If you don't mind it a little girly, L'Artisan's Drole de Rose.

Good addition!

Could someone give me suggestions on a fresh, clean, crisp cologne that I can pick up at common department stores? I'm 21 and in college and want something I can wear everyday for any occasion and not get looks from people for wearing something overpowering. I'm hoping to get around 5 suggestions so I can compare them all and decide which one I like best.

My current collection consists of the following:

- Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani (I like this, but it seems very popular and every guy has it/wears it)

- Curve by Liz Claiborne (girlfriend loves this one, but seems more fruity to me)

- Emporio Armani by Giorgio Armani (I like this, it seems more of a spicy scent than a fruity one)

- Fierce by Abercrombie (seems fruity to me and popular with the teen age/high school audience, which I'm way past)

Thanks for the help!

Been looking for a thread to discuss colognes. I've tried a lot of them but most colognes seem too mature for me since I am only 22.

1. Creed Virgin Island Water
2. Creed Aventus
3. TF Italian Cypress
4. Knize 10
5. TF Tabacco Vanille
6. TF Champaca Absolute
7. Creed Windsor, not very impressed for the price, just a lot of rose to my nose
8. Creed GIT, could not believe how much this smelled like Curve, the cologne I wore in 6th grade
9. John Varvatos Vintage
10. Aqua Di Parma Blue Mediterraneo

In the process of getting some Creed Wood & Spice, really interested in that.

Anyone have any experience with Creed Vintage Tabarome? I've only had the pleasure of smelling it once, but it's made an impression

If Aventus is too mature for you, forget about Vintage Tabarome. VT smells like those small glass vials of Ginseng you can get just about anywhere. It's good, but wait until you're 44 for that one. It's also out of production. If you're digging manly stuff like VT, try YSL Rive Gauche. try: YSL Body Kouros Silver Mountain Water (tea/black currant) \t L’eau Mixte by PARFUMS DE NICOLAI (light, fruity, like a box of Trix) Mugler Cologne Acqua di Colonia by Lorenzo Villoresi Rose 31 by Le Labo (doesn't smell like rose. A favorite, but perhaps a 25 and up scent)

Good choices! I'll add a couple: Aoud Queen Roses Caron Rose (urn fragrance) Delon Iquitos

Ha, I own those on my list. Aventus especially is one of the best for me and my age group imo. It def gets noticed by the opposite sex and puts you miles ahead of the guy wearing Axe cut abs. The mature scents I refer too are VT and Windsor. which gave me a 45 yr old banker vibe. VT really reminds me of my grandfather and that's the appeal to wearing it, even though I agree it really is a very "old" scent

Is VT on the same level as Bois du Portugal? I enjoy BdP but it is an older mature scent.

How about: Versace Pour Homme Bvlgari Pour Homme Extreme John Varvatos Artisan They've each got something different going on, but it's three good ones to at least try.

Yes. Completely different scents, but both are mature smelling. VT doesn't last as long as BdP and has less of a drydown journey. VT is 100 years older than BdP.

i highly recommend Acqua di parma blu mediterraneo fico di amalfi. very clean citrus scent and a very premium scent throughout its existence. perhaps a bit faltering in longevity or if you want the ability to have others smell you afar.
but my favorite blu mediterraneo is of course mandorlo di sicilia. a vanilla/almond scent.

Truth! I have a 100ml bottle of that given to me as a present. It's great as a light, pleasant everyday fragrance so I get a lot of use out of it.

I have a bottle of Bvlgari Aqua which is a little bit sharper in smell and L'eau d'Issey is okay too in this similar sort of smell.

And readily available from drugstores for cheap :P

Seriously, AdG is the Men's warehouse or Kenneth Cole Square-toe shoe of fragrances. I mean, I know everybody has it, I know people think it's "fresh" and "fun," but it's awful. I think any fragrance fan would be doing a disservice recommending it to anybody. It has its place in the market, obviously, but just as people here don't recommend Macy's House Brand for suits, I don't see how we can recommend AdG. There are many better "light" citrus scents out there that are infinitely more interesting, and infinitely less ubiquitous (and infinitely less headache-inducing.) Many of us here have posted, literally, hundreds of posts trying to share these in place of the juggernaut that is AdG.
