Cologne Recommendations for a Young Professional

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I'm a 22 year old professional looking for a signature scent, mostly for evening/night. I've tried the following:

 

Green Irish Tweed

Himalaya

Bois du Portugal

Terre D'Hermes

Bvlgari Black

 

GIT is by far my favorite of these. I love the smell of leather, so I've been looking into Spanish Leather by Trumper and Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford. But I'm open to any kinds of suggestions.

 

I don't like vanilla scents though.

 

Please give a description of the scent. It'll save me lots of googling time :)

 

 

Thanks!

High Karate.

Just joking, I myself rarely wear cologne, generally just aftershave and I leave it that.

More seriously, Bulgari Black, Bulgari Green Tea, Bulgari Red Tea are all great.

I have a sample of Bvlgari Black. I mostly smell vanilla, and I don't like vanilla scents.

So, you are looking for a cologne but at the same time looking into Tuscan Leather? That's quite a stretch, imo.

I suggest you take a look at this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/292039/fragrance-spring-top-favorites

High end: Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille OR KIllian A Taste Of Heaven (Imo the best)

Mid range: Polo (green bottle)

Thanks for the link. I've read through quite a few cologne threads here already, but thought I needed a more personalized thread. I'm very picky :)

i love terre d'hermes, so much in fact i bought a huge bottle of the parfum. but it's really a mature scent, for someone 30+ yo imo.

My personal favorite is Creed Aventus. I have tried Tuscan leather before, and it is pretty damn strong and pungent, not really my liking. I'm more of a citrus/fresh scent kinda guy, which seems rather similar given the cologne choices that you had.
