At the end of work, I applied a spritz of GIT before leaving in the washroom. I went back to my desk to clear up to go home, and my female colleague at the next desk exclaimed:
"WHO IS THAT?!?"
"'tis me" I replied
"How does your wife allow you to wear that on the train home?! I would never let you wear that without being by your side!"
+1 for GIT I guess
Received a compliment on wearing Dune by Christian Dior.
There hasn't been one day where I've applied a heavy dose (over 16 sprays) of Concentre D'Orange Verte, where it hasn't been commented on very positively by a woman. Sometimes it'll be an older woman in line at the post office, sometimes the apple of my eye, other times a goodlooking total stranger, but literally everytime I've worn it heavily, lots of female compliments.
Co-sign Silver Mountain Water also, this one always yields randon comments, and has even been a neck-jerker. A little (19yr old) latina I see every several weeks or so literally jerked her head back sideways inhaling the smell in, and gave me the look I like. lol
And Tobacco Vanille always gets female compliments with even a very light application like 2-3 sprays, but I only like that one in Winter so it's been awhile.
L'Anarchiste has surprisingly and consistently gotten the best reactions from men, and not as many from women, so maybe that's something for the gay community to consider.
It's generally the sillage-rich scents or heavy applications of light scents, that has gotten mass compliments. When I go lighter on the trigger it seems the only compliments are from my GF or a woman I hug like an aunt or such. Think next time you criticise someone who applies a fresh/light scent heavily.

so i decided to get Armani Code, and it smells fantastic. i put it on tonight, went out to a party, got three compliments from three very beautiful women.
still doesnt beat the 16 compliments i got at one wedding wearing l'instant, but i dont know if ill ever beat that record in one night
A friend of mine (local celebrity - by chance) uses Cartier Roadster as a signature scent. He gets tons of compliments for his scent literally every time he wears it.
p.s. not to mention that Roadster was my choice for him
ps for a local celebrity you could pick brut and he would get tons of compliments too
Tell Hugo, he isnt boss anymore.
OK, I'm new here
I love JPG's Le Male, but the one that one that worked for me when I was up to no good all the time was Aqua Di Gio, can't thank the designer enough I had the time(s) of my life lol.
Having said that, it's getting a bit same old. I'm considering getting Creed's GIT. Anyone for or against in terms of the compliments or not so positive comments you guys received? I am in Australia, where can I get the real GIT at cheap price?
Oh, and I agree with you...Acqua di Gio is very well regarded by people. It's really a great smell, no matter how many people wear it.
tobacco vanille is a sexy fragrance.
while this is true, you cannot just address it like that.
the same thing goes for something like clothing. u might be a great person with alot of game, but when your "going for the kill", would u rather be dressed as a homeless man, or in your best attire appropriate for the occasion? the same goes for fragrances. Closing the deal absolutely depends on the person, but having your weapons(in this case fragrances) to come along for the battle can do nothing but help u
Yes johny19, that's what I'm thinking, it can only helps and enhances to have the 'weapons'. Runners don't wear slippers or a pair of $20 shoes to a race.
and just to add..
this is nothing to count on, but on many many occasions, my fragrances have been the conversation starter. girl tells me i smell nice, and boom..the conversation begins
I never thought I'd say this, but I got 2 back to back compliments from women within an hour of each other yesterday when wearing Wicked by Bijan. I wear it because my wife likes it, but never expect to get compliments and really have never gotten any with it before.
I get a lot of compliments when I layer a little bit of Unforgiveable by Sean John over Polo Black. Almost every time I wear them that way I get women telling me how good I smell and asking what I'm wearing. One younger woman actually told me "that's the kind of smell that makes me want to throw on some lingerie and say 'come on, let's go baby' ". Of course she had been given some good drugs to help her get through the MRI scan I was about to put her through. I'm sure it was probably the drugs talking!
I get a lot of compliments (from both women and men) when I wear Tom Ford Black Orchid.

I got three compliments while wearing Stetson All American over the weekend surprised me a little bit actually.
Today I got 2 compliments from female coworker. I was wearing Caroline Herrera 212.
Even my daughter told me that I smelled good this morning. (but, every morning, she tells me that, no matter waht cologne I put...)
i went out with some family friends for dinner tonight. every single lady of the family hugged me and praised how amazing i smelt
the fragrance was givenchy pi.
im not surprised. say what u want about it, givenchy pi is a panty dropper
Family members...panties dropping...hmmmm...
Jean Patou Priv'e & Montale Black Aoud...

