    If you don't mind me asking, what age group are you? I'm 20 I find almost anything garners compliments well if you just play it off well enough. Pure Malt last saturday was on fire though that really is a ridiculously good fragrance. You have to understand that to the average person almost all cologne will smell "good" enough to compliment on. Getting compliments tends to just revolve around your body language and comfort with the fragrance. The only time a fragrance will struggle to get compliments is if it reminds the person of bad experiences/people or they just really detest a single note in it.

    I agree with this statement whole-heartedly. If I've noticed anything over the last 2 months (and I've gotten a ton of compliments...maybe like 25 or something) it's that just about any fragrance is compliment-able. If you think it smells nice, there is certainly someone else in the world who will agree with you. And if you wear something identifiable, then you've just quadrupled your probability of being complimented. I think the most important variable is actually application: wear too much and you'll rub people the wrong way; wear just enough and in the right place and you'll be a compliment deflecting machine! I'm a lot less heavy on the trigger nowadays as a result....

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    The new lady in my life has let me know (repeatedly, with gusto) that A*Men Pure Havane is her favorite. She also loves Chergui, A*Men, Ormonde Man, M7, Allure Homme Sport, Dior Homme, DH Sport, and, surprisingly, Encre Noire

    I usually get my compliment here and there at least 4 out 7 days a week. However, today was the perfect storm. I had just gotten to work and was turning my computer on when a female co-worker walked into my office and said "Dang, it smells good in here" I told her thanks and walked to Lab area where 4 other coworkers were standing and went crazy on complimenting my scent of the day. Later today, I walked accross to the street to eat lunch with my wife and as soon as I got there four of her coworkers commented on how good I smelled. That's almost all the women I came in contact with today. I never imagine to have that kind of affect today. You must wonder what could cause such chaos. It's actually a little concoction I made up today but seems to work better than they do separately and they are great fragrances LE LABO ROSE 31 AND BLACK AOUD BY MONTALE. I smelled the aoud on me but the Rose seemed to project more as they were saying it was something amazing floral with something dark beneath.
    Love someone today and it will come back to you ten folds

    Just a few days ago I popped into my bank to deposit some money. I approached the very pretty female teller, told her I was making a deposit and removed the cash from my wallet and placed it in the window tray. Next thing, her coworker passes by and comments on the lovely smell. She then says to me "your money smells good". I ask her what does it smell like and at that same time her coworker steps over and they both agree "incense". Then I rem that the previous night I had left the cash notes next to my bottles of Ormonde Jayne Man and Isfarkand. When I came home I sniffed the surface of my dressing table and the lovely spicy smell of OJ man still lingered on and was really classy.

    Got a compliment for my Nautica Voyage, well not exactly but I'd take it. This girl who was my lab partner, I am in college, thought I wore Hollister cologne, I was a bit mad at first comparing the Nautica to that clothes store, but then I figured hey, someone can at-least smell the scent. Usually with this scent, not many would take heed to it, as it is pretty subtle, I am happy, she said I smelled preppy and such, I didn't mind. And she wasn't, I give you that.

    Got a nice compliment from the lady serving lunch at my college today. I had put on about 6-7 sprays of Aventus in the morning, but I can never smell it on me, and I have an apparently 'weak batch.' In fact, throughout the day I only kept smelling traces of Tobacco Vanille from the night before! When she asked what it was, I told her Aventus, but now I'm starting to wonder what she was actually smelling...

    Don't you shower or change clothes

    Is Aventus still the latest trend here? haven't checked in a while. I'm thinking of selling my 2.5 oz (supposedly good batch). I wore it a few times but it's not really clicking with me.

    Not surprised by this, my guess is she smelled the aventus though, It has the same effect on me as well. Can't smell anything and people are like wow what is that???? As far as Tobacco Vanille that stuff has nuclear sillage and Longevity but since you showered the sillage from the scent was dead..

    I started wearing Santal by Fragonard daily about three weeks ago (I thought I'd give it a go as an inexpensive Autumn daily scent), and I'm not exaggerating when I say I've received compliments on it from almost every single person I've spoken to since then, male and female. I've even had random people on the train to work and in cafes and restaurants asking me to write the name down for them. A very positive result!

    Otherwise, of the many, many fragrances I've used over the years, I've received the most compliments on Original Vetiver by Creed, Tam Dao by Diptyque (which I think has superficial similarities to the Santal), L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme, and Synthesized Musk by Main + Goetz.

    I think part of the appeal of these fragrances is that they're all a little bit unusual in some way (to the untrained nose anyway), and they're also reasonably rarely encountered by the layperson. They stick out a mile from all the generics the people around me are wearing, and of course it helps that they mostly have pretty good sillage.

    I suppose selecting a fragrance to get you noticed (especially by the ladies) is a bit like selecting clothes for that purpose, or even a car; copy everyone else and you'll be a nobody, but go your own way, with confidence and style, and you'll really make an impression.

    Oh, also... I recently doused myself in Allure Edition Blanche by Chanel while browsing a department store, and received three compliments within as many hours (first from the female friend I met afterwards, then from a waitress in the sushi restaurant where we had lunch, then from my flatmate when I got home). I would buy a bottle based on that result alone, however I think it smells a little too much like a cheaper version of my beloved Creed Original Vetiver, so I'm going to give it a miss!

