    Sure, I don't mind giving you my results, but remember this is only based on two months of experience. The only comment that I'll make regarding these results is that I haven't had the last 3 bottles on the list for very long but I've worn everything here at least 3 or 4 times. So here are the early results. This will probably be more meaningful and interesting by the end of the year. CH is an easy favorite though...

    2 Bvlgari Black
    Burberry
    1 Chic
    1 D&G PH

    F Ferragamo 1 F Ferragamo Black 1 Jungle Homme
    L'Homme Sport
    Aramis Life

    Thats pretty cool, I don't use enough different colognes to make a spreadsheet worthwhile. but I love spreadsheets and do use them for almost everything hahha

    Personally most compliments come from Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male, that cologne, as everyone knows is a magnet for it.

    My GIT doesn't jump off my skin very well and therefore only gets compliments when someone comes very close.

    Decided to try out Rochas and Body Kouros.

    Since last week, I have received a total of 18 compliments.
    Wow! 18 in the span of only a few weeks is impressive. Sounds like you not only found a good fragrance but also one that works well for your chemistry. There are different schools of thought on that subject, but I believe fragrances do smell differently on different people. I don't know if its completely due to pH differences, but there are noticeable differences in fragrances from one skin to the next.

    Anywho, I'm glad you found one that works! By the way, I think Bleu de Chanel is a fine fragrance.

    Aventus, judging by its thread, gets TONS of compliments.

    Nah, sounds like too much work. I'm more of a live-in-the-moment kinda guy. I did get a couple of smiles from two young ladies in a train commute earlier today and one of them even inched ever closer towards me. My SotD was Chanel's 31 rue Cambon.

    I just take note of when someone makes a comment--good or bad. This is usually from my immediate family.

    BN Wisdom: # of compliments received is generally inversely proportional to the quality and artistry of the scent!

    It's hard to say when it comes to compliments. There's so many variables! If you wear a fragrance a lot, and get a lot of compliments, it may just mean that the sheer frequency of times you've worn it is why you've received so many compliments on it. Where you wore it and when you wore it could be factors too, as well as how many people that you'd passed while wearing it.

Its more like doing a broad consumer survey than anything. It also confirms my suspicions about which kinds of fragrances get compliments and which don't. I've also found only a few of the fragrances I own can elicit a compliment after 2 hours or so. Most compliments are offered because of the top and middle notes. After that, people don't seem to be impressed with the bases of most fragrances. I'm a scientist by trade and at heart, so analyzing data is just something that I do naturally. As I said, I don't wear the compliment getters anymore often. I almost wear them less, to be honest...



    Its all good. We're all different and I wouldn't expect everyone to understand. Actually the Excel Spreadsheet has been useful for keeping a log of which fragrances I own since BN doesn't have all the fragrances listed, and I don't update my wardrobe here all the time. So it serves more than one purpose.
    Your clarification makes much more sense as I'm in the marketing research business myself. Your post seemed so over the top at first!

    Same here.

    Seriously though, I think no more than 15 times the past 2 years. These wouldn't include times when people asked what I was wearing, but didn't comment on whether they liked it.

    Unbelievable. No, man. I don't do logs, and I really don't even give a sh*t. My girlfriend's getting a big kick out of it though.

    "In seduction as in intimidation, intent is everything. A hack from Men's Health, a magazine notable for the pectorals on its cover, wrote to me asking "How can a man maximize the influence of his cologne choices to attract the women he's really interested in?" Efficient mating strategies are good in principle, but this one is doomed. Waste time wondering which cologne pulls better, and your genes will spread only by lucky accident. A perfume should be right for the man, not for the job."

    You'll only be getting compliments from people present when you spray the stuff, it smells great but disappears in minutes!
