My personal women & frag experiences compiled over the last few years.
General rules of thumb:
1) What "you" think smells great is usually not the same thing as what a woman think smells great. Do you think Kouros stinks? So do I, but there are a lot of women who like this smell for some reason so if that is your aim, try to learn to like it.
2) "You smell nice" and "I want you" are two different things.
3) There is an art to applying a frag, and each frag is different. The same frag applied differently can have different results.
4) Read #3 again.
Your results may vary, but...
"Frags for when you want to 'close the deal'" (which generally means not wearing it to work)
Chanel Anteus - In the right hands, one of the best! This is not an "oh, you smell nice" frag, it's one that will make a lot of women want to hug you, especially if they've had a drink or two. Not for boys. It's very potent so use with caution or it may backfire. Seems to have the best effect on gals in their early 30's and up.
Ungaro III - This is kind of a sleeper. Forget that nonsense about it being "dark" or "goth", this one does the job! Once again, use with care.
Versace "The Dreamer". Takes about an hour to kick in, then real good. Not as good as the two above though. Attractive to women, not girls.
YSL M7 & M7 Fresh - Very good, but once again, use with care.
"Frags that get me compliments consistently"
YSL Body Korous - Good for the under 30 crowd.
Victor & Rolf "Antidote" - Go figure! (Doesn't last though)
Lanvin "Arpege PH" - ("sexy" was the last comment I got on this one, another sleeper I think. Lasts forever.)
Chanel Homme "Sport" - Young gals like this one, end of story.
"Frags that get compliments every now and then"
Chanel Platinum Egoist
L'eau D'Issey PH
"Frags which I still haven't come to complete conclusions about."
YSL Kouros (patience, patience. I do think women like it though. I'm leaning towards putting this up at the top. Not for amateurs, that's for sure.)
Kiehl's Original Musk (Ditto above)
"Frags I think women don't really think care that much about but which I will wear anyway because 'I' like them."
Just about any Guerlain frag (Last female comment on Habit Rouge - "baby powder")
YSL Rive Gauche (worth the money!)
Guerlain Vetiver (worth the money!)
Lalique Encre Noire (worth the money!)
Creed GIT (not worth the money!)
