    Default Re: high school student needs help with cologne choices

    I am definetly going to buy 1 million. But the 3 you listed are too cheap not to try. And I only here great things about them. I won't have much money left over. But I should be able to buy one more of the 3 you've had/have. Which would you say you get the most compliments on?

    HM is a highly regarded fragrance around here, especially for its price. In fact, I think a lot of people would pay double what HM charges online.

    I'd say neither. Go in between, 2 quality fragrances. You can get 100ml of L'Homme and 100ml of something else like A*Men for about $105-$110.

    Default Cheap complimented gourmands?

    I'm looking for a cheap(under $40) sweet gourmand scents for a high school/college student. I like the sweet ginger of ysl's l'homme, and really like the sweet bubblegum of 1 million. The only problem is people recognize my scent And know what I'm wearing. I want a complimented scent that isn't very well known. But can get the compliments of 1 million. I've got some that I want to try such as aquolina's blue suger($10 amazon 1.7 oz) and hanae mori's hm($15 amazon 1.7 oz). Id even try a girls perfume, that could be pulled off by a man. Opinions? Suggestions?

    Mont Blanc Presence
    Zegna Forte
    CK Euphoria Men Intense (this one is super sweet and fruity, might be just what you are looking for).

    Cuba Gold by Cuba Paris. Possibly not a massive compliment getter, but a relatively easy and inexpensive gourmand to acquire.

    And if your comfortable wearing female fragrances, the women's version of Lolita Lempicka is even better.


    And yes, +1 to all Rochas Man suggestions.

    I'd go for either of these especially Au Masculin, it's quite special with that anise.

    Rochas Man is just too sweet for me, it really is like wearing candy floss.

    Welcome to Basenotes!

    There's so many, don't know where to start. Chanel Cuir de Russie is the 1st one that comes to mind, also Caron Tabac Blond. Guerlain's Sous le Vent and Vol de Nuit are great on a guy.

    +1 Rochas Man. If you can get Eau des Baux by L'Occitane for cheap via disccount code as previously suggested, then go for it as well. Watch out also for Perfumania in-store sale, that's how I got Givenchy Play Intense for less than $40 (100ml).
