    Default Cologne for 16 year old

    So anyways, first post, but I find the collection that I have made is a bit too mature for a High School Junior,

    I have:
    Armani Acqua di Gio
    Armani Code
    Calvin Klein Euphoria
    Calvin Klein CK One (2014)
    Creed Aventus
    Creed Silver Mountain Water
    Creed Virgin Island Water
    Dolce & Gabbana The One
    Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue
    Givenchy Pi
    Gucci Guilty
    Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin

    Suggestions on what to try again later in life for above fragrances, and any additions that might be suited for me would be nice!


    Can anyone help me get Creed Samples?

    Welcome to Basenotes, and congrats on your wonderful collection so far! I don't think too many of those on your list are "too mature". It seems that the scents that are popular with younger guys/girls are usually designer aquatics(which you already have a couple of)and loud sweet/fruity scents. I don't like to really put age range on scents, but having said that....a few that I would consider young/compliment getter scents would be:

    1 Million
    Halloween Man
    Diesel Plus Plus
    Hearts and Daggers
    I Am King
    Black XS
    Curve
    LaCoste Essential
    Usher He
    Seduction In Black
    Hollister SoCal
    Abercrombie Fierce

    These are just a few I'm looking through in my collection, I would consider good for the younger crowd. But from your list, it would seem you have a fairly sophisticated nose early on....and might find some of these just not that pleasant for you, but others in your age group will find much more suitable I suppose. In the end though, I say wear what makes you happy. Even if it is slightly more mature than your current age

    Fahrenheit is a no no for a teenager in my opinion.
    Montblanc presence or legend
    Animale animale
    Spicebomb

    Agree with bigbz, and awesome suggestions from him as well.

    Too, you could try the whole 24 line from scentstory.

    A couple budget bangers would be Lomani AB spirit millionaire and platinum.

    You have a great collection, OP. It would be hard to better it as it is.

    I totally agree, I'm definitely staying away from Fahrenheit until later in life, however I have been thinking of Animale Animale

    Animale Animale is amazing.

    I'd stay away from Fahrenheit for your complete life, it's not pleasant. But sample it and find out for yourself. Nothing wrong with that.

    Some other hidden gems are;

    L"oocitane Amber & santal
    Annick Goutal Nuit Etoilee
    Lalique white pour homme
    Jacques Bogart Pour Homme
    Ted lapidus Pour Lui


    All between $20 to $70 dollars with L'occitane being the most expensive and its worth it.

    Look at Montblanc Legend Intense.
    For a slightly more mature Fierce, which I think you'll like, look at Chanel Platinum Egoiste.
    Sample both at a Sephora counter.

    I'd also look at Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts for a more playful take on Virgin Island Water.

    Michael Jordan Legend, nice fragrance for not much coin.

    +1 for Animale Animale! Yes, amazing complex gourmand and wonderfully cheap price to boot! If you like Pure Malt, Amen and the like...you will surely enjoy this for a fraction of the cost. And spot on about Fahrenheit as well...stay FAR away for now.(unless smelling like petrol based products is your thing!lol)

    I think your collection looks great, is versatile, and doesn't strike me as 'too mature' by any stretch. I think I might of had two different fragrances at most when I was in high school!

    A couple that you might like are Armani Mania and Versace Pour Homme. Both are fresh, compliment getters, and not overbearing at all. Not sure if you've already sampled GIT but that and Avenuts are my favorite Creed's.

    On top of those mentioned:

    Chrome is a great, young scent to add in.
    L'oocitane Eau de Baux is an inexpensive but tasty spicy gourmand

    Thanks all of you for replying! I have chosen to get the Animale Animale and Green Irish Tweed. (My wallet has been blown, but for a good cause )

    I tried a few mainstream things for my nephew recently. My favorite turned out to be 'Lacoste Essential'.
