    Default Crazy cheap fragrances.

    It's winter now, and with winter comes the cold, and my lower budget, due to christmas spending. For a winter scent, I'm looking at very cheap colognes, mainly under then $30 range, even under $20.

    I found a really cheap fragrance, that has pretty good reviews(out of the few). UDV by Ulric de Varens. I was wondering for those who have it, will it last throughout the wintertime? For common, everyday wear, 80% indoors. I'm a big fan of sweet musk too, but my sweet musks are mostly summer scents.

    - Aspen by Coty (Around $15 on Ebay), smells similar to Cool Water

    - Aqua Quorum (Around $15 on Ebay), smells similar to Polo Sport and CK Eternity

    - Halston 1-12 (Around $15 on Ebay), very soapy, in a good way

    Versace, Kenzo and Azzaro fragrances are usually very cheap, but en par with the most expensive designer fragrances.
    Currently wearing: Aqua Amara by Bulgari

    Lanvin Aprege pour homme - it's usually around $15 for a small bottle in TJ Maxx. It's well constructed, powerful, very complex and long-lasting but definitely try before you buy as it's not easy to wear.

    Yes, I have it and it should last you through the winter. Enjoy it.

    You probably won't need a full bottle, so go to ebay (or maybe TPC but TPC is expensive) and get yourself a few decants. For $30 you can get a pure malt and a l'instant extreme.

    ebay Paul Smith or the Extreme version. They don't come much cheaper than those two. Surprisingly, they are very good.

    Rive Gauche pour Homme is $25 for 4.2oz at Walmart, amazing bargain.
    Lanvin Oxygene Homme, $25 for 4.2oz

    Cool Water is going up in price so it's no longer a bargain unfortunately, but if you really want to save cash, pick one fragrnace you love and stick with it.

    If you are a fan of sweet musk you may like caron's pour un homme or better yet le 3me homme .
    pour un homme is probably easier to like for most.
    cheap, and basenotes approved if you care.

    Agree with a lot of the suggestions here, especially Azarro PH, Old Spice, and the Halston range. I would add Kanon Original (citrus/musk) and Norwegian wood (slightly spiced sweet cedar). Each is $7 at Ross.

    Both Perry Ellis 360 White and Black are nice for colder weather & can be had for around $20.
    Also, you can find Burberry Brit online for $30-40 for a 100ml bottle, and it's a great winter scent.
    (other good cheap winter scents would be Tommy Bahama Original & Montblanc Individuel).

    Realy cheap?

    I enjoy these non-designer drugstore scents. They are mentioned as per the way they share notes:

    - Stetson (classic), Royal Copenhagen, Caswell Masey Jockey Club
    - Royal Copenhagen Musk
    - Brut Classic, Avon's Wild Country, Dana's Cano
    - Dana's / ex Houbigant Monsieur Musk
    - Dana's British Sterling

    If looking for sillage and longevity, rule out all except Stetson and Jockey Club. All of the rest are restrained scents. If looking for uber sillage and longevity:

    - Bogart pour Homme.

    Might just be Canadian Walmarts, but honestly, I don't know if you've smelled Rive Gauche, but it's honestly not worth any more than 25 tops, I would never pay the 50 I see it going for online. It's a nice classic anise-based fragrance, but as mentioned, fairly generic and hit at the same time 70's retro-chic was in, which explains the complaints about it being "old manish."

    I have sampled Rive Gauche Light and loved it. I love Azzaro, and power house/super masculine fragrances are my favorite.
