    For compliments, I'd go with ADG, gets complimented almost instantly and universally.

    For longevity, DHI by Dior may be the most appropriate choice among the 3.

    Well, if you like AdG the most, and don't care if you don't smell unique, then certainly get the AdG.

    If you like A*Men - but not the first 30 minutes or so, you may enjoy Pure Havane or Pure Malt. They share the A*Men DNA, but don't have the harshness of A*Men's opening (and are actually quite superior IMO).
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    9. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    10. Creed - Virgin Island Water

    Having used all three, if you're looking just for which one gets the most female compliments, hands down it's AdG.

    You will smell like lots of other guys everywhere you go. But you will smell good.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    AdG will get you the most compliments. And of the three, I like it most.

    Dior Homme and Dior Homme Intense are very good scents, though not for everybody.

    AMen is highly acclaimed here at BN, however I just think it is a dissonant mess.

    Get whatever you like best.

    As far as compliments from ladies go you will get most with Acqua Di Gio.

    Out of the three, my favorite is A*Men. But Acqua di Gio is probably the best if you're looking for compliments.

    Good luck!

    I could tell you my pick, but it's your nose and your taste that matters.

    THIS!

    P.S. OK, I'll add my pick. Of the three, I'd go with AdG. 2nd place: Dior Homme.

    No doubt here, Acqua di Gio get most compliments. Second, Dior Homme Intense.

    I love A*men but not everyone like this.

    Dude, wear what you absolutely love!

    Spray all three of them on each point of your arms, and get the one that you can't keep off your nose.

    You will make the right decision !

    AdG is your safest complement getter.
    Not sure about DHI since I never tried it.
    A*Men is also a huge compliment getter and my personal favorite. However, it is not as versatile as the former.
    If you're looking for compliments, any time, anywhere, AdG.
    If you're looking for compliments on a special event -or date-, Angel Men.

    I'd go with the Dior Homme Intense, it's extremely versatile (casual wear, club setting, date, formal wear, etc. basically only not good for working out)...it's also the best fragrance of those three in my opinion.

    AdG is the safest bet. A*men smells harsh ay start then like a dessert which some women will not like this. DHI is safer than A*men but imho doesn't get them compliments like AdG so you can see where this is going.

    I don't understand the comments about ADG getting you the most compliments. If female compliments are what you are after, D.H.I. by miles, should be your choice. Not just the fantstic scent, but the quality of the juice is leaps and bounds ahead of both Aman and ADG. I have all three. When I definitely want compliments, and want to feel like a million dollars, I spray on D.H.I.

    I can't imagine any man would want to smell like an old tramps handbag so the DHI should be binned. Definitely not a compliment getter, just a cheap, sickly synthetic mess.

    Not too keen on your other choices either but i guess ADG would be pretty safe.

    Every woman I've EVER dated has jumped my bones when wearing ADG. I love it myself, but surpass wearing it usually because I smell it everywhere. Then again, who cares I guess. You don't see guys go out on a limb to find some crazy deodorant because they don't want to smell like the average guy wearing Axe or Old Spice, so as noted earlier, wear what you like.

    If what you want is compliments, AdG is the safe choice. Been around for years and women like it because 50% of the guys they ever liked or dated wore it. Find that boring myself, but you want compliments.

    The best crafted scent on your short, horny young guy wish list is DHI. I was pessimistic about this one seeing all the attention here. And then I tried it. Very nice stuff.

    A*Men is as earlier noted a "dissonant" mess IMO. I actually kind of like the scent, but have run into probelms every time I have worn it. But then, I am not your target audience, so I'd say go with your own gut.
