I'm a man.
First, I wanna apologize because English isn't my mother tongue.
Ok. At this time I'm with Clinique Happy and I would like to try something different. I'm 30.
I'm looking for a pleasant, relaxed, light, with low projection (for the office), not very classy, something natural. The target is pleasant. I can't wear powerful fragrances.
I can't spend a lot of money on it. I live in a small city in Spain, so I couldn't find a strange one.
Could you help me?
I'm a man.
starts off pretty sweet but quickly dies down to a close to the skin, smooth moca and vanilla type scent with chocolate peeking at the base. very lovely, i wear it as my casual scent, ladies love it.
Perhaps Cool Water fits your bill.
Hmm. My other thought was Givenchy Play Intense.
Boss bottled might be an idea? or if you dont mind the extreme popularity, aqua di gio might be another good one?
I have wear Issey Miyake and I hate it too.
hmm well then what i would recommend is watching this. u might get a idea from this as it helped me abit when i needed another fragrance in your specifics.
I would recommend:
Dior Eau Sauvage
Pour un Homme de Caron
I would think these would be easy to obtain even in smaller cities.
I'm thinking you might find something by Loewe there too. 7 is nice but I'm afraid may have too much sillage due the high Iso E Super content.
I would say Mugler Cologne would be perfect. Super fresh, bright and with aura of freshly washed human, with light musky drydown, and great value too. Definitely check it out.
Also Pour un Homme de Caron +1, beautiful lavender/vanilla, also great value.
Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...
A relatively inexpensive scent is New York-PdN I find it to be perfect for office-wear.

Carbone de Balmain
Nice and simple, very casual and versatile.
I wear this when I just want to smell good, but not exactly sure what vibe to project.
Also pretty low-key, so I tend to spray a bit more.
YSL Lhomme and Locoste Style and Play(red) are nice
I own Bergamotto Marino, but, do not own Clinique Happy and have only tested it in the store. I did not buy Happy and think Bergamotto Marino is different because the marine notes are more evident.
Rive Gauche pour Homme- affordable-check, relaxing- almost beyond any doubt, not too classy- still suitable for office wear and even with a mature vibe, yet nothing too complicated and formal in its notes either, just a fresh, soapy, almost barbershop-like dominating note, pleasant- yes, even complimented, light and low projection- rather strong and lasting, yet with very few sprays applied, it can definitely be perceived as light and it won't overpower.
From the suggestions above, especially Mugler Cologne and Bergamotto Marino sound appropriate, besides these, I'd also suggest testing two other male fragrances also from YSL like Rive Gauche- Jazz and Live Jazz, hardly any other male scents still affordably sold today can get that fresh, pleasant, relaxed and discreet.
----- People laugh at me because I'm different.... I laugh at them because they're all the same -----
i believe you'll love l'eau par kenzo if you like clinique happy. and you may also try agua de loewe el.
