    I absolutely love wearing Carnal Flower. I have never gotten a comment from it, which seems odd to me because I think it is such a striking fragrance.

    There's one fragrance I love which is inexpensive and looked down upon by most basenoters. Thing is everytime I wear it women come out of the woodwork and I hear a lot of "mmmmmmmmm" and "God he smells good!" That fragrance my fellow basenoters is Kenneth Cole Black. The best smelling fragrances that get very few compliments are vetivers. This includes Terre d'Hermes, Indian Vetiver, Guerlain Vetiver, and Dsquared Rocky Mountain Wood. I've had a few, but they were all women over the age of 45.

    I would compliment a man wearing a good vetiver fragrance if I knew him well enough to be comfortable doing so. But hey, I'm 45, so take that as you will.

    There are so many that never bring a compliment.....I have often felt that strangers are so uneasy about complimenting a fragrance and this is one main reason that compliments are rare!!! I could be wrong but I would guess that this is a big problem!!!

    Going out on a limb here, but I think vetivers are a mature and confident smell and women who are ready for a mature and confident man will take notice. Not saying there aren't younger women who appreciate "less is more", but I find that older women appreciate the subtle over the bold. Now... tell me I'm completely wrong

    Nah, I'll just say "older" women are smarter and cooler anyway.

    Yes. Pretty much any Vetiver-based scent. Smells great but not a compliment getter.

    The fragrance that gets me the most compliments is Creed's Aventus. The pineapple note is not only pleasant but sharp and piercing even in small doses. People can't help but to compliment.

    Personally, I like my fragrances to smell good in a subtle way. People (women) leaning in closer to try to smell you without you noticing is a better compliment than a verbal one.

    Well said. Though I must admit to wearing Aventus and enjoying the females' compliments in the office. Generally, though, the quieter the fragrance on me the better...it's like the man who speaks softly and gets much more attention than the one who shouts all of the time. Politicians should learn from this.