not family members..family friends. family friends in the persian culuture is a pretty broad statement. its not like there my best friends..
and regardless of who complimented it last night, ive gotten many compliments from givenchy pi
^ Just kidding!
I used to get a lot of compliments from Pi, too. I haven't worn mine in a while. I wear my Pi Neo a lot, but I've only gotten one compliment with it. I just love the scent itself so much, I would probably wear it even if people complained.
lol. ive actually never smelled pi neo myself, but its pretty obvious when u smell pi that right away youknow the ladies will love it. warm, sweet, romantic.
Pi Neo to me smells like a mix between Armani Code and Dsquared2 He Wood. It's very close to skin and doesn't have anything in common with the original Pi.
Acqua di Gi˛ is my guilty pleasure. What's yours?
Skarb, Yatagan, and Salvador Dali PH. Skarb, especially.
Iris Pallida 50ml
Ungaro I 75ml
and more! - http://www.basenotes.net/threads/301...n-Man-and-more
Hmmm! female compliments.... this is tricky a lot of them love it but dont dare comeup and compliment however some of the perfumes are strong enough to drive them to their knees.... i aint no good looking hunk but yes a few of them have done the trick for me....
1. Zanzibar ..... Van cleef and arpels
2. Armani by Armani
3. Versace by Versace
For all the gorgeous women
1. No 5 Chanel
2. Red Door by EA
3. London Burberry
Recently it has been Montale's Blue Amber....two compliments in one wearing.
A week before that it was Jean Paul's Fleur du Male. I noticed that out of all my colognes/perfumes montales are my biggest compliment getters. Everytime I have worn a montale people always want to know what it is even if i have worn it before. This has happened so many times that I can buy Montale's blind and not worry. Next up will be Red Aoud.
I got a compliment from a unknown woman today,
it was my first wear of the new Gucci Guilty, yay!
Creed Aventus. The compliments are happy, very spontaneous, and downright bouncy. There is quite a bit of enthusiastic curiosity regarding it too. It is closely followed by Amouage Reflection Man. Those compliments are more observant and seem to be rather measured and thought out, almost professional in expression. Green Irish Tweed gets a short 'Hey, that's great!'
Got one today while wearing Bleu de Chanel of all things.
I like it well enough but it's so light someone else commenting on it was kind of surprising.

Wore Minotaur out tonight - it was a BIG hit.
Domenico Caraceni 1913
The two that get me a lot of compliments are Hanae Mori and Eau d'Sud bu AG. They are understated and the gals and some guys like them.
well lately i have been getting compliments for JPG La male alot. And when i'm wearing it it seems that girls like to be close to me
Uden (Xerjoff) gets compliments again and again - by the same woman, her nose on my chest, saying źyou can't leave me now with that smell╗. That makes me helpless - an so I stay for another hour...
went out with my friends tonight. they know im big on fragrances and stuff like that, so they give real critism/compliments. so i went out to dinner with them and they were all amazing. they smelled me and said "WOW jonny. this is the best cologne uve ever worn. what IS this?!?"
that was a big statement, considering they have smelled the likes of Acqua Di Gio, Armani Code, Burberry Brit, La Nuit de L'homme, Givenchy Pi, L'instant, and many many more fragrances on me.
The Secret by Antonio Banderas.
Now when these friends compliment my cologne, i almost feel more comfortable with it. They dont know shit about fragrances and stuff like that, so theyre just judging on pure smell. not in depth judgement like us basenoters.
After dinner when my friends and i went to go to nordstroms so i can check out the creeds, one of the ladies shopping around the other fragrances walked past me and said "woah. u smell great. im trying to find a cologne for my husband. what r u wearing??" i almost felt embarrased to say it while standing infront of a shrine of Creed bottles, but i told her "Antonio Banderas the secret" and when she asked wear i bought it from, i just decided to say it was a gift, because im not about to tell people i bought a fragrance at CVS while im standing next to the most sacred of fragrances of all ttime
I Used to get sooooooo many compliments with Bora Bora by liz claiborne but its been about 4 years since the last time I wore it. I just hated spraying it on again every 2-4 hours! after 3 years of wearing it i discoverd bvlgari black and fell in love, have wore it for the last 4 years and ladies LOVE IT!! ALL OF THEM! well on me they do anyways hahaha! Ive had to tackle some of them after they have tried running off with my bottle! lol I just quit carrying it around in my truck! And always hid it when taking ladies back to my crib!
i was walking to my seat in class today, right past the most attractive girl in class. right when i got to her she looked up at me and said "dude thats the best smelling cologne ive ever smelled in my life"
thank u la nuit
damn im having a great compliment day/week..
went to go pick something up from the grocery store so i put on my "watever" cologne, acqua di gio. i was paying for my stuff when the girl bagging groceries asked if i wanted help out with my groceries(they have to ask everyone). i said no thank u, and then she replied "are u sure/? u smelll really good i wouldnt mind following u out" and then i gave her a laugh and left.
i think the basenotes world really underrates acqua di gio due to its popularity. theres a reason its so popular, because whether we like to believe it or not, its a great scent, possibly one of the greatest aquatics of all time

OK, did it put out $$$ for Creed
I have read other posts of positive notes, I guess I just have to drown myself in more, because it is a great dissapointment as far as lasting more then a few hours.
If I leave the house at 5 or a special nite, I dont want my companion to to have to stick there head down my shirt around 9 to smell what remains of creed
Johnny, you wear la nuit to class? I couldn't imagine doing that, how does it work out as a day time scent? Winter's arriving, and i'm struggling for a spot on my line up, don't really want to opt for armani code as it's so played out in my parts, at the moment i just use rochas man, and abercrombie fierce (uk), and that 3rd spot, my go to scent i'm really struggling to find any scent that inspires me enough (le male, code, terre d hermes, burberry, none sit well with my body), at the moment i'm relying heavily on rochas, which is enjoyable, but i know i'm overplaying it as i never smell it anymore, would be nice to add la nuit in for a day or two when called for as i'm a huge fan of the scent, and I think there are so many other nicer night time fragrances to find that daytime in the winter. I'm 21, living in a cold winter climate, may try la nuit in the day and see how it fairs, I do usually dress with a nice jumper and shoes, so it could fit the part.
