    The *best* would be one that always smells good to you on you, and the people around you agree.

    Devin, by Aramis, might be something you like, or even CdG 2 Man (the 50 ml bottle may be under $80)

    Why just one for 80, when you could get TDH and Paul smith story. And maybe have some left for a beer. Lol

    A frag that gets little attention on here that I think is absolutely awesome and close to niche at designer price is the John Varvatos 10th Anniversary fragrance.....

    Of course there are alot of frags that come in at $80 and under that are really, really great. You just have to find out which one you like best.

    I'd get 2 for that price - Rive Gauche and Live Jazz. You'll have a manly scent that gets compliments, and you'll have a long lasting fragrance that's perfect for warm weather.

    If you're set on 1 only, +1 for Chanel Egoiste

    egoiste seems pretty popular in this category. ya know i saw egoiste cologne concentree the other day for like $40 for 100ml. i never see that in stores though so i think it's discontinued or something.

    Midnight in Paris by Van Cleef and Arpels

    Midnight in Paris by Van Cleef & Arpels is bottled in a dark blue glass flacon, which gives an illusion of starry sky.

    The perfume was created by perfumers Domitille Bertier and Olivier Polge who enriched it with floral notes. Among them you can find accentuated lily of the valley and citrusy notes with luminous lemon. Its dark aura arises from tonka beans, while incense adds a mysterious note.

    From Fragrantica.com

    Look here for the best price:
