    Taken from my answer in another “best cheapie thread” from some time ago:

    Azzaro Visit
    Essential by Angel Schelesser
    Emporio Armani He (not very cheap)
    212 Sexy Men
    Paco Rabanne XS
    Aramis 900
    L’Eau Par Kenzo

    If your search right you will see there’s a thousand and some more of these threads.
    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    It sort of depends on what the price point of "cheapie" is...

    For me, all these were around $20 and I like them

    ARAMIS HAVANA
    AVON BLACK SUEDE
    AVON WILD COUNTRY
    OLD SPICE COLOGNE
    DANA CANOE
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    1. Cuba Black
    An aromatic fougere that's got this sweet, musky tobacco vibe in the dry down. This has really grown on me. It smells like a lost 80s scent.
    2. Brut Special Reserve
    An all-time classic men's fragrance. It projects really well too. I could never do without having this in my collection, just for the top notes alone.
    3. Mambo for Men
    This is such a weird fragrance, because it has this faint 80s men's cologne vibe to it, and yet it also smells unisex, and could easily be a very alluring woman's scent as well.
    4. Grey Flannel
    This is like the underdog of classic men's fragrances. The bottle is classic, but I think the presentation makes the scent feel older than it is. A really nice soapy, clean, green scent to my nose.

    I couldn't make it to a full top 5. But these are all under $15 and although not all of them are my all-time favorites, I really enjoy wearing them.
