    Default Suggest a special buy for a teen

    I am looking to spend around £200 on a new fragrance, I don't mind if it's cheaper

    Anyway I am 21 so don't want nothing too 'mature' a teenager scent/niche.

    I already have Aventus, DHI, GIT.

    Aventus is good but I want something else that is just as good, perhaps something 'warmer' or something for cold weather/night time.

    Need more info. If your budget is £200, the possibilities are pretty much endless.

    But I'll rec Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille to start.

    All I can say is I want it to be a scent I can wear out drinking and around the town, something that has good projection/longevity and is aimed at a younger person, TV is on my list, just looking for more possibilities, was also thinking of Amouage Reflection Man.

    A big budget, truly. I was thinking Amouage too. Epic, Jubilation XXV, Dia, Interlude, and others.

    But since you appear to be in the UK, I think you can also look into Ormonde Jayne - with that budget you may be able even to get the parfum concentration (that is, the most concentrated). The warmest is Tolu, an oriental vanillic.

    New Harlem, maybe. Very good night out scent. Depends though. Aside from warm, what sort of vibe are you going for? Are there limitations regarding where you'll buy? Tonka Imperiale is another that could work. I bought it recently and was stunned. It's better than SDV by a country mile (though I think vintage SDV may be better again, you could look for that) I tried Bottega Veneta recently and was stunned by how amazing and unisex it was, but being a very earthy scent it might not suit a teen. Still you could buy the parfum for that sort of money.

    Another option is vintage. Check out vintage M7 perhaps? I had a 50ml and am satisfied with the La Collection reformulation but others say vintage is far superior.

    Maybe Givenchy's Pi Leather, though that's only around $100 for 60mls.

    Creed Original Santal, or Tom Ford Noir de Noir.

    Get an ounce of Puredistance M. One spray per go will last you. Cedar opening. Hours later cinnamon vanilla and eventually incense settle in.

    I also have my eye on L`Air du Desert Marocain by Andy Tauer, I can get it for around 80 pounds and it has good longevity/projection.
