    From your description, the first thing I thought of was Tiffany for Men. It can be bought directly from Tiffany. It is a fresh but powdery masculine scent that is very similar to Pour Monsieur from Chanel, but better. Another in this category that has a slight more herbal base is Monsieur Givenchy - a very fine, lemony, men's cologne chypre with a slight powdery touch. Pure elegance.

    Noir by Tom Ford or it's BETTER predecessor, Habit Rouge by Guerlain (the Eau de Toilette).

    Good calls! Another not quite as powdery perhaps but more fresh talcum vibe with good projection is Prada Infusion d'Homme .

    Default Re: fresh+powdery+good sillage+ very complimented+for men (not unisex)

    Tiffany for Men fits that bill perfectly. Habit Rouge does, too, but I like Tiffany better.
    Current Top Ten:

    1. Creed Millesime Imperial
    2. Serge Lutens Chergui
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Creed Virgin Island Water
    5. Chanel Eau de Cologne
    6. Thierry Mugler Pure Havane
    7. Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme
    8. Bulgari Blu
    9. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    10. YSL Kouros

    Midnight in Paris(but has a burnt rubber smell), CKN2U is like cinnamon rolls and baby powder, and D&G the one gentleman is like a talc with bubble gum.

    I would agree with Tiffany for Men. Also Habit Rouge as well.

    Creed Bois du Portugal may also be worth a look, although not as "fresh"
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Brückner - Aoud 1
    4. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    5. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    6. Dior - Vetiver
    7. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
    8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    9. Amouage - Jubilation XXV
    10. Creed - Royal English Leather

    +1 Touch.

    Check out Bvlgari BLV and BLV Notte too. BLV was one of my most complimented ever, Notte is basically the same but a little less powdery with a light chocolatey note.
    My 3 Signature Scents:

    Rive Gauche Light (2004)
    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)

    Racquets is great stuff. Barbershop for sure. I read that it was discontinued recently though, so if true be sure to snap up what's out there!

    Not the greatest sillage but as far as the rest, Gucci II may fit the bill.

    Default Re: fresh+powdery+good sillage+ very complimented+for men (not unisex)

    +1 for Heritage - Guerlain
    +1 for Habit Rouge - Guerlain
    +1 for Tiffany For Men

    Maybe try Burberry Brit for Men . . . or a cheapie, Versace Baby Blue Jeans.

    I just realized that, for a fresh and powdery scent, Bulgari Blu is my favorite. Tiffany for Men is powdery and good, but I wouldn't consider it "fresh."

    Big +1 for Burberry Touch, which has tremendous sillage.
    I also recommend Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin, Guerlain Homme Intense, and Armani Diamonds for Men.
    All are very good also.
    Fall/Winter Rotation:

    Lancôme Hypnôse
    Lanvin Avant Garde
    Zegna Intenso
    Dior Homme Intense
    Thierry Mugler Taste of Fragrance
    Prada Amber Intense Pour Homme

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    I'm not sure this qualifies as cheap as it's still $90, but it seems beautyencounter has it as part of this gift set:

    http://www.beautyencounter.com/buy/a...26424/244314/1

    I saw it at some mall in San Jose, California about 1 year ago (one of those Perfumania type places). Since you're in UK, I'm guessing the Beatyencounter transaction would be easier. I have ordered from them before and had good transactions.
