    AdG got the most, but that was when I wore just that, before BN
    Rochas Man
    Varvatos
    Mugler Cologne--one girl said I smelled like Mr Bubble ( not necessarily a compliment, but an observation)
    Terre D'Hermes---"this is the way people should smell like"
    Angel---usually some version of "mmmmmm" or "that's nice, but too sweet for a man"

    I've been into the new stuff for a couple of months now and they've all gotten a compliment or three from the fairer sex. ....sex........

    It looks like MR has been getting compliments across gender lines by lots of us here.
    In my case I've been complimented by both straight and gay men for this one
    I'll also add Une Folie de Roses by Parfums de Rosine
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Based on this year alone, the last two months = Fuel for Life. I only wear it about 2-3 times a week, but EVERY time I get complimented. It's a scent that doesn't project very well, but has good sillage. So lady friends just lean in closer and closer to smell. One girl was actually just smelling me when I had to ask her what she was doing. She just politely commented "You smell tasty!"
    I have: Davidoff Relax, Dior Homme Sport, Boss Selection, Azzaro Visit, and Creed MI (will provide # on bottle for verification) available.

    Looking for the following: DG The One, Himalaya, YSL L'Homme, John Varvatos (not vintage) Canali For Men or Paypal.

    I think that French Lover and Noir Epices and perhaps even Outrageous (and perhaps other Malle fragrances) are all about "application". The first time I tried French Lover, I felt that it was weak and watered down. However, the last few times I wore it, I tried the technique of spraying the fragrance at the same spot about 1/2 hour after the original application. It seems to amplify the sillage and bring out some of the nuances of the fragrance.

    Bottom line... great stuff!

    One comment I'll remember is when I wore Burberry London for the first time from a small decant. Went to the coffee shop next door to where I work. I ordered my coffee, the lady who helped me got my coffee and placed it down and started talking to me. In the middle of the short conversation I leaned forward to get my coffee and my shirt puffed out some London fumes.

    "What are you wearing that smells wonderful!"

    Later that day I found a place nearby that inexpensively sells designer scents and got a bottle.

    Other than that I've never gotten unsolicited comments, good or bad.

    While wearing Creed Original Vetiver the other day my boss said "You smell good. Is that aftershave?" When I told her what it was she said "It smells very natural". That's the best compliment I ever received and she had never even heard of Creed.

    I guess you have the same issue (or non-issue) as mine, only that mine is with GIT. I think it's just natural for this to happen... our noses become too accustomed to our regular fragrance that our perception of its longevity is diminished over time.

    The first time I used GIT, I could smell it when I woke up the next day. But then, after a week of using it every day at work, I could barely smell it 2 hours after putting it on... while surprisingly, at night my girlfriend still smells it on me, and she's crazy about it FWIW. Strange thing is that people around me at work don't seem to have been "immune" to the GIT smell, they always notice it, still... after like a month now that I've been using it every day!
    --------------------------------------
    Oh and the most compliments I got was when wearing Chanel Allure Homme (usually like "you smell good"), Chanel Egoiste Platinum (usually like "what's that cologne, it smells expensive") and Eternity for Men (this was back in college years, I never wear it now... it was mostly "you smell good, that's Eternity right?", a comment that I actually HATE, haha). The Creed GIT is not even in the top 3 yet because I just started using it last month when I discovered Creed.

    My "you-smell-very-nice" scents are Terre d'Hermes, M7, Cartier Declaration, B*Men, Basala, Happy for Men by Clinique, L'Instant pour Homme, Lolita Lempicka au Masculine, Obsession for Men and (believe it or not) Tommy for Him by Tommy Hilfiger (1994.).
    I noticed that the same people which give me compliments for Terre d'Hermes, give me compliments for Declaration as well; and it is quite understandable, I think. These two scents are pretty similar... In the long run, Ellena made both.
    I know that it is not a theme but I have to say that I've NEVER got any compliments for some fragrances I really like: Eau d'Hermes (1951.), Oscar de la Renta pour Lui (1981.), Cacharel pour Homme (1981.) and YSL pour Homme (1971.). (It should to sound ironicaly Maybe these scents are just too old for "the modern noses" of the people around me.
