    Default What budget scents do you actually wear?

    By budget, I mean a NIB cost of 16 cents per ml or less ($16.00 or less for a 3.4 oz bottle). In my rotation, I wear the following at least 10 times a year each:

    1. Tabac Original EDC ($30 for a 300 ml bottle = 10 cents per ml)

    2. Clubman Special Reserve ($6 for a 177 ml bottle = 3.5 cents per ml)

    3. Elsha 1776 Russian Leather ($38 for 240 ml bottle = 16 cents per ml)

    4. Shulton Old Spice

    TwoRoads turned me on to #2 and #3.

    I've tried some of the others: Clubman, Dana Canoe, English Leather, Brut etc. but I don't wear them. I've never tried any of the Axe body sprays.

    How about you? What budget scents are actually in your rotation?

    I'm not sure what they run for today, but back in the day you could obtain the pretty good-smelling Jovan Musk for Men for a pittance and the astonishingly good Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur for just a slight bit more.

    Love 'em both.

    Maybe not quite that cheap, but pretty close, Perry Ellis 360 Red, Perry Ellis 360 White, Izod, Tommy Bahama Very Cool, & Burberry Sport. I wear all of these regularly, & all can be had cheaply at the regular discounters like TJ/Marshalls.

    Carven Homme (Paid $18 for a 3.4 oz bottle and shipping) - I wear it quite often, actually.
    Bowling Green 2 or 3 times a year. (I would wear it more often but then I usually decide on Blenhein Bouquet instead.)
    The original Chaps, Stetson, and Brut 2 or 3 times a year.
    Would probably wear Old Spice a couple times a year if I had it.

    + 1 Tabac, Bowling Green, Pino, Giorgio, Grey Flannel, Dirty, Nautica Voyage (on the fence about this one but its longevity makes me want to keep if for now, might come in handy if we do get a hot day this year)

    Lomani ph, Red, Quorum, Quorum Silver, Halston Z-14 ...
