LEMON (I suppose LEMONIER is out of the question?)
BANKED
4*(100+50+5)+8=628 (3 off)- inspiring solution Geoff!
MOSSIER
CORDON
2*75-8=142
SMITE and just after time POSTIE
(10+4)*25+10+2=362
x - now that's a difficult one. Never heard of the word. I kept thinking this looks like an easy mix, 'must get this'....

Yes, I'm afraid LEMONIER is not valid. And it was a difficult conundrum -- a bit specialised. Apologies to all.
