I went to the club. Plaid shirt with the 2 buttons popped showin all my chest hair, I wore a giant fake gold chain, some sunglasses, spiked my hair. I sprayed Kouros on my chest 5 times a minute before I walked on the club. I had like 4 random women all over me telling me I smelled delicious.
If the occasion's right... DHI will snag you a few
Gotta give more praise to AVENTUS. Gave my 17 year old son a decant with one instruction - Never more than one spray to the neck. He says several girls gave him so many compliments.
"Lomani" for sure i will say this is the best one for me
Out of the ones I own, YSL La Nuit, Le Male and most recently Bleu de Chanel are the top compliment getters.
I have a lot of women in my life and have received many compliments before on various fragrances; however, my favorite fragrance--the one I absolutely adore, has received nothing but shame. Every single girl I have worn it around has been completely disgusted by it. Girls that have given me compliments on previous colognes tell me to not wear it no more.
At first, I thought it was a bad batch or something and have since purchased another but nothing has changed.
I live in a tad warmer weather, Southern California. Could this be a factor?
Could it be my skin chemistry?!
I have tested it on my clothes as well and similar reactions.
In fact, my sister said she wanted to puke after being around me once and I only did 1 spray!
I am at a loss for words.
The fragrance I am referring to is La Nuit De l'homme by YSL EDT
Shocked to say the least considering the opposite reaction everyone else gets.
6 months of wearing fragrances daily and today was my...SECOND compliment. Fine by me, as long as I know the smell is nice.
Perhaps you have extremely dry skin and your fragrances are not projecting to others? I find it so difficult to believe that you don't get compliments more often.
I also think that a lot of people are too shy to give a compliment. I'm sure many have thought: "Ohh you smell nice" but when it comes down to it they can't project the words out their mouth cause they think it's embarrassing or whatever.
That's why most people garner compliments from those individuals that they are close to or know well enough.
Also, depends on the environment you're in daily. If you work behind a cubital all day, you won't get much attention.
If you go to school or a party/club then you'll get plenty.

Current Favorites (not in any particular order)
Hanae Mori HM EDT
Terre d'Hermes Parfum
Tom Ford Extreme
I have over 50 fragrances in my wardrobe (45 or so too many) which I wear daily and I can honestly say, I can't recall the last time I received a compliment.
Am I bothered? Absolutely not. Do I smell divine almost all of the time? To my nose, absolutely without question. Here endeth the lesson.
Especially, when you wear that Musc Ravageur
Got Avant Garde by Lanvin as a gift from my wife few days back, though, I was not very keen to buy it, but she got it for me...my God! what a compliment getter it turned out to be!! Wore it yesterday to a party and got over a dozen compliments from both sexes..
For me its YSL la nuit de lhomm and Versace eau fraiche Easy compliment getters.
Had a date go the right way, and back at my place my shirt was unbuttoned, and the chick was going nuts smelling my chest. Well, thanks to Original Santal and my rugged good looks, I scored the big one. Or I should say small one, she was a 5'2 Asian...
My current girlfriend loves Grey Vetiver. And she likes Costume National homme in the evening when it calms down a little. (at first it's pretty heavy, but last all day strong. By evening it's perfect for her)
I have worn fragrances for over thirty years and had never recieved comments no matter what i wore.
However i have just started wearing " La Perla Essence " by Grigioperla and everytime i get people asking me what it is.
Men and Women both have asked.
I am surprised there has been little talk of this fragrance because i think its an absolute Gem.
Polo modern reserve
YSL La Nuit de L'Homme gets me noticed the most, perfect for cold weather and the nightlife
3 compliments today, from 3 different women!
I was wearing Noir de Reminiscence.
A Men also, but you have to be careful wearing it no matter what flanker it is can be way overpowering. A fellow worker of mine make the room smell like a damn bakery wearing the original! Not good
Today i was complimented for the first time in years by a female friend - enthusiastically so. I was wearing tommy girl.
I tailored my purchases to suit the last tally. From those I've gotten a few compliments.
Burberry London 2
Le Male 1
Rochas Man 1
I have however never received compliments for Green Irish Tweed or L'eu Dissey curiously. Perhaps due to dry skin or other factors. It be great if someone could devise a more thorough census to control the many variables though.
How many compliments? How long ago? How many frags do you have and what do you have? Age of complimenter? Age of wearer? Etc.
