    Default Cologne for 17/18 Y/O Guy! Help! :')?

    Hello,

    I'm brand new to here to basenotes but your other answers have been great so far that i've read!

    My question is, im looking for a different cologne to the one im currently wearing (Superdry double dry / armani remix and CKIN2U) Both get me very good reviews from the ladies, but I'm just looking for a change.

    I've seen and really like;

    Paco Rabanne - 1 million
    Armani Code
    Dolci + Gabbana - The one

    I'm really looking for a scent that will get me great reviews and that isn't too old for my age? Any other suggestions that I should try - I'm really not keen on fragrances like Armani Diamond either! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Chris

    I've got the atomizers of them but cant decide which to get for christmas. Realistically I only need one every day, so if people could suggest an every day one, an evening one and a clubbing one that would be great! I'm so stuck at what to even look for in different colognes

    No scents are "too old" for you... That said, Bellagio for Men is a very good smelling light, fresh and slightly herbal scent that is relatively inexpensive at about $20 or less a bottle online and garners compliments whenever I wear it.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Thanks, as far as price goes I'm not too fussed as it's a Christmas present aha and it usually lasts a long while! I see a lot of burberry London or ysl la nuit...? I'm getting some more atomizer soon but can't realistically take a sample of every one :')

    Looks like we have the same taste.
    Of the 3 mentioned, I think Code would be best for everyday use (unless you like one of the others more)
    You may also like La Nuit De L'Homme.
    Try MJ - Legend too. You can buy it on top of any other fragrance you decide on, since it's dirt-cheap ($10 for a 3.4 oz bottle).
    I would be wary of places like Macy's and Sephora. Unless you already know what you want to sample, avoid them. They will push on to you whatever they're being asked to push that month/season.

    +1 on CK Shock. Based on you've mentioned, I'm sure you will like this also. It is also great for an "everyday" scent, as 1 million can be too cloying at times and offensive to some.
