    Default Best cheapo frags that are like niche or near niche?

    I thought it would be good to start a thread on this subject. For example, I've got Cuba Black, which smells like ashes mixed with a nice soapy/floral scent. If this, or something like it, was marketed by a niche company, would anyone who buys niche regularly think twice about it? Or is there a sort of niche police out there? LOL.

    Thanks.

    Nothing by CDG would be classified as "cheapo" I don't think. Plus I'm pretty sure they're considered niche.

    Carven Homme should cost as much as an Hermes and gets the Oscar for best Picture.
    Rocas Lui is also pretty damn good. I feel the same way about Lalique's incensey Equus and the over the top Lion.
    Should I also mention Boucheron's sublime Jaipur?
    Yes, Santa Claus, there is a Virginia.
    All, closer to niche, than not.

    LaCroix's Tumulte for its Cedar + Incense goodness... and Body Kouros for its Benzoin overdose... "almost" niche in my opinion.

    We ladies love our cheapies - there are often threads on this on the ladies' board and we've all got our drugstore favourites. Need I mention Tabu?
