Smelling good is all part of the image of a big man you’re trying to paint for yourself, but how do you do that in this sapa economy Beuxhari has bestowed on us? We talked to Donald, a perfume enthusiast who also helps the man dem find the best perfume deals and mixes. He told us about 10 men’s perfumes for less than 20k that will have you smelling like you married Dangote’s child without having to drink garri till your next salary or allowance.
Editor’s note: These prices may change depending on Emefiele’s latest antics in the Central Bank.
You want to smell like you’re using Dior Sauvage but you don’t want to have to sell your dad’s land to buy it? Armaf Ventana fragrance will have people think you’re using Sauvage, but only for ₦15k.
Club De Nuit Intense EDT 105ml
The fragrance doesn’t come on too strong, and neither does this price, at ₦18,000.
Sources say Franck Olivier was wilding out when he made this perfume. It will set you back about ₦10k. It gives a faint hint of Acqua Di Gio so if you like it, Blue Touch is your guy.

You want to smell like you just rubbed shoulders with a senator? This is the one, and it costs around ₦8k.
Pride of Armaf
Donald says this is one of his favourite perfumes for less than ₦20k. Armaf really isn’t letting us go with this on, for ₦15,000.
