Creed MI. Hands down
I know we wear fragrances first and foremost for ourselves and what we personally like, but I was wondering what your partner likes on you, especially if it is not your favorite.
Though I like L'eau d'Issey, Individuel, and Lalique pour homme, my wife really likes Dunhill Desire Blue and Chrome on me.
Creed MI. Hands down
He actually dislikes the majority of fragrances I wear. But he recently said he liked what I was wearing, which was Invasion Barbare.
Currently single, but the scents most liked on me by partners range within quite a wide spectrum: anything from gourmand to leathery, however, the more unspectacular stuff like Boss Bottled, Gucci Envy for Men, Versace Blue Jeans etc. has gotten most complimented, most relished, most favored.
For me it has always been two: Terre d' Hermes EdT (first by miles) and Acqua di Parma Colonia original
She picked it for our wedding in 2006..right after it came out. So the first time I wore it was our wedding night..October..and then honeymoon in Italy. So brings back great memories when I wear it now.

1. Gucci PH II
2. Acqua Di Gio
another that she likes lot and often comments:
Versace Pour Homme
Avon Crisp Forest
Bruno Banani Magic Man
Armani Aqua Di Gio, D&G Light Blue pour Homme, Versace pour Homme, Hugo Boss Bottled and Express Loyalty are her favorites...Fortunately, she's taken to Chanel Coromandel, Platinum Egoiste and He Wood Ocean Wet Wood as of late.
She Hates: Creed Green Irish Tweed (yes I know...she said it smells like wood which makes no sense), anything from Slumberhouse (understandable I guess), 34 Boulevard Saint Germain, Cartier Roadster Sport and YSL La Nuit de L'Homme (also didn't understand)
My wife's favorite on me is Balafre but enjoys anything I decide to put on.
For some odd reason the only fragrance my wife really enjoys on me is Marc Jacobson's for Men by Marc Jacobson. Not my favorite but she loves it.
Oops! I mean to write Marc Jacobs for Men by Marc Jacobs
My girlfriend hates GIT for some reason, says it smells like wood...I don't get it. I'm not really a huge fan either at the price point, I think it smells a bit too soapy on my skin. Either way, I now have 1/2 oz decant that I'm trying to use or sell. I'm getting a sample of Rose 31 this week, interested to see where that fits in on both her list and my list.
Same as hednic, she likes anything I wear.
Les Nuits d'Hadrien
Tobacco Vanille is her favorite.
Top 5 among others...which are most complimented by her..
2. Lalique White
3. Bang by MJ
4. YSL La Nuit
My wife's faves on me are Aventus, Dolce & Gabbana, GIT, Pure Havane and anything sweet and powdery. She has also commented favorably lately about Himalaya and MI. Also LADDM.
MI is a new "like" for her. In the past she could take it or leave it.
She hates most aquatics such as ADG, Issey and the like. She LOATHES D&G Light Blue PH.
I'm wearing one of her past favorites today (Oscar for Men) just to see if she recognizes it. I just reacquired it yesterday and she does not know it yet (at $19.99, I snatched it up).
It's a toss up between LIDGE and Pure Malt. I like both, but neither are my favorites.
My wife's favorites on me are:
1) Creed Aventus
2) by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
3) Bond No. 9 - Bleecker Street
4) by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
5) Thierry Mugler - Pure Havane
LuckilyI also love all of those too. The ones she really likes that I do not are:
Amouage Interlude Man
Bond No. 9 Harrods Swarovski Limited Edition
Current Winter Favorites:
1. House of Matriarch - Blackbird
2. Brückner - Aoud 1
3. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
4. Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 - Generation Man
5. Creed - Royal Oud
6. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
7. Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 - Mortal Skin
8. Ormonde Jayne - Black Gold
9. Creed - Royal English Leather
10. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
None. I am a forever alone guy
My fiancé's favorite is Declaration.
Kouros, Encre Noire, Spice and Wood and Green Irish Tweed.
Vetiver Vert is his favorite of all followed by:
Fille En Aiguilles
In no particular order, with no particular commonalities:
- Ormonde Man
- Bogart Pour Homme
- Gucci Envy
- A&F Fierce
- Vera Wang for Men
- The One
- Terre D'Hermes
- Burberry Touch
- John Varvatos
- Bleecker Street
Thankfully, I enjoy most of these as much as she does, so it works out quite well.
Noir de Noir and Oud Wood
She likes a lot of the stuff I wear, but Sycomore is clearly her supreme favorite. Vétiver Tonka, Etro Patchouly, Vétiver Extraordinaire and Odeur 53 tend to get me some very favorable attention as well...
On her, on the other hand, nothing beats Philosykos...
