Nah, I'm sure you can wear majority of TF stuff but Black Orchid is an easy one to wear. Try it without a doubt, I think you will like it. Same with Fahrenheit, I'm not a huge fan of EDT, but I love this one. Give it a go.
Nathalie Lorson is a great parfumer imo, she made some great ones including Bentley. I disagree it smells cheap, especially CH Men Prive. I wouldn't say it's synthetic (eventhough it has substances that aren't natural), it's a good blend and smells really good. Btw, whenever you hit a perfumer shop, don't try out too many
it happened too often that I fuck up smells after 4-5 tests, after that I get wrong vibes and a couple of times I hated perfumes just because I was retarded.
Dunno how come you say 80+ for one, rather than 5 bottles, since CH Prive is like 60-70e for a bottle. It's not quite cheap to get five bottles. When it comes to the cheapies I'd mention Lalique and their stuff, especially Encre Noire a l'extreme. Amazing vetiver, quite harsh and masculine. It's a perfect choice for autumn/spring/rainy days. It's incredibly cheap and it smells like a niche one. Not a huge aura but still great. It was another creation by Nathalie Lorson.
Oh and considering you like quality, I think you should check out Amouage if you haven't already. Also check out Nasomatto, they have some great stuff like Pardon, Baraonda and Black Afgano. Quite expensive, though, but many naturals in it and it lasts for a loooong time.
