    Default What designer frag smells like young money?

    What smells distinguished but not old mannish. For the office or for the town? Classy but also cool.

    "Old mannish"? I have no idea what that smells like. My guess is a "young money" fragrance would be the same smelling as an "old money" option. Try Richard James Savile Row by Richard James for an excellent smelling classy option regardless of classification.

    Bond No. 9- Wall Street, ​what else?

    BTW, to avoid that 'old man smell' use soap in the shower, wear good deodorant and brush your teeth regularly.

    Prada. Pick whichever smells best to you.
    Anybody have a sample of Martin Margiela Untitled or Untitled L'Eau? I'm dying to smell these and I've got lots of great niche samples to swap!

    For "young money" is there any better smell than money itself?

    I would add L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme (not designer per say, but accessible never the less) and Tom Ford for Men to the list.

    The OP specifically asks for designer recommendations in the title! Why all the niche suggestions? Bleu de Chanel or Cartier's Pasha could work for you.
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Polo Crest
    2) Chypre Palatin
    3) 34 Boulevard Saint Germain
    4) One Man Show Gold Edition
    5) Kouros (Vintage)
    6) Mamluk
    7) Tobacco Vanille
    8) Interlude Man
    9) More than Words
    10) Ungaro II (Vintage)

    Definitely Dior - Leather Oud

    Or the newly released Montecisto by Masque.

    Either one would be perfect. Or layer them for maximum "young money" effect.

    Terre d'Hermes EDT. The PP has more of the 'old mannish' smell you are trying to avoid.

    To me The Third Man from Caron fits a very refined young man coming from very old money or young money.

    Classy and cool, and not "old man" (agree that that's a problematic term, but I think I get what's meant here): Dior Homme.

    If you want to smell like "young money," though, go for something crass and faux-luxury. That's easy enough to find.
