    You have more fresh than warm ones. Not that it is a problem, you'll probably make more use of fresh perfumes in college. But Eau d'Issey seems a bit redundant as a marine when you already have a few of them. For fresh, you could instead check Lush Dirty (very fun minty fresh - a slightly weaker version is also available as body spray, where it's very inexpensive) or Lalique Encre Noire (vetiver, but it has some woods, so it'll do also as an evening/winter thing).

    1 million does not smell like a woman's perfume. it's a typical sweet masculine. But I don't find it particularly interesting. Rather, for something warm, I'd look into Bulgari Black, an oriental with a fun rubber note.

    Of these, Bleu de Chanel would easily be my choice.

    Bleu or Play intense would be the better of the two for your last choice. I would suggest one of the DH's as well.

    +1 Givenchy Play/ Play intense
    can be found cheaper than Bleu and from what I understand less likely to be a fake (if ordered from a discount online source)

    ^ Yeah I'd say it's worth giving a trip down to the local mall and try play/play intense on. Walk around for a half an hour or so and see if you like it. Do it with a couple other fragrances that you think you may like.

    I'd suggest against 1 million because a lot of people are wearing that one, especially college age and personally I don't like it. If you like it, go for it. Avant Garde by Lenvin is a good option, a lot of people prefer it over spicebomb. Blue by chanel has an incredible opening, the dry down leaves something to be desired though to put it softly. If they could recapture the opening and keep that constant, it'd be one of my favorite scents.

    Oh, one thing about le male.... Make sure you try it on before you buy it. Best thing I ever did because it smells like baby powder and milk got dumped on me when I wore it. This too is worn by many, and I like to stand apart from others (this rule is secondary to just loving the scent for oneself however).

    So, good luck with your stuff

    Yeah BULGARI black is a real good one,if you can you might wanna sample first,not that BULGARI black is expensive but its always a good idea to sample before buying,especially expensive colognes,either spray it on in the store and leave for a few hours or more to get the full effect or buy some samples,when you buy blind a lot of times you will waste your money because its not what you thought it was.
