Black XS count at $43?
This was mine...................
Honestly all the women love this one on me and never had no complaints. Unfortunately, I tried to revisit this classic and I think I''m too old to sport it now but man did it do it's job back when.
HOW ABOUT YOU?????
Black XS count at $43?
Preferred Stock. I still have about half a bottle left that I sniff from time to time to bring back memories.
Aspen and someone gave me a bottle of CK One so I guess that was cheap. We used to have to save up all summer if we wanted a bottle of something good from the mall.
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
Polo Green. It actually wasn't very popular at my HS, but I've rarely been complimented more often.
probably Stetson. still a good scent , too.
Avon Black Suede. I remember all of the high school girls telling me how good I always smelled.
Jovan Musk for Men - I got compliments from my barber every time I got a haircut... a classmate liked it so much he bought one for himself... I must add that I went to a Co-In catholic High School, so boys were separated from the girls.
Would you believe English Leather -- I think it was made by MEM in those days. I am talking about the 60s!
My nephew became a big fan of Cuba Gold, though he has now graduated to the ultimate compliment gettering scent -Paris Hilton for Men.
For me, Perry Ellis portfolio Elite (blue) is what I wore. Graduated in 2004. Got A LOT of compliments on it.
Spend hundreds on better bottles, only to get complimented when I'm wearing a $5 fragrance... -__-
It should be illegal to smell this good!
Nightflight and Tommy
GIT, Aventus, Aoud, nothing. Old Polo or Stetson $3 a gallon: "oh you smell nice!"
Original Polo (Green). It wasn't a cheapie back then though... I still love it.

Well, when I ran out of Poison, I got 'Poison' perfume oil roll on I got at a gas station for like 4 bucks. The 'version of' seemed to get more compliments than the original, lol.
Cheapies I liked for a guy were: Aspen, Preferred Stock, Drakkar, Eternity but Eternity isn't really a cheapie. Oh well. lol
But my absolute faves for a guy were Aspen & Polo(green).
Pure Mysore Sandalwood Oil.
We're talking 1972 / 73 here
Back in the days these were the affordable colognes I used:
Varon Dandy, Luois Philippe, The Baron, Cool water, Drakkar, Lagerfeld, Lagerfeld Photo, Kuoros, Farenheit and all the Samba's, fact Samba Red is still one of my favorites cheapo colognes that I still wear....
They all had their time.......

Wasn't cheap but 80s were Polo Green, Drakkar, or Grey Flannel
"As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round."
None during highschool - both the cheapie and the more expensive scents did hardy get any compliments, but then again, I was wearing most scents for myself, as I still do.
Nothing. Perfumes (for men) flew under my radar for most of my life until I purchased Cool Water some years ago.
