Compliments? Would never expect any from either.
Quality? That's taste. Cuir Ottoman is more my taste, so I would say it is higher quality.
Projection / longevity? Probably slight advantage to Knize 10 for that.
really? do women hate leather scents ? I thought maybe some would garner compliments....maybe not...
Well, from just my experience, women don't necessarily hate leather, but the ones I know generally don't like "masculine" leathers - too skanky and dirty. The women I have known (I know big world, lots of women all with their own opinions, etc) tend to like when men smell fresh and clean - not unwashed, dirty, challenging, etc... So, if you are looking for my advise on a leather that females will like on a man, you may actually want to try leathers that are marketed for women. Cuir Beluga, Cuir de Russe, etc. These have a nice leather scent, and are still clean and refined enough to be liked by women. Just my opinion.

You know who probably wears Knize 10?
In case you need a visual aid as to what K10 smells like...
