    Avon Black Suede Touch - pure comfort peppery vanilla. It has huge competition with other evening scents I own but I often use body spray (that is less peppery and more vanilla than EDT) before sleep. It also has signature scent potential.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    It looks like different people have different measure of what is inexpensive and what not . I wouldnt consider any Chanel fragrance to be inexpensive. Actually I think they are way overpriced for what you get.

    Even Avon fragrance I mentioned costs here around 17 euros and you rarely get anything designer bellow 30 unless you are buying from wholesalers.

    Halston Z-14 and YSL Rive Gauche. Both are quality, and can be had for under $25 most of the time.

    Giorgio for Men. Sheer opulence for such a pittance - it's almost embarrassing.

    McGraw and McGraw Southern Blend. My "Sears" scents. Those are my personal favorites, but perhaps even better for cheaper is my wife's Tea Rose by Perfumer's Workshop. Big bottle for under $10.

    Caron masculines and old YSL ($11.99 for YSL Jazz, a bit more for Kouros) are always good deals.

    Mitsouko. Worth it at any price, but seriously, relatively moderate priced on the online fragrance sites.

    Just because you got a good deal on a YSL or Guerlain, it is not widely considered an inexpensive frag.

    Kind of depends what the price point of "inexpensive" is. But for me Rive Gauche Pour Homme and Versace L'Homme are great, highly regarded by many here and affordable.

    I would have to say just about Burberry - Burberry Men, London, Brit. Can get 3.4oz bottles for $25 bucks sold as a testers.

    Of these, original Burberry for Men - got it for $24 USD new tester. I have never found cheaper, and I actually LOVE the fragrance
