    Default Fragrance for A Grandson?

    For my first "official" post (aside from my introduction) I have a very simple question which I will get to shortly. Although I consider myself an avid enthusiast of fragrances, I've had a difficult time connecting to the current trends and popular styles of current, modern men's perfumery. Perhaps it's my age, perhaps it's the firm, comforting grip of nostalgia and the memories of years past refusing to let go, but like it or not, I'm an Eau Sauvage man...not a Sauvage man. Call me a Givenchy Gentleman, who doesn't understand why his namesake was recreated and adulterated to the point of mockery. But before I digress further, here is my question:

    What is an appropriate, high quality (it must be high quality), modern fragrance for my grandson, a young man of 16 years? His birthday is approaching and I hope to introduce him to the world of olfactory delights. It will be his only fragrance, as his parents do not wish to overly distract him with such luxuries at a young age, or encourage gluttony in any shape or form. This is what I can tell you about him, perhaps it will help with thinking of a recommendation:

    He's 16.
    He's a strapping boy, on his school's rowing and fencing teams as well as baseball.
    He has short, brownish blond hair.
    He's an introvert. He's often rather quiet at family gatherings and generally speaks only when spoken to, though his taciturn nature does not necessarily convey an unfriendliness or an aloof personality. Rather, he's quite a warm, loving individual.
    He's a smoker (much to my and his parents chagrin).
    He doesn't get into fights.
    His favorite subject is science (biology, currently, chemistry will be the following year).
    He does not have a girlfriend (to our knowledge), but he's quite taken by them, enamored even.
    He's currently 5 foot 9, projected to reach 6 feet before he's done growing.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please ask. And by the way, money is no object but because this is his first fragrance I don't believe it wise to spend more than $150. After all, he's just a boy, and I'm not even positive that he'll respond enthusiastically to the gift of scent. Thank you.

    Bleu de Chanel edt is fairly safe.

    Vintage (Cosmair) Polo, is the 2nd bottle on my 14-year-old's shelf, but he's only wearing Bleu de Chanel. I tried to get him into Allure Homme Sport, but so far, no interest.

    Pour le petite monsieur! It sounds excellent, I will be doing some reading about this. I've enjoyed the few Malle offerings I've sampled.

    Ah yes, Polo! One of my favorites, actually. I wear it quite often however and I'm sure the boy doesn't care to smell like dear old Grandpa. Bleu is quite nice, if not a bit modern for my personal taste. That's a fantastic recommendation, and one I will certainly consider. Thank you!

    If he doesn't mind something oriental I would suggest something like Givenchy Pi.

    Also adding Mugler Cologne, Cerruti 1881 Edition Blanche, Best of Chevignon to a possible (re) testing list before choosing a fragrance present-all on budget and fairly age appropriate, as well as quite versatile at any age

    If I recall correctly, Pi has a vanilla cloud effect that is quite lovely. In the same respect, I wonder if perhaps it is too soft for a quiet, introverted adolescent smoker, who might be better suited by something more masculine and assertive, a catalyst effect if you will, to propel him from his stoic shell and bring forth the attention and confidence he requires for his next step into manhood. I will sample it, and wear it, and see how it works for myself, and if I find it doesn't soften my character and make me feel less of a man then perhaps I'll pass it on to the boy. Thank you for the thoughtful recommendation.

    Mugler Cologne? I don't believe I've had the pleasure of getting the old schnozzola on this one, but a brief investigation tells me it might be just what I'm looking for. Thank you very much. I've always found Cerruti 1881 a bit crass and cheap, despite its attempt at a clean, pristine aura, so I will pass on that. As for Edition Blanche....well....along with Bleu de Chanel this may very well be the greatest recommendation thus far, and sounds wonderful for a boy. It appears to have the vigor and fortitude of youth contained in the bright citrus notes and firm woody structure, swith a smidgen of playful innocence hiding within the creamy vanilla heart. I'm yet to smell it, but I believe a trip to my local Chanel boutique is in order. Allure Homme Editon Blanche and Bleu de Chanel await me!

