    Default Nice Guys Finish Last !!!



    Just want 3 Nice frags for under 75$ a bottle. When I say "nice" - I mean good frags from before 1990 that are safe , great smelling and can wear anytime, anywhere.

    I picked before 1990 because anything newer might be too common. Also, my son was born in 1990 and I dont want some " hip" synthetic vibe modern era scents.

    Caron Le Troisième Homme (under $75.00 online, sometimes very affordable indeed)

    Many great suggestions here, so I will chime in to bolster recommendation for Azzaro pour Homme, Habit Rouge and Paco Rabanne. No serious wardrobe can really be without these.

    Oh man, so many great ones to choose from:

    +1 Antaeus
    Azzaro Pour Homme (a whooping $15, often!)
    Aramis JHL

    This would give you a nice diverse trio: a unique floral beeswax (Antaeus), an outstanding fougere (Azzaro), and a versatile oriental (JHL). Maybe add a green with Eau Sauvage or Givenchy Vetiver (re-released recently, but originally from the '50s)...or Guerlain Vetiver of course.

    There are many excellent fragrances already suggested.
    Here are a couple niche scents that are versatile and smell great. They are both slightly above what you want to spend, but are worth it IMO.

    Parfums de Nicolai's New York. The 30ml bottle is $45 and the 100ml is $95
    Lorenzo Villoresi's Uomo. The 50ml bottle is $80. Although it's from 1993 there is nothing modern or synthetic about it at all.
