Well I have my birthday next month and I'll be saving money so that I can buy a good fragrance with it. I think it's safe to say any thing/things around 300$ should be fine.
Maybe this might end up being my first niche fragrance.
Are you blind buying or sampling first?
I might be able to sample some like creeds, kilian, amouage and some others. But I might get some from overseas through my relatives.
But most of the recommendations from the past have been something I liked or even started to like after several wears so I don't mind good blind bought fragrances.
