Here are some of those colognes to try that are inexpensive and don’t stink.

Yacht Man – Red by Myrugia 

Yacht Man Red by Myrurgia Eau De Toilette Spray for Men, 3.40 Ounce
  • Designed for men
  • For casual use
  • This product is made of high quality material
  • Fragrance introduced by Myrurgia

Yacht Man – Red is a men’s cologne that is best worn during the summer with it’s sweet woody scent. The only complaint is wearing this cologne on a hot day because it has such a short lifespan. You will most likely have to reapply the cologne, but given the low price per bottle, by not try it?

We also found that the cap was difficult to remove. Given the light scent and the budget friendly price, we feel this is still something worth trying.

Thallium by Jacques Evard (2002) – 87 HQ –

Coming in at #2 is one of top 50 rated Eau De Toilette scents in the world and you can purchase it on Amazon for a budget price. A great cologne to wear in the spring and in fall because of it’s sweet scent.

The fresh light fragrance of this eau de toilette belies its complex makeup. At first you catch the airy bergamot and pineapple fragrance making you think of fruity colognes. Then the middle fragrances of lavender, jasmine and apple notes come into play. The whole thing is anchored by amber, patchouli, woody cedar and musk to round out this fresh woody scent for men.

And if all that didn’t convince you the is a great cheap perfume, the fact that men seem to receive outstanding results when wearing this fresh scent around ladies.

Summary of Scents described in this article:

Sandalwood – Has a floral scent and a sweet woody scent, very common in many iconic colognes

Bergamot (Citrus) – This word typically indicates orange, lime, bergamot fruit, or lemon scents

Patchouli – Similar to the smell of musk but with a sweet fragrance, there is a hint of wet soil smell to it.

Musk – Indicates a woodsy and earthy smell

Spicy – Think of cinnamon, ginger, black pepper when you see the word spicy.

Lavender – Smells just like a lavender bloom. In our opinion, a little goes a long way with this scent for a men’s perfume

Fruity – Think of berries, apples, and pears when you hear something described as fruity.
