    Cheap: Halston Unbound

    I very rarely buy blind unless the price is right...and for $10 for a 3.4oz & tons of good reviews here, I didn't think I could go wrong!

    I am holding out on purchasing a bottle of New York until I get to Paris in October. Their Paris shop charges 20 Euro for a 30ml bottle. Last March they gave me a "buy one, get one free" coupon. New York is an amazing scent!

    I got a sample of New York from luckyscent and I'mn cherishing it like a rare jewel and waiting for the perfect time to wear it. I've heard such good things.

    By far my best blind buy is YSL M7, probably my number one favorite scent.

    Some others I've bought blind and like a lot:
    Jacomo de Jacomo (I'd nominate this for my cheap favorite)
    Trussardi Uomo
    Carven Homme
    Helmut Lang Cuiron
    Jacques Fath Yang

    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    On the expensive side, Divine's L'Homme Sage. (Thanks Thrax!). On the cheap side, most certainly Ungaro II.

    I guess this one would be in the cheap catagory since I went online to find it, and it was certainly very cheap, it was:

    Alain Delon AD Classic, or whatever the first Alain Delon was named. Damn good stuff, incredible longevity, and never boring.
