    I´ve been adding new fragrances to my collection but none seems to receive as much compliments as this underrated gem.



    It´s getting very, very close to top my all-time best compliment getter, Xeryus Rouge.

    Chalk another one up for A*Men and GIT. I seriously am debating whether I want to wear A*Men around one particular co-worker of mine or not given she wouldn't stop talking about how really good I smelled for the first ten minutes of being there.

    GIT has been great to me, Amen not so much. Outside of my wife, I have not had a cologne compliment in a while, like 4 or 5 months. No biggie, I wear them for myself and her anyway. Aventus has been my biggest compliment draw over the past two years.

    I have to agree with the GIT as the ICON of attention getters. On St. Pat's Day this Past year I had a woman in a bar Physically Start hugging because I smelled so good, I'm sure there was some Alcohol involved..... On a more serious note Cologne is a small part of the Equation of Attraction. I would say in the Niche Model The 3 Top Creeds (GIT, MI and Aventus) are great compliment getters..... outside Niche Chanel-Platinum Egoiste, Paco Rabanne- 1 Million, D&G The One and Gucci Envy have all been attention getters. In the end it's your Confidence Level that women have a Sixth Sense of, so never hesitate or secong guess yourself when approaching a woman you're attracted to.

    Oh, and... a compliment:

    +1 for Gucci Pour Homme II from a lovely woman (in her early 30s? Just a guess, which probably means she's in her late 30s since I'm frigging clueless about guessing women's ages. Sorry, ladies, but you all look lovely and young to me, even when you're older than I am. I REALLY suck at guessing women's ages). Anyway... I got a nice compliment on Gph1 again today. I recently bought Aventus and I love it, but there's something about Gph I and II that I find so addictive. I just keep reaching for them in the morning.

    Allured by your compliments Hobbes22, Scent Intense (as you know so well) is a perfect cult fragrance for clubbing, is really chic and mysterious, a sophisticated and smoky (ambery) suede, i use to enjoy it in the darkest down town clubs when i'm wearing dark fine garments and i'm looking for something intriguing as a sinister lady of the night. Wonderful, this fragrance helps me to seize the prey. Hold on wearing it.

    I bought recently, Davidoff cool water, applied it and went out into the street away from the entrance about 50 meters down the street, and then two young women caught up and asked, "Excuse me, how is your perfume?" it was funny!

    Two compliments while on holiday:

    - First was from the housekeeper of where I was staying. I had thrown the empty bottle out and I noticed that she kept it. She told me "I like to keep this in my room. It reminds me of you and the summer" (I have been going over to stay there during the summer). The winner here? My highest compliment-getter by far, Terre d' Hermes.

    - Having applied some the day before, there was an after-scent on my t-shirt. I was in a very humid and muggy climate, temperature 45C (yes you read correctly!). Having taken off the t-shirt and after a 1.5hr swim in the sea, a female relative commented that "I smelt heavenly". What else other than Aventus.

    I was up in the air about Terre d' Hermes and was contemplating selling it, until a girl at my friends rooftop party (that I was only introduced to earlier) came up to me later that night and sniffed my chest unannounced.

    Also, New Haarlem definitely has gotten me quite a few interested sniffs while wearing it. Rarely does someone other than family actually tell me I smell good, but New Haarlem gets obvious looks of intrigue.

    Best attention getters I have found:
    1) Creed Aventus
    2) by Kilian Straight to Heaven
    3) A*Men Pure Havane
    4) A*Men Pure Malt
    5) Bleecker Street (Bond No. 9)

    - - - Updated - - -

    Of course, if you are good looking, you can wear your fathers old bottle of Hai Karate and get attention. And if you're ugly... well, there really isn't any fragrance invented yet that will get you where you need to go.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    5. Puredistance - Black
    6. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions

    It's true that it's easier to get attention from women if a guy is good looking, but if a guy isn't handsome, it's all about personality. Yes, personality with style to back it up... in which case, fragrance plays a part. I feel bad saying this, but, one of the least attractive guys I know is married to a gorgeous woman and it's easy to see why. He's funny and he's FUN! And it doesn't hurt that he has a good sense of style.

    Bleu de Chanel is a nice scent and I like it as well. I remember you posting here before about compliments you got wearing Bleu. It seems like you found your personal "holy grail".

    I think Aventus and Bleu "smell like what a man's cologne is supposed to smell like" in the few of the general public. That is why they are well liked.

    I've only had two occasions where a woman has commented on the fragrance I was wearing that I can remember, but probably because I haven't worn cologne much lately. The two that I remember were both friends, and they both had a similar reaction. The first was Prada Amber Pour Homme, this friend of mine told me she wanted to jump me right in the store (I bought the bottle immediately), and the second was Abercrombie Fierce (it was when the frag had just been released and A&F was still relevant) this friend walked down the street, literally, hugging me just so she could keep smelling it). Again, I'm not an aficionado of fragrances, but these are the two that I remember, neither of which I wear anymore. They are both modern scents to me, and I'm finding myself going more towards classics these days.

    I don't want to appear to be repetitious or biased, but Aventus, by far, gets me the most compliments by both men and women. Especially now during the hot weather. It seems to project so well. I am constantly told throughout the day how good I smell. It really does get you compliments. And not too many persons I know wear it. A plus for me.

    Not a compliment on something I was wearing at the time, but I find it interesting none the less.

    I was at Nordstrom looking for some GHPII as they showed it in stock online still. For about ten minutes I walked around the juice stand tying to figure out where it was hiding and smelling a few other secents. A well to do but shy looking older woman (early 70's) started to make her way to the cologne section and was immediately greeted by a salesman (even though he was hiding the whole time I was looking, but w/e). He took her straight to the AdG and she softly replied that it was nice but wanted to smell a few others.

    The two made their way around the stand smelling some more fragrances with some muffled replies I could not make out, as I was a bit busy myself. Just after I saw they made their way over to the Chanel section I hear a loud, oooh yes I will take a bottle of that!.

    He went to ring her up and I waited behind her so I could finally ask where the secret vault with the GPHII was. As she turned to leave I saw not a shy older woman turn to me, but a freshly invigorated cougar looking for action. She stared straight in my eyes with a look that screamed, I'm about to kidnap you and take you to a hotel, and pointed to a bottle of cologne seductively saying "this IS the one you want". I smiled politely in creepily entertained fashion and replied "yes it is nice".

    So what got this ladies motor running, possibly mere months before a trip to the retirement home, you ask?

    - Bleu de Chanel

    It had been on the to buy list before... but now I am bit afraid

    I agree with Gigi that Bleu beats the "pants" off Gucci PH II.

    Lol, I didn't want Gigi doing anything that involved pants, or beating around me. Just trying to pick up II before it got difficult. Might have to pick up a few from your for sale thread as well after the next pay check. Staring out/over and my nose is bigger than my wallet

    Got a few compliments this past weekend wearing Xeryus Rouge. My friend Jackie said "wow you smell really good, what Is that? It's smells different I can't put my finger on it". That's a pretty good reaction if you ask me.
