    For men who want to learn what fragrances attract women, there is a good post by acceptfacts early in this thread. It's good reading and a great starting point.

    It would be nice to get back to that kind of discussion with breakdowns of many fragrances grouped together.

    Would be interested in hearing how women react to Amouage Jubilation XXV? I am a total amateur, but I gather from this thread that women love masculine clean scents. If Aventus is masculine clean, APLS and Musc Ravageur are masculine dirty, then Jubilation is masculine refined to me, if that makes sense. However I'm not sure how it is perceived by the fairer sex.

    Original Santal. I've gotten more compliments on this than I have Aventus, personally.

    thank you for mentioning me...i was randomly going to post and somehow saw my name.

    Back to the modern classic - Versace Dreamer = for winter time/going out this gem is good from the first minute(dont listen to those that say that first 10 minutes is insufferable) gets constant responses and sensual inquiries....interestingly enough although still popular no female ever comes close to guessing the name.

    Creed Chez Bond - for a date(especially warmer weather) - a much more refined, sweeter, smoother version of Irish Tweed...females adore this and its great strength is its smoothness, you never have to worry about over applying.


    Black XS L'excess - a flanker to original XS, its a much fruitier version of the original, with the woods turned down and fruits turned up, it doesnt have a 'sports' flanker feel at all, however i do recommend layering it with something woodsy or spicy, to give it more kick.....still great for summer time.

    lightly put it gets a very strong, positive reaction....not for the teen/early twenties crowd....

    hmm, that puts me in a predicament, since I am 25 so just exiting the early twenties crowd. As much as I enjoy it, I equally enjoy leaving a good impression on people around me (who are usually my age)...

    heck I'll still wear it though

    Since it's Valentine's Day I wanted to wear a rose scent. Got an unsolicited compliment for Portrait of a Lady. First time wearing this and used only 1 spray!

    I'm just guessing as I work my way through a large sample, but... It's really going to depend on the woman. In my experience, younger women and/or more modern women tend to like the playful stuff such as Hanae Mori H.M. or the sweet drydown of an amber scent like Ambre Sultan or L'ADDM. On the other hand, older women and/or more traditional or conservative women tend to prefer more masculine scents on a man, such as Gucci Pour Homme (2003) or even Fahrenheit. I'm guessing JXXV falls into the later group, but that's just a guess. Obviously, every woman is unique, so the best you can do is make an educated guess based on her personality and style, and even then, it's still just a guess.

    How's that for being not helpful at all? Grin. Sorry!

    UPDATE: Jubilation XXV was a strike out for me in terms of compliments, etc. I enjoy the scent, but the reactions I got were meh at best. L'ADDM, on the other hand, continues to be a big hit.

    I've had some nice feedback on Dior Homme (new formulation) lately. Usually my managers (all female) just say I smell good with other fragrances but I wore DH on Tuesday and Thursday and they went nuts.

    Sorry just have to add yet another aventus story. This stuff works all day everyday for me, time and time again. wore 3 sprays today, was at a coffeeshop just doing work, a couple of girls walked past me, stopped, and said, wow, someone smells REAALLY good around here. LoL. I'd normally make eye contact and etc etc, but i was doing work and didn't want the distraction, haha.

    I have never had anything positive said when wearing Aventus, yesterday I got told it smelt like a pencil case.

    I'm by no means a frag expert. But I've noticed the ones that have gotten me the "You smell SO good" comments from the female contingent are definitely the designer stuff. Could be the familiarity of the stylistic components, or it could be that the designers stick to the some basic "middle ground" rather than pushing the envelope (I could be completely talking out of my a&&, as again, I'm no expert).

    In no particular order, unsolicited comments have been for Azzaro Chrome (multiple), Obsession (going back about 7 years), VS Very Sexy for Him II, Curve, and lately, Ferragamo Black. Obviously nothing high end on this list.

    I've sampled the Creed stuff, GIT and Aventus. Nice stuff, but hasn't garnered any compliments. Not that they won't, but just hasn't happened.

    Two of my current favorites, Varvatos orginal and Varvatos Artisan, are fantastic, to me. But neither have elicited the "Wow" stuff like the list above.

    MC6576: Varvatos cologne is great I feel like it is very underappreciated and doesnt get the recognition it deserves... You should definately check out Varvatos Vintage.. Probably my fav between the two I need to check out Artisan still

    Hanae Mori !!! Went to a house party last night and this girl was comparing My friends cologne to my cologne and she said my friend smelled like clean laundry and said i smelled like sex lol she couldnt stop sniffing me - HM GO BUY IT

    mortl: Yes, Varvatos Vintage is great stuff. I just don't like wearing anything with a tobacco note for some reason. Love smelling the Vintage, just not on me, if that makes any sense...And yeah, definitely check out Artisan. Actually I'm really surprised it hasn't garnered any female comments, because as you mentioned in your story, many women love "clean" scents, and Artisan is clean and "soapy". I love it as an everyday frag.

    le male.

    generally, i find that women think it's borderline feminine on a guy, but they still like a lot.

    I would have to say that I've been complimented mostly whilst wearing Hermes Un Jardin Apres La Mousson Eau De Toilette. I would recommend it, although a little pricey at times!

    Lynx/Axe Dark Temptation.

    Seriously. Its in my gym bag and its without doubt the most commented on.

    Kind of proves that the majority have very unrefined tastes. Or that the fat girl inside the women in the gym are craving chocolate.
