    Ken, are talking about the current Ungaro III formula? I was wondering if this was worth buying.

    OK... Limiting it to 'inexplicably cheap yet good' and only 5 (which is not easy!)

    #1 Nicole Miller for Men - Keep seeing it at Marshalls, etc. for $10. Really very good.

    #2 Bijan for Men - I just love this one. Some say it smells like cardamom. It's unique and always cheap.

    #3 Azzaro Visit - If you like cedar / incense, there aren't many like it at this price.

    #4 Z-14 - Andrew was right about this one. Always available at a low price, always good.

    #5 Quorum - There's only one like it, and it's always cheap.

    I've owned many bottles of Ungaro III in my life, few days ago i've purchased a made in Italy new formula (is not my first new formula bottle for sure) and i have to say that the dry down is still great on my skin, probably some differences are lingering in the top in comparison with the old bottles i used to wear long time ago but this fragrance is still a solid choice (if you aim to project a classic, mysterious and manly aura) in my humble opinion.

    Sounds like I have to appropriate some funds towards this venture, now that I have opened Pandora's box

    Here is the list of those that have piqued my interest so far (and my $300 budget):

    Chopard Noble Cedar
    Adolfo Dominguez Vetiver Hombre
    Yardley Citrus and Wood
    Franck Olivier Sunrise
    Brooks Brothers Black Fleece (all)
    Montana D'Homme (Red)
    Ted Lapidus (all) [I love everything from this house so far]

    I eventually want to buy everything on here that I have not tried. I am just so tired of new launches that *SUCK* (the new Burberry Brit flanker comes to mind).

    Thanks for the contribution!

    I've got to agree with:

    Quorum
    OdlR Pour Lui
    Giorgio for Men


    but I also want to add:

    Caron Third Man - is it $20 a bottle? No but it is still so inexpensive for the magic you get in that bottle.
    Comme des Garcons Vettiveru - you're just not going to find a vetiver fragrance of the same style and quality without paying at least three times what this one costs.

    Of the 4, I highly recommend Chevignon for men. Nothing cheap come close and it beat many of my expensive scent.

    It has the similar torch of dior homme intense and chanel allure homme. Test it yourself

    Exactly! How Cheap?

    Under $20.
    Old Spice Original - by Shulton
    Tabac Original
    4711 - A bargin if you like TF Portifino Neroli

    Talking over $25 but under $50 there a lot of them to be had today on discount sites.

    Realy cheap but good fragrances:
    1) Animale - Animale <---- Something like A*Men
    2) Franck Olivier - Black Touch <---- Something like Terre d'Hermes.
    3) INCC Group - Christopher Columbus 1492 <---- Something like Kenzo Homme.
    4) Coty - Aspen <---- Something between GIT and Cool Water
    5) Zirh - Ikon <---- Nice fragrance with alot of Incense

    In no particular order:
    1) Tommy Bahama For Men - this hasn't been mentioned yet but really is a nice scent, similar (not identical) to Gucci PH 1.
    2) Acqua Classica Borsari - another unmentioned one, a scent similar to AdP but frankly I find more wearable because it's not as flowery. Perfect for summer.
    3) Bogart PH
    4) Azzaro PH
    5) Rochas Man

    Trying to keep these as much under $30 a bottle as possible. There's also Caron Yatagan and L'Anarchiste. If you are willing to go up as high as $50, that opens up Burberry London, Encre Noire, and the as-yet unmentioned Eau Des Baux.

    Well, I still think Tiffany for Men is a steal. Of course you have to walk into a Tiffany Boutique and see if it's on display, and if not ask if they still carry it and wait while someone fumbles around in a cupboard etc. but my bet is that if this turned up alongside Derby, Chamade Pour Homme, L'Ame d'un Heros and the Arsene Lupin duo as part of the 'wooden framed set' by Guerlain at USD 250 odd, or even if it was inside the Amouage Beloved bottle at USD 350 or whatever it is no-one would blink an eyelid.

    In fact, I reckon a lot of people would be going 'holy s***, what is this stuff?'

    Maxims Pour Homme is also a great one if you find a bottle - I bought a few at about USD 10 a piece.
