    Default Best fragrance for a 17 year old male?

    Hey everyone, about to get a new fragrance or two and was wondering what you guys would suggest, i have a few im thinking about getting like bond no.9 new haarlem but it seems a bit pricey, but i heard its worth it. would serge lutens be a good alternative? also might get midnight in paris and burberry london, but is there anything else out there anyone would suggest? I was recommended chanel a few times but im not really sure if its as good as what im hearing from people, also trying to keep the price around $100

    Already own Le male, and i keep hearing chanel allure or platinum, which is better? and whats your take on new haarlem, figured the sweet scent is something teenage girls would like.

    Chanel Allure is sweeter and the better of the 2 imo..
    New Haarlem is too sweet and over 100 bucks..

    Also Givenchy Pi will do well for you

    You've gotta be careful in this game - it's easy to pay hundreds of dollars for something you won't like more than a week. Or 20 bucks for something you'll love for years. Quality should be in the right tool for the job.

    Give Givenchy Play Intense a try. It's got a New Harlem vibe and it's much cheaper as it can be found at many discounters online. Also, you can easily find a department store to test before you buy.

    If you're thinking about Lutens, perhaps Chergui might be worth a try,

    i second this. very nice smell and has a powdery note to it but in a good way. also some spice which I enjoy. and teenage girls seems to love this
    When it comes to frags sometimes less is more!
