PS. Just say no to "1 Million"
So I'm a 22 year old college student majoring in psychology. I've recently gotten really interested in how I present myself and wanted to use fragrances as an avenue to facilitate that. I'm not really sure what would be good for my characteristics and personality but I'm 5'9, lean build and have a well kept beard-- I am also middle eastern (egyptian). What would be a good frag for me? I don't really like the old spice scents as I feel like there isn't enough detail in them. I'd like my scent to ideally have high sillage and favorable projection, specially towards women. Thank you!
Edit : wanted to really put emphasis on what I'd like. Ideally its something that would appeal to women and something that can be used frequently. I'm a college student so I have a tight budget but I can afford up to 50-60$. Thank you guys for reading my post. Would really love something with long longevity and great tones (preferably not something watered down like those aquatic smells).

Dior Homme (Intense)

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.
It's always hard to know what a specific woman will like. Tastes vary.
I second the Dior Homme collection: not too heavy, classic, a bit gourmand. For something with a bit of a twist, I'd recommend looking into Bulgari Black, which has an interesting rubber note that works very well.
+1 on Dior Homme and Bulgari Black
Azzaro pour Homme
Rive Gauche pour Homme
Solo Loewe and Solo Loewe Intense, Lapidus pour Homme, Caron pour un Homme, ST Dupont pour Homme are usually priced within this budget limits and quite distinctively unique, as well as timelessly classy
Give Fahrenheit a try for sure! its a masterpiece!
Some others within your budget that might suit,
Van Cleef & Arpels Tsar
Aramis Calligraphy Rose
Mont Blanc Starwalker
Mont Blanc Individuel
I always like to recommend the fragrances by L'Occitane (Eau des Baux in particular) and at Lush (Dirty in particular). They're gorgeous fragrances and incredibly reasonable in price.
I would guess that oud and woody fragrances are common there so try:
Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male
Jacques Bogart Silver Scent
Don't reapply, don't apply to your wrists since you will be rubbing it all over your table when you write, use lotions beforehand because they will improve your fragrances' performance a lot, buy testers (same fragrance but much cheaper).

La nuit de lhomme seems to fit the bill. But if you're really looking for compliments..... perry ellis 360 red and priced at only 20 dollars so you can probably afford to buy another bottle also
Welcome! I'm also a young, broke, middle eastern college student. well, my pa's from Lebanon anyway.
I know on men I love anything with strong vetiver, cedar, sandalwood and oud notes in it -- which I think would match you. Something I got a whiff of recently and absolutely adored was Wonderwood by Comme des Garçons.

The whole Dior Homme line is nice. They're at Sephora. And +1 to Bvlgari Black, if you can find it. I once bought that for a man when we were about your age.
Also something fun to try is Voyage d'Hermes, if your skin likes it. You won't smell like everyone else.
In her bottled up is a woman peppery as curry,
a yam of a woman of butter and brass,
compounded of acid and sweet like a pineapple,
like a handgrenade set to explode,
like goldenrod ready to bloom.
