Oh for crying out loud:
The problem is that I not only get female compliments from it, including teenage girls, octagenerians, my ex-wife, sundry ex-girlfriends, lady wrestlers, models, waitresses, heiresses, strippers, nuns, psychos and actresses.
I also get complimented by men, straight and gay, eunuchs, children, female impersonators, cops, radiologists (while interpreting my M.R.I results) , IRS auditors, and probably extra-terrrestrials.
The good news is, I love Himalaya.
( Now on a date or on the prowl, I'm a believer in the heavy artillery: Antaeus, Roma, Minotaure, Nicole Miller for Men, Havana--The ones that will elicit lust or revulsion, rather than merely a pat on the head.--Himalaya fits this category as well, but I like variety and the chance to wear nightime scents that I can't get away with in the noonday sun hereabouts. )
What gets to me is when I get complimented on frags that are, to put it kindly, less than 5 star scents.
But I whine,
I believe it was Emily Post--or perhaps Attila the Hun--who wrote that one should always take a compliment graciously, even if it makes one cringe.
Thank you ever so much. I'm so pleased you noticed my cologne, and if I may say so, have a lovely day.
Someone please remove the apostrophe in the thread title..
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!
The scent of money. Seriously, it's all women really care about at the end of the day.
SL Santal Blanc
Hermessence Vetiver Tonka
Aqua Di Parma Colonia Intensa
CB Wild Hunt
Raw Vanilla still works and is oh so affordable
These all elicit such amazing reactions from women I have a few others but for the sake of space and carpal tunell I will stop there.
D&G pour homme
Acqua di Gio
l eau dissy
These are universally liked by the opposite sex.
And she really liked the smell.
But I prefer VG's Very Sexy 1 and have put Body Kouros on sale on this forum:
As of tonight, I can vouchsafe the awesome power of Alexander McQueen's Kingdom on women. Sweet and darkly musky at the same time. I love it when a woman purrs...
i dont get too many compliments usually (i think i often under apply) but a couple of weeks ago i stopped off at the post office and picked up a package (thanks sergey!). i knew that i was picking it up so i didnt put on a frag in the morning. i applied two short sprays and went back to work.
a female coworker followed me around the rest of the day. she was quite open about it too. 'yes- i am following you' & 'i just want to eat you' & 'that scent drives me nuts'.
note to self- never wear this to work! involved women and coworkers are off limits for me (two strikes there).
later i had to stop by the hospital and an older woman being pushed in a wheel chair came on to the elevator that i was riding. 'something smells good'.
montale- white aoud
i do like it quite a bit but i perfer black aoud and lime aoud (my fav so far from montale).
I used to get lot of compliments at work when I wore Paul Smith Extreme and L'eau D'Issey but the only comment that matters to me is from the Squadron Leader when I wear Kouros . . . it knocks her bandy.
As I reported in another thread yesterday, Chanel Allure Homme Cologne Sport has garnered some recent attention.
Giving Life My All And Improving Every Day
Before my "compliment-fest" yesterday, I had not received a compliment from anyone outside my wife and mom in over a year.
I am led to believe that a) I really don't wear enough cologne 90% of the time... b) most people are hesitant to compliment on scent in the southern USA.
I am wearing Creed Original Santal today...just 2 sprays for 95 degree heat.
Rive Gauche, Safari, Terre d Hermes
I've never had a compliment from anyone but my wife, but when I wear MKK I notice women tend to stand closer than usual, quite a bit closer.
The only time I've gotten a completely random compliment was on an elevator while I was wearing the original Curve a year ago before my fragrance kick started. I do, however, compliment myself very regularly on how sexy I smell.
only my good friends ask me what I´m wearing...I think the strangers are quiet and enjoy the smell...I see how they act...they come closer or they come many times a cross to get a whiff...some people are shy to ask what I´m wearing...I never had that, that somenone slide on the knees to me and ask me what I´m wearing. Only how they positiv act...how their nose start sniffing.
If I smell something good on somebody else...I would never ask the person what he or she is wearing...I find out my self by testing.
If you don't count my natural pheromones (I am extremely sexy lol), I'd have to say JPG Le Male and Chanel Allure Homme Sport.
What fragrance attracts the most femaels? Simple....any clean, citrus or soapy fragrance with a slight hint of clean perspiration. Drives women wild and straight into the "sack". Anything too perfumey is a tirn off.
What fragrance attracts the most females? Simple....any clean, citrus or soapy fragrance with a slight hint of your own clean perspiration. Drives women wild and straight into the "sack". Anything too perfumey is a turn off.
I agree with Tanto, but "too much" is subjective, and based largely on your skin. For example, I wear a spray on the inside of each wrist, one on the base of the neck where the collar bones meet, and one on the diaphragm. Maybe one on the stomach, just for late-nights when you need scent that lasts
That being said, I don't necessarily get compliments, but I don't care. Actions speak louder than words. A woman whose eyes get soft, and knees get weak, while she begins to breathe harder, is much much more satisfying than hearing "You smell like you belong in my bedroom tonight with me"
I'm sure we've all mad girls stop kissing their boyfriends so they could turn their heads and get a second whiff, or we've made girls hearts race for the man that smells so utterly delicious and charming; and, whether or not you get complimented, what matters is that you notice a reaction to it. Women can't hide feelings very easily
i agree with you on that completely.......99% of the time, the bigger the effect your fragrance will have on a female, the more likelier she will not tell you about it.....or tell you about it much later(after you had sex...started going out...etc). What I like the most, is when fragrance smells so good on me that it literally makes me feel sexier without anyone saying anything......Musc Ravageur does that for me.
Today I got a compliment from a young women in my work...I´m wearing Wall Street by Bond No. 9.
My girlfriend love this scent.
That's not really a rule. I never had a female compliment on my safe fragrances. I would love a compliment on Polo Double Black or Eau d'Hadrien for example, but I never got any.
I think it is true that women go for fresh aquatic scents on a man, Acqua Di Gio, Issey etc, they prefer feeling of "cleanness" more than anything IMHO.
