    Here's a couple from me:

    KC REACTION - Oddly I find that this is the ultimate chick magnet. All girls really seem to love it. *

    True story --- I had one girl in particular (an HB10 for anyone that's read "the game&quot, no joke, lick my neck * . *She wouldn't stop hugging on me and said I smelled "delicious" and basically couldn't resist. *Needless to say - I bought the body wash the next day. *

    Problem is my best friend was there to witness this and he bought Reaction as well the next day (arrrgh two 3.4 bottles!!!!). *We both work together and im a witness that he never usually gets female compliments but girls now go out of their way to sniff him and say how amazing he smells. *

    Funny thing is that I didn't want to smell like him - we're around each other all the time (work) and thats all he wears. *I always had a rotation of 2-3 colognes but now it led me to look up new ones on the internet so I could have an edge. *That my friends is how I ended up finding basenotes and building my collection. *Which led me to:

    ROCHAS MAN - this one's a killer. *My gf loved it so much she bought me New Haarlem when I said it was similar but better.

    HANAE MORI - lots of compliments but I personally dont really like it, actually trying to get rid of it.

    Shockingly PARIS HILTON has gotten lots of female attention - it's actually good (it was free) but I just need to come up with a name I can tell people cause I'll get beat if I say Paris Hilton! *Currently I say it's something I can't pronounce. *

    I do find that younger girls like the fruity, fresh, "normal" stuff for the most part - some stuff that's a little different like Cristobal no one says anything about - at least to me. *

    Unfortunately Reaction is now killed for me cause ever since that story all my other friends bought it and when we're all together it's like the Kenneth Cole Reaction army coming at you - sorry to anyone that's been in our path - or in an elevator with us.

    Geir has gotten me the most compliments from women, but as far as scents that are attractive to women, which is what I assume you're looking for in this thread, I think it goes far beyond compliments. While Geir gets the most compliments, and I believe women like it, I don't think I've ever gotten any action wearing Geir. A*Men on the other hand generates noticeably fewer compliments than Geir (though still gets a decent number) but I tend to be extremely successful with women when I wear this. Envy too is like A*Men, though I am not successful to the same degree when wearing Envy (though still damn good). It could just be that I decide to wear A*Men when I'm going to be in a probable position to get some action anyways, but I think it's definately more than that. The stats for A*Men are really remarkable, and easily speak for themselves. So remember folks, enjoy the compliments but I would say that body language is even more important. Actions smell louder than words.

    ;D Hilarious!

    My take on this: I've found that a lot of women enjoy Gucci Pour Homme. I think they like the earthy, woody, smokey aspect of it. However, a bunch of them also like the more citrussy ones such as Eau d'Hadrien, Santa Maria Novella Melograno, Higher by Dior and Hugo by Hugo Boss.

    # 15 in this old post
    wherein I replied to
    the million dollar question of
    what turns women on:-


    COLOGNES/ BABE MAGNETS AND THEIR 'MISSION STATEMENT' *
    *
    1. QUORUM--If she's into leather. * Smells so bad, she's got to be a masochist! * *
    * Whip me, *beat me, *make me write bad checks---- *
    *
    2. *CREED'S ROYAL ENGLISH LEATHER----But do so with elegance and finesse. *
    *
    3. OLD SPICE--Her father probably wore it at some point. *(see also Aramis, Brut etc.) * So, *smell like him! * So many women *still want to sit on daddy's lap--- *
    *
    4. BOWLING GREEN---Especially if he wore shoes with tassles, *played golf and ignored the family.. . . *
    *
    5. GUERLIAN VETIVER--- Hot Damn! * *Man, *her father's loaded! * Marry her, quick! *
    *
    6. VERSACE DREAMER. *Mission statement: *I'm a poet, *with a poet's brooding melancholy . . . *
    *
    7. VERSACE by VERSACE: *I laugh at poets and losers. *I'm *rich, *ruthless in business, grey around the temples, *and I once fired Donald Trump. *
    *
    8. ROMA UOMO: *You are unapoletically masculine, she'll rip *your clothes off. NOW! *
    *
    9. LE MALE: Or queer eye for the straight guy, *the cologne bottle design episode. You rejoice in your feminine side-- *
    *
    10. DIPTYQUE (any): ---And so you could buy a boutique together and live happily ever after *
    *
    11. COTY (any): *Except you've just been evicted from your trailer park. *Good! *See if she comes through for you and lets you move in rent free. *
    *
    12. SALVADOR: *Cut to the chase, you only want her if she's an erotically frenzied wildcat. *
    *
    13. KOURUS: * But If she likes this *atrocity, she's even more perverted than you *imagined. * *Run awaaaayyy! *
    *
    14. A*MEN: * *Freud would have thought you stuck in the oral/narcissist phase, *but what did he know? *He should have paid you for counseling. * She better compliment your cologne and pick up the dinner tab while you surreptitiously smell yourself. * *
    *
    15. *ROCHAS MAN: Or A*men redux. *A vast improvement over that de-caf hype. Still it's so chocolate shake that you might attract jailbait. *Check I.D. *and have a *a good lawyer handy. *
    *
    16. PIPER NIGRUM: *Redundant if you're a waiter in an Italian restaurant, *but otherwise a masterpiece of seduction by LV. * *Think of it ! * You'll smell like a *wonderful dish of linguini with olive oil. *How many millions of women want to break their diet? *Can't miss.


    Happy Hunting, *
    *
    (just remember you're also the prey)


    ---------------
    * *
    BTW in addition to the above mentioned lunacy, I get tons of compliments on:

    a) The Fig Newton with a hint of leather ( John Varvatos)
    and
    b) The sun tan lotion/ Pina Colada ( Marc Jacobs)

    Maybe I could buy them with GIT and get a discount?


    Cheers,

    As of today it would be envy and rochas man. They have been battle tested and they always shine. But I think there are different styles or scent levels when it comes down to people. I know some people that's into bootleg frags and cheap stuff. They will comment on or even go crazy over anything that has sillage like axel body sprays,etc like axel but I'm not knocking it, and the high end stuff would be say coolwater, etc. Now we have the others that appreciate a nice smelling man,sometimes I hear women talking about some guys and how good they smell. So the cheap stuff and fakes might not work with them(not saying coolwater is cheap but its too common) as they have some knowledge about frags.. And check this out, I use to wear envy 3 times a week and don't get complimented by a certain female. But one day she do compliment me on it after months and she said her man wears candies because she likes it but she is a jealous type that likes to brag on her man about what they got and all, and I guess she got up the nerve and pushed her pride aside to admit that I do smell better than her man. So I'm thinking she liked the envy when I wore it months ago. And finally got the nerve to actually tell me. Did anyting make since. Maybe some people are shy to make a comment or there can be several reasons why some people don't.

    Two waitresses I know (on two different days) complimented me on Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto. The strange thing was, however, that I could barely smell it when wearing it and was wondering if anyone else could!
