She shrugged it off saying she would pay anything to have her boyfriend smell like that.

    Creed MI is by far my most complemented as of late. Six months ago's champion was probably Geir, closely followed by Fluid Man, Lanvin l'Homme and Mediterraneum.

    The number one attention-getter over the past month has been Creed's Millesime Imperial.

    It's a bit crazy, actually - and I happen to be wearing it today. Luckily, there are no women around.

    How is "Millesime Imperial" pronounced?

    Millesime Imperial did NOTHING on my skin. I've owned it at least 4 times. Finally learned my lesson. Skin chemistry, I guess. Terre d'Hermes, on the other hand...

    In order, the most compliments I get from the ladies are:

    BY (Dolce & Gabbanna) -- but now discontinued!

    Black by Tom Ford

    Bois du Portugal

    Absolutely "By" by Dolce Gabbana. It is discontinued as many of us complaint. And all my attempts to reach D&G bros in order to ask for the possibility of a relaunch have been useless unfortunately

    I recently bought Cannabis Santal by Fresh and I have received a disproportionately large amount of compliments on it. In fact, the reason I bought it is because I went to a party and smelled this weird herbal, mossy, sweet aroma surrounding one of the people there and it was Cannabis Santal and I knew I had to have it. I think the sillage is less sweet than the experience of actually wearing it onesself.

    True Story.....Cannabis Santal does seem so sweet, almost sugar like on your skin while smelling vastly different on others.....big time compliment getter.

    Another one that always garners attention and compliments(and probably smells less sweet in the air than on my skin) is Paco Rabanne Black XS........strawberry and citrus detonated in an atom bomb.......if you ever thought that fruity/sweet scent can not last and give mutinous type of sillage then you have never tried Black XS....but that super sweetness can get sickly in the beginning......I usually layer it with straight citrus to tone down the strawberry.
    CDG 3 (The one you CAN'T find anywhere) for trade.
    Full 4 oz Bottle of Silver Mountain Water(95% full) for trade(purchased at Nordstrom not online). PM me for details.

    I love Black XS, too! It is sweet but never feels syrupy sweet to me, which I like. And almost every time I wear it someone notices it. I think it's different enough to garner attention, while also being accessible to the common nose. People know what fruit smells like, but dark and sexy and on a man? Attention grabbing.

    I've been making my Sables-wearing husband try some different frags (though I agree Sables is perfect on him). Yesterday, I dabbed him with Chergui on one side, and Fumerie Turque on the other so he could choose. He wasn't actually crazy about either, but when he got in his workplace elevator he was surrounded by five women, who all started avidly sniffing around each other to figure out what they were smelling. Subtly, at first, then more compulsively. The last woman left gave him a radiant smile before she stepped off.

    Today I made him try Geurlain's Derby, which he instantly hated, but it was too late to wash off. Same elevator scene: three women and him. He felt embarrassed by smelling like a "tart" -- until he realized that one woman was carrying a big reeking bag of McDonalds. Saved.

    Best reactions ever are to the Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin. My wive's friends love it way too much where the good ole Bvlgari Black is a runner up....

    Let's throw another one into the mix that hasn't had much coverage on Basenotes up to now - just got back from Italy with Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Mirto Di Panarea. G/F LOVES it and a couple of colleagues have commented too.

    I can't believe it! I have read this whole thread and I noticed Creed's Millesime Imperial was mentioned quite a lot and also I remembered I had a tester of it which was given to me when I bought my GIT from Creed Boutique in Paris some two years ago. I have tried it once and I didn't like it. However after reading this thread i decided to give it a better chance. So, I've put few drops on my neck instead of the lovely Terre d'Hermes last night, and then went to see my current girlfriend who immediately noticed I am wearing "a new fragrance which is divine". She has never commented anything on Terre What's that in MI which is so appealing to women that I can't comprehend? It's jsut fresh and a little bit sweet but nothing I could identify as high class... Women!

    Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin gets compliments because it is feminine smelling and also stimulates the "taste buds" of a person ( granted they have not actually drank it ! ).

    Anything feminine on a guy will garner compliments from a lady/girl.

    I'm glad Shalashaska tells it like it is

    Well what makes a fragrance feminine. I hear a lot of people here call all sweet scents feminine but locally at places like Sephora, Perfumania, Dillarids, Macy's wherever they tend to call the fruity citrusy Acquatics femine and they consider things like Obsession for Men to be uber masculine.......I tend to agree with the locals on this one. Here at basenotes our members might say that ADG is more masucline than Le Male or Lolita Lempicka but in my opinion ADG with its fruity cucumbermelon style scent is one of the most feminine out there. I agree totally that sweeter scents get more compliments from the ladies I am living proof of that as I love scents with Vanilla and Amber but, I don't think these scents are feminine (espcially Le Male, Obsession, and Gucci Envy)

    Along this same line, I got a nice compliment from my secretary on my Dior Homme today.

    It's a slightly feminine scent that I have not used since May, probably. It's just better when it gets cooler outside.

    It seems we all pretty much buy the concept of gender typing of fragrance without necessarily finding it strictly logical or easy to define. I would love to know if/how perfumers routinely class ingredients as masculine and feminine and then hear the logic of these classifications. That said, I think Surfacing is right that women might be excited by smelling the scents they enjoy wearing on a man. At least, the women who used to like trying lipstick on their boyfriends might feel that way! I suppose certain women might find any kind of olfactory ambiguity confusingly off-putting.

    Default Re: Which scent gets you the most female compliments?

    It's going a little off topic but I like the idea of having feminine and masculine fragrances. This makes it more interesting, you can catch a smell somewhere and even without knowing whom it is coming from, you can already start your imagination (of course in case of more pronounced masculine and feminine fragrances). Also, by separating fragrances by sex, you can emphasize your appearance as a man or a woman, otherwise it will be a blurred image. As for who has decided which ingredient is masculine and which feminine - that is probably a century tradition of identifying flowery-sweet aroma with a feminine nature and musky-leathery-sharp-herbal scents with men. All this is artificial of course but personally I like it this way

  25. #745

    Default Re: Which scent gets you the most female compliments?

    Flowery-sweet aroma with women musky-leahtery-sharp-herbal with men......see this is still blurred look at Old Spice it is sweet spicey and to be honest probably the essence of masuculinity (sorry Brut). I am serious here I think that the average Joe and the basenoters are exact opposites here. Old Spice, Obsession, Gucci Envy, Paul Sebastian these scents are considered uber masucline by the people I am around while Acquatics Cool Water, Issey Miyake, ADG are considered more feminine. In some ways I think it is because so many people I am around wear light aquatics that when I hit them with a sweet woody amber like Hypnose Homme or Givency Pi the woodiness comes across more masucline than the fruity fresh. To get back on topic I am still in agreement that women like sweeter scents better whether that sweetness is coming from Fruit, Vanilla/Amber, or Nutmeg/Cimmanon/Spice.

    Hi guys! New to the community ...

    One thing I see we don't take into account is age. I think most of the fragances has a target age , so it would be very usefull to put our age (females as well) when talking about fragances and compliments.

    In my case I got good compliments from Chanel Allure Sport and AdG (I'm 27 and compliments from 22-26). But now I want to get into some YSL or Gucci staff, as I see how high are rated here. Last week I bought A*Men ... It's hard at the beggining, very tasty, even I got a bit sick, but the dry down fragance is so nice.

    Some advice about Rive Gauche, M7, Envy, Kourus ....? I'd like something elegant and oriental

    Thanks!
    Glad to have found this community

    Koursos can be harsh so be careful with it some will love it others will hate it for sure.
    Envy is a nice fragrance but again be careful it is very old school along the lines of Obsession and Paul Sebastian. It is a nice fragance though and you will get complimented on it as long as you go light.
