    Last week I wore Thallium Black and got six compliments, on six different days, from 6 different ladies.

    This week I've been wearing Liz Claiborne's Curve - with very similar results......

    Next week, I shall mostly be wearing Gucci pour Homme II, possibly......

    I found it unusual but recently got few compliments while wearing Lalique White.

    If you are going to hit the clubbing scene in brazil definitely take a bottle of Ultrared for men. I had compliments every night.

    +1 for John Javratos, original. I usually don't get great longevity from this one, but yesterday, it was still doing well on me after 12 hours. If I always got that sort of longevity from JV, it would be one of my favorites.

    Y'know... that is interesting. One of my favorite YouTube reviewers is a guy named Kristo, and he swears by Lalique White. He's such a big fan of it that he stopped putting it in his summer top ten lists because it would be number one every time. I've seen a few others rave about it too, but I must be missing something because Lalique White does nothing for me. Or maybe it's that I can't get past the opening? I don't know, but I'll have to give it another shot sometime.
    In my swap list: Gucci Pour Homme (2003) BNIB.

    Default Compliment dream team

    Just poking around on here I notice that compliments are always a nice side effect of this hobby. Some people take it more seriously than others, but I can pretty safely say that no one dislikes a good word about how they smell.

    Say you were to make a "Compliments dream team", i.e. A fantasy league where you would pick "players" (fragrances), to apply onto a selection of males, with the goal of generating as many compliments as possible (ie. each compliment is a point, and points are tallied at the end of a season and the winner would well, win... something that you really want...)

    Which fragrances would you choose? Remember is for a random sample of males, not necessarily yourself. I'm having a tough time figuring out the number of 'players', but lets say 6.


    1. Creed Aventus
    2. Paco Rabanne, One Million
    3. Jean Paul Gaultier, Le Male
    4. Bleu De Chanel, Chanel
    5. La Nuit De L'homme
    6. Armani - ADG

    From what I heard from currently widespread opinions on currently popular frags, along the lines of:

    One Million
    ADG
    GIT
    M7
    CK One
    Le Male

    As easy as that. From my own personal wardrobe and personal experience- hardly ever the exact figure of 6, either much more or much less than this constant value. I'd say nearly all or nearly none of the scents in my current wardrobe, simply because compliments are such an elusive, unpredictable situation these days, the least likely to be complimented scent of today can become the "major player", the "top dog", the "high performer" in garnering compliments in the suitable environment, context, surrounding etc.

    In all fairness, my wife really likes it, and one of my assistants once complimented me on it. It's not a big compliment magnet like Aventus, which is basically unparalleled.

    Happy you liked the Fantasy team aspect. That was my thinking so the posts would have a "disattatchement" from pretences about teh fragrance etc. Ie. If your a big Rangers fan but pick Sidney Crosby for your Fantasy Hockey Team.

    Now that you mention that, one of my female friends absolutely hated Millisime Imperiale, but adored Ironman by Avon ($10 fragrance)

    Last compliment I got was last Saturday at church. I hugged a young lady about half an hour after reapplying Gucci Pour Homme 2, and after we hugged, she told me I smelled good. Funny thing is, I was hoping she would notice, as I've seen her on twitter talking about guys that wear nice colognes and how it makes her weak. So I was like YESSS! LOL

    I got an interesting compliment on Molecule 01 yesterday from a date. She said I smelled really good. I thanked her and mentioned that I was trying something new, but I didn't give her any details. I asked if she had any thoughts about it. She said "Oh. I would have never guessed you were wearing cologne. I just thought that's what you smell like. I really like it."

    Yeah. I've gotten one or two, but not many. It's not a compliment catcher for me at all, but I love the stuff and wear it for myself. If I'm choosing something to wear for someone else, like a date, Aventus isn't my pick.

    Not sure if that counts as a compliment but last saturday evening a relative (female) asked me what I was wearing, because it seemed familiar to her. It was Acqua di Gio and she owns Acqua di Gioia.

    One time my brother complemented my fragrance when I was wearing Aventus.

    What was I wearing? Creed Aventus.
