    I'd suggest Cologne de Mugler.
    You may like Mauboussin pour Lui, it's nice. Not the typical summery scent, but the top is fresh, there is obviously anise but it's not too prominent, and the base is wood rounded by a hint of amber notes. I think it has already hit online counters and can be found cheap...

    Versace Man - Eau Fraiche. Excellent summer fragrance for the price.

    Other low cost summer greats:

    +1 Monsieur Balmain (a lot of lemon)
    +1 Gucci Pour Homme II (but not just for summer - all season workhorse)
    +1 Mugler Cologne

    Kenneth Cole Black
    Paco Rabanne XS

    Get 3 of the Ralph Lauren Big Pony 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 body sprays - 200ml's each for around $20, will get thru your summer with ample to spare...They arent bad by the way, they are in no way a cologne / perfume, but with the quantity avaiilable, u can spray once or twice on your clothes as well and it should help in getting u better longevity. None of my business, but at 16, u got better things to spend on than cologne's...

    Where are you located? Your best bet is to go to a store and smell them for yourself. Everything you named is good, though I think Gucci Pour Homme II is probably more mature than you're looking for. You can't go wrong if you choose something you like, but you can REALLY go wrong if you let strangers on the internet make your choices for you. Use us for research, of course, but in the end, you need to smell and decide what you like.

    Yves Saint Laurent L'homme: Can't go wrong with a choice like that. It's probably the most versatile thing on your list, meaning it's never a wrong choice to wear.

    I've never smelt it but if you live more towards the coast, Tommy Bahama - Set Sail St. Barts could be an option?

    I suspect there is a very obvious answer to this, but what does proximity to a coast have to do with selection of a fragrance?

    For $75 you should try Mediterraneo or Numero Uno by Carthusia. Slightly above what you wanted to spend, but its a nice introduction into niche scents and safe try for someone your age. You can buy samples of both online for $3 at luckyscent.com.

    Yeah like a lot of posters I tend to agree theres better options out there, but based on your list I went for Gucci PH II, very relaxing, fresh and masculine tea scent

    For the price you can't go wrong with this stuff, kinda like VIW with a dialled up tequila note. Great for summer but don't expect much in terms of longevity or projection but again for the price.

    Why did you exclude acqua di gio, it is a classic and smells really good.

    Versace Eau Fraiche is a very good choice for a summer fragrance.
    If you want something that works year round, Gucci Pour Homme II and YSL L'homme are excellent choices.

    Gucci PH II is by far my favourite from the list. I wouldn't personally class it as a classic 'summer' scent though.

    L'Homme is good too, and Versace Eau Fraiche I certainly would say screams summer!

    For a teenage I'd go with more simple scents like CK One, Acqua di Gio Pour Homme or Azzaro Chrome.
    My most favorite scents that I can't be without:
    Givenchy Xeryus Rouge
    Dior Homme Intense
    Fahrenheit

    Easy Pick. For 16yo I would go with Versace Man Eau Fraiche.

    I love Gucci PH II but for very hot summer days VMEF is better option.
    YSL L Homme IMO is not summer scent at all and I find it very metrosexual.
    Bulgari Aqua is nice but when I had it I found it better in cold weather...
    Issey is OK as a summer scent.
    Versace Pour Homme is mix of Allure Homme Sport and Acqua Di Gio that IMO doesnt smell better than them.
    212 is nice but not that special after top notes wear off.
    Current TOP 5 from my collection:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    4. Encre Noire
    5. Dior Homme Intense

    Based in your taste, you will probably like l'eau d'issey and bulgari aqva.

    Well I see it more as a beachy scent, like VIW. I mean, by all means wear it wherever you are, but I think it works best at a beach.

    Wearing VIW/Set Sail St. Barts in Siberia won't have the same effect as wearing it on the Costa Del Sol, if you get my drift. It'll still smell great, but it's more suited to the beach.

    4711 is THE classic EdC. But you need to reapply it often. Clean citrus - a classic.

    From your list I would choose Aqva. Also, how about a sport fragrance to go with your two aquatics. That would add a more energizing scent to your lineup. Maybe Burberry Sport, Armani Code Sport, or Lacoste Essential Sport.

    Gucci Pour Homme II is my own favorite from your list. I wouldn't limit wearing it to summer, though.
