    One man can melt everyone he meets while wearing Old Spice, and another idiot in Amouage, Tom Ford or { insert fave here } can make women run for the hills.

    :toppie: /of thread. Seriously guys, there are so many variables. Guys that go to clubs everynight are bound to get compliments from drunk woman (and vice versa), versus someone who wears fragrance subtely, but leaves perhaps a better impression on woman that are sober (). In the end, listen to others opinions around you, but make sure that the ultimate decision is coming from numero uno.

    I wasn't going to post about this but I believe it's time....



    There is one fragrance out there that is very hard to get...

    Many cannot even pronounce its name properly....

    Only a lucky few have had to the chance to try it...

    And those men who have been lucky enough to find a bottle of it have never turned back...

    One spray and all the women you've ever loved and wanted will see you in a whole new perspective...

    You're entire life will change, as you become a walking, talking sexual pheromone...

    What's this magically erotic nectar of the sex gods called?


    AQUA DI GIO


    Obviously I'm exaggerating, but seeing as how this fragrance is enjoyed by everyone and their mother (with the sole exception of Basenotes members), why are there 28 pages and almost 2000 posts to this thread?? If you're new to fragrances and you're reading this, please go buy a bottle of Aqua di Gio and save yourself days and money sampling fragrances to find "the most complimented fragrance in the universe."

    And yes, as so many wise people have said in this thread before me, it's HOW you wear it, not WHAT you wear, granted it smells somewhat OK to begin with (like Aqua di Gio!)

    I feel better now that I've got that off my chest.

    The only woman I must please is my spouse. For that reason, I do not wear any fragrance she does not like. Her favorites change and most recently she has favored YSL Rive Gauche and Guerlain Vetiver. I think she has excellent taste.

    With that out of the way, I do not remember the last time I was complimented on the fragrance I was wearing. I do not know whether I should be unhappy about this or just glad at least none has told me to my face that I smell bad. I think I will choose the latter.

    This thread is about which scent gets you the most female comments. With the comment being specifically about the scent, not the person. It's not asking which scent gets you a date, gets you laid, makes the ex jealous, etc. Simply which scent gets noticed by females. Get it?

    What I meant was, even the most stunning/expensive/whatever scent cannot make someone into something they are not.

    Meaning: IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT COLOGNE YOU WEAR when it comes to attracting a woman (or a man)

    Attraction is animal and comes from within. Then, after that initial attraction, there is chemistry. It helps if you smell good, but what smells good to one person might make another gag. And, chemistry can override smell. If there is zero chemistry one can smell like heaven and it won't be enough.

    Is this such a tough concept to grasp?

    This thread is about what scents gets you the most female compliments? Right. Okay then why are we myself included getting caught up in their is no magical scent. I think that is a giving. But, what is so bad about asking other basenote members what gets them the most compliments? Isn't it just for an interesting conversation? How is it any different than asking what scent is best for the office? You could say there is no perfect office scent just wear what is acceptable in your office building. You know that is a good answer but there is no discussion no substance no compare and contrast.

    By the way got a "what are you wearing? it smells so good." On my Versace Man Eau Fraiche yesterday.

    Be careful. Here if you are buying a fragrance to get compliments I would say ADG isn't the one. You will get postive comments but they are likely to be just that comments. Also, you could reming her of her ex boyfriend who also wears ADG. Just a warning to be careful. I say test ADG if you fall in love with it buy it if you don't try Chanel Allure Sport or Chrome.

    Definitely not so... The majority of the compliments I receive from females are from fresh scents. Allure by Chanel, Nautica Oceans, Bulgari Aqua Marine, A&F Colden... and believe it or not I sprayed JOOP! on at a Sears just to sniff it and think to myself "who would ever buy this ?!" and I was asked what kind of fragrance I was wearing. Maybe she meant that as "hey what are you wearing so that I know to never ever buy that for any man in my life"

    It's a matter of taste, true, but who doesn't love a fresh clean scent ?

    1280 Adam you said you receive compliments on A&F Colden and that is it a fresh scent. Really Fresh? While I would never buy an A&F fragrance I always smell anything new and when I checked out Colden it smelled exactly like CK Euphoria for Men to me and I wouldn't call Euphoria a fresh scent more of an oriental. But I can see you getting compliments on Colden though.

    Colden and Euphoria are very similar, I actually prefer Colden. Too bad the longevity is abysmal.

    Hm, no I don't think so......just yesterday I was standing in line at Starbucks and this guy in front of me smelled so yummy. Not strong but really goooooood. I found myself leaning closer to sniff him and honestly, my mouth was almost watering. I finally asked what he was wearing- Joop!

    Ok he was pretty cute but it was all about the smell. YUMS.

    Joop is no doubt a magnet. I have a friend who wears it and girls compliment him on it a lot. I even had a girl come up to me at KMART one time when I was looking at the fragrances and say "that smells really good" while she was pointing at a bottle of Joop. Obviously this was here way of opening up a conversation with but still she liked Joop.

    When i think of oriental I think of Opium or Egoiste... I'll have to revisit Euphoria because I only smelled it once when it 1st came out and compare it to Colden. Luckily still being friends with your old manager at A&F can get you the employee discount so I didn't get Colden for full price

    This reminds me of a article I once read about medievil women placing a peeled apple in their armpits for a while to allow their perspiration to saturate the apple meat. They then gave it to their man of choice to allow him to recall her charms via sniffing the apple when he was away from her for an extended period of time, of perhaps even if he didn't leave the area. German medievil custom had the fellow eating the perspiration soaked apple to ensure a good relationship with the woman.

