    Deauville pour Homme by Michel Germain

    This one is a great value. I, too, found a large bottle at T.J. Maxx for $9.99, after smelling in Bloomingdale's in San Francisco a few years back. It smells good immediately, powdery at first but slowly morphing into a clean lavender/spice scent. For those who myopically can't handle any scent dating from before their year of birth, this is a fine choice from the new school. Very similar to Lanvin's Arpege Pour Homme in my book, so one wouldn't need both. The longevity is fine as well, although it does wear fairly close to the skin. I also like the name: it reminds me of Jean-Pierre Melville's great film "Bob le flambeur."
