    Cheapie: Jean Nate splash. I love it. It always makes me feel like I got out of a shower.

    Does discontinued and practically unobtainable count as costly? If so, then Djedi by Guerlain.
    If not, Rose De Nuit by SL.

    I really love Obsession lately, the original one for women. You can buy it in the drugstore now. It has taken Tabu's niche in my wardrobe (though I haven't gotten rid of my gigantic bottle of Tabu yet). There are so many in the expensive category to love that I can't possibly choose.

    Bath and Body Works Sprays and lotions are nice, and very cheap on sale. And I love Red Door! It is so cheap now and I have gotton the most complements from this scent. From strangers and my family. I dont know why it gets such bad press. The most expensive would be my jug of Bois des Iles

    Cheapie-- Pacifica Waikiki Pikake solid perfume-- $8.99 (it also comes in a spray for $18.99)

    Expensive-- The most I've spent is on Annick Goutal's La Violette at $80 for 1.7 oz. Well worth it, though.

    Costly - Borneo 1834, Armani Bois d'Encens, Mitsouko, Aqua di Parma Profumo and plenty of others, I'm sure.

    Favourite cheapies are by Cacharel: Anais Anais, Loulou and Noa - can usually pick them up for very modest amounts in UK pharmacies.

    Expensive: 31 Rue Cambon - the fact that you can only buy from Chanel boutiques in 200ml bottles doesn't help!

    And from the most expensive - GUERLAIN Spiritueuse Double Vanille, Le Labo Vanille 44 , Caron Secret Oud.

    So far, I have to say that my favorite "cheapie" fragrances are a lot of the EDTs (and lotions) from The Body Shop including Vanilla, White Musk, Satsuma and Japanese Cherry Blossom. Also, some of the fragrances from Bath and Body Works including White Citrus, Moonlight Path and Secret Wonderland. I also really love Cachet by Prince Matchabelli (I think that one doesn't cost very much.)

    My favorite expensive fragrances (that I have discovered so far) are probably Coco by Chanel and Allure by Chanel.

    I'm a fan of BPAL, especially Snake Oil. Their oils are relatively cheap.

    My favorite expensive would probably be Royal Muska by M. Micallef. Yum, but oh my, way too costly!

    Favorite cheapies - Ivoire, Cabaret, 360 (Perry Ellis), 5th Avenue (Elizabeth Arden), Bijan [although it used to be quite spendy] ...

    jovan sex appeal (women vintage)
    Oh, I so agree! I had it in the 70's and it was positively wonderful, one of the best ever. I have looked all over and never see it.

    Favorite costly - Eau de Soir (Sisley), and the tragically discontinued and very hard to find, original Armani for women (Armani)
    Currently wearing: Empreinte by Courrèges
