    Default Zegna Colonia or Ralph Lauren Safari?

    I am 15, and I own some cologne, but I personally enjoy the scent of Zegna Colonia and Safari more than my other ones.

    I find that Safari has a fresh, out of the shower scent, but I'm not sure,I'm have a very weak sense of smell.

    Which would you suggest for a High School setting?

    Thanks!

    I dislike Zegna, generally. Safari is good, but you may want to give Pasha a try, assuming you are not talking about vintage Safari. Good on you for enjoying Safari at your age.

    I have the feeling that Safari will make me smell like an old men, which I wouldn't want, as I'm 15! Is Safari considered to be a bit of an "old man smell"? Thanks!

    I also have Clavin Klein Free Sport which initial scent I actually do enjoy, but as far as I remember, the scent really doesn't last long... At all.

    I also have Diesel Only The Brave which I didn't use to like, but Ian starting to like again. It does have a powdery scent in my option...

    Any ideas?

    Although I like Safari much more than the Zegna, neither seem right for your age. Maybe go shopping and get some free samples until you find something you really like. Some suggestions for your age that won't break the bank;

    I don't care much for either, but I completely disagree with the response that said the choices weren't right for your age. Who cares what age you are? Wear the composition you enjoy most as either option and thousands of others would work.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)
    Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie

    Age is just a number. I'd pick Safari if I were you but wear it lightly. I'd much rather have a girl lean in close to catch a whiff of my worn fragrance than to have her smell my cologne from across the hall.

    Zegna is more age-appropriate, but Safari is still more of a personal favorite, thus my recommendation
