    Agreed lol. Even if some advanced science proved to me that wearing fragrances has no effect whatsoever except as a placebo to make me feel more confident, that'd still be awesome and fine by me.

    I find the mood effect can be quite strong. Some scents are, for me, "joy in a bottle." And the effects of different scents can be very different, at least on me.

    I've never heard of any scientific research into the effects, though I imagine there must be some. There were several popular novels in the 1980s that dealt with arcane aspects of perfumery but I don't remember they discussed this earlier. Even the perfume company advertising seems to draw only and rather monotonously on the power of scents to attract the opposite sex.

    I gave myself a pretty good compliment wearing Spicebomb tonight. I can imagine many more will share my sentiments

    Armani Code - gets more male compliments than female compliments in my experience
    Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin - this has got the most by a long way (in number of days worn to compliment ratio)

    Aventus is the only one that I never got tired, bored and sick to use after many times. I never used the same fragrance for more than 6 months, except for aventus. Don't know why but its that good..... For me.

    Cool Re: Which scent gets you the most female compliments?

    Accidentally or rather not, my most preferred fragrances that provide me a great and 'selfish' pleasure to wear them (like Cacharel Nemo, Azzaro Visit, Davidoff Zino, Gucci PH I, VC&A Zanzibar...and recently Escada Magnetism, Terre d'Hermes, Aigner Black PH, Dirty English...etc, etc) got me in time the most compliments from the fair.
    It has to do at least with self-trusting or the confidence 'aura' you somehow 'project' around you when you just feel good (in your own skin).
    Of course, this state of mind is depending on a lot of others factors, but basically when you feel good/confident you gather around yourself positive energies that somehow drawn people towards you. Hope it doesn't sound too complicated cause it's not.
    "I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day"...I don't want to miss that...

    It would be interesting to do another string on fragrances women hate. From what I hear, men like a lot of fragrances that their wives or girlfriends just can't stand. These seem to be strong, masculine, aggressive scents and "men's clubs" scents for the most part. I've seen comments like "My girlfriend said she would leave me if I wear this scent again so I have to wear it when she's not around."

    Younger women, in particular, seem to like more feminine, inoffensive scents on men.

    I dont wear fragrances for others I wear them for myself. Use them for an extension of your personality that day. Who cares what other people think.

    The subjectivity of this topic is a little ridiculous as all people have different tastes. A person (and in this thread a Female) have so many different background factors that can affect such a subjective topic of what is an appealing scent. I find it funny too that people point out that an "attractive" female said something. Does an un-attractive girl not matter? Does an attractive girl have a different olfactory center than a non attractive girl.

    You can even make safe assumptions that the best compliment getter is what's being pushed up peoples noses and due to advertising are told what is appealing. The huge push from SA's behind counters or advertisements with half naked people. Its a fragrance, not a swimsuit advert. Having a half naked dude tells me nothing about a fragrance, why not just have pictures of its notes?!?

But you DO smell nice."
    I think that is a very astute observation. I think it's funny when people criticize a scent because they don't get verbal feedback directly on it. I always think to myself: that's probably the only decent fragrance you've ever worn.

    I do care somewhat what other people think. After all, a scent you don't like can be very annoying and difficult to get away from in many situations (doctor's waiting room, slow elevator ride, bus, classroom, office meeting). I tend to wear the riskier ones when I am not going to be around strangers for a protracted period of time.

    I still think there is a certain form to these things. For example, I would say in public a man's scent should never project more than four or five feet, i.e., to your dinner companion but not so far as the next table. It's just common courtesy, like not talking too loud, smoking, or leaving your cell phone on.

    Similarly, it seems mildly impolite to comment on someone's scent more than once. Multiple times seems rude and boorish, like something out of Seinfeld.

    I just remembered the sheer amount of compliments I used to get with Paco Rabanne Black XS, an absolute ton of them. Think it may be time to start using it again.

    Also, the new Black XS L'exces is alright too. Smells just like the original but with a good dose of fresh pineapple on top. Bottle is quite nice too.

    Gucci Nobile gets a very positive reaction from women. Always has. Too bad I have to use it sparingly these days as I have only a small number of sealed bottles left.

    So a few years ago when I decided to throw out my cousin's nasty Polo cologne, I took him shopping for a replacement and we agreed on Azzaro's Chrome. That very month, he had gotten at least 4 compliments from girls at various parties or places he'd gone and he hasn't stopped thanking me yet. Personally, I'm over Chrome and much more into his YSL L'Homme.

    That said, one that turned my head was a Dunhill cologne...whose name I can't remember. But when I got it for someone else, it just didn't smell the same as it had on the original guy.
