    Default Good summer fragrance for a 14 year old high school student?

    Hi, I am looking into buying another fragrance for the upcoming spring and summer. I currently own Tommy Bahama Very Cool, Chanel AHS(my fav), and ecko blue? I need the fragrance to have good longevity so it will last the whole school day. Preferably above 6 or 7 hours. My budget is $100. Thank you!

    Buy at least a (cheap) bottle of Horizon by Guy Laroche! (see reviews)
    It is good, fresh, wearable for younger people and lasting!
    My Top 10 : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Loewe: Esencia/Pour Homme
    - Guerlain: Homme L'Eau Boisee
    - Pal Zileri: Cuoio
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Guerlain: Vetiver
    - Amouage: Jubilation XXV
    - Dior: Homme Intense
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraicheur)

    You could do a lot with $100.
    I recommend Polo Blue, the Versace line of fragrances, as well as Perry Ellis 360.

    Perry Ellis 360 Red.

    It's really cheap. It often gets compared to Acqua Di Gio, which has been a worldwide best seller for well over a decade. In fact, some prefer PE Red. It'll be great in the summer, and it's probably something girls your age will enjoy (though it's versatile enough that I'd still have recommended it if you were in your 20s or 30s).

    On the pricier side, Chanel Allure Homme Sport is a can't go wrong option for around $70. But PE Red can be had for closer to $15, so you can't lose.

    Oh, how I know what it is to be in your situation. It happened many years ago for me, but I recall well. With your budget, you have a lot of possibilities, so here's a few to consider. My suggestions follow with a little explanation:

    Monsieur Balmain: Fresh and citrusy, awesome in the heat of summer. Dresses up well too, if necessary. Can be had for about $30-$40

    Chemsitry by Clinique: Fresh and crisp, but you should be a fan of ginger (it has LOTS of ginger!). Has a spicy "snap" to it (No pun intended). Sets you back about $60

    Cool Water by Davidoff: Yes...yes I said it. Go with the original, not any flankers. Popular, but very good in the summer. I've seen testers go for about $33 on eBay, with shipping. You can definitely find this one at a major discount retailer.

    Fair Play by Adidas: Don't even compare the Adidas scents to Axe or spray junk. These scents deliver, and this one bears a strong resemblance to Kenneth Cole Reaction. Fair Play can be found at discount retailers for about $10 or about the same on eBay or other online retailers. Epic win.

    Guerlain Vetiver: Vintage yet still cool. Has a tobacco note similar to original Tommy Bahama, but a great citrusy green top. If you pay more than $50, you could have done better. So do better.

    Chrome by Azzaro: Great stuff, clean fresh....I think the tea note in this one is on par with Creed's Silver Mountain Water. $40 will get you a lot of this stuff.

    Mugler Cologne: So incredibly fresh and long lasting too! Many say it bears a resemblance to Creed's Original Vetiver, and I agree with them, but there are differences. $60 could well get you enough to last a decade of summers.

    Lanvin L'Homme: I personally love this stuff in the summer. Wears well, and one of scents in my collection to garner bunches of compliments from the ladies. Not real ritzy, but not really casual either. Great longevity. Seen lots of 'em on eBay for under $30.

    As with anything, I suggest you try any of these, unless you read reviews and feel confident enough to order, then cool. But man, I know what it's like to have to earn odd-job and yard work money, so it's totally understood if you wanna know what you're getting into. Hope these help and talk soon!

    Awesome suggestion. After seeing a few of the ideas thrown out here, this one is a breath of fresh air. A nice white grapefruit that projects very well.

    Good choice as well. You can get a 6.7 oz bottle for under $40 USD. Very similar to AdG for a third of the price.

    Here's one that no one else will mention...

    M;0░C


    Smells like iced, fresh-cut apples. Hidden gem and you definitely wont have to worry about someone else wearing it.

    Lots of good suggestions above too - if I were you and had 100 bucks to spend on some summer scents I would go with the 360 Red, or Paris Hilton Just Me, some Michael Jordan, or a 1 oz of Chrome, Adidas Pure Game or Adidas Fresh Impact (these 2 don't last all day but you can "top up" if you carry a back pack) and Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts - and still have some money left over for whatever. I would NOT blow it all on ONE higher cost scent.

    L'homme and SSSB both smell awesome, but doesn't last long at all.

    +1 for 360 Red, Paris Hilton Just Me and L'eau D'Issey...all long lasting

    I'll also add Nautica Voyage for long lasting and different smell than your run of the mill aquatics

    Nautica Voyage for $20, and spend the rest of your money on taking girls out.
