    What a day for fragrance! I sprayed Royal Oud at about 8am this morning. Around 2pm I got a compliment off a friend of a friend. That made my day right there, as I've always loved Royal Oud and it was nice it got credit.

    Then at 11pm I got two more compliments off of two more female friends! Both totally out of the blue! One day, 3 female compliments. Royal Oud storms into the lead for me. Aventus was top with 2 male complements, but now Royal Oud has changed everything!

    I am new to Creed, as in still in the sampling stage, but I will say that the longer my GIT was on yesterday, the better it got.

    I will have to say, after not only being skeptical of everything I hear about the scent and wondering if it would even be anything I would tolerate, after giving it a couple days of realistic sampling/testing, I find it tremblingly intoxicating in a gentle, not in your face kind of way.

    Haven't given it a thorough opportunity for attention by others that much yet, but I can say confidently by now that I am quickly becoming a fan for its wearability and uniqueness alone. Some may say there are a few close in notes, but I can't believe anything is close enough to be considered.

    Most likely Dior Homme Intense. Had a few compliments on Gucci Guilty and Prada Luna Rossa.

    My 19 year old nephew owns 60 scents - all of which I gave him as presents over the years..
    He has only ever bought two bottles himself, and those were to replace the one bottle I gave him which he had nearly used up. That bottle of scent overwhelmingly got him, and still gets him, more compliments from females of his age than anything else he owns.
    The amazing scent in question is Paris Hilton For Men.

    And for the sake of perspective, he does own high end scents like Green Irish Tweed.

    From doing quite a bit of research myself on this very topic, the general consensus it seems is that Kristiansand New York is about as close as you can get to By Man.

    I very rarely receive compliments on what I wear, but today that changed. I purchased yesterday, and wore today for the first time, Creed's Windsor. When in a cosmetic doctor's office three attractive, young women commented on my fragrance selection. The first said, "who smells wonderful", the second said, "can I stand near you?", and the third said, "I want to eat you up, what is it that you're wearing?" The three were friends in for a day of beauty, and they certainly made my day. So far, Windsor is a successful compliment getter with the ladies.

    Wow, Windsor? That's no surprise.

    I think I'm just gonna start wearing old spice and paying women $5 for a compliment.

    Dior Homme Intense

    It's not my favourite and I'm not even sure if I like it. But others love it. Apparently it's very sexy

    Being a moderately obese, married, middle aged, man who generally wears Cologne for his own pleasure, rather than to elicit compliments from the fairer sex, I get few if any compliments at all.
    That being said, today, while waiting for my spouse to do her browsing in Lingerie. I was lured over to the Ladies perfume section by a very attractive, middleaged woman. She thrust into my hand, a sample, on cardboard, of Mugler's Alien Absolue Essence. I was immediately hit with childhood memories of Pepsin Gum and WintoGreen Lifesavers and a most delicious Gourmet Vanilla that formed the base of a perfume. Long ago, this same rich Vanilla Base was worn by my first boyhood attraction, my Aunt. I said to the woman, "That is so delicious I could eat it! She was cheeky and like a teenager spritzed a few squirts at me. I walked around for the rest of the afternoon in a boyhood daze. My spouse did not think much of it, however, throughout the rest of the day, I had two woman, my age, compliment me on this strange, mysterious fragrance. I know that I shall return again to explore the wonderful world of Woman's Perfume, soon.

    I'd have to say Van Cleef & Arpels Midnight in Paris is my most complimented on fragrance.

    I got my first compliment from a stranger in years yesterday and it was while I was wearing the very nice YSL L'Homme . She basically emphasised how lovely I smelled and seemed really into it and asked me to tell her what it was. Other than that I have got a few compliments on Hugo by Hugo Boss.

    Chanel Egoiste (not platinum), give it at least a few hours to dry down, and then spray a full amount of FCUK Friction For Him.

Give it a go if you already own Egoiste, Friction is pretty cheap online these days!

    Others that get a lot compliments, with the highest compliment-getters at the top of my list:
    Mont Blanc Legend
    YSL RIve Gauche Men
    Herrera Men
    Mugler Cologne
    Azzaro Chrome
    Kenneth Cole Black

    Thanks for this. I now bought a bottle of Friction, as I have Egoïste already. Excited to see how these two will work out together.

    Bought YSL Kouros a few years ago, hated it from the start. Tried to wear it a few times, just couldn't get past the opening musky smell despite being told by my (ex) gf how nice it was. Kouros is strong stuff - you better know what you are doing when you apply it. Cut to a month ago - I see that bottle sitting on the back of the shelf and I decided to give it another try. Sprayed on very lightly from a distance, and then layered one very light shot of Kiel's Original musk over it to sweeten things up a bit. Met a very sweet 25 year old woman that very night and we've been seeing each other ever since, she just loves this stuff. I've also noticed more attention from other gals as well. The Keil's is good juice as well but I give credit to the Kouros. If you are willing to go through the effort of wearing it and apply it properly, Kouros is pure seduction juice! Just be prepared to not personally like it.

    One thing I've learned is that what you like and what a woman will like are two very different things. There's also quit a difference between getting a compliment and seducing so chose your weapon carefully. I also own a bottle of Aventus which I think smells good but gets me nowhere, I regret buying it.

    My runners up are as follows: Chanel Anteus (VERY close second), Ungaro III, 21 Constume National, L'Instant de Guerlain (not long lasting however).

    Thanks, I'll let my nephew know.

    I think that me, and now you, have been the only ones here with something good to say about Just Me.
    It was about four years ago that a niche snob accused me of being gay for liking it.
    Though I am actually more fond of 12 sprays of Paris Hilton Heir.

    Earlier this evening at a holiday party I got a rare compliment from my SOTE - Parfum de Sévigné No. 3. A female guest whom I did not know said I smelled "divine". It took me by complete surprise as I almost never get compliments.

    Damn near everything I've ever worn, but I don't judge a fragrance by it, and I sure as hell wouldn't feel the need to get online and tell people about it. Some kind of narcissism. Men have really gone down the crapper. Damn right. It's all in good fun, but if you don't think you have anything more to contribute than this crap, if you want to perpetuate it, then you should move on to something that gives you better focus.

    If I was a woman and saw this thread I'd think men were terminally lame and I'd probably become a lesbian in fifteen seconds.

    You're online talking about fragrances though?
    It's a common interest. People like to gauge the likeability factor as perceived by others, men or women. Fragrances invade other people's space after all. It's no different to any other online community really. I lift weights for 'aesthetics' and am pretty fit also but it's nice when others notice-- even though that is not the end goal. I don't think that's shallow.
