    I agree with Aramis

    If Cuir de Lancome's current prices are "budget," then what is not a budget scent, other than Amouage, Clive Christian, Xerjoff, and perhaps one or two others?

    Another vote for Aramis. I picked up a 60ml bottle for about 15 dollars not too long ago, so you can occasionally find it for quite cheap.

    I had heard about Knize Ten on Basenotes since 2009.
    I avoided it, thinking I don't like leather cologne, based on
    pre-basenotes bias on leather based on English Leather.

    Fast Forward to now...Got sample from Lucky Scent, ordered bottle next day.
    Love it or Hate it...when you love it...you'll then consider Cuir de Russie (EXPENSIVE)

    I did hear that Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve is damn good leather for VERY inexpensive.

    When the time comes,
    Knize Ten will spank you with it's Austrian Leather
    ...and you will like it.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    I've seen it available on eBay for about £30 about a year or so ago. I checked after starting the thread and couldn't find it. I'm not aware of a more recent price increase.

    While seconding Caractere, Trumper Spanish Leather, Z14, Trussardi Uomo and English Leather, I'd also like to add Tabac Original and Avon Black Suede Touch (the latter including not just suede notes, but also leathery and gourmand ones).

    Budget leathers are hard to find. Perhaps if you appreciate leathers from the late 60s ( Aramis), 70s ( drawng a blank !) and 80s ( Ferre Man, Caractere, Trussardi Uomo, Tenere, Or Black....etc) they are alot easier to come by. But finding a nice Spanish leather is really hard to come by at a cheap price ( under $50).

    Most contemporary leathers are close to $100 ( if not more).

    I also find the current Nicole Miller for Men to be lackluster in that it feels thin and not well lasting.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.
