    "You smell like urinal cakes." (Serge Lutens Daim Blond)
    "I smell Frangelico liqueur." (L'Artisan Parfumeur Méchant Loup)
    "Something smells like toilet bowl cleaner." (Serge Lutens Gris Clair)
    "Was something burning in here?" (Montale Greyland)
    "You smell simply mahvelous, dahling." (from a str8 dude buddy of mine, Frédéric Malle Une Rose)
    "Mmmmm... You smell good enough to lick!" (from a very hot young lady in my choir, who knows I'm gay, Frédéric Malle Une Rose)

    I've always thought the last two are especially good, considering the source of each, and that they're both said about the same fragrance.

    My favorite stock phrase about how you smell is the German "Du riechst wie ein siebstockiges Freudehaus." ("You smell like a seven-story whorehouse.") Fortunately, nobody's ever said this to me, though I'm sure they could have...

    Yup, I absolutely agree... My loving spouse has a very bad sense of smell. Most of what I wear "smells the same to me," and almost all comments (though few and far between) are negative.

    I remembered when I (stupidly) sprayed that on my wrist at Barney's. I had to turn to one of my friends saying, "This was a mistake. I smell like a Wilson's Leather outlet." FYI, brand new cars with leather interiors make me nauseous for whatever reason.

    Several winters ago I was wearing Hermes Bel Ami as my signature scent. I wore it usually underneath a sweater and a heavy wool coat. At the end of the day, I would often change my clothes into something lighter.

    One day I came out of the bathroom to find my girlfriend with my sweater up to her nose, inhaling deeply. I stood and watched her for at least five minutes, the fabric to her nostrils. She often did this when she thought I wasn't watching. She also liked to wear my clothes around after I took them off. If that's not a compliment I don't know what is.

    I've mainly had compliments on my fragrances.

    My boss on her last day of work, " you've always smelled nice, never been able to tell you", being my favourite

    Also, the one main negative, my dad, "you smell like MY grandma", Creed Green Valley!

    Hilarious thread. It's funny to read how other's perceive certain scents.

    I rarely get compliments when I wear fragrances. Maybe a couple at most. However, unfortunately it seems I have managed to draw more negative comments than compliments

    I will preface my experiences by saying I am the only guy at work who wears frags. So any comments from co-workers entering the room I am in, I assume are based on the frags I am projecting. " Who was smoking pot?" - John Varvatos Vintage.
    Uh,yeah, that would be me . . .I just decided to spark one up here at my desk to take the edge off. Seriously. That damn patchouli and I thought Varvatos was suppose to have lousy projection?

    My girlfriend has leveled numerous negative comments toward Gucci Pour Homme -
    " It smells like a 100 hundred lit cigars around a campfire in here" & towards Bang as well. Needless to say, the Gucci was banished from collection & gifted to a friend & Bang, well, let's say it has caused me to go underground on numerous occasions.

    I think after reading this thread I will be self conscious wearing M7. I had not realized so many perceive it as an "Old lady's perfume"
    Here, all the while walking around wearing it, I thought I was coming off like Lee Marvin and in actuality to some maybe Grandma Lee. Jeesh
    M7 just seems so masculine to my nose that it could not be possible

    Usually people just say " you smell nice" I have had a few "awesome, great, amazing and a couple Yummy's" I haven't had many actually pick out specific notes really or say it in that fashion.

    My 4 year old daughter will tell me "Boy that one's a real stinker" if she doesn't like the scent lol.

    She loves to sit and smell all the caps though, does it at least 2x a week haha.

    Once in college I was wearing Tea Rose on the bus and a fellow student blurted out "Who smells like a grandma?". I love the smell of roses and the Tea Rose definitely fit my poor college student budget, but sadly that comment put me off rose perfumes for the next decade or so (fortunately, I got over it). Recently I was wearing Bobbi Brown's Beach when a friend commented "You smell like Summer!" (it smells like Coppertone).

    Actually, it smells like MY basement. When I was on my big Bleu kick, I was using it as a repellant for recluse-type spiders. On carpet, it has months of longevity. And spiders do NOT like it.

    I'm really not sure that she talked about me, but just after I sprayed 3-4 sprays of CdG Tar in my room with door almost closed, my mother, who was in the living room, started to say she smelled some fireworks freshly burned and went to the window to check if the smell went from outdoor. Again, I can't verify if she really talked about my fragrance because I'm not sure if it smells in all the flat when I spray in my room, but I would find that really funny if it was actually my fragrance she was talking of
