    Pierre Cardin Black, 2.5 oz but that's not saying much IMO.

    From reading reviews, what concerns me with the Cuba Variety pack: the Gold smells like Le Male and I don't like Le Male; the Blue smells like Chrome and I already have Chrome; the Red has tobacco scents and I want to stay away from tobacco scents.

    Thanks for your advice.

    I would go for Cuba Blue. Where are you getting those Perry Ellis frags for $10?

    I voted for Perry Ellis Reserve (but I would choose 360 Red, 360 White, or 360 Black over it if those were also options). Reserve is nice too though. It reminds me of Platinum Egoiste and Fierce.

    Well 360 White is a LeMale knockoff, and the OP said he didn't like that. 360 Red is probably something he would like because it smells like Aqua Di Gio.

    A couple on sale at a local Ross store and a couple on Amazon. Local store actually has the Portfolio Elite for $15 and 3.4 oz.

    I'd say go with Carlos Santana. One of my favorite designer vanilla scents.

    Haven't smelled any of these, but a good citrus/fresh that is always priced cheaply is Vesace Baby Blue Jeans.

    I've smelled and owned a few of these. I still have Santana and like it. For the money, Santana is very good.

    I also have ( and like ) Ellis 360 Red for Men. I don't think you could go wrong with either.

    Santana hands down. Cuba Gold as a second.
