    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.

    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.

    Don't recall whether it was a "cheapie" or not (kinda thinking it wasn't, but it wasn't really "expensive" either)......for anyone like myself who grew up in the 80's and attended high school and college during the decade.....this was THE ONE! Forget Dolce & Gabbana, Ralph Lauren could have named this one "THE ONE" during that time period! It's what everybody, everywhere was sporting.....and in spite of it being super popular, it was still beloved by most everyone.

    Spend hundreds on better bottles, only to get complimented when I'm wearing a $5 fragrance... -__-
    It should be illegal to smell this good!

    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).

    Kind of depends on which side of the tracks you grew up on... for me Polo Green was very expensive!

    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.......

    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.
