    Spot on. If you asked the ladies here on basenotes the results would be very different. I hate candy smells in perfumes and while I occasionally enjoy powder on myself I don't know if I would on a male. My preferences in male scents very much agree with those of AutumnLeaves.

    Jane Does are the reason why the likes of Acqua di Gio, L'Homme, and 1 Million dominate the sales charts. Heck I have 2 of these 3 because my gf loves them (and she loves AdG too). I love to sit in M7 all day but she doesn't care for it
    But her favorite is Muscs Koublai Khan so that's a win-win.

    1.) subjective
    2.) by my experience - aromatic, woody aromatic but all in all fresh - for instance in my case considering women, that is what they liked the most on me - Davidoff Cool Water, azzaro silver black, boss in motion black, dirty english, cerruti pour homme, versace pour homme, Bvlgari Aqua, Carolina Herrera Chic for men etc. I've bolded up the ones that made the most impact on women both qualitatively and quantitatively.

    It would seem, not that the women actually LIKE those scents in general as much as they like those scents on ME! So obviously they go well with my skin chemistry, character, looks or whatever.

    honorable mention - Gucci Envy for men, YSL La Nuit De L'Homme, Moschino Uomo.

    There is still a lot of debate about pheromones, it's still quite a lot of "yes", "maybe" and "no's" among scientists.

    Jo Malone Amber and Lavender got me some compliments right in the door to work today.

    When I first got YSL L'Homme I loved it and so did everyone around me.

    By far it is my signature scent will never be without it. As well as it always garners plenty of compliments, from female co-workers saying I smell good, to male coworkers asking me what scent I'm wearing, to women walking behind me in the mall running to me saying you smell very good (this has amazingly happened many of times).


    Versace Man Eau Fraiche also gets compliments.

    I feel as tho Dolce & Gabbana The One, and Rochas Man would also get a lot of compliments if they projected more.

    I nearly got mauled by 3 Women one night while waiting in town for my friends. All 3 couldn't stop smelling me - Rochas Man. Also, seem to get a lot of compliments while wearing YSL La Nuit, but think everyone does with that dirty dirty fragrance.

    [QUOTE=Connoisseur;1253773]I had a dinner date interrupted last week by a waitress that wasn't our own. Apparently I had walked by her coming in and she just had to know what fragrance I was wearing. She was so cute and apologetic for the interruption. I told her it was Millesime Imperial by Creed. She smiled and handed me a piece of paper and a pen asking if I could write down the name for her. She asked me where I got it and how much it cost me so I told her about Ebay and roughly the price to expect to pay. She shrugged it off saying she would pay anything to have her boyfriend smell like that.

    Creed MI is by far my most complemented as of late. Six months ago's champion was probably Geir, closely followed by Fluid Man, Lanvin l'Homme and Mediterraneum.

    This Fragrance goes rancid very quick and its far too sweet, Most of the times I have worn it people think I must be gay or trying to hide very bad B.O. The fragrance which still and always gets the females going in my own experience, and belive me I have a wardrobe of fragrances which would buy a few bespoke suits from Saville Row, is actually, one of the cheapests and most profound fragrances. Every woman and even men (may be I do look a bit gay) LOL, is Rochas Man. Another which gets women especially in stores, when you just passing them is Noir.

    For now, no scents get compliments.

    They are more attracted if you have a masculine look, the scents they know are only temporary

My very first lover wore Stetson. Now, I can pick up on the smallest whiff of it and it instantly changes my perception of the man wearing it. It induces instant, um, we'll say "snuggly" blush-inducing feelings. I wish more men wore it....or maybe that's a bad idea

    Well, I know one man Stetson worked well for! I never claimed Stetson is a high quality juice....just that it's scent association has an effect on me. I stand behind Stetson Axe on the other hand, UGH, any of that nasty stuff would have me running away, repulsed, so I definitely agree on that one!

    I think a lot of females would love the smell of Rochas Man. I just got the scent Sun and my girlfriend hates sweet scents but she continues telling me that it smells real good. The scent is enticing to women.....if it had more projection I'm sure this scent would be able to grab a womans attention quickly in a good way.

    Most chicks love La Nuit but i got my first anti-compliment on it last night.

    Was on a first date when she sniffed me and said "It's too sweet"

    I asked what she liked and she said woody scents-she's in her 30's so that is a major factor I suppose.

    That's fine with me-I'll hit her with one of those next time-maybe I'll knock her socks off with LDDM

    I guess La Nuit will be more for the younger crowd? Or perhaps its just subjective due to personal perferences hahaha. But it is really a little sweet though. IMO its more suited for nightspots.

    How long does the original usually last on you? I swear it vanishes on me after around half an hour (If I'm lucky). When I sampled it in the shop it seemed a lot stronger, bought it online and now questioning if it might be a fake or just a bad batch.

    Again, Creed Aventus made it.

    I just can't believe how women get crazy about this stuff.

    I work with a lot of women, and everyday I get comments.

    And apparently, the stuff is really strong. Even if I cannot smell it on me, they can still smell it.

    Now, I only apply 2-3 sprays to the chest max.

