    Default YSL L'homme vs YSL La Nuit vs Bleu de Chanel, for daily wear (also my first frag)

    Hello everyone!
    So I posted a topic asking for help as a newbie last weekend, and after gathering a great deal of info from the very helpful members here, I finally went out for testing today. I managed to narrow down to a few frags I really liked. Specifically I was looking for scents I liked, that I could also wear during the day for daily use/beginning signature scent. L'homme, la nuit, and bleu de chanel were the ones I gravitated towards most, as other ones had far too strong projection/more mature or formal scents. L'homme and la nuit seem to hang closer to the skin, and I also kinda had a hard time differentiating them (I could smell the difference, but couldnt describe...)
    Bleu de Chanel started off a bit strong, but after it developed it was quite nice.

    Keep in mind that at my age (16), there really isnt anything worn other than aqua di gio and A&F sprays...so there isnt any worry about smelling too generic.

    So basically, what would you recommend I purchase for a first frag and for a "daily" use?? Can you guys tell me which you like most and why.

    Thanks in advance!

    Can't go wrong with either L'Homme or Bleu. If you want more projection and longevity, go with Bleu de Chanel.

    All three are fine options. I like all three equally.

    Go with Bleu. It will last longer and therefore give you a better value for the money.

    Hard to say, I have all three and like them all. But if you are after projection, I think Bleu would work best.

    l'homme or bleu like everyone else has said.
    Personally I think l'homme smells better and has more to it.

    You can't go wrong with any of the three, all three are good.

    But personally, I prefer L'Homme.

    Thanks for the replies everyone! I will probably have to go back for one more round of testing before purchasing.
    On a final note, would you say that as a decently mature 16 year old, one could pull of wearing L'Homme daily?
    Im not particularly..flamboyant or a super classy dresser.

    Sure, L'Homme is pretty versatile both for who can wear it and when they can wear it.

    Funny enough, Bleu reminds me of a "mature" version of Fierce.

    Like, I'm being dead serious.

    Yeah for sure.

    Having said that, L'homme > Bleu in my opinion.

    la nuit is the best of the 3 imo.

    most interesting, most sexy, most classy and definitley the best performer of the 3 on my skin

    I'm with Hednic, I think you have three good choices so there is no wrong answer.

    Don't go out drinking for a couple of weeks and buy them all! If you really have to pick one, go with bleu
