    Yeah I've worn TdH pretty hard core for the last 2 years now and I still am finding myself catching new things I love about it. Maybe the Iso Super E does well with me but it works. London was my wedding/honeymoon scent in the Fall of 2006 so we both love the smell and the memories come back. I think my original bottle back them had much more power than the bottle I have now.

    Got stopped multiple times with aventus again. Ive seriously probably worn aventus maybe 20 times ever if that. And only ONCE maybe did some not stop me to ask what I was wearing and told me how good I smelled.

    I guess just for general since I didnt post it last time. I get a lot of compliments on allure sport and bleu de channel as well. I think its the same thing for aventus, I dont think any of these 3 smell that great. But they all smell so clean its like almost impossible for it to smell bad or to rub someone the wrong way.

    For something I dont see posted, I get a lot of compliments on guess seductive when I wear it.


    For stuff that supposedly is popular but I barely ever get compliments on.. Pure malt, pure havane, LIDGE(actually though I dont really care for this either to be honest). And ive never gotten one random person come up to me sorta compliment EVER on new harlem. Go figure...

    okay guys, im running low on funds and i need to get a bottle of silver mountain water. but i'm figuring that i could get a sugar mama help me finance that purchase.

    what are some fragrances that are good for attracting milfs and cougars? and where do i meet women around the age of 35 to 50 who have a lot of disposable money?

    my wife jokes that Portrait of a Lady attracts old women because of the rose scent (per my wife, old women love rose). She says this because an older lady gave me an unsolicited compliment on wearing POAL a few weeks ago.

    Will really need a sugar mama first to afford POAL though.

    I don't own OS, although I have sampled it. I do however own Indivduel by Mont Blanc and the two do smell very similar.

    Would be interested to know in what setting you wear OS. I wore Individuel to work a few times and it just didn't feel right and for a night out fragrance, it wasn't 'loud' enough, nor it do well in terms of longevity.

    I really hope you're just trolling again with an attempt to be funny, because that was tasteless. You could have just asked "What fragrances are better for attracting women age 35 to 50?" Instead, you added that your goal is to use a woman for her money.

    If you NEED a fragrance badly enough that you intend to use a complete stranger in order to get it, trust me when I say you need help, not fragrance. And I don't mean help attracting a woman to use for her money. Sheesh man.

    I realize that, but it's still scumbaggish, and I think it would reflect poorly on us if we cheered on that sort of thing.

    I know what you mean...but I think having some "real talk" on here is good. Sometimes I respect the caveman perspective to be honest. It might not be PC, but it's still counts for something. Just like youtube reviewers, I dont want to *just* white collar and metrosexual dudes who are similar to me reviewing fragrances. I enjoy hearing the perspective of guys like Al from Street Scents or mymickers who seem like blue collar type dudes. Thats why NoirDrakkar and that Monkey screen name guy (can't remember his name, used to post on here) add to the variety of views, even if what they post sometimes makes us cringe

So women like me, we silently appreciate aha.
    I get your point, yet I'm under the opossite impression: most of women might be inducing dudes to believe popular and awful scents smell just great on them (bf or one night stands, don't know and don't care), otherwise to explain how on earth AdG, 1M and many more that we girls know no chick likes is mission impossible. And those fumes are more on the die hard side, IMO.
    My sarcasm is so evolved it sounds like sincerity.

    I have personally gotten compliments with ADG and 1 Million from girls who have not smelt them before when I was in Asia. I have not gotten any compliments with Encre Noire or Fahrenheit. Rather than saying women compliment popular scents, maybe it is because some scents are liked by women that they became popular. I am sure the houses did their market research before they release a fragrance.

    BTW, when are we going to get another update on the tally? Thank you

    It's probably a biased compliment as we have been going out now for a while, but she said "which one is this? you smell delicious" at the weekend whilst wearing none other than Aventus.

    Finally had a breakthrough with Aventus. Sick with tonsilitis, I wore it to the doctors. On the way home I stopped into the pharmacy to collect my prescription. The young female pharmacist's assistant behind the counter sort of double-taked and stammered when I handed her my medical information, and gave me quite a smile when I took a seat near where she was working while waiting for my pills.

    It had to be the juice, I looked like the walking dead.

    I had a similar experience at a CVS Pharmacy two years ago while wearing Aventus. Young cashier just loved it.

    Add me to that list. About two years ago a pharmacist at my local A&P asked what I had on, and wrote it down for her husband. It never fails that's for sure.

    I've only worn it 3 times but I got a compliment wearing Aventus today, buying a suit and the girl said "I love the cologne you have on"

    I think getting compliments has a lot to do with being close to the person and not just walking past + being in a situation which you're already talking.

