Price is not always an indication of quality which a lot of us discovered through artisan soaps, etc.
How about aftershaves? Do you have some top-notch, to you, aftershaves that each are ten dollars or less?

Personally, I have three that I really like;

1) Florida Water
A fantastic, very classic fragrance. I really, really love it to the point I'd be tempted to get a cologne in that scent (the aftershave scent does fade rather quickly),

2) Aqua Velva Musk
Maybe one of the most masculine scents there are. I feel like building a log cabin every time I splash some on.

3) Coniferous by Stirling
This splash by Stirling Soaps took me some time to get used to..but this non-alcoholic splash is heavy on both Aloe Vera and Witch Hazel and really, really does wonders for my skin. I got the Bay Rum version as well but as a recently outed Bay Rum-hater I must say I will stick with the woodsy Coniferous one.

This is Pinaud territory:
1 & 2: Pinaud Clubman & Bay Rum are tied
3: Pinaud Special Reserve Vanilla

I also like Lilac veg - but this is a very polarizing fragrance (obviously?) After airing - I think it smells nice & flowery; unfortunately my wife thinks it continues to smell like a urinal. Sad

Old Spice Classic. My wife loves it!
The Body Shop Arber aftershave balm. My wife hates this one but its very soothing after a little razor burn.

Of course YMMV, but at 3 for 10 dollars one could score Vi-Jon Spice 7 ounces (Family Dollar), Vi-Jon Classic Splash 9 ounces also at Family Dollar, and Aqua Velva Ice Blue. There would still be change left over.

For one item, its a toss up between Pinaud Lilac Vegetal and the regular clubman....personally.

Applying the 3 for 10 approach to balms...I wait for the Nivea sales at Walgreens.

Less than $10, huh?

RazoRock La Famiglia balms are pretty nice.

That's about it.

A year ago Clubman would have been number 1 with a bullet, but since picking up Skin Bracer I would put it on the top of my "drugstore" AS rankings. Its the hint of vanilla that puts it over the top for me.
