    You got that right...i get a lot of: what is that you're wearing?(add strange look here) and i say the name of the niche in my best french (or italian if necessary) and they look puzzled and then i say: i paid more than 100$ for it and they say: oh it's fabulous!
    The thing is i have gotten very few complimets for niches but those scents i mentioned are the ones that not only i use the most, but get loads of compliments.
    Like most basenoters, i do wear one different frag everyday,and sometimes even more than one in a single day!

    I get a lot of that myself, especially with the stuff from Oriscent.

    My (female) friends have commented on these fragrances: Recently, Terre d'Hermes (one of my biggest hits), seconded by L'Eau Bleue, KenzoAir and Aqua. B*Men was also nicely complimented last year. Several years ago, Body Kouros and Live Jazz garnered many compliments as well. Hanae Mori and mat:male were also very much appreciated.

    Scents like M7, Kouros Cologne Sport, both by YSL were much less noticed, as were L'Anarchiste and L'Iinstant (I may not wear them as well).

    Essentially then, what people like (at least at the office) are fresh, aquatic, fruity scents with restrained spice.

    My take.

    1. Dolce and Gabbana (mistaken for jean paul gaultier)
    2. Eternity for men

    Never had a compliment from Armani City Glam for men, nor Lacoste Pur Homme – both not to anyones taste, other than maybe a chav. They’re sporty or just plan foul. Obsession wasn’t great either. Jazz was ok first 6 months then it turned to something Yardley might produce (remember GOLD?)

    I’m going down the manly leather/pine/smoke route next, wish me luck, I may pull a squirrel

    Benetton Colors Uomo by Benetton (Believe it or not!)

    And my number one compliment-getter this year:

    H.O.T. Always by Bond No. 9

    Default Re: Your most complimented frags this year from the opposite sex

    In no order:

    Chrome
    Rive Gauche
    Gucci ph
    Kouros
    Chanel pour monsieur


    Not all of these frags are my 'crowd pleasers', but they have to be put on my list because, frankly, I don't wear my 'safe' frags very often. For example, Reaction, Platinum Egoiste, Tommy 10, Polo Black, L'Eau D'Issey, TM Cologne: these would garner me the most compliments if I wore them more often (or at all). Fortunately for me, I spray what I want these days- yes, this means that I sometimes end up going out in Antaeus or Knize Ten. On the other hand, smelling good to other peoples' noses has really done nothing for me in the past except for the occasional compliment. I would feel silly wearing low-rider jeans to a bar even if everyone told me they looked great; in the same vein, I feel silly wearing Reaction even though I know that most girls adore it.

    I can't wait to meet someone wearing something with substance... love at first smell!

    Let's see..

    All time...V'E Versace, I've been wearing this for 8 yrs. and always without fail get I get compliments on it.

    this year...Bleecker St. by Bond No.9

    I've only owned Bvlgari Au the Rouge for 2 months now and will easily be my most complimented fragrance next year. I have never got so many compliments in a two month span...I love this fragrance..it has easily moved into my top five now..

    Not just this year, but i think my most complimented fragrance ever is Millesime Imperial, but this one really bugs me because while i dont smell it on myself after a few hours, others can certainly notice it after a long day, so i'm unable to enjoy it as much as them, truly is sad as i really love this uplifting aroma-aromatherapy at its best.

    Others:
    Body Kouros
    Rochas Man
    Mat Male
    Current top 5:
    1. MDCI Chypre Palatin
    2. Guerlain Arsene Lupin (Dandy)

    3. Roja Dove Enigma Parfum Pour Homme
    4. Roja Dove Vetiver Extrait
    5. Guerlain Heritage (any formulation)

    For me this would be Boss's Baldassarini. After that Creed's Tabarome. Then Creed's GIT.

    Sometimes I wonder if women like to smell what they actually want to wear. Though I'm sure the gf has a different set of preferences than the woman in the elevator. Could that be why men's fragrances have been converging over time to women's fragrances?

    Drakkar Noir. D'oh!

    I hate when that happens. Of all the great selections, and its Drakkar that gets the cheese.

    Got rid of it though, couldnt abide it in the long run.

    Hey, at least I left it on a good note. My last one night stand, maybe.

    That long list above aside for a moment, though, here are the scents that I dearly love that NEVER seem to get me compliments, no matter the case:

    Iquitos (Dark and rosy, kinda like Voleur de Roses and Ungaro III.)
    Kiehl's Original Musk (Many more people say, "You smell like suntan lotion.")
    Halston 1-12 (I love it, but, apparently, no one around me notices.)
    Dali for Men (" -- must be too avant-garde or something.)
    CKOne (So unisex that perhaps it's just a feel-good scent.)
    CKBe (Apparently, this one's pretty much the same.)
    CKOne Scene (Ditto that again, Fred.)
    Aqua Allegoria Mentafollia by Guerlain (I happen to LIKE smelling like high class Scope, but no one else gives a crap.)
    Must de Cartier Pour Homme Essence by Cartier (Have only been asked, "Hey, are you wearing perfume today?")
    L'Instant Pour Homme by Guerlain (Ditto that. What a pity -- I love this scent.)

    As always, disregard most of what I say. It's not worth your heart health to actually worry about what a 23 year old guy from Kansas thinks. Even if he is really ridiculously good looking.
