    Once ago a chick told me what kind of unisex perfume are you wearing? I was like WTF!

    I was wearing JPG - Le Male and that was the first time i heard someone that says Le Male smells like unisex fragrance.

    Btw, in my country Le Male isn't popular at all, the men and women here only wear designer fragrances from very well known brands like Paco Rabanne, Givency, Versace and Armani or some cheap colognes from Avon/Oriflame.

    I calculated compliment rate based on the previous tally. This list is about expected number of compliments per year for a fragrance. Total compliments can be misleading because older fragrances will obviously get more compliment count because they have been out on the market longer, when this is adjusted, compliment rate is a better indicator of how often a fragrance gets complimented.

    Aventus 66
    La Nuit de L`homme 32
    Green Irish Tweed 16.2
    Bleu de Chanel 15.5
    L`eau D`Issey Pour Homme 14
    A*Men Pure Havane 14
    Terre D`Hermes 12
    Millesime Imperiale 11.1
    Allure Homme Sport 9.8
    Dior Homme 9.3
    Acque di Gio 8.9
    A*Men Pure Malt 8.7
    A*Men 8.3
    Le Male 7.8
    Versace Pour Homme 7.8
    Body Kouros 7.7
    Musc Ravageur 7.6
    Kouros 7.4
    Rive Gauche 7.2
    Silver Mountain Water 7.2

    Aventus is the compliment getter for me.

    L'homme is a close second

    I have a reputation at work for smelling good. I take pride in not wearing too much, bust just enough to where a girl can notice and not feel overpowered. Finding ladies buried in my neck is not uncommon.

    This one depends. At a club or bar, or out on the street? In winter, or summer? Has it dried down or is it fresh out of the bottle? Have I been sweating, or did I use the scented deoderant and wash in the shower gel/all over shampoo, and am I dressed up or down?

    Is this purely about compliments, or the effect a fragrance has on women?

    For a twenty five year old at a week-long music festival where showers are in short supply I think compliments will be had via something quite different to what will reel them in for a well-scrubbed, clean shaven thirty five year old at a wedding reception.

    Some scents bring compliments, yes. If the right sort of woman picks it up and thinks it nice she'll tell you so, or perhaps her boyfriend wears it and she is complimenting herself in a roundabout way? Or perhaps she wishes he did, maybe she wants to buy it for him. At any rate it's nice when it happens, but it isn't much compared to the splash that some other fragrances can make. Whether it is that almost primal effect that turns thoughts in a very particular and advantageous direction, or by drawing a very focused sort of attention. I've been on both ends of this and have no reason to doubt it.

    Which scent though? The short answer: the right one. It's not necessarily different for everyone, but it certainly isn't the same either. So don't worry if you've tried the current 'it' fragrance and it didn't get results. And bear in mind that if you want to wear fragrance for others as opposed to yourself it makes sense to try some things you don't personally enjoy. If you dislike that idea it's not a problem at all. A scent that makes you feel confident and attractive will enhance your appeal as much as anything whether it draws compliments or not.

    I really like your thoughtful take on it all! People should wear fragrances they like and chances are they wont be the only one on earth who will like what they're wearing too. Life's too short - you have to please yourself with your choice in fragrances! I like ones that are probably a bit too old for a 27 year old to be wearing (Oscar de la renta's Pour Lui) but I love it. In saying that I do like 1 particular 'it' fragrance which is Acqua Di Gio - but not BECAUSE it's and 'it' frag - simply because I smelled it and it took me back to highschool for whatever reason. Anyway...I've gone off topic a bit I think. all I was really going to say was - good advise Miket!

    I got a spot on compliment from a female colleague today at work.

    -What is this cologne? it smells really good, smells like heaven!
    -Really? How do you know how heaven smells like?
    -Yes. I don't, but I think this smells amazing, I love it.
    -Do you know what's the name of it?
    -No, tell me.
    -Straight to Heaven!
    -You're kidding!!! Wow! ... what a name!!

    And then she made me send her a link to By Kilian website because she wanted to check out the women collection.

    Cool What fragrance do you wear just before you go to bed to get your lady excited ,ready for love?

    Is thier a particular fragrance that you keep in reserve for that special, intimate moment? What others refer to as a close-combat scent?

    I've never understood why anyone would use a term like "combat" for dating and sex. I'm not talking about you since I realize you're quoting a common term.

    My advice is one I was complimented on last night: Gucci Pour Homme II. I was actually coming here to post a +1 on compliments for it.

    Others may disagree, and that's fine since we all have different approaches, but I'm a single guy and I've found that the best choice for a scent is one that's attractive without being blunt about sex. In other words, smell attractive, but DON'T smell like you're trying to get laid.

    I don't keep GphII in reserve. I bought it strictly for a dating scent, but it turned out to be so versatile that I now wear it a lot. It's sophisticated enough to wear to a meeting, it's stylish enough to wear out for drinks, it's sexy enough to wear on a date. And the idiots at Gucci are probably going to discontinue it soon. I highly recommend giving it a sniff to see if you'd like it. Another good choice is Aventus, but that costs 3X what GphII costs. It's excellent, but I can't say it's been better for me. I'm glad I own both though.

    If you're in a relationship, the rules are totally different, of course. It's easier then since you know what you like and you know what she likes. Wear that

    One more thought on scents for intimate moments: A scent with less projection is better. The last thing you want to do as your body heats up is create an overwhelming scent cloud.

    Yeah, but that's awesome! It means it isn't common, which means you smell unique. If you wanted something everybody already knows, go with Acqua Di Gio. Personally, I never explain what it is when asked. I just say "It's called Aventus" and leave it at that.

    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Creed - Virgin Island Water
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Creed - Original Cologne
    10. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men

    My wife and daughter love Aventus, MI and GIT and these would be considered my "close combat" scents; however, I received my first ever compliment from outside the family (an employee) and it happens to be my first wearing of this particular cologne. I've worn aventus, GIT, MI and many of the other powerhouses mentioned throughout this thread for the past 6 months or so to work without compliment. But today, she walked into my office about 1 hour after about 5-6 sprays (a little more quantity than my usual dose) and before she got halfway to my desk she said "WOW, what is that cologne; that smells awesome"? The answer: "Bleu de Chanel".

    I own the 4 you mention and they would actually be in my current Top 10, and maybe Top 5! Great all-around scents. My wife digs them all.

    When I sampled Bleu de Chanel, I wasn't very impressed. I'm coming to think that since I sampled it at Sephora, I something else impaired my judgement.

    A coupla days ago, I was sitting next to a woman in church as she leaned in with dreamy, smokey eyes and said: " I realize that you wear nice fragrances but WHAT ON EARTH is THIS ONE?? It smells devine!" I leaned in and replied, "Thank you, dear. I didn't know you that you had a nose for the sweet science of aromathology. The kind soul leaned back in and whispered, "Would you please tell me what it is so that I can purchase a bottle for my husband and son-in-law."
    Mildly taken aback, I leaned in once again and whispered to her, "Costume Natonal. Highly excited and pleased, she sniffed me deeply, again, and sat back in her chair.
    I "forgot" to add 21.
