    I´ve been adding new fragrances to my collection but none seems to receive as much compliments as this underrated gem.



    It´s getting very, very close to top my all-time best compliment getter, Xeryus Rouge.

    Chalk another one up for A*Men and GIT. I seriously am debating whether I want to wear A*Men around one particular co-worker of mine or not given she wouldn't stop talking about how really good I smelled for the first ten minutes of being there.

    GIT has been great to me, Amen not so much. Outside of my wife, I have not had a cologne compliment in a while, like 4 or 5 months. No biggie, I wear them for myself and her anyway. Aventus has been my biggest compliment draw over the past two years.

    I have to agree with the GIT as the ICON of attention getters. On St. Pat's Day this Past year I had a woman in a bar Physically Start hugging because I smelled so good, I'm sure there was some Alcohol involved..... On a more serious note Cologne is a small part of the Equation of Attraction. I would say in the Niche Model The 3 Top Creeds (GIT, MI and Aventus) are great compliment getters..... outside Niche Chanel-Platinum Egoiste, Paco Rabanne- 1 Million, D&G The One and Gucci Envy have all been attention getters. In the end it's your Confidence Level that women have a Sixth Sense of, so never hesitate or secong guess yourself when approaching a woman you're attracted to.

    ...or it's a system glitch. Honestly, could be either one. Regardless, GIT's a good choice

    Oh, and... a compliment:

    +1 for Gucci Pour Homme II from a lovely woman (in her early 30s? Just a guess, which probably means she's in her late 30s since I'm frigging clueless about guessing women's ages. Sorry, ladies, but you all look lovely and young to me, even when you're older than I am. I REALLY suck at guessing women's ages). Anyway... I got a nice compliment on Gph1 again today. I recently bought Aventus and I love it, but there's something about Gph I and II that I find so addictive. I just keep reaching for them in the morning.

    Allured by your compliments Hobbes22, Scent Intense (as you know so well) is a perfect cult fragrance for clubbing, is really chic and mysterious, a sophisticated and smoky (ambery) suede, i use to enjoy it in the darkest down town clubs when i'm wearing dark fine garments and i'm looking for something intriguing as a sinister lady of the night. Wonderful, this fragrance helps me to seize the prey. Hold on wearing it.

    Some notes

    -I did my best to not include discontinued fragrances. They aren't very popular to begin with and will only continue to be eclipsed by available fragrances that people are still wearing. I also intended this to be a tool to guide tests/buys, so there's not much point in including them from that standpoint.

    -The ratio column is a ratio of positive reviews:total reviews compiled from Basenotes, Fragrantica, and several other sites. For Basenotes I counted neutral reviews as negative reviews (nobody wants to waste time with something that's "meh"). Fragrantica gives the average out of 5, so I converted that to a percentage and multiplied by the number of votes to get my positive reviews total for that site. Every compliment from this thread and the female thread is also counted as one positive review.

    -Columns E-H are assorted notes about the fragrances that I made in my quest to determine which ones to buy testers of. Most of the information comes from Fragrantica, so please spare me your outrage if some of this doesn't match up with your opinion.

    -Sheet 1 contains all fragrances with over 100 total reviews. Sheet 2 Contains the rest. I have a statistical formula on my personal spreadsheet to correct the score for small sample size, but the function it uses is not supported by Google docs, so I opted for the straight ratio instead. This means that if I put the fragrances all on the same sheet and sorted by ratio, the top would be dominated by fragrances that one or two people swear are awesome.

    -I will try to keep this updated, but I don't intend to post here every time I do.
    You are the man!! Thank u

    I rarely get compliments, I don't actively seek them, but I got one on Pure Malt a few months back. A very (VERY) pretty girl told me that I smelled nice. :-)

    I bought recently, Davidoff cool water, applied it and went out into the street away from the entrance about 50 meters down the street, and then two young women caught up and asked, "Excuse me, how is your perfume?" it was funny!

    Two compliments while on holiday:

    - First was from the housekeeper of where I was staying. I had thrown the empty bottle out and I noticed that she kept it. She told me "I like to keep this in my room. It reminds me of you and the summer" (I have been going over to stay there during the summer). The winner here? My highest compliment-getter by far, Terre d' Hermes.

    - Having applied some the day before, there was an after-scent on my t-shirt. I was in a very humid and muggy climate, temperature 45C (yes you read correctly!). Having taken off the t-shirt and after a 1.5hr swim in the sea, a female relative commented that "I smelt heavenly". What else other than Aventus.

    My two winners for compliments are easy to pick now

    Aventus & A*men

    Pretty much every time I wear these I get compliments.

    I was up in the air about Terre d' Hermes and was contemplating selling it, until a girl at my friends rooftop party (that I was only introduced to earlier) came up to me later that night and sniffed my chest unannounced.

    Also, New Haarlem definitely has gotten me quite a few interested sniffs while wearing it. Rarely does someone other than family actually tell me I smell good, but New Haarlem gets obvious looks of intrigue.

    Even after using the best perfumes I have realized that if I use a good Body splash of the same perfume / deo brand it works much better and last longer. Of course one gets compliments.

    Best attention getters I have found:
    1) Creed Aventus
    2) by Kilian Straight to Heaven
    3) A*Men Pure Havane
    4) A*Men Pure Malt
    5) Bleecker Street (Bond No. 9)

    - - - Updated - - -

    Of course, if you are good looking, you can wear your fathers old bottle of Hai Karate and get attention. And if you're ugly... well, there really isn't any fragrance invented yet that will get you where you need to go.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Original Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Creed - Aventus
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    6. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    7. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    8. Dior - Homme Sport 2012
    9. Creed - Virgin Island Water
    10. Kenneth Cole - Black
