Over the past 3 years, I decided to find out the answer to this very question and began blind-buying lots of "cheap" fragrances with prices between $5-$30. While there have been a number of clunkers,...
I can appreciate growing tired of a wardrobe. Over the last few years, I have expanded my wardrobe to over 40 fragrances to ensure that I have one regardless of my mood or my level of activity; it is...
Thallium is actually Dior Homme and is truly spectacular.
During my experiment in reviewing all of the cheaper colognes to find unexpected quality, I have found several of these clones:
Yacht Man Metal is actually Chanel Allure Pour Homme
What you would really like for its warm heart and masculine yet casual soul is Mustang. Yacht Man Metal is great also; it can fit into both warm and cooler weather, and smells very similar to Chanel...
For masculine and understated, but long-lasting;
D&G The One
Antaeus (by Chanel)
What you want is Mustang. Excellent mix of all the really pleasant fall/winter ingredients and very versatile in regard to temperatures or body chemistry. It is potent without being too strong or too...
Carlin was wrong, because it did. Repeatedly.

Andron was by far the best civet scent I have ever known, reacting off of the other notes to make a full-bodied and lasting...
I'm going to mention a few that may fit the descriptions and time frame; Chaps, Krizia Uomo, Zizanie, Wall Street, Aramis, Aramis 900, Devin, Azzaro PH, Lagerfeld, and the original Perry Ellis for...
I wore Grass Oil, Andron, Bene, Cellini, and Oleg Cassini and I smelled like a god! A god I say!
Let's get serious about some truly inexpensive (easily less than $20 per bottle) quality leather scents with good longevity;
Avon Black Suede Leather
Stetson Rich Suede
When my kids were very young, we put them down for the night after applying baby lotion with lavender and chamomille. This was so very soothing that my wife and I began to use the same lotion...
Antaeus. Sadly, I have also had many complaints when I wear Lagerfeld and have to give it away.
Having the advantage of many decades to consider, the only one that qualifies is Aramis.
Mustang Blue, Revert Eco, Navigator. Pay no mind to the cynics; you can smell great on a budget.
Given the notes you enjoy, I highly recommend Mustang. I believe you would truly enjoy it. Woodsmoke, tobacco, lavender, cedar, a bit of lemon, etc. The notes are so well-crafted that you can smell...
Some excellent and inexepensive choices are Mustang Blue, Samba Ice, and Yacht Man Red.
Joop, Kiss Him, JHL, Izod, Obsession, Aspen.
Sadly, most of them would not wash off.
No contest. Antaeus.
Style In Play by Lacoste would be perfect. Kourous for evening wear and longevity is still the king.
It seems that the suggestions made here mostly name scents that would combine WITH the cloviness (clove, vanilla) instead of playing off of it. I have found that the notes of Xeryus Rouge make an...
