    Default Fucking Fabulous for high school?

    I recently purchased a 250ml bottle of Tom Ford's Fucking Fabulous and I love it to death, I am wondering if the scent is too mature or too much for the high school setting as I am only 16 years old, and the creamy almond opening of this fragrance dries down to an intense leather.

    I also have Coach Platinum and Dior Sauvage EDT, which would you guys prefer for a highschooler?

    Be yourself and wear what you like. That's a good New Year's resolution. I think FF is fantastic and unique. You will be original.

    Since when do high schoolers spend so much money for colognes.I think Tom Ford is a very expensive brand.I guess it is a new world.

    Don't worry about perceptions....even though you're in high school so I can't blame you if you do. But you could always save the TF FF for after school and on the weekends.

    Haha, most people I know don't even wear cologne if they do its something like Bath and Bodyworks scent oils or something, I work in real estate so I have a considerable amount of wealth over my peers and I have always been interested in fragrances from a young age. When I was 8 I used to wear around my dads Obsession and ever since then I have been buying whats fitting for me, which is why I think I like FF so much, as it is an immensely complex scent and is not really suited for the newbie or casual wearer.

    While Sauvage EDT and Coach Platinum could be the safer, more versatile everyday choices, this Tom Ford fragrance might work as well, even though with perhaps fewer sprays

    I actually prefer highschoolers not to smell of any colognes...at least not in school. If I were the headmaster I’d have instructed you to scrub it off...or get out. Good thing I’m not running a school...

    If you plan on being ***king fabulous then you should wear it. If classmates or teachers don't like it then I'm sure they'll let you know.

    His user name checks out. Seems appropriate
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Dude, so true. I got choked out by Lynx/Axe "Africa" sprayed over rank BO so many times in high school that it was pretty much like Jiu Jitsu sparring (joys of an all boys school).

    Back in my day the occasional dude who was thoughtful enough to have good hygiene and spray on some CK One was initially made fun of for being touch dandy, before eventually being quietly lauded.

    If you like it, go for it, just wear it with quiet confidence That's all that matters.

    Academic Ambergris or Scholastic Sandalwood would be better choices, but Valedictorian Vetiver works in a pinch.

    In all seriousness though, if you can afford it, $20 Avon or $500 Roja Dove work equally well because the average person (or high school student) can't identify what you're wearing beyond "smells good/smells bad" anyway, unless you wear something most-popular or recognizable like Acqua di Giò.

    I don't see why not! Sauvage would be a bit strange on a 16 year old in 2020 to be quite honest.

    Eh, who says Axe body sprays are kosher for school? Lol. Only non-scented deodorants and anti perspirants are allowed. Any ‘olfactory contraband’ will be...uh confiscated.
