    For the record, Givenchy Pi is right up there with Le Male as my most complimented fragrance. If Givenchy Pi is applied correctly and you wear it with confidence, IMO its THE panty dropper
    How would you apply Pi?

    The most complimented fragrances of the dozens I've worn are Terre d'Hermes and Joop!. Sadly, neither are on my top ten list. If you're going for compliments, you need to remember that people have to be able to smell you in order to comment. This is likely one reason why loud frags like Le Male garner so much feedback, while quieter ones don't.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I'm almost to admit it, but (being married and working from home, so limited opportunity) my greatest compliment-getter is pretty much anything that is Bay Rum. The wife absolutely adores it on me

    Fair enough!
    I don't mind there isn't much talk about Chic, that way I enjoy it more before others join the conversation and will say "it is boring.." All the popular (most talked about) colognes seem to suffer from these kind of replies here on Basenotes.
    Acqua di Giò is my guilty pleasure. What's yours?

    Got a compliment on Kristiansand New York the other day. First time I ever wore it too.

    I get the most compliments with Chanel fragrances... particularly Egoïste Platinum, Allure Homme and Allure Homme Sport. And lately I've been wearing Lacoste Essential and got several compliments already.

    And another special mention is Christian Dior Dune pour Homme. It's so mild and fresh, and the ladies seem to appreciate that subtlety. Needless to say, I got tons of compliments with it.

    What's funny is that my Creed GIT is my most expensive, and yet it gets me the least compliments. And yeah, a lot of girls think it's Cool Water. I know basenoters know so well that it does NOT smell the same as Cool Water, but hey I guess most people around me can't tell the difference.

    I recently got a Creed MI as a gift, but as I mentioned in another thread, I'm not sure if it's the real thing. And surely it didn't get me any compliment as of yet... even my own nose find it too mild to appreciate. But again, I might just have got a fake.

    Lately I've been referring to my #1 (Montale Wild Aoud) as my secret weapon. Quite literally every time I wear it someone stops me to say I smell wonderful.

    It feels close to the skin but an employee told me that she loved how it didn't strike her as strong (aka Cologne Guy) but when she would walk where I had just been she could smell little wafts of it in the air.
    TOP 5
    1. Montale Wild Aoud
    2. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    3. Montale Red Vetyver
    4. Montale Aoud Lime
    5. Le Labo Vetiver 46

    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.

    Too funny!

    Aventus elicits a few "You smell great!" comments. Terre d'Hermes is loud, long lasting and quite manly and garners many compliments but it has to mellow out for a few hours and is a maximum of two sprays!

    Best results I've had in the summer recently were with BN9's Brooklyn. That sweet star anise top note (which is EXACTLY what it is, it's anethole by HPLC :-) ) seems to be really well-received by the ladies in my life.

    If we're talking drop for drop, dollar for dollar, the best luck I've had was with Varvatos's Original but that's only with a woman who knew me well and was in close proximity. She loved the stuff! Shame it hasn't much projection after 15 minutes. I wish they made an EDP! I suppose I could concentrate it down...hmmm!

    Like many in this thread I'm getting a great response for Aventus. Had a girl in work sniff me every time she walked passed me saying how great I smelled. The BIGGEST surprise came when my dad said he liked it, he never likes any fragrances as they normally just make him sneeze (allergies)

    My only regret when buying Aventus is not buying a bigger bottle!

    wore Le Male again today, again got like 3 compliments.

    honestly the only time i havent received a compliment on le male when i wore it was when this girl came over to my hosue for a date. i guess she didnt say anything becaues she was shy, because the next day when i was talking to her friend, my date told her friend the following "im handsome, charming, and smell SOOO good"

    all hail the holy grail!!!

    I picked up Dreamer in my most recent BN exchange, and was sort of disappointed by it. I shelved it after a few frustrating wears. I'll dig it out and try it again

    Was complimented by a female friend of mine a couple of weeks ago when she gave me a hug. I was wearing CK Euphoria. Couldn't believe it. It's my most boring & worst projecting scent!