    Got my haircut today and got complimented. The woman cutting my hair asked what cologne I was wearing, and I was like "Oh no... am I wearing too much?!" She said no, and that it was really really good and wanted me to write the name of the cologne down for her. Strange, normally I don't get compliments...

    Considering that all niche fragrances that I have, I acquired in last 2 months, it's obviously something that I won long time. That is Fierce from A&F. That's my most complimented scent but I have it for 3 years. That is gonna change soon.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    I just got back from Iraq so some of the guys I deployed with wanted to go to the strip club. As we were sitting there with two girls they both commented that someone smelled really good and started sniffing around to see who it was. Long story short, I was wearing Creed's Silver Mountain Water which they both commented that they really liked.

    Now I wonder what I will catch more flak for: 1) Talking about going to a strip club on BN or 2) Wearing a $200 scent to a strip club, LOL.

    I was at a CVS pharmacy check-out counter with my 11-year old son on Friday night. The clerk said:

    "I don't know what you're wearing, but it smells really good." She looked to be around 25 or so.

    I said "thanks".

    She replied "And that's a real compliment too, because I'm pregnant and just about everything I smell makes me really sick".

    I said "It's called Creed Aventus".

    "Well, it smells really good".

    I also got a compliment on Marc Jacobs BANG in Church on Sunday AM.

    Yes, but it's never really strong. I got one of the great batches (A01 or something) right off the bat about a year ago (8/10). About 3 sprays lasted me 9 hours that day, and then I put one more spray on my chest before heading out that night. Wife loves it too, and it is growing on me over time. The compliments help!

    I'll guess a4210e01, even if that's not the batch the strength of aventus from last year is unmatched IMO compared to the most recent batches. I currently have A42b11N01 and it's probably the closest thing to the batches of last year. I get great longevity and lots of compliments...

    out of all my scents the ONLY compliments i have ever received were from Aventus, 1 Million and Allure Homme Sport.

    When i was checking in at the airport, the 2 cute air hostesses that were behind the counter serving me started whispering to each other then they turned round and asked me "please tell us what fragrance your wearing its beautiful"........ It was Allure Homme Sport. They even got me to write it down LOL. Allure Homme Sport seems to gain the most compliments even with males asking what it is as well. Aventus comes in at close second though

    Great blog. Thank you for the information. I will definitely be checking these out after Christmas. I'm presently getting some Le labo exclusives to try, Poivre, Musc, Aldehyde and Baie Rose. Then I have committed to a friend to split some Mecca Balsam and another from that line. Only then, will I be able to send for some samples from this house. I'm intrigued by the one you mentioned, the musc, and Vanilleville. Have you tried any of these others?
    Love someone today and it will come back to you ten folds

    Aventus was just ridiculous for me last weekend. I went out with a few friends to a club, I had at least 12 compliments, including two girls who nuzzled into my neck, and two of my guy friends recalling how good I smelled when I was hanging out with them a few days after.

    I'm happy I love this fragrance too

    Just felt like I needed to add my most complimented fragrance.

    Tom Ford Black Orchid

    Every time I wear this one out, I've been told You smell "Delicious", "Yummy", or "Amazing"

    Even though technically it's a woman's perfume, this was on the Men's section at Nordstrom so I was surprised.
    "Good, bad, I'm the guy with the gun."

    The guy who sold it to me told me it was A32***01?

    But I think its actually C42B11N01. It was from tim coons, or thesnooc12's decant. Its quite good, but that A32* sample I had is stronger, so exceptionally strong. If A32 was a 10/10, this is a 9.

    Thank you for the compliments to my blog posting "On My Cologne Quest Had To Stop & Ask For Directions" I enjoyed writing it.

    And, Yes, I have tried Liz Zorn's Transcendental Musc Pour Homme. It is a very clear white musc. For me- I prefer just a bit more pop. I have yet to sample the Vanilleville. I just ordered a lot more samples though from her. Am curious to try out Underworld and Green Oakmoss. I will have to sample Vanilleville too on my next order with her.

    Hmmm...the compliment I got the other day was so weird. A woman paused & stopped me while shopping & said I smell good, she grabbed my arm & brought me closer to her & she was like "wow, this is amazing...you smell like play-doh, I luv the smell of play-doh"...she smelled my neck for a few minutes while I explained what I was wearing & yep, all she got was play-doh, she loved it!! I was wearing Thierry Mugler Pure Havane...weird...

    Attractive woman in her forties started on a conversation at the Starbucks coffee counter where you mix the milk and sugar. "Excuse me, you smell amazing, what is that?". Encre Noire.

    I was in Saks yesterday, and sprayed on some Bond Harrods Amber. I then continued shopping in the rest of the mall, and had SAs at two different stores compliment me. One said "You smell AMAZING!" and the other "What are you wearing? It smells wonderful.".

    Got a few great comments on Creed MI last night. One girl told me I smelt "delicious. MI behaves a lot like aventus on my skin, I can't detect it but people can many hours after Ive sprayed it. It's a mystery with some of the Creeds I own.

    Aventus is easily my most complimented fragrance. People who've NEVER complimented me on my other fragrances have complimented me on Aventus. And I swear more women flirt and talk to me when I wear Aventus. I don't know if its Aventus or some placebo effect but that stuff works very well for me.
