    I own Prada Intense too - a great winter scent. Yes, strange that it's not on Basenotes.

    No matter what you're wearing, it's you as person combined with the fragrance you are wearing which garners the compliments.

    Example; if you're a serious person who is authoritative and perhaps even slightly unapproachable, it would make no difference if you were wearing the 'best' fragrance in the world, it's highly likely that you wouldn't gain a single compliment

    On the other hand, if you're an outgoing person whom people warm to, you are very likely to receive many compliments, no matter what you have on.

    What matters most above all else is your personal enjoyment of a fragrance and the memories or associations attached to it.
    +1. Personality plays a huge part in garnering positive comments. Sometimes I feel that appearance plays a small part too to be honest.

    Being warm and friendly and approachable...and if the chemistry is good with the female company, guaranteed she will like your fragrance.

    So, how do you explain the same person getting compliments everyone he/she wears a certain fragrance and not when wearing others.. The personality don't change from one day to the next. If it does, we got some other issues to worry about and not whether he our she gets a compliment. Just saying

    Even if you are very sexy, outgoing and all, if you smell like shit you will not have any compliments.

    I agree with Scentdawg and Psycho. I think scents do matter. I do NOT think you're being complimented on your personality when a woman runs up and compliments your cologne. I have sniffed out men I was not even attracted to, wondering what they're wearing.

    Ah, the irony in the whole women approaching men, asking fragrance name, only to purchase it for their boyfriends/husbands...

    Because I'm pretty sure if a man said, "Honey! I want you to smell like this woman I met the other day!" He'd get smacked.

    I see your point, but my view is that if you were more introverted, serious and less approachable, it's likely you wouldn't have received the compliment to begin with. Just my opinion...

    My point was in relation to compliments from people who know you, or work with you.
    Of course we all get stopped/stop others on the street to ask what someone is wearing purely in relation to that specific fragrance and nothing whatsoever to with their persona, since they're a total stranger.
    I believe if you don't take a liking to someone you know, for whatever reason, it's highly unlikely you would compliment their fragrance no matter how much you liked it.

    Well, I don't know of any fragrances that smell like "sh*t", but you know what - even if there were such a fragrance, consider it from another angle.
    If you knew someone who was "sexy, outgoing and all" and you found them attractive, I believe you would think up a compliment of any kind, perhaps even in relation to the "sh*t" fragrance they had on.

    Just a thought...

    I remember receiving a compliment from an African American lady. It was pretty funny. I was in the hood when it happened, so when she shouted at me "Aye! Excuse me!.." I was relieved when she simply said I smelt "damn good." hahaha

    I have been testing LOADS of samples recently as i'm quite new to this fragrance hobby, and I always ask my girlfriend her opinion. She's kind of getting fed up of me asking "how do you like this one?" and sticking my wrist in her face.

    Today I tried my sample of L'instant de Guerlain Extreme, and without prompting she told me I smell fantastic, despite her weariness of my constant requests for feedback. I think i'll be getting a bottle.

    Now that's what I call feedback.

    Don't mean to knock you, but the point is to be original. The scents "everyone has" probably won't separate you from the rest.
    Yes, I was in Walgreen's recently and noticed Armani Code on sale. They actually had a large, department-store-like fragrance section with its own cash register and sales person.

    I think environment must have something to do with it, though. For example, thinking about it I can't recall ever hearing a remark about someone's fragrance, man or woman, at work, in all the years I have been employed (I do get complements on my clothes at work, however, especially lately). I have usually worked in places where most people had private offices, which meant you usually couldn't smell someone unless you were in a meeting, in which case it would be less appropriate to make a comment. Also, people in my work environments generally have used fragrances very discretely, if at all.

    I would also guess people would be more likely to complement your fragrance in the south than in the north and in environments where conspicuous fragrance-wearing was more common (e.g., bars and nightclubs). I would guess that places where people come and go a lot or work in an open space would produce more comments than a more sedate environment and also places where people came in close contact with each other, like a restaurant or hair salon.

    My wife gave me the exact same response with LIDGE. And she is also annoyed by me always asking "and what about this one?". My enthusiasm was tempered by the fact that about a week later I asked her to sniff LIDGE (didn't tell her it's the same scent as before) and she gave it a so-so response. LOL.

    The other ones she complimented independently was Absolue Pour Le Soir.

    LIDGE sounds considerably less 'colourful' than L'instant de Guerlain Extreme

    Yeah, LIDGE does sound like a bathroom or furniture cleaning product.

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

    I will say that all this is highly dependent on each person, how your skin reacts to the cologne, your personality, etc. For example, many people rave about Bond No. 9 New Haarlem. I tried it on over the weekend @ Saks and it smelled disgusting to me. Even the woman at the fragrance counter shook her head when I put it on....and suggested I try another scent.

    There is no 'magic formula' scent. There are many great scents out there, but it's all trial and error.

    What may work for one guy won't necessarily work at all for you.

    I've browsed the Walgreen's fragrance counters at a couple local stores to see if I could find anything interesting at a good price. Unfortunately I found that several fragrances were not really that much cheaper than a regular department store. They did have some cheaper ones but those were things like Grey Flannel and other EA frags. Fahrenheit was $52 for a 1.7 oz. Heck, Wal-Mart has it for $43. I'm sure they have some really good deals for the holiday season.

    I got a compliment from a woman behind the counter while on a cruise to the Bahamas this past weekend while wearing Aventus (the batch I have is fruity, not smoky). And yesterday got another while wearing Minotaure.

    The Walgreen selection I saw was slightly better than CVS and the prices were not anything special. Among retail outlets I have checked, Target seems to have the best prices though the selection is only the regular standards. Those places all have sales, though. I've only found a really good selection retail at the very high end department stores, though the Sephora I visit from time to time (fairly sedate, not mobbed with kids) is getting better, at least in the men's dept.
