    I'm really tired of it, but L'Eau de Issey gets me the most consistent compliments from women.

    Channel Pour Monsieur gets some nice feedback. But I'm a "mature" man. It's certainly not a club frag.

    Amouage Dia gets me a little traction too.

    I fear we're all chasing our tails a bit here. All the forum surfing I do in this category seems to indicate that many of the men's frags women like are usually the most popular and overused.

    I suppose that makes sense, but it's a bit annoying for those of us looking for something a little more unique.

    I think the connection between scent and memory means the more mainstream frags are going to garner more compliments.

  19. #1699

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

    Connection between scent and memory? You are walking a think line here Adonis. What I mean is are these really compliments? When a female says "Ummm Cool Water I love that one" I do not think that is a compliment I think that is a comment about Cool Water. When a girl says "you smell great" I take that as compliment. There are others here who feel the same way. A generic comment about a particular frag does not count as compliments in my book. With that being said over the weekend at a club a girl was close to me and said "you smell really good" out of nowhere we weren't even conversating at the time. Versace Pour Homme strikes again.

    I think you missunderstand adonis, he is trying to tell that when some woman give you a compliment, that is because your smell reminds her on some good things happen to her in the past. And the mainstream colognes has better chance here, some obscure niche no matter how good it smell, wil be something new to her...

    I was working out in the advanced weight room today at the Y while my daughter (3 yo) was in Movie Adventures class. I was at the pec deck machine when an attractive 36ish woman approached my left peripheral vision field. She breathlessly intoned: You smell soooooo good. It's such a nice change from what it usually smells like in here.

    I said (lied), with a bemused expression on my face, Hmmph! I didn't even know I was wearing cologne and I sniffed my forearm. Oh, I guess I am I said. Thanks! She said, NO, Thank YOU!

    Not too surprising, since I look like a 47-yo Brad Pitt.....well....anyway. I saw her a couple of times a bit later and she was scrupulously avoiding looking at me. I inferred that she was thinking: Dude, I like your cologne, I don't like your ugly ass! HA! (matters not, I'm happily married)

    The fragrance was HUGO.

    Difference in Perception...

    I was doused in this fragrance last friday evening...no one mentioned anything about it the whole night....I went as far as asking a few people about their reaction and it was lukewarm at best.

    Then I come accross a female who literally walks by me and stops dead in her tracks and doesnt leave me alone for the next half hour until she finds out what fragrance i am wearing.....day after she texted me about how infatuated she was with 'my scent'....

    I do have a very very strong attraction to sillage of women passing by, specially in groups, then I try to guess which one is wearing the scent, so initial attraction ,very much. generally, not really.

    Then again, maybe it's more about that they NOTICED... not that they really actually do like it. Kind of like when you see someone with a new haircut, and what you say is "nice haircut", when what you really meant was "I noticed you got your haircut"... not sure if I like it though.

    There are many frags like black XS that are just so overpowering that they get ATTENTION, so it's just an excuse for a girl to say something to you, an opener. I doubt that in many cases they inherently actually like the scent.

    Well, not exclusively, but what I'm really saying is that the way we approach scents as masterful blends, smelling the whole drydown, scouring the earth for rare and unusual notes, etc... is one thing.
    I'm suggesting that the reason why some pretty generic or even offensive (especially sweet - Black XS, Joop!, Le Male, etc) get "compliments" are that they just attract a lot of attention. Like wearing a pink furry hat, it's got a bit of shal we say, "mystery", to it. It could be a passing compliment, but I see frag compliments as girls just looking for an opportunity to compliment you. Maybe as a deep underlying sexual type of thing too (like musks and many more earthy, woody type scents. - I find these more hit and miss.)

    While I like getting "compliments", I'm not sure how much of it is just "attention" versus actual interest.

    This can totally be true. A conversation starter, although if she doesn't like it at all, she is not likely to initiate conversation. Again, the clean "good smelling" man thing is a positive.

    The best smelling man is ,as 3xasif said- a clean smelling man.
    God knows how many unwashed men go to the gym and they don't know we can smell them. I have had to put a towel on my head ( much to everyone's amusement ) throughout a 1 hour cycle because the guy next to me smelt so bad. I do think my nose is very sensitive too .
    I would much rather smell a clean man or a man with cologne on rather than one who has not bothered to shower at all !
    The original Tommy Hilfiger is wonderful on a man . Drakkar noir- I will keep saying Drakkar Noir ( maybe just one or two sprays )
    I have never smelt Joop for men though.

