    Default Cheap but Quality - Putting together a list of Fragrance Bargains

    Since it's a recession, let's all put our heads together to provide a "cheap but quality" list for our underemployed, or younger fragheads who may not have the cash to drop on a bottle of A*Men, Le Male, or Silver Mountain Water. Here's my list of "Cheap but cheerful" scents that are a step above forcing you to rock the Adidas Moves, Brut or Old Spice alcoholic atrocities:

    Cool Water (Like GIT, a quarter the price, average longevity)
    Diesel Plus Plus
    Diesel Green
    Joop Homme
    Oxygene Homme by Lanvin
    Perry Ellis 360 Red (ADG clone, but does the ADG scent better, with greater longevity
    Dirty English by Juicy Couture

    Any others guys?

    The thing is, if you know what to look for, you can get incredible bargains on vintage (on ebay). If not, there are frags like Horizon, Montana Parfum d'Homme, Witness, Royal Secret for Men, Ferre for Men (1986), Z-14 (the one that lists oakmoss), Pino Silvestre, etc. that you can still get cheap without knowing anything, but you have to like that "old school" style.

    A nice alternative to Pure Malt. Can be found easily for under $20 for 100ml.

    Yes! I picked this up the other day, 1oz for $20 @ SDM. I don't realy enjoy the scent very much though, so its not going to be part of my collection. I did end up picking up Canali Black Diamond 1oz for $20, which is a phenomanal scent with poor longevity & sillage.

    Bijan Wicked
    Lalique Pour Homme (Equus)
    Tsar and VC&A PH
    Bulgari Blu Notte
    Halston Unbound
    Antonio by Antonio Banderas

    All of these were under $30 but for LLaM and Equus which were (drumroll) - $35.

    +1 on Versace Dreamer
    Van Cleaf and Arpels Pour Homme
    Good choices. I like Canali Black Diamond as well. And yeah, it doesn't last that long but I still get 5 hours.

    Also love Dreamer and VC&A ph as choices as well. Man, you got great taste !

    Fragonard is a favorite of mine - an old French house that creates high-quality inexpensive fragrances with good materials. 100ml men's frags are $44. U.S. at their website. They're headquartered in Grasse, a region of France where fragrance botanicals are grown. Nothing trendy or earth-shaking, but great traditional scents at a good price. They package in nice light-proof aluminum bottles. Some faves:

    Desert
    Beau Gosse
    Concerto
