    Question Best fall fragrance for under 75-80 dollars?

    I've been looking at frags like One Million/Prive, and I actually smelled them, I remember liking them - but if it wasn't for a salesperson informing me of my now personal favorite fragrance, Sauvage - I would have bought One Million.

    So now with it being October, I need some ideas/suggestions on what fragrances to check out for a 75-80 USD budget.

    To give you gents/ladies some ideas, I loved Halloween Man Shot, Axe Dark Temptation, and that's all I can really think of as of right now.

    Perhaps Burberry London.

    Also - unsure if you can help but I was planning on travelling to the mall soon, and would you recommend either Dillard's or Belk for the fragrance selection?

    I'm actually 21 as of this post. I've liked Dark Temptation, but Axe just has this...chemicalness to it that I cannot stand, which is why I was hoping to find some alternatives that smelled similar and without that Axe like weirdness.

    Sorry, but these stores don't exist where I live, so I'll defer to others who can better help you with that.

    Really, you could consider some simple shopping on the Internet. Fragrancenet.com and Ebay.com offer many at discounts. Some nice fall frags can be found, especially 50ml/1.7 is bottles. If you like them, you could purchase larger bottles: Some good fall frags:

    Certainly Burberry London mentioned,
    Boss Bottled Intense is an apple pie cinnamon scent very smooth,
    Valentino Uomo Intense, spicy leather beautiful
    Spicebomb, and Spicebomb Intense, the original a fresher take.

    Those have some sweet vibe of you liked 1 Million which is all sugar

    Like wood? A beautiful cedar is very attractive, and Quorum Silver is 15$ to 25$ available on EBay and Amazon.
    Last try, a sweet tea scent, smooth and attractive is Gucci Pour Homme II, readily available, less than $50.

    Enjoy!

    With that budget I'd go to Alexandria Fragrances and get 30ml of Wasted Moment (clone of Kilian Apple Brandy), and 30ml of King Tut (Clone of Roja Dove Creation-E).

    You get both for $80. They're the cheapest fragrances in my collection but are nonstop compliment getters.
    Don't stank.

    +1 L'Occitaine Eau des Baux
    +1 Bentley for Men Intense
    +1 Burberry London
    +1 for Thierry Mugler...but I prefer Pure Tonka.

    You could also try Arpege Pour Homme by Lanvin, Versace The Dreamer, and Tom Ford Noir Extreme, all within your price range.

    Or even Avant Garde, also by Lanvin and significantly below budget while offering way above average performance of the specific required notes
