there are a lot of cheap and decent quality colognes for well under $100, even $75. 99% of CDG is under $85 after tax. Even after going through many high end niche colognes, some of the ones I still reach for can be had for even under $50. YSL and JV make decent stuff, even Tom Ford. I've Lanvin at the mall for $40. Probably my all time favorite though is CKBE. For some reason it reminds me of Blockbuster Music or Tower Records.
