    Default teen fragrance recommendations

    So I'm a 16 year old boy and I've been looking for a good everyday 'teen' fragrance which is a bit different compared to what everybody else wears and also get away from lynx/axe. Most of the stuff people wear in my age group is driven by brand image like Ralph Lauren blue/red or Pacco Raban 1 million mostly. I can't really remember what things I like from the airport or store because they have stupid french names which i can't pronounce. I had some A&F fierce that smelt nice but it's so obviously Abercombie; plus I'm not the kind of person who wears A&F.

    I went to house of fraeser and had a good browse. YSL la nuit de la home smelt good and I have L'Eau D'Issey Pour Homme on my hand and I love it but i think it might be too manly or distinctive for my age . However stuff like bleu de channel was too 'manly'/'old' and i didn't like marc jacobs Bang / Bang Bang

    I want some thing that's bearable for the person sitting next to me but youthful but still with 'depth' (whatever that is). Even though I'm mature in character I don't want something too mature or manly.

    You didn't mention any limits on price so I'm going to suggest Creed Original Santal. You can get a four ounce bottle for around 120 online. You will be the only one wearing it in your peer group and it will make a very good impression.

    Test out some of these:

    Burberry London
    Armani Code
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport

    Or you can be bold and rock the Dior Fahrenheit like I used to when I was 16.

    I'm not made out of money ( I wish I was) let's say £50 which I suppose is reasonable: although I always feel a bit lost in male grooming and fragrance

    Hahah, I think you'll do fine here.

    Try these ones:

    Chanel Allure - My first all around fragrance; inoffensive yet sophisticated.
    YSL L'Homme
    D&G The One - Great one if it lasts on your skin, the ladies love it.
    Gucci PH 2
    Dior Homme - Some might find it a bit feminine
    John Varvatos Original - Great leather/plum combo
    Givenchy Play Intense - If you're into coffee

    If you find Bleu too manly/old than you're in for a rough ride finding a much likeable/mainstrean/younger (to some degree) scent. Boss Bottled (a.ka no.6) works wonders with the ladies, it's suits the youth well, not everybody is going to be wearing it, and the best part is its cheap.
    Well enjoying what you're wearing is crucial, it is of the utmost importance to wear something that others like as well.

    Default teen fragrance recommendations

    Armani Code, Jpg Le Male, Mont Blanc Individuale, cool water, eau des baux, acqua di gio, Michael Jordan Legend, polo blue.

    If you find something you like it may be good to take a picture or write it in your phone. Please be sure to test it on you skin as well as the tester strips will only give you a partial picture of what it will smell like.

    Hey I am 16 too! I agree with your choice of La Nuit, it's a great scent, and as far as smelling unique, most people will just go straight for l'homme, so you should be good. Some others for you to try:

    The Chanel Allure line (sport, blanche)
    Gucci Pour Homme 2
    Versace eau fraiche

    If you love L'Eau D'Issey, go for it, it was one of my first frags. Totally suitable for a teenager.

    Actually, I'm going to resurrect an old frag (20 years old this year, damn!), that is no "old man" by any means, and 20 years ago was everywhere, but today would be very rare and make you smell quite unique. Tommy by Tommy Hilfiger.

    Also, let us know what versions of Lynx you like, a lot of them are attempts to rip off other scents (and when I say attempts, I mean cheap, nasty, smell terrible attempts), so based on what cans on Lynx you like the smell of, we could give you better recommendations. So for instance if you like Dark Temptation, then I'd say check out Play Intense, L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme, A*Men and Rochas Man. All of which smell way better than Dark Temptation (which, along with Africa, is probably the least "nasty" scent Lynx makes).

    I was thinking about this again....and I think Diesel Plus Plus would be a great scent for a young dude. Awesome sweet and long lasting unique smell....and it's only about $15 for a 2.5oz. One of my fav cheapies, even if I'm probably a little outside it's targeted demographic!
