    I spent a moment trying to figure it out before giving up. Would there be anyway to input this thread into a word frequency program in order to see the fragrances that get mentioned most?

    There's a lot of pages to sift through but someone did that exact thing probably 15 or 20 pages back. I'm on my phone or I'd look it up. It was very detailed.

    I'm surprised Green Irish Tweed received the second most compliments, however.

    While the information is interesting it by no means can be relied on as a guide. That is more indicitive of what is popular with basenoters.

    Of course. But if the whole purpose of this nearly 100 page thread is to see which fragrances yield compliments for specific users, then I definitely think aggregated information from such a huge sample size serves at least some purpose, flawed though it may be.

    Huge compliments x 3 today by my lady for Virgin Island Water. Unsolicited. Just one spray.

    This one is great in the summer and only the summer IMO.

    Well again that list isnt so much a list of most complimented fragrances. It really is more of a what is popular with basenoters. GIT is a popular fragrance on this forum. Therefore it will get more wearings and more exposure than many of the other mainstream designer scents on the list. That is why your seeing it in the top 5. You cant have a "what should be my first niche purchase" thread without it at least being mentioned if not heavily recommended. If you were to ask this same question on A&F forum fierce would be in the top 5 just because how many fans of that brand wear it.

    Not really. Yes these people are the ones giving the compliment but that doesnt mean they even know what the scent is. It just means they find what they have encountered to be appealing. Not that they wear it or that it would be popular in their circle of friends. Getting a compliment on a fragrance is highly dependent on the frequency of wear. If you only wear Aventus once every other month or so you may never receive a compliment. Hell you may get one every time you wear it but if you wear bleu de chanel 3-4 times a week and its your signature scent you may only get complimented on it twice a month but it all ready places higher than aventus because it gets more exposure. Lets face it most basenoters come into contact with the general public. And to get a compliment in public on your fragrance you have to wear it. Having GIT place high on a list compiled from this site shows that it is popular here. Not with those smelling it on them. And actually its not even indicative of what is popular on the forum but rather what is popular with those who actually chose to participate in this thread.

    Bond No 9 Scent of Peace for him did it again.............. This time with my 2 mother in laws (2 beautiful women I must say, another whole story). I went in a family-visiting trip Yesterday with my wife. After arriving at my first MIL's house, she just screamed about that "incredible and sexy" smell coming from me. Then she asked me the exact name of the fragrance, noted and now will buy it for her man. THen I left and went to the second MIL's house. Right after she hugged me, she just holed me there for about an extra minute to just keep smelling me, and said "you have to be the best smelling man in the world".

    After all of these reactions I have gotten with this scent (including my wife), there must be something this fragrance has that women seem to appreciate and get excited about (at least, puertorican women that I interact with). It basically jumped into my most complieted fragrance spot, when taking in consideration 100% of the time I have used this I have gotten a compliment, which no other fragrance had achieved, not by a long shot.

    Accordingly, I think I will be using the fragrance when I need a safe scent that will be liked by women around me.

    sigh....Aventus. It's not my personal favorite scent but it does get you compliments from both men and women. Someone actually purchased this (not a frag head himself) because he loved it so much...I didn't even have to say anything other than tell him what it was. Whether you dis on this fragrance it simply does it.

    Default Re: Which scent gets you the most female compliments?

    I got a big compliment from a CVS Pharmacy cashier about two weeks ago. I had applied Aventus about 10 hours earlier and had told my wife that I was disappointed in its lasting power about an hour earlier. Then boom...

    I had walked away from the cashier when she asked my wife if either my sons or I had cologne on and that she liked it. I walked back over to her and leaned in and she confirmed that it was me. Same thing happened about two years ago at a different pharmacy (got a compliment from a cashier on Aventus). So while I can barely smell it, obviously others can for hours.

    Say what you want about Creed, for me Aventus and GIT are the compliment kings. Aventus in particular draws compliments from complete strangers.

    two elderly women flipped out on me for Ho Hang Club. One pulled the carnation right out and said it reminded her of her youth.

    A good elevator-compliment from a female stranger at the mall, Yesterday. Just my second time wearing Bergamote 22 (new purchase) and it's already causing some Havoc ; ) hehehe. In my opinion, the fragrance is a total masterpiece and even better, its seems to be well liked by non-fragrance enthusiasts as well.

    2. Xerjoff - Kobe ( Very well made and addictive )
    3. Tom Ford - Tobacco Vanille ( Sparks my imagination of an old English shop )
    4. Creed - Aventus ( Lovely pineapple, great longevity and sillage )
    5. Nasomatto - Black Afgano ( Unique and long lasting as it's parfum )

    Weird decision. It's like you would ask on a culinary forum "what's the best chilli sauce" and when the members give answers you change the title to "what's the best sauce". There is a big difference between males and females, especially when it comes to taste. Most of the guys on this forum only care about the compliments from the ladies.

    I agree. One of the most common questions in this forum - the male fragrance discussion forum - is about which scents women like. The question comes up so often, in fact, that a thread about which fragrances get the most compliments from women is now 99 pages long. Ninety Nine Pages Long. It seems odd to change the topic 99 pages into a thread.

    And it is a change of topic.

    The scents I've gotten compliments on from men are very different than the ones I've gotten compliments on from women.

    I recently purchased a bottle of GIT after testing out decants of it for several months, and really really enjoying it. I've worn it before and my wife has complimented me, but I wore it last night to a bday party and had my sister in law asking me what I was wearing, saying enthusiastically that it was "very, VERY nice." Almost like she was taken aback by how nice it smelled. So yeah, I'm pretty happy GIT is now in my collection and I see now what all the fuss is about.

    She walked by and commented to the other guard "Damn, Steve even smells good after working all day in the machine shop."

    This time it was Polo green.

    I don't see that you caused any "chaos." You were just trying something different, and as always meant well. Don't worry.

    Today I received a nice complement from a female cashier. I was wearing Pure Wood by Mugler and she said I smelled nice.

    I got the motivation to try La Nuit de l`Homme by Yves Saint Laurent from its positive feedback on this thread.A very pleasant,mild,special,fresh and decent fragrance which garnered several applaudes from ladies n gents alike. no doubt its difficult to exactly describe this unique creation as I just feel that i m wearing something fresh and clean.....its the people who tell u how great u smell.
    surely one of the few high class fragrances that wont offend even the most anti perfume types

    I've been getting nice compliments for La Nuit de l'Homme also

    But, since I first posted on this thread when I first joined, I think Carolina Herrera 212 Men has emerged as my overall top female compliment-getter. I'm a little surprised, since it's such a sleeper on BN, I am often the only one who ever suggests it. Just a few weeks ago, I went to pick up a woman who I was wooing, and when we hugged she reacted instantaneously, "OMG what are you wearing, that smells so good?!". She grabbed me by the shirt and started sniffing, but I was so befuddled I kept stuttering my words until I finally managed to blurt out "212 Man!", but by then she was talking over me again, "you smell so good!". Obviously, this was a best-case scenario, but it sure was nice ... and no surprise it happened while I was wearing 212 Man. And yes, I realize that reaction wasn't all about the fragrance

    I usually don't check out EDT's. But, I was surprised how good this smells. This is definitely a sleeper.
