    Sadly, this is like taking a poll to decide what your favorite color might be. YOU are the only one who could ever know the answer for sure. All of the fragrances you've mentioned are made by reputable companies with comparable quality ingredients and professional perfumers composing them. Some of us may prefer one or another, but others of us may think someone else's favorite stinks. Do you really want to wear what a bunch of perfume geeks choose for you instead of trusting your own nose? We all believe you should try them for yourself, and wear the one you like best.

    But, since you ask, I will tally my suggestion to the poll...

    By the way, I'm voting for your new favorite color to be aquamarine too.

    I think love and luck would be right up your alley. You could probably go down to your local TJ Maxx and pic up a bottle. Its very cheap.

    I am not a fan of any of them, personally.

    A relatively inexpensive alternative option to your list that I frequently recommend for fans of these kinds of scents is Bellagio for Men by Parlux ($10-$20 a 100ml bottle on Amazon). There is of course the old standby of Cool Water, and maybe even Bergamotto Marino by Ferre that also is reasonably priced at discounters and smells great, IMO.

    Listen to this man's advice. Except the aquamarine part. Your new favorite color is totally neon yellow.

    L'occitan vetiver. Specializing and niche are wasted on your targets. Vetiver is very bright and youthful, but different enough to be yours, so to speak.

    Three sprays on your solar plexus area should be plenty for a day at school, particularly if you have gym.

    I went with Perry Ellis 360 Red, because IMO it is a better version of Acqua Di Gio. My second option would be Bvlgari because it is somewhat unique compared to the others.
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    Perry ellis 360 Red and Nautica Voyage , both would suit you ....

    Bvlgari Aqva for Men - if you like the dark salt-water spicy feel to it, definitely

    Nautica Blue - this is as boring and cliche as you can get

    Liz Claiborne Curve - a bit too cliche and synthetic for me

    Obsession Men by Calvin Klein - not bad but may be too mature for you

    Nautica Voyage - it's pretty good, but it doesn't stand out in any way to me

    360 ° RED by Perry Ellis - i havent tried this one

    Love& Luck Men by Ed Hardy - go with this one

    I think "dude" is timeless, lol.
    Guy, bro, hombre, idk.

    Love & Luck for now.

    Love and Luck would be a good one. I believe Walmart sells 1oz for like $26.

    CK One Shock for Him would be an even better alternative, its very versatile. TJ Maxx and Marshalls sale the 3.4oz for $20-25. Im 27 and wear this one myself and actually like it quite a bit!!!

    Never tried any from your list.

    The 16 y/o in my house asked for and received Polo Black this xmas. He is as trendy as they get. Perhaps it's trending in your neck of the woods?

    Just sayin'.

    Nice! I would suggest these for you too:
    -Dior Homme Sport 2012
    -Versace pour Homme
    -Versace man eau fraiche

    But specially DHS 2012. Give it a try, it's marvelous and unique, in my opinion
