fragrances like under 20 bucks!!
i didn't try anythig yet. got only designer fragrances now, but i heard that there are some pretty good cheap ones too;
I recently picked up YSL - Rive Gauche for 18.99. This would be my obvious choice.
3.3 oz EDT Spray
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.

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

Look at the YSL, Puig, and Caron houses.
i'm in college. well i live in belgium so we don't have the famous malls that you have in the us.
Check out ScentedMonkey.com for a ton of cheap fragrances and international shipping is $5.95.
Grey Flannel by Geoffrey Beene
Jacomo de Jacomo Rouge by Jacomo
Arpege pour Homme by Lanvin

Cuba gold - Smells like Le Male Can be found for under 15 bucks
Chrome by azzaro
Body Heat by bod man
Want something really unique? All natural? Like tobacco? Alt Innsbruck Cologne is only 15,90 Euros including shipping:
II est de forts parfums pour qui toute matière/Est poreuse. On dirait qu'ils pénètrent le verre.
Good Life, could you describe Alt Insbruk for us? I saw that a canadian website was selling it, but I could not find reviews about it....
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.
+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.
I just bought burberry for men for 15 euros. it's nice. not as good as my other bottles but it's worth the 15 euros . thx alot foor suggesting these fragrances!!!
Halston Z-14. You can get the stuff for practically free. A wonderful scent that never disappoints.
You can try Versace (Baby) Blue Jeans.. or Diesel Plus Plus.. (very very good.)
unico grande amore.
I just figured out the Alt-Innsbruck Austrian web-site. They only take wire transfers?
Ruggles, you can buy Alt Insbruck here:
If Alt Insbruck is as good as Pinauds A/S-Cologne strengths its well worth trying !
every one mentioned great frags here, but how about... Canoe, big 4 oz bottle for under 20 bucks. A Classic
Welcome to Basenotes Linues41.....Gary
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...

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.

"I exist for myself, and for those to whom my unquenchable thirst for freedom gives everything, but also for everyone, since insofar as I am able to love - I love everyone. Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."
