    Smile Night Out Cologne

    Hi, I'm new to this. I'm looking for a recommendation (EDT) that fits the following criteria:

    -Price: <$50, preferrably <$35 (looking for a ~3.4 oz bottle)
    -Avoid "sweet" or "aquatic" scents
    -Something masculine and sexy, good for nights out (parties/dates)
    -Fit for a college student
    -In production (no discontinued EDT's that are difficult to find)
    -Hopefully not something everyone wears, like "One Million" or "Fierce"

    I live in USA btw.

    Some things I prefer:

    -Dark + spicy scents, sandalwood
    -Floral is good too (think dark rose)

    I was considering ungaro iii (current formula) for the dark rose scent but some reviewers have turned me off of it. I also looked at Zino Davidoff, but I think it's a little too old-fashioned for me. Sorry for all the text, and thanks for the help!

    Also: It must have good longevity + sillage!

    That's a touch above $50, but Aramis 900 is a wonderful dark resinous scent with floral notes.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm also considering Xeryus Rouge and F pour Homme Black (Ferragamo)as well. Any thoughts on these 2 and 900?

    Always worth giving a sniff to Dior's Fahrenheit, I'd say.

    Re: Xeryus and Ferragamo, I have not smelled the Ferragamo. Aramis 900 feels to me richer, more resinous, and with a more detectable rose note. Xeryus rouge feels lighter in feel and sweeter.

    For dark and spicy, I would say you want Gucci Pour Homme I (2003) but it is discontinued, expensive, and you'll have to duel with some Basenoter for any bottle you find. So the next best choices would be "Dirty English" (at Marshall's/TJ Maxx for under $20 and online for under $30) or "Intimately Beckham Men".

    You also might want to check out Encre Noire which can be found online for reasonable prices or search out a deal for Terre d'Hermes.

    Hanae Mori HM is what you want.

    3.4oz can be had on Perfumania right now for $31.49.

    It starts off candied lemon, hits a heart of florals, and dries down with a slight coco vanilla vibe. It has excellent projection and longevity. Great year round fragrance.

    I also co-sign the CK One Shock for Him..though many people may wear this.

    Thanks for all of the quick responses! So I'm thinking about getting the F pour Homme Black and the Intimately Beckham as suggested by another poster (3.4 oz of the former and 1.0 oz of the latter can be bought for under $50). I don't know about the sillage/projection/longevity of IB though, can anyone comment on that? Also, are the floral notes obvious? I plan to use it for an afternoon-evening casual scenario (not partying).

    La Nuit De L'Homme is kind of sweet, but you may actually like it.
    Boss Bottled is good for all occasions.

    I second Carbone de Balmain. Very good stuff, in production, masculine & sexy and not overly sweet. Very cheap too (around $30 shipped). I blind bought this based on another basenoter's recommendation and totally dig it =)
