    Default Re: Which scent gets you the most female compliments?

    In summer my most complimented is DIOR HOMME SPORT.

    AVENTUS is surely a compliment getter as everybody knows.

    LOLITA LEMPICKA AU MASCULIN is unique and gets lots of compliments.

    Girls are dying for REFLECTION MAN.

    I got one of the best compliments from a 18 year old gorgeous girl when I was wearing GUCCI POUR HOMME II.

    But the king is always YOHJI HOMME...!!! This does not project much. It is kind a skin scent. But It is my most complimented fragrance.

    I am glad that YOHJI YAMAMOTO is re-launching in 2013.

    Height, weight, and rating on 1-10 beauty/ugly scale would also be nice. A compliment from an unattractive person is of less value than an attractive person obviously.

    Huh?! What are you on about? Of course different demographics have different tastes, that's a given. To even say anything else is just glorifying "every person is COMPLETELY different with NO TIES to anyone". Different scents obviously have hints that are more dominant in different age groups, just like ANYTHING else. You're more likely to see a grown man sip whiskey compared to a just turned 18 year old, aren't you? The same thing comes with fragrances. For example, as much as I like ADP Colonia it's not a scent I think would suit someone my age as it feels much more of an eldery or mid-age gentleman kind of scent. That's NOT the impression I want to give. Just like people that are in that age group probably aren't interested in scents that scream teenager.
    If I'd ONLY and ONLY wear fragrances for my own sake then what the hell am I even doing on this forum?! Fragrances to me are just like other things regarding your appearance. It signifies who you are just like most people would agree you wouldn't want to be found as a slouch regarding clothes.
    You can say that you only wear fragrances "for your own sake" as much as anyone else, but I don't believe that for a second. Because then you might as well start wearing the scent of your favourite hamburger or whatever, and who wants that?

    EDIT: In fact, why would people even post in this thread? Why would there be 89 pages full of fragrances that net the most amount of compliments from, yes you guessed it, GIRLS and WOMEN. Obviously people are interested in what the other GENDER thinks which in itself is a demographic. Come on, you can connect that together, right!? :EditEnd

    And where you got the height, weight and beauty rating from I don't even know as the only thing I asked for was the age demographic. YOU are the one who took that turn towards human categorizing, not Me. I sure as hell hope you're not much older than me, since you're the one who seems to lack basic understanding of things like this.

    Even better: post the age, more or less, of the person they got the compliment from (I tend to do this). And with that:

    M7. I've been wearing through a sample and I got a nice compliment from a woman in her early 30s.

    You can say that you only wear fragrances "for your own sake" as much as anyone else, but I don't believe that for a second.
    Sometimes I wear fragrance purely to enjoy the scent and the experience of wearing it. Rather than likening fragrances as clothing, it's more like cuisine or art. Maybe you're in the mood for a specific type of food or music, and likewise perhaps you want to smell a certain scent just to enjoy it.

    Sometimes I also wear fragrance to project a feeling, impression, or image of myself (in this case, the appearance analogy is apt). What I wear and why is a mix between that and simple enjoyment.

    However, I believe there are people who mostly or entirely wear fragrance purely to enjoy a scent. It's just like appreciating good music, a favorite movie or book, or eating delicious food.

    For these people, wearing a scent has nothing to do with projecting an image or attracting others. I also believe those people are not here posting on this compliments thread (or even on basenotes).

    So, you can believe what you want, but keep an open mind that not everyone is on BN for the reasons you are, and people are interested in fragrances for a variety of motivations. When people say "I wear fragrances for myself," perhaps they're telling the truth.

    I agree with most of what you say, and I probably overdid it earlier. Just got pretty irritated by that other guy going all extremist values or whatever.

    Of course you can wear scents purely for your own enjoyment, and likening it with food or art is probably better than clothes to a certain extent. Because after all, you don't go around with your food or art like you do with fragrances and clothes.

    I don't think anyone proper would wear a scent they don't enjoy themselves, so that it's a mix of the two is absolutely something I agree on.

    And sure, some probably ONLY wear it for themselves, but I think it's pretty safe to say those people are the rather the exception more than the rule to follow. And just like you say, this minority is probably not posting on forums like this, and even less likely in this thread.

    Oh I have an open mind, believe me. If I came off as anything else before that's my bad. And sure, as you say, people might mean it when they say it.

    However, the fact that simply asking for an age demographic in this type of thread resulted in that other guy going all extremist with it simply aggravated me, probably more than it should have. Plus the "taunting" answer this person later answered with didn't help. Can't believe the person is nearly twice my age. This whole thread is based on what OTHERS think, so of course I want to know who thinks what. That's what I wanted to tell with that, probably unnecessary, long post.
    So if that was unclear, which it probably was I realize now, I'm sorry

    Yes, an age report would be good. At present, compliments from older ladies do nothing for me. I care more about what young girl likes

    Nope. I just happened to have had questions pertaining to Creed. I said in my last post I would purchase Mont Blanc Individuel over Original Santal because it smells identical and is more friendly on the wallet.


    Creeds are harder to compare/ smell out in my area so I like to see what people think.

    What can I say? Chalk it up again for mighty AVENTUS! I wear so many different fragrances to meetings but as soon as I sit down yesterday with this Creed, I immediately heard, "Oh my! Don't we smell fantastic today!!"

    Massive compliment from one of my employees today. She walked into my office and told my secretary across the hall, "he sure smells good today. I could smell him all the way down the hall. That's a really nice scent".

    Do I even need to tell you what it was? The funny thing was, I only wore three sprays and was thinking to myself that I can barely smell it. I was really frustrated with it before I got the compliment.

    Yes, it's Aventus. It's just a tough one for the wearer to perceive all the time. Other people love it, though.

    I was wrapping up a very pleasant date and, as I was leaving, she squeezed me and said, " You've been smelling delicious all night! Do me a favor; If you ever empty that bottle of cologne, just give it to me so I can sniff it!" MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, you're making me a proud papa!

    Had some teen girls follow me around the supermarket a while back, was wearing Azzaro Chrome. Probably only had 2 or MAYBE 3 sprays on.

    I know what you're thinking, it's a coincidence, but they were about a foot away from my back, and I heard one whisper about it smelling like soap and asking her friend if she liked it (along those lines anyways) I turned around and they giggled and ran away....Maybe I look like Sloth from the Goonies and I haven't realised yet

    This may not even be a compliment, but it got their attention anyways :P

    Also, people should post how many sprays there whack on when they receive the compliment. Would be nice to know.

    As silly as it may be, I have probably received the most compliments on a popular A*Men clone (that will remain nameless), which I was only trying out before deciding whether to buy the real thing. Absolute honest truth!

    Recently, it's invariably been Creed's Aventus or Chanel's Coromandel.
