mont blanc individuel ..
Solara Homme by Lomani
Thanks guys, can you please keep on recommending!
As a general rule many many of the very best fragrances can be found for that price by watching eBay and the discount perfume sites like cheap smells, duty free perfumes etc.
So maybe it would be better to figure out what you really want and then look for the deals...?
It's really only "cheap" if you like it and a LOT of fragrances can be purchased for under £35 if you buy the smaller sizes.
Anyway, try this - Agua di Colonia Concentrada by Alvarez Gomez.
Wonderfully crisp citrus and very inexpensive.
Jacomo de Jacomo Rouge
The entire Aramis line should fit that descriptor. My favorites are JHL and Havana, but nearly all of them are at least "good". If powerhouses are your thing, then there is always the Giorgio for Men re-release (but look for the dark mossy green colored juice as the light green stuff in about 25% of the re-release bottles is not as good).
Current Top Favorites:
1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
4) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie
6) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
9) Polo vintage (Ralph Lauren) - tie
9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie
9) Oud Shamash (The Different Company) - tie
Gianfranco Ferre Bergamotto Marino. So cheap online and it is great. A salty sea breeze of a thing.
Also, (believe me), Yardley Citrus and Wood. It is only a few pounds!! See Odysseusm's review!
Most of the Lush line is cheap and excellent, esp Breath of God, Dirty, and B scent. And if it's under 35BP, the Aramis line (Aramis 900, Tuscany etc) has a great quality/price ratio.

-Thierry Mugler Ice Men
-Dunhill Desire Red
-Mont Blanc Individuel (OS clone)
I personally love going to TJ Max, Ross, etc., and just buying whatever they have for $10/3.4oz, if it smells good, great! If not, well I found myself a new room spray.
L'Essence de Cerruti - can't recommend it highly enough.
Using the following exchange rate where 35 British Pounds comes to 53 Australian dollars, and assuming you're happy to shop online.
I bought a 30ml bottle of Van Cleef & Arpel's Tzar the other day off the shelf for $13! Never been the biggest fan of this one (I like Pour Homme better) but I couldn't pass it up; I've had it on my wrist since and it's a bit of a powerhouse, a great fougere that is rarely this cheap in this country. Brilliant in cool weather and actually, now I've given it more of a chance, it reminds me a little of Worth Pour Homme vintage (minus the depth and x-factor) which I'll gladly pay over $100 for so they're obviously doing something right.
Mind you this was the solid green bottle and not the transparent one which I think is a reformulation. Don't quote me though as I'm not an expert on VC&A's stuff.
You should also be able to pick up Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme for around $15-20 in the 30ml size. Some say it smells like Patou Pour Homme, but whether it does or doesn't I still love it. It's one feral powerhouse of an animalic. Probably the best there is, designer wise, now Kouros has been tamed and shamed.
VC&A's Midnight in Paris can regularly be found for around $50 dollars
Lanvin l'Homme is a great fresh-spicey scent for warmer weather and you shouldn't pay more than about $20 for 100ml, but it comes in 50 and 30ml bottles if you want to grab a major bargain though I wouldn't advice it as you need to apply this one generously. As an added bonus it's liable to fetch many compliments, and by the same token Lanvin Vetiver (now discontinued, unfortunately but still available if you snoop around) sells for the same. Just don't go into it thinking it's a Vetiver because it isn't, although it does have a very subtle vetiver note, but it is a good fragrance and I prefer it to l'Homme myself.
A small bottle of Givenchy's Pi or Lanvin's Avant Garde can both be purchased for well under $50, but I would recommend a larger bottle for the latter as the atomiser is like a firehose and the juice drains fast, but it's a great gourmand-like experience which won't make you feel fey and isn't cloying.
Carven's Vetiver, Royall Lyme's Vetiver and Roger & Gallet's vetiver are all very cheap and solid. I'd also recommend Gingembre by Roger & Gallet.
Eau de Lalique (fresh-spicey unisex cologne) Lalique White (distinguished citrus with woodsy base) and Encre Noire (dark, earthy vetiver) are all less than you've cited.
Habit Rouge (possibly a smaller bottle) Heritage and Coriolan (which, though discontinued, can still be found online at a good price) and Eau de Guerlain, if you can find it, can sometimes sell for around $50 as do many other Guerlain colognes, but aside from that one the only one I would recommend is Cologne du 68
Chopard Pour Homme is a very safe fresh-spicey scent with interesting citrus on top that can usually be had for between 20-30, and while they're more expensive Noble Cedar and Noble Vetiver (I paid just under $50 each) are both incredible.
Givenchy Gentleman, Xeryus, Xeryus Rouge, Into The Blue and Monsier Givenchy (50ml vintage, if you're lucky) can all be found at around for $50
Joop! Homme, Nightflight and Rococo (this one being discontinued but still available if you shop around) are all quite good, and well under your set price.
Occasionally one finds Annick Goutal fragrances (especially the 1 ounce and 1.7 ounce sizes) and MPG testers, or Montale 1.7 ounce bottles for around $50 but it's something of a rarity and would require much hunting.
L’Occitane Eau des Baux is another which can be had for around $50 if discounted, and there isn't a single Caron Masculine which is over $50 except for Yuzu Man or the larger volumes of Pour un Homme.
Now I'm just going to throw names at you: Zino by Davidoff, Cool Water Deep, Dunhill 51.3, Roger & Gallet Pour Homme, Body Kouros, Worth Pour Homme (reformulation) Khiel's Original Musk, Azzaro Acteur, Mandarina Duck Pure Black, Versace The Dreamer, and many more.
Also if you're prepared to buy decants then you can have just about anything you want.
Many good suggestions already...
You might also want to give a chance to some of the CDG's...Vettiveru, Anbar and Sherbet Cinnamon would be my picks at these prices...

Many good fragrances can be had for 35 pounds or less. If you would consider decants the options are almost infinite.
Cerutti 1881 is one I've got for very little in the past.
