    Default Good cheap everyday winter scent

    I live in New york, its very cold here, so i was looking for something for around 20 dollars for everyday use. I like Nautica voyage but its too fresh for winter.

    Recommendations? and where can i get it? as in what stores?

    What i am looking for is the winter alternative of Nautica Voyage.. I loved it in the summer but in the winter.. not so much

    $20 is a big restriction, if you could go a bit higher, there would be more opportunities.

    Zino Davidoff comes to mind (dark, patchouli). and I wouldn't discount that old workhorse, Tabu, which you can find for $10.

    $20? Maybe get you some stetson or hit target and buy a mini or something like Drakkar Noir. Chaps and Aspen is worth checking out.

    Something from the Perry Ellis range would work. Perry M and 360 red are both great. Both will be easy to find online, but can also be found at discounters like TJ Maxx and Marshalls

    I'd go with Opium by YSL. It can be had for cheap nowadays.

    Samba Skin is FANTASTIC... $15 shipped from fragrancenet, and it's been compared favorably to Thierry Mugler's Pure Havane. Great cold-weather scent and one of my new favorites.

    Also, Cuba Prestige can be had from Ross for $7.99... pretty good clone of A*Men.

    You keep recommending that Hednic and I am so tempted to order it!
    That and Sultane Gold For Men. I saw you recommend that in a few threads and it sounds good.

    I agree! For $20.00 in NYC you'll be lucky if you can get a winter hat.

    +1 for MJ Legend. I got a full 100 ml bottle for $10 at Ross. Great gourmand! My girlfriend laughed when I told her that it was an MJ cologne (yes it is a cologne) because she did not believe me.
    I find myself wearing Rochas Man lately. Great fragrance. Great price (if you like the sweet stuff)

    ebay is your friend on the cheap.
    You could get a bottle of "The One" on ebay for 30
    Burberry London for 20
    Burberry Touch for 25
    Polo Green for 25
    search for used bottles and you could pick from dozens.
    Also you could get approx 20-30 ml of many on ebay by buying sample vials. I just got 36 ml of Gucci PH for 18 bucks via sample pack lot.

    Mont Blanc Individuel has a nice smell and a 2.5 oz is under $30. Get samples of fragrances before committing to a full bottle.

    I second Zirh Ikon. or even better Zirh Cuourderoy.

    Tim McGraw Southern Blend is in that price range and a pretty nice option, though I don't find it particularly comparable to Nautica Voyage.

    I know you said $20 and below and the only one that qualifies from my list is Silver Shadow by Davidoff but with just a little more money you can expand your choices for a good cold weather fragrance:

    Silver Shadow Davidoff (1.7 oz. $19.36 Amazon)
    Nino Cerruti L'essence De Cerruti (1.7 oz. $23 Amazon)
    Narcisco Rodriguez for Him (1.7 oz. $30 Amazon)
    Prada Amber pour Homme Intense (1.7 oz. $32.15 Amazon)
    Gucci pour Homme II (3.4 oz. $58.55 Amazon)
    Euphoria Men Intense (3.4 oz. $33.75 Amazon)
    Fleur du Male (2.5 oz. $27 Amazon or 4.2 oz. $35 Amazon)
    Gaultier 2 (4 oz. $45 Amazon)
    Burberry London (1.7 oz. Beauty Encounter $30)

    I say stick with shipped and sold by Amazon.com and if you get a bad product they'll refund you and Beauty Encounter has been good too without any bad bottles. Fragrancenet I had bad luck with some battles smelling off where there is hardly any scent or merchandise arrived already opened).

    The BEST cheapest cologne on the market is Liz Claiborne's Curve for Men. This is one the most complimented fragrances by chicks out there. This beats out $100 dollar niche cologne's in the compliment department by babes any day of the week.

    Take it from Zack Morris, Always play to get laid. Go for Curve!

    If you can get these for that price, I would:

    Joop Homme, probably not a good blind buy though as I feel it might be quite a polarizing fragrance.
