    Yes, things remain the bleakest I have seen in three years at the local Tj/Marshall's, especially for male frags. One local store has had less than a dozen choices for nearly a month. Almost nothing new arriving.

    CK Shock ($25) and Versace Dreamer ($35). I didn't buy either, but I debated both. I need to wear my sample of the Dreamer more before I commit to a bottle. And I kind of wish I could smell Shock. I regret not sampling that one when it was at Sephora last year. The ugly bottle was such a turn off.

    It might just be a reflection of an industry thing---more brands controlling their product, and by contract preventing sell through at discounters, thereby 'cheapening' a brand.

    Also, when you have an abundance of quality colognes at cheap discounters, that's a very serious supply problem, on their part. I'm sure designers and others have improved their supply chain and forecasting issues.

    Went to Kmart and found a few frags on clearance. Bought a Old Spice AS and Deo Stick for $5 and this Perry Ellis 360° set with 1oz spray, 3oz AS and Shower gel for only $6. When I first sprayed it I thought I had bought windex.. but the dry down reveals why this one was popular back in the day.

    I was at Marshalls and they had 50 ml. Bond no 9 Nuits de Soho that was not priced, so I asked them how much it was. They walked around cluelessly trying to find a price and couldn't. They brought up an Usher cologne to scan through the register. I bought it for 19.99!

    Holy cow! Sweet deal! The Bonds at Winners are priced at $90-$100.

    Just last week I saw Creed Silver Mountain Water.

    For you Torontonians, the Winners on Front Street seems to stock decent stuff every now and then.

    Today, I picked up a couple of steals. Jaipur gift set (100 mL EdP with after shave and body wash) for $40. There were 4 gift sets lying around, and I had previously seen them for the last couple of weeks. The original price was $79.99, then it was marked down to 59.99, and ended up at $40. For $40, that's an absolute steal, especially since it's the EDP. Though when I sniffed it, I realized it wasn't for me, it's definitely an "older gentleman" scent, so I gave it to my dad and he was very happy with it

    Also picked up Mandarina Duck Black, 3.4 oz for $29.99, another solid deal. They still have two left on the shelf if anyone here is interested.

    Last week, I bought Marc Jacobs Bang 1 OZ for $20. I also saw Bang Bang 1 OZ for the same price, and it's still sitting there.

    Before their mass clearance ended on February 24, they also had a bunch of Bonds, but unfortunately I did not know at that time which ones were good/bad besides New Haarlem (which wasn't there), and I stupidly picked up I Love NY for him for $40. When I got to my office and went on the web, I found out that I picked up one of the worse ones, and I went back and returned it immediately. By the time I got back a few hours later, all the other Bonds were mostly gone. From what I remember, they had Washington Square (for women so no big deal), Riverside Drive, Coney Island and a few others I can't recall. I'm pretty bummed I missed out on Riverside Drive and Coney Island, which were both priced at 40-50$, but oh well. They disappeared pretty quickly.

    Some other stuff I've seen there is Creed Fantasia de Fleurs for women, Versace the Dreamer 1 oz for 29.99, a few Michael Jordan scents (don't think I've seen Legend though, unfortunately), Burberry Brit, Burberry the Beat, Vince Camuto for women, Boucheron Pour Homme, a few Guess scents, some Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Van Cleef & Arpels, and a lot of other random stuff.

    Selection isn't the greatest but from time to time you'll see some nice bargains.

    Sounds like you were buying stuff just because. BTW I love ny for him actually smells great. I just wouldnt spend a lot of $$$ for it.

    No I had smelled Jaipur and Mandarina Duck before, as well as Bang. I knew what I was getting with Jaipur, but I really wanted to give it to my dad. Mandarina Duck is nice but for the regular price I wouldnt buy it, however at $30 it's pretty good. And Bang I had been interested in for a while, but I wanted a smaller size because I don't see myself using it frequently, so 1 OZ was perfect for me.

    And I smelt I Love NY For Him, it wasn't bad but I didn't know if I really liked it enough to actually keep it. At regular price tag, I don't know who the hell would buy it. Even at $40, I was unsure if I wanted it. In hindsight, I probably should've kept it and resold it for a higher price (arbitrage ) but oh well.

    My TJ Maxx and Marshall's continue to be pretty barren. Mont Blanc Legend has been the only decent new sighting.

    TK Maxx in the UK has precious little to offer at the moment: 50ml Dirty English for £20, 75ml David Beckham Instinct for £15, 50ml Kenneth Cole Reaction £13... The latter being the only one I haven't tested. Is it worth a punt??
    Smelling good on a budget!

    Just visited my local Marshall's, nothing worth buying but everything they did have was pretty much $19.99 and under (David Beckham Instinct, Nautica Pure, and a bunch of Polo stuff).

    That's a pretty good price for Reaction. It's not a groundbreaking scent but it does smell very nice. If you need a pleasant, inoffensive scent go for it. If you find that really boring though and prefer something more "busy" and loud and you're not a fan of fruity/citrusy fragrances then pass on it.

    We have a ton of TJ Maxx's and Marshalls out here and they have had total crap for quite a while. The last really good frag that I remember seeing at TJ's was Guccy Envy about 2 years ago and like an idiot I didn't buy it. Of couse we all know what happened to Envy not long after that!!!

    Bought a 4.2oz bottle of police to be or not to be on clearance for 16.99 on clearance at Ross. I think its pretty good. It reminds me of joop homme wild. It lasts a long time and projects really good also. It's a sweet scent with a little spicey edge to it. The bottle is a ridiculous looking skull.

    I hit up Winners yesterday.

    1) Marc Jacobs "Bang Bang" 30ml - $19.99 - I purchased this as I really like the original and hadn't seen this flanker anywhere before.

    2) Creeds $129-180: Royal Oud, GIT, Silver Mountain Water, etc.

    There were a few others that I considered (Declaration backup bottles, etc.) but the selection still isn't quite what I'd like.

    Winners at downtown Vancouver BC has Creed Royal Oud, Himalaya, Green Irish Tweed for $180 CAD (4oz.) I picked up GIT for my boyfriend. I'm not too big on Creed but he likes the clean scent.

    Did you go to the Winners on Front St? If so, that bottle of Bang Bang was probably the one that I saw there about 3 weeks ago haha, I guess they marked it down even more.

    I feel like in the last 3 months the TJ Maxx and the Marshall's around me are carrying MUCH fewer fragrances... it is less than half the number they were carrying in Oct Nov Dec.
    Top notes of... sweat, gasoline, motor oil; a heart of deer musk and gunpowder, resting on a base of sex and testosterone... Mandom.
