    +1, I paid more than twice that per ml for a script lettered 75ml, and it was the best price around after a few weeks of watching listings on & off. Have also never seen RG for $25, though it was often posted about being at Wal-Mart for that price. A fragrance store situated a decent drive from here has 4.2 bottles for exactly twice that.

    I bought Declaration d'un Soir recently for $38 new in box for the 100ML. I thought that was a pretty sweet deal.

    Agree with Avant Garde! Also love Diesel Plus-Plus at $15 and think Amen TOF for less than $50 for a tester bottle is a great deal as well. And as mentioned Paris Hilton Just For Me, Kenneth Cole Black, MJ Legend and Cuba gold/prestige/wild heart all very good for ridiculously cheap prices!

    I always have to mention Old Spice. when I bought some a couple of years ago it was about $8. It is a yummy floral with some clary sage and some kind of fruit, but not the annoying bubblegum kind. Anyway, for $8-9 how can you go wrong?

    Easily 24 Gold.

    In addition, Bijan Nude for Men. It's like pure ivory soap and it keeps you smelling like you just got out of the shower, all day long. You can get a 75ml for $15 or less. The only problem is the bottle design. All the Bijan bottle designs for men are odd. The bottle looks like facsimile giant woman's ring.

    If the folks at Bijan read this, I have to ask: WTF? What genius came up with a design like that for a men's fragrance? I like wearing it but I wouldn't want to display the bottle. You might be able to increase your sales if you came up with a better looking bottle for the guys.

    I suspect he was just bragging about deals he got below market value. These are NOT current market prices and are even below the going rate when they were more affordable too.

    You should like it. It's fresh and delightful. Nothing original but that's not a bad thing because all that counts is that it's cheap and it smells great! For $15 for a 3.3 oz. bottle this is a huge bang for the buck.

    The title is "insanely underpriced gems," not fairly good deals !

    This can change quickly, and is mostly the case on ebay. At local discounter stores, you'll sometimes get a good deal, but for example if you already have some Tobacco Vanille or Pure Havane (or even Michael for Men by Kors), as many BNers do, are you really going to get excited about Avant Garde for $22?

    I think 50 ml of Devotion for men on ebay right now for about $14 total is great, if you like Envy for Men type scents, but otherwise what i'm mostly seeing here are what I'd call "good deals," at best.

    Halston Man Amber. Though harder to find now, a couple years ago it was widely available for 25-35 dollars online, which is an absolute steal.
    Horizon, by Guy Laroche. While I don't think you can get it for literally $1 anymore, it's still a great little scent that is very affordable.

    Revert Eco, $10 at rue21 stores. Long-lasting sweet citrus-wood smoothie that really is a gem at its price (supposedly made of natural fragrance oils).

    ^ Congrats, but this thread isn't about hard to land fantastic scores; it's about gem fragrances that are low priced that anyone reading this can go out and buy.

    Yes, things that can be had pretty much any day at any Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Gordman's etc or in any local drug store or department store for the most part - OR low price niche gems that are readily available (Sometimes they are regional)

    Purchased it from a local store near where I work; owner had dozen of it on sale, along with other bottles. I purchased one as a gift for a relative.

    Sounds like I made someone jealous of my purchase (3 months ago). I was always under the impression that the price of Zino (script lettering) was just around $30 (the store's regular price), which is still cheaper than the ones most people see. Hence, my original post.

    Ah, the excitement of the sweet eBay deal! It sounds like this thread was initially about everyday bargains, but it's hard not to share a good score now and again! Perhaps the best thing would be to keep this one more about the everyday deals so that we can all track them down, though. With that said, congrats on the eBay find!

    For me, some of the best deals can be had at Lush. Not only are their scents super creative and unique, they're made with top-shelf materials that would make even the most pricey niche brand blush. Most of them can be had for between $15 and $45, too. One of them (BoG) competes with some of the most pricey scents I own.

    Well, I can relate. I picked up an older 75ml bottle for $15 shipped off "that auction site" because it was listed under "collectibles" instead of "health & beauty"--no bidding competition. But in monitoring auctions these days I've seen a lot of 125ml bottles of the new stuff sell between $23~$37.

    Where in NJ is this store? I'm curious to know if I'm in range.

    Coty Wild Woods is about $10.

    Madini Oils Musk Pierre and Ambargris are $15 each.

    Christian Lacroix Tumulte pour Homme used to be available at Ross for $15. I think it's probably about $35 now, but it's still not bad at all, if you like cedar.

    Wow, if you can get it for $35 - GET ME SOME - I'll gladly pay for your trouble and shipping costs!! It hasn't sold for this much in years. It goes for about $140 for a 3.4oz bottle on eBay these days. Even the small 1oz bottles go for about $60... I have one 50ml bottle and one small 10ml(?) mini, it is indeed a great little cedar/incense gem. Love this one.

    Idk about triple for Dreamer I'm selling mine for $20 pretty much full. Just not my type of juice, a little too synthetic for my taste. At first I liked it but then it started getting to me and felt like it smelled a little outdated for these modern timesand my wardrobe. Definetly gets some love on here though.
