Hey there Gents,
Relatively new to the whole fragrance game.
The only fragrance that I currently use is DR Harris Windsor. I really love the scent. It's bright and citrusy and then mellows out to a peppery, leather, woody note that just smells really masculine, clean and classy. My only problem with it is it's lack of longevity and projection, so I'm currently looking to pick up a bottle of Terre d'Hermes.
Many years ago I owned a bottle of Acqua di Gio and currently own a bottle of Burberry Touch that was a gift. The AdG was nice, but everyone and their brother wore it so I stopped. The Touch is nice as well but I find it to be pretty heavy and a little cloying. Certainly a winter only scent for me and not something I'm comfortable in very often.
Recently I expressed an interest to my girlfriend to get into wearing some type of scent, so she bought me a $50 sample pack of colognes from Sephora. You get to sample some fragrances and redeem whichever one you like the most for a small bottle.
The fragrances included in the kit are:
- Dolce & Gabbana The One Sport
- Giorgio Armani Acqua di Giò
- Givenchy Play
- Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme
- Hanae Mori HM
- Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme
- Jean Paul Gaultier LE MALE
- John Varvatos Artisan
- Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12. Blanc
- Paco Rabanne 1 Million
- Versace Pour Homme
- Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme
I liked the AdG, Givenchy Play and the JPG Le Male.
I thought I liked the Issey Miyake, but the opening is just too floral and the dry down too woody and flat.
The John Varvatos, Paco Rabanne, and YSL were decent but not me.
The rest I didn't care for at all.
Based on my tastes, what do you guys think would be good suggestions for me to try? I'm looking for scents that are easily available online at least and nothing over $100.
Thanks in advance!
