    Wore dolce and gabanna light blue for probably the first time in at least a year. I was reading some jardin d'amalfi reviews and some people say it smells like this to them. You know I didnt think so, but then when I tried it again, it does sorta a bit. Got a couple of compliments randomly on it to.

    Funny/awkward one of the day was at friends house playing with his dog, door opens friends gf walks in and is like "why does the dog smell good? Clayton must be here" lol

    Well if you're 12, then yes it probably is....and if the girls you're trying to attract is 12, then yes Aventus is probably a bit mature....Just an observation....Aventus to me is the bomb and gets compliments from MANY women young and old....You're just not putting enough on....

    Hate to say it, but by far my biggest compliment getter has been none other than:

    -One Million

    Sure its generic, loud, and only appropriate for clubbing. But girls just love it.
    Other honorable mentions go to:

    -Mont Blanc Individuale
    -Nautica Voyage
    -Cool Water
    -Versace Pour Homme
    -Thierry Mugler A*Men

    I was just at the grocery store a little bit ago and as I was checking out I was right next to a woman about upper 30's/lower 40's while we were bagging our groceries she suddenly started talking to herself quietly and I saw her look up towards me while I was putting my items in bags and I hear "Wouldn't you know..." under her breath... So I think I'll take that as a compliment..she was obviously so taken back by my fragrance..

    Fragrance- Aventus... Just bought this yesterday and already taken them down...

    Polo black, and one really stands out; some years ago I was at a family gathering at the in-laws and was about to leave when saying my good-byes I was giving the sister a hug and she lets out this primal moan grunt deeply inhales and gets flush then proclaims "you smell amazing!", prolonging the embrace in front of both of our significant others and she was obviously very turned on. I don't know what it is but black smells different on my skin than others I've smelled it on, it has become a perennial favourite of mine and a go to scent.

    Earlier today at a holiday dinner, I was the recipient of a rare compliment for the fragrance I was wearing from a person whom I didn't know. The individual said I smelled nice. The scent was Musc Tonkin. I was pleasantly surprised.

    Of course, lol. I didn't say my sister, I guess I could've been less vague but I figured when I said in-laws and 'the' it would be obvious to all except the oppositional.

    If there is one thing I have learned about most (again most) women is that they seem to prefer safer, more commercial designer scents. It would seem the more exotic it is the less they gravitate to it. This doesnt necessarily mean that you are doomed to wearing a boring fragrance to please your lady but it does pose a challenge when you dont want to smell like every other joe in the room. Of all the fragrances I have ever owned only two of them I could call absolute lady killers. Unfortunately they are also very commercial, popular and seem to be 50/50 split in the love and hate opinions about them. They are Acqua di Gio (older 99-01 years the new stuff is a true aquatic as it really is water in a bottle) and Bleu de Chanel. Any time I wore Acqua It was guaranteed that a woman was going to say something. And when they did they always knew exactly what I was wearing. WIth bleu de chanel I get more "wow, what is that?" comments. The only niche scent that garners any attention when I wear it is Aventus. Mind you I dont wear a whole lot of niche and when I do its usually a creed but most of them really dont get noticed. Aventus though does get it fair share of attention. But by far Acqua and Bleu are hands down the most complimented fragrances I have owned. I dont wear acqua any more. I tried essenza as that to me is the closest thing to the older formula of acqua di gio but there is something in it that bothers me.

    I agree with this.

    Designer = For Compliments

    Niche = For personal Adventure/Fun

    One could get a compliments wearing Niche (perhaps not as often as Designer), and it would be a win-win because the person is probably experiencing the scent for the first time. Instead of complimenting something her/she smelled numerous times prior.

    Agua de Loewe El... this one gets MAD compliments from both women and men.

    It's got the AdG vibe without being as harsh, but still potent.

    I agree, except, I'd change the wording a bit and say: Mainstream people prefer mainstream things. Fragrances, Beverages, Food, Clothing, Sports. Etc. That's why, as you noted, AdG and Bleu are going to get more compliments from most people than niche scents will. The secret to getting compliments from niche scents is to pick the right scent for the person you're hoping will like it. If somebody is reading this and thinking "I want everyone to think I smell great" or "I want women to think I smell great," those are generic statements, so you're better off wearing mainstream scents. If you have a specific person in mind - a date, perhaps? - use common sense and cater to that person's taste (even if it means making an educated guess).

