    Calvin by Calvin Klein. Every day that I wear that cologne I get compliments from hot chicks in NYC without fail. They had stopped making it for a while now. Calvin was brought back in 1999 for its 10-year anniversary. I'm hoping that Calvin Klein will bring it back next year for its 20th year anniversary. Does anyone know if this is going to happen? There are a couple of people selling the 1.7 oz or 50ml spray bottles on EBAY, but I don't know if they are fakes are not. Can they make fake bottles on Ebay? They look really convincing.

    Is there a scent that smells like new clothes? How about one that smells like you just got out of the showers like Dial or Irish Spring soap smell?

    I don't know about new cloths. But I have heard that Aramis smells like Dial Soap as well is King Cologne that you can find at drug stores and wal-mart. Irish Spring that is a tough one to me it has a very green brisk smell I always associate Irish Spring with Brut Cologne but that is probably because when I was younger my parents bought Irish Spring and my dad used Brut Cologne so..........

    I have Nautica Voyage and it smells exactly like the blue Irish Spring bar soap. As for the original green Irish Spring, I dunno.

    What are you guys talking about? I feel like I'm missing the beginning of a thread. Did another thread get merged into this one?


    Edit: I'm stupid. I just re-read the posts above me. I get it now.

    I love Eau Noire on my DH. It's complicated and dark, but also, strangely cool and creamy. Does exclaiming "Eau Noire!" to your husband count? Or does this have to be compliments from strangers?

    I will find an excuse to nuzzle any half-way cute guy if he smells like tobacco (maybe Fumerie Turque or Eau de Baux but not Jasmin et Cigarette) but don't tell my DH!

    Encre Noire is a much more refined and better scent.
    I know it's an offtopic but man I would like to thank you! Terre d'Hermes was my favorite perfume and I was a little bit offended when I read your opinion so I decided to test that Encre Noire and see what could be so much better than my beloved one I was stunned with the very first sniff at my wrist 20 seconds after I have sprayed it. You are kind of wrong about it being "a version" of Terre d'Hermes - yes, both have vetiver and that's it, otherwise they are different, but you are so right about it being great! I liked it more than TdH and actually Encre Noire is currently my favorite perfume! Thank you again, I feel so happy and maybe that's the first time I can have any real advantage of reading basenotes!

    The original green Irish Spring would probably be Mugler Cologne.

    Without starting another thread my question is if someone came to you and said I am looking for a new scent and my only objective is to receive compliments from females what five fragrances would you recommend? Keeping in mind that quality doesn't matter and female compliments is the only objective. I would recommend in no particular order
    1)Le Male
    2)Acqua Di Gio
    3)Armani Code
    4)Issey Miyake
    5)Givency Pi

    Pi by givenchy smells a bit too feminine. Le Male is slightly overkill too. What time during the day are these colognes for? I like to wear cologne casually and naturally, so during the day with sandals, shorts and a t shirt or basketball shorts/athletic apparel is how I like to dress to suit my cologne. So, for that, these are the best everyday scents (no night-time fancy wear):

    Lacoste Red
    Issey Miyake
    Cool Water
    Armani Code (for nighttime I think? I don't know for day)
    Tommy Bahama Very Cool (SO beachy-nice!)
    AF Fierce
    Encre Noire (more of a woody daytime scent in the forest, rather than nighttime wood-musk. I love this one!)

    Dude, it's about "Which scent gets you the most female compliments?", not about your favorite fragrances I think you are writing in the wrong thread

    Just a general note here.

    I notice several people have started putting Armani Code down.

    What's interesting is that I have not yet gone as far as purchasing this so I tried a few spritzes earlier today on the back of my right hand.

    A couple of hours later I thought - oh I don't remember putting on that... that's Desir isn't it? Oh, no it's not quite as good...

    Armani Code dries down similarly to Desir, but is not quite as well, damn sexy frankly.

    My quest for more Desir continues as I am still not able to secure more bottles...

    I have to agree on this. No matter if you try 5000 niche, the biggest compliment getters will always be Armani Code, Le Male and AdG. You forgot about D&G pour homme though.

    Armani Code is a wonderful fragrance. People tend to put down stuff if it's too popular. I'm sure if it was a fragrance created by, say, Lutens, they would kiss it's ass (not that it has one)

    Yeah I left out D&G Pour Homme and a few others as I was looking for five. But you could add Curve, Curve Crush, Lucky You, Fierce, and D&G Pour Homme as another five and there are tons more as well.

    Do people have actual experience with compliments on Desir?

    My female friends find code much superior, and Desir 'too perfumey'.

    Important: when during the day are you wearing Armani Code? Day or Night? And what kind of clothes were you wearing?

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

    I only really wear one cologne, Jacomo De Jacomo Rouge, because I haven't found anything else that I can wear daily. It seems to work well for me because the girls at work or club compliment it and/or try and stand closer to me.

    I always read in the reviews that women melt over this stuff for some reason. I'm wondering if it would work for an ugly man.
