    Aramis fragrances can be found for 20 euros per 100 ml. It's ridiculously cheap. Havana and Tuscany especially are very good. Very nice reformulations too!

    Caron Pour un Homme is not quite what it used to be, but even the current version is an absolute bargain.

    Idk what exactly is cheap, for 40 USD:
    Narciso Rodriguez for Him or Mitsouko
    For 20: Yatagan
    10: Ciara Revlon

    My best spent € 20 is for Mauboussin Private Club Eau De Parfum. Yes, I know that in many places it is offered for a much higher price, but I bought it at the real price.
    Extremely modern and stylish fragrance, similar to Dior Sauvage EDP, Versace Dylan Blue, Spicebomb Extreme, for me the closest is to Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male. But, I must point out, his performance is better than the ones listed above. Powerful projection for 4 hours, and longevity at least 10-12 hours.
    Now I am actively trying to get a second bottle, but obviously this will not happen, for the price at which I bought the first.

    For the price-to-enjoyment ratio, the win for me probably goes to Quorum Silver. I think it was like $12/100ml. A nice damp cedar/cardamom scent. I broke it out the other day and had forgotten how much I like it.

    ... and Bulgari Aqua picked up for $20 in the last day of our local Perfumania closing in 2017. Usually not that cheap...
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    People have different ideas of "cheap" but Encre Noire is a great one that can be had for around $25.

    Too many to mention here, yet seconding especially the ones by the houses of Lalique, Bogart, Aramis, Lapidus, Caron, Azzaro already mentioned and also adding the houses of Roger&Gallet, Maurer&Wirtz, Daniel Hechter, Yarley, l'Erbolario as almost inextinguishable sources for even more bargains worth some (re) testing.

    Forums with this title will always yield a lot of experienced results. The OPs should end up with some choice offerings all over the profile spectrum.

    I’ll throw my hat in for this one from Montblanc. Saccharine, aquatic, freshie fougère . . . if I can call it that.

    Relatively inexpensive. Easy to wear. Late Spring/Summer easy reach, at it were. And for reasons I cannot explain I think I’ve somehow received the most compliments for this one . . . if that is an area you’d also like to check off.

    Most importantly it smells good. A close comparison might be Invictus Aqua version but I personally feel this citrus opening and woody/musk refrain are a little more unique. Whatever, it treads well in an established trend. On paper the pyramid suggests it tried to do something different and not just plug in an updated freshie. Positively masculine, all ages.
