    Default $75

    Yo have 75$ to spend on fragrance(s) what would you buy?
    That is my budget for the next 3 months.

    I'd do a blind buy of L'Anarchiste and Kingdom EDP. Nothing I can try locally has really excited me.

    edit: If I could squeeze it in, i'd try and get a 2.5oz bottle of Obsession Night from TJ Maxx. I really really like the top and heart notes of that scent, although I think the base notes are a bit anemic. Actually, the base notes themselves are fine, it's just that all traces of the top and heart notes have faded by then, so it seems way too one dimensional. The main reason I want it though, is to try layering it under Prada pour homme. Sometimes I feel that the basenotes on Prada are a bit weak, while the top and heart notes are beautiful and strong. I think they'd make for a great match.

    For something robust yet well-rounded, I'd hit either:

    ST Dupont "Noir"
    http://eu.strawberrynet.com/mfrag.as...d=378&goChar=S
    or Escada Pour Homme
    http://eu.strawberrynet.com/mfrag.as...Id=37&goChar=E

    ...and for something light and uplifting...

    YSL L'Homme
    http://eu.strawberrynet.com/mfrag.as...d=292&goChar=Y
    Mugler Cologne
    http://eu.strawberrynet.com/mfrag.as...&goChar=T#1910

    (Ive no affiliation with strawberrynet btw.)

    If I were in this situation, I would purchase lots of testers of niche houses from somewhere like Lucky scent!
    But more practically, it's better to wait and see the upcoming launches like:
    -One by Dolce & Gabbana.
    ...
    Also try these new launches:
    -Narciso Rodriguez For him
    -Calvin Klein Man
    -Polo Explorer

    Did you spend for samples?
    You did WELL!
    At least in the next turn you'll know better what you want based on your own taste, not other's recommendation!
    Hope you enjoy the remaining!

    For $75 USD (the poster is from Mexico, so I'm not assuming EU dollar), I'd get a medium bottle (75ml) of something from Creed at one of our reputable online discounters. Several of the Creeds are regularly available as both testers and boxed for around 70 dollars.

    I'm thinking about doing this very thing to get Himalaya and/or Tabarome Millisime. This seems like the best way to add more Creed to my wardrobe, as I only have GIT currently.

    If it were me, I'd buy something on my wish list...Maybe Douro, even though it is the cheapest at $90.

    For $75, (and if I didn't already own them...)

    I'd get a bottle of either Mugler Cologne or Dunhill for $25, and the rest would go towards Dior Homme or Burberry London for about $40. These prices can be had at scentiments.com
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah
