Molton Brown is wonderful to have once in a while but it's not something I can afford to use all the time.
I'm on a quest to find a shower gel that smells just as sophisticated and lathers just as well from a small amount, but is roughly half the price at around £8-12
I have a tabac shower gel, its one of my favourite smells but it's rubbish at lathering, even though it's roughly a quarter of the price of MB, it would take twice as long for me to finish a bottle of MB.
Neals Yard is an example of something that is what I see as an equivalent, but its £7 per 100ml and MB is around £22 for 300ml...
Please do share your finds! : )

I'm not sure if they have a men's range but I've always liked the Sanctuary Shower Gels (I think they are a Boots-own brand) - was impressed by the lather and lingering scent whenever I've used it, it's definitely a bit more luxurious than bog standard shower gels.
I'll throw a few unisex wild cards at you - old classics like Badedas Shower Gel (though I'm not sure it lathers as richly as you'd like - it does have a nuclear scent that lingers - it's very pine green and woodsy).
There's also all manner of Fenjal "Classic" toiletries (lots more than there used to be! like talcum, lotions, deodorant, etc) - I can recommend their bath oil, I'd imagine their shower gel (I see Shower Creme and Body Wash as options, assume the Creme would be more what you're looking for) would be just as lovely.
Weirdly, Pecksniffs was on poundshop dot com at one point (HUKDers called the brand all sorts of "comedy" names). (edited)
