Buying cologne online can save you a bundle compared to the department stores, if you wanted something along those lines. Sometimes as much as 50% or more off. Scentiments.com is a good source, and bigdiscount.com has worked for me so far.
If you wanted something more unique (we call them "niche fragrances", basically anything made by independant perfumers or smaller companies), something that you'd almost never find on another guy your age, then you'd definitely have to pay more, but luckyscent.com has a decent selection of $50-70 ( for 100ml bottles) fragrances, and you can order samples for $2.
If you signed up here, you're probably more serious about smelling good than the average guy, so I'd recommend staying away from things like Cool Water and Aqua de Gio. Almost every cologne wearing college guy in the country has those fragrances. It doesn't make them bad, but you'll smell like everyone else.
