    Was at the supermarket today and the woman who works behind the counter said ,"that's a great cologne your wearing, what is that?". It was GEIR by Geir Ness..

    Well, some of them were about 5 minutes after application, others about 1 hour. But I can still smell its sillage on myself after 6 hours as well

    La nuit de L'homme again. This one is an attention seeker/bringer indeed. A person wearing this one will get noticed. I don't know about the others but on my skin it's sillage is great, almost Joop! Homme like.

    Gucci PHII has been one of my main frags ever since it came out, so by virtue of opportunities TO BE complimented on it... it's had the most positive reactions. I feel as if I have to spray it on and then make a mad dash to be around people if I expect anyone to be able to smell it. I haven't been wearing it much at all in recent months. I think I'll do that today.


    For 2k11, I'd have to say my most complimented frag would be Caron's 3rd Man

    Got my first ever compliment today. At 50 years of age I had resigned myself to never getting one! I went to an office for a short meeting and it was staffed by 3 ladies. I concluded my business and left. After 10 minutes I realised I had forgotten something I should mention so I returned. I was leaving when one of them called out " hey, Mr indianwells, what cologne are you wearing? Me and the other girls think it's really yummy!"

    Thank you Aventus!

    at first I just thought wtf about this, but I get a comment almost every time I wear it. That scent really has something about it...

    It's fairly obvious that Aventus and La Nuit are the winners for compliments among the releases of the last two years. IF that's one's objective.

    Ive been enjoying the development of Versace Dreamer in this cold weather and apparently others have as well....I play poker for a living and every time I wore Dreamer I got comments and questions from at least two female card dealers about what I am wearing... La Nuit comes off more floral from my skin and I actually enjoy YSL's La Libre better.....as far as others reaction Libre has been better received....
    CDG 3 (The one you CAN'T find anywhere) for trade.

    La Nuit..... gets a lot of silent compliments. The trick is not to wear too much because it can get cloying, but 1-2 sprays of this.. you're set. This has to be the biggest gem in my collection as a college student. Just wish I could find another one like it... that just wow'd me when I first smelled it.
    Top 5:
    1) La Nuit De L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent
    2) Lumière Noire pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian
    3) Royal Oud by Creed
    4) One Million by Paco Rabanne
    5) Allure Homme Sport by Chanel

    A few months with no compliments, then 2 days in a row!

    Yesterday, 2 of my female employees made comments about how great I smelled. I was wearing Tauer L'air Du Desert Marocain.

    Tonight, the girl who brought my beer to the bandstand breathed in deep and said I smelled wonderful. Montale Aoud Lime.
    TOP 5
    1. Montale Wild Aoud
    2. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    3. Montale Red Vetyver
    4. Montale Aoud Lime
    5. Le Labo Vetiver 46

    Friend- "What cologne do you have on? It's really good and different"
    Me- "It's called Aventus"
    Friend -"Aventus?" *with a confused look on his face*
    Me- "You can't find it in Sephora"
    Friend- "So where can I find it at...Marshall's or Macy's?"
    Me- "no it's a very expensive cologne and they don't sell it there"
    Friend - "like how much?"
    Me -"over $200"
    Friend - "NOOOO WAYYY.....no wonder it is soo good...man I need to find this cologne!"

    Yes, it's olfactory fatigue. I personally didn't have this problem with Aventus but many do.

    If I had a scent on I find mediocre or boring and was getting compliment from women I would probably not take their compliments very highly. You really think this generic smelling sh#t is good, or did you just want to get my attention?!

    Of the scents I have tried so far here is my list of most compliments.

    1. My own woodsy fragrances (Many compliments from men too)
    2. Black XS (This was before I discoved niche and DIY perfumery. Only compliments from younger women/girls)
    3. Hinoki CdG (Get the most compliments from the "cooler chicks")
    5. Straight to Heaven by Kilian
    6. Acqua di Parma
    7. Possets Testosterone
    8. New York by Parfums de Nicolaï

    Cool Water used to be my only cologne. And people like it.

    I got into dozens of other more unique and sophisticated colognes, but in the end Cool Water is the only one that I personally find that women consistently like.

    I get the most compliments by far from women with Bleu de Chanel. Men however ask me the most when I'm wearing Rochas Man. Probably because both of those on me have monster sillage. I also get female compliments quite often on Green Irish Tweed and Himalaya. The only thing ever said to me while wearing Aventus was " Did you spill gasoline on yourself?" LOL
