I know going in on a group buy for decants is the cheapest way, but I was just wondering if there's ever an annual sale that includes the more expensive colognes.
Aventus can be bought at a discount at nearly every online fragrance site. LDDM can sometimes be purchased at a 15%- 20% discount from MiN New York, but you'll need to join their mailing list.
Don't forget to check the sales forum here for some of the colognes you're looking for, and of course eBay.
One way to get a little discount is to go through eBates.com when you're buying fragrances at department stores that carry fragrances that the online discount places don't. At certain times of the year, you can find good "cash back" deals from eBates.com at places like Nieman Marcus, Saks, Macy's, etc.
8% off of Tom Ford fragrances, for instance, isn't much, but it's better than nothing.
