    I always like to blind buy a few just for fun at the beginning of spring and summer.

    I've heard some nice things about this one:

    Pulled the trigger on Bergamatto Marino. The small decant I had has become popular with my wife- I really can't think of a easier to wear, yet still deeply satisfying, summer scent.

    That's a nice one. For the price, I don't think you can find a much better summer scent. Very underrated/unknown.

    Was flying through the El Paso, TX airport and came across this in a gift shop. I thought the bottle was kind of tacky in a fun kitschy way and the juice itself wasn't half bad, so I picked up a bottle.

    Awesome juice. Didn't quite last like I expected or desired, but, great summer scent for sure. Another worthy bang 4 buck.

    A bunch of decants to play around with. I have owned bottles of both Chanels but it has been awhile.

    Marc Jacobs Bang 1.7 OZ for $19.99 at TJ Maxx. For the enjoyment my wife and I get out of it, it is well worth that price. I kick my self for ever getting rid of it in the first place.

    Great minds think alike...I picked up a bottle of this for $20 at the Colorado Springs TJ Maxx also. Everything else there was crap. :-/

    I guess I can't make fun of Walmart anymore....

    This afternoon I was waking around Walmart where I discovered a 2.5 OZ bottle of Shalimar EDC in the clearance section. I immediately snatched it up but couldn't find a price anywhere. When I went to check out, the box would not scan correctly. The cashier asked me how much it cost, and I told her that it was the only bottle left and it was in the clearance section. I even voluntarily suggested that $40-45 would be a fair price (after doing a quick check on Fragrancenet). She called the manager for a price check, who said he had never seen that fragrance in the store before and said he would sell it to me for $9.99 just to get it out of there!

    The batch code on the box and bottle match, and the actual fragrance smells perfectly. According to Checkcosmetic.net (which I know can be sketchy at best), it's from April 2011. The box and bottle look legit, and for what it's worth, it says "Made in France" on the back next to some Arabic writing.

    Needless to say, I'm one happy camper!
