    I have never smelled it before, but I know they sell it at Aedes De Venustas in New York, as well as either Neiman Marcus or Saks (maybe both).

    I just smelled Encre Noire today and...wow. It smells like Burberry London but the wood note is not overdone, its actually a lot more honed in and not in-your-face wood scent. In fact, this cologne is different in the sense that it is a lot more specific and fine-tuned in its scent rather than, say, something like a cologne which delivers a single splat of a scent like Acqua di Gio, Polo, etc. It was real captivating and unique, and definitely sensual, I think it'll be a big win with the ladies

    Lately it has been Desir by Rochas - even men have stopped me (not gay men either) and said wow you smell fantastic. One woman at a show I was in kept coming up to me and smelling me because it turned her on.

    No other fragrance has had the effect on women that this does. And I have a large collection,

    I work in a restaurant and I have never had more compliments in one day while I was wearing Comme des Garcons 2 Man. One night at work 3 seperate woman and 1 man stopped me and demanded I tell them what I was wearing. The flip side is there is this one regular customer who hates it but I don't take stock in his disapproval however. I love 2 Man so much I even started a thread on this fragrance. Comme des Garcons should pay me.

    Default Come on, FIERCE?!

    A&F Fierce supposedly gets insane compliments by ladies on the message boards and discussions. I smelled it and it smells like burnt sweat and rubber. Am I wrong? Who has smelt this because not only is it awkward smelling but also has unnecessary praise.

    I think everyone has "smelt" this. It has been around a long time. I personally think it smell decent, but I have never owned and will never own it.

    Since I've purchased Tam Dao, I've gotten 4 direct compliments from ladies on how great it smelled to them. I think most guys probably supress the urge to compliment another guy. If I smell something good on someone, I generally compliment and ask what it is.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    As of lately:

    Jean Patou Pour Homme Priv'e
    Canali Black Diamond
    YSL M7
    Comptoir Sud Pacifica Eau de Cypres
    Tom Ford Black Orchid

    There's so many factors involved in what particular fragrance would garnish comments irregardless of gender:
    Climate
    How much did I apply
    My personality and general level of approachability
    The complimentor's own personal fragrance preferences
    If they've been drinking or not
    If they're assertive enough to mention it
    Proximity

    Blah, Blah, Blah... but it does feel good to be complimented, being the attention seeking whore that I am

    I think you hit the nail on the head, currently I been wearing Musc Ravaguer a lot and that really gets noticed when I walk in a room,

    but in the past it i have been complimented on other colognes just as much i think it just depends on the factors you said above

    Dudester, I bought it at Ben Gurian airport in Tel Aviv.

    I have worn it again in the last week and AGAIN received several compliments. It's remarkable how this relatively ignored fragrance is really so heavily complimented in a way that many of my more niche fragrances aren't.

    I am going to buy another bottle as soon as I can find one because I am worried that it is going to be discontinued.

    hmmm..."Exceptional for him" is a fragrance that Fragrancenet.com sends out samples of with every order you make.......you can get like a 3.4 oz bottle for 34 dollars...after the coupon.

    its pleasant and nice without the offputting quality that ADG has....but nothing more than that......i wore it like 3 times total since i got the bottle like 6 months ago.

    Exceptional...for Him is from fragrancenet.com. I'm sure if you called them they would send you a free sample.

    I'm pretty sure you can only get "exceptional... because you are" from online retailers. I got mine from fragrancenet.com for free with an order a while back. I like it, but I like Millisime Imperial a bit more and get more compliments from MI (they're both similar in their top notes).

    Went to dinner with a group of friends recently and wore Very Irresistible Man/Givenchy. My buds were teasing me because the waitress was flirting with me alot and was just showing me alot of extra attention in general.

    When we left, she came to the table and hugged me and said, "Keep that cologne."

    One of the dudes in my group went out and bought the frag the next day.

    i get amazing compliments on it...from men and women. totally unexpected. i don't get much musk out of Encre Noire...but it has this breezy, cold, slightly floral and industrial dry down which gets it all going...i think.

    if the waitress is cute this makes for one adorable story.....she actually hugged you? i have had waitresses give me their number, lick their lips repeadetly show alot of other signs of open affection however i have never heard of a waitress coming up to a stranger patron and openly hugging him....you go boy...... =)

    and i'll give you as much or more credit than the cologne.....maybe its because i personally dislike 'Very Irresistible' but more likely because i dont believe that waitress would just start hugging up on random customer because he smelled good.

    Alex, getting this "credit" from a man as savvy as you are with the opposite sex is like giving me the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval or being Accepted by the American Dental Association.

    I humbly thank you.

    PS: Yes, she actually hugged me. For quite awhile.

    I agree about Encre Noire, it smells great! Personally I think its a much, MUCH better version of that stupid Terr'e d'Hermes cologne, that nasty thing got 106 POSITIVE reviews under Basenotes directory! I think it STINKS!

    Encre Noire is a much more refined and better scent.

    lol....well i refuse to believe that "Very Irrestistible" could actually live up to its actual monicker.

    and I'm sure when she hugged you and continued hugging you if you didnt have your own charm and appeal, the scent wouldnt have mattered especially when it happens to be quite resistible "Very Irresistible". =)

    Did you follow up on a hug with anything else in subsequent days?