    So whilst many strangers might think you smell nice, don't feel bad if you're not getting told that you do

    I would probably say I get at least 2 or 3 unsolicited compliments a week, and so far only when I have been wearing these ones from my collection. But I also wore ADG for a long time before I started buying others much more recently. This is my list in order of number of compliments:

    ADG: Consistent compliment getter, well liked by most people it seems. Once before a basketball game I had sprayed this about an hour prior and I went and sat next to a girl, who proceeded to rave about how good I smelled and made several other people around my smell my chest. An added bonus was that they were all attractive girls
    Chrome Legend: Possibly my best compliment for a fragrance. I sprayed this on shortly after I bought it and then a few friends showed up. One guy proceeded to go on about how good it smelled, he bought it and now wears it every day. (Which I take him wearing it as a compliment as well, but it also means I don't wear it as often so we don't smell the same ) Also a few just "You smell good" type compliments from guys and girls, but still good for how much I paid for this one.
    La Nuit: Received one compliment from a gay male relative which, in my book I'm counting as a female complement
    The One: I don't know how much of a compliment was directed specifically at this fragrance. But at practice today, shortly after I had sprayed this on, a teammate apparently smelled me and complained about how I always smell so good and how he wished he could smell as good as me! Also the reason I got my first fragrance (ADG) to start with was cause he had it, and I wanted to smell as good as him (And I didn't know anything about fragrances at the time so I bought the exact fragrance he had haha), so that is kind of ironic that he was the one to say this. I haven't gotten a compliment from a female but I haven't worn it much yet either.

    I'm pretty new, these compliments are all in the last month and half or two months. I suspect there will be more on other fragrances that I have only recently gotten, or haven't worn much being that I was at 1 fragrance just two months ago. I haven't really been able to slow down and get to know them which is what I plan on doing for the next few months!

    Also as a side note, I probably receive more compliments than people who aren't in high school because I am from a high school where 90% of males range from wearing axe body spray, to bathing in axe multiple times a day, so smelling anything else is usually refreshing and it probably means that compliments are more flowing when something else is smelled.

    Default Re: Which scent get's you the most female complime

    Twice, this week, I have received compliments on a particular fragrance.

    First:
    I went to the mall a Monday to spend a gift card my wife had got for me for my birthday. I went to Fossil, bought a few things, and left. After I got home I tried on one of the items, and it was the wrong size. Tuesday, I went back to Fossil to exchange the item. As I was looking for my size, one of the workers approached me. "This might sound a little weird," she said, "but what kind of cologne were you wearing last night when you came in?" With a smile I replied, "It's called Aventus by Creed." She told me she wanted ask me the night before, and it was a miracle that I came back in.

    Second:
    Today I went to a hair salon to look for some new hair product. One of the stylist approached me, and asked if she could help me find anything. To make it short, they didn't have what i was looking for, but the girl said, "So..what kind of cologne are you wearing?'' I told her it was Aventus by Creed. "Well, she said, "that's like my new favorite fragrance now. It smells divine."

    Me too, salon girl. It's my favorite fragrance too.

    A couple weeks ago, someone at work complimented me on NY Oud. She's into fragrance, and said that it smells mysterious and different.

    Complimented on Musc Ravageur the other day while shopping.

    I got the most enthusiastic, and unexpected compliment I've ever received
    from a fragrance earlier this afternoon...guess what, it was AVENTUS...

    I went into a local convenience store to buy a 12 pack of beer.
    I couldn't have been closer than 6 to 8 feet from the two female cashiers
    in the store when I first walked in. I get my beer, walk up to the counter,
    and I hear the two girls--in their early 20's and quite attractive--whispering
    to each other, I think nothing of it. I set my beer on the counter, and the
    young blonde who is running the cash register says "you smell so good" and
    is smiling, their is a slight pause, and I suddenly realize she's not talking
    to her co-worker (a tall, slim brunette). I ask her, "you mean me?"
    She says, "Yeah!" and laughs a little, her co-worker smiles a little shyly...

    I say, "wow, thanks! I must have sprayed too much if you can smell me this far
    away."

    She says, "No, you smell really good."

    For reference, I'm 34 years old. I am decently attractive at best, I'm no George Clooney.
    These girls were really "hot", I don't know any other way to put it. I was honestly taken aback
    by how much they liked the way I smelled.

    For the record, I had applied the Aventus about 5 hours before I got this compliment.
    I did 5 sprays: 2 to the chest, 1 to the back of the neck, and 1 to each forearm.
    It was from a decant I bought in a split from Heperd here on basenotes over a year ago.
    I've worn that decant--sporadically--for the past year and never received a compliment on it.
    But, I love the smell of Aventus on myself. And, bottom line, that's why I wear a fragrance,
    I want to smell it, and like it on myself first and foremost. But, this compliment today really blew
    me away, if I wasn't so shy, I am pretty sure I could have gotten either one of these girls' phone
    numbers...

    Aventus is incredible. I love it. Believe the hype. I wear it because I love it though.
