    Such a wonderful one. Probably the best from Hermés (a winner!).
    I had it few years ago and kept getting only compliments.
    Thumbs up!

    Usually I'm in touch with women through phone (tooooo bad...), so when today my mother said I smell so really very good, I had a seldom good feeling. It was Penhaligon's Lavandula. I'm surprised that I like it that much either, as it was a wash-off the first one-two times I tried it.

    Women only complement good looking guys on their scents. Being a hideous slob and having worn most popular and connoisseurs frags in the last 5 years without word from the female sex, I don't believe scents do anything. Smell your favorite womens cologne on a troll and you will soon find that to be true.

    The better looking you are, the more they'll complement anything you wear. Women are fickle and don't particularly assert personal opinion on your ensemble if they're already following you around based on looks, money, power.

    Classic scenario:

    Vegas: I'm in an elevator with my guy friends wearing some nice scents and a group of girls come in. I was wearing Gucci Men II or something similar and these ladies started asking 'who IS that'? 'who smells so NICE?' They were a little tipsy. I'm quickly identified but then the reply is "Oh... its you...." followed by an uncomfortable pause... then they smell my friends it's "omg, Becky he smells nice too"

    I wear scents based on how they make me feel, no one else.

    Awwww, I'm sorry that happens to you and I can assure you all women are not like that. If you were smelling good and I was around I would compliment you for sure!

    And kudos to you for wearing what you love and what makes you feel good. I do the same and if others happen to enjoy it as well that's a happy bonus but that does not dictate what perfumes I choose to wear.

    all sarcasm aside, I've been complimented most on Creed Millesime and Creed GIT

    Others are Gucci Men II, Creed Original Vetiver, Creed Royal Water. My chemistry seems to do well with these fresh/sweet smelling EDT's. I can only wear 2 EDP's, Jack Black Signature and Bond 9 Coney Island.

    Last one is Angel Men - only when worn in winter

    Ferre For Him does well in rainy weather for some reason

    i guess its mostly about complementing the setting and the weather

    I have to say that I totally agree with you! The women who gave me emphatic compliments were already attracted to me. The women who weren't/aren't attracted to me.....they could care less about my really expensive Creed "lady killer"!

    On the flip side, a great fragrance on the wrong woman does nothing for me. She may smell really really nice but it won't change the fact that she's unattractive. A mediocre fragrance on a woman I'm CRAZY about...well....it will drive me crazy when I smell her fragrance on my clothes or on my furniture!

    Bottom line, there are some fragrances that are more appealing to the opposite sex. But if you don't have what it takes to attract someone, Aventus...GIT....etc won't help you. You'll just be an unattractive person with an appealing fragrance.

    By the way...I have gotten the most emphatic compliments wearing GIT. Women (who already liked me) have told me they'd jump my bones wearing that stuff. However, its too sharp and I don't wear it often.

    ^the most emphatic compliment lately was while wearing Creed Millesime Imperiale. She went out of her way to come talk to me and asked me what I was wearing. I acted like I didn't know what it was, made some comment like "oh i dont know it's just some sample I got from Niemans." She went on and on about how much she likes Creed GIT but her favorite is MI. We hit it off, she kept talking with her hands while wearing low cut top over her goodies, so that was nice. I could tell she was interested but when I asked, she said she had a fiancee, giving me the sad puppy dog look.

    Don't ask such questions, that puts women in a difficult situation. Perhaps she had the possibility of an affair in mind...
    Back to topic, maybe I should stop trying to mute my scents, wearing them under clothing and whatnot. I've got the opposite experience from shadidahs': they do come to me with funny ideas but most women don't say anything about my scents.

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

    Ok, I got one that I don't think has been mentioned, because it's increasingly rare.

    Dunhill Edition - I don't even know if they still make it, its been around since 1984 and I have to call the Dunhill Boutique on 5th ave in NYC to get them to send me a bottle every year or so. I've been wearing it since 1990 and I've literally had ladies in a full elevator say out loud "Wow, who is wearing that incredible scent??" Even though I'm a hetero Metro I get plenty of compliments from straight men, usually older executives.

    Now it's not exactly the sexiest scent, but I wear it when I'm doing business deals because it exudes confidence, success, and it mixes well with the scent of a fine cigar. I do think they sell it at Harrod's in the UK, now that I think about it. Think JR Ewing or Donald Trump.

    Go ahead and put me down for Terre d' Hermes and Hanae Mori too. Those are my everyday scents, and I get my fair share of compliments on those.

    Also Tom Ford, BVLGRI Black, and anything Theirry Mugler.

    Hi all, first post here after lurking for a few months.

    To add to shadidahs post/debate, I’m not the best looking guy but when wearing my most complimented scent I’ve never had a problem with striking up a conversation with women (or rather they start talking to me due to the nice scent) and so I think as long as you don’t look like the back end of a bus scents can improve your chances of hitting it off with a woman or at least getting a date.

    My all time number one compliment grabber… Issey Miyake L'eau D'Issey.

    Aventus is the scent that always gets compliments. It's not even my favorite scent, but every single time I wear it I get multiple compliments on what I'm wearing without fail.

    Often i worry when i get a compliment. I assume people are just "noticing" that i'm wearing fragrance - not that they love it.

    wore Clive Christian 'C' today for the first time (to test the tones on the dry down) - had one cougar follow me in one of the stores, never said a word, but i could tell she recognized it

    Amouage XXV.
    got some nice compliments again.
    I did the same while noticing Amouage Epic on a lady I met.

    Amouages.

    Other than my wife who often says, "You smell nice," I don't get too many compliments. I am pretty sure my wife only compliments me out of habit because of my cologne fetish. Sometimes I wonder if the reason I am not getting mega compliments is because I haven't applied enough of the scent, which leads to over-application, which leads to people probably thinking of me as Mr. Y. Spraysomuch. Such a vicious cycle!
    The few compliments I have received came from Polo Green, Angel Men, and Dior Homme Intense.

    I've actually gotten quite a few compliments from both men and women lately when I wear Clean Men. It's funny because I JUST finished the bottle after 4 years and I just started getting complimented on it! I picked up Clean Men Shower Fresh as a replacement because the price was right. I hope this gets me the same kind of attention!

    What is so magnificent about Jean Paul? Everyone says everyone is complimenting them on this fragrance...I don't get it. It doesn't smell that great if you ask me...a little too cloying or dense, were you wearing it during the day?

    And wouldn't everyone agree that Body Kouros undoubtedly beats Le Male? Or...?

    I love Le Male. The trick is in applying, ppl tend to overapply.

    Body Kouros does BEAT Le Male in my book also.
