    Any others you guys have worn that did the same things?
    Is that from a Creed bottle? 4 or 5 sprays from a Creed sprayer is like 8 to 15 from most other sprayers. Creed sprayers are crazy strong and put out a ton of juice. So, yeah, if you wear 8 to 15 sprays of something, you're going to get noticed.

    Really??? To me, It's more of a mist than a spray though....5 mists to me is equivalent to perhaps 3 spray blasts from Sycomore.....it's relatively weak as a sprayer to me....

    Spray a sheet of paper and see how wet it gets. Creed sprayers put out a ton of juice. I only wear 2 sprays from a Creed, yet my Creed bottles are emptying faster than scents I wear more sprays of and wear more often. It's nuts.

    hmmmm.....I swear my sprayer is more like a vaporizer, but I will check it out...I do 3-4 sprays on just about everything except for perhaps Puredistance M or something more potent and opulent...

    I know this feeling. Usually it takes a while to notice a decrease in juice level of any of my fragrances, but the Creeds go down FAST. If most average sprayers put out 1ml per ~10-12 sprays, I'd say Creeds do it in ~6.

    So could it be that people get so many compliments from Creed fragrances only because they get noticed more easily by spraying so much volume? Especially Aventus, which is very potent to begin with.
    Wear fragrance for yourself!

    Like Dior Leather Oud? Wear it to the church, to job interview, to meet your future father in law! WEAR WHAT YOU LIKE!

    No one will compliment you if you smell like crap just because you sprayed more volume of crap on you. A lot of creed fragrances smell good period.

    MFK Lumiere Noire Homme. 2 compliments yesterday, on a cool Spring day. Very typical response. Never actually not been complimented when wearing it.

    I've never gotten any compliments wearing Creed although I've gotten plenty wearing fragrances from other houses. And guess what, I don't use the Creed sprayer, all my Creeds are decants, maybe that's why.

    For the people wondering why women enjoy Curve. In the words of Oscar Wilde, "Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood."

    I think Creeds smell good and are compliment worthy on their own merits, but I do think their strong sprays should not be discounted as a factor. I am a 2-3 spray guy and with my Creeds that's about 4-5 sprays of other brands.

    I cannot comprehend the amount of compliments I get when wearing Aventus from both men and women. I work in the hospital setting and within 8 hours, I had gotten 7 compliments (female nurses from late 20's to mid 30's) and 5 of them even grabbed a piece of paper to write down the name of the scent. I suffer from "olfactory fatigue" from this scent I guess. I cannot smell the darn thing after 45 minutes of application unless I'm sniffing my wrists like a mad man. I applied Aventus at about 2PM. Around 1030PM (exactly 8+ hours) a fellow nurse (super hot) that walked by me texted me a bit later on, "you smell really, REALLY, REALLLLLY damn good!" (verbatim). I tried, but for the life of me could not smell anything on me. Go figure...

    My first 1 OZ bottle of Aventus got me tons of compliments. My newer 2.5 has had a few, but not near as many. Batch differences? Maybe.

    Here we have it guys, Aventus is the number 1 fragrance to get nurses! Lol

    I haven't worn my sample of it many times, but I too think it's a darn good one! It even reminds me a lot of a fragrance by O Boticário (brazilian fragrance company) called Connexion:
    http://www.boticario.com.br/Connexio...-100ml-10182/p

    Any other brazilians feel the same?
    Of course Aventus has higher quality and smells better too, IMHO. But if I'm on a budget I'll go with Connexion without a doubt.

    I just think that the novelty of the basic format is starting to wear off a bit.

    Could be. To field test a little, I wore it to church this morning where I knew I'd come into close contact with many, many people. Zippo.

    Yeah I wouldnt gauge its effectiveness like that. People close to you could've been wow'd regardless. There have been many times where I've been wow'd by someone's fragrance and I debate whether I should ask about it -- especially when I'm on the go.
