    I should give vanilla another chance. My first experience with it was with Le Male, which I loved for a month, then I got really tired (and sick) of it. The Dreamer seemed to pull off vanilla the same way. I also tried Fahrenheit 32. On me, it started off citrusy, then it gets really warm and the sweet vanilla comes out. It's intended as a warm weather fragrance, but for some reason on me, it feels like it's better suited for fall and winter. Iceberg Twice was the only vanilla that I really hated. It was something about that stale vanilla smell that made me nauseous, even though people on this board rave about it. My chemistry (and my senses) reacted pretty badly to this one.

    I bought Channel Allure Homme Sport EDT in March and I already gto two female compliments on it!

    Guerlain L'instant PH gets alot of female compliments - so this one is probably the one that gets me the most.

    Armani Attitude, Boucheron PH, Versace L'Homme, Just Cavalli Blu, Bulgari PH Extreme, Tonino Lamborghini Chrono, Tonino Lamborghini EDP and Uomo Moschino also brought compliments.

    Someone says Kouros and someone says Body Kouros. So which is better for picking up girls ?

    Just like men women are different too. Don't expect 1 smell to magically pick up women just because you're wearing a frag...especially kouros!

    I've gotten compliments on Boss In Motion (an amazing vanilla orange scent to my nose, though the reviews mostly beat up on it) and Armani Code. Wearing In Motion, a girl told me she was in heaven smelling me, whereas with Code I just got told I smelled nice. All from ladies I was seeing, I've yet to get a compliment from a stranger.

    i honestly got so many compliments over the past 6 months alone while wearing so many different fragrances that I can not honestly say now which ones specifically do "the trick!". but i have figured out that younger females(I will focus on this group ages 18-29) are generally more appealed by gourmand or extremely sweet/synthetic colognes and of course the fresh/aquatics.

    and there is also a stark difference in someone telling you "oh that smells nice" or "that smells nice" as opposed to a female finding the scent invigorating....as many have correctly pointed out, in many of those cases when a female is positively overwhelmed by a fragrance in many cases she will not have the courage to tell you what she really thinks(especially if she happens to be a total stranger).

    Gourmand scents that will always get you noticed by the opposite sex - Body Kouros, Rochas man, Tom Ford Black Orchid and as much as i hate it A*men.

    there are too many sweet scents to mention that are "beloved" by opposite sex....Diesel Plus Plus, Fierce by A&F is a definition of a cheap, synthetic, super sweet scent which is adored by younger women. If you want to go with something classy but good in appeal to women try Carlos Santana for Men. Sweet, beautiful, elegant and sexy.

    As far as the aquatics/fresh/citrus scents go - ADG.....SMW from Creed is an expensive way to have females follow you around.

    however if you want to try something outside the box and be different and yet still get incredible amounts of attention - Musc Ravageur is a great way to go....sweet oriental combines masculinity, sensuality with an edge and a bite with enevelop you with its unmistakable aroma....you have a chance of actually being stopped by a stranger for wearing this one.

    or try something really strange and wear what you enjoy yourself and in the process watch others love it too.....recently I wore Eclat D'arpege by Lanvin(which is a female perfume) in public mall and I must have counted 14-18 compliments from complete strangers.....and out of them all only one was a male, the rest were girls/women ranging from as young as probably 15 to late 30's. So, wear what you love yourself and the rest will take care of itself.

    Haha Acceptfacts I think we have very similar taste in fragrance...My two top fragrances right now are Creed SMW and FM Musc Ravageur, and I have a feeling that those are somewhere in your top as well.

    On another note, I got pretty good compliments on Canali. I can remember one coworker saying that I smelled expensive, and another said that something smelled good. This girl I was seeing actually went pretty crazy over it. I sprayed a card for her and I think she kept it in her purse and ended up smelling it like 20 times when I wasn't with her. Go figure...always kinda liked that one.

    yup...i'm a huge fan of MR and enjoy SMW very much as well......I own a bottle of Canali and thought it smelled exquisite on a card......but it is way too sutble and dissapears on me almost immediately.

    Where do you live? 14 - 18 compliments in one visit to a mall. I'm sorry but that just seems absurd.

    I would have to say that Bengal Black Musk (which is an oil) has always and still gets me the most compliments from Women and Men. It is very mysterious and full of silliage and longevity. It has a slight incensy/frankincense base and this is the only oil I know that you can use as alone or as a base for any winter fragrance. This oil transitions from smell to skin like nothing I have seen before.

    Acceptfacts...I would have to say as well that that many compliments in a day is for the record books. Some people don't get that many compliments in a month or even a year...LOL.

    This Muslim Guy gets it for me. It is not synthetic or cut and from what I understand he gets it from Egypt. It is not a scent to wear in the warm months as it is very powerful.

    The musk is in all likelihood synthetic since the musk deer is endangered and protected - making the "real stuff" very expensive. If the musk is anywhere near affordable, it will be synthetic for sure.

    I know, I have some real musk. In fact I even made my own tincture from the grains according to an age old recipe: 100 parts alcohol, 10 parts rose water and 1 part musk. It's still to 'young' to use though, as it's only one year old, will get better with time, I'd say in another four years it'll be great.

    Baldessarini Del Mar and Zegna Z have given me copliments from 2 different female boss's.
    I was also walking by a lady ( must have been in late 40s), and she told me I smelled amazing and that "...it really worked for me...", which is funny but I guess all compliments are flattering.

    I've come to the conclusion, which may not be correct, that women ( generally) prefer Fresh, Aquatic, Feminine or Sweet fragarences on men. Just a generalization. But I've noticed when at dept stores and else where when a female is consulting a male on a frag. ( as a sales lady or lover) that they seem to be drawn upon those aspects.

    So , I've matured a bit from Aquatics, even though I know that is what has garnered me attention, along with overly sweet frags. I'll be stunned if Bvlgari Homme gets me a complitment, or Rive Gauche for that matter. I've just purchased Burberry Brit, and I know that would appeal to female's more so ( although, that is NOT why I bought it).

    I guess I apreciate the adivce on this site more, than trying to appeal my scent to the opposite gender....Good lord, where have my priorities gone?

    How much perfume are all of you wearing and how are you spraying? The only person who ever comments on how I smell is my girlfriend - and that only when she gets fairly close.

    Maybe I don't have the sort of skin that lends itself to large amounts of sillage - I find that if i spray much more than I currently do, I end up with a headache anyway.

    The only scent I've tried yet that got much of a reaction was Michael Kors for Men - which caused every woman that sat near me that day to start sneezing.

    how much you spray depends on several factors; how long does the frag stay on your skin? How strong is the frag? How soon will you be around other people? What's the weather like?

    Generally, I give 2-3 sprays on the neck (including the back), 2 - 3 on the chest, and one on each elbowpit depending on the kind of shirt I'll be wearing. For a stronger scent (jpg le male) it would be significantly less. For something weaker it can be more.

    If you wear an undershirt, try spraying that also to help the scent last on you.

    You can ask people you're comfortable with if they can smell you. Family members maybe. Ask them to comment whenever they get whiffs of your scent. That way you know if your scent is reaching other people. If it doesn't, maybe you should spray a little more.
    And come on, you wear M7 and Polo Explorer. You must smell good.
