    Default Need help choosing fragrance!

    Hi, first i did my research and thought that my perfume should compliment my personality.
    Firstly, i'm 18 and still in college
    I'm a funny spontaneous person with an athletic body, i play sports and I'm not very quiet, but still i am quite shy around women.
    I always do my best to bring out the masculine and gentleman side of me with a pinch of humour because i love to laugh.
    i like to be portrayed as a funny, masculine and romantic male.
    With all that being said, i do like scents that are sweet, here are some examples of scents that i really like/love
    Armani Code, Giorgio Armani
    Allure Homme Sport, Chanel
    Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme, Chanel
    La Nuit L'Homme, YSL
    L'Homme, YSL
    Star Walker, Montblanc

    i do own Ralph lauren Polo blue sport but i find it wayyy too common here in Singapore, where the weather is always hot and humid!!

    I do like fresh spicy, a little woody, citrus/aquatic, maybe a little musk and i like florals as well. actually i like everything that smells pleasant and not too offensive, i do like the famous aventus but i don't like the green irish tweed because i think its too... green?

    What i'm not looking for are scents that are too powdery and wayy too sweet like Paco Rabanne black XS, Thierry Mugler A* men or 1 Million
    Oh also, i do not like scents like fahrenheit, ADG and L'eau d'lessey if they are even in the same category

    How about Dior Homme or it's flanker DHI...they're gems ...also edition blance on the allure line would do you well...

    Carbone de Balmain by Balmain perhaps.

    Gucci Pour Homme II may be a good one for you.

    Hmm, i didn't like gucci pour homme 2 for some reason, perfumes on my skin really tend to get to the base notes real quick in about 20mins, i didn't like GPH 2 and Dior homme, perhaps i'd try Cartier Declaration and Carbone de Balmain by Balmain. thanks guys!

    Bleu de Chanel sounds like it's in line with what you'd like. Additionally, you may want to try Acqua di Gio Essenza.

    Just spring for Aventus. Or better yet, Creed Millesime Imperial. Or buy into a split and get them both.

    Hi and welcome to Basenotes!

    I think you should try Eau de Mandarine Ambree by Hermes.

    Notes of mandarin, passionfruit and amber. It's citrusy, a little tart, sweet but not cloying. Simple but very well done. Casual, likeable, light and refreshing.
