I got a compliment on L'eau d'Issey a few weeks ago.
Sad thing is that she asked me if it was Axe...
Creed Himalaya, Creed Green Irish Tweed, Dior Homme
Creed aventus!!!!!!! Like nothing else....
Funny story, got complimented on my Light Blue the other day. Was with a couple of women and one said "my God, you smell so good, is that Acqua di Gio?" I responded that it was, in fact, Light Blue, by Dolce and Gabbana. I explained that while Acqua di Gio is popular and smells nice, I've never owned it. "It smells so good!"
2 hours later, as I was hugging her to leave, the other girl said "Oh she's right, you do smell good! Tell Giorgio he did a good job!"
Le Male ... a female pilot co-worker was pretty interested in staying around me all night and kept giving me a good sniff

Gucci Envy got positive feedback, Azzaro Silver Black, Cerruti Pour Homme, Davidoff CW, Joop! Homme! too but it is very recognisable. There is no rule in fact to what one will get a comment on. Boss in Motion Black got me an ˝you smell so nice˝. M7 and JPG Le Male got commented by my gay friend only, the latter in a manner ˝for a str8 guy you're wearing such a gay perfume˝, the first, M7 that is - ˝I wanna eat you˝ wich resulted with my ˝three meters away from me or you'll be kissing a fist˝
Kenzo PH is very underestimated I must say!

That's true...when used judiciously, Kenzo PH can be quite appealing. I've had people come up to talk to me and halfway through the conversation they'll pause to ask me what I'm wearing. Then they let me know know how much they like it. Its quite versatile as well; its not exclusively a summer aquatic like many of the rest.
I commented on this a few years back, and said Rive Gauche. Well, nothing has changed. I've more than doubled the size of my collection, and Rive Gauche remains my #1 compliment getter, far and away.

Had somebody excitedly ask who was wearing Cool Water today. It's a shame that I was wearing GIT...
I'm around alot of people in close quarters on weekends for my work and I typically get at least one compliment a night on my cologne no matter what I'm wearing. With all the talk about Le Male I decide to wear it Saturday night figuring I'll get multiple compliments on it. I didn't get one! LOL! Maybe next time I'll wear an extra spray or two since I kind of under sprayed thinking it was more powerful and don't wear it really ever so didn't want to offend anyone.
Also Dunhill Desire Blue and Armani Code Black.
I work as a flower importer wholesaler so I mostly deal with women and or/ gay men and the 3 above seem to be commented on mostly by women, while Issey Miyake's L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme Tommy Bahama Very Cool, and Lacoste Style in Play get the most comments from men.

Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that's easy. What's hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity.
Here's what works for me:
- Armani Code
- YSL La Nuit De L'Homme
- CK Intense Euphoria
- CK Eternity
YSL and Armani have both gotten me an extremely high number of compliments (think around 40 in the past month or so). I'm relatively new to wearing the CK scents, but I've gotten an "oh my god, you smell *really, really* good," and a "you smell happy."
But yes. I'll have to try Le Male! Girls really seem to like anything with sweet notes (vanilla, tonka bean, fruits, etc.).
However, it isn't only the cologne you're wearing that's important, but the attitude that you carry with that fragrance. If you go creeping around someone, the only acknowledgement you're going to get is a punch in the face.
Here is my top 5
Platinum Egoiste - Chanel
Aventis - Creed
Green Irish Tweed - Creed
I Am King - Sean John
I forgot to add Bulgari Black. I frequently have women say they want to eat me when I'm wearing it!
I really don't seem to notice Chanel Allure in all this. Where are Allure wearers? I myself plan to own it soon. And there's the Armani Code thing, I seem to evade it constantly whilst I should not for it is a classic, although quite overworn
Armani Code is definitely a favorite amongst women. Ive heard so many women say its there favorite fragrance on a guy, maybe more so then any other fragrance
My Current Fab Four Fragrances:
1) La Nuit De L'homme
2) Valentino Uomo Intense
3) Pure Malt
4) Le Male
theyr complimenting the scent. so that means they know ur wearing one and its not ur particular smell.
if they compliment the scent it means they dont like you as a man.
Okay, electrorock, your post makes no sense. Care to elaborate?
They compliment the scent because it smells great, and is just one reason out of many to be interested in you. If they compliment the scent it means they're letting you know that they've taken some amount of interest in you, or else they wouldn't say anything at all.
you dont get laid much or what?
All these things take away or weakens your natural scent and puts another scent or aroma in your skin. As far as I know, there are very few woman who go for the natural smell. The majority of woman would prefer a well spoken individual who is well groomed and has a good presentation. So to concise this statement and your next statement "you don't get laid much or what", The odds are that Mark may get more opportunities. Now, If he takes those opportunities or not, that is his own decision. Because "getting laid" does not mean you are a man by any means. There are many other characteristics, behavior, or acts that would concise who a man really is.
Of course this is just my opinion, and opinions are like butt...., everyone has one.
Love someone today and it will come back to you ten folds
I was complimented this week by a stranger on a fragrance I would've least expected -- Monsieur de Givenchy. Said she liked it, asked what I was wearing, and said that colognes usually give her a headache, but that this one did not. It's funny because up till recently I'd considered Monsieur de Givenchy to be sort of an "old man's fragrance" but I'd been reassessing it the last couple weeks, and this compliment definitely contributed to my reappraisal of it. I'm finally recognizing it for the classic excellence that it really is.
Or maybe you're just a psychotic lunatic who isn't using proper grammar? Not to mention you aren't even trying to clarify your argument.
Thank you, kingpin.
Anyway, I've also heard a lot of great things about Musc Ravageur. How're people finding it?
