    Default Got my first compliment today!!!

    The first in probably decades of juice wearing.
    This twist is I was wearing Guerlain L'Instant Extreme as well as a shirt that had Santos Concentree by Cartier still on it from the day before. A compliment none-the-less.

    Funny because I was wearing a puffy down ski parka (pahkah) - think Seinfeld episode, over my clothes. The majority of the sillage cloud emanating from me was L'Instant Extreme - but Santos is just as amazing in my book.

    Nice!

    Did you get the compliment from a stranger on the street or a relative / friend / family?
    Can you tell us a little more about the situation?

    Well, I must be on a roll as I got my second compliment today.
    Wow, none for decades and then two in six weeks.
    Was wearing Trussardi Uomo when one of my clients said Neal, you always smell so good.

    You never forget your first scent compliment. Mine was in an elevator. A painfully beautiful woman leaned towards me and said she had to know what I was wearing. I told her GIT. She said it slowly as she looked into my eyes, rolling the name around her tongue. Then she said she needed to buy it for her boyfriend.

    I would've replied "I can only disclose it to my girlfriend" These beautiful girls are indeed a pain.

    Once in decades?
    You should either spray more (6 sprays!), or spray other juice.
    However L'Instant should do the trick usually.

    Always great to receive a compliment. Got my first when I was 16 while at college. Two girls came over and said, 'we just want to say that you smell gorgeous'. I felt like I'd just won the lottery! Best thing about it was what I was actually wearing that day....CK One! Havn't actually worn it since I was 18 but it was great for me back then.

    I'd like to believe this. Really, I would. But I'll be honest: women run the world (at least for heterosexual men). As a single guy, if beautiful women consistently told me I smelled great on a day I was sampling a fragrance I thought was mediocre, I'd wear it all the damn time.

    I totally agree with this. Although initially the idea is to get a fragrance I like, the fragrance choice at the end of the day when I am out on dates would still be a crowd pleaser and not something only I value. That only applies for date nights If its work, I wouldnt care too much hahaha

    Usually i dont receive compliments too.
    At work people seems prefer to say:

    "This room always smell nice"
    "Hmm, theres something smelling good here"

    Even if im alone at the room.

    I think the 2 or 3 times that they complimented me directly is when i was wearing Cool Water. I was not smelling nothing more from hours, but it still perceptible for others. Cool Water always garn some compliments hours later.

    Nice. People in my office are starting to catch on to my love of fragrances and I think I'm even starting to get 1 or 2 people interested, but yesterday I got a little compliment as well. I was wearing Spicebomb and the girl behind me just says "mmm something smells good! Oh wait, it's gotta be you.." Yep.

    I do get compliments too!
    But... I wear perfumes to please me! Not the others!
    But... if you want to please others...
    Its not a selfish thing!
    Many people tell me; "I like your fagrance today" and "I dont like your fagrance today"
    But in the end what really matters is what I think!
