    Default Good, cheap scent from FragranceNet?

    First, this is not my last post, nor is it about fake Creeds, nor is it a poll, nor is a political statement or personal attack. It's just about spending a little extra money on some smelly water.

    So, here's my evil plan. Fragrancenet is offering free shipping for the next few day, plus there is a code for $10 off an order of $35 or more. I'm going to order Bowling Green, but figured, why not spend a little more and take advantage of the $10 off. The Bowling Green is $19.79, so the other frag would need to be over $15.21 (but not too much over - I think $25 would be my limit). So, any suggestions?

    If it helps, at some point I may buy Guerlain Vetiver and Eau Savage, but not quite yet. In general, I'm looking for something light and crisp for work or casual. Perhaps Incanto or Blue Jeans, but nothing too sweet or fruity (I also considered Paco Rabanne, but that seems to similar to Azzaro, which I have and am not crazy about).

    So, for those of you who have shopped at FragranceNet, what cheapies do you suggest?
    Marge: Do you want your son to become Chief Justice of the Supreme Court or a sleazy male stripper?
    Homer: Can't he be both, like the late Earl Warren?

    Rive Gauche... do not listen to the heaters, it is nothing like Azzaro.
    Yang.
    Mugler cologne.
    Ungaro III

    2 things: can you use 2 different coupon codes on the same order?
    I would look somewhere else before ordering. Their prices are not the cheapest.

    "there is a code for $10 off an order of $35 or more" - is it a secret?

    Rive Gauche is good, and crisp, but not light.
    I have a bunch of good light frags, but they aren't crisp. Maybe Live Jazz fits that light crisp combo.
    Rochas Lui is considered by some to be crisp and light, and Escada Homme might also be.

    I know its possibly against your preferences.. but Bogart ph (2004) is one hell of a fragrance..for the price.. pure quality

    Escada (1993) is pure class too!

    I don't think you can use two coupon codes, so your order will have to be atleast $70 for free shipping along with the $10 off code.

    Nooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just called - only one per order. Looks like it's just Bowling Green. Probably for the best - I don't need to spend money on another blind buy.

    Deck89 - I have Escada - it's wonderful!

    Aeromatic - check the discount board in the marketplace: http://community.basenotes.net/forumdisplay.php?f=27

    I have a sample of Rive Gauche. I haven't made up my mind yet.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Since you like vetiver based or in other words fresh scents, you may want to look at what Loewe has to offer, it's very unique and will not smell common.

    Rochas & Escada I can say for certain are not light .. they both have superb projection & longevity & overall I consider them heavier than light .
