    Gph2 for that warm vanilla. Good cool weather.
    1 million is indeed a holiday spiced pie.

    Rochas man and london make me think you will like Carbone de Balmain- dry wood with smokey graphite, but mellowed.
    Instead of Fierce try Legend by Mont Blanc. Similar but not overpriced like Fierce.

    ^ Agree with the Legend by Mont Blanc, that's a good suggestion. I wouldn't go for 1 million if you want to be unique, as this fragrance is worn by too many, but nevertheless it's a good scent if you like sweeter fragrances. Also, even though Fierce gets a lot of hate, I personally love it and feel that it is an amazing scent, especially for the younger crowd (although it is also quite over-worn). Lastly, based on your preferrence for cinnamon type fragrances, I would definitely recommend Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf, as it is spicy and cinnamony, but fresh and clean at the same time; great for fall/winter. It is just slightly above your budget at $75 for a 1.7 oz bottle, and $95 for a 3 oz, but I think it's well worth it.

    I am not a fan of any on your list, but of those GPH2 is probably the better one, IMO.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (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)

    40ml decanted easily of many niches for that money - go quality and go early, this is the only way to eliminate crap worldwide once and forever.

    Ck One Shock
    Some Cartiers, maybe Declaration and its flankers
    YSL L'Homme (again, including certain or all flankers)
    Ed Hardy for Men

    Might all be worth testing, among others. Enjoy sampling.

    For your age what you're looking for and price point, Boss Bottled would be perfect for you.

    You may want to consider either a decant or tester of Original Santal. It's not my jam, but it sounds like something you'd like.

    Davidoff Deep Cool Water
    +1 points for you for owning Cool Water Deep. I love this. Tell me though how much do you like it?

    If you're a big fan of this you might like Azzaro Aqua or maybe even VC&A's Tzar.

    If you like CK One you might enjoy Al Rehab Silver, and if you like Rochas Man you might like New Harlem, and I'd also recommend Molinard Homme II and possibly even CK One Shock for Her.

    If you're looking for a good sport fragrance I've heard Lanvin l'Homme Sport on the receiving end of a lot of love, and it's inexpensive too plus the bottle is gorgeous. Check out Dunhill Desire and Desire Blue. They're nice 'young,' fragrance, and 51.3 is a really unique non-citrus/non-aquatic scent for summer. Also give Romance Silver a sniff.

    Something classy for a young guy: Lalique White.

    Something for when you don't want to think about what you're putting on, that can be worn at any time, Eau de Cartier Concentree or one of the Eau de Carons.

    Also if you really want to smell unique amoung your peers and get noticed try l'Anarchiste, Xeryus Rouge or Azzaro Jetlag.

    I love 1 million. Try it out for yourself and if you love it, buy it.

    If you don't like 1 Million, then Gucci Pour Homme II.

    Amen to that! My teen son likes Pomander by Dawn Spencer Hurwitz. Dare to be different!

    Another fan of 1 Million; it's a great fragrance.
    GPH II is nice but I don't know if you would like it (it smells like sweet tea. If you've ever had McDonalds sweet tea, think of the flavor and add a drop of spice to it, that's GPH II in a nutshell).
    Boss Bottled and Fierce (I prefer Boss) are your best bets.

    I think Juicy Couture Dirty English doesn't get the love it needs for the price. Dirty English by Juicy Couture. A good, manly scent for year round, it's somewhat spicy and woody with loads of a masculine-smelling, leather vibe. Projection and longevity are pretty good too. It's discontinued, but still available. It is inexpensive, and a good scent to have.

    I actually don't pick up much of a cinnamon scent with 1 Million. It's more fruity than anything to me. Kind of like Stripe gum. Don't get me wrong though, I like this scent and I think it'd be a great addition to your collection at your age.
