    I haven't found any that "smell pricey almost niche quality". There are some with a niche aesthetic and I think that's where some of the suggestions are coming from.

    Roger & Gallet has a lot of good ones at reasonable prices: Extra Vieille, Vetyver, L'Homme, Open, Lavande Royale, Bouquet Imperiale, for example. R&G soaps are superb. Buy.

    Bump. I'm interested in more inexpensive/cheap ones. But why have people suggested Chanel and Guerlain and Hermes?... Cheap frags, not mid to high-ish(?) range ones.

    Jovan has a decent musk that is cheap. L'Occitane Eau de Baux is a really nice fragrance that is inexpensive.

    "Cheap" and "inexpensive" are subjective terms when considering cost. Perhaps "$X/ounce" or "$X/acquisition" would be more helpful to the OP, who can then decide the cost threshold. If so, here are a few that, in my opinion, fit the bill:

    Carven Pour Homme - obtained my 3.4 oz EDT spray for less than $20 on ebay (<$6/oz)

    Caron Yatagan/Pour Un Homme/Third Man - obtained 4.2 oz EDT sprays of each of these for around $35/each (~$8/oz)

    Aramis Devin/Havana/JHL - obtained 3.4 oz EDT sprays of each of these for $25 (~$7/oz), although usual price is about double that

    Azzaro Pour Homme - obtained a 3.4 oz EDT spray tester for less than $30 (~$9/oz)

    Clubman Special Reserve (don't laugh...it's marvelous juice) - obtained a 6 oz splash for less than $5 (yes, less than $1/oz)

    Histoires de Parfums 1725/1740 - these frags ARE niche and bloody expensive *if you purchase the retail bottle* (upwards of $200 for a 4 oz EDP spray); however, you can obtain 2 ml EDP samples of these (and most HdP frags) for $10/6 samples, or $25/oz; while $25/oz is not, in my opinion, "cheap", it represents tremendous value (and HdP 1725 is in my top 10).

    Hope this helps!

    For everyone arguing that certain frags listed are not cheap: perhaps it would help if you actually set a certain range (think $/ml) instead of attacking people for posting frags that you feel fall beyond your definition of "cheap", as this concept obviously varies from person to person

    Bvlgari Black
    Fahrenheit
    Dior Homme Intense
    Kouros

    I also agree with Encre Noire, but I find the stuff almost impossible to wear. Probably the least versatile fragrance I've tried.

    L'Occitane Eau des Baux. $50 for 3.4oz. God, this stuff is great.
    Fahrenheit. It isn't priced like a niche but it isn't exactly cheap either. Still, it's excellent.
    Bvlgari Black. How did Bvlgari screw up enough to have this become a bargain bin scent? $30 for 2.5oz is a steal.

    Rive Gauche is the absolute best thing you could get for ten dollars an oz.

    Mont Blanc Individuel - it's Creed's Original Santal done better and cheaper

    Pal Zileri Sartoriale - smells like CdG Wonderwood... some say better
    The Body Shop Amber Oud
