    OMG! Look what you've started w/ your Aventus stories , Noirdrakkar. You've created a monster. Maybe there should be another thread started about amazingly "true" Aventus stories. Amusing to say the least.

    I think some of us are just poking fun at the silliness of the hype.

    Getting the thread back on track:
    Lalique White. I got a compliment on this one over lunch today. It was from a friend, so I take it with a grain of salt, but still, it's nice.

    Lalique White is a really interesting scent. It starts out REALLY peppery. Too peppery for my tastes, but after 15 minutes or so, it becomes a really fresh, clean scent before eventually (and somewhat surprisingly) evolves into woods. Because of the opening, I don't know if I'd buy this one... but I'm enjoying the sample. It seems to be a people-pleaser with some character, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who loves fresh scents and pepper.

    Bois de Portugal is sexier than Aventus, IMO...own them both... feedback was better with BdP!

    Lalique white is wonderful but lasts nothing on me, have to use one fifth of the bottle!

    I may be wrong, but I think 'Aqua Di Gio' receives lots of compliments, or at least it used to.

    I remember my friend used to wear it and whenever we would go out to a lounge or a bar, I remember him receiving compliments for his frag. I never read anything about it, but it was all I kept hearing 7 or 6 years ago. So I am surprised Aqua Di Gio hasn't been getting a lot of it on the forums! But again maybe I'm wrong.

    The most notable compliment I've received was for a cologne made by Amouage a few years ago. I don't remember the specific name, I only had some it (The original bottle was transparent with an ivory-color cap. I don't see it on the website) The girl called me a day later and told me that she enjoyed it, and could still smell it in the car. I personally never came to love it... it was way to strong for my taste, but I am planning to have a look at their current line up.

    Most people here know ADG is a top compliment getter. Its the best selling cologne in the world for a reason. Most people here tend to avoid it because there are more options and because ADG is too popular for its own good (people know you are wearing ADG, ladies think it smells like their ex, etc...).

    I was in the grocery store Wednesday and this lady was walking behind me, talking on her cell phone. She was telling someone, "This guy smells REALLY good. I don't know what he's wearing, but wow he smells good."

    It was Polo.

    This is going to sound painfully familiar to most of you, but Aventus.

    This is actually a big deal for me because I'm usually very quiet and out-of-the-way, I never wear "loud" fragrances, and I never spray more than 3 sprays of anything (and usually not more than 2). Basically, very few people can even tell that I'm wearing a fragrance. I supposed this is reflected in the fact that I've gotten a grand total of 3 fragrance compliments in my entire life.

    But the fourth one was yesterday! I was wearing Aventus and my hairdresser gave me a compliment. I know she wasn't just doing it to be nice because I've worn other, more powerful things to the barber shop and she hasn't mentioned them.

    It's odd. The last compliments I've gotten have been while wearing fragrances I'm not too fond of.

    One was for Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme (made in Germany version, not the lovely vintage Italian) and the other for Lacoste Pour Homme (my quick i'm-in-a-hurry-and-don't-want-to-think-what-to-spray-on fragrance).

    +1 for Hanae Mori H.M. (not to be confused with their new HiM). I thought H.M. might be too sweet, but boy did my date love it on me. I got one of the most enthusiastic unsolicited compliments I've received in a LONG time.

    Really, I shouldn't worry about H.M. being too sweet since it's nowhere near as sweet as things like 1 Million or Guilty.

    Not strange at all actually. The stuff is classic, and it's making a resurgence thanks to those brilliant ads. It's interesting to think it dates back to the 1930s. I wonder how much the smell has changed through the decades.

    I bet that happens to a lot of us. I rarely get complimented on my favorites... but that frigging $15 bottle of Curve is a sure thing. Go figure. Granted, I really like Curve (and have no problem admitting it), but I'd be thrilled if Gucci Pour Homme got me compliments like that! I do get compliments on Aventus, but they're never as enthusiastic as the compliments I get when wearing Hanae Mori which I picked up for around $30.

    "It's called Antaeus, and it's made by Chanel", I replied.

    "I just want to let you know", she said to me, "that it's great to smell a man wearing a man's fragrance, not some poofy (an Australianism that literally translates as "faggoty") fruity thing".

    I work at a luxury department store at the female fashion section. There is one fragrance which gets a lot of attention, from female colleagues who I know, as well as colleagues which I don't know personally. Also, almost every female customer has given me a compliment so far. Examples: walking by and says Hmmmm, somebody smells lovely in here or fetching a sigh and say you smell delicious. Dior Homme Intense, absolutely the best complimented fragrance. Others are jpg le male (bit cliche though), acqua di gio essenza, jpg² ysl 'homme.

    It is interesting to see how the most complimented fragrances are not the top-rated ones in the BN Reviews ...

    In my case, Allure Sport, Aqua di Gio, Le Male, Boss Bottled and A*Men are the only ones that have received compliments. I've tried less popular but good-reviewed ones and nothing (Versace Black Jeans, Hanae Mori, Rive Gauche, Joop Jump, etc.)

    I have to give some Versace and YSL from this post a try ...

    Very true! It's interesting how much of a difference there can be between the scents we enjoy on ourselves and the scents others enjoy on us.

    One of the things to keep in mind about this thread and the spreadsheet list based on comments here is that it isn't really a list of scents that get the most compliments. It's a list of scents that get the most compliments as reported by folks on basenotes. In the real world, lots of frags people here consider to be generic would rate much higher and I suspect that many of the most hyped online wouldn't rate as high. Tastes here tend to be quite a bit more refined, and that's not a bad thing at all. Also, scents people here are more passionate about or excited about will end up higher on the list because they get worn more often.

    I think it would be awesome to get an accurate list of the scents women enjoy the most on a man, but that would require a research project based on a huge diverse sample of women smelling scents without knowing what each is.

    That being said... I love the spreadsheet made from this thread. It's neat to get an idea of whether others enjoy scents we may be thinking about buying. Obviously, you buy because you enjoy the scent, but this added bit of info is nice to have.

    I got lots of compliments from women of all ages when I wear Ungaro III. There's something in that cologne that drives them crazy.

    Try it and you'll see the results. One thing I would add, wear it with formal clothes. Not a jeans and T-shirt cologne.

    From one of my wifes' female coworkers . . . "You smell nice." Polo Double Black it was.

    Mont Blanc Legend.

    I got this as a gift.

    I am not a big fan of this fragrance.

    However, after showering, I sprayed 2-3 on my chest and 1 on my neck and went to the shopping center.

    I got 4-5 compliments easily during my 2 hours shopping session.

    Mostly girls around 25-30 yr old.

    Even if it's a good compliments getter, I don't think I will wear it again.

    It reminds me too much the smell of a store in the USA
