    I'd say A men has the best projection of those in the list. It should be ok for a cool summer night out, but I agree that's probably a bit more wintery.

    Encre Noire is probably a safer bet for the summer, very fresh, but with nice woods. Good projection, although some people do not smell the main material of the drydown of Encre Noire too well. And I don't see why Eau Sauvage edp should be inappropriate for a young person, btw.

    I adore MiP EDP so that would be my choice. I get good projection and excellent longevity out of this one.

    Encre Noir would be my choice, but Guerlain Homme Intense might be a good choice for summer. However, I'd still pick EN.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Of those you mentioned I would pick Guerlain Homme Intense followed closely by MIP. A*men is nasty junk, but that's just IMHO.
    Current favorites_____Black Tourmaline_____Gucci Pour Homme II_____Memoir Man_____Tuscan Leather______Montale Aoud and Pine_____Sel Marin_____Invasion Barbare_____Tonka Imperial____Dior Homme Intense_____L'Humaniste____Santal 33_____Bois d'Argent_____Nio_____MFK Oud_____Lumiere Noire_____Bois d'Encens_____Cuir Ottoman

    Go with original Guerlain Homme but if corner with these only aforementioned then the extreme version of Guerlain homme is the better one in the list.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
