    I recently picked up YSL - Rive Gauche for 18.99. This would be my obvious choice.

    Extremely likely to be found under 20 bucks and all smelling very distinguished, thus very good value for money:
    Grey Flannel by Geoffrey Beene, a further vote for YSL Rive Gauche, Halston Z14, Tabac Original, Quorum and Agua Brava by Antonio Puig, Caractere by Daniel Hechter, Nature by Yves Rocher, to name only of few, but in almost all of these cases extensive testing is required, since they are all very potent, yet none cheap smelling frags

    Pino Silvestre is incredibly cheap and a pretty good perfume. One of the best representatives of the pine note. You don't need to buy blenheim bouquet to learn about pine. Acqua di Selva is another alternative, also very cheap in some websites.

    Extra Vieille by Roger Gallet is also cheap (you have to look for the right store) and is a true classic. Excellent cologne with lots of orange.

    Dunhill Edition is another pretty good perfume that can be bought for a fraction of the original cost in some websites.

    Check this one out. It's called Diesel Plus Plus and only $11.86 shipped from Amazon. I bought a bottle for a friend recently and liked it enough to buy myself a bottle for such a cheap price. Be sure you're buying from Amazon themselves and it should say Ships from and sold by Amazon.com. I don't know what country you're in so... There are fakes out there so be careful who you buy from.

    IMO, it would depend on if school means middle school, high school, or college for Rive Gauche. I know it has a huge following here, and I understand it. I really do. It's a great fragrance, and cheap (so a good suggestion). I'd just recommend testing it first. I'm in my 30s and even find it a bit mature for my tastes. Young at heart I guess.

    Welcome to Basenotes Linues41. My recommendation would be Cool Water. I got my large tester bottle online for about $15. Great for school.

    Indeed. Rive Gauche has a sort of traditional vibe to it. Typically, not many (I am not assuming you are, Linues41) younger persons are used to it, IMO. Though, true, many younger folk here on BN wear and rate it highly.

    You might want to try out fragrances by;

    Anthony Logistics - Spirit and Energy are the best, But all are worth a smell.
    C.O Bigelow - Blue Elixir and Red Elixir are the best if I remeber correctly
    The Body Shop - Of a Man

    They make fragrances in the $20 range that can compete with most of the designers. Your millage may vary.

    All are quite good quality. And are quite easy to track down at any decent mall.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    I'd certainly give RG a test sample. If you're in college, I'm sure you could pull it off if it fits your tastes. It's a great suggestion for an inexpensive, great quality frag. I just wouldn't recommend blind buying it (what my initial post was getting at) as it is mature (traditional as Matthew calls it).

    +1 for cuba gold, so worth the price and it lasts long on me, about 10 hours.

    try belcam knockoffs, they sell them at walmart here in the US and i think they are pretty good for the price. the few that i have smelled arent bad. i cant say for longevity but the polo one smelled very strong, the armani code was nice but smelled a bit weak at first.

    Halston Z-14. You can get the stuff for practically free. A wonderful scent that never disappoints.

    This one has been on my to try list since you first posted about it last year. I can't get the website to appear as a store. I'm in Dusseldorf next week and would love to have a bottle shipped there. Any tips on how to order?
    Thanks.

    I love this scent. I just can't wear it. Scent memory is so powerful, that it brings me back to the days of disco. For younger people who weren't around this one when it was popular though, I think you can't go wrong for the price especially.

    Once and awhile I like what a call a good cheap thrill - which entails me to go out and purchase a cheap scent that smells good under $20.00 and wearing it for a few days / weeks then disposal it properly or giving it away.

    Such recommendations I have are: Animale for men, Aspen, Stetson, Grey Flannel, Bod Black & Bod 24K, Body Heat, Colors for men - to name a few...

    But surely the outstanding beer you have makes up for the lack of shopping malls!

    Back on topic, Jacques Bogart Pour Homme & One Man Show are keepers and so are Stetson, Grey Flannel, Quorum, Diesel Zero Plus, Jacomo de Jacomo (Black & Red), Halston (Z-14, Z-12 & Catalyst) to name a few.
