    Chalk one up for L'Air du Desert Marocain. The longevity on L'ADDM is outstanding. I wore it on a date last night and she really enjoyed it. In fact, she complimented me on it at least 8 hours after I'd put it on. Maybe closer to 9. I wore 3 sprays plus a 4th as a light mist to walk through. I've only had a few chances to wear this one so far, so I'm still learning it, but wow am I pleased with this purchase. L'ADDM is excellent.

    Walked into my doctors office yesterday. Registered with the nurse and took a seat. A single patient in the waiting area and as I sit she says."Sir I do not know what you are wearing but it smells beautiful". Said to her, maam it's called Trussardi Uomo. She said never heard of it.

    this morning from an HR lady in the office. I am wearing Straight to Heaven from by Kilian. I was not sure this fragrance would do the magic. It starts to sharp to me but dry down is great……. I started to think to purchase it…… since I am using a sample today

    I had just arrived at a SuperBowl party. A woman was walking by on her way to the kitchen area when she abruptly pivoted around and started following her nose. She stopped in front of me and said, "Oooooh, you're smelling so good tonight!" That's why Chergui is "top dog" in my rotation.

    [QUOTE=Connoisseur;1253773]I had a dinner date interrupted last week by a waitress that wasn't our own. Apparently I had walked by her coming in and she just had to know what fragrance I was wearing. She was so cute and apologetic for the interruption. I told her it was Millesime Imperial by Creed. She smiled and handed me a piece of paper and a pen asking if I could write down the name for her. She asked me where I got it and how much it cost me so I told her about Ebay and roughly the price to expect to pay. She shrugged it off saying she would pay anything to have her boyfriend smell like that.

    Probably YSL L'Homme. Got a compliment today while wearing L'Homme. I was surprised as I barely ever get compliments. I use to spray very lightly so that ppl around me can barely smell my scent.

    Either Aventus or Dior Homme Intense. Aventus causes people to stand noticeably closer...and you can notice deeper breaths being taken...haha! DHI actually gets people talking though.

    I occassionally layer two relatively inexpensive fragrances (Unforgiveable and Polo Black) and have gotten some amazing compliments from women - both ladies that I know and complete strangers. One of my patients told me that my fragrance was the kind of smell that makes her want to put on some lingerie and say "come on, let's go." I'm a married man so I have to be cautious about eliciting those kinds of compliments!!!!

    Hmm, i have these 2 but never thought about layering them. I gotta try this. Did you equally spray both or one more than the other?

    YSL l'homme use to get me soo many compliments in '09-'11.. i walked into work one day sat at my station.. and the lady next to me said "oh you smell gooooooood,"

    I'm like you can smell? So i leaned in and let her smell the base of my neck and popped my shirt open.. She replies with "oooh you just made my nipples hard"

    Now granted she's candid, and I'm on that level with her, but still.. Way before i was into frags.

    These stories are funny. I just wore Aventus for a week...on train to work, at work, after work, in front of wife and kids..and it was strong batch...and I got nothing. Maybe they don't like pineapple..because even I got sick of it.

    Last female compliment I got was actually from TdH when I leaned over a coworkers desk to help on a project and was told I smelled good. That's it...sans nipple hardness.

    After 6 hours of spraying this perfume, I got a complement from a female coworker sitting around 1 meter from me.

    Female Coworker: Wow! You smell amazing! What is it ?

    Me : It is Creed Aventus, I bought it from..... It is quit expensive.

    Female Coworker: Thanks, I will visit ..... to test this wonderful fragrance. It is really good.

    The other female workers come to sniff me and agree that I smell great.


    It is 3 sprays of Aventus in the morning, now it is 2 PM.

    The hype has. Aventus gets compliments for some people, but if you read around the forums, you'll notice that many of us who own it get no compliments on it at all. Hanae Mori HM and Tauer's L'ADDM both get me tons of compliments. Aventus? Nothin'. I do enjoy Aventus very much though, but it's something I wear for me. When I need a date scent, I reach for something else.

    I think scents just work differently on people. Aventus on some people just smell really good (also depending on batch number), and on others its just ok (and some batches just suck.). Personally i've gotten massive amounts of compliments wearing Aventus. Next to that its probably bleu de chanel which im starting to hate when i wear it. Even tho i get lots of compliments the scent is starting to make me feel sick to my stomach when i wear it.....=( DHI is great too for compliments, though i noticed asian women don't seem to dig it that much, but white girls seem to love the scent. Just an observation =P

    Aventus is a weird one for me. On the one hand its a scent that always gets a really good reaction from my girlfriend, but of all the scents I own my brother always tells me it smells disgusting and actually requests i wash it off. But then he says the same of Jubilation XXV so what does he know?!

    In a way, I feel bad for Aventus, lol.
    It has become a legendary compliment-getter scent,
    I'm sure with good reason, but like others, I've worn it a lot (a good batch too)
    and never been complimented on it.

    I think it's an excellent scent, and I enjoy wearing for my own pleasure (like all of my frags)
    but PLEASE...don't buy it thinking it's going to be an automatic compliment getter or "panty dropper"
    because it may very well not. Sample it first, and if you like it, then buy it--because YOU like it.

    On a side note: I'm going to bring out the current formulation of Dior Homme Intense for a date tomorrow night.
    We'll see how it goes. I like it a lot, and think it's very close to the vintage version in quality.

    Ok, so a female client walked into my office earlier, saying "It smells really nice and sweet in here...almost like vanilla, or a sweet pastry...what is that?"

    Tobacco Vanille. Hahaha!

    I have received compliments from DHI and Aventus, but the most compliments I received (I don't have Aventus and DHI that long so it can be that they will outshine this one on the long run) is KAIAK PULSO by NATURA (Brazilian made perfume that I bought in Paris), it's a flanker from the famous fragrance (in Brazil at least) KAIAK. The original one is ok but nothing exceptional, but the flanker is just great, has AMAZING sillage and longevity. I never read one review about this one, only review of a NATURA perfume was from the original. I advise you all to have a sniff if you can find this one, perfect for spring and summer.

    I never really understand people who say they 'allways' receive compliments from people when they wear a certain cologne, that just doesn't exist imo. I think that the people they talk about are their mother or sisters :-). For me a real compliment only counts if you don't really know the other person. Remember also : if people on sites like this make it sound like everytime you put on a certain fragrance women come flocking to you ... they are paid by that company. Fragrances don't get you in those situations, it's only a personal preference or a tool to add value imo.

    I was at a gogo bar, and one of the 'dancers' who passed a few metres from me suddenly stopped, then started sniffing around. She kept sniffing through the guys around me (I'm of Indian extraction, and the general consensus I've seen people have is that Indians are smelly, so she initially discounted me as the source), before she finally realises it's me, then sits down to compliment my smell as amazing and ask about it in broken English. She'd never heard of Aventus, but I doubt she'd recognise even common designer frags.