    On a side note, while not disappointed or voicing any sort of dissatisfaction, and while greatly appreciative of all the responses thus far, this forum, Just Starting Out, seems a bit slow perhaps? Am I incorrect in my assessment? It seems there are very few beginners here and that the majority of people tend to congregate in the Male Fragrance Discussion forum. I would think Just Starting Out would be ablaze with enthusiastic newcomers, yet it doesn't seem to be so. To be candid, I find the Male forum a tad intimidating, with some many knowledgable aficionados perusing the boards. Despite this, I'm quite appreciative of the veterans who stop by Just Starting Out to answer questions, offer advice, etc. Your thoughtfulness is... quite thoughtful.

    I don't see anything wrong with the old classics for a 16 year old (Eau Sauvage, Derby). They will probably smell new anyway for somebody who's used to aquatics, gourmands, or the like.

    If you want a modern style, I think that the niche firm The Zoo has very interesting variations on modern themes that are far superior to the mainstream version. For instance, Community is a citrus aquatic, and Louis a modern fougere.

    IMO it’s best to start one so young with something ‘easy’ that won’t attract ridicule from his peers such as:

    Bvlgari Pour Homme
    Voyage d’Hermes
    Cartier Roadster


    Introduce the classics only if he shows real interest in fragrances.

    Perhaps you are right, even though the boy does not get into fights, I wouldn't want him starting to now, especially since he's been training his obliques for his rowing competition. He has particularly powerful torque for such a young man, and could easily hospitalize one of his weaker, but mouthier peers. He's generally peaceful however, so perhaps my concern is without merit.

    I respect the outstanding house of Hermes. I will start there with "Voyage" (great name for a fragrance for a rower as well!).

    Thank you kindly.

    Why not get him a box full of samples (perhaps some of the above mentioned) and ask him which one's he likes? Seems a risky move to spend $150 on something that may end up sitting on a shelf not being enjoyed.

    Good idea and good list. Get something popular and something that's tried and true for someone his age. Then he can get the more niche or more complex bottles down the road.

    Kudos, sir! Not one, but SEVEN well-intended, thoughtful suggestions. Though familiar with nary a one, I have had quite the experience with Acqua di Gio, the original mind you, so perhaps Absolu is a more modern, youthfully-oriented innovation of the old? I will have to try this at once! At the moment I'm perusing the interweb looking for any pertinent information I can obtain for "Lucky" which....and you'll never believe this...IS HIS NICKNAME! Uncanny indeed. If I can give old Lucky Boy a bottle of Lucky and he likes the way it smells then I think we not only have found the appropriate fragrance, we've found the PERFECT fragrance. It sounds a bit sweet from what I'm able to glean by some of the reviews I've been reading (some of these mongrels write as if English is not their second or third but fourth or twelfth language). Consider me a hypoglycemic, or better yet a diabetic when it comes to saccharine fragrance. But the boy may differ of course.

    Thank you very much, I may buy this for him. And I'll keep both fingers crossed and hope that I'm....LUCKY!

    And who asked you to chime in with COMMON SENSE, Scooby? I jest of course, and though at first I scoffed at your pragmatism, the longer I thought about it, the more your idea seemed perhaps the most sane of all. A box of samples...GENIUS!!! Let's see now, should I compose a box of samples, thus far and as per some of your fine recommendations, said box will contain:

    Lucky by Paco Rabanne
    Acqua di Gio Absolu
    Monsieur by Frederic Malle
    Bleu de Chanel
    Allure Homme Edition Blanche
    Mugler Cologne
    Givenchy Pi (if it doesn't turn him into a big sissy)
    Voyage

    What a turn of events this would be if my rowing grandson, nickname "Lucky," were to choose Voyage and Lucky as the two finalists. That would be quite a fitting to conclusion to my quandary. Alas, we will see. What Lucky wants, Lucky will get. The choice is ultimately up to him and perhaps I'll put tape over the name of the Lucky sample so as to not lend bias to his sniffing experiment. Though I suppose the name is part of the appeal for Lucky (the boy) as children, especially adolescents, have their own irrational reasons for things and who am I, an old, doting grandfather to deny the boy his kicks? I vowed the day my firstborn gave birth to her firstborn that I would treat her firstborn better than I treated my own firstborn, and on occasion that incurs withholding judgment and simply letting life unfold, letting joy pour forth without disruption from my stern, critical eye. Just enjoy yourself Lucky, that's what I say.

