    Hello

    Was just wondering if someone could recommend me a good smelling perfume, one that won't be too expensive but also one that is not commonly used by people (e.g. 1 million)

    Any suggestions would be appreciated! :bigsmile:

    Well the ones I currently use are; Jean Paul Gaultier summer fragrance,I have the winter one too. The winter one is a bit stronger, but I think it smells better. I also have Joop Homme Wild, but I've only used it a couple if times, the one I use most days is Hollister cologne. It's quite sweet.

    Where is it going to be worn?

    If you're looking for an every day scent try these:

    Burberry Brit, supposedly a cold weather scent but I think it works well in summer too so is an all rounder. Best way to describe the smell is slightly floral with a lot of powder in. Smells very clean, you will get compliments with it.

    Versace The Dreamer, same again really but this has more of a clean laundry smell. The opening is a bit harsh (I like it, some don't) but after the first 20 mins it is fantastic. It's solid gold, massive compliment getter.

    Rochas Man, more of an Autumnal/Winter one but at that price it's a steal. It smells like a more sophisticated 'Lynx Dark Temptation' (the chocolate one if you've smelled that). Don't be put off by the Lynx comparison, it is far better.

    Boss Bottled, I'd describe this as fruity & clean. strong cinnamon & apple smell. It's a classic.

    Can't go wrong with any of these really, The Dreamer and Boss Bottled were big in the 90's but are not worn so much now. If there was a specific occasion I could start pulling out wild cards but those are all likeable, reasonably safe choices.

    Thanks both for the perfumes! Checking out these too!

    I'll be using them mainly on a night out to a bar, not so much an everyday perfume, but that's something I'm thinking of looking into aswell!

    Well in that case buy this.

    Here is a review.

    I'd recommend this as well. It smells like a mixture of cocoa, tobacco and cherry. I own both of those as well as the ones I linked above and the Malt is by far my favourite.
