Specifically for my ds (23). He has always just used body spray (not Lynx, <shudder>) but time to move up a notch. Something not overpowering, and not too expensive. He likes spicy scents.

I'm not very up to date, but I used to love checking out and sometimes wearing men's scents in my young and spendthrift days. Issey Miyake was my favourite spicy one. It's quite "statement" but v gorgeous. I'm talking about the original one but there may be other variants to try too.

Spicebomb if sweetness is okay, CK One Shock for Him, Valentino Uomo, Eau des Baux...

If he's young it really depends. Joop is a fave of my brother. An ex SO liked Burberry Touch.

I'd personally ask him if he wants to come with you to try some as it's quite personal.

Spicy Ralph Lauren Safari is lovely.

Davidoff - The Game is very nice. My DH has it and to him it smells of gin. I think it's a bit more spicy/woody. It's currently on offer at Superdrug:

Chic for men by Carolina Herrera is also lovely.

Bvlgari BLV, Bleu de Chanel and L'eau d'Issey are more citrus and/or fresh, but they are very nice.

I absolutely love Voyage d'Hermes - it smells of cardamom.

D&G The One for men is spicy and not too in your face loud so it would be a good transition from body spray
