    Default Bang for buck bruisers?

    Name Your bang for buck heavy hitters... Under $50 for at least 3.3oz

    Lalique Encre Noire
    Ferrari Extreme
    Azzaro Visit
    Azzaro Chrome Legend
    Roger & Gallet Open
    Jacques Evard Thallium
    Dior Aqua Fahrenheit
    L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme
    L'Eau d'Issey Bleue PH
    L'Eau d'Issey PH Intense
    Salvatore Ferragamo PH
    Kenzo PH

    Pretty much anything Jacques Bogart, though I've found them not to be my taste. The Silver scent are nice, last forever, but cause extreme fatigue near immediately. I can't smell a one after 30 minutes... Funny enough I smell both on my bedding and in the shower the next morning. One man show and gold are repulsive but absolutely embody the bang for buck idea. The there's Arabian nights and pour homme, both okay, but far too heavy and daunting. They remind me of my initial reaction to Chanel Egoiste.

    Lot of mine got hit above.

    Those that are good and CHEAP:

    Nautica Voyage
    Perry Ellis 360 Red/White
    Maurer & Wirtz Original Tabac
    Zirh Ikon
    Michel Germain Deauville
    Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme
    Davidoff Zino
    Michael Jordan Legend
    Oscar de la Renta Pou Lui
    Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin

    Those that are exceptional VALUE at their price point:

    Lalique Encre Noire
    L'Occitane Eau des Baux
    Lush Breath of God
    YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme
    Thierry Mugler Cologne
    VC&A Pour Homme

    EDIT: EdB is $55/100ml, and Breath of God comes in a max size of 30ml for $44.95, so neither of these actually comply with OP's criteria. I'll leave them in my post for completeness though.

    Discount codes are fine, since their a continuous offer.

    I've seen the 2.5 oz. for under $50 at both places, but the 4.2 ounce is usually at or over $55, even with deep discount coupons.

    Of course, that's being a stickler in accordance to a strict and precise "under $50" price point....

    Mine is 3.3oz, for the encre noire, if that's what we're talking about.
    And it only comes in 1.7 and 3.3 as far as I know

    Yes IMO, I prefer the smell much more than 360 red also.