    I have also bought GReen Irish Tweed last week and my wife felt in love with this scent right at the first sniff.

    However, I haven't tried yet at the office.

    But for the moment Aventus worth the 300 $

    The ratio $/positive sexy female coworker is very high with this scent

    La Nuit easily lasts 4-5 hours on me

    Maybe one of the ingredients is giving you olfactory fatigue (fake is possible i guess depending on the source)

    Try an experiment- apply, go out for the evening, and ask someone every hour of so if they can smell it

    I've received about 5 positive remarks today on Armand Basi in Blue.

    I don't know who the nose behind this is, but it smells like an Alberto Morillas creation to my nose. (I know he is the credited nose for Armand Basi in Red.)

    This fragrance gets no love in the reviews section of BN, but I think it's quite nice.

    The projection is a strong medium, and the longevity is eternal.

    How many sprays, and where did you apply it, if i may ask?

    I've heard people saying 2/3 sprays of Aventus is enough but i've applied four sprays in the past (2 on neck, 2 on chest) and i haven't been able to smell it after an hour, neither have the people around me.

    Hi guys. I tallied your thread.

    This was originally intended as a personal project, so a few scents are conspicuously absent. Namely Bulgari Black, Gucci Envy, and Chanel Egoiste because I've tested them and decided they're not for me. Also L'eau D'Issey and Burberry Brit because I own them. Furthermore, tried to omit scents that are widely regarded as "Old man" scents or are famous for giving the "cigars and whiskey" vibe because that's not me.

    I tried to only count actual compliments, not recommendations from the various "panty dropper" threads that got merged into this one. I also discounted compliments from old ladies, 3-year-olds, and men.

    Green Irish Tweed 123
    Aventus 92
    Millesime Imperiale 84
    La Nuit de l'Homme 83
    Allure Homme Sport 61
    Body Kouros 61
    Acqua di Gio pour Homme 55
    A*Men 54
    Silver Mountain Water 52
    Terre D'hermes 51
    Dior Homme 46
    Rive Gauche pour Homme 45
    Platinum Egoiste 44
    Cool Water 43
    Rochas Man 43
    Allure Homme 40
    Armani Code 40
    Musc Ravageur 39
    Dolce & Gabbana pour Homme 37
    M7 36
    Le Male 33
    Black Aoud 31
    Burberry London for Men 31
    Chrome 29
    L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme 26

    So what's important to note here is that Green Irish Tweed Has been getting compliments on this thread for about 8 years now. Aventus is in strong second place with less than 2 years of compliments! There has to be fucking unicorn blood in that stuff or something.

    Anyway, since people have been complaining about how bad women's taste in scents is throughout this entire thread, I decided to cross-reference the above list with the ratings on this site. The values below are

    (Positive reviews/Negative reviews) x (Total Reviews/Median reviews) + # of Compliments

    So basically it's the ratio of positive:negative reviews weighted to account for the scent's popularity or lack thereof. Below are all scents that scored above 10 with the number of mentions in this thread on the right. Since I used the previous tallies, this only includes niche scents mentioned within the last 20 or so pages.

    Default Re: Which scent gets you the most female compliments?

    I noticed a reaction when I tested Tom Ford for Men last week (I found it pleasant but not especially interesting). No one commented on the scent as such but women of all ages complemented me on something else, e.g., my Australian messenger bag, my dog, etc. On the other hand, my dog attracts a huge amount of female attention. One day I left her tied up outside a store for a minute and, when I came out, half a dozen very attractive teenage girls were photographing her with their cell phones.

    This was originally intended as a personal project, so a few scents are conspicuously absent. Namely Bulgari Black, Gucci Envy, and Chanel Egoiste because I've tested them and decided they're not for me. Also L'eau D'Issey and Burberry Brit because I own them. Furthermore, tried to omit scents that are widely regarded as "Old man" scents or are famous for giving the "cigars and whiskey" vibe because that's not me.
    that list is very extensive bro! I was just wondering about the number of compliments and all a few days back and this pop'ed out. Well done man! Really appreciate your effort in doing something like this
    Current Top 5:
    1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
    2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
    4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
    5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    Hmm, maybe I will look at Tom Ford for Men again. I did like it but probably got put off by the BN comments that Tom Ford Extreme was much better (I have a sample of Extreme but haven't used it yet). Plus the regular is only about half as much. Seemed smooth and refined. Not every scent has to be a shock wave though.

    I own all of the top 5... except for the #1. Meh, I always felt it smelled just like Cool Water. Got a sample, wore it, and it continously got mistaken for Cool Water so I decided not to buy it. Maybe I should take another wiff again...

    Green Irish Tweed 123
    Aventus 92
    Millesime Imperiale 84
    La Nuit de l'Homme 83
    Allure Homme Sport 61
    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

    To me, Green Irish Tweed does not smell much at all like Cool Water. There is only a general family resemblance, which makes sense, as they had the same father. Probably most women who complement GIT just register "great scent" and a few who know Cool Water think, "Great scent. Is it Cool Water?" This is a bit like being mistaken for one's more sophisticated, richer, better dressed, and better looking older brother. It's a mistake a woman probably wouldn't make twice.
