    Unhappy Huge Decision

    Okay , last thread now...
    I'm going to buy a new perfume ( as you may noticed in the previous threads)
    And I'm starting to you know "getting into the frag community" so I want something a little more fancy!

    To the details!
    The perfume I want shouldn't be generic! I want a more "indie smelly one", you know something a little extra fancy ?
    Women should love it and it will probably be my signature scent.
    I want the perfume to have that little "extra" ( you get me?)
    Okay and I'd prefer if it's a little "mysterious" and perhaps "niche"?
    Well my budget is around 150$! (And I don't have the time to look for splits!)
    And yeeah I'm a 15 year old male and i want to like "stand out in the crowd"

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe you mean niche, not indie.

    In my mind, indie means potential perfume pending final tuning.

    Get Aventus - so hyped, everybody loves it and you will still stand out in the crowd cos I don' t believe there are many 15-year-olds wearing Aventus.

    Creed - Green Irish Tweed. You should be able to find one in your budget, and you won't need to find a split. This is a great fresh scent you can wear for anything.

    For $150, you might be hard pressed to find a unique "niche" fragrance.

    You can't go wrong with the following, which you can find at any large department store...

    Chanel - Allure Homme Sport

    YSL - L'homme

    Chanel - Bleu De Chanel

    I would really start with something along the lines of these 3 above. You can easily go into a department store and smell them, and others like them.

    What's most important is that you find something that YOU like on you, not that others will like on you. Everyone is different.

    Dior Homme Intense should do it.

    Perhaps an incense, they are somewhat mysterious and generally they are well liked (or at least not disliked). CDG 2 Man is on the fresher side (slightly lemony top) and a bit avantgarde.

    Take Chanel "Allure Homme Sport" - women love it and everyone can wear it anytime.

    Penhaligons Endymion- a rich niche gourmand, very smooth and uncommon, also most likely within the preset budget.
