    Of course ! Almost all of my fragrances have gotten multiple compliments(even multiple compliments in the same day) from both men and women when I wear them out somewhere. A big compliment getter for me lately is Allure by Chanel...It's pretty cool being asked what i'm wearing on a daily basis.

    I've had many compliments in the line of "you smell amazing" but the only one I can remember that the complimenter was adamant about knowing what I was wearing was with Lolita Lempicka au masculin.

    As I mentioned in the "Dreamer" thread going on, I usually always get complements from my two favorite girls at the bar. One's a 5'11" blonde model (she was in a few recent issues of Nylon, and some other stuff that she didn't really specify), and her friend is a 5'1" brunette who's probably the cutest girl I've ever met. Usually one loves my fragrance and the other is apathetic, but they both seemed to love Versace's The Dreamer and Michael Kors... a lot. They wouldn't stop smelling me. Good times.

    Last time I remember (not counting my girlfriend) was 2 years ago roughly (by a female mate). I was wearing 212 Men by Carolina Herrera Obviously, I've had some people that clearly noticed but didn't say a thing.

    YES.I was wearing old spice after hours deodorant though. I forgot if i was wearing cologne too..umm.. if I was it was Chrome by Azzaro b/c it was the only one i had at the time. Some girl hugged me (she was so annoying) and she said "mm you smell good! what is it?"

    lol. that's the only compliment i got from a semi-stranger (this happened in PE class and I never even talked to her. she was just one of those flirt/outgoing types.)

    Default Re: Ever have someone say you smell good and ....

    yes all the time
    but when they ask which one or what kind or who made it...
    i say "this new cologne (or scent) i got"
    since saying for example "its the thierry mugler cologne" would be a waste of time especially to the people in my high school...

    Normally I don't get compliments at the office, but my closer friends are always saying I smell good (but I can't count their compliments, they know about my fragrance's passion)

    Once at the office, a girl from a distant department (that I've never talked to), almost broke her neck when I passed by, trying to sniff my Antaeus... That was a huge compliment for me!

    L'Instant Homme EdP--the women were uncontrollably obsessive saying "OMG *sniff*, OMG *sniff*!"

    Kouros Fraiche--woman in the elevator turned around twice looking at me with a glint in her eye and smiling! She spoke volumes with those eyes!

    Cannabis Santal--the girls melted smelling this, they started acting almost "feline"! The guy who sits in the cubicle next to me at work who just bought and was wearing Mugler Cologne was feeling kinda jealous.

    Casual Friday--"OH! Mmmm...what are you wearing?

    Allure Sensuelle Extrait--laughing at this one, testing a dab on me that day, but there are definitely some hidden masculine qualities in this scent. Sorry, but I didn't confess to wearing this when she asked.

    Opium PH EdP--the woman at the register kept exclaiming someone smells nice. I confessed to wearing something, she thought it was the bottle of Gucci PH I was purchasing that day.

    Rochas Man, all the time. Women would ask me what I was wearing, guys would ask me where I got it and how much it cost, that kind of stuff. I've ocassionally gotten inquiries when I was wearing some other colognes, but I don't really remember what I was wearing.

    Last compliment: Terre d'Hermes, from another guy

    Compliment before that: Un Jardin sur le Nil, from a girl (I remember thinking when she complimented me, I didn't smell it anymore on my skin...but I guess she must've)

    YES, last night i was wearing Green Irish Tweed. I went to see my favorite Irish band, Revel's Glen. A girl bought me a drink and asked what cologne i was wearing. It was a good night. Now i need to call her
    And here's a toast from last night

    Here's to the girls that do
    And heres to the girls that don't
    And heres to the girls that say they will
    But then they say they wont
    And here's to the girls that i like best
    And I'm sure you'll think I'm right
    They are the girls that say they don't
    But for you i think i might.

    Loewe pour homme. Back in school there was a girl who used to look for me every morning to "stick" her nose to my neck. Was kind of an addiction to her.

    In the last 6 months I bought:

    Versailles
    Timbuktu
    Dzing
    Coze 2
    New York
    Vetiver by Guerlain
    L'air du Maroc

    Never, ever got a compliment for any of these juices. The last time someone said you smell good was in 1987!
    I remember it very well. It was a girl in a bookstore.
    I was wearing cheap stuff called Francesco Smalto.

    This stuff is good....leaves a big trail of incredible sillage....and its cheap too....i bought one for myself and then just had to give one to a friend on his birthday coz i thought it came really cheap...but then one day when this friend visited me...i realized that Francesco Smalto was just so amazing....

    should buy one for sure now....

    Yep it happened today...went to work...and this HR guy tells me that i smell nice...asks me if i am wearing 'Gucci'....I roll my eyes and said hell no.....its something more unique than that.....Lancetti via Condotti....

    Fantastic stuff...got it on a recommendation here in a thread a few months back.....so so so so 'peachy'.....i smelt like a peach basket....and i dint even know i was smelling of it...infact i thot it had poor longevity...but then this guy just said what he said...and yet again a strong case for 'Olefactory fatigue' is made....

    Gupt, don't buy the 30 ml version of Francesco Smalto (made in the USA). It's a remake with no sillage at all. They did the same with Cerruti pour homme 50 ml; even when you stick your nose in it, its still hard to sniff that typical 80ties smell.

    Of course, and it almost invariably tends to be either Dior Fahrenheit or Fahrenheit Absolute. Great stuff and it really stands out.

    Think that my last 2 times were both Creeds. I was asked by the girl in the newsagents what I was wearing as it smelt nice. I was wearing Silver Mountain Water. A couple of weeks ago a woman told me that I smelt good and I was wearing Creed MI. Maybe I should just stick to Creeds???

    I work in a job where I am really exposed to the general public in a very confined area, as well as a continually rotating group of coworkers, so I am subject to a lot of feedback.

    My # 1 compliment getter among both males and females is:

    Carlos Santana for Men by Carlos Santana

    My top three female compliment getters are (in order):

    Oscar de la Renta pour Lui
    Bowling Green by Geoffrey Beene
    Sung Homme by Alfred Sung


    These are all strong frags, and I apply fairly liberally, but it is about 2 to 3 hours into the drydown before I get to work (and all of them have super-longevity), and after that my shift is usually 13 hours.

    Default Re: Ever have someone say you smell good and ....

    C'mon. Of course. It's a fragrance forum filled with lunatics (like me) with many, many frags.

    The number one I've been asked about is Domenico Caraceni 1913. Had to write it down for a couple of people.

    Yes, unfortunately not that often when I'm wearing something I truly love. Finnish people seem to appreciate simple ones (I hope you don't notice that tigrushka is also a finn and his list consists of all kind of great stuff).

    I can only wish, that people don't ask me when I'm wearing a french fragrance. Oh the pain of trying to pronounce them! It would be better if I knew absolutely nothing about french, so I wouldn't have to try.
