    Default Re: What is your #1 head turning scent?

    Positive - Aventus, GIT and OS... oh, and pretty much all Creed Millesimes

    Negative - Tobacco Vanille. No less than four different people voiced the opinion that it was way too sweet, girly and not fitting at all. Guess it just doesn't agree with me. Love the first 30 minutes, but the rest is as described by my hoard of critics.

    Received lots of compliment when I mixed Creed MI and Himalaya.

    LIDGE and Aventus of course.

    Lately, it's been Royal Oud.

    The all time winner is GIT.
    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

    GIT has gotten some compliments.

    With Aventus the heads turn indeed, but the other way.

    Then, granted, I rarely frequent ill-famed neighborhoods (-;

    I love Aventus, but I've never even gotten a compliment from it.

    My head turners:
    - if I'm being bold: Gucci Pour Homme (2003)
    - if I'm being flirty: Hanae Mori, H.M.
    - if I'm wanting to pique someone's curiosity: L'Air du Desert Marocain. Seriously. L'ADDM has gotten me a few "WTF?" comments, but in a good way. I haven't had anyone say they didn't like it, but I've gotten a few questions about it, usually along the lines of "What... is.... that? I really like it, but I've never smelled anything like it."

    Oh, and P.S. What's my #1 negative head turning scent? ...feed me garlic. You'll find out soon enough...

    Default Re: What is your #1 head turning scent?

    The very first day I wore Chanel Allure Edition Blanche I got multiple compliments at work.
    Eaux Des Baux the same and continued all through winter.
    Also, Caron Pour Un Homme
    and Dior Homme gets noticed a fair bit... the only base without a strong hit of Vanilla in the group. I think people like vanilla. We will see how the Spring scents go.

    So far actually, a friend was cutting my hair and said it smelled real nice but I suspect it was the Givenchy Insense I was wearing...

    I must admit the same...I HATE the bloody hype, but my wife only compliments my frag. when it is Aventus. On the flip side, Cuir d' Arabie usually turns heads the opposite direction!!!