    Clean smelling man? Interesting in that it is such a broad range of what clean can mean. A guy who showers with Old Spice Pure Sport Bodywash will be clean and so will a guy who showers with Old Spice Fresh Bodywash and so will a guy who showers with Khiel's Orginal Musk bodywash but the orginal musk bodywash is not necessarily a clean scent. I know what you mean about a clean smelling guy as in one who doesn't stink but that comment can be very interesting depending on one's idea of clean.

    Well a clean smellling man to me,just means one who has showered with soap / shower gel of any kind that morning and applied / not applied cologne of any kind.
    Believe me, I can smell the difference between an unwashed man and a man who has showered and applied anything . Anything including Kiehl's Musk would be better than BO.( Some of these guys at the gym are my friends but I will never hurt their feelings by telling them about the smell I get. I hope another man friend will tell them eventually .)

    Let me clarify what I meant.

    By "clean smelling man" I meant groomed, with whatever shower gel/soap/lotion/ cologne etc that man likes to use, and what makes him feel good. A man who has made an effort to be clean, not necessarily to smell like soap, or to smell like any particular note. Especially if I feel that man made the effort on my behalf. But, just in general, a well groomed man is a hot man.

    I could tell you what men's cologne was a huge turn on, say, yesterday, on a particular man, but that may not work tomorrow, on a different man. Does that make sense?

    I understand what you mean. lol at you using Old Spice Original Bodywash and Khiel's Musk bodywash (which is unisex). I have actually gotten compliments after using Old Spice Pure Sport Bodywash before. It is a really good scent and the Cologne version and the Bodyspray versions of the scent while nice don't have the same scent of the bodywash or even the deodorant. Since I have gotten compliments on the Old Spice Pure Sport Bodywash I bet a Cologne or EDT that has that scent would get compliments as well.

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

    I'd never gotten a comment of any sort from a woman about my scent(s), and then two in a fortnight...

    The most dramatic one occurred last week when I went to collect my daughter from school.

    I was just out of the shower after tennis, and freshly scented. One of the mothers (32, blonde, single, a very yummy mummy) came over to my car to ask me something. When I lowered the window she literally SWOONED! I've never seen such a visceral reaction to anything. She immediately demanded to know the name of my scent so that she could buy it for her new boyfriend. Now, I regularly use her as a sounding board (should that be "smelling board"?) for scents, so over the years she has sampled dozens of scents on arms/back of my hand. None have ever had that effect on her.

    The scent was Teck by Molinard, which I had only pulled out from the back of my press that morning for a laugh. Needless to say, Teck will be front and centre from now on!

    The second incident occurred a few days later, and again involved a mum from my daughter's school (this time 40, brunette, married, also yummy). I sat down near her and a load of other mums to watch our kids' tennis lesson. She immediately slid over beside me and started sniffing my neck. Then she started guessing what I was wearing.

    It got better, as she kept nuzzling my neck to have another sniff, and then got the other mums to sniff and guess as well. The best guess was Armani - but I was actually wearing Kouros Fraicheur.

    This happened four hours after I'd applied the Kouros.

    So chalk one up to the King!

    KF and Teck now have pride of place at the front of my collection, alongside Yatagan, the new Fahrenheit Absolute and my many incense-based scents.

    God knows how many unwashed men go to the gym and they don't know we can smell them. I have had to put a towel on my head ( much to everyone's amusement ) throughout a 1 hour cycle because the guy next to me smelt so bad. I do think my nose is very sensitive too .
    I would much rather smell a clean man or a man with cologne on rather than one who has not bothered to shower at all !
    The original Tommy Hilfiger is wonderful on a man . Drakkar noir- I will keep saying Drakkar Noir ( maybe just one or two sprays )
    I have never smelt Joop for men though.
    Joop Homme is zealosly sweet and potent, women, specialy younger, love it on men.

    Secret of applying is one spray on chest only + one on the neck maybe, but just maybe.

    I have JOOP! on today as my SOTD. I had the wisdom to spray responsibly: two sprays to the chest. No compliments yet.

    Every single time I wear Bleecker Street (maybe about once per month), my girlfriend comments on it positively. She rarely comments on any other fragrance I own. I've received compliments on this from others as well.

    I am sure some women (and men) have done this: comment on or even compliment a scent to find out what it is because it is just awful.

    that too , though I'm usually unpleasantly honest. I asked a friend once, on his birthday, ˝what is this scent you have?˝ He answered, I think it was Hugo, don't remember wich one...and I simply complimented him with: ˝it's atrocious˝

    Gotta aim low with the sprayer with JOOP... You want people to guess where and who it's coming from.

    If ya spray it too high up (chest, neck, forearms) it's a dead giveaway

    I have noticed there is some differences in what women in the Female Discussion area claim to like vs. what the Males tend to entirely dislike. One example is Givenchy Pi; there were quite a few women who have said they like the scent, while it seems to be nearly entirely disliked by the Males.
