    I don't care about the one she likes but actually about the ones she doesn't....The other day she threatened me that she'll throw the bottle away if I ever wear it again and it was B*Men!!! (it is currently one of my favorites )
    Few others which are on the hit list are:
    Kouros, VC&A pH & Aramis.

    My wife's absolute favourite is Hermes Equipage. Luckily I love it too and happily she likes the old school stuff like Bel Ami/Egoiste etc so I am one happy chappy!!

    My wife likes when I wear Allure Sport, almost always telling me I smell good. But Kenzo Power is her favorite on me, she has said so many times. That is great, but I'm not really into Kenzo Power anymore. She likes anything Chanel that I own (Bleu, Allure, Allure Sport)

    Interestingly, my fianc and I just had a discussion about this.

    I have a friend in the industry, and we met him for coffee over the weekend. He always brings me goodies, and he brought 2 bottles of creed with him. One was santal, the other aventus. I still have some aventus left, so I was going to take the santal.

    My fianc says, how about you let ME decide! She sprays each on napkins, and makes this twisted disgusted face when she smelled aventus. But seemed to love santal.

    In the back of my mind, I'm thinking...she always does this. Just wait until next time I wear aventus.

    So the very next day, I picked her up and she says "mmm you smell amazing, is that the new one?"

    I bust out laughing, and said, nope, it's the one you hated!

    Then she says, well it smelled terrible on the napkin, but on you it smells amazing.

    Awwww LOL

    My Wife bought a fair chunk of my collection, so she's biased.

    Stuff I bought and she likes is Declaration Essence, Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee, and Pure Havane.

    Seems to me woman prefer designer over niche. Interesting. Makes sense... Designer is more... "POP".

    My girlfriend usually compliment most of my fragrances so I rather know what she dislike than like (because she doesnt compliment me then lol) but her absolute favourites are

    Gucci PH II and LIDGE
    Other she compliments me often are:
    Acqua Di Gio, Encre Noire, Dior Homme and Dior Homme Intense.

    She rarely comments my niche samples that I seldom wear but I know that she likes Montale Black Musk and Tauer L' Air Du Desert Marocain.
    TOP 3 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Lalique Encre Noire
    3. Creed Millesime Imperial


    TOP 3 cold weather:

    1. Dior Homme
    2. Eau Des Baux
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme

    Most dates, as well as female friends and acquaintances in general enjoyed, so far, gourmands like Gucci Envy or Boss Bottled the most.

    My exes absolute favorite on me was Lyric Man. She also really liked oddities like Skarb, L'Anarchiste, Michael Storer's Djin, M/Mink, Jubilation XXV (only mention this as it seems a lot of people's partners dislike it).

    Too bad she was evil incarnate.

    Actually 'liked' doesn't come close.

    It knocks her bandy.

    My spouse would like me to wear gourmand type fragrances. Unfortunately, i don't like them generally speaking. (Some few exceptions exist.) Of my current/recent favourites she likes Memoir Man and Ungaro III . Gucci Envy for men also pleases her, but i don't wear it so often.
