    Monday around noon, however, I ran into a good acquaintance who I had not seen in several months through no particular fault of our own. I am not really a "hug person" and neither is she but it seemed appropriate under the circumstances so we attempted a cursory embrace...or at least, *I* did.

    In the morning, I had applied about half of a 1mL vial of Voleur de Roses to my chest and wrists with the intent of giving it a full-day's wearing. I've noticed that some scents seem to absolutely ignite on me after I apply them, traipse about in the cold for a bit, and then come back inside, which is exactly what happened just prior to the encounter with my friend.

    The story doesn't get much more interesting, except that I felt her take a deep breath before exhaling and the hug itself lasted rather longer than I had expected. Not to the point of awkwardness (she is much too attractive for that to be possible, crude as it sounds) but I was certainly taken aback by it.

    Typing this now, I can't stifle a wry smile. The wet rose-bouquet metaphor seems to have struck a chord with her especially, although I myself preferred the opening and the demurer latter stages of the drydown.

    I didn't receive a compliment per se, nor was I looking for one, but the reaction was far more interesting than any verbal acknowledgement could have been, I think.

    I agree with these two statements/experiences. Sometimes when I get complimented on a scent I'm wearing that day I get self concious. I feel that I may have over applied or that the verbal compliment I recieved was more of a "you're wearing too much cologne" comment.

    When somebody has a physical reaction to a fragrance I'm wearing (ie when I notice them smelling me, or when a hug turns into an embrace, it lets me know that they appreciate the way I smell more than a verbal reaction to the fragrance.

    Jaipur is too heavy, if worn for formal dinners then yeah, other than that I like lighter based scents, even at night.

    Most of the scents adored on Basenotes are too heavy, especially if you're looking to impress girlies.

    Certainly true for the masculines ! My personal experience is that women generally appreciate faint smells of shave lotions and nothing else.

    Walked into Tiffany's to get my girlfriend a necklace, and was literally ATTACKED by female AND male employees about how good I smell! Scent that caused the commotion: Sean John Unforgivable. (the prices of the necklaces caused me to perspire a bit--so maybe Unforgivable possesses hidden attributes that manifest through heat activation) haha

    What did they say, can you be specific? I.e., when you walked in, what words they spoke, reactive body gestures, etc. I know this may sound retarded but I'm curious. More detail on scent reactions makes it nicer for us to contemplate getting it. Was that the only time for unforgiv. you got such response?

    Important: how old were they (male and female) ? Age range? Gracias

    That's the one. It's amazing. I bought it from Nordstrom a few years back.

    Story. Last summer I get a call from one of my guy friends that he's planning on having a pool party at his place. It's Arizona, it's hot and I know theirs gonna be a lot of people there.

    So, I show up and run into to the pool. As soon as I come up out of the water, no joke, 10 dudes all say, what are you wearing?! That smells amazing!

    To protect this secret weapon I told them it was Cool Water. Funny thing is, they ALL went out and bought it! ha ha!

    Even after swimming, everyone could smell it lingering through out the night. Tons of compliments and the ladies go nuts over it.

    Also wore it once to a buddies wedding and the ladies were all over me. It drove the dudes nuts.

    Awesome.

    I don't see the point in posting about compliments recieved from anone who could potentially gain something financially from yo. Earlier in this thread strippers were mentioned, and now people at Tiffany's. THESE PEOPLE WANT YOUR MONEY, if they detect anything they are likely to comment on it!

    20-26 range.

    I have tested BD. It's basically a parfume version of the original but a tad sweeter IMO. Not bad. I've only seen it at Nordstrom, but you can probably find it on the net as well. Try it out and let me know what you think.

    For me so far Acqua di Gio and Dior Homme, but the age of the girls where -18.. so, older women probally prefer others.

    According to fragantica.com, Canali for men and Canali Prestige have the same exact notes. I guess the the Prestige version is just a stronger or more intense version

    @Sokkou. It is TERRIBLE out of the bottle. Instead headache in 2 squirts. Try it on your chest, then put your shirt on. I promise in 2 hours you will change your mind. It has garnered me more compliments than anything in my wardrobe. You do have to get past the initial synthetic blast...
