    Default Best positive-response scent?

    Hi, I am new here. I posted a similar question in the women's forum, but here goes:

    Which scent has, in your experience, elicited the best positive response from females. And yes I mean SEXUAL response, or something close to it. No, I DON'T wanna hear about a scent you wore and your grandma told you you smelled like a blueberry muffin and she wanted to eat you up.[smiley=huh.gif]

    Best scent for positive female response.

    Let's hear some stories guys.

    OK, I take it that none of you really go out at all, you just stay in grandma's basement smelling perfumes you ordered off of eBay.

    My best is Gucci Envy. Women seem to like it. I accidentally dropped it and broke it though, now my bathroom perpetually smells like Envy. Also have Amouage Dia, which I don't wear often, but I love it, female response is N/A as of yet.

    First of all welcome to the forum.

    Well, the thing is that for some uncanny reason a similar topic shows up every month or so. Since it's been like this for a while, it kinda became an insider joke. We are not a tough group, but this kind of subjects became uninteresting after having been exposed to it so many times. This is the real reason for lack of replies.

    I think I received most of my compliments wearing 3rd Man and Yohji Homme, although these are not known as lady killers. Go figure!

    Have had plenty of "your cologne smells really nice" comments, but only one that seemed to have approached the quality of response you're seeking. About the best response I can remember that might have been a little beyond the "your cologne smells really nice" comment was a comment I received many years ago from a woman who liked the Jovan Musk (I think that's the name of the cologne) I had just sampled at a drug store. What I remember about her response was the intense eye contact she made along with the comment. I remember returning to the display to find out what ingredients were in the bottle. I bought a bottle of the stuff but found that I really did not like it, though I received more "your cologne smells really nice" comments about that cologne than any other I have ever worn.

    What lesson did I learn from that bottle of Jovan Musk? I must wear a cologne that I like, regardless of how much someone else might like it.

    No! What you have to do is bring the girl back to your grandma's basement and let her smell everything you have until she finds the one that makes her get naked immediately. Then you put that one on and you're good to go

    I subscribe to the idea that the fragrance should suit the man, not the job. So I wear whatever I want, and if Grandma, the rats, the elevator ladies, or the bimbettes like it or not really doesn't matter. The rare soul who is attracted to me usually doesn't care what I wear for the most part. Also, funny thing, but different women have different tastes--a fact that makes them remarkably similar to men! One would guess that Acqua di Gio must be the most effective, or else why would so many women be buying it for their men? I am intrigued about that blueberry muffin fragrance now though...

    It doesn't work that way... It'll get oxidized, and by then, it'll be a turn-OFF. And even if you manage to keep it fresh in a bottle, you're going to have to do some REALLY HEAVY WORKOUT [smiley=grin.gif]

    Actually the average adults sweats well over 3.4 fluid oz per day even without any special exercise; it just evaporates quickly.

    Since I've not responded to one of these threads yet, I'll play along.

    Creed - GIT
    Guelain - Vetiver
    Amouage - Dia

    I also play around with pheromones (NPA, Perception, Alpha A314) and I get more compliments while wearing them. I also get many "DIHL" looks.

    I do not get positive responses from anyone. I have a mohawk, one eye, a peg leg and wear the same shirt since I was 21 with open armpits. Additionally, I have had my cranium pierced; you just gotta try it.

    Seriously though, I've received positive responses on:
    Cuiron
    Body Kouros
    Gendarme V

    I find that Luca Turin addressed your question best:

    A hack from Men’s Health, a magazine notable for the pectorals on its cover, wrote to me asking “How can a man maximize the influence of his cologne choices to attract the women he's really interested in ?” Efficient mating strategies are good in principle, but this one is doomed. Waste time wondering which “cologne” pulls better, and your genes will spread only by lucky accident. A perfume should be right for the man, not for the job. ""

    Sometimes just FEELING sexy is just as good as a positive response to your fragrance. I feel particularly sexy when wearing Dolce & Gabanna PH & Azzaro Chrome. And...true to it's name...Clinique Happy always makes me smile. Which reminds me...one time I was walking around the mall with my brother. We were bummin' around the fragrance counter @ Dillards & I saw a tester of Happy & I was like "OMG I love this!" & I sprayed his chest a couple times. He got really annoyed because he HATES cologne (I think he was adopted, lol). Anyways, later we ran into a high school friend of ours. When she gave my brother a hug she went crazy telling him how good he smelled.

    I've gotten compliments from ladies with most of the scents I own. Getting them to be keenly interested takes more than a good smell.....believe me! Then again, smelling pleasant is certainly a good way to get the interest rolling! However, I must agree with Docluv and Beausillage: You gotta wear what YOU like!!

    Ahh, cant believe i'm posting under this topic. Alrighty. The honest truth. I can honestly say that within the past few years, my most complimented fragrance is..............a few people have already mentioned it..................yes it is Dolce&Gabbana Pour Homme. It is however a very controversial fragrance, half of the people dont like it because they say it doesnt mix well with their body chemistry, i guess i dont have this problem since everytime i wear this stuff, women of all ages ask me about it. The girls at school all said it smells sexy, i think it smells sexy too, for one time i actually agree with the masses. But the problem with this cologne is that guys put on way too much, i've noticed within the years just how potent this cologne really is, it has a super strong statement, and it has such an unbelievable sillage, once i wore just one spray of this, and people have noticed it a few feet away. If this cologne is worn with 1-2 sprays, and with close encounters, it really is an amazingly attractive stuff. Remember 2 sprays max!!! You must follow this rule! This applies to most fragrances, chances are somebody would compliment you on a good cologne if you use it sparingly.

    Back when it was new I used to get LOTs of comments when I wore Lagerfeld. Something I won't go near now. I've found that Vetiver by Guerlain gets the most recognized though. And favorably so that isnt bad. If they recognize it favorably and start talking about it with you... you are on your way!

    (By the way, as a newbie here myself I've been trying to go to various listings in the faq...this topic included...and they don't seem to work. So I hope you longer members don't mind the occasional overused question now and then.)

    Caron Third Man
    Voleur de Roses
    Piper Nigrum
    Heritage
    Knize Ten
    Egoiste
    Fumerie Turque

    Others may occasionally garner smiles and inquiries but the above ALWAYS get serious interest. Always.
