Thread: Top Complimented Niche?
I noticed on the "most complimented" frags list there are not many Niche scents other than Creed's towards the top. So what say you what are your most complimented Niche frags by the general public? Looking to try some samples that also double as people pleasers for work place/date?

Aventus is supposed to get compliments (though I never get any, nor do I care really)
Tobacco Vanille is pretty popular with both men and women

Green Irish Tweed & Black Aoud
In no particular order:
Acqua di Parma Colonia / Essenza
I keep repping Creed because to my nose and to those around me it satisfies every single time. Aventus and MI are definite compliment getters.
probably Tobacco Vanille...that's about it. Niche ain't good at getting compliments.
My sales thread
I rarely get compliments, but the last time I remember getting one was when I wore Green Irish Tweed.
would add New Haarlem to the ones mentioned.
Just last week I had a woman at the hotel where I was staying heap praise on my Green Irish Tweed. However, I would have to say Aventus is the top attention getter that I own. I look forward to seeing if Musc Ravageur is as popular once I get off my lazy butt and purchase a bottle.
I don't get too many compliments with Niche fragrances. Then again, I only own decants of MI, OS, and NY Oud. I believe OS was the only one that turned heads.
Not exactly compliments, but Creed's Aventus and Silver Mountain Water get noticed when I wear them.
Aventus. I should wear Windsor more often
