    Is that dollars or pounds?

    How about going the miniature root? 4ml to 10ml sizes can be had in diddy versions of the full sized bottles for under your budget and if you're already rotating a few colognes, should last long enough to let you know if you want a full bottle. The Burberry's and Bvlgari's seem to come up a lot, and both have something in their lines you should like. Plus, if you want to trade to a big bottle, you can usually find them at a good price somewhere.

    Well, you did say start small ;)

    If you're near a TJ Maxx or Marshalls, they'll usually have one or two gems in the midst of the other stuff. Several bottles in my collection are from there.
    Twitter - @DanielTharp has additional reviews and commentary.

    My cheapest retailer purchases were:

    -Thierry Mugler B*Men 50ml/1.7oz for £9.98 @ Wilkinsons
    -Gucci Pour Homme I 30ml/1oz for £15 @ Wilkinsons
    -Versace The Dreamer 50ml/1.7oz for £15 @ The Perfume Shop (on sale)

    Most of the time I shop online, but these were the few times where the high street retailer had a cheap bargain.

    How about buying decants? (I find it hard to imagine me using up a full bottle (say 100mL) of a fragrance in even a decade.)

    Jacques Bogart Witness @ $11.19/1.7 oz at

    This is a kicka$$ cinnamon with attitude. Don't let the low price fool ya. It is a first class frag.

    I would go with Versace, The Dreamer. It is classy, sweet, mysterious, and certainly elegant.
