    Le 3eme Homme by Caron is amazing and not too pricey. Most vintage Caron scents can be found for reasonable prices, if you are patient

    A remarkable Masterpiece Patchouli. To my mind a gem that can occasionally be picked up for the price of a HQ Contemporary.
    Sleeker than Givenchy Gentleman and suaver than VIP.

    I own it and love it. I do prefer vintage Givenchy Gentleman if it’s the “seize only one on the way out of a house fire” scent, but it is fantastic.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    I agree, but it doesn't fit into the OP's category of "obscure vintage fragrances that may be able to be bought on eBay for not much coin" - more's the pity!

    Etienne Aigner’s Sport Fragrance is a fantastic citrus chypre. Better than a lot of the classics for my taste.

    My neck is stretched now, Cevenol, thank you!

    I did some Etienne Aigner sampling several years ago and didn't go for any bottles. SexySmells and a few other Basentoers seem to love it. I did get a mini of the original / No. 1, and get a lot of moss from it, which I like.

    I have never tried the Etienne Aigner Sport you have there. I like the bottle.

    The original Etienne Aigner, later labled N1 is incredibly good, I even prefer it to Givenchy Gentleman for the added leather. I don’t know the others

    I can't bond with it in the same way as Givenchy Gentleman. I have some kind of block with Etienne Aigner, I think.

    As for what this thread is about: the Etienne Aigner Sport does seem rare to me. I had not heard of it.

    Etinne Aigner is one house which i could not come to like.
    No 1, Statement, Private Number -- did not work for me

    For people who like Etienne Aigner, I say check out vintage men's Avon. It's not rare, but they did lots of variations on similar themes, I think, and I think the Avons are good: Oland, Blend 7, Leather, several others.

    Maybe I’ll try that today. I bought a bunch of Aigners, but I haven’t worn most of them yet. Super still eludes me, and I wasn’t wowed enough by my Silver mini to commit to a FB.

    Maybe it’s the boozyness, there’s a cognac note to me.
    I don’t know about Sport now but when I got mine it was very cheap overall

    Just put it on. I’ll post about it later in the Vintage SOTD thread, after I’ve had a little time with it.

    GFF Uomo by Gianfranco Férre (1997)
    I just got that one last week. Very nice, but not essential in my book, and poor projection (even if stellar longevity).
    On the other side, I found GF for Man (1986) stunning. Some performance issues here also, but that may due to the age of my bottle.
