    Default Suggest me a fragrance for my age.

    Ok, I am looking to make a new purchase, but I don't know what.

    This time I want to buy something that suits my age group (25) with reasonable projection and longevity. The perfume doesn't have to be your typical gourmand, but should have a reasonable class factor.

    Willing to spend heavy money on it.

    I checked your wardrobe and it seems that our tastes are somewhat the same. So do check my wardrobe!

    I suggest you try:
    - By Kilian Back To Black
    - Creed Original Santal
    - Amouage Gold
    - Serge Lutens Arabie
    - Lubin Idole De Lubin

    Don't spend heavy on it my man.... shoot for silver scent by bogart. It's similar to One million but better. Great projection and longevity. Another few good ones are ck one shock and euphoria intense both are very age appropriate with good longevity and projection.

    Far too many young men wear aquatics, so try something out of that category.

    +1 For Back to Black.

    Also try PdE Cuir Ottoman.

    Gourmands = class factor......love it.

    Twenty five years old is all you need to be in order to be wearing anything. Fifteen is ok, too. It isn't about age. It's about confidence:

    Invasion Barbare
    Oud Shamash
    Ormonde Man
    Sycomore
    Songe d'un Bois d'Ete
    Puredistance M
    La Treizieme Heure

    Good purchase on the Tribute Attar. Not the most bang for the buck, but it smells great.

    I managed to find a vintage white box and there comes a life time supply of arguably the best Amouage Attar. Oh no it's a blind buy!!!
