 “Great cologne! I have not worn much cologne in years but got the Sawtooth deodorant and wanted to give it a try. They are great together and match well so far with BA Leaf and Leather and Lump of Coal. Not overpowering and holds on for a long time. This a year-round cologne. It has gotten noticed and the wife like it a lot.”  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Yeah, I don’t think “CHEAP” when referring to cologne is appropriate. It makes it sound like low quality since it’s common to say “cheap perfume or cheap cologne” to describe something undesirable.
