Thread: Younger brother

  1. #1

    Default Younger brother

    Hey all. My brothers upcoming birthday is soon, I'm older than Him, he's turning 14 and is in to the fragrance scene (if you like), what would be some good fragrances to get him? He kind of knows his stuff (he wouldn't like things like David Beckham, etc), as it's his birthday I don't really have a budget, but let's say... £55?

    Thanks all!

    For that age, 1 million should fit the bill.

    I don't think Burberry Brit is appropriate for such a young man. I think maybe an Aramis cologne like Devin or JHL and start hin of with a classic.

    Aramis? That's way too masculine for his age, no?

    inc0gnito is dead on with his picks for a teenager. His list is perfect.

    Nautica Voyage. $20 but good. No hesitation recommending that.
    Perry Ellis 360 Red. $15 but it's a crowd pleaser. You can buy 'em both for $35.

    If you're going to spend a bit of money, I'd recommend these in particular:

    Allure Homme Sport. Definitely.
    Versace Eau Fraiche. Yes!
    1 Million. Young. Trendy. Definitely.

    And, finally, if you find yourself frustrated by all of the choices and just want one you can't possibly go wrong with...
    Aqcua Di Gio. It's been an international best seller for over a decade for good reason.

    OH! And P.S. Make sure you find out what he already has, just in case. But I'm sure you already know that. Good luck!!!

    Are you looking for a winter, summer, fall, spring or just an overall versatile scent ?
