    Royal Briar by Carroll & Co. $25 a big bottle, and all the compliments one can stand.

    CK Eternity. The one that Off-Scenter hilariously described as follows:

    "Eternity is as close to “generic” a men’s fragrance as I’ve smelled in a while. The composition is so bland, so faceless, that I’m not sure I can describe it in terms of notes and ingredients. Etermity’s top notes are a vague, undifferentiated citrus (dihydromyrcenal?) and Calone, as blatantly chemical as any store brand shower gel, and its core smells like the lowest common denominator of every stereotypical “fresh” fruity-aquatic fougère since Cool Water. Ideally, any scent so little distinguished from its peers in terms of composition should exhibit outstanding quality to justify purchase. Eternity for Men does nothing of the sort. It’s not only trite, but shoddy to boot. Not worth another line of text."

    But women love it! This is the thing, you can review and grade perfumes according to top notes, middle notes, dry down, whatever. But people don't think about that when they smell it on another person. I couldn't care less about all that academic hoo hah, if it smells appealing, then it smells appealing (now, of course, there ARE better perfumes than Eternity!)

    I own a 3.4 Pure Coffee and a few Pure Malt Samples. The Pure Malt gets more compliments, if that's what you're looking for.

    Paris Hilton For Men, this thing is a huge compliment getter for me. Not one if my favorites but probably one of the biggest compliment getters for me.

    Givenchy Gentleman is probably my #1 compliment getter. (I don't know how "under the radar" it is, though.

    When I used to wear it more often. Aqua di Gio always got plenty of compliments and still does as far as I know. It's funny how enlightenment makes the individual feel elevated by newer, obscure and better and all the usual stuff you hear on BN, but plain and simple and nonpretentious Aqua di Gio works....(ohhh those ignorant masses):-)
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    I love eau des baux not sure if I will buy it but it is a nice scent, for me I would say L'occitane's vetiver and creed's acier alumium.

    Seriously? You must only own two frags and the other is the original Bijan.

    The first and only time I smelled G Gentleman I felt violated.

    Cerruti PH, Azzaro Silver Black, Boss in motion Black. These get me compliments quite a bit, especially Cerruti and Azzaro SB.

    Some people will compliment you on ANYTHING provided it is not body odour.

    Nice - Actually, I have Givenchy Pour Homme (red) but Im saving it for the right occasion. I can imagine it gets compliments, it smells extravagant IMO, really really nice... too fancy for my work environment

    Btw. I see you two mentioning Givenchy PH, I love that one, it shares the vibe with Boss in motion black but Boss in motion black is sharper, stronger.

    I have to add Azzaro Chrome to my compliment list, I don't see it being highly praised here, I'm not saying it deserves that, but it gets noticed quite.

    I think Davidoff Adventure deserves a mention. I saw this at TJ Maxx for about 10 dollars.

    Indeed, I have to agree, and Adventure Fraiche is even more a WIN

    I got a compliment on the new Fahrenheit A., that hasn't happened in a while.

    I always get compliments whenever i wear the "regular" Fahrenheit (both vintage and reformulation).
