The only TF Private Blend I've tried is Amber Absolute. It is awesome and makes me fear for my pocketbook if I ever try any of the others.

Addidas Moves - mainly used for sports, it's got that soap water sport smell with a sweet scent.
Versace The Dreamer - my favorite cologne out of all, still using it. I love the sweet scent, but I think it's too formal and seductive. Looking for something on the same page but milder.
Versace L'Homme - don't really like this, smells somewhat bitter...
Aqua Di Gio - used to have this, it was good, but everyone wears it, and it smells somewhat plain/generic.
Cool Water - hated it. Just hated it.
Pi - didn't like it. It smelled like old French men.
Bvlgari - forgot which one it was, didn't really like it, it was too strong and smelled like bleach.
I'm looking for something that I can wear everyday in the spring/summer, not too sporty, but not too formal. Not too spicy because I'm still young. Would the Helmut Lang Cuiron be a good choice? Any other choices?
If you can get your hands on Cuiron, it's good stuff. Also consider John Varvatos (original or vintage), or Nicole Miller for Men (these are all fall/winter scents, though). for Spring/summer, try Platinum Egoiste, or Guerlain Vetiver, or Burt's Bees Bay Rum.
