Which cologne would you guys recommend blind buying from the above mentioned stores.
I don't remember all of them but I can name a few.
Also, any recommendation for women's perfume from these stores.
Mostly trying to buy some cheap colognes/perfumes which are decent.
Rochas Man. Although I haven't smelled it yet, I've read from other threads that you can also find Nautica Voyage for cheap in Marshalls, so continue hunting. ;-)
+1 on Nautica Voyage. A steal at $20 for 3.4 oz. It's more of a summer scent though. I have a bottle and always am tempted to pick up a backup when I see it there.
Tom Ford Private Blend Splits Costa Azzurra / Mandarino Di Amalfi / Oud Wood / Tobacco Vanille / Tobacco Oud / Neroli Portofino / Noir de Noir / Tuscan Leather / Plum Japonais/ Oud Fleur / Italian Cypress / Venetian Bergamot / Jasmin Rouge / Café Rose / Amber Absolute HERE
What is Zirch?
I like Brit. Wearing it right now actually.
Probably means Zirh.
From your list, Burberry Brit.
For "women's" perfume:

From that group-Rochas Man.
Also be on the lookout for Bulgari Black, Tommy Bahama Original, Tommy Bahama Set Sail St Barts, Polo
Green, all of which I have seen at TJs at a great discount and are worth owning
I second Lolita and Cabaret (but I've never seen Cabaret, only its much less interesting sister Cabotine). Also Anais Anais (rose)
From your list I would choose Brit. Rochas Man is more of a gourmand scent so only get if you like smelling like freshly baked dessert (at least that's what I get from it after the opening fades). Check out Play Intense (they should have it), I tested this a couple weeks back and like it.
TJ Maxx seems to randomly have some David Beckham fragrances for about $20. After all the classic houses and $100+ bottles, the gf's favorite is Intimately Beckham, which I got for like $17. I find it pleasant as well, but sub-par longevity and sillage, although it will wear close for maybe 4 hours. Definitely worth the money.
Brit and Rochas are both nice. I think Brit is more versatile though. Also, +1 for Tommy Bahama Original. This is a wonderful woody fragrance that's a steal for $20 at TJ/Marshalls.
I'd also recommend Perry Ellis 360 Red & White. They used to be staples at TJ/Marshalls. I don't see them as often anymore, but if you run across them, both are excellent.
Rochas Man. Azzaro pour Homme if they have it.
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
Depends on your tastes and how much they are. If you can get all of them for $20 each or so.. I would go for rochas man. It is remarkable. Brit would be my second choice. All the other ones are always drity cheap. Amazon always has the 1.7 rochas for between 20-25.
Thanks, I will look out for the ones you recommended. Does Burberry Brit or Rochas man have good projection/silage?
Last Nov 2011, I purchased a gift set of Prada L'eau Ambree; 1.7 oz edp and a 3.4 oz lotion. I picked it up for $50.
Burberry Brit, whilst a nice scent, was a little too powdery for me. If you enjoy powder it is a nice choice though and can be found extremely cheap.
Rochas, and only Rochas.