    Thank you for the grand idea Scooby, you've turned a simple gift into a perplexing olfactory competition and sample scavenging exercise. But what is life without these sorts of trifling challenges to keep us spry and keen in our old age?

    Scooby doo, where are you?

    Lucky is quite an old soul at heart, so when examining modern fragrances I often ask myself, am I barking up the wrong tree? After all he's only 16 in human years but sometimes it seems he has the soul of a 75 year old sage, just sitting there quietly in the corner, smoking, silently ogling his older cousin. I've considered offering him a tour of my very own wardrobe, perhaps Eau Sauvage or Derby or Equipage, but for some reason he doesn't like to come into my bedroom when he visits, which is of course where I store my keeps. At the same time, he's quite youthful in outward appearance and his physicality is rife with vigor, so it's possible his constitution is better reflected in the modern, fresh, energetic fragrances of the young men of today.

    If you view my list above, I think you will see that at least for this go round, I'll be adhering to a modern ilk, straying from the albeit, BETTER, classics of yesteryear. Sound advice. Thank you kindly.

    Happy to help

    Could be a fun day of trying out fragrances, if you put tape over the names you could sneak in a few older classic fragrances, he may surprise you with his choices and the tape removal reveals could be entertaining.

    This is precisely what I came here to say. You may not be interested in modern fragrances but I doubt that your grandson is interested in the classics; for example, something that’s heavy on patchouly, etc. Your gift need not be niche or a very expensive selection as his first fragrance. I would go with something that’s light, fresh, and more likely to please a young boy. You’re buying this item for him not you.
    Selections above are perfect. I also second Egoiste Platinum, Allure Sport or even a Versace.

    And this is different than 1 Million Lucky, I presume? My grandson's nickname being Lucky I have high hopes the fragrance of his namesake is a hit with the boy. But should Lucky be less than stellar, I will consider 1 Million as well. Thank you very much.

    I think fresh scents might be safer to start with. Here are a couple of suggestions:

    Chanel: Allure homme Edition Blanche
    Mancera: Cedrat Boise
    Creed: Millesime Imperial
    Bvlgari: Aqua Marine
    Aqua Di Parma: the Blu Mediterraneo‎ line (fico de amalfi etc)

    hope you can find a good one for him

    I think this would be perfect....

    Frank no. 2 by Frank Los Angeles

    It has just enough freshness to be pleasant and well liked, with a manly barbershop lavender, and dries into a dark fruitiness blended with a touch of rum/cognac.

    Very high quality and unique, nobody else he encounters will smell like him. You can get a 100ml bottle on luckyscent.com for $130....right in your budget!

    I’d probably say:-

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport eau Extreme

    Versace Eros

    Abercrombie & Fitch Fierce

    Azzaro Wanted // Wanted by Night

    The other suggestions above are also great, although I do feel some of them would probably be “too old” for someone that is 16 (more likely to be closer to something his dad would wear, and no 16 year old wants to be known by similar aged females as “the guy who smells like my dad”).
    My Top 6 Most Complimented of 2019:-

    1). Eros Flame - Versace
    2). Sauvage - Dior
    3). L’homme - Lacoste
    4). Aventus - Creed
    5). Allure Homme Sport - Chanel
    6), Tommy - Tommy Hilfiger

    The other suggestions above are also great, although I do feel some of them would probably be “too old” for someone that is 16 (more likely to be closer to something his dad would wear, and no 16 year old wants to be known by similar aged females as “the guy who smells like my dad”).
    I'm generally in agreement but you'd be surprised by how many younger girls are REALLY into mature men. But that probably doesn't apply to the scent you're wearing. If you're wearing a scent that hit it's peak in the 70's, the 16 year old crowd will probably be running away, lol
