    How would a scientific study on fragrance compliments work exactly? Wouldn't it entail people wearing a fragrance out in the real world, and seeing if it garners compliments or not? Like exactly the whole point of this thread?

    I think that a scientific study (although it's uncertain who might be found to fund it as funding is certainly an issue over here) would work more accurately than this thread as there would be controls & stuff, whilst this thread is just sort of lighthearted fun combined with bragging type stuff.
    Although it's quite possible that I'm just confused again...

    Right I'm off up the wooden hills to Bedfordshire but let me leave you with a thought :




    The posters who get so excited about Aventus are also the same kind of people who get so excited about a female compliment they would post about it on a public forum ???

    Of a morning I always wear 'Spanish Leather Cologne' by Geo. F. Trumper.

    Trumper is an 'updated' old-fashioned Barber in Curzon Street, Mayfair, London who have been around for a century or two.

    Wherever I go women of all ages either smile at me or engage me in conversation as to the 'wonderful' fragrance I am wearing.

    It used to be said that the best way to enter into conversation with strangers was to have a beautiful dog, I am not so sure about this anymore!

    I'm wearing LIDGE to work today. I received three compliments so far. It's been over 6 hours since I applied it. It never fails to get compliments, every time!

    Try walking down a road with three Samoyeds - that generates spontaneous smiles & endless cuddle-stops

    I wore LIDGE this week and my wife really liked it. LIDGE is a smooth operator, for sure. I may wear it today.

    I work at a university. So if you give me funding and send me fragrances, I can certainly do it. It's actually pretty easy. Just spray each fragrance on cards and have a large representative sample of female participants rate the smell of each card from 1 to 10. And viola! We know which fragrance would be the real king of compliment getter.

    Thanks for the offer - but even scientific results might not convince everyone here ;)

    Aventus is nice but I've gotten more male compliments on it than female. I have a relative who wears Aventus as do I, and I think it smells nice. But that's it, just nice. It's not a godly scent like some make it out to be.

    Jean Paul Gaultier le male -sexy! Makes me think of sex
    Givenchy Pi

    But nothing sexier to a woman than a males clean underarm scent!! Seriously! As a female that's the real panty dropper for me. Men don't wear strong deodorants

    Edit* thought this was the Sex in a bottle thread for some reason. I don't get compliments on these but I def give em on them.

    i agree and same here .
    its overly hyped , people think they are special cos they are able to afford the retarded pricetag they feel they need to brag about how they think its so good that they go on an advertising campaign . Ever noticed how on fragrantica there is no listed frags of what it reminds them of , theres some fanatic troll on there that isnt allowing anyone to mention what it reminds them of lol classic brain dead like behavior .

    What a load of old horse poo. There are literally hundreds of fragrances at a similar price or more expensive that don't get recognition Aventus does.

    Aventus is talked about so much simply because a hell of a lot of people love it! Just accept that and get over it for crying out loud.

    If you're not a fan, good for you. Move on and buy/wear something you do love.

    Actually, Zodiak really nailed it. It's fine if you don't like something, but it's wrong to assume something negative about people who do enjoy it. I happen to enjoy Aventus very much, though it isn't one of my most complimented scents. That's A-OK with me. I wear it for myself (and when I'm wearing something for someone else, such as on a date, I usually go for GphII or Hanae Mori HM).

    Nobody is 'judged' on post count - we have a set of rules and opinions on Aventus 'hype' are as valid as opinions on Aventus 'love' - provided they don't attack other members or turn into rants.

    My opinion on the whole A subject has been self-censored.....
