Aftershave for older teenager - could you ask your older DSs/DDs please...

... my DS lost his sense of smell after a virus, and it's unlikely to come back. Therefore he doesn't usually wear aftershave - but then most times it isn't for "them" is it?! Was thinking of getting him some for Christmas, but not sure whether I'd be "current" in terms of fragrance. What do your older teenage DSs wear? Or could you ask your older teenage DDs what they like please? Or what they definitely DON'T like. I know it's a personal choice, but thought a bit of a poll might set me on the right track!

DS, 18, likes Davidoff.

DB is 19 and he wears LaCoste polo shirt (the white one). I have to say whenever I get a whiff of it as he walks past I think he smells gorgeous.

He used to wear Hugo Boss Dark Ble as well.

DS 22 likes Acqua di Gio. Armani Diamonds is nice too. I think I will get him Gucci this Christmas though.

DS2 and 3 are 17 and like the Abercrombie and Fitch one. It's a bit overpowering though! They also like Ralph Lauren Polo.

Agree with the white lacoste, my dp has it and it's lovely. Think I'll order him some more for christmas!

Holister aftershave will be a big hit with the girls smile

Hollister or Abercrombie probably best for attracting a teenage girl fan base grin

DS 17 has Armani Gio, Armani Code sport and Lacoste (yellow). His friends 17th birthday also this month and we got the him Paul Smith Extreme, took a risk, and both DS and friend both said they really liked it.

DS 21 wears Gucci by Gucci or Gucci Guilty.
His best friend, also 21, wears Paco Rabanne One Million.

I have worked in the fragrance industry 1 million, boss bottled and Armani diamonds are by far the most popular fragrances smile
