What next? Aquatic/Oceanic or Woody Spicy?

OK, so I sent the Bentley Momentum Unlimited back for a refund. Too weak on projection and too similar to VPH and MB Cologne, both of which I have and love.

The Fragrance 'war chest' is pretty empty now and with looming house renovations pending this year I can't justify any more higher end fragrance purchases.
I do however have around £25 GBP which is the refund from the Bentley Momentum Unlimited so I can get something cheap and chirpy with that but that's it :cry:

However I am dithering as to what to get and it's especially hard as I know it may be the last fragrance I can buy for a while.
I am torn between two types of fragrance, either an aromatic, fresh/aquatic/oceanic with a persistent sharpness/freshness (not sour though) rather than a sweet and soft dry down (like VPH/MB Intense and yes the Bentley MU) OR....a woody spicy.

For the Aquatic/oceanic/freshy I am considering either Cool Water or a flanker (possibly 'Wave'?) or Eternity Aqua or JV Blu.
I don't want an aquatic that is soft and sweet but more like something where the top notes of freshness persist throughout, only softening/sweetening a little in the dry down. To me JV 'Blu' does this as does perhaps the original CW, not sure about 'Wave' or other flankers. I don't want anything weak, poor projection and with a pathetic longevity. Doesn't have to be a 'beast' as I know that's rare with freshies but just respectable in performance.

For the woody Spicy I am considering taking a chance on the Armaf CDNIM as I love the smell of Aventus but cannot see myself ever being able to justify spending that kind of cash on the real thing whilst staying happily married!
I'm tempted to blind buy it just to see what the fuss is all about but have some reservations as the reviews and opinions on here seem to vary regarding it's performance and more importantly it's actual quality and similarity to Aventus?

So I suppose i'm asking for opinions on a cheap but goody freshy or a cheap and goody woody/spicy.
To help with this here is a list of my current fragrances as I don't want redundancy in my small collection.

Dior 'Sauvage'
Issey Miyake l'eau D'issey
Chanel Pour Monsieur EDT
Versace Pour Homme
Mercedes Benz Cologne
Mercedes Benz for Men
Prada L'Homme
Ferrari Pure Lavender
Bentley Azure
Mont Blanc Legend
Chanel Bleu de Chanel EDT
Body Shop White Musk

That's it for now, opinions appreciated :thumbsup:
