I agree totally.
I posted something way back on this thread along the lines of, 'no matter what fragrance you're wearing, it all boils down to how approachable you are and your persona in respect of receiving compliments on the scent you've got on'.
This whole thread is missing the point in my view. When one receives a 'compliment on their fragrance', this is more a compliment on you as a person, rather than what juice you've decided to spray on.
You could have on the 'best fragrance in the world' and not receive a single compliment if you were more introverted, unapproachable and perceived as a firm non-social type of person.
In retrospect, if an individual is more extroverted, social and approachable, that person is very likely to receive a compliment on their fragrance no matter what they have on - this is a fact and you only have to look at how many 'generic' smelling fragrances (I'm not a snob, I own many of these!) receive tons and tons of 'compliments' from the ladies.
Conclusion; the fragrance does not garner the compliments, but it's the whole package of you as a person which attracts the ladies to compliment on you!
