    OMG! Look what you've started w/ your Aventus stories , Noirdrakkar. You've created a monster. Maybe there should be another thread started about amazingly "true" Aventus stories. Amusing to say the least.

    I think some of us are just poking fun at the silliness of the hype.

    Getting the thread back on track:
    Lalique White. I got a compliment on this one over lunch today. It was from a friend, so I take it with a grain of salt, but still, it's nice.

    Lalique White is a really interesting scent. It starts out REALLY peppery. Too peppery for my tastes, but after 15 minutes or so, it becomes a really fresh, clean scent before eventually (and somewhat surprisingly) evolves into woods. Because of the opening, I don't know if I'd buy this one... but I'm enjoying the sample. It seems to be a people-pleaser with some character, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who loves fresh scents and pepper.

    Bois de Portugal is sexier than Aventus, IMO...own them both... feedback was better with BdP!

    Lalique white is wonderful but lasts nothing on me, have to use one fifth of the bottle!

    Thank you for providing the spread sheet! Looks great! I have yet to try Aventus and my interest is quite piqued but it may be too expensive as a Christmas gift. What to do...

    Received my first compliment today. I walked by a lady...she stopped and said, "Ooh, you smell nice. What are you wearing?"

    It was Tom Ford for Men Extreme.

    To be fair........the lady was my grandma

    Got one at the weekend from my cousin.... "oooh you smell nice!". Aventus... lightly applied I might add. I don't get that many from this one, but then again I don't wear it all that much.

    Over the last 5 years, the only show stoppers I've had are the original Terre d'Hermes and Aventus. They would actually bring compliments from strangers, a rare feat in my experience.

    I may be wrong, but I think 'Aqua Di Gio' receives lots of compliments, or at least it used to.

    I remember my friend used to wear it and whenever we would go out to a lounge or a bar, I remember him receiving compliments for his frag. I never read anything about it, but it was all I kept hearing 7 or 6 years ago. So I am surprised Aqua Di Gio hasn't been getting a lot of it on the forums! But again maybe I'm wrong.

    The most notable compliment I've received was for a cologne made by Amouage a few years ago. I don't remember the specific name, I only had some it (The original bottle was transparent with an ivory-color cap. I don't see it on the website) The girl called me a day later and told me that she enjoyed it, and could still smell it in the car. I personally never came to love it... it was way to strong for my taste, but I am planning to have a look at their current line up.

    Most people here know ADG is a top compliment getter. Its the best selling cologne in the world for a reason. Most people here tend to avoid it because there are more options and because ADG is too popular for its own good (people know you are wearing ADG, ladies think it smells like their ex, etc...).

    I was in the grocery store Wednesday and this lady was walking behind me, talking on her cell phone. She was telling someone, "This guy smells REALLY good. I don't know what he's wearing, but wow he smells good."

    It was Polo.

    I get a lot of compliments with Polo.

    This is going to sound painfully familiar to most of you, but Aventus.

    This is actually a big deal for me because I'm usually very quiet and out-of-the-way, I never wear "loud" fragrances, and I never spray more than 3 sprays of anything (and usually not more than 2). Basically, very few people can even tell that I'm wearing a fragrance. I supposed this is reflected in the fact that I've gotten a grand total of 3 fragrance compliments in my entire life.

    But the fourth one was yesterday! I was wearing Aventus and my hairdresser gave me a compliment. I know she wasn't just doing it to be nice because I've worn other, more powerful things to the barber shop and she hasn't mentioned them.

    Strangely, it's Old Spice. When I wear some of the original 80's stuff that I still have, several people have commented how pleasant and different it is, which is ironic, given how ubiquitous it is...

    I bet if Carrot Top wore Aventus the girls would stay a mile away. Aventus is not all that great.

    Whenever I wear Legend by Montblanc, I get a LOT of attention from the opposite sex. Almost like in an Axe (Lynx) commercial. It's like they just want to hang around sniffing at me!!

    It's odd. The last compliments I've gotten have been while wearing fragrances I'm not too fond of.

    One was for Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme (made in Germany version, not the lovely vintage Italian) and the other for Lacoste Pour Homme (my quick i'm-in-a-hurry-and-don't-want-to-think-what-to-spray-on fragrance).

    +1 for Hanae Mori H.M. (not to be confused with their new HiM). I thought H.M. might be too sweet, but boy did my date love it on me. I got one of the most enthusiastic unsolicited compliments I've received in a LONG time.

    Really, I shouldn't worry about H.M. being too sweet since it's nowhere near as sweet as things like 1 Million or Guilty.

    Not strange at all actually. The stuff is classic, and it's making a resurgence thanks to those brilliant ads. It's interesting to think it dates back to the 1930s. I wonder how much the smell has changed through the decades.

    I bet that happens to a lot of us. I rarely get complimented on my favorites... but that frigging $15 bottle of Curve is a sure thing. Go figure. Granted, I really like Curve (and have no problem admitting it), but I'd be thrilled if Gucci Pour Homme got me compliments like that! I do get compliments on Aventus, but they're never as enthusiastic as the compliments I get when wearing Hanae Mori which I picked up for around $30.
