    Thumbs up Unsolicited Compliments.

    I wear a wide range of fragrances, but rarely recieve compliments. Last Friday I recieved my bottle of Ambre Sultan and upon wearing it today recieved two unsolicited compliments, one from a lady and one from a gentleman and a very pleasant experience I might add. The only other scent that I get regular compliments upon is Mitsouko, so I gues I will be exploring more of the Serge Lutens line. I could get used to this compliment thing! (LOL)

    You can never go with Serge Lutens house. One of the houses I truly respect for creating such unique fragrances. However, while Serge Lutens has some easily appealing fragrances (Ambre Sultan, Chergui, Five O'Clock Gingebre...) there are also those fragrances which, well...which are not for everyone like MKK and Arabie, still worth the experience. Certainly a house you should check EVERYTHING from.

    I very rarely get compliments, don't look for them. But it is Serge Lutens that does seem to attract them.
    Cuir Mauresque and Daim Blond are two most recent compliments totally out of the blue.

    l don't look for compliments either, although it would be nice to get more from my SO! lt is nice when people notice & take the time to tell me when l smell good. Off the top of my head, the ones l've received the most compliments on are;

    Montale lntense Tiare
    Yves Rocher Pur Desir de Gardenia
    Estee Lauder Tuberose Gardenia
    Sheer Stella
    My Queen
    ..and of course, "the scent of a woman" Shalimar!

    Wow that's quite a few, l'm pleasantly surprised now that l've thought about it, good thread!

    My most recent complement was on CdG Wonderwood, which I thought more of a skinscent. A colleague standing about 90cms away (whom I dont particularly get along with actually) asked me what my "nice cologne" was.

    It seems to depend on where I am. I get lots of compliments when I'm in New Orleans but rarely here in Milwaukee. I really think it's a matter of people feeling comfortable and relaxed enough to mention it, not that they don't necessarily notice or appreciate it if they don't speak up. In my experience Pink Sugar and EL's Sensuous are crowd pleasers (the crowd likes it sweet!) but I've recently received positive comments on Chamade, Azuree, Fragonard's Belle de Soleil, Chanel No22, Aromatics Elixir (!!) and Eau des Merveilles, all when I was in New York.

    Most recently - and suprisingly - I got 2 unsolicited compliments when wearing The Smell of Weather Turning, by Gorilla Perfumes! I was shocked because I had just dabbed a bit on my wrists to sample, and went off to work! It's an unusual fragrance, and along with being a niche scent I NEVER dreamed of getting complimented! It seems like everywhere I go the only scents I recognize people wearing are Angel, Be Delicious and Light Blue. I love this stuff, and the compiments are a nice bonus!

    I've gotten compliments several times (o.k., maybe twice?) while wearing Bulgari Black, and just yesterday I got a "Well, you smell nice today!" from a coworker at the coffee machine while I was wearing Bois d'Orage (which means I now have an excuse to spring for a whole bottle.)

    Fun! Even though I wear fragrance mostly for myself, it's nice to get the occasional compliment, isn't it? Emphasis on occasional, because I'm a light applier (at least, I like to think that's the reason it's only occasional).

    I've been complimented three times: 1) Just today, TM Alien oil (by my dentist); 2) Sonoma Scent Studio's Tabac Aurea; and 3) Delrae Mythique, after a workout.

    I usually wear either very light perfume or forego fragrance altogether at the dentist or doctor. This time, I skipped the spray fragrance but used the body oil because my skin was dry, forgetting that Alien oil is strong stuff.

    When the dentist said I smelled good, I actually apologized and told him I hoped I wasn't invading people's scent spaces. He said it was nice to smell something terrific because many of the olfactory events they experience in a dental office aren't so nice.

    So I guess it depends on the dentist. But I still plan to apply lightly or not at all in the future.

    A dentist usually wears a mask over his nose and mouth also goggles to prevent water from the irrigation coming in contact with these areas. This will prevent some scents from coming to his olfactory nerve. I can see where your dentist can have that opinion, but there worse things he can smell. Try having to deal with rotten teeth from lack of brushing or drug use. If they do not brush their teeth, the likelihood of them having good hygine goes down quite a bit. So now, you are dealing with morning breath from 5yrs ago and body odor. If I had a pick, I would rather care for the person with some perfume.

    I'll say this, it does not matter what you do. There will always be somebody that will find a fault in it. I try to do the things that make me happy without offending the masses. The occasional personal person who gets offended. I can't help that. If they say something, I apologize and go on. They have option to go elsewhere. If I am at their place, I have the option to change or go elsewhere. I have come to the conclusion that I am not going to please everyone. I live my life so that is pleasing to God, my family, and friends. I try to help those in need as much as I can but I know that I cannot help everyone.

    Sorry, I'll get off my soap box now. I guess your dentist hit a nerve, forgot the novocaine.

    It's clear that your significant other now takes it for granted that you smell good and no longer compliments you. Time to show him there is an alternative! I suggest not bathing, deodorizing or wearing fragrance for several days. When you again smell good, the appreciation will come pouring in.

    LOL! Is this meant for me? Devious, cunning plan, mwahahahaha!! Don't know if l could go through with it, though. l wear scent every single day whether l leave the house or not, l just wouldn't feel right without it, & l work in a hospital! No-one has ever complained about it, though, & l do avoid wearing the real powerhouse stuff at work.

    The 2 that I have received the most compliments on have been, Le'a by Saffron James and Pink Frangipani by Lucy B. Several others too, Petite Cherie, Apres L'Ondee and L'Heure Bleue. Most likely because it's different than what everyone else is wearing. Definitely more compliments on soft feminine scents than powerhouse or quirky niche scents.

    This is my very first post. I don't know why I am chiming in now. I have actually been a "lurker" for years. I've learned a lot from my basenotes pals (I think of you as pals now. Isn't that funny?) Anyway, I seem to get a lot of compliments for my fragarances. Maybe it is because I marinate in them. People essentially don't get a choice about smelling me or not. I get the most compliments on: Amber Russe, Black Tourmaline, and Chergui. I can almost count on somebody complementing me when I wear those. I love Amouage frags and expect to get compliments when I wear those (Ubar, Lyric, Homage, Epic), but rarely do. And I KNOW people can smell me cuz most of those are potent. What I like best about compliments is that it opens the door to talking about perfumes (which is fun). Most recently, a compliment led to me finding a fumehead at work. I know I am not the only one who endlessly buys samples, reads blogs, and thinks about scent. But, strangely I kept this hobby kind of secret. It was fun to to find another fumehead who does the same things. We now swap samples. And all this started with a complement.

    I do get compliments (and/or comments) sometimes but I think it may be because I sell the Avon so people who buy from me tend to be comfortable commenting on perfume, makeup, hair.

    The only actually unexpected, unsolicited and certainly no ulterior motive compliment I've gotten is on the Body Shop Love Etc, a couple of people asked what I was wearing and where could they get it.

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Off the top of my head, from people other than my husband, Caron's Or et Noir & Versace's Crystal Noir - hmmm, a common theme, "noir" in each name
