    This has got to be my all-time greatest cheapie purchase. I've gotten rid of some niche fragrances because I find this to be all around more wearable and pleasant for $27 for 100 ml.

    The runner-up has got to be Bulgari Black. Such quality and originality all for under $40.

    eBay... it was $27 shipped. It said "tester" in the discription but it definitely was the retail box, sealed.

    I emailed the company directly and they wanted $50 (which is still a great deal for what you get with this).

    Another for Rive Gauche. I lucked out and got it for just under $30 from Overstock dot com with a 15% off coupon and "new customer" free shipping promotion. For 120 ml NISB, I'd say that's a pretty sweet deal!

    The latest version of Van Cleef & Arples our Homme is very good. Found a bottle of Uomo? Moschino for $19.99 a few months ago. Giorgio for Men is good in its current version but I still prefer the vintage.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?
