    Default 300 to spend, care to help me?

    I am buying from a website called www.cheapsmells.com

    I am looking to update my collection, I have a few niche but I am looking to get a decent 'haul' of new designer fragrances and need help, I have around 200-300 to spend, I am not looking for anything particular in terms of smell, just want good projection/longevity, I have JXXV, Creed Aventus/GIT as my niche, so can anyone pick about 10 good picks?

    I was thinking stuff like BLV pour Homme, CK Obsession Night, I like fruity fragrances but also
    spicy.

    On a side note I am 21.

    Fahrenheit
    Live Jazz
    Michael Kors
    Gucci Pour Homme II
    L Instant Extreme
    Azzaro Pour Homme
    Rochas Man
    Chanel Pour Monsieur
    Dior Homme Intense
    Rive Gauche

    The above is a list of good designers but you are not going to find them all at cheap smells. That company is good for finding the occasional gem but I would not advise blowing 300 on average designer frags with one or two very good ones.

    If I was you I would get two expensive top of the range fragrances that will make you feel good when you wear them as its the quality and not the quantity. Anyway all the best on whatever you decide to purchase.

    Thanks for the list and the advice.

    My basket so far is as follows, I need more recommendations, longevity+sillage is my main focus, obviously don't want it to smell horrible but any smell for any season is OK.
