I'm gonna have to go with the tried, true and versatile Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin.
24 Gold by Scent Story
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.

Michael Jordan Legend or Lolilta Lempicka Au Masculine
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!
Michael Jordan Legend
Everlast Original 1910. Under $20 and a great bargain. This was created by nose Antoine Lie for Clarins.
Notes are lime, lavender, mandarin orange, mint and grapefruit; middle notes are nutmeg, cypress, cinnamon, tarragon and geranium; base notes are leather, tonka bean, patchouli, musk and guaiac wood.

Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme.
"Le parfum est la musique du corps"
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 every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?
You can get 10ml decant of most niche frags in splits delivered for $30 nowdays so how about Amouage of your liking?

Yardley Citrus and Wood Can be had for £10 here (about $16). If you don't believe me have a look at Odysseusms review!
Paul Smith for men. Under $20.
Formerly known as Inselaffe
I know alot of people don't like it but Dunhill Desire smells great on my skin and i always get complements when I wear it and it can be found for under $30 online or at some fragrance stores.

I agree that Pinaud Special Reserve line is an excellent buy for the money. Worth looking into.
Lolita Lempicka au Masculin
Azzaro L'Eau Pour Homme, and of course, the original Azzaro Pour Homme.
Ted Lapidus Altamir
I like Rochas Man i paid $19.99 at TJ Maxx for a 50 ML bottle
Grey Flannel. Not even a fair contest imo.
Elsha 1776 is the best deal EVER. Skip a lunch, add it to the $30, and go for the 8oz'er.
