    Default What's your best buy?

    I know that some of the members may find it vulgar to discuss the price of fragrances, which if you add up the cost of this hobby could be 's or $$$$'s. But I would like to know what was your biggest bargain that you have bought. I got a brand new 100ml Signature by Dupont EDT with 200ml shower gel from eBay recently for 1.50 with shipping came to 5. This is my best value for money item which smells a little bit better knowing that I got it so cheap

    I don't remember exactly what I paid, but I do remember it was around $20 for my 100ml tester (no cap or box) of L'Anarchiste. One of my favorite scents and for the money, almost impossible to beat on the QPR scale. Hell, the regular bottle http://www.parfum1.com right now is only $25.95.

    It may be the order I placed today on EBay. I bought 5 1/6 oz sprays for $15. They are designer fragrance oils that are similar to Very Sexy, Le Male, Fahrenheit, Issey Miyake, and Jaipur Boucheron. A friend of mine says they are excellent.

    Yesterday I bought a 1/4 oz spray decant of GIT for $12(shipping included)

    Hi all,

    I would have to say that my best purchase has to be a NEW GUERLAIN HERITAGE at $19.95 for a 3.4 oz. spray bottle NIB from MARSHALLS. If memory serves...I believe I paid about the same cost for the same size bottle of HABIT ROUGE!

    Rather than the deal you got, what about what's available now? My vote for best current buy would be Guerlain's Coriolan, which can be had for $10.00 for a 50ml EDT, or around $14.00 for the 100ml size.

    2.5 oz Guerlain Vetiver with shower gel $15 at Marshalls.
    3.4 oz YSL Body Kouros $15 at Marshalls (plus it was my holy grail at the time)
    1 oz bottle of Lagerfeld Jako $5 at TJ MAXX

    and the one that got away... a decent size bottle of Jaques Fath Yang $5 in clearance bin at TJ MAXX, but I was too lazy to stand in a long checkout line full of "Yolandas" with screaming kids, trying to return the outfit they wore to the clubs on Friday night, so I left without it... dammit!

    This will sound dumb, but any sample is a "best buy" because I usually buy blind and those allow me to eliminate a lot of bad choices.

    Anyhow... $7 for 1.7 oz Shalimar EDT
    $7 for 1.3 oz Guerlain Vetiver
    $7 for 1.7 oz XS
    $7 (sounds like my lucky number) for 0.5 oz each of Lagerfeld Photo, Classic, Cerruti Image & 1914 (or whatever that number is)

    BUT... Anything I wear regularly is comparatively a bargain. Anything I don't is not, even if I got it for cheap.

    So, though this won't sound like a bargain for most people, but I got 4 oz Bois du Portugal for $70. I also have knock off Silver Mountain Water oil for $10, and it is a dead ringer for the stuff. The other oils I have are not quite up to snuff.

    I am not kidding: I bought Rochas Globe for 5euros, and it was 100ml bottle!!!

    I like the scent very much: Kind of sticky, thick musky scent, with full-bodied leather notes, and also some exotic flowers and herbs with that distant smoke aroma...I love it!
    I would also call Globe a gourmand scent, but of course not in the sweet-candy style.
    It is more like some vege-dish with a pinch of mustard :-*

    I guess my best bargains (outside of Ebay and the Sell/Swap Board) are the times I've come across those Caswell-Massey sales where they discontinue stuff. *
    Just a few months ago they had a bunch of frags for $8.75 each (for 3oz bottles). *They had Vetiver, English Lavender... a couple others. *Snapped up Lord Ashley Cooper, which I quite like. *
    Also when they discontinued Original Greenbriar and Persian Leather, I got a bottle of each for half-price, $13.50 I think it was...
    I circle and wait for them to discontinue Tricorn. *Come on Caswell-Massey, you know you want to...

    I'm lucky in that one of my favorite fragrances, Grey Flannel, can be had very inexpensively on the internet. I think I've found a 3 oz bottle for like ten dollars once. I bought a 1.7 oz ck be for fifteen dollars or so.
