    I retract my prior submission. I'd get yourself some Comme des Garcons Vettiveru...totally forgot about that one.

    Dior homme sport bud......it's at your local sephora. Grab dior homme too. It will grow on you by the time fall rolls around.

    Default Best summer scents?

    CDG Vettiveru is a cheap niche cologne, but a cologne not EDT so very light and max 4 hours longevity on my skin. IMHO not for a 18 year old. But anyone can wear anything.....I own it along with anbar.

    My suggestions:

    Creed viw
    Creed mi
    Creed Erolfa
    Creed neroli sauvage
    Bond no.9 Hamptons
    Bond no.9 montauk
    Bond no.9 Central Park
    Bond no.9 Coney Island
    Amouage Ciel Man
    Xerjoff Niro
    Xerjoff 1861
    Malle Bigarade Conc
    Heeley Sel Marin
    Bvlgari Aqva
    Bvlgari Aqva Marine
    Chanel Allure Sport
    Chanel Allure Edition Blanche
    Dior Homme Sport
    Dior Homme Sport Cologne
    Cartier Roadster Sport
    Acqua Di Parma Essenza
    Maison Francis Kurdijan Aqua Universalis
    Voyage D'Hermes (Edt as well as EDP)
    Bois 1920 Agrumi Amari Di Sicilia
    The Different Company Divine Bergamot
    Frapin L'Humaniste
    Atelier Vettiver Fattale - best 'young' smelling Vetyver I own.
    Guerlain Homme Intense
    Guerlain Homme


    I could carry on. But these are my favorites from my own personal collection. I deliberately did not put the minty ones in there because they put out an old vibe not so suited for an 18 year old boy.

    Unless the op is Justin Bieber, I think most of those would be out of his price range.

    Check out:


    • 360 Degrees Red for Men by Perry Ellis
    • Bleu de Chanel by Chanel.
    • Live Jazz by YSL
    • and Paris Hilton for Men by Paris Hilton (I know it's Paris Hilton, but it smells fresh, fruity, and most importantly, very affordable)

    If you have a high budget many of the fancy ones above would be great - If you don't, the 360 Red, the Acqua di Gio and the Paris Hilton for Men would be good - so would Michael Jordan Flight, Michael Jordan - Michael Jordan, CK One, Curve Chill and Burberry Weekend might be some to try

    Oh and Mont Blanc Individual might be worth a try too

    Stick with the lighter fragrances in the summer. Just try to find something that isn't too strong or heavy and you'll be fine. Some recommendations would be Christian Dior Homme Sport, Perry Ellis Red 360, Bulgari Aqua Marine, and Nautica Voyage.
