    They say Animale Animale is a good one, but you can buy a refil for 40 dollars and use it just like that...ten dollars over 30 for the real deal.

    Yes, this would be my closest, but its a bit closer to Angel (Women) though.

    Joop Homme - should you find a bottle for retail under or around 30$.

    Do you want A*Men's strong tar note? That seems to be what makes it unique. If so, I have yet to come across one like it. If not, at least one mentioned above should suffice.

    To my critical nose, nothing smells like A*Men. A*Men is easily one of the most complex designer fragrances, and probably the most complex gourmand there is. Animale Animale, Rochas Man, Jordan Legend are all similar to each other, but nothing like A*Men.

    yeah, just get a smaller amount of A*Men. That stuff has been on the market for what, 16 years? And nothing smells like it.

    I think A*Men is cheap enough. Try getting it on discount, or used bottles on forums, ebay etc.

    Vote for Diable Bleu. Just got mine in the mail and it was immediately mistaken for A*Men by someone. Only costs like $13 so worth a try.

    Easily Animale Animale. No contest.

    If i couldn't afford A*men I would be completely satisfied with a bottle of Animale Animale instead. Is it a the same as A*Men? No, but it gives a very similar vibe and it is only a fraction of the cost. Definitely the best cheap cologne in my collection. Very impressive and quite inexpensive.

    Don't forget New Spice by Saint Charles Shave, a small online home-brew shaving / cologne manufacturer. I like it a lot; I think it's a bit toned down compared to A*Men.

    My mate buys counterfeit A*Men and seems happy with it. Not sure if it's called A*Men or something similar.
