    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.

    Personally for me, it's been none other than YSL's la nuit de l'homme. Had so many compliments from it, nearly every time I wear it! At one point had a whole group of girls practically nuzzling my neck because I smelled "that good" apparently haha. However, just got Aventus, so it will be interesting to see it performs!

    "Oh you have quite the collection, don't you.."
    I'm like yea.. shyly lol..
    She picks up the Dior Homme Intense 50ml bottle
    I say, I'm sure you've smelled that one before, because I've worn it around you 2x or so
    She says "Yea I know, this was the perfume you had on the first night we met, and I smelled you i was like oooh the smells familiar because i worked at a perfumerie for 3 years, and then when I seen the bottle, I was like YEP that was it!"
    I replied with, i hope you like it..
    "I love it, it's my favorite"

    Win for me because DHI, is also my favorite lol.
    Current Top 5:
    1. DHI

    I wish I liked Aventus more. When I wear it I almost feel like I'm wearing it for everyone else's sake.

    Ive just been wearing Tom Ford - tobacco vanille everyday for the last 2 years. I live in Norway and you cant even get it here. I usually pick it up in London on business. Anyway I get a ridiculous amounts of comments on it. Especially when Im out or on a date. Ex Girlfriends are stil sending messages about it etc. Its become a bit of a joke with my friends now.

    Anyway I recently joined BN a few weeks back and have started to try new stuff. I jumped on the aventus train and started wearing that. Only one complement from a guy at work The girl Im seeing at the moment was like "yeah its ok but can you please switch back to the Tom Ford"

    aventus is like crack for me and I love it but without doubt Tom Ford - tobacco vanille is the bomb for comments.

    I have received compliments from my hairstylist, a flight attendant, a massage therapist, an SA at a department store that doesn't sell Creed Aventus....and all I can say is, this stuff is magic. I got another (yes another - I'm stocking up thought this stuff is so expensive - Z01 batch) and I'm set now for a few years.

    Before you all think that I believe that Aventus is the only fragrance I get complimented on, there are more.

    JPG Le Male - very good compliments
    Mugler A*Men - second behind Aventus, especially about 15 mins after the initial drydown
    Dior Homme Intense - really nice compliments when I wear it at night
    Dior Homme Sport Reformulated - worn sparingly (this stuff projects on me) I get some nice compliments on it
    Creed Millesime Imperial - worn sparingly (I don't know what the deal is with the bottle I got off Fragrancenet, but this stuff has nuclear projection/longevity on me) I get nice compliments on it

    This is why I can't wear Bleu de Chanel that regularly. I ignore the naysayers and purists who say Bleu is unoriginal. I've had some compliments when wearing it. I've met a lot of women who have told me that they love that fragrance. When I wear it, however, I can't get into it. I just don't feel good when I wear it. It doesn't make me sick or anything. It just doesn't feel 'right' for me, and I wish it would because it's a nice fragrance and I know I would get a lot of compliments wearing it, but just can't get excited about it.

    I am relatively new in fragrances, so i didn´t get tons of compliments, but my most complimented are Midnight In Paris, Patchouli Leaves and Magnetism For Men. A few compliments i got on PR 1 Million, Guerlain Homme L´Eau and Guerlain Homme Intense. A few comliments got: LIDGE (surprisingly not a big complimentgetter, but i hope it will change), Yellow Sea, Ehtefal, Heritage (1), Yves Saint Laurent Pour Homme Haute Concentration and Versace Eau Fraiche Man.

    I find that I get the most compliments from women when I wear fresh scents such as Bleu de Chanel, Dior Homme Sport, etc. Women tend to appreciate a clean, non-offensive fragrance on their man. It's just my opinion.

    Friend of me smelled la nuit on me other day.

    She said of all the scents she has smelled on me, and I regularly ask her, this is her favorite.

    Some other ones she smelled? Dhi, mi, aventus, viw(she did not like at all), spice bomb, pure malt, just to name a few.

    La nuit is definitely a compliment getter, it resembles d&g the one, but better performance.

    "You smell like sexual licorice"

    First female compliment with Lolita Lempicka au Masculin eau de Minuit. Quickly becoming my favourite, or equal favourite. I never got compliments ever with the original juice or the other flankers. I think this one has more of a manliness to it, not as sickly sweet.

    as a woman, i would say YES. girls have a more sensitive nose than men, so we don't like really strong fragrances.... that's why i like acqua di gio so much... yes, it's very common, but it's not strong and smells really nice!
