    Default Recommendations for early 20's male

    For the past few years my signature scents have been Cool Water in the day, Hot Water in the evenings.
    I'm looking for something new - mostly for the day but versatile enough to wear at night. So far, I've been recommended Allure Sport, Egoiste and Egoiste Platinum, which I'm yet to try. I would appreciate some suggestions for a scent with a wow factor for someone of my age range. Perhaps something that not everyone my age is likely to be wearing? Thanks!

    A*Men
    Definitely has that wow factor. Either "wow, never smelt anything like this" or "wow... what is this, I don't even."

    Dior Homme
    Very classy, suave and just freaking sexy. Some people find it a little too feminine though.

    Although it is a fine fragrance in my opinion, in this case it is not a good recommendation for what he is looking for.

    Dior homme is good also but I recommend dior homme intense for better longevity since it is an EdP

    But only old men buy Thierry Mugler

    Seriously though, I have no idea what's common and what's not. Over here, I rarely run into someone wearing perfume.

    L'Homme by YSL or even La Nuit De L'Homme. L'homme for the day and La Nuit for the night. But if you're looking for only one specifically, I suggest Bleu De Chanel or Egoiste Platinum. Either one is signature scent worthy and works great all year round, day or night.

    Something safe and cheap - Burberry for Men or YSL Body Kouros
    A little more expensive & different - Comme des Garcons 2 Man & Bond No. 9 Eau de New York
    AND something in-between the two - L'Occitane Eau des Baux & Brecourt Esprit Mondain

    I don't really think there are 'age ranges' on perfumes. I'm in my early twenties too, and I don't really like any of the scents listed so far (aside from Green Irish Tweed, which you will like as you like Cool Water). That's not to say they're bad fragrances or poor suggestions, I'm just not a fan of the majority of fragrances that some people think are for our 'age range'.

    The best way is to find a fragrance you like is to search with your own nose. Go to Selfridges and just smell around. If you don't want something everyone is wearing, just avoid more of the designer fragrances (especially 1 Million).

    I couldn't disagree more. Also in my 20s here and I think there are some wonderful suggestions here that you should try out for yourself. Also, Green Irish Tweed smells nothing like Cool Water, so I would use your judgement there. If, anything I could see you enjoying Platinum Egoiste due to similarities.
