    Sticky: Re: Which scent gets you the most female compliments?

    That is my experience with OV also. I still smell it when I get home from work. I have started using MI as a layering scent it has worked great with OV and Zesty Mandarine.

    I'm still to try Silver, Gold, Arcus, and Ciel and...
