    Hello everyone,

    Which fragrance have you received most compliments on ever? And by which gender?

    For me it was Lancome Hypnose.

    Thank you

    Thank you for your reply tdrps! It just fascinates me what people actually get complimented on (as opposed to what they think will get compliments )

    Cristobal is my compliment getter - mainly from women.
    Men seem to like Cinnabar and Allure Sensuelle.

    Cristobol, Burberry Brit (usually from men), L de Lolita Lempicka ( also from men), Cherugi, Fifi Chachnil ( hubby likes this one), POTL Luctor et Emergo, and believe it or not Angel are the ones I get more compliments on when I wear them. I have a friend who asks me what I am wearing everytime I have on Kelly Caleche also, because she says it smells so good, but I only have a decant of it so far.

    My other half rarely comments on my perfume unless I make him sniff and then ask him what he thinks.
    I've had compliments from my colleagues on Gardenia Musk (Ava Luxe), Tabac Blond and Musc Ravageur, but it's rare for strangers to talk to each other in London so I've never had any comments from people I don't know.
    My boyfriend had to move to Manchester after getting a job there and was amazed that complete strangers would be friendly and come up and talk to him - that never happens in London!

    Compliments from male acquaintances on TBS Amorito and Lipstick Rose, not much else I remember. My mother was raving about the perfume I wore today - she loved it and so did my sis and bf. Turned out to be Eau des Merveilles... I'm now thinking it is fbw I don't often get complimented on smell.

    From men - Shalimar has been my biggest "compliment" getter over the years. Lately, (last year or so) Shocking, Burberry Brit, and Juicy Couture (most recent) have all received several lovely compliments esp. the Juicy.

    From woman - Shocking, Juicy Couture (Sat. nite), Montaigne, Brit, and Spiritueuse Double Vanille have garnered a few nods.

    I received the most compliments wearing Lolita Lempicka L and City Glam. Men seem to love both of them and women have said something about L.

    I receive the most compliments with Coco Mademoiselle, Le Baiser du Dragon and Samsara.

    I believe there was another thread about sniffing a perfume you wore on someone else and it reminded me of something that happened to me last year. I usually only wear Samsara at night because I feel it's too much for the office. One of my female employees came in one day and she smelled divine, I asked her what she was wearing and she told me she only wears Samsara. I could not believe it as it did not smell anything like it does on me.

    This may sound pretentious, but it is the truth. I have received compliments on everything I have ever worn, from the most random of people. I have had little children, while I was doing a practicum in a classroom, say "oooohhhh you smell yummy" when I was wearing Jasmin Imperatrice Eugenie. When I was at at student teaching meeting the other day, the director of student teaching came in and said "wow, someone smells wonderful", I was doused in Arpege, so I said thank you. I have always felt; it is not what you wear, it is how you wear it. I adore everything I own, and this makes the difference I believe. I douse myself in scent with abandon; for anyone who has been "perfumed" in one of the french fragrance houses you know what I mean; especially Caron, who will keep spraying head to toe, until you are surrounded by a huge fragrant cloud. So I am always 'well fragranced' and love the feeling, and I guess that makes others very receptive also.

    Most complemented ever - Hypnotic Poison

    Most complemented recently - Blue Amber

    Of course, I'm only remembering the male complements

    I don't get complements from others too often because I really try to wear perfume with a light hand. If someone is saying something further than arm's length away, I feel like I'm wearing too much. I'm kinda squirrely that way....

    me too, sakecat... I've only gotten compliments from my husband, and that's usually when I'm really near him. And sometimes not even then. He's not very attuned to smells sometimes.

    But he has noticed a fragrance he likes nearby with Ambre Narguile, Pink Sugar, and No. 19.

    I can go months or years without getting complimented on fragrances, but in the past couple of months I've gotten multiple complements on Eden by Cacharel (which I got to "fill in" my collection as much as because I liked it). I've also received a compliment wearing Badgley Mischka.
