I bought a 1.7 oz bottle of Rochas Man for $19.99 at TJ Maxx. It seems like a slightly toned down Animale Animale, but with a coffee note added. I really like it!
I bought Givenchy Very Irresistible and Paco Rabanne PH for half-off at Kohl's. They had a few at 50% off.
1. Montale Wild Aoud
2. Amouage Jubilation XXV
3. Montale Red Vetyver
4. Taur L'air du Desert Marocain
5. ELdO Fat Electrician
Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that's easy. What's hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity.

"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."

Went into Ross, and it was a fluke..
1.7 ox True Religion @ Ross for 20.99 so I scooped it up.. Kind of a blind buy.. I sampled it once in the past, but remembered it to me more of a citrus frag, it's quite a leather scent, but very very modern. As reviewers complain, the longevity isn't exactly the best, and the projection is odd, it's there but it's like periodically aromatic. I really love the smell though, it's an outstanding leather. The bottle is a beaut too.
And, although it's not the fragrance for this time of year, something I've been looking for in this size bottle for a while.. Nautica Oceans 1.7 oz for 12.99! That's rock bottom there. As for this fragrance, it's a long the lines of Sunset Voyage, Voyage, IZOD, and Set Sail St Barts, considerably a tropical fragrance, but this one really hits the spot. One of Nautica's best in recent years for sure. Ross also has a ton of odds and ends there in their frags case; TJM had a lot of new stuff, FINALLY.. Gonna check out Marshall's tomorrow perhaps, as I'm looking diligently for Artisan and Vintage.
Walmart.com has 4 Burberry bottles for $25 clearance. The only one for men is Brit. However, it doesn't say the size and the pic is wrong.
3 Creeds at TJ Maxx: Original Vetiver, Royal Water, Silver Mountain Water - at least in the european stores - came across them first hand in one of their London stores (available also online, check for prices). Should just be a matter of time until they are in the US as well - then again they are still not worth what they are being charged for in my opinion but that's up for everyone to decide individually.
amid a throng of rubbish at the Amherst, Massachusetts TJMaxx (the perfumes, I mean, not the bratty students), three bottles of Shalimar EdC, $49.99 each.
The Las Vegas Marshalls had a humongus selection. Disappointingly, not one of the 400 or 500 bottles interested me.
Lanvin Arpege blind buy at Maxx, very pleased.
