    Default Need an everyday winter frag (CHEAP!)

    Hey so I'm a 16 year old, in a cold winter town and I'm looking for an everyday fall/winter cologne.
    I want in to be under $40-50 dollars because I have recently spent a lot of money on fragrances and clothes and food, whatever hahaha. I'm looking for something that smells nice, gathers compliments and lasts long!
    I currently own YSL la nuit de l'homme, which is almost to classy and I save it for nights out.
    I own Chanel Allure Homme Sport which is probably my best attention getter, and I own guici guilty which is nice!
    I own some other ones, but those are the only ones I really like!
    I need recommendations, so under my price limit, circumstances, and taste (as poor as it is), me out!

    Burberry London and Estee Lauder's Aramis, Tuscany or Havana are good winter fragrances that are not expensive.

    Either Burberry London , Rochas man or Versace Dreamer. All are about $30-38. I personally prefer the Dreamer due to good projection and longevity. Also I'm in high school.

    Burberry London (again)
    L'instant de Guerlain
    YSL La Nuit de L'homme.
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    Michael Jordan Legend. Cheap enough that if you don't like it, no big deal. I've been using it a lot this winter. Very warm scent.

    CK One Shock. Try it at Kohl's then buy it at TJ Maxx or Marshall's.

    I would agree that it makes for a very nice winter scent, especially as I am growing rather fond of it. However, given the age of 16, I think the dark notes might not be readily accepted by his peers and romantic interests. Just my thoughts...

    Try London before you buy it.
    I would give Boss Bottled a try, you may like it based on your current collection.
    CK1 Shock is perfect for your age
    Regardless of what you decide, purchase Jordan Legend in addition to your choice (at $10/3.4 oz, you can't go wrong).

    Further recommendations for Burberry London and/or CK 1 Shock.

    I do like Burberry London a lot. Another great cold weather scent is Van Cleef & Arples pour Homme, a wonderfully dark masculine floral that is also very reasonably priced.
    Current Favorites:
    1. Le 3me Homme - Caron
    2. Yatagan - Caron
    3. Van Cleef & Arples Pour Homme
    4. Dolce & Gabbana pour Homme
    5. Kouros - YSL
    6. L'Anarchiste - Caron
    7. Xeryus - Givenchy
    8. V.I.P. Special Reserve - Giorgio Beverly Hills
    9. The Dreamer - Versace
    10. Nobile - Gucci

    One more for Michael Jordan Legend. Smells much more expensive than it is - $12.99 at Ross. Perfect for winter. This has been in my regular rotation the last couple of months and it's subdued enough that you can wear it to school.

    True, it might not be a "slam dunk" with that young of a crowd.

    How is Legend too dark for the younger crowd? I find it a very safe fragrance, that would work with any age.

    The kids I work with seem to like it.

    Hiya!
    I have a really cheap one for you: KISS HIM. Scent is marvelous, has nice projection, soft, and short - moderate sillage. Buy on Amazon.
    Good Luck!
    Happy New Year!

    +8 Burberry London.
    $35 for Carbone de Balmain online: warm flinty frag for cool weather.

    For your age, what you are saying about what you like to wear more often, and what gets you compliments more, I do not think you are looking for a fall/winter frag.

    Le Male JPG is a safe choice.

    Default Re: Need an everyday winter frag (CHEAP!)

    JPG Le Male (Safe) or Eau des Baux (slightly less safe, but you probably wont find someone else wearing it). EdB is 52$ shipped directly from l'occitane, but you may be able to find it cheaper elsewhere...

    Burberry brit is nice. Not too expensive either. I Would try spice bomb by viktor and rolf . though it may be like 60-70 bucks it will get you alot of compliments.
    When it comes to frags sometimes less is more!
