    Default Help With a Classroom Scent

    Hello, I start school soon and I am looking for some fragrances that I can wear in a classroom setting. I'll mostly be within 2 feet of someone in both lecture and lab classes. I'm looking for something soft, smooth, and fresh so that no one will be offended. I'd be wearing the cologne as early as 8:30 am and as late as 8:00 pm.

    These are some things that I'm looking at:

    Odin 01 (too me there is something fresh about this, so I might not be looking for a traditional "freshness")
    D&G The One
    Thierry Mugler Cologne
    Prada Amber Pour Homme

    Things that I don't enjoy:

    Azzaro Chrome
    Paco Rabanne 1 Million
    Creed Silver Mountain Water
    Many of the CK's
    Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey (need to retry)


    There shouldn't be too much work so I'll be looking to test during this next week. Also, If you have any suggestions that are outside of what I'm currently considering, please mention them. Thanks in advance.

    Thierry Mugler Cologne should work fine.

    From a fellow college student, here is what I recommend:

    Burberry London for the winter
    Gucci PH II
    Dior Homme
    Allure Homme Sport eau Extreme

    D&G The One wouldn't be too bad. Great scent, terrible longevity.
    Boss Bottled sounds perfect (I recommend it more often than anything else, try it and you'll see why).
    YSL - L'Homme

    I would go for Mugler Cologne or GPHII.

    Thanks guys. I actually have had the little sample splash bottles of London and Boss Bottled. Application was slightly difficult at the time but I do remember really liking London. At that time Boss Bottled seemed a bit too feminine, but I'll be sure to retry it.

    I'll make sure to take the next week to try TMC, GPHII, Dior Homme, L'Homme, and the eau Extreme version of Allure Homme Sport. Thanks again, although I know that I'll probably end up buying full bottles of them all at some point.

    I'll try to try these out, but I'm not sure if any store around me carry Guerlain. I'm sure that there are some, though.

    I'll order a sample of the Douro from Luckyscent, but getting onto the Chanel might be tricky. Thanks though, I like the look of the Douro.

    I think that one of my friends has one of these in his collection. I'll make sure to find out if he does the next time I stop by his place.

    There is a store right next to me so I should be able to test them out, although I'm positive that I have before. If I remember correctly, I might have preferred Eau des Baux, but it has been a while.


    Thanks guys again. I should be set with all of these recommendations.

    It's definitely very feminine. Smells like fresh flowers.

    Original Vetiver is nice. YSL L'Homme is pretty inoffensive as well.

    I've worn dif things to school so far; um.. Pure Malt, Spicebomb, Aventus, Andy Warhol Success is a Job in New York, Black Aoud (yep, I did), Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême and maybe another/others.

    You can wear powerful frags, but perhaps try and adjust how and where you apply to your liking.
