    Ok I can endorse Aqua Quorum. I went frag free all day in anticipation of reciving a frag today(I ordered Aqua Quorum, OMS Gold, and 2 bottles of Witness from Amazon). As soon as it came in I sprayed it on, and it really is nice. I like it a lot better than I thought I would, because Shamu1 said it smelled like Polo Sport(which I tried on my skin and hated). To me it smells like a better version of CK Eternity. The Polo Sport I tried must have been bad(it was a tester in a store in the path of direct sunlight), because if it smelled like this I would have liked it.

    I also enjoy both Quorum, and Quorum Silver in the summer.

    So glad you like the Aqua Quorum. I wasn't sure you would this time of year because (like many summer scents) Aqua Quorum will feel a bit "flat" when worn in the dry air of winter.

    Oh, I've never heard of it. But it isn't surprising they smell identical, both are made by Puig.

    I'd suggest Lalique White. Certainly a bargain, and very clean and summery. A nice alternative to the usual citrus-heavy summer fragrances.

    YSL Live Jazz and Cerruti 1881 fit your criteria I think.

    Ferragamo Tuscan Soul. To me, there's a real disconnect between what it smells like (light, fresh and expensive) and what it sells for (next to nothing).

    Bulgari Eau Parfumee au The Blanc. Same thing. Like everything Bulgari does, it is the epitome of quality. Yet it doesn't cost that much.

    Neither fragrance is incredibly masculine so if that's important, then that would be my only caveat. I like 'em both, in any event.
