    I don't support this perfume company but a fella at the Gym put this juice on him , and with all due respects I asked him what was that and he showed me the bottle of playboy scent , looked like a deodorant but the smelled was similar to 24Gold and not cheap smelling not for me but well made at price range.

    Bogart & Jeanne Arthes IMO (mass market inexpensive)
    Also UdV and Remy LaTour

    Bogart edging all others for me - PH, Bogart, One Man Show, Force Majeure, Witness & Furyo - these (particularly Furyo) beats all others offered on this poll (Lapidus & Azzaro are # 2 & 3 respectively)...

    Lanvin. Azzaro has a few good ones. Caron and Balmain are fairly cheap, I believe.

    I would have to give it to Lapidus. Pour Homme, Altamir and Pour Lui. Great fragrances for the price.

    For me it's Perry Ellis hands down as well. 360 red, white, black, M, Reserve, Night are all very good...this house has much more winners than whiffs. So many great frags at very reasonable price points! I'll also say that Cuba is good stuff for the uber cheapie market...gold, prestige and wild heart are great scents for under $8 for a 3.3

    +1 for Burberry. Around $30 for any 3.4 (Brit, London, Touch) on Fragrancenet and many others
    Well enjoying what you're wearing is crucial, it is of the utmost importance to wear something that others like as well.

    Curse all you Azzaro voters! I only own Azzaro PH, now I'm compelled to dive off into their line and get some more to see what the fuss is about. I'm a sucker for good cheapies

    Here in France Azzaro is as expensive as the other houses.
    I am surprised that Daniel Hechter is not on the poll list, along with Pierre Cardin. These two are much cheaper here in France than the other houses.
    My personal choice would be I Coloniali.

    If Aramis and Burberry are cheapies, they steal my vote! I think Burberry must have strong regional marketing - in my area, there's a boutique, and the prices are quite high even in Perfumania. Love The Beat for Men. And Aramis is just classic goodness.

    How about Al-rehab? Silver, Sultan and Choco musk are great fragrances, let alone they cost between $3 and $6.

    Bogart, with Azzaro a close second
    Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me

    Wanted to vote for Azzaro and thats my real choice, but I decided to give Becham some love. Decent scents.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I am not familiar with every single possibility on the board, but I do know the most mentioned houses. My vote ended up going to Perry Ellis. I think for the price, there are a wide number of scents available that perform very well. Well done PE!

    Perry Ellis. I really would not have said that early last year. In the meantime I came across Perry For Him Black and now most recently M. At that price point, I have yet to find anything better. For me, a classic lesson learned in never judging the juice by the designer name.
