Chanel Coromandel +1
Chanel Platinum Egoiste never fails.
Hair stylist doing an about face, "Excuse me what is that cologne your wearing? I want to buy that for my son for Christmas."
The usual suspect ~ BdC.
I'm not real fond of a dominant lemon note in any fragrance so my vote is with CPE.
PS As a side question, it's no judge of quality but is IYO is Platinum much of a compliment getter or just an OK office type scent?
The usual suspects always come through with, "You smell really good Mr. .....!"
Bleu de Chanel
YSL La Nuit (w. more gazing looks than words)
To those that wear this routinely based on the new formulation how many sprays and wear get you the just right amount of Sillage to be tastefully noticed but not be the dreaded cologne guy? ...
Thanks for reviving this old topic but I've definitely answered this question for myself with CPE all day every day!:smiley:
Dear wife who "never" compliments any of my pricier frags complimented me wearing Mont Blanc Individuel twice today!
I couldn't think of anything more synthetic in the fragrance world than JOOP! It's stomach churning burnt plastic and sugar has nothing over on Indivduel's Chocolate raspberry opening and fresh...
CK Eternity gives off a similar floral vibe.
To my nose Mont Blanc Legend is "similar."
Shirt, hair and back of neck twice each.
Yesterday shopping at Lowes, cute cashier, the classic "You smell really good!!" Bleu de Chanel strikes again! :)
PS Yah, yah I know if it had been Aventus I would have gotten a phone number and an...
That's all great but where was the off duty police woman?? ;)
Bleu de Chanel and Chanel Platinum Egoiste
.... two Chanel's BdC & CPE together what third designer scent IYO would it most like resemble?
PS These are my two favorite office wear scents and would like to find a very...
Bleu but even better the classic Platinum Egoiste!
I view this thread as more of a "top percentage people pleaser" than a "fictional panty dropper" list. So with that said hands down my least offensive positive remarked upon scents are....
BdC x VPH 50/50 = A very pleasing subtle smooth citrus aquatic!
To me BdC is the new generation CPE but as Platinum doesn't get much love/respect here on BN's it is no surprise that neither does Bleu. These designers are just too good (much like YSL LaNuitt) and...
Perhaps Bleu de Intense or Extreme that might correct the weak longevity issues? Seriously I wish Chanel would as I do enjoy BdC a lot!
LOL, sorry funny!
PS A request/compliment for A&F Fierce from the wife!
...scents Bleu de Chanel, Platinum Egoiste and Versace Pour Homme what Niche scents can you recommend that I might enjoy?
I noticed on the "most complimented" frags list there are not many Niche scents other than Creed's towards the top. So what say you what are your most complimented Niche frags by the general public?...
C.0. Bigelow Elixr Black = John Varvatos Vintage meets D&G the One for $20.00
CPE & BdC
Rochas Man & Versace Pour Homme
+3 Molecule 01 &
VPH gone after 15 min.
both people pleaser scents...so I'm told.
Bleu de Chanel & Fahrenheit IF the "average Joe" had above average taste!
-Longevity - PE
-Projection - PE
-Sillage - PE
-Compliments - Bleu
VPH & BdC...the ladies definitely don't hate on them! :)
Hmm, I think there's a lot of Chanel reps planted here on BN sent to hype up Bleu sales?? ;) (j/k)
BdC's top notes snaps necks as you walk by! To bad they don't last long enough on my skin.
Any suggestions for a very similar frag to Bleu de Chanel but with slightly better projection/longevity?
Yet another one for BdC from dear wife who "never" compliments my frags. "Mmmm, you smell really goood!" as she leans into my neck after an all day wear. This juice just keeps rackin' them up. :)
Low projection people pleaser is the key for dating. Save the heavier scents for later when things safely heat up.
BleudeChanel or Versace Pour Homme!
I also would 2nd VPH only if it had better performance and agree on BdC as an over all frag! (Ladies seem to agree.)
Straight as the day is long....
Chanel's Platinum Egoiste & Bleu de Chanel also Rochas Man works for the woman in my world.
1. How old are you? 47
2. Male or female? M
3. Are you an introvert (enjoy time alone) or an extrovert (outgoing and social)? Introvert
4. Do you like to be unique, or do you like to fit in? ...
To those who have owned Chanel Egoïste Platinum prior to it's reformulation how does it compare? Was the original better blended or have better projection/longevity than the new version? I love my...
A very simple question if I may? I know these two have been compared to death but very simply of the two which edges out the other with better "projection and longevity" only?
Well said, exactly!
+1 for Platinum Egoiste!
Thanks for the "real time" compliment estimates!
Only speaking from experience, "Bleu de Chanel!"
None of the hype and all of the results!
IMHO FWIW and all other disclaimers "Aventus"!
PS Now on the flip side the Hype that paid off was with DHI!
FWIW other than for your own enjoyment which of these three has brought you the most compliments?
peake - Who has PE and would like to pick up one of the other two.
The old "generic nothing special" Bleu de Chanel comes through again with "Will that be cash or credit and Mmm, you smell really good!" cashier at local store.
PS I predict with the lists next...
Looking for suggestions on a frag similar to VPH but with better longevity and projection? Not interested in Allure Homme Sport or AdG.
Got my first ever compliment from dear wife on a fragrance this AM. "Mmm you smell reeeally good!" Yet another one for Versace Pour Homme!
Chanel Platinum Egoiste is your answer!
smell - Bleu
compliments - Bleu (although Sport does get it's share)
projection - Bleu
longevity - Equal
versatility - Bleu
PS Don't listen to the haters on BdC it's just left over...
Excellent explanation, thank-you.
Now I know as the OP I asked for "your" opinion as fellow gents but I have to ask why (FWIW) La Nuit is rated higher on the "most complimeted" chart and DHI is not ranked as highly if it's the...
I know these VS Polls may get a bit old but I have never seen this particular designer head to head here on basenotes. With that said "of these two" (yes, I know they're are no doubt many better...
Three compliments this AM for Versace Pour Homme the Medusa does it again!
I have this bottle and actually picked it up on "the Bay" on vaca. A very enjoyable spice/musk frag!
"You smell reeeally good today Mister ....!" Bank Teller this AM.
Bleu de Chanel generic or not it works! :)
The old sweet wingman Rochas Man works his magic!
Would you be so kind to share your other top two? Thank-you.
Well, trusting your noses opinions and blind buying today based on the votes. I thank-you and hope the better of the two "helps" project the right image along with all the other "more important"...
I know this has been posed many times before but let me ask this stripped down Q./Poll please? If your one and only priority is as a single guy is to wear the more romantic of the two scents and are...
Bleu De Chanel +1 this afternoon.
...respected "designer" house for men's fragrances?
Thanks in advance
YSL La Nuit de l`Homme
Spending the summers with my fav uncle in the 70's in his corvette and various other sports cars. He always had the latest cologne of the day and to me as a young lad was the "coolest" guy I ever...