    I wonder if this story has been somewhat altered from the description of the actual custom..

    6 compliments from women & 1 from a guy during one single day_ L'Eau Bleue D'Issey_ not bad from a fragrance as some have called it ''smell like rotting vegetables or disposal waste'', I guess my skin likes ''putrid fragrances'' and other people ''putrid'' on me.

Not how to be a player etc...........this is just a discussion about what scent female compliment you on. By the way Chanel Allure Sport got a few you smell goods this weekend.

    Ladies and Gentlemen let me introduce to you the defending champion of AHS I give you Sokkou!!!!!!! On a more serious note. AHS is really a great scent and it does get the compliments. I actually do not own a bottle I just used one of those little sample vials sprays they make for you at Sephora. I was wondering is there a difference in using a scent from a sample vial and using a scent from a full size bottle. I am asking would the scent be more intense from the real bottle would you get a bigger spray things of that nature?

  40. #1660

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

    Ya, the Allure Homme Sport sprayer sprays a good deal of liquid, almost like a Creed sprayer, and alot more than the little Chanel sample spray they give at Sephora. Because Chanel uses a good deal of real ingredients, the concentration of the liquid over skin per sq.cm or so and the amount sprayed greatly changes the scent. Needs to be sprayed evenly from like 8" or so.

    And yes, as always, Hiel AHS.

AHS has gotten me compliments from the sample and you telling me the real bottle is even more intense really makes me want to go out and get at least a 1.7 bottle soon. The ONLY thing stopping me from buying a bottle so far is that I already own Versace Pour Homme.

    For what it's worth my girlfriends absolute favorite on me is AdP Colonia Intensa (I'm almost 27, she's 22, for what it's worth). Fleur du Male also scores very highly and is another where I sometimes have to pull her head from my chest for fear she'll asphyxiate from sniffing so madly.

    She also loves Encre Noire and Amouage Lyric. With taste like that, I think she's a keeper! :bounce:

    *I've also gotten a number of compliments on Versace Pour Homme and still maintain that it is a more interesting scent than Allure Homme Sport, although they are sufficiently different to warrant owning both if you like them both.

    I've been wearing Allure Homme Sport the last few days and yes I have been getting compliments but..........no more compliments than when I wear Versace Pour Homme. To be honest the reaction to the two fragrances from younger women 18-mid 30's s are pretty much equal they love them both. Older women seem to notice the VPH more or at least they comment on the VPH more.

    Sorry because of bumping this thread for a millionth time (since, alas, it is really not my first post on this thread), for getting maybe off-topic and also for repeating an opinion so predictable, that it was most likely said countless times before:
    but if only ONE scent could get ALL female compliments (and also more than just that...) in the world, with mathematical precision and NO exception from the rule, only one fragrance house or only one single sort, brand or variation of a perfume would become an instant bestseller, while most of the other perfume companies would go broke (unless women eventually become immune, or even better product creates new markets and an even tougher competition, unless romantic pursuit and romantic wear are becoming increasingly obsolete, and even if they are instinctive, corporate greed will trigger even stronger instincts and make them trendy, therefore bankable, unless nonsexual reproduction becomes possible, unless asexuality will become the greatest form of interpersonal relations and- oddly-of sexual experimentation, unless perfumes will not only be supposed to get the opposite sex but also cash, immortality, wisdom)

    I don't get it either, as when I originally sampled it I thought it smelled extremely dirty. The bottle I have now doesn't smell dirty at all - the dirt note I used to detect is now filled in with a woody petitgrain note.

    I hated this scent. It was one of the few I had listed as a one star scent. Now, I love it, and if it weren't for the extreme longevity and associated syntheticness I'd give it five stars. I just don't know what changed - my perception or the juice (perhaps it is prone to going off?). I still remember that first testing - 5 minutes later I was in the bathroom mall, scrubbing!

    For what it's worth she didn't think much of it on a card or sniffing the nozzle. After it had been on about 30 minutes though, I practically had to pry her away. I'm assuming she didn't detect any dirt/fecal notes whatsoever as she would have told me - she is quite honest with her opinions of my scents (as I want and told her to be).

    Good to see you back man. I've had girls say it smells like a stinky old lady when I let them smell it, but then on a night we go out and I have it on my skin they're like "whoa, what is that? It's so good."

    I had the exact same experience... 6 months later I tried it again and loved it. I do get something along the lines of stinky feet, but that's the indoles from the florals in Fleur du male.

    30 women who have been to your house and smelled Fleur Du Male? Do you have a revolving door and doorman?

    How many women have you invited for other fragrance surveys, or to check out your etchings?

    revolving door?....i have my own place and dont have any trouble with women. I also have a very very large fragrance collection(for a non basenoter) which draws attraction in itself and typically the bright white torso of Fleur Du Male is usually the first bottle to be grabbed. And seeking(for my own personal satisfaction) their reaction to a 'controversial' scent is not such a bad idea at all.

    In case you werent sure double check my screen name again.
    CDG 3 (The one you CAN'T find anywhere) for trade.
