    Default I've had Terre D'Hermes for three months without any female compliments. Anyone else experience this

    My guy friends like it a lot and actually comment on it, but I have yet to get a single compliment from a female. I knew I wasn't buying a lady killer at the time of purchase, but for three months to go buy without ANYTHING?! What is going on here?

    Compliments are fleeting. They will come when you least expect it. Don't give up.

    Agreed. If you want compliments, you're gonna need Curve, Abercrombie Fierce, and Acqua Di Gio. Those are 100% guaranteed or your money back compliment getters. It's like girls have an unspoken obligation to compliment a man wearing any of those. Unfortunately, Terre D'Hermes is not on that list. It smells very nice, but is more for your enjoyment than a woman's. Unless she's really into orange peels and the smell of rocks.

    Saw this and had to share. I've been doing the new scent-hobby for about a month, just reading a lot and trying out a wide variety of samples--no particular plan in mind except that my wife has to like it. Today I got my first compliment at an independent coffee shop from the (male) barista. Wasn't Bvlgari or GiT, both of which I've used. It was Khaliji--the $3 synthetic roll-on. Who knew!

    I went through the same experience, but with Rive Gauche - in fact, I was wearing Rive Gauche on two dates that never led anywhere, none of the two persons I have dated seemed to even notice it

    I never receive compliments from strangers, they just give me the kind of look that says more than words whilst indulging in my smell, moving a little closer. You are probably too good/unsafe looking!

    Mesaboogie is correct - women seem to have very different tastes to men in the smell department. I sometimes wonder if it's the same kind of thing as a dog loving nothing better than rolling around in a steaming pile of $hit!

    When I left my old job I received a bottle of Acqua di Gio and a bottle of Issey Miyake Pour Homme from the girls I worked with.

    I can't stand either of them, but they were begging me to spray it on then and there.

    Very weird. Just wear what you like.
