    Talking Year review

    So as 2006 draws to a close

    mine is SMW.

    Terre d'Hermes. It is the only thing that I have that I get a compliment every single time I wear it. Fragrance of the year as far as I'm concerned.

    Kyoto, Passage d'Enfer, and the two that almost inevitably get commented upon, Chergui and L'Homme Sage

    Givenchy Blue Label takes the crown this year. Although I haven't worn it for months (hot weather), it still generated more positive response than the rest of my wardrobe combined.

    Gaultier2, Bvlgari Black, Lolita Lempicka au masculin, & TM Cologne.

    These are the ones that I haven't just gotten the "you smell good" compliments, but have had several unusually great compliments. Like the time a toast was proposed @ a bar regarding how great I smelled (I was wearing LLAM) and the time a woman from work got distracted & started following me around so she could smell my TM Cologne.

    Thumbs up Re: Year review

    Definitely L'air Du Desert Marocain,

    Almost all the people around me made comments on the first day that I wore this wonderful fragrance.From my secretary to co-workers who rarely comment on what I wear.
    And all of them were compliments.

    If obtaining compliments is the standard by which fragrances are to be judged, mine has been a truly terrible year! :-)

    Agreed. Of all of my "winter rotation" scents listed below in my signature, I've gotten compliments from none of them. In fact, the only fragrance I own that I got compliments on this year was YSL Opium PH.

    I have gotten the most compliments with L'Artisan's Timbuktu. I love it and will be buying a full bottle asap.

    So Fragrance of the Year = the fragrance most likely to get compliments from random co-workers?

    Seems to me the Frangrance of the Year should be the one YOU most like to smell on yourself, not what impresses the waitress at the Waffle House.

    After all, most people have crap for taste.

    this fall/winter so far (besides Creed SMW which is year-round for me and always garners attention) it falls to CDG sequoia (2 compliments, both women). They both expressed an interest in wearing it for themselves though, so the general impression seems to def. be unisex.
