So this is a tough question, actually. Because — at the risk of sounding like a sephora associate — yr own personal chemistry totally affects the way most scents smell. Some scents that smell fantastic on one boy, will just smell **wrong** on another.
So... Given I have no idea what you smell like, outside of vague guesses based on yr (presumed) ethnicity... here are a few options that smell good on pretty much **everyone** and that DON'T interact too much with yr own skin chemistry.
Issey Miyake's Nuit d'Issey
Careful with this one, since there's also a women's Nuit d'Issey (which, I think, comes in a white bottle).
This is definitely my no. 1 recommendation for a scent that you don't need to, and honestly can't, layer (since it would overpower the other layers), and that smells great regardless of who's wearing it.
It also comes in a 200 mL (6.7 ounce) bottle (!). which isn't cheap, but, on a per unit basis, it's pretty economical.
Do you have sephora stores out there? if so, they'll give you 3 samples every time you go in (regardless of whether you buy anything). If there are any sephora stores on yr regular beaten path, you'd be surprised at the size of the haul you can accumulate for free. their samples are big enough to last you almost a week of daily wear, so, a handful of visits and you're set for a few months.
Not every sephora will have Nuit d'Issey. But they'll all have Sauvage (good choice btw).
also, Eau Sauvage and Fahrenheit, both from Dior -- both good as well. If bleu de Chanel smells good on you, those will too.
Also. Get samples of this... and layer it on top of, like, EVERYTHING:
The price point is absurd -- especially for a fragrance that's best used as a top layer -- but, sephora gives free samples. (:

My personal favourite that I use everyday is Acqua Di Gio by Armani.
