    Default What have people told you that you smell like?

    I was wondering what weird,interesting,flattering,etc things you've been told you smell like. Some of the mine are: My wife said New Haarlem smelled like maple syrup, another woman said it smelled like Obsession by CK...My wife said Fahrenheit smelled like relish during the opening notes...a woman told me that MI smelled "fancy"...another said GIT smelled "amazing" and followed me around..my 10 year old said that TV smelled like vanilla, so I guess that one makes sense..

    Wearing By Kilian "straight to heaven" a coworker told me that I smell like a tree.
    Last week I was wearing Malle Bois d'Orage and a coworker enters the office and she said, who's been cleaning with Ajax here?

    SMW, GIT and Rocky Mountain Wood all generally just get "you smell good."

    HOWEVER:

    It's the ones people didn't like - mainly when I was first getting into fragrance about a year ago - that got the best responses.

    1 Million - "you smell like a complete douchebag"

    Bleu De Chanel - "you smell like my Grandpa's basement."

    Chanel Allure Blanche - "you smell...different"

    Of course,I've been told this(thanks,Mom!)but my funniest story involves my recent sampling of Coromandel.One tiny drop of it to each wrist absolutely filled my house.My husband came home and said "Have you been smoking pot?"Nope,I just project patchouli like a Grateful Dead concert!

    For our international audience- "You smell like a French whore" is the default insult of a certain type of American usually quite averse to frags. Generally espoused by men averse to any sort of care in the area of men's grooming. As I recall, I smelled like "French whore" everyday during my time employed at a Detroit auto plant.

    RE: The MI vs. Diddy thing - my coworkers both wear Sean John and they wanted to high five me when I put on MI for work one day, because I "joined the club". I can't look at that decant with a straight face ever again. P. Diddy is laughing at me.

    Dior Homme - "you smell like the inside of a really rich person's car"
    Prada Infusion d'Homme - less words and really more kissing (yes, it's that good)
    Tom Ford Tuscan Leather - leather, expensive
    Carolina Herrera 212 - guido, roach bomb
    Allure Homme Blanche - lemon cream pie

    I rotate through fragrances every single day and I have about sixty in my collection, so it's a different comment from a different person almost every day. Those just stood out in my immediate memory!

    The One Gentleman/Brit for Men/Baby Blue Jeans/Dior Homme/Prada Amber Homme/too many others to mention - "you smell like a Tarts Handbag" (this is probably the UK equivalent of "French Whore". For the international audience, Tart = lady in the oldest profession)

    I've heard,
    Have you been smoking dope?
    Something smells like moth balls here!
    What kind of closet do you keep your coat in?
    You smell really really good!
    Hey I really like that!
    You smell like you usually do--it's that one you always wear. (I wear a different one almost every day.)
    That smells just...perfect.
    Whatever it is you're wearing it smells very nice.
    I don't agree with you on the work issue, but the real point is what fragrance are you wearing?

    Those are all the ones I remember right now. The positive reactions have very much outnumbered the negative ones. Unfortunately.

    "You smell like a bunch of flowers" while wearing Flower Market by Lush. l took it as a compliment.

    Apart from that, it's usually "you smell nice/gorgeous/amazing/lovely", except for my boyfriend complaining about my "old lady" perfumes, eg. Magie Noire, Shalimar, etc....

    Lots of strange or so-so reactions, few compliments, but what makes it all the more interesting, compliments on the frags I'd least likely expect to get positive feedback

    While wearing Xerjoff Uden, I was told by *two* people I smell like fresh, wonderful apple-pie!!!

    Other than that, I was told that I smell like a lemon when wearing Eau de Tropique or Citrus Bigarrade...

    Recently I was wearing Quorum for the first time, and I was on the bus. I'd been enjoying Quorum quietly up till this point, sitting on my own and reading, when I suddenly heard someone loudly demand, "What's that smell?" I waited some time before looking behind me in order to be discreet. When I did look, I realized whoever it was must have been sitting a fair number of seats behind me. I went back to my reading. A few minutes passed. Then I heard again, "What's that smell?" I heard the question probably twice more at intervals before I got off the bus. I never figured who it was, never mind what they thought they smelled. It hasn't put me off Quorum though.
