    Unhappy Good Fragrance For All year long !! Also Winter

    I am an 18 year old high school student, going to college soon..

    I live in NEW YORK so keep that in mind when you answer.

    So i have a couple of gourmands, and a tobacco type scent but they are too formal..

    I want some thing fresh and fun for the summer but something that can also be worn during New york winter.. Something noticable and something that is going to last at least 12 hours something affordable

    I have le male but its too powdery and doesn't last at all on my skin. The only perfume that lasted long on by skin was burberry the beat but i hated it because its annoyingly pepper smell please help

    I want some thing affordable

    In NYC you can find pretty much everything. The problem is of course price - most of the niche stuff is very expensive.

    I would suggest you try some Lush. Lush perfumes are not expensive but they are solid and very inventive. Breath of God is a vetiver (very fresh and green) but with some smoke (warmer) so it fits both seasons. Dirty is superfresh and perfect for the summer, though perhaps you'll want a touch of warmth for the winter.

    Another inexpensive perfume you can probably find somewhere in the perfume district is lalique Encre noire. Again, a woody vetiver. Not as inventive as Breath of God, but perhaps safer.

    Burberry London - but you're probably not going to get 12 hours

    Lalique White is a nice one. Got quite a few compliments year round with this one.

    L'eau D'issey by Issey Miyake ...I get all day projection in summer and in winter likewise... A classic timeless for the ages

    Agree on L'Eau D'Issey. It's fresh, pleasant but not cloying, great for spring and summer, but versatile enough for all seasons. If you can afford just one fragrance, L'Eau D'Issey is a good choice.

    YSL L'homme - can wear it pretty much year round.

    Allure Homme Sport - Same as above.

    Bleu De Chanel - As much as I don't like it, it fits what you're looking for.

    Girls love those 3 too.

    Same here. I'm continually surprised at how many positive comments I get while wearing this one.

    Kenzo Pour Homme might fit the bill but I doubt you will get 12hrs out of it, who knows you might be able to pull it off.

    TDH EDP- suitable all year round, fresh enough for summer and also, quite likely to reach the longevity of 12 hours

    Was going to suggest Blue de Chanel, but since you don't like that one, what about Abercrombie Fierce or the more refined (imo) version Mont Blanc Legend?

    One of the Terre d'Hermes; EDT, EDP or the fraiche version.

    Was going to suggest Terre d' Hermes in the Parfum strength too. Good to have in any man's wardrobe.

    Yes, this one's a winner considering your criteria.

    Gucci pour homme 2, that always reminds me of winter approaching.
