    AdG got the most, but that was when I wore just that, before BN
    Rochas Man
    Varvatos
    Mugler Cologne--one girl said I smelled like Mr Bubble ( not necessarily a compliment, but an observation)
    Terre D'Hermes---"this is the way people should smell like"
    Angel---usually some version of "mmmmmm" or "that's nice, but too sweet for a man"

    I've been into the new stuff for a couple of months now and they've all gotten a compliment or three from the fairer sex. ....sex........

    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    Jicky and Musc Ravageur.
    It looks like MR has been getting compliments across gender lines by lots of us here.
    In my case I've been complimented by both straight and gay men for this one
    I'll also add Une Folie de Roses by Parfums de Rosine
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    Based on this year alone, the last two months = Fuel for Life. I only wear it about 2-3 times a week, but EVERY time I get complimented. It's a scent that doesn't project very well, but has good sillage. So lady friends just lean in closer and closer to smell. One girl was actually just smelling me when I had to ask her what she was doing. She just politely commented "You smell tasty!"
    I have: Davidoff Relax, Dior Homme Sport, Boss Selection, Azzaro Visit, and Creed MI (will provide # on bottle for verification) available.

    Looking for the following: DG The One, Himalaya, YSL L'Homme, John Varvatos (not vintage) Canali For Men or Paypal.

    I think that French Lover and Noir Epices and perhaps even Outrageous (and perhaps other Malle fragrances) are all about "application". The first time I tried French Lover, I felt that it was weak and watered down. However, the last few times I wore it, I tried the technique of spraying the fragrance at the same spot about 1/2 hour after the original application. It seems to amplify the sillage and bring out some of the nuances of the fragrance.

    Bottom line... great stuff!

    One comment I'll remember is when I wore Burberry London for the first time from a small decant. Went to the coffee shop next door to where I work. I ordered my coffee, the lady who helped me got my coffee and placed it down and started talking to me. In the middle of the short conversation I leaned forward to get my coffee and my shirt puffed out some London fumes.

    "What are you wearing that smells wonderful!"

    Later that day I found a place nearby that inexpensively sells designer scents and got a bottle.

    Other than that I've never gotten unsolicited comments, good or bad.

    While wearing Creed Original Vetiver the other day my boss said "You smell good. Is that aftershave?" When I told her what it was she said "It smells very natural". That's the best compliment I ever received and she had never even heard of Creed.
