    Default When SCENT gets you the girl. A quick story to inspire you . READ : )

    Hey everyone! I posted this in a response to the "Best Compliment Ever Received" and figured I'd share something personal to inspire people who are looking for love/someone to be with. Sometimes scent can mean more than you think.

    "I was walking toward this beautiful girl at a house party, we lock eyes, she smiles, and we pass each other. I was headed to talk to my friend when my wrist is taken from behind. I turn around and there she was all puppy-eyed and she says, " I just wanted to say your the most delicious thing I've ever smelled, my name is _______. What are you wearing." I replied, " I'll tell you later but right now I'm GOING to get to know you." I was wearing MUSC RAVAGEUR. She is now my girlfriend, soon to be fiance. Thank You Maurice : ) "

    Well, I believe it . I find many people don't lie that much online, easy to weed out the trolls. Whether the story is fake or not, it stood out in that topic and I enjoyed it.

    Good luck dude ^_^

    is musc ravageur really that good?
    i've sampled it once with some girl friends to get their opinion, but they each said it smelled like sweaty balls.
    they did agree drydown was better but not worth it especially the way the initial 1-2 hours smell

    i wouldn't go as far to call it sweaty balls, as it's been a while since i smelled a pair but the drydown is very very nice.
    contemplating if this should be my first niche purchase.

    O/T- Primrose have you been reading A Picture of Dorian Grey recently? I know that it was that book that inspired me to start using the word 'ennui'. Good ol' Henry...

    Great story. A good fragrance most likely isn't the only thing that gets someone a girl though.

    Don't be fooled.
    Scent never gets you the girl.
    YOU always get the girl.

    One property scent does have, is to give girls who already want you, a convenient and pleasant excuse to be the one to approach you first, strongly, without feeling a certain way while doing it. Next to looks & height, imho Scent is THE perfect 'mute icebreaker'.

    It must have been at least 3 hrs after you applied it. Lucky she didn't meet you before that.....

    Is this aimed at my selfproclaimed, thus fake, aristocratic ass, my dear Primrose?!

    Nice story. Musc Ravageur definitely can have that effect on women. I wore it to work on a couple of occasions and the comments I received from some of my female coworkers seemed to be more of the "I want you" nature rather than the typical "You smell nice today" type.

    I've posted the story once before of coming home from work one night and some hot punk rock chicks in fishnet stockings were hanging out on the fire escape of my building-- they were being very snotty and brash. I remember them heckling me as I walked in from the parking lot like I was some "square" or something. I got inside and changed my clothes and gave myself a few good hits of Comme des Garšons SKAI and leaving my unit to go get a soda from the vending machine. I had to pass these girls in the hallway and about 5 seconds after passing, they all turned around and one of them said something like "Oh my God you smell AMAZING! What are you wearing?!" Then they invited me to a party that was going on.

    Sometimes the right fragrance can really get someone's attention. Think about how few people really bother to wear scents these days-- and when somebody does wear something that's a cut above, it definitely can be that "X factor" that puts you over the top. I'm not into the notion of "panty droppers"-- I find that phrase really stupid, childish and annoying, but certainly the right fragrance can be the one thing that makes you stand out in a way that elicits a conversation. Ever been to a social event and wound up talking to a girl you thought was WAY out of your league when suddenly the subject of music comes up and it turns out that you both love the same obscure artist, for example? Then after that, it's a walk in the park. Sometimes the right fragrance can do that.

    Now THAT'S the part that got her really interested. A healthy dose of confidence & an element of intrigue. Pretty smooth, dude!

    Yes it's true. Admittedly it's the confidence, good looks, and charm that win her over but it was the fragrance that got her to come to me. She was leaving and no one knew who she was so the likelihood of me seeing her again was pretty slim.

    I suppose the fragrance gave her a convenient opening. Even if you weren't wearing any fragrance that evening, I'm sure she would have found some other ways to compliment you... Her smile when you both locked eyes for the first time signals 'attraction'. Of course there is also the possibility she was just being polite. Was that why you didn't make the first move?
