scents, both familiar and foreign, instinctive and original, mental and physical, that come together as one. Japanese Yuzu sprinkled with pink pepper. Polished steel wrapped in vintage leather. This fusion of natural essences and synthetic accords creates the next generation of precious liquids, expressing each wearer's multi-faceted individuality.
“Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?”
1 million. With that being a teenager it is also recomended that you should be a gypsy. This fragrance suits that kind of people and that kind of people recognized it, well, in Croatia at least.
Le Male my 2nd suggestion, nothing much to say - check the reviews, check the forums (search bar)
Hugo Dark Blue - it's my "sin fragrance", that is - frag I enjoy a lot.
Play Intense by Givenchy - became almost a hype recently, lot of play intense threads lately - not a bad frag actually, you might give it a try
A*Men - apply carefully
Joop! Joop Homme - also apply carefully, and yes, at least here in this part of Europe it is worn by teens and mature men both.
Joop! Thrill Man - seldom if ever mentioned, which is a shame because it's a really appealing fragrance
Dolce & Gabbanna - The One and The One Gentleman
Carolina Herrera Chic for Men
Versace Pour Homme and/or Acqua di Gio

My sales thread
Play by Givenchy - Citrus abounds in the opening, with bergamot, mandarin orange, bitter orange and grapefruit. This wonderful interplay of semi-sweet and semi-bitter flavors, with an undercurrent of woods, is refreshing. The wrestling of the citrus and wood tumbles to its middle. The spicy heart usurps the citrus opening with its pepper, amyris wood and coffee flower, forming a musky, spicy and woody radiance, arousing a sexy aura. The oft-seen patchouli and vetiver base blends with the heart nicely, mellowing the woods and spice, and leads to its alluring drydown. This is a well-balanced composition, and has very good longevity and projection.
Anything from Escada (maybe except for PH). It's usually youthful, sweet and cheerful but also cheap and non-pretentious.
When I was a teenager (that was a while ago...) Tommy for Men was fairly popular, and it's a goo winter fragrance.
If you have the chance, check out Jack Wills, a British clothing house, they have a few very good fragrances marketed towards college boys. Their trademark one used to be a warm apple crumble type of scent, truly lovely and quite discreet.
À l'air libre les oiseaux ont eux aussi le vertige (camille)
You guys are giving home suggestions that are NOT suitable for 14 year old.
I will second Rochas man, diesel is a biggie in the teen group.. Girls will dig it, and if you want to feel a couple years older try le
And don't do adg, instead get perry Ellis red 360.
Burberry touch is good for you too.
The one they like. Could be anything. A teenager can easily be stronger, more connected, have a lot more worldly experience, etc, than most adults.
Mine at 14: Azzaro pour Homme, Paco Rabanne pour Homme, Drakkar Noir.

Boss bottled, Lacoste Red, A*Men. If you where Givenchi Play Intense the ladies will be all over you man. If they have a sweet tooth. Coming from another 14 yeah old, by the way.
Try D&G The One Sport, more woodsy/spicy instead of the citrusy/ginger of Givenchy Play Sport.