    Curve is like my little mainstream secret. Wow does Curve get me compliments. I think it's hilarious, but it works every time. It's a safe people pleaser. I usually don't wear niche around people I want to impress until I know their tastes a bit. But once I have a feel for somebody's taste, I can usually wow them with a niche scent or a less mainstream designer they'll love.
    I have a 100ml Gucci Pour Homme 2003 that I'll swap for Reflection Man or De Bachmakov. PM me if interested.

    Shining moment of clarity there fellas.

    In keeping with the spirit of this thread, I've had wildly different luck in GF responses, depending on their personalities.

    One went ga-ga for Nautica Voyage, for example, while the current GF loves Coromandel on me. You can't get much more different than that. I don't think I've ever had a one size fits all fragrance where women are concerned.

But once I have a feel for somebody's taste, I can usually wow them with a niche scent or a less mainstream designer they'll love.

    The thing I find hard with niche though and dates is exactly as you say actually making that educated guess. Put it this way, If I know the person well enough to be able to make an educated guess as to what they will like from my niche line up I would probably be comfortable enought wearing whatever I wanted without fear of them rejecting me because they didnt like my cologne. Its that first impression that I find more difficult.

    My solution? Well unless Im looking for a one nighter (not so much these days) I wear whatever without caring too much. Because to me any woman worth her salt should be able to appreciate the fact that someone is trying to be an individual instead of wearing one million to every social event. If a girl will cast me to the side because she didnt like a particular scent then I simply look at it as a filter for shallow people who I dont want around anyways. Still though thats a date.

    When going to eat with family and friends I still want to smell good but Im not looking to turn heads at every turn. At those times its nice to have something like Bleu de chanel that I find more interesting than your average designer scent while still being firmly planted in the safe category. Sure I could spritz with some GIT or Original Vetiver but Im bound to get an irish spring or cool water comment, lol.

    as far as curve goes. Definitely safe. And admittedly I wore a ton of the original and soul for a few years in my early 20s. But now it simply is just so boring to me that I really cant even bring myself to spray it. I have to enjoy what I am wearing. I dont care if panties spontaneously combusted upon smelling the stuff. If its not keeping my interest It will ALWAYS get passed up. I have 20-30 paper weights right now that are a waste of some pretty good juice for that same reason. Too cheap to sell and too much of a waste to just throw away.

    Yeah, there's no such thing as cookie cutter people/personalities, far too many variables and preferences based on unpredictable life experiences and circumstances. Thus the term mainstream is incompetent and invalid in almost every case possible.

    Something mainstream today is tomorrow's throwback. Hipster in, hippie out, indie a mix and all listen to many of the same songs, drink the same black leaf tea and should use the back door for entry into any finer establishment.

    Great thread! I've been snooping on this forum for about a year now but this discussion compelled me to finally become a member.

    So far, I've only received compliments from an oddball... Byredo - Oud Immortel. These were from a couple of very attractive hostesses at a restaurant/bar (age probably mid-20s) on separate occasions, a lady friend with whom I shared a bed from time to time (late 20s), and a couple of random women in public. Each of them said something like, "you smell amazing!". Nice. I assume this is mostly because it's such an unusual scent compared to most mainstream fragrances and it is pleasant. I don't know... I guess it works for me.

    That said, this thread has inspired me to break out my old Bleu de Chanel bottle that has been gathering dust. The Byredo isn't something I want to wear during the hot Summer months.

    We'll see how it goes!

    Polo Black was my signature scent for a while. Got tons of compliments. I just got tired of it after a while, I rarely wear it now.

    My wife definitely prefers the niche type scents over designer. She can usually "blind-spot" the better scents, that is, without seeing the bottle or label, or knowing the designer. It's like she can smell luxury. That said, she loves Dior Homme and the original TDH.
