Cologne for a 16 year old boy?

I am totally out of the loop on what is popular or what they like. Usually what I like isn't what they are liking. Some suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

i have a teenage boy and he and most of his friends love all of the AXE products.... you can find a sampler set in sams club OR find other sets in CVS and other drug and grocery stores usually. he loves the body wash, body spray, and deodorant..... LOL, and lots of it at this age!

I have a 14 yr old boy and he started wearing cologne about when he was 12 going on 13. His first favorite was "Usher" and then I bought him a 1 oz bottle of Polo Black to try and he loves it. There is also one by BBW signature for men called "Oak" and "Lacoste" Essential sport. These are all in his cologne wardrobe and he enjoys them all.

Have fun shopping and good luck.

Just me, Brennie.

in high school my son wore Gio. Last year he like Hugo Boss and this year I'm getting him Polo 1, which is a nice light scent. He is now 19.

My boy started out on AXE body spray but I had to stop him from using it. He would spray too much on in the mornings and everyday I would start out with a headache. He likes the body wash though.

Just me, Brennie.

Curve is really a good one, and you can get it discounted at Marshall's. It's affordable if they want to keep buying it. When my son wore it the women followed him around at work telling him how good he smells. He now wears Dolche and Gabbanna light blue which is really nice but expensive.

My son (who's 18 now) was in a 'wanting cologne' phase a couple years ago- of all the scents he tried he liked P Diddy's cologne the best. Sean John... it did smell really good!

My 14 YO likes Polo Big Pony #1 - the blue one (Karlam also suggested). He tested some at a fragrance counter and really liked it so it's going on his Christmas list this year.

Avon has one I think its called Rush. Its on sale now. It has high ratings

Axe gets my vote

CK Free...just smells clean...my 16 year old son is really into smelling good but he was gagging me with body sprays so I had to step in!

Axe for my 17 year old GS, he loves it and it smells like it too. Sometimes a little to much.

This Axe stuff (never smelled it and just starting to hear of it) must be the Jade East (mid to late 1960s) of the 2010s!

At that age I was wearing Obsession and Polo.

But that was a long time ago.

I actually think Polo Sport is a good one for teens.

Oh please, get this boy started on the right track... None of the 'body sprays' or colognes of the moment (hawked by questionable 'stars'), opt for something classic and classy... Eau Savage by Christian Dior. It's a clean scent and I'll never, ever forget a guy I knew that wore that fragrance...

Kind of early to start wearing fragrances- but hopefully he learns that less is more ! I'd stick with a body spray or scented deoderant so it's not too much.

47, very fair, blonde, green eyes, cool "summer" coloring. Combination/sensitive skin. Vegetarian

please ladies, don't let your young boy wear AXE....it smells horrid

Axe is horrible, it stinks so strong. My son hates it. Abercrombe and Hollister colognes are horrible too. They stink like the stores do.

I can't even stand walking into an A&F store anymore.

Fragrance is so subjective so here is an idea. You purchase the sampler, let him sample the fragrances and choose his favorite, once he chooses his fav fill out the enclosed voucher and bring to a Sephora store to redeem for that fragrance. Cost $50.

The truth is everyone is going to hurt you...you just have to decide who is worth the pain.
