    I'm surprised Green Irish Tweed received the second most compliments, however.

    While the information is interesting it by no means can be relied on as a guide. That is more indicitive of what is popular with basenoters.

    Of course. But if the whole purpose of this nearly 100 page thread is to see which fragrances yield compliments for specific users, then I definitely think aggregated information from such a huge sample size serves at least some purpose, flawed though it may be.

    Huge compliments x 3 today by my lady for Virgin Island Water. Unsolicited. Just one spray.

    This one is great in the summer and only the summer IMO.

    Well again that list isnt so much a list of most complimented fragrances. It really is more of a what is popular with basenoters. GIT is a popular fragrance on this forum. Therefore it will get more wearings and more exposure than many of the other mainstream designer scents on the list. That is why your seeing it in the top 5. You cant have a "what should be my first niche purchase" thread without it at least being mentioned if not heavily recommended. If you were to ask this same question on A&F forum fierce would be in the top 5 just because how many fans of that brand wear it.

    Not really. Yes these people are the ones giving the compliment but that doesnt mean they even know what the scent is. It just means they find what they have encountered to be appealing. Not that they wear it or that it would be popular in their circle of friends. Getting a compliment on a fragrance is highly dependent on the frequency of wear. If you only wear Aventus once every other month or so you may never receive a compliment. Hell you may get one every time you wear it but if you wear bleu de chanel 3-4 times a week and its your signature scent you may only get complimented on it twice a month but it all ready places higher than aventus because it gets more exposure. Lets face it most basenoters come into contact with the general public. And to get a compliment in public on your fragrance you have to wear it. Having GIT place high on a list compiled from this site shows that it is popular here. Not with those smelling it on them. And actually its not even indicative of what is popular on the forum but rather what is popular with those who actually chose to participate in this thread.

    Bond No 9 Scent of Peace for him did it again.............. This time with my 2 mother in laws (2 beautiful women I must say, another whole story). I went in a family-visiting trip Yesterday with my wife. After arriving at my first MIL's house, she just screamed about that "incredible and sexy" smell coming from me. Then she asked me the exact name of the fragrance, noted and now will buy it for her man. THen I left and went to the second MIL's house. Right after she hugged me, she just holed me there for about an extra minute to just keep smelling me, and said "you have to be the best smelling man in the world".

    After all of these reactions I have gotten with this scent (including my wife), there must be something this fragrance has that women seem to appreciate and get excited about (at least, puertorican women that I interact with). It basically jumped into my most complieted fragrance spot, when taking in consideration 100% of the time I have used this I have gotten a compliment, which no other fragrance had achieved, not by a long shot.

    Accordingly, I think I will be using the fragrance when I need a safe scent that will be liked by women around me.

    Got my first Encre Noire Sport compliment today at a client meeting. "Wow, you smell great today!" always has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

    I received more "you smell sooooooo good" style compliments from girls/women back when I didn't wear any mens fragrance at all and only wore Old Spice Pure Sport deodorant. It happened often.

    sigh....Aventus. It's not my personal favorite scent but it does get you compliments from both men and women. Someone actually purchased this (not a frag head himself) because he loved it so much...I didn't even have to say anything other than tell him what it was. Whether you dis on this fragrance it simply does it.

    I got a big compliment from a CVS Pharmacy cashier about two weeks ago. I had applied Aventus about 10 hours earlier and had told my wife that I was disappointed in its lasting power about an hour earlier. Then boom...

    I had walked away from the cashier when she asked my wife if either my sons or I had cologne on and that she liked it. I walked back over to her and leaned in and she confirmed that it was me. Same thing happened about two years ago at a different pharmacy (got a compliment from a cashier on Aventus). So while I can barely smell it, obviously others can for hours.

    Say what you want about Creed, for me Aventus and GIT are the compliment kings. Aventus in particular draws compliments from complete strangers.

    Xeryus Rouge and Dunhill Desire continue being my number one compliment getters. Curiously, both bottles are red.
    The Dreamer from Versace: what does this scent have that is so alluring and enticing towards the opposite sex ?

    My wife gave me a thumbs up for.....

    Eau Radieuse (Humiecki & Graef).
    "Smells like a Harvest Festival - bread and vegetables"

    That's the greatest fragrance compliment she has given in a long while.

    Work that one out!

    Out of all my colognes, including Dior Intense, Bleu De Chanel, A*Men, and even a bottle of Aventus, my girlfriend loves the most out of all the rest............Perry Ellis Aqua.
